Cramer's hedge fund buddies arecon the phone to him now advising how to keep his idiot listeners in "Texan."
Just a longer period of transitory....unless of course we experience more weather or what not...then an even longer period of transitory.
Life is transitory.
Stick with Cramer and stick with Texan.
Oh this next two months is gonna be fun ;-) There will be so many cliff drop graphs posted on your site Tyler... You might as well just leave the deer in the headlights photo permanently stickied to the top ;-)
No one could have seen this coming, I'm tellin' ya !
I have a feeling 4th of July weekend is going to be blamed somehow.
we are in a heat wave now, and hurricane season coming up, so the excuses are already built in
With respect to TXN, the Japan excuse is no bullshit. Their Japanese fab took a major hit in the earthquake (damaged facility and lost inventory). I believe this fab was around 15% of their analog production (most important segment) and 50% of DLP. Some production shifted to other fabs, with Japan expected to be back online in September at the earliest. Add to that the troubles at their Japanese customers and it's not surprising they're still feeling the pain three months later...a time frame I would argue has yet to cross from transitory to permanent.
The fab you mention is about halfway to Fukushima from Tokyo (maybe a little less). It would need reliable electric power to be up and running, and September (when A/C use is down) would have to be the earliest.
The fab also needs clean, non-radioactive water, and employees.
I hear you. The September estimate is/was the company's best case scenario, not mine. I saw this about two months ago, so they may have revised it since then, and back then that estimate was predicated on no additional damage from aftershocks.
Anyway, my main point was that the "Japan card" will be overplayed by many companies / government officials, but in TI's case it's legitimate.
Peak Binary gadget sh!t.
The Nanosecond Money crew has, in record time, discovered the good news contained within the bad news. To summarize, "It's Texan specific." So the stock specific bad news bears continue to stack up like cord wood, but the market itself is a screaming buy.
There you go. No matter what the news, the news is always good at the BlowHorn [CNBC]. This has been a public service announcement of hope from the NBC marionettes and the criminal syndicate Wall Street bankers that hold their strings.
Bungie jumping "dip buyers" attracted to lowered guidance...
