  • Update: GT Advanced Technologies Agrees On A Settlement With Apple [View article]
    Doesn't make sense unless your supply is so vast it's viable. Don't know, Traddict. I have a two year time line on GTAT. And only time will tell. Good luck to all! Johnny/San Antonio

    Utilizing my time travel ability and looking back 2 months...NOW is when we need a "magic wand"...Love your articles Matt. My time is important and the two things I rank as Time Well Spent is lunch with Red McCombs, and reading any of your articles! :O)

    The total came to just about what I lost on GTAT. " I'm going to lose money ($7,556) and that hurts. No one to blame but myself." Worth every cent. Just astounding! Casual and Matt may have used a less expensive balm to sooth the pain, however, music has always worked for me. Good Luck To All! Johnny / San Antonio

    "Standing by your word" when every assumption that your word was based on is no longer in effect doesn't make much sense." Very wise observation. I bought at a higher price than most ( under 500 shares). Regardless, I'm going to lose money ($7,556) and that hurts. No one to blame but myself..you can do the math and see how late I got in, however, at the time a $4 per shr profit seemed a reasonable and attainable amount. I feel better confessing my ignorance, and posts like your's (Dumpster) and the initial article (and last post) from Casual make S.A. my place to come for celebration and to cry in my beer! Best Of Luck To All! Johnny / San Antonio ..... on the up side: in five weeks I'll have seen: Carlos Santana / Paul McCartney / Dave Mason and The Eagles all in a venue that seats 1,700! It could always be worse.

    I feel very off plum regarding GTAT. On the up side, I've never been sucked in like this before and will refrain from speculation in the future (as much as possible) and consider it a lesson learned. All that cash ...."Poof"! However, for the sake of standing by my word, I'll be back 9/17/16....see my September post.. and observe where we are in two years. Certainly can't sell this..who'd want it?. A buy out? Perhaps. But at what price? $1? In my case, aside from feeling terrible, there's nothing else to do but wait and consider it a hard lesson learned late in life. Best of luck to All! Johnny/San Antonio

    Samberpax, I came to investing late in life..I've said that before and will no doubt repeat myself as I get older. First lesson learned was: do not let other people control your money. Waay back when I had Power Of Attorney over my step mother's estate, we (Clear Channel) were just getting started and I figured, "Well, Lynch has handled her financial affairs forever and all she cared about was the dividend checks anyway, I'll continue with them at the helm." Bad. I'm in San Antonio trying to build a media monster from the ground up, and get a call from some guy with Lynch in New Jersey spewing things to the affect, "I've just saved your life!" What he'd done is sell 3,600+ shares of Exxon after an unfavorable ruling on the Valdez fiasco. "I don't recall you asking me first. I don't have a "discretionary account" with your firm so I'm calling the SEC", I growled in a Darth Vader voice. In a few short weeks, the SEC came through and all returned to normal. I have handled things with my own two hands since. And yes, some very witty, clever writers have a "bank" of crunchers where they (the author) just plug 'em in. I have yet to spot one anywhere on S.A. I come to learn and give you my latest grandson count: Six (6) come November. Being an aged crip can be tedious...or you can make it the opposite.

  • GT Advanced Technologies: Are We Closer To A Bottom? [View article]
    Scottdetfan.."Never say Never." Oh, so very true. I could list many examples we'd all be, "oh, yea, sure" familiar with. It wouldn't be a saying Carved In Granite were it not true.

    Go with your gut and I wish you only the best..Johnny / San Antonio

    Thanks, CA from those of us at Rancho Relaxo! Another fine article penned by one of our very favorite authors...covering out favorite Loooong stock. I read you, Matt among others and just say, "Dang, I wish I could write!" My book on Clear Channel..'74 through 2000 is entering it''s third year...I have great admiration for you and others able to pull it off with compelling style. Stay well..Johnny/San Antonio.

    SOG35, we see GTAT at or about $23 in the next 24 mos. With the wealth of knowledge here and everywhere else on S.A. we've saved a tidy sum by not attending the various "financial presentations" in Austin and Round Rock.

    The lasers are blinding and those willing to pony up $2500-$3000 to attend the "uber level super inside secret stuff" seminars look like cattle off to the slaughter...johnny

    Very well done, CA. I mentioned following an article by Matt that those of us long on GTAT should consider meeting on S.A. in September 2016 and see where we are as opposed to now. Investing can be many things..it keeps my old heart pumping. Long on this stock and it's many talents.

  • GT Advanced Technologies Is On Target To Produce Sapphire For The iWatch And iPhone 6 [View article]
    Long term is a phrase made for this stock. There will be times, IMO, when GTAT will experience phenomenal quarters and go past $20. Certainly the dips can and will go lower than what we've seen last week. For me, with limited investment knowledge and a proclivity for reading the posts of others along with the authors I admire (Matt being one primary)...I quit giving my money to others to invest for me after Lynch churned us out of 3,800 shares of Exxon without asking me first. Being in a wheel chair gives me ample time to research on my own and act accordingly..a lesson hard learned, but what the heck...the mistakes aren't repeated. If GTAT missed the Oscar..so what? There's still Emmy, Tony and Grammy. This is a versatile stock with great days ahead. We're going to Zurich in mid October and may not be posting until Grandson #6 arrives and we get back for Thanksgiving. Only the best to all...johnny

    If anyone caught my analogy ..that being many singular artists have Oscars, Grammys, Emmys and Tonys on their shelves..should understand you simply keep working. Winning them all in a year isn't going to happen. However, if you are very good at your craft, such as GTAT, a year when you are nominated and don't win isn't going to phase a consummate pro. I'm not unable to see the chance of snagging a few more on a dip! We can check in a year or two and see where this stock is relative to today's close. I'll put it on iCal and, assuming I'm still here in two years, will bring up the topic...Very Good Wishes To All, j.

  • GT Advanced Technologies' Next Frontier: Sapphire Composite Cover Screens For Mobile Devices And Point-Of-Sale Scanners [View article]
    I admire S.A. and Matt because they dig into a story (stock) and reveal it's vast number of positives and negatives. The ones that go unreported by analysts so self absorbed they care more about getting their names out and churning the pot than researching the impact stocks will generate down the road. Certainly the 9th of September is widely anticipated...it's just unfortunate that the majority of investors are being manipulated by a handful of Big Money Boys and their Toadies being paid to spread whatever they tell them to. "Hurtssogood" gets it with his reference to Solar. GTAT's applications are many. All it takes is patience and knowing where the smart ones gather...right here.

    Matt makes many valid points. GTAT isn't a one trick pony. Like Sinatra, Streisand and others who have received Grammys and Oscars, GTAT's future success isn't tied to Apple or any 1 entity. It excels in many areas...all of which combine to make this a great long term stock.
