  • The Pros, Cons, And Questions From The InvenSense Report [View article]
    Over the last four years the revenue trend has been up, now it is up to management to keep costs down at INVN and increase gross profits for a better bottom line and keep the shareholders happy. And if the new tech at INTC is as promised that should bring increased demand for up-to-date hi-tech products, namely computers. Thanks for reinforcing my own research or opinions on the companies covered.

  • What 3D Systems Needs For A Turnaround [View article]
    I just add a small position in HPQ since it pays a dividend and why lose money with what the banks pay. I missed taking profits on last years wild ride with DDD since I still a buy and hold guy. I stopped buying when the stock was in the sixties. Maybe I should have stopped sooner, no matter. As a leader in this field, DDD is really a holding company getting its act together with projected profits this year increasing in the future. Time will tell like always.

  • Expect Clarity On GE's Massive Back-To-Roots Restructuring [View article]
    Those rules were set up by FDR in the 30s' to protect the people and the markets from crashes and then the congress with the help on then President Clinton repealed them putting the banks and stock market firms together where money albeit mortgages encouraged the pumping of home sales by a dishonest segment of the banking industry. Of course, anything to destroy capitalism. But don't get me started on 'options' with the lost value to shareholders.

  • 3D Systems Acknowledges Total Lack Of Visibility [View article]
    What would be interesting would an evaluation of each of the acquisitions and how they are planning to profit from each one. Those are the reasons that management buy other companies for gain. A negative thought might be that the acquisitions or at least some of them could have been set ups to enrich friends? But I really hope that the true reasons for the acquisitions are explained with positive earnings soon. And at least a number of scourses have provided increasing eps estimates for 2015 and 2016.
    A history of how the over 50? acquisitions are working out could be very useful for management. But management is more than likely already doing this. This information also should be in the annual report.

  • Isis Pharmaceuticals: Another Regeneron (Or Even Better) In The Making? [View article]
    Let's hope the R&D doesn't fail for ISIS since this a pure play on the success of new drugs that other drug companies pay for and sell, I wonder what real returns ISIS is getting?

  • General Electric's Future Dividend Growth [View article]
    To me it is not good business to be granting stock instead of cash to any employees in the many businesses of the world. It is like 'here we don't have to pay the employees, we can just print up stock shares, it will cut the value of all the other owners (investors') of shares, but what do we care, we got ours and we can give ourselves more. Liberal schools teach liberal business management so we can be as poor as most of the world is today. The bad bosses need to go and did you ever see a Democrat as a friend of business and not a socialist in sheep clothing. I may be wrong here, but on the other hand, some of the deeply religious Republicans
    could care less unless it controlled by the ?

  • Why 3D Systems Stock Remains A Great Short To $20 [View article]
    I have seen estimates of revenue growth for DDD ranging from 21% to 27% from a number of brokers to Barron's. The shorts lost a lot money while
    DDD was reaching for the stars last year, and the shorts lose if when the stock price goes up. Who do you believe? But with a gross margin of over 57%, I think I stay a bull a while longer, at least for this stock.

  • 3D Systems Acknowledges Total Lack Of Visibility [View article]
    Going from a growth rate of over 57% to only 27% is truly disappointing. It is so sad when compared to the percent growth with relation to the fact 3D Systems was a smaller company before the many acquisitions the company has made over the past several years to stay ahead of the competition. This is just like the business strategic of SSYS, a main business rival. I am long and betting that with the estimated over a dollar earning and an increased growth, ROE, and net income, DDD's price is in the ballpark and will grow.
    Other than ads for some companies, can anyone name 3D companies making money with the latest 3D or 4D technologies?

  • 3D Systems: Pride Comes Before The Fall [View article]
    DDD has a 21% revenue growth this year
    plus income, what does Carbon3D have?
    This seems like an article to promote the
    newcomer, whereas 3D Systems has been
    around awhile and expand through acquisitions
    of new technology and developments.

  • 3D Systems: Weighing The Bankruptcy Risk [View article]
    After reading your article again, you appear to a 'short' looking for fast money. But I could be wrong. Your opinions are not and do not match the estimates of many professional analyzers who are in the business world. True, they could be wrong too. Its all who to believe? 3DS has earnings where some of their competition does not. A far-out thought might be if 3DS were cheap enough APPLE could buy them.

  • Intel Joins The Indoor Location Chip Revolution [View article]
    People do need to know where some people or young children are all the time. Though for many people having someone knowing where you all the time are can take the fun out of say, surprises or secrets that you may want to keep. Who is in charge of responsible for supervising the users of these chips. 1984 and the thought police?

  • JPMorgan's fund performance numbers are hard to recreate [View news story]
    Numbers are just numbers like statistics can say anything. Long term results especially with dividends can be said to bring the best returns, but what do I know? JPM increased their cap. requirement over last year.
