If the market rallies to old high, MSFT upward potential is astronomical.
If analysts were REALLY looking ahead, they would see definite failures and earnings disappointments, and if the market corrects as we believe, its downward potential is atleast to 76
NCR shorting will increase in profit more and more.
We have long said that within one lunar cycle of the Jupiter/Uranus conjunction February 15, some of the high-technology price madness would slowly begin to disappear. We believe many Hi-Technology stocks including the giant Intel have hit their multi-year peak. Fundamentally, this will be a brutal year for many technology companies with declining, yes DECLINING profits. We will from time to time post some of our reasoning here, as well as archiving 1996 high-technology forecasts. In our opinion, it is way past time to TAKE PROFITS on many companies in this sector.
