  • Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash [View article]
    I think you are missing the main reason for what hi is writing. He writes for the number of clicks he can get. Look at the title he picked. How ordinary is it !!!! You do not see any exaggerations, right?
    Or are you saying it is full of exaggerations, like me?

    This guy is now known as the man of 180 degree turns in his views. He does not care. He has reasons to be opposite with himself. Every article he writes is either making comment of super buy opportunity, or super sell opportunity, nothing in between.

    I have read his articles in the past, but now I only read the comments, which are telling better what his article is saying.

    Just like he shares his comments on stocks, I like to share my comment on his articles. He may be one of the authors that writes the most articles on this site. He obviously discovered the treasury in the clicks of readers. Just write and write with the wildest ideas. No matter how accurate he is, the only important thing is how many clicks he gets.

    All of these are proven facts. Do not even try to change your reader's view on this. They are educated enough to have their own opinion.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - The Next (10/8/12) [View article]
    Netflix (NFLX) is a stock Cramer thinks is not worth the risk.

    and Cramer is a person that I think is not worth the attention.

  • Time To Short Research In Motion [View article]
    Think about an investor who lost everything he had. Some investors like this will die and will not be able to come back and become a winner. But, you heard some of them succeeded in staying alive with very little cash and after a while they were back in investing, with hope and patience, they became winners again.

    I see RIM similar with an investor who lost almost everything they had, but they are still alive. If a company was able to make a smart phone, and a tablet once in the past, and before everyone else, I believe they will make their better versions again, and be able to compete in this market and become leader again.

    Think of Apple's last 10 years. They were always behind Microsoft and not known enough. But, all of a sudden the winds changed for the benefits of Apple.

    This is going to happen for RIM as well. But, I cannot predict only when. I am just an individual, not a certified or licensed analyst who can investigate this company close enough.

    Hope this helps your thinking about RIM.

    Take RIM like a new company in the first year of their business. More than increasing their revenue, they will invest in attracting new customers. I see RIM in a similar situation. They are at a new re-beginning.

  • Kick Far Overbought, Triple Topped Lululemon To The Curb [View article]
    You are wasting your time for unfruitful discussion. Leave this guy by himself. That is my humble suggestions. You will not be able to change his choice from Wal-Mart to another polo brand. LULU may go up or down, but not because this author likes to buy his polos at wal-mart.

    One suggestion to him: Keep in mind that there are lots of readers who know more than some authors here. Writing an article does not make you more knowledgeable than your readers.

  • Tesla's First Red Flag [View article]
    Rather than calling this case a Red flag, and preferring to stay away from TSLA, I prefer to take this is an innocent mistake, if it is defined as a mistake, and be part of TSLA. I will not consider this was a pre-made scenario that must have been kept as a secret from public and reveal it after the stock rises enough to take some advantages for TESLA.

    I believe Elon Musk is pretty much aware of where he is placed by public and investors. He is holding the golden key for more profits than today. He will not hand over the key to someone else before he extracts everything possible. If he makes a mistake, I believe he will honestly admit that and apologize and pay the cost in terms of losing some value of stock. But, later he will gain back multiple times of that cost.

    I prefer to count the number of green flags and go with Elon Musk. There is certainly a bright future. Every drop is an opportunity for more and cheaper buy. Just be cautious and keep some cash for any downs.

  • S&P 500 Most Heavily Shorted Stocks [View article]
    So, what does this mean to the rest of us who are not involved in any short or long positions in those stocks yet?

    Should we consider taking a long or short position in FSLR, and in BIG?

    Any experience from the past will be appreciated.

  • Groupon Finally Lands On Planet Earth [View article]
    If GRPN did it once, I believe they will do it again. Once they convinced the entire public for the $20 value of their stock. and I am sure they will be above $5 again, if not above $10, some day. This market is full with genius people of how to speculate a stock either way and GRPN is offering a big opportunity upwards, no matter what the facts sheet says.
    and I am a buyer at $2.76 or around, without needing to wait for lower price. If I lose, how much can I lose? But, if I win, I believe it will be more rewarding than the risk of losing.

    If this is how you think, I would suggest to short Berkshire Hathaway.
    It has the most room to fall down.

  • Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Q3 2013 Earnings Preview [View article]
    With the overall markets being at their peak levels, I am guessing that GMCR will report positive earnings and news to take the advantage of last days/weeks of this overall positive climate in the markets.

    After the current earnings season is over, an overall decline is expected, although cannot guess how big. Then the time will come for GMCR to start dropping as well.

    They are still the leader of their specific industry and they are not resting. They continue to improve their products and business from every angle.

  • 5 Reasons To Buy Michael Kors Holdings Ahead Of Next Week's Earnings [View article]
    Thanks for the nice article.

    My reason to buy:

    3 months ago, this stock hit $65 after the earnings. Now, I assume, the company will announce another profitable quarter. That will mean the value of the company should have been increased that much more. So, the stock should go to $65 + the value added in the last quarter.

    But, I also know, this is not the way stock market values the stocks.
    At least I wanted to share my perspective.

  • Kick Far Overbought, Triple Topped Lululemon To The Curb [View article]
    Is this article written to teach us how to buy our polo shirts?
    then why is it published on site of investment discussions?

    I am also surprised to see how the author can argue with his readers for personal choices of anything that is not related to investing.

    it was waste of time.

  • Workday's Bubble Is About To Pop [View article]
    I checked the job postings on WDAY's site:

    What I see is the passion for growth, and this seems to be including some markets in overseas. I do not know how many customers they have outside the US, but this is like fashion. Once it starts to be known, then it spreads exponentially. That is what happened with SAP.

    The reason of the overvalued current price may be depending on this future hopes. And, I would like to think that a company who does not have serious plans on this kind of growth would not open this many positions. In other words, they seem to be getting ready for a world brand in their market segment. At the same time, they may add new products to their portfolio.

    Rather than the current facts, it is the value of the future hopes that sets the price of shares. I think that is the case with WDAY. It is already at the value that might be real 2 years later.

    Besides all these good things, in case of any unexpected bad news like management shake up etc, they will loose a lot. Not really sure where this will go in the near future, but in the long term, it may be a new SAP.
