Re: Woo Hoo! HLF

I haven't gone through Ackman's presentation, but it sounds uninspiring. If nothing new was mentioned, I am having doubts about his intelligence. If this was the most important presentation of his career....

Re: HLF oh boy!

And so Ackman just happened to hold (or not know?) this oh-so-vital information for nearly two years AFTER he initially began shorting the company? And only now he wants to reveal it?

My guess is that it's part of his strategy. If he [more]

Re: HLF oh boy!

I am on the edge of my seat to hear what he has to put on the table. Then again, I am biased because I am always eager to see fraud exposed.

Re: Recent decline of TFSL price

It could just be some market turbulence. FFNW and NFBK have also declined from their highs as well, and they are doing share repurchases.

Re: EXETF -- no news is what kind of news?

From the last call, management said they were waiting for government clearance to sell part of the company, and they expected to hear by 30 Jun.

It's possible that the company got bad news, but I think it's more likely that the government [more]

RMP selling

Hi Jim,

You've sold three positions because you needed capital for something better. Is it NRF since that is your latest buy, or are there more purchases coming in the near future?

Thanks,
Carl

Re: Latest comments on QCOR buyout

QCOR is 95 now. By selling right after the buyout announcement, I left thousands on the table.

I can't complain too much, though. QCOR has been consistently a profitable investment especially using options.

I think I jumped the gun [more]

Re: Latest comments on QCOR buyout

I sold my QCOR a long time ago right after the merger was announced. It was too quick, and I left a lot of money on the table.

I think physdude said he wanted to own the combined company because he believed Acthar would immensely boost [more]

Re: Z

Yes, I agree with the Yelp analogy also.

However, I've heard stories that Yelp employs mafia tactics against the businesses. I've heard that Yelp will approach a business and solicit them to advertise on Yelp. If the business refuses, there [more]

Re: Z

Don't get me wrong, I don't like middle men, either. I think your analogy is flawed though, in that I fail to see what value a dealer provides outside of a service center. Buying and selling a house, however, is far more involved than walking down [more]

Re: Z

I guess I'm personally more comfortable with corporations using leverage against other corporations, rather than the "little guy" (i.e. Realtors.).

I don't believe that the realtors are the little guys in the same way as [more]

Re: Z

The most telling thing for me is the subtext I get from your post. It doesn't seem like you gleefully handed them money over, in order to use a great service. It sounds like you were strong armed, or had little choice, and did so [more]
