    HLF creamed. Good, not great numbers

    This is what I was talking about, you have to have increasing revenue and profits, or you get sold down the crapalooie.

    We have to hit all the bells and whistles and project upward end of year results.

    How do you do that if you don't have any more capacity? (I know, it is a great problem, but....)

    How do you get more capacity if you're already running three shifts 24/7?

    There could be another twenty bucks in this stock, but tell me how we get past the numbers drill when the "investment" in additional capacity comes right off the top, given they go for that effort.

    I need to feel more secure about the next twenty bucks.

    • While not getting sold down the "craplouie", DORM beat the mean earnings estimates by $.01, but missed on revenues. It's up a little over a buck, but on very low volume. It's a solid company, in another great sector, but is getting little better than a yawn from The Street. That said, we might see a buying increase late in the day after the big guns see it's steady as she goes. We'll see.
      I'm holding my RGR and hoping for a big beat. Tough to add at these prices though. We'll know soon enough.
      Good luck, longs.

    • Building new plants is a capital investment not an expense. It consumes cash, which is plentiful, but does not hit the P & L.

      • I agree with ezinvestor. In the long run wise capital investment will increase stockholder's equity more than cash will, especially when a company's products are in such high demand. Comparing present and future return-on-assets ratios will tell us how wise it was. I don't think that we're dealing with a fad here, so invest away, RGR management. That's part of growing, right?

    • HLF is Herbalife, and the CEO said something during the CC shmooze that set off the sell bells.

      I'm just saying.

      • Look at the chart for Nu Skin (NUS). I think this is another multi level marketing company and it got hammered in unison with HLF. The short sellers probably planned this along with David Einhorn to get these down. I'm more interested in guns right now, don't see the comparison at all. I think it had to do with their MLM business schemes.
