Hang up on Motorola



January 28, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: MSI

Motorola (MOT) continues to disappoint. Now they are finally selling their cell phone business. Time for you to get out of Dodge too.

My points:
Price decrease in 8 of the last 20 trading sessions Price loss of 18.07% in a month Barchart has 13 of 13 technical indicators signaling see Analysts predict 5 year compounded EPS loss of 4.55%

Sell of short immediately

  Thanks Jim for beating up on Motorola. It gives me the chance to buy more......  I just love It when people beat up on stocks that I would love to purchase at lower prices.  + 1 REC     TS  Pitch by  topsecret09 4/30/09 9:28 PM Having worked for motorola,I know that they are capable of a home run. I am betting the new Android phones will be a game changer. And even If they do not live up to expectations,this company will survive and prosper. I do not see a lot of downside from here,and insiders have been picking up shares....

Motorola scores multiple awards at CES   Samsung may lead the pack with the number of awards won at this year’s CES, but Motorola (NYSE: MOT)’s products also scored few points.

Among all MOTO products, it’s the ROKR E8 phone which shined the most, receiving four awards – including the prestigious CNET People’s Voice Award. Other Moto’s awarded products include, MOTOROKR S9 and Motorola T815 which took top honors in the 2008 CES Best of Innovations Design and Engineering Award and Bluetooth SIG Award, respectively. Additional eight Motorola’s products were also awarded, and in total the American handset maker took 14 awards… Full release follows after the jump.
