While this board seems to consist of experts in
OTHER stocks but not very smart in this one, I would
love for you to just post the symbols and prices of
your picks today. Then in a month let us know how you
did. So many of you, including MR! Swamp, pick stocks
from the rear view mirror. While hindsight is 20/20,
its also quite boring. I am here to learn about
Now back to Switzerland. Mexico. Excessive travel.
Nuskin. Earnings. Cash on hand. Buddy system hiring. All
of the juicy stuff that makes this such a great
stock. Has anyone heard when the earnings (ha!) will be
out or when the conference call is? Will Mark LeDoux
be on it?
As for your gender, I am always
looking a profiles to see if I can find out if Mark is
using plants to post on this board. That's why I am so
sure you aren't one of them, you are too damn smart.
Should have paid a little more attention in spelling,
gave in last year-
Check ABH(H) board I
recommended from 1 1/4 up+ over last 6 months- my goodness my
advice has been better than even my own
Even my selling signal for NAII at $4 was not off
mark- my goodness- a real diary of my advice, and you
people just try to correct spelling errors.
I will remind you of this many times because if
you followed uo would have doubled your money=check
the 3 and only 3 I mentioned LINK (rose 50% last 10
days) ITIG was in 6's last month, Prls was as high as
14 1/2 since my recommendation-gee give me same
advice and I will send you lifetime annuities!!!!!
OK Exoudel, no argument with your last post. NAII
is a small company that is obviously subject to
influence vis a vis the Ledoux family. As such, feel free
to keep Mr. Ledoux honest. (If I may be so bold, I
would recommend stating anything you find out very
matter-of-factly though; stating your findings as personal attacks
on Mr. LaDoux will just end up having them ignored
as the rantings of a jilted ex-employee or friend.)
(BTW, your last post, I think, accomplished this
In the meantime, let's try to get some more info on
this company and its prospects.
What do you think I have been doing here. This
isn't water cooler gossip. This is FACTUAL information
that totally pertains to the way this company
I know you don't want me rehash it all but just for
grins try a few on.
Marks pattern of putting NAI
facilities the same place as his vacation homes and where
his relatives live. Switzerland and Mexico
the wifes voice coach to now be a NAII executive.
Consulting agreements with relatives that are not in the
best interests of NAI or the shareholders.
144 at HUGE prices before publicly disclosing they
had fired the most important person in the company at
These are facts. Research what you will.
You will get to this stuff sometime. If you can get
Mark on the phone, ask him!
That's just the gossip
We could go analyze the Q's and K's and see
the pattern that ended mysteriously when Spencer
left. We could correlate that to the downturns in the
industry and the other crutches they use to hid ineptness.
Or we could deal with what is. And what is, is this.
You don't want to know the truth! Okay, I get that.
Got some bad news for ya...TOO BAD. You only have one
choice. Stop reading my posts because I will not stop
until I know Mark LeDoux is running this company the
way he knows how. With integrity and ability. He had
it at one time. He just needs to relearn how to do
There is no personal vendetta here. I like
LeDoux as a person. I think he is lost and confused. I
think he will find his way out of the jungle. I just
want it to be sooner rather than later.
Let's focus on the company, not personalities. If
you have some situation that is personal about LeDoux
that relates to business, then maybe it makes sense to
tell us. Otherwise save your gossip for the water
Once again, it seems that some people have lost
their focus of this board. It is about a company, not
about "friends", "relatives", "ex-employees" and other
people who care to air their personal problems that they
may have or do have with NAI. I would like to hear
more information about NAI, and less about people and
their personal gripes against NAI. And no, I am not
associated with NAI or their staff.
Oh jees, Matriarch! Now you are claiming I(!) am
I am the guy who finally jumped
into this message posting to try to stop the petty
backbiting and meaningless claims about who hates who, who
works for who, etc....in order to try to get some good
old fashioned facts out about this company through
good old fashioned research. All my facts are from
press releases or the 1997 Annual Report. Nothing
"inside" about my stuff, sorry. (Go back and re-read my
To ease you mind, I have never been to Carlsbad, CA
(or wherever NAII's headquarters is), I don't know
anyone who works at NAII, heck,I've never even taken a
vitamin before (not counting Flintstones many years ago),
I just recently began investing in this stock and I
live 2000 miles from CA.
I really hoped
(actually still hope) that 50 people would join in and do
some good hard research on this company, so we can all
determine whether to: 1) Stay in, 2)Get out, 3)Buy more. I
spent a little time sharing some of MY research in the
hopes of getting others to contribute meaningful
discussion. I hope others will do the same.
the way, not all research has to turn up positive
things. We need to know negative things too. But let's
keep all the feedback on a meaningful level. Again,
posting that Mark Ladeux's ex-wife's, sister's, cousin is
a lesbian televangelist really has no value to any
discussion on whether or not to buy, sell or hold this
C'mon doesn't ANYBODY have anything meaningful to
contribute about this stock or even this industry? BTW, I
have ordered a copy of the 1998 annual report; I'll
let you know what I find out since all I have is a
the article is describing a company in the
past...from the press releases since that time, much has
changed-you know it, and so do I...your explanations of
"things" leads me to draw the conclusion that you are
accepting info. from sources not available to the average
shareholder...in depth details that are not easy to glean from
what is published...why is that? I have stated that I
am an ex-employee, and have first hand knowledge of
people/personalities, but you, tech doggie, keep pumping out info that
remind me of typical "LeDouxisms" a round about way of
saying you have inside info....tell me, did they plan to
declare the building losses as a way to report income
once they had a valid tennant for the Carlsbad
building?? An easy way to bring back income and make future
profits appear better than they are??
If I can catch
on to this...then anyone can.....who are they
the article talked about NAI in December of 1998.
That's not the company we have today. LeDoux has run off
all of the talent. All that remains are drunks, bible
thumpers and yes men. The web site sucks. But on the last
conference call anyone was INVITED TO, the new management
team said they were updating it. Didn't happen. Said
they were getting proactive with the investors. Didn't
happen. And said they were poising the company for the
future. Hasn't happened. What we are reading is planted
drivel. Look at the facts. Nothing is happening. Sales
down. Earnings down. Yes DOWN. Look inside the numbers.
Write off of the building or no writeoff, we are headed
south fast. And we are just watching it happen. And
LeDoux thinks he's doing his job. News for you MARKIE!
It's too bad Swamp killed everyone off
with his wonderful "buy alert" on ITIG. I miss
his/her/mark/julie/lavender slanted view.
