IB Net Payout Yields Model
This view my Richard Berner of Morgan Stanley goes a long way to back up the statements of CSCO CEO John Chambers on their earnings call last night. Though everybody chose to hark on the comments about slowdowns in June and concerned customers, he actually stated that July picked up big time. In fact, CSCO plans to hire another 3K people this year bringing the yearly increase to nearly 10%. Now is that suggestive of a company concerned about a meaningful slowdown or somebody just providing a conservative outlook? You be the judge, but the latter is much more likely. And really were you surprised that CSCO talked about a temporary slowdown in June? Seriously people!

Aurora Cannabis was left out of the major deal making in 2018. The cannabis company updated FQ2 guidance to revenues of $50 to $55 million with a continued focus on pure production growth. The stock is down as the market is becoming less impressed with commodity farming operations due to the prime Oregon example. The stock is below key resistance at $5.40 as medical cannabis patient totals failed to impress.

Just about all of the other major Canadian cannabis players got large investments or signed up powerful partnerships, but the related stocks didn't generally maintain rallies following the deals.

Update - Apr. 4, 2023 The short attack is here with Kerrisdale Capital attacking the accounting of C3.ai right after the stock soars into the quarter end. The stock already wasn't as appealing back above $30. The accounting questions appear a stretch, but the company has regularly replaced the CFO in the last 4 years. C3.ai ( NYSE: AI ) fell 12% after Kerrisdale Capital, which released a short report on the company last month, wrote a letter to the company's auditor outlining its concerns. Kerrisdale, run by Sahm Adrangi, sent a letter to Deloitte & Touche, highlighting its concerns with alleged accounting issues at C3.Ai . Update - Apr. 2, 2023 C3.ai had a huge rally to end March likely due to fund managers piling into the stock to report a position at quarter end. The move appears silly but the stock is officially in breakout mode above $30 here. Even SoundHound Ai (SOUN) rallied 40% on Friday.

Update - Mar. 27, 2023 Ouster missed a great opportunity to promote the combined business of Velodyne Lidar and Ouster and the company decided to pass. The stock trades below $1 for this reason and management has to own this incompetence. -Q4 GAAP EPS of -$0.23 misses by $0.03. -Revenue of $10.94M (-7.7% Y/Y) misses by $4.9M. -Secured company record $70 million in bookings in 2022 - Q1'23 revenue guidance of $15 to $17 million, excludes Velodyne revenues through merger close on Feb. 10. The Q4 revenue total was closer to $25 million and the Q1'23 pro-forma revenue total was probably closer to $21 million. Update - Mar. 15, 2023 Pretty nice deal here with 100 Lidar sensors shipped at the end of '22. Ouster shouldn't be trading back below $1. -Fieldin has already deployed dozens of kits at its customers’ farms and plans to deploy over 100 autonomy retrofit kits on tractors, each equipped with an Ouster OS1, to major customers across the United States in 2023.
