  • Why A Beaten Down Cree Could Be A Smart Long-Term Investment [View article]
    I agree with all of the above posts. I have the Cree 3 way bulb and it performs exactly like an incandescent with about a 90% savings and a 10 year warranty. I personally believe LED is the lighting of the future. The question is what company will be the future industry leader? Cree has the ability to be that company. I agree also that Cree needs to expand their outlets. I have been to many Home Depots and although Cree has a large exposure it is not displayed well. When I purchased my 3 way bulb I had to walk around the lighting section searching for it. I finally had to ask where they were and was taken to a small display in the middle of an isle. These bulbs should be displayed in a section all together. I don't know what the deal is with Home Depot but I think they would do better to expand their products to other outlets such as Lowes and Walmart.

  • Cree higher following M&A rumors [View news story]
    I bought my first home use LED bulb this week. I bought the new Cree 3 way LED bulb. The bulb performs just as advertised. I paid $21.97 at Home Depot. I have to say that I was a little disappointed at the way Home Depot displayed this new bulb. After walking around looking for it for sometime I finally asked a clerk if they carried the bulb. He then walked me to a small display in the middle of the isle which was hardly visible. This bulb should definitely be on an end cap on display. I think it would sell well. The stats on the bulb are 30/60/100. The watts used are 3/8/18. There is a 10 year warranty on the bulb. The bulb puts out a soft white color and there is a very noticeable change in the different light settings. If you did not know it wasn't an incandescent you could not tell the difference.

  • Cree higher following M&A rumors [View news story]
    I don't know if HD is bullying them but if you have been to a Home Depot lately Cree is getting the marketing presence big time from Home Depot. Cree bulbs are on display and well advertized. Home Depot has over 2000 stores world wide. That is a huge presence.

  • Factors That Can Lower Our Valuation For Cree By 30% [View article]
    The LED is the greatest change in lighting in over 100 years. It will literally replace the incandescent bulb, unlike the fluorescent being forced on us by our government. The energy savings on LED lighting will drive these bulbs world wide. I am normally a short term trader but I have a long term position in CREE.

  • PetSmart - Smart Time To Pick Up Some Shares [View article]
    I agree with the author on all points. This happened about a year ago with this stock after an earnings release. The drop wasn't as substantial as this time but it made a nice recovery at that time. The earnings weren't bad it was the guidance that brought it down. I'm going to wait for this to shakeout a bit and I will definitely be a buyer.

  • Nokia reportedly makes Indian tax offer; EU issues patent warning [View news story]
    The problem with these guys is they hurt their own companies also. The French governments recent decision to get directly involved with mergers and acquisitions is part of the reason for Alcatel Lucents stock lagging recently. They like to micro manage, the consequences are secondary.

  • Alcatel-Lucent: A Contrarian Buy At $4? [View article]
    Not so sure. With the French government now getting involved in mergers or buyouts the chances of this may go down substantially.

    Does GOGO get a cut of the customers who connect in flight or do they only get the fee paid by the airline?

  • Allied Nevada Gold - After Osisko, Allied Nevada Is A Prime Takeover Target [View article]
    Okay thanks. I missed that. I'm not sure exactly what function the crusher has and if they would be able to operate at full potential.

    @Omer

    What's your take on the current problem with the crusher? In the conference call they said it would be fixed by the end of May. Without this crusher in service are they still able to operate?

    @asH9

    I am currently using the beta version of Win 8.1. I agree with you on Cortana. The voice recognition is amazing. Seldom do I have to repeat a command.

    @AH
    I don't see AMD falling that low but who knows. If it does I'll be buying also.
