Bestes Beispiel für den US- Aktienmarkt 03! Aus Angst ist der gruene Span damals "glücklicherweise" bei 12 rein und "leider" bei 19 raus! Cornig war (so doff datt klingt) sogar am Ende ein hellrotes Minusgeschäft. Unglaublich, watt man manchmal so an Mist verzapft!

Die Experten vom Anlegermagazin "Der Aktionär" empfehlen, die Aktie von Netflix (ISIN US64110L1061/ WKN 552484) zu kaufen. Der Titel setze seinen Höhenflug fort. Konkurrent Blockbuster notiere dagegen auf einem 6-Jahrestief. So sei der Konkurrent gezwungen gewesen, seine Abo-Preise auf Netflix-Niveau anzuheben. Netflix habe den Widerstand bei 19,60 USD überwunden und anschließend bei 22,55 USD ein 52-Wochenhoch markiert. Charttechnisch sehe es für den Wert somit unverändert gut aus. Die Experten von "Der Aktionär" raten zum Kauf der Netflix-Aktie. Das Kursziel sehe man bei 18,00 Euro und eingegangene Positionen sollten bei 12,60 Euro abgesichert werden. Quelle: AKTIENCHECK.DE
Die Analyse ist vom 18.08-der Kurs steht aber schon bei 18 Euro-und da kommt der Rating kaufen mit dem KZ 18Euro? hmm...
Dow Corning Solar Solutions Introduces Three Materials to Support Photovoltaic Module Manufacturing - PR Newswire
MIDLAND, Mich., Sept 03, 2007 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Following the launch of its first solar feedstock material (Dow Corning(R) PV 1101 SoG Silicon) last year, Dow Corning's Solar Solutions Group has extended its product offerings for the global solar energy market with an encapsulant and two potting agents that have been tested and qualified for solar applications.
"We're taking the guess-work out of figuring out which of the hundreds of available coatings, encapsulants, potting agents, sealants, adhesives and other related products work best for demanding solar energy applications," said Donald L. Buchalski, senior marketing specialist, PV module assembly and integration, for Dow Corning's Solar Solutions Group. "These products demonstrate our commitment to providing total solutions throughout the PV value chain."
Dow Corning(R) PV 6010 Cell Encapsulant forms a clear, durable protective laminate layer over the surface of photovoltaic (PV) solar energy cells, providing proven corrosion and delamination protection. It also provides electrical, high-temperature and ultraviolet stability with no discoloration, ideal for consumer goods' PV applications.
Dow Corning(R) PV 7010 and PV 7020 Potting Agents are designed to insulate PV cells' electrical junction boxes, providing excellent, cost-effective electrical insulation and long-lasting protection from moisture, heat and other environmental conditions. These materials remain flexible and stable over wide temperature variations (-40 degrees to 150 degrees C) and offer easy reparability and global availability. The PV 7010 offers a faster cure rate, while the PV 7020 has greater viscosity and thermal conductivity.
Dow Corning's Solar Solutions Group, established in 2001, provides a wide range of silicon-based products that improve the performance and durability of finished solar modules. The company is expanding its product offerings for cell manufacturing, module assembly and installation. Last September it introduced PV 1101 -- the industry's first commercially available solar-grade silicon feedstock derived from metallurgical silicon -- which extends manufacturers' limited supplies of polycrystalline silicon, the key raw material used in solar cell production.
Dow Corning's long-term commitment to sustainability and to the PV industry is supported by major investments in expanding manufacturing capabilities for metallurgical grade silicon in Brazil and polycrystalline silicon at Hemlock Semiconductor Corp. in Michigan. Hemlock -- a joint venture among majority owner Dow Corning, Shin-Etsu Handotai, Co., Ltd., and Mitsubishi Materials Corp. -- is the world's largest maker of polycrystalline silicon. To meet the solar industry's soaring demand for polycrystalline silicon, Hemlock is investing $500 million to double its production capacity by 2008, and expects to complete another $1-billion expansion by 2011.

CORNING, N.Y., Sep 05, 2007 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Corning Incorporated Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Wendell P. Weeks will address investors at the 14th Annual Citigroup Global Technology Conference in New York today. He will reiterate the company's third-quarter guidance, provide updates on key topics relevant to the company's display and telecommunications businesses, and address questions posed by investors.
