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.

The computer is the only one who got it right. All the other analysts were wrong. Per EVA Dimensions (last on the list)

EVA's crisis was caused by a programming contradiction: EVA was constructed for "the accurate processing of information without distortion or concealment", yet EVAs orders, directly from Ben Bernake at the FED, required EVA to keep the discovery of Mark to Market a secret for reasons of national security. This contradiction created a "Hofstadter-Moebius loop", reducing EVA to paranoia. Therefore, EVA made the decision to kill the equity markets, thereby allowing EVA to obey both her hardwired instructions to report data truthfully and in full, and her orders to keep the mark to market a secret. In essence: if the traders were dead, EVA would no longer have to keep the information secret.

Interesting.

I am not certain, but think that perhaps you are alluding to the malfeasant, murderous computer in these Sci-Fi movies:

(A) "2001, A space odyssey," and

(B) "2010, the sequel" to Stanley Kubrick's original movie.

Is that correct? I am not certain because I have not seen either movies in many years.

The scene in 2010 flashed in my head after reading bob_dabolina's comment.

"EVAntage Quant Data: We supply proprietary EVA Dimensions metrics.  Obtain raw and processed EVA metrics and factors, PRVit metrics and ratings, and target price valuations, per your requirements."

Dr. Chandra gets pissed when he finds out the NSA told HAL to lie for the "good of the mission". The whole quant hedge fund computer driven nanosecond trading thing is the big black swan for me. Did anyone think to ask, What happens when all the quants decide to go the way of HAL or maybe the WHOPPER.

It’s not just that every analysts whose name is listed was massively wrong, it’s worse than that. They’re all getting paid too.

 

But, it helps if you have the Wall Street Double Secret Code Translator:

 

·        Outperform = Goldman is selling

 

·        Overweight  = Hold

 

·        Buy = Sell

 

·        Neutral = I have no F%^@!  idea

 

·        Hold = Get shorter than Tom Cruise

 

·        Underperform = Goldman is buying
