Ultimate Short List - Page 4

yes SHLD should be added, but not now. As long as the technicals remain bullish imo

 

You could argue that CRM, P, CROX, LULU, ZAGG, AOL,  and a whole slew of other crap tech stocks should be added as they will eventually fall. But eventually could takes days, weeks, months or years... I'm looking for sooner rather than later.

i am disappointed they shot up after earnings, a move that still has me confused.  i wanted to short them after earnings and watched as it took off

im still waiting for AZO and CMG..  parts and burritos i didnt know were so strong.

SHLD shot up due to what the board was doing, and other restructuring aspects within the company. jmo. it really did surpass expectations.

AZO is another POS that defies all logic... they're an accounting scandal waiting to happen.. been waiting to short them for a good year now

here's a few names I'm bearish on:

 

LNKD (closed at 90.73) - lockout period for 55 million shares ends on 2/28, though 48 million are held by institutions that will most likely hold their shares for longer term. Which leaves 7 million.

 

GMCR (closed at 66.18) - technically looks like its breaking down, there's also a gap that needs to be filled..

 

AM (closed at 14.90)- greeting cards are so 1990's.. technically looks weak as well

I like GMCR.  It ran up nicely.

I have an eye on Pandora and TiVo longer term. Both companies are built around technology that is being exploited and slowly becoming redundant. People listen to Pandora on their iPhones and will likely transition over to iRadio. On the other hand, who needs to record shows in the streaming world of 2013.

Both companies were heavyweights previously but they have more competition and will lose market share consistently in the upcoming months/years imo.

TiVO and Pandora have both been crushing it lol.

Earnings Season is underway. Any new short picks people?

I am looking at:
CROX
JCP (duh)

Waiting patiently for AT&T stock to turn bearish so that I can hop onto a long term short.

Everyone knows they have a questionable track record regarding their overall customer care and reception/quality of service. The only thing they had over other providers was phone selection. Nowadays there are exclusive titles, but they aren't the big breadwinners (Samsung & Apple), and with T-Mobile disrupting the industry with contract-free plans, I would bet that people without grandfathered plans will eventually start to jump ship. AT&T is also overexposed to T-Mobile's tactics because they are on the same frequency so some phones can work on either carrier. They are basically copying every move that TMUS does at the moment I feel like.

So basically:
  • Decreased profits for AT&T as they lower prices to compete with the non-subsidized phone model
  • Q3 2013 showed 80% of phones sold by AT&T were iPhones. Now that Tmobile can support iPhones (and subsequently multiple related MNVOs as well) I don't see any diehard AT&T fans willing to pay the same rates
  • Exclusive titles were big for AT&T (iPhone and Moto Razr back in the day) but that does not appear to be the case any longer
  • MNVOs are starting to gain traction

@Bermudan Option 

 

The only reason I have AT&T for my cell phone is: the minutes carry over

 

That's the ONLY reason...coverage sucks, price sucks

When our contract expires, we will abandon ship.

T-Mobile is willing to buy you out of your contract (pay your early termination fees) currently so that might be an option for you. I use them @ $30/mo and I am pretty content with my service.


Additionally, another industry that I think is going to be struggling in the future is the taxi industry. The new car sharing companies are going to take away from the bottom line in a major way as the younger generations gravitate towards mobile car-sharing world.

WTW has $2.4 Billion in debt.

I see earnings scheduled for July 31 (Wed after hours). Should be an interesting one to watch.
