See how expensive FPGA is. Prices of ModelSim and Xilinx product is not cheap. Matlab prices not included
I don’t think this is final but could give you a ball park figure:
A couple years ago, Synplify Pro was about $20K (US dollars), ModelSim SE about $20K, HyperLynx GHz about $47K. The lighter versions were roughly a third of that.
Xilinx stuff: ISE Foundation about $3000. WebPACK is of course free. EDK about $500. System Generator for DSP about $1000.
Yearly support is usually an unpleasant fraction of the purchase price. If you discontinue support, you stop getting software updates, and may lose access to tech support.
I wish companies would list their product prices. No fun listening to a salesman for a half hour only to learn the price is in the stratosphere. Sometimes you can find prices in the “product announcement” or “product review” sections of engineering magazines.
Are U.S. Stocks Cheap Based On 12-Month Forward PE For The S&P 500?
Are U.S. Stocks Cheap Based On 12-Month Forward PE For The S&P 500? Part I seekingalpha.comBullish analysts are claiming that U.S. stocks are “cheap” based on 12-month forward PEs. Bearish analysts actually claim that stocks are expensive on a proper accounting of the historical average 12-month forward PE, and/or…
–Good points on the difficulty of using 12-month forward earnings estimates to determine under/over valuation of the Stock Market. However, I would agree with Hussman that a much better approach is to simply use Shiller’s CAPE as a valuation tool and forget about notoriously inaccurate future earnings estimates. As I’m sure you’ve seen on his site, Hussman has provident numerous expositions of this approach and shown that over a 10 year time frame a CAPE valuation approach works very well! The other interesting conclusion is that in a 1 to 5 year time frame, valuation is of relatively little use in estimating market performance – in other words, valuation matters in the long run, but in the short and intermediate term, not so much.
And as Hussman points out, the market is currently priced to deliver only around 4% nominal returns over the next 10 years – which is not enough considering the prospective risk and volatility of owning stocks. So you can put me with Hussman in the camp of observers that believe the market is OVERVALUED.
Whoa! 44 quant models to deeply analyze best stocks daily. Premium paid service will be justified. $100 per month will be cheap!!
I have 3 quant models running right now on various top performing stocks from Canada, US, and UK. After careful analysis, it seems I will have a total of a whopping 44 models to be applied for deep analysis. This will be serious stuff and the only kind of its service in the world. According to our informal survey, 25% are willing to pay over $100 per month for this. If it proves to profitable for our paying members, we will definitely expand it even further for portfolio analysis. This going to very exciting for sure and hopefully pay for all including me!!
