So I REALLY hope I'm wrong on this, but I talked to a close friend yesterday (albeit a third party source... so this is HEARSAY, take it with a grain of salt), but he is close with the marketing director of the company), and a high-level supplier of MusclePharm products. The general consensus among people close to the situation, is the numbers that are coming out next week are going to be bad... they've been hemorrhaging, and are a long way off from making a profit. There also seems to be concern that there is a problem of less-than-savvy business leadership at the top. The guys who run the company are muscle guys, says my friend, not business guys... so that's the long term concern.
Here's my take... I have a horrible feeling that we're going to see a drop to 0.0055-0.0070 range next week when the numbers come out. Which is why I am strongly considering selling now, and buying back in when it bottoms out. That's based on experience, a gut feeling, and semi-solid information.
Although I think that there is a problem with the leadership of this company, I do believe that have a TON of things going for them long-term, so holding wouldn't be the worst option in the world for the optimists here. It's risk/reward with these guys, if their sponsorships/excessive spending pays off in the long run.
But short term, things are not going to be pretty, in my opinion. Let's hope I'm wrong.
One last point I forgot to mention... there is also a lot of concern from those I've talked to close to the situation regarding the growing amount of legal cases mounting against them. Are the accusations warranted? Who knows, I'm not a judge (if I had to guess, based on the nature of the supplement industry, I'd say a lot of them are UNWARRANTED). But they cause a lot of financial strain on the company, even if their not, and are the reason for the "plunge" that's going to happen late next week in my opinion.
Sorry, forgot to mention that in my original post. I'd love to hear your thoughts, I know there are a lot of opinions out there.
