I own LINE but wouldn't describe myself as a pumper, more of a concerned unit holder. I wouldn't advise anyone to follow the investment strategy I use. But I like much of what board members present as facts even if those facts should lead one to sell. the problem is those with negative views of LINE seldom present any facts that the company hasn't disclosed through their 10k/q They describe the company as a loser and POS but never add to my understanding of the company.
You have a point. Follow this old adage that has served many a man well. "Where there is smoke there is fire". If I tell you there's smoke do I have to tell you the particulars of how the fire got started for you to avoid the fire?
