    EL.........New Info!!!!

    While I was researching my stocks on , I came across some info concerning EL, Estee
    Lauder Companies Inc. fell 3 15/16, or 4 percent, to 95
    9/16 and traded as low as 95 1/2. The top U.S. maker
    of cosmetics sold in department stores said the
    Lauder family will sell as much as $362 million in
    common stock, representing 4.5 percent of the family's
    holdings. The maker of Clinique, Aveda and its namesake
    cosmetics and fragrances said the family was selling shares
    to diversify its investments.

    • Your post is difficult to understand and is
      internally illogical. Regardless, your claim that any
      surprise will be on the downside is not borne out upon
      review of every single quarter this stock has ever
      had--no downside surprises. Even you would have to admit
      that you are shocked that such an "overblown" stock,
      after the Lauders' sale, after the market getting
      hammered, after the recent wild runup, would still finish
      today at 95 and change. I guess you acknowledged the
      strength of this stock by upwardely revising your crater
      point for EL; two weeks ago it was 50, now its 70.
      You're a typical hypster fool who hasn't a
      would think you were talking about ORCL the way you
      talk about this stock. While I can believbe this stock
      might be 70 someday, I also see it at 120. The high or
      the low estimates rest primarily on the next
      direction the market will take. If we see 12,000 Dow before
      9000, I'm right. The other way, you're right. As for
      who's a jerk, only an idiot would short a high growth
      gem like this in the midst of a bull market. I
      suspect you also short AOL, too.

    • you're very unappreciative. i sincerely you're
      contributing to my el annuity. any jerk can make money long an
      overpriced stock like el in a bull market. the trick is to
      make money on an overblown stock like el from the
      short side in a bull market. surprises on this little
      honey are apt to be on the downside. i'm there. but
      you've chased me off this thread. i'll be back when it
      crosses 70.

    • EL just hit 95 1/2...guess you were wrong...again. How does your collar feel? A bit tight?

    • I don't see any dilution either, just a 10%
      increase in the float. That gives more folks a chance to
      invest in this great company. I still think the drop is
      a knee jerk reaction to a sale by the Lauders by
      those who sell first and analyze later. Also, the
      nervous nellies are always looking for an excuse to take
      profits after a big runup.

    • What dilution happened? What did I miss? Is it
      just that more shares are trading? That would be cool,
      because my ownership is the same.

      I am worried if
      there are new shares, though. I wouldn't like that


    • but i make no secret of my trades...i short 5,000
      at the end of each month and i take it back when i
      say i do...i'm still short 2500 and a bunch of may
      par calls...i'm about to cover a short 5 lot of may
      95 calls now,at about 2 that i sold at seven. watch
      em deee da

    • i covered 2500 shares, half my short today, at around 92.5..made about 7.5 points on this go-round....just doing my job, providing deee da. thank you, lauders

    • that there has been so little comment about the sale of such a large chunk of EL stock by the family to "diversify" has provoked so little comment... anybody out there have anything to say?
