Memo to Katherine Egbert: Time to Call it Quits?

Posted in Deception, Finance, Red Hat at 7:12 pm by Dr. Roy Schestowitz

In this continuing saga (see context) where we find every analyst getting his/her predictions wrong, consider the latest mistake from Katherine Egbert (she always gets it wrong on Red Hat). Rarely does she admit the mistake and sometimes excuses are used. Enough is enough. Here is the latest news:

Red Hat Shares Jump 10 Percent

Shares of Red Hat Inc. jumped 10 percent Friday, one day after the open source software distributor announced a rise in third-quarter earnings and the appointment of a new chief executive.

You can find Egbert’s excuse here. They always try to deny or sidestep away from their predictions. This time was no exception.

Why are people still listening to analysts, who are typically funded by corporations? We’re not done criticising what appear to have devolved into a movement of self-appointed professionals, who are sometimes just shills in suits.

Remember Novell’s fan analyst, Abhey Lamba? Where is he hiding now amid Novell's financial problem and implosion?

  1. Microsoft Partner Explains How Microsoft Screws Partners (and Free/Open Source Projects)

    "Nothing Has Truly Changed Since Netscape and Antitrust," as we put it four days ago; the 'new' Microsoft is the exact same company with the exact same strategies, which include destruction by assimilation



  2. Why Does Microsoft Even Want to Associate With Satanic Ritual Cults and Marina Abramović?

    Microsoft's 'news' sites fail to heed the warning or the toxicity (bad publicity) associated with Marina Abramović and they promote Microsoft's proprietary software using not only militarism (goggles for the Army) but borderline cannibalism

  5. Don't Let the Collapse of News Companies Be the Collapse of Information (or Ascent of Misinformation)

    We're growingly concerned that the collapse of the mainstream media will entail reliance not on reliable and independent alternatives but corporate marketing agencies, charlatans and frauds, sometimes even deliberate falsehoods and state-manufactured bogus stories



  6. When Police Gets in the Way of Investigations, Having Used Microsoft Products to Investigate Microsoft Issues

    In this long article we outline barriers we’ve come across in pursuit of information from the police (the pedophilia arrest at the mansion of Bill Gates — followed by conviction and arrest — has thousands of pages about it, but since September the police has shared not even one!)

  13. MIT and Microsoft Have Done Nothing to Actually Tackle Pedophilia and Ephebophilia

    MIT never actually resolved the issue that caused Joi Ito, Richard Stallman and others to be ejected; Microsoft meanwhile continues to profit from life-changing abuse (while seeding puff pieces in friendly media, just to pretend otherwise)



  14. Opinion: If You Advocate Population Control and You Are Yourself Doubling in One Single Generation, Then You Might be Hypocritical

    People with 3-5 children (each) tell us that the world has an overpopulation problem; while the growth of the population certainly poses a risk, these people lack the moral authority to lecture us about that (unless they adopt a eugenicist worldview, wherein only particular people are permitted to reproduce)

  17. When the Monopolists and the Patent Litigation Industry Hijack the News They Control the Narrative

    Money buys perception and litigation firms have certainly 'bought' the media coverage, which fails to convey the issue at stake and instead paints a rational court decision as tragedy for "innovation" (by "innovation" they mean monopolies on nature and on life)

    Why nonfree (or proprietary) software generally fails to catch up with Free/libre software — at least on technical grounds — and then makes up for it with marketing and FUD offensives (discrediting perfectly-functioning things, based on their perceived cost)

    Any attempts to properly assess and explain what happens in Europe's patent landscape are being drowned out by EPO-bribed and law firms-connected media; to make matters worse, the EPO's bribes have expanded to academia, so even scholarly work in this domain is corrupted by money of special interest groups

  28. Distractions From Microsoft's Gigantic Tax Evasion and Contribution to Denial of Climate Science

    Microsoft (connected to oil companies) wants us to think of it as a "green" company; not only does it contribute to climate denial but it also evades tax, which is a serious crime that costs tens of billions of dollars (the public pays this money instead)

    The debate is now settled; those arguing in favour of listing Startpage as privacy-respecting are in fact secretly 'compensated' by Startpage (in other words, they're Startpage 'shills')
