buy = sell

outperform = sell

hold = sell it ASAP

overweight = dump this turd like a fatso on a toilet

market perform = sell this and the market index ETF


sell = BUY on dips just like the prop traders


only trust analysts who have their retirement savings on the line.

I give up, is it Michael Pachter from Wedbush with a $17 price target on July 19th?

He was only off by 90% in a four day market window.

Or is it Daniel Ernst from Hudson Square with a "buy" recommendation and a price target of $14?

He's only 85% off, and after all it isn't his money.

I'd bet CALPERS went all-in last Friday.

I am thrilled that Michael Pachter is getting his due credit. This guy is an arrogant douche, who understands exactly nothing about game development and/or the related industry.

Y'all might recall that Pachter is the stupid cunt who dissed Mark Zuckerberg for refusing to wear a suit to the Facebook dog & pony show (the IPO promotional tour).

I have no view on Zuckerberg (or Facebook), but it's good that he doesn't think he should be taken seriously despite refusing to don $3k of bespoke suitings.


As I said at the time (see http://bit.ly/OFYeLd ):

So Michael Pachter showed the world he likes playing Dress-Ups like a fucking 5 year old girl. 

How come we're not past the idiotic idea that someone gains credibility by putting on a fucking $3000 suit?

Answer: by putting on a suit, retard Epsilon ticket-clippers like Pachter obtain credibility that they do not deserve. Simpletons are impressed by the idea that he appears to be able to afford a 'decent' suit - even if he's up to his balls in debt.

Obsession with what you wear is a hallmark of a shallow Valley-Girl/Kardashian mentality, that should be left where it belongs on the women's style pages along with tooth whiteners, hair dye, botox, face-paint and stripper heels.

I'm not particularly a fan of Zuckerbrg - I dunno enough about the guy. But on this issue, he's 100% right: the Street is FULL of people with nice suits who are full of shit. I'm certain that Stanford and Madoff looked a million bucks.

As my PhD supervisor ("Dicko") once said when he got an impromptu visit from the head of risk management at a major bank as he ("Dicko") was preparing for cricket practice... "Don't worry, Bob. I might be in sports kit, but I'm still as smart as I am when I wear one of those stupid monkey suits you guys insist on wearing."

("Dicko" did his PhD at Harvard, and was Leontief's grad student the year the big L won the Nobel Prize [1973]... he [Dicko] subsequently taught at Harvard, and is now the guy behind the US ITC's "USAGE" model. Doubtless he wore a suit when he testified in front of Congress on the economic consequences of immigration policy)

Fuck Pachter - it does not surprise me in the least that such a shallow fucktard makes such a lamentable call.
