Well that went over like a lead balloon with the street anyway. Let's see what the regulators thought.

HLF Underperform

I actually did O.K. on two previous HLF red thumbs but I've taken a beating red thumbing momentum stocks in general. This one's a binary proposition on whether regulators will shut them down or not. My brother was once recruited by Primerica, and to [more]

MKArch commented on MKArch's pitch for NQ. 11:58 AM

I think Thursdays announcement pretty much guarantees that PwC is out as their auditor. The only question is do they resign or does NQ fire them. Unless they can get some no name replacement willing to play ball and look the other way for the big [more]

SRPT Outperform

Following a guy on Yahoo Finance that sounds like he knows what he's talking about. Yep really that's it. O.K. he made an interesting argument for HART a similar company I have done a little investigating into so I'm taking a flier that he [more]

FIATY Outperform

I'm not that much of a car buff to begin with and analyzing stocks is not a full time job for me so there's no way I'm diving down into all the brands and all the markets the combined Fiat-Chrysler compete in. Stocks like this one interest me when I [more]

I just finished listening to an investor conference that I'll link to below and thought I add the investor presentation link I posted on TSIF's counterpoint as well. Investor Conference: http://www.wsw.com/webcast/threepa13/hart/ Investor [more]

I was thinking the same thing when I read your pitch TSIF that it was nice to get some constructive feedback from another member of CAPS. It's a shame TMF doesn't seem interested in promoting this anymore. I think we have about 15 months before we [more]

Lesson #3, BBRY currently sits down 23% from my entry point, see lesson #2 above. I believe Murphy had a law about this.

Hi TSIF, This has to be the nicest rebuttal to my thesis ever. I rec'd your post to get a good bear argument in the top post spot to help inaugurate this new comer. I don't know if you came across the investor presentation where they provide some [more]

Learning to trust yourself. A story about one portfolio outperformed all others.

Thanks Deej, I'm guessing you didn't take the beating I took in the great recesion either. If I counted my gains from the height of the recession my returns would be astounding but I think it's more realistic to look out over the

I'm a self taught (with a lot of help from my days as a H.G. sub) investor with zero formal accounting background so I'm always tempering my confidence in myself with my worry that maybe I just got lucky or; "what is

Just cashed in my third successful red thumb on the expected failure to file their 20F by the extension deadline. Looking forward to cashing in on the coup de grace in a few days when they announce their auditor resigned.

Boug, I was a member of H.G. for a long time but had to drop my subscription due to the economy. I was very satisfied with the service but no one or service is perfect and they had their share of misses. I haven't seen the official TMF rec/ write up [more]

This is the latest in a number of home builders I picked up, mostly during the great recession. Even though home building has come back strong lately at ~900K units per year pace in the U.S. right now, we are still at historically low levels unseen [more]