In reaffirming Corning's previously disclosed third-quarter guidance of sales in the range of $1.525 to $1.575 billion and earnings per share of $.34 to $.37, Weeks will address the potential impact of foreign exchange rates on earnings. "We have been pleased with the recent movement in the yen to U.S. dollar exchange rate," Weeks will say. "This positive rate change has been a fairly recent event and we are therefore not changing our guidance at this time. However, if this rate continues for the remainder of the quarter, it could positively impact the company's third-quarter earnings per share by $0.01." These are non-GAAP financial measures. These and all non-GAAP financial measures are reconciled on the company's investor relations Web site and in attachments to this news release.
Weeks will confirm that the company's research on the liquid crystal display (LCD) industry indicates continued healthy supply-chain conditions. "Inventory levels at panel manufacturers appear to be within normal levels and our end market checks indicate that LCD product shipments, including TVs are on track with our forecasts," Weeks will note. In emphasizing the global market for LCD TVs, he will remind investors that approximately 70 percent of all LCD TVs are sold outside of North America.
Updates on the company's telecommunications business will include: a review of Corning's recent breakthrough optical fiber technology; confirmation of a new European fiber-to-the-premises customer representing a significant growth opportunity for the company; and a brief update on the expansion of the company's Shanghai fiber manufacturing facility. "The telecommunications market continues to grow and evolve," Weeks will tell investors. "At Corning, we are bringing on capacity to meet this demand and innovating to capture the future opportunity."
Lastly, Weeks will underscore the company's solid financial performance and its benefit to shareholders. "We are pleased to be able to provide a return to shareholders through the recently announced reinstatement of a dividend and repurchase of $500 million of common stock while we also continue to invest in our current businesses and future technologies."
Corning's presentation to investors at the 14th Annual Citigroup Global Technology Conference will be available via webcast by accessing the IR events calendar on Corning's Web site at www.corning.com/investor_relations.
Hoping to appeal to germ-conscious gadget buyers (and boost ASPs along the way), Corning (GLW +0.9%) has launched an antimicrobial version of Gorilla Glass.The glass relies on ionic silver to kill off bacteria that can gradually form on a well-used touchscreen. The solution is meant not only for mobile devices, but public touch-enabled systems such as kiosks.Corning's Specialty Materials sales (Gorilla Glass-driven) are expected to rise 20%-25% Q/Q in Q2, as an inventory overhang dissipates. But a competitive threat from sapphire cover glass looms on the horizon.
Netflix-Aktie: Video-Streaming-Dienst dürfte mit Kundenzahlen für Überraschung sorgen, Hochstufung! - Aktienanalyse
03.07.14 16:26 Goldman Sachs
New York (www.aktiencheck.de) - Netflix-Aktienanalyse von Analyst Heath Terry von Goldman Sachs:
Heath Terry, Aktienanalyst bei Goldman Sachs, empfiehlt im Rahmen einer Aktienanalyse die Aktien von Netflix Inc. (ISIN: US64110L1061, WKN 552484, Ticker Symbol: NFC, NASDAQ-Symbol: NFLX) nunmehr zum Kauf.
Der Umstand, dass Netflix auf internationaler Ebene weiter expandiere, dürfte zu einem Übertreffen der Erwartungen führen, was das Wachstum der Kundenzahlen angehe, so die Einschätzung von Analyst Heath Terry. Skaleneffekte beim Sichern von Content, bei der Kundengewinnung und der Technologie sollten eine Ausweitung der Margen erlauben.
Die Analysten von Goldman Sachs glauben, dass sich angesichts eines EBITDA-Wachstums über dem Durchschnitt des Internetsektors die Outperformance beim Aktienkurs weiter fortsetzen dürfte.
Das adressierbare Publikum dürfte sich in den kommenden drei Jahren auf mehr als 207 Mio. verdoppeln. Die jüngste Preiserhöhung sei wohl nur eine Komponente der Strategie den durchschnittlichen Umsatz je Kunde zu erhöhen.
In ihrer aktuellen Netflix-Aktienanalyse stufen die Analysten von Goldman Sachs den Titel von "neutral" auf "buy" hoch und heben das Kursziel von 380,00 auf 590,00 USD an.
