Dying companies with bleak future?

SAP Lombard

Lets stock up. Which companies do you think are on a decline and will probably not revive, pretty much like last 7-10 yrs that Yahoo saw before its demise.
I will start with Oracle, Cisco, Intel, SAP?

Feel free to add to the list and comment.

      I doubt it. Worst case they’ll spin off the car biz and sell a large stake off to a big auto manufacturer.

      Short now or short later? Can’t decide. Curious if irrational exuberance will persist for awhile.

      Why the need to dig up a 6 week old post? Gotta defend your honor or you on the clock?

      And the news broke yesterday/today that Apple is going to start using its own chips by 2020.

      Very sad indeed. It is true. As of last week, engg. talent is gone, product managers have left (good riddance), and there's a Trump-style spin of reality within the company. Of course, not a safe place to work, rampant abuse that goes undetected by impotent HR and C-level folks.

    IBM. Agism scandal + massive layoff on their "innovation" department. They been walking dead for years though.

      ^ agreed. If you delegate away all the responsibility of innovation to a department, innovation is not embedded in your company culture

      Action cams are passe. Only used my gopro once on a vacation. GoPro's drone efforts were a big flop. Chinese OEM would just be buying GoPro for the brand name, then laying off most everybody in the US, just keeping a skeleton crew for sales and some sort of hedge against any Trump trade war collateral damage. Chinese HW OEM will only cost cut since that is their competitive advantage.

      Yes, fully agreed. OP's question and my answer is about stock price. Not about job or employees or product or company strategy.

      Doubt a Chinese OEM would pay such a premium for a dying brand. But you never know. Maybe Nick can charm the panties off some corrupt ChiCom Tuhao. Woodman need to hit up some old Chinese aunties in charge of some ChiCom PE firm.

      Agreed on Airbnb, once people started using it as a way to make money off of spare property, a lot of the heat and soul of it died. Now you might as well just do a hotel, which have gotten cooler in many instances.

      👆My last Airbnb experience was clearly a property bought solely for that. No soul. Just IKEA cheap.

      Have stayed in boutique hotels since.
