  • Time To Sell Revolution Lighting Technologies [View article]
    Well, we shall see, as they report March 16. I would expect a good to blowout quarter or they will drop below $1 and be on the pink sheets. I don't see LaPenta and Schafer letting that happen.

  • Fortinet: Why Net Profit Declined 43% [View article]
    good thought and a good thing to do perhaps but if so it should have been put forth as a factor in rising expenses.

  • Bloomberg: Apple's first car could arrive by 2020 [View news story]
    I would question an Apple Car. I think they are quite a bit smarter than Google in investing money and not pissing it away. What I would believe is Apple could take over control of the vehicle entertainment complex. Something like a built in Apple phone, internet capability, TV, radio. All the bells and whistles.

  • GT Advanced Technologies Inc. Suspended By Nasdaq [View article]
    it is not good business to drive your suppliers bankrupt. i have to believe apple knows that. so they either had a jackass handling this deal or this supplier did some very funny stuff.

  • Should Cisco Split? [View article]
    One of IBMs downfall was their proprietary software loaded with legacy support for old product. The software becomes very complex and needs much testing. Other more nimble players came in, not constrained by legacy issues and with much simpler code. There is competition already chipping away at Cisco product. It's only a matter of time. I postulate a Cisco breakup into more nimble entities could help them keep their dominance. Not saying break it all up, but perhaps in areas it is facing accelerated competition.

  • Should Cisco Split? [View article]
    Cisco's strength is their marketing. You can't go wrong buying Cisco gear. Sound familiar? Unfortunately, at some point in time, it will fall apart just like it did at IBM. Having worked there, their very poor engineering managers can do no wrong since their marketing makes them look like winners. Chambers fails to realize his engineering managers are dragging him down. I fully believe he is a great leader. He just doesn't see his engineering leadership is flawed.

  • Texas Instruments: A Successful Transformation Play And Increasing Dividends [View article]
    Major competitors in the market include Intel (NASDAQ:INTC), Texas Instruments, Micron Technology (NASDAQ:MU) and Advanced Micro Devices (NYSE:AMD)

    i am perplexed. I don't see any of these companies as big in analog. Maybe i have been under a rock the last few years.
