Margin Expansion

The bears will be eating kibbles and bits soon; because there is nothing left for them to cling onto. All of their theories of a shattered economy have been thoroughly debunked by Intel Corporation [[INTC]] . Case in point: RIDICULOUS margin expansion at Intel. Those chip gobblers did not beat estimates. No, it was a lot more than that. The nerds at Intel GODSMACKED estimates, particularly on the margin side, coming in at 51% (estimates were 46%). As you know, I’ve been bullish on chips, due to the huge spike in capacity utilization at the foundries. Now that the margins are exploding at INTC, I have to get bullish on the end user, specifically retail.

More on that later.

The way to play this is simple. Get long tech names that are sensitive to the end user, such as Corning Incorporated [[GLW]] , OmniVision Technologies, Inc. [[OVTI]] and Atmel Corporation [[ATML]] . Additionally, I am still very bullish on the 4g/smartphone space. Take a look at ADTRAN, Inc. [[ADTN]] , major supplier to the At&t network (think iPhone). ADTN just smashed numbers too.

So, in closing, how’s that head and shoulders formation looking now? You ball jugglers have no idea what you are talking about, 90% of the time. Hence, it is no surprise to see you default to oddball technical analysis theories, making believe you have a clue what you are doing.

Good day to you, Sir.

    bad news is now good news, American airlines announced shitty news and a shitty future, stock shoots up 4% on the news…..

    I’m in UAUA here, have been for a few weeks.

    all we need is some more bad news from the airlines and we’ll shoot up 10%…seems to be the flavor of the month. In fact if we can get British Airways to go bankrupt all the other airlines should shoot up 25%

    ADTN slipped a little there.

    Adtran sees FY09 HDSL business down single digits
    These comments were made on the company’s Q2 earnings conference call..

    Adtran’s conservative Q3 guidance due to uncertainties
    The company had a better Q2 than anticipated and there is still uncertainty in the IOC and HDSL market. Therefore the 3%-%5 revenue growth projection for Q3 was lower than the company’s usual 6%-7% growth rate. These comments were made on the company’s Q2 earnings conference call..

    July 15 (Bloomberg) — Huntsman Gay Global Capital LLC, the private-equity firm whose partners include retired football star Steve Young and former Citigroup Inc. executive Gary Crittenden, raised $1.1 billion for its first fund amid an industry slump.

    “As the credit crisis hit, it was clear that actually creating value was the only thing that was going to work, and investors recognized that,” Young, 47, said yesterday in a telephone interview. “With fresh capital, limited partners

    Some Technical Analysis note on JPM for earnings

    BULLISH CASE: There is an active bullish flag on the weekly chart, with upside potential to the $44 area. The breakout area for the flag was at the $35 level. A move back below $35 would invalidate the pattern. On better than expected news/outlook the stock could trade to the upper limit of the bullish price channel at $36.65. On a bullish breakout above the price channel the following resistance levels would become upside objectives: $36.88, $37.45, $38.07, $38.71, $39.32, $40.04, $40.67, $41.38, $42.07. BEARISH CASE: On worse than expected news/outlook the stock could trade to the lower limit of the price channel at $35.09. On a bearish breakdown below the price channel the following support levels would become downside objectives: $34.45, $33.92, $33.65, $33.10, $32.54, $32.05, $31.50, $30.58, $30.00, $29.54. NOTE: Small short-base at 1 day to cover, with 1.2% of the float short. Traders are positioned for positive news. Reactions on a surprise, especially a negative one given the short-skew, have a high probability of being extreme in duration and price. Very high gap risk.

    Scary.

    Side note.
    I have a possible offer to get back doing legal work and will know next week.
    Been daytrading for over ten years and am bored with it.
    Should I go back doing lawyer stuff?
    It would be interesting and without the usual administrative crap and would involve no overtime.
