  • Bank Of America Q1 2015 Earnings: Disappointment All Around [View article]
    Don't beat yourself up. This happens to everyone. We all buy stocks that go the wrong way. Before you buy your next stock know what your out will be should it drop and stick to it. If you lose all your money you will be out permanently. Hang in there.

  • Cree promises 30% performance gain with new LED lighting modules [View news story]
    I have owned Cree stock in the past but I am currently out of it. Although I agree with all that you say about Cree I have a huge problem with there Home Depot deal. They have limited their distribution to one retailer at a time when margins on LED bulbs is rapidly deteriorating. Home Depot is doing them no favors. They are not prominently displayed over any other brand. Cree needs to expand their distribution and increase their sales. Until they do this I will be on the side lines. Good luck.

  • Zacks' Bear Of The Day: Ford [View article]
    This is what Zacks does. They call the sell at or very near the bottom. They are the worst of the worst. I am not saying that Ford is a buy or sell at this point but it takes no talent to call a sell after a stock has fallen near 52 week lows. Is that beneficial to investors? A monkey could do that and it would more then likely be the wrong call.

    Check out this video of the Santelli report from Oct. 23. He speaks on this same referendum. If you don't want to watch it all the part on the referendum is 1:13 into the video.

  • Cree Could Slip Below $20 [View article]
    Good article Chris. I totally agree that Cree must get out of the Home Depot deal. I have never understood that deal. Maybe you can shine some light on that if you have any info on why that deal was ever constructed. Also what the terms are. Although margins were down its the volume that is really the problem. You may be right on the current decline of LED sales in China but I see this as a temporary situation. LED is far to efficient and will continue to increase as the light source of the world. Cree needs to get its product on the shelves of many more retailers.

    Just think these guys get paid to do this. It's the equivalent of predicting the weather for Wednesday on Thursday.

  • Cree -10.7% AH; gross margin drop takes a toll on EPS [View news story]
    Cree's entry into the consumer space consists of Home Depot. The margins are okay if the volume is higher. Cree will not increase their volume if they continue their ridiculous deal with Home Depot. They must get their products to other outlets to compete with the current LED market. This is a major screw up by the current management. Cree can compete head to head with any LED manufacturer but not when they limit themselves to one location.

  • GT Advanced Technologies Bankruptcy Update [View article]
    I have been in the market for many years and I have actually lost money on companies that have filed bankruptcy. One was Worldcom and the other was a small unknown company. In both of those cases the management deceived the shareholders. Also in both of those cases there was a warning to some degree as both stocks began to trade down in price for sometime before the actual bankruptcy. When I say trade down I mean down in the low single digits. The thing I found most interesting (and very sad for the shareholders) was the fact that GTAT was close to $11.00 when it stopped trading and within an hour declared bankruptcy. I actually had GTAT on my ticker and was looking for what I thought was a good entry point. Fortunately for me I didn't get in before the stock stopped trading. I researched this company thoroughly and although it had its problems I was totally shocked at what occurred with this stock. I honestly believe only someone with inside information could have predicted the final outcome of this company.

  • Here's Why We Believe Cree Is Still Worth $58 [View article]
    @wjddp

    I agree. I don't understand the Home Depot deal. I wish someone could explain to me how you can limit your product to one store. Cree could easily out sell GE and Phillips side by side. There bulbs are more efficient and there priced the same or lower. The only other time I have seen a one company deal like this is in the cell phone market. It makes no sense to me. LED bulbs are now showing up everywhere and Cree is only in Home Depot.
