Melissa Lee profited handsomely from AAPL bashing for 6 months on the public airwaves.
But it was clearly unprofessional, and the rumor is she's being investigated for insider trading, and manipulation at the behest of hedge fund friends and cronies. The SEC will follow the money trail to her, emails etc before filing formal charges. Fast Money had to let her go. Her actions, albeit white collar, are akin to bank robbery when you consider the billions in losses both the company and investors have lost due to hermalfeasance and covert actions which will be proven over the September 2012 timeline. About time.
Same nonsense "analyst" Henry Blodget was charged with. Banned from the market for media PR stock manipulation he admitted to so to save his butt from serious prison time. Like Melissa Lee, just too cosy with GS & JPM hedge funds.
Fast Money finally saw the light and recognized her as a real liability. Can we now get some fair and balanced financial news reporting???
AAPL up today on the news of Melissa Lee firing on Fast Money. The game is up. Along with Samsung and Chinese government getting caught via emails on "paying students to bash Apple", Melissa Lee using her bully pulpit on Fast Money to attack AAPL for 6 months at every opportunity stinks to high heaven
There is a reason why Kelly keeps getting moved around..... He computer like monotone speech pattern gets to you after a few shows....... Nice girl..appears smart... But she is not good with a panel discussion.. Watch a few shows and you will agree.
