What’s Your Excuse for Not Owning $COHR?

They make lasers for the pistol hot OLED market, which is now enjoying the comforts of having Apple as a brand new customer. This new demand is causing major disruptions in the demand/supply dichotomy, prompting massive investment in the field, building new factories in an effort to ramp up supply.

You can see it in the shares of OLED and UCTT. But COHR is rarely discussed — because of the esoteric nature of their business.

Pray tell, what is your excuse for not including COHR in your portfolio of long term holdings?

      If Movie theaters came out with their own passes, they would no longer be profitable. Keep in mind that hmny pays movie theaters for each ticket purchased through their subscription program, even if they are only charging the customer $10. Once they have a large enough user base, they build bargaining power with the theaters, and they will also raise their $10 promotional subscription fee. Granted they are burning through cash at the moment, but things could turn around very quickly.

        You can argue the validity of their business model until we’re all blue in the dick, but it really doesn’t matter.

        Unless you have a cost basis in the $2’s trading that name is basically gambling. There’s no technical/fundamental edge to be had.

    I own it, along with the rest of those companies you posted about a few weeks ago that had the high revenues etc etc. Call it the “Good Shit” portfolio.

    Fly, the tax man cometh. Your numbers (“Earnings”:$100.6M, $71.1M,etc) are Operating Income, not Net Income.

    That being said, COHR is a MUCH better investment than HMNY. HMNY has already declined 60% from its peak, so cashing out that lotto ticket is a much better idea than your thoughts from 4 days ago (“will never sell it”).

      I know, EBIT is a much better measure of a companies cash flow than net income, which is often obscured by charges.

    HMNY isn’t an investment, but a lotto ticket.
