  • Nokia: Things Are Looking Up  [View article]
    Please explain to me how Nokia is going to change the markets if they are losing momentum in the US. The third world countries, sure they are getting a piece of the pie but overall don't you think that in order for Nokia to succeed they will have to get off the Windows platform? Right now the market share of the top three go to Android, iOS and Blackberry (unless someone wants to correct that with a source) Anyways I'm just asking a question because Nokia's price doesn't make a whole lot of sense correlating to the market.

  • A $3.9B funding shortfall could lead the $12/share special dividend attached to Carl Icahn and Southeastern Asset's bid for Dell (DELL -0.1%) to fall to $8.50-$9.35/share, argues Dell's special committee in a presentation justifying its rejection of the offer in favor of Michael Dell/Silver Lake's $13.65/share deal. The committee argues Icahn/Southeastern are underestimating minimum cash needs by $1.7B, and ignoring the need for $1.4B in cash for maturing debt. The presentation amusingly tries to paint as bleak a picture as possible for Dell, highlighting its PC share losses, declining margins, relatively low R&D spend, and x86 server pricing risks (in spite of recent share gains). Shareholders vote on July 18.  [View news story]
    It's because Michael Dell wants to get a steal price and make more money for himself

  • More from Elon Musk (previous): The exec says 25% of people who test drive a Model S end up buying one, a higher ratio than it expected and a decent rate for a car just named Motor Trend's Car of the Year. Tesla Motors (TSLA -1.1%) will make another big announcement on June 20. If the past is prelude, look for some hints from Musk well before then.  [View news story]
    Very interesting take by Musk, should have better interviewers though. CNBC did not ask the key questions

  • More on Chico's (CHS) Q1 miss: Comps growth was flat during the period versus a 9.6% increase in Q1 2012 (a tough compare). Comps breakdown: Namesake/Soma Intimates -2.8%; White House - Black Market +6.4%. Gross margin fell 50 basis points Y/Y as unseasonably cool weather forced a high level of promotions on some merchandise. Inventories rose 2.3%. Shares -6.4% premarket. (PR[View news story]
    what do you mean that Chico needs to break out the Soma results? I am interested in investing in this company, any advice?

  • IDC has again raised its tablet forecasts: the firm now expects shipments to grow 58.7% in 2013 to 229.3M units. That's up from a March forecast of 190.9M units, which itself was up from a forecast of 172.4M. 55% of shipments are expected to involve sub-8" tablets vs. 27% in 2012. With IDC estimating Q1 shipments rose 142% Y/Y to 49.2M, further hikes don't seem far-fetched. Meanwhile, following a 13.9% Y/Y drop in Q1, IDC now expects PC shipments to fall 7.8% Y/Y in 2013 to 321.9M, and predicts tablet sales will outpace PC sales by 2015. Revenue crossover could take longer, given IDC forecasts a 2013 tablet ASP of $381, and a PC ASP of $635. AAPL and GOOG must be pleased, MSFT, INTC, AMD, DELL, and HPQ less so.  [View news story]

    the company doesn't seem like it was meant for the public just like how their goods are so expensive. They can not succeed with small portion of the population that can actually afford their goods

  • Netflix (NFLX -1.5%) could pass all cable networks and perhaps even a major network this summer in terms of hours watched per month as the streaming service launches Arrested Development just as the traditional network season winds down. The feat is fairly impressive when it's considered that the service is only 28M homes - compared to the +100M penetration of cable networks. Q1 scorecard of viewer hours/month (via BTIG): CBS 3.3B; ABC 2.6B; NBC 2.3B; Fox 1.9B; Disney Channel 1.3B; Netflix 1.2B.  [View news story]
    Really? NFLX stockwise is already had its run up. TIME TO SELL!
