President Obama visiting Applied Materials

Applied Materials makes the chips that high tech industry needs. Those suppliers seem much cheaper than the customer oriented high tech companies.
It would be interesting to understand why.
For now I’ll enjoy:

Trailing P/E 16.47
Forward P/E 1 11.79 (more…)

Just bought Lam Research Corporation LRCX, which sells pickaxes during during to Silicon gold rush November 29, 2017

I like this high growth stock that sells the machinery used to build high tech stuff. It is like the iconic “sell pickaxes during a gold rush”.
Levy selling pickaxes and shovels in a gold rush

A very reasonably priced company:

Trailing P/E 17.32
Forward P/E 1 12.54

With a spectacular growth rate:

Quarterly Revenue Growth (yoy) 51.80%


This time I bought on the news: Micron Technology, Inc. (MU) September 27, 2017

What attracted me was not really the news.
It is just that I loved a few numbers:
Esplosive growth: Quarterly Revenue Growth (yoy) 92.10
Very reasonable price:
Trailing P/E 16.22

Are solid state disks the future?

What about SanDisk that produces those?


I started from a great stock I own: STX. Seagate is an amazing company.

  • Its revenue was up 56.80% year on year.
  • Its earnings growth was stellar 751.30%.
  • It is dirt cheap: they sell for price five times its earnings (P/E=4.77).
  • Expectations for next year are better still P/E= 4.74.
  • Dividend yields 4.1%, up 30% from previous year.

3 reasons not to use Stop Loss – answer to Jon Trausti’s question about Free Stock Strategy May 28, 2012

Posted by deminvest in investment, nasdaq, stocks.

Dear Jon, thanks for your very good question about Free Stock Strategy :

Dont you ever use “Sell Stop” for stocks you buy? … for example, many suggest you always use 5% “sell stop”.. or 10% .. and just buy some other stocks, if the ones you bought are not going in the direction (up) you hoped/wanted ?

It is for 3 reasons

Reason 1)

The only way to make money on the stock market is to buy low and sell high.

Most stocks move together up in good times and down in bad times. Automatic stop loss results in forcing to sell a bunch of stocks, even good ones, as the market sinks.

With my strategy, I have to buy every month, even when markets point down. In bad times I can hardly sell any stock because they can’t hit “up 40% target” in bad times.

As soon as market recovers most stocks that I buy in bad times hit my 40% up target and I make money.

What I accomplish that way is buying low and selling high. The best think is that I do it automatically, without having to understand or forecast what is going on in the Economy.

S&P 500 and NASDAQ 2002 to 2012

If we look at the last 10 years, we can see that if I had bought every month and if I had a stop, I’d have  sold with a big losses every stock the next month in 2002, 2007 and 2008. (more…)

I did it:

Bought 3 GOOG @ $528.6735 $-1,590.5205 Executed

I don’t care if Google was kicked out of China. Google still is a fast growing company, which is doing great now and which will do terrific if companies get back on advertising spending as the economy picks up.

Google is growing Revenue up 23% year on year, Earnings up 37%, has 26B cash, about 15% of its market cap.


What happened to Garmin stock (GRMN) and what can I learn from that February 10, 2010

Some time ago Garming was a powerful fast growing company. On August 17 2006 I decided not to buy Garmin (GRMN) shares because I felt GPS service would become a commodity offered in any smartphone.

Now I wonder: Was i right?


Here it is. The iPad sucks. I had guessed right. January 27, 2010

The iPad is an iPod on illegal steroids that lost its main functionality

I had guessed right the iPad sucks. It is just an overgrown iPhone that we can’t hold in our pockets or purses.

My guesses were right.


6 Reasons why Apple ITablet sucks. Or should I say IPad sucks? January 26, 2010

Posted by deminvest in AAPL, Apple, growth stock, investment, nasdaq, Nasdaq stock.
Tags: , , , , , ,


imagine holding the ITablet in one hand while typing on the Subay

1) We can’t use Apple iPad to read books because it doesn’t have E Ink electronic paper display like Amazon’s Kindle . Apple iPad will emit light and tire our eyes. We can only read our last book on the IBook.

2) We can’t use Apple iPad to make phonecalls: too big to carry around

3) We can’t use it in the office: We type better on our keyboad. We also need a large screen to do 15  tasks at the same time.

4) We can’t use it at home: we like to type from the sofa at home. With our laptop we lay the keyboard on our legs, the screen will be in front of our eyes so we can use both hands to type or move around the pointer. Try to do that with a tool that doesn’t have a keyboard. Our spouses aren’t going to be willing to hold the IBook in front of our sofa, so we can use both hands to type.

5) We can’t use in the car. We have to drive

6) We can’t use it in the bus. Too unstable: the iTablet is meant to  be held in one hand while the other hand types and works. At first stop or sharp curve it will slip out of our hand. I won’t be usable in a crowded subway where anybody can easily grab and run out with our $1000 toy.
