babywolf: Hi Bracke Very pleased for you re BP! My current position: 6,000 STX short at 25.81. Was hopeful that Intel and IBM's disappointing figures last night might aid my shorts. I say "was" as the pre-market STX price doesnt appear to be affected.

I could deleverage right now - and nearly did that yesterday - but right now, glad I didnt. My average buy price: $29.23. WOuld you wait for the share price to come down lower or, I could sell those in profit and offset it against the losses. Looking at the different tranches to see what would best work. I could take 4500 off the table but it would leave me with 4500 at a ghastly average of $24.50. There has been a pattern of it opening and going lower very quickly and then recovering throughout the day but then to sink lower at the end. By pattern, I mean in the last week or so. About to plough through the data re BARC on analysts' opinion of new CEO and the possible SFO prosecution. Are you in any trades right now Bracke?
babywolf: An excerpt from an article on STX re comments made in the conference call following the results: "The most encouraging news could be found in the company's guidance on its share buyback and dividend policy. Seagate's CEO Steve Luczo stated the following: We are on plan to reduce our share count to 350 million ordinary shares outstanding by calendar year-end 2012. Assuming market and macroeconomic conditions and the company's performance and valuation metrics are similar to what they are today, we plan to reduce our share count to 250 million ordinary shares by calendar year-end 2014. Given the assumptions stated above, we expect that we will continue to increase our dividend payments in a meaningful manner while continuing our redemption plan over the course of the next several years. The current number of shares outstanding stands at 411 million as of June 2012 according to the company's recently released earnings. With expectations to reduce the share count to 350 million over the next 5 months, this immediate buyback would suggest that the company is willing to spend $1.83 billion at current market prices! Were the market capitalization of the company to stay at roughly $12.3 billion (as of July 31, 2012), the reduced share count would present a new share price of approximately $35 by the year's end. Factor in the increased dividend guidance, and it appears that Seagate may be in for a near-term bump up in value." Bracke - on the face of it, that means an average of 12m share repurchased per month to the end of this year - the same number ie 12m is the daily average. I wondered what your thoughts are on the share price - as you know, I would like to offload the shorts at minimum loss and wanted to check with you what the best way of doing this is: a) hedging with something else b) adding STX shorts on dips c) both a and b d) something I have not thought of!
babywolf: WatteNe - apologies! As a holder of BARC, did you see the article I am referring to? Just in case you did not: The Barclays Libor rate-fixing scandal could provide further shocks to the market by exposing severe flaws in the way the beleaguered bank is capitalised, Threadneedle UK Monthly Income manager Jonathan Barber has warned. The Citywire A-rated manager said he had not been tempted to buy into Barclays following recent share price weakness and believes the scandal surrounding the selling of interest rate swaps and Libor rate-rigging will only serve to expose weaknesses in the way it is capitalised, which could provide the market with a further shock. As a result, he expects another round of fundraising could be necessary for the bank. Speaking to Wealth Manager following his 10th anniversary on the fund, Barber said: 'Barclays is massively undercapitalised. 'If you think their balance sheet is roughly £1.5 trillion, which is the same size as UK GDP, and they have got a tangible common equity value trading at 40 pence in the £1 of about £50 billion to £60 billion in assets, so if you write off 2.5% of your assets you have got no equity left. 'And they are not the most conservative people in the world when it comes to marking to market versus marking to model. This is increasingly becoming evident. I think they need more equity than they can raise. That is one of the things which could go wrong... Barclays could be in a worse position than people think.'
babywolf: this is where my understanding of it all becomes underwhelming - I know now that for each seller there's a buyer and vice versa. I didnt know that until recently and thought an imbalance created a drop or rise - versus when a share price heads north or south, it just means cheaper=south and dearer=north... I think
babywolf: Just out: Morgan Stanley have revised EPS estimates on STX and Western Digital (the only other major hard disc drive manufacturer). No mention of downgrade on target share price but EPS being revised downwards (not massively though) isnt good. Just seen your post Bracke - thank you - 3,000 short at 21.72. Current loss -$4920. If the odds are strong that it will head down to $22 am tempted to add another 4000 to it now - another 4000 (my long is 7000). Would then make my average break even $22.65
babywolf: Thanks Bracke - that is a great link. Now saved to my favourites. Re STX and my wanting to closing my 3000 short - I now know a little about the technical indicators but all bets are off when Bernanke speaks - I am assuming that it's best to use the indicators as exactly that - indicators - and that this all goes out the window on macro-data BUT it's temporary - would it be correct to say that the technicals reassert? Maybe mine is a stupid question because following the broadsides, the share price movements are then incorporated into the technical data...
babywolf: Hi again Bracke - sitting here watching the share price - it dipped quite a bit at the open which surprised me (silly me to be surprised at what a share price does!) but given the positive-spin posts on David Einhorn's increased stake, I WAS surprised. I sold 1000 of my 4000 short before the open and now sitting on 3000 that is building up a steady loss. Watching for the 23.60 mark which it may or may not make today. For the millionth time, bringing my brain back to the here and now - not what I coulda/shoulda/woulda done in not taking a huge position originally. I found a US website that has a STX message board with a varying degree of useful, intelligent data and debate - and a good dose of vitriol - not comfortable asking questions as the experienced traders on there don't have the patience with those like myself (thank you again for yours) Would like to implement your suggestion of hedging something else but a) my margin means that I could not risk getting the hedge going the wrong way and b) my ignorance and inexperience would have me not being confident in my choice. My current position means that my hedging the same share protects erosion of the margin - but as I posted earlier, a catch 22 just now. Hope you had a good day.
babywolf: Today's Overall Ratings: Up: 15 | Down: 13 | New: 26 Needham & Company maintains a 'Strong Buy' on Seagate Technology (NASDAQ: STX) price target lowered from $52 to $42. Analyst, Richard Kugele, said, "While a softer TAM for June (and potentially the balance of 2012) is frustrating, we believe that the stocks of both STX and WDC have more than accounted for this reduction in demand (with more than $5B in lost market cap just since May 16th vs. $700M in less sales). Once again trading meaningfully below 2x NTM EV/EBITDA, we would be buyers on this weakness and ahead of the likely upbeat analyst days in September." Needham lowers FY12 EPS estimate from $7.07 to $6.56 and FY13 from $10.63 to $8.91. So still a buy but target now $10 lower "with more than $5B in lost market cap just since May 16th vs. $700M in less sales". Hope that $5b doesnt go up much more.
