Earning update: Mindray, GSIT

Reading Time: 2 minutes GSI Techonology As I talked in my previous post (a while ago), this is the little semi-conductor (very fast SRAM) stock (Nasdaq: GSIT) I bought a year ago at its IPO. Since its IPO it reported two disappointing quarters at first, more recently it reported two decent quarters (Fiscal Q4, Fiscal Q3). But I sold… Continue reading Earning update: Mindray, GSIT

Proud to be a Berkshire Shareholder

Reading Time: 2 minutes My wife used to joked with me: you always tout some stocks when you buy, then after it crashed, you will say it’s a crap (XFML, Heelys, LFT, Crocs). I think I won’t say that for Mindray, and hopefully no hard feelings for BRK, either. Sold Mindray MR I sold my remaining Mindray (MR) shares… Continue reading Proud to be a Berkshire Shareholder

Swap Mindray for Syngenta

Reading Time: 2 minutes I sold some Mindray stocks (MR) last Friday and today, and I bought some Syngenta (SYT), the European agriculture company. I think it is a more reasonably valued stock (compared to my across street neighbour Monsanto), in this ag (soft commodity) boom. The thing I want to make sure is it does not bust very… Continue reading Swap Mindray for Syngenta

Mindray buys into US market

Reading Time: 2 minutes Mindray (NYSE:MR) continued its US market expansion today, as it agreed to buy the Patient Monitoring business of DataScope (Nasdaq: DSCP) for $202 m (see this Reuters news). My gut feeling is this is a fair deal. Mindray paid about 1.25 times sales revenue for the unit. According to Reuters: “The (DataScope) unit had total… Continue reading Mindray buys into US market

RIM, Mindray

Reading Time: < 1 minute Crocs broke my heart; RIM made my day. While CROX continued his downward spiral, today Research in Motion (RIM, Nasdaq: RIMM) is up 8% on the news it will beat its forecasted subscriber growth. Now I regret I did the swing last week, in which I cashed in some gain, and reduced the number of… Continue reading RIM, Mindray

I am not a believer

Reading Time: < 1 minute of this market. First is this Amazon bouncing back thing. Then is the whole market went up big, on the last day of the month. My initial sense is another windows dressing like it did on Dec 31. Note for mutual fund, hedge fund,…they all have monthly performance to meet. So take this last opportunity… Continue reading I am not a believer

Lessons from Longtop

Reading Time: < 1 minute Well, Longtop did not turn out to be long top, it was a short top if you will. I sold most of the shares today (still 50 shares pending in Scottrade). The problem with Longtop (LFT) is not fundamental, it’s rather valuation. In current market, I think an unproven Chinese financial software (IT service) company… Continue reading Lessons from Longtop

Peace of mind

Reading Time: 2 minutes My wife joked with me that I ONLY got talktive and excited when talking about the stocks. I know that is largely true, and that was the case with yesterday evening’s gathering with my old friends. The good thing is unlike my wife, my friends are also interested in stocks. For me, it is always… Continue reading Peace of mind

Mindray recruiting new grads in Canada Germany

Reading Time: < 1 minute Here is the link (see the left scrolling screen, in Chinese): Many years ago, when I was a graduate student, I attended those information sessions in school (and ate many free pizzas). At that time all the companies are US companies, such as Emerson, GE, and Microsoft (Nasdaq:MSFT) etc. Now a Chinese company are coming… Continue reading Mindray recruiting new grads in Canada Germany

Mindray investor day

Reading Time: 2 minutes No I did not fly to Shenzhen, although I would love to be there. From the news, and the presentation, the developments are very encouraging. Too bad my account ran out of money yesterday, otherwise I was going to add my MR positions amid the across board sale of Chinese stocks. Some highlights (I think)… Continue reading Mindray investor day
