  • Now if MSLP can only sync up their production with demand. Then they will have a $220M+ revenue platform to operate from. it is doable and maybe tis is the year they sustain their execution. it is really an easy problem to work through. Like everything else.

  • Hi guys,

    I own a small nutrition company (not trying to promote here so I'll withhold the name). We are of course nowhere near the size of MusclePharm but do technically compete with them because we sell a pre-workout. In the past, MusclePharm's products have been terrible. They relied heavily on marketing and strengthening b2b relationships, rather than making products that are actually good. There is a trend in the supplement industry towards full transparency and research-based ingredients/dosing and MusclePharm (until now) has been extremely stubborn. They have utilized proprietary blends on all their product labels since the company's inception and generally don't provide anywhere near the correct dosing of most ingredients across all their products.

    However, the Hardcore Series is different. All labels are transparent and all ingredients are dosed correctly, in-line with published scientific research. This to me shows that MusclePharm has gotten the memo and may start to really attract the more knowledgeable crowd rather than just the idiots who buy the shiniest product on the shelf at GNC.

    Anyway, I initiated a small position in MusclePharm today because I can tell the company is at least on track in terms of products. Whether the meatheads who run the show will ruin this remains to be seen. GLTAL

    Buying in the 3s

    by willk5791 Mar 17, 2015 11:38 AM

    Yes earnings were horrible (due to high spending), and the company's spending habits ahave been excessive, but at these low prices I see it as a great oportunity to buy in. I bought shares today at $4.00 and then again at $2.90. One good quarter like Q2 of 2014, and it'll be right back up to the $6-$8 range. They have a great brand, great products, and good growth; now they just need to refine their management techniques and cut some costs. I think todays drop will show them that. The company is held 35% by insiders, so all the people working for Muscle Pharm are hurting today also.

    Q1 + Backlog seems to suggest $58M QTR

    by chaines1443 May 11, 2015 6:16 PM

    It looks like they may make a profit this year. I like the $200 million plus revenue this year. It's a far cry from the $60 million a few years ago. The report was very encouraging.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • OTC, NASDAQ, NYSE it doesn't matter where you look you will not find a better deal than MSLP selling for $4 per share. Anything under $8 this stock is an absolute steal. I bought every share I could buy and I just put my 1971 Vette up for sale to buy more. In a year or two I'll be able to sell the shares I buy with my Vette proceeds to buy 3 Vettes if I want. I can't believe anyone would sell their shares at these prices.

    When you finally get to the bottom of the report...

    by rkoenn May 11, 2015 8:09 PM

    You do make some good points and you're right but MSLP has been introducing new products into the market and new products cost money to develop, manufacture and ship. They're now getting into the energy drink market which I believe will make them more money than even Brad can spend.

    Hardcore Series Actually Something

    by mtheis13 Mar 18, 2015 10:35 AM

    What? Are you that dumb? I work out 5 days a week and I use MP products. I started using their products over a year ago. I love the Assault but when the Arnold series came out I started using it. I work out with about 12 other guys and we all use something. About 7 of the guys I work out with use MP products and I can't believe you would say it's terrible. I just ordered the Hardcore line (Yesterday) so I can't say anything about it yet, I'll have it by Friday. I am stunned! In all the years of using almost everything that came to market including Andro (which I really like) MP is in the top 2 as far as how well it works. Have you even tried the Assault? Have you tried the Arnold line? They work! I can't wait to try the Hardcore, I'm sure I won't be disappointed. In fact everyone in my group is excited about trying it. I just can't believe you would say it's terrible. If it was terrible the people who use it would not reorder it but they do. I've tried a lot of stuff that didn't work well but MP products work.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • As I posted yesterday, I sold over half my position. Today I bought back the hares I sold yesterday and I added a boat load on top of that. This is a strong buy at these prices. Brad still needs to go.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • You can thank MSLP management, Drew Ciccarelli, Gabe Nix and James Filippone.

    And another year goes by.

    by spineles49 Mar 16, 2015 5:10 PM

    imo it is called wall street looking at recent financial statements and clearly saying the company is for whatever reason in big time trouble no matter how many deals they are signing with whoever/whatever etc and therefore CRUSHING the stock down 50% in a heart beat. obviously there's a huge problem be it Brad or more. WHERE IS THE DR ON THIS COMPANY. he sure owns enuf of it to care I would think. or maybe not. if he and other big owners don't come in quickly, this is not going back up any time soon if at all and we are all screwed. imo

    Really? Did you not see the 2014 financial reports released yesterday? Not so hot, to say the least.

    I think Willk agreed with you - I don't see how he can be in agreement with Why and have a Strong Buy attached to his name.

    How do you see them becoming profitable? Gross margin increased this quarter and yet the net loss balooned. They have to pay $2 million to pay Capstone in Q2 and millions more in stock compensation. Almost all the cash position they have is their $4 million loan, which is secured in part by over 800,000 shares and multiple convents of which they've broken. The bank has been okay with it to date, but how long will that last? The expansion mode they're in is incompatible with profitability, especially given management's very questionable decision-making.

    HOW'S IF FEEL TO GET SCAMMED AT THIS LEVEL

    by osprey.watch3 Mar 18, 2015 7:46 PM

    Sales are DOWN.
    LOSSES are UP to $16.2 MILLION.
    They still have to pay all of those "spokesmen".
    The end is near.

    HOW'S IF FEEL TO GET SCAMMED AT THIS LEVEL

    by osprey.watch3 Mar 18, 2015 7:46 PM

    You are an idiot. And you are probably always going to be poor. Good luck with your investing.

  • However, the sad picture remains. A muscle brain still runs the company, and not very well. I can tell you the is at least one institutional shareholder that is done with his antics and lack of business acumen. Just be prepared for Brad to be removed from the company. It might actually take a vote. This is a text book example of how a good company can be a bad stock - BAD MANAGEMENT.

    I would imagine the stock would run several dollars higher upon hearing the confirming news that he has been shown the door.

    Buying in the 3s

    by willk5791 Mar 17, 2015 11:38 AM

    I bought today at $3.38 and 3.98. The quarter stank, pure and simple, and management screwed up last year by initially guiding to a EPS of about $0.50 and then posting a loss of $1.25. But, the story is still in evolution. They are constantly innovating and growing revenues beautifully. Cash on hand is poor, and stock based compensation is excessive. But, with improved management, they should hopefully become profitable.

    Buying in the 3s

    After doing some research here is what I found out. An OTC stock can After doing some research here is what I found out. An OTC stock can trade after hours because this is a non-exchange traded stock so guess what. There are no hours. The hours are set by the exchanges and by the SEC. The brokerage may prohibit OTC trades after hours. So end of discussion if that is true. But all brokerages set their own rules so if they allow it the following can go on.

    This means that traders and/or market makers can trade as long as they want in this stock. These can be the same guy but they could be two different people.

    The two issues/questions that come up.

    1) Does the traders platform support OTC trades? This one is easy if their platform doesn't support it they would have to be on the phone to the market maker and for the few dollars they would make I am betting they are headed home to get a drink.

    By OTC trades I mean electronic input of the order and electronic confirmation that the order has been filled. Whether it is a sell or a buy. No electronic order matching is available.

    2) Is a market maker willing to manually trade this stock after hours? (Not a big money maker for a market maker so the guy must be there for something else unless we have a high volume day.) It could be the market maker is the trader themselves so this could work with one person. But it does take one market maker to manually match the orders otherwise no trading happening here.

    Usually after hours trading is all performed electronically. In our case since CPRK does not have electronic order matching... because CPRK is not traded on an exchange somebody has to hang around to make these trades happen manually.

    The SEC doesn't normally care when a stock trades. (There are blackout times for insiders and other times but that is another story and not really germane to this discussion.)

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
