HLF is rumored to be in talks to buy MJNA ( a public marijauna production and sales company) for medicinal marijauna. This is good as this stuff is becoming legal all over the country and the margins are enormous!!
The most popular small cap stocks (which we define as having market capitalizations between $1 billion and $5 billion) among hedge funds generate an average excess return of 18 percentage points per year, according to our research on 13F filings. Learn more about our research on small cap picks. We think that this is because these stocks are less widely owned by mutual funds and less frequently covered by the financial media, making them more likely to be undervalued or overvalued. We also like to review individual funds’ small cap picks and treat them as a list of initial ideas that investors can research further if a stock looks like a good value. Here are the five largest small cap holdings from Ken Heebner’s Capital Growth Management as of the end of December (or see the full list of Heebner's stock picks):
The fund increased the size of its position in Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) by 41% to a total of 3.4 million shares. Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) has been quite volatile the past few months after billionaire Bill Ackman of Pershing Square accused the company of being a pyramid scheme and announced a large short position (find Ackman's stock picks). The company does have very attractive value metrics- for example, the trailing earnings multiple is only 9- and has been experiencing decent growth in both revenue and earnings. Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) also currently pays a dividend yield of over 3%.
Your talking out your arssss singhlion. SEC and FTC mentioned have nothing to belgian courts. SEC and FTC are US entities, not Belgium. I think you've been eating too many Belgium Waffles....
No one in Mexico and the rest of the world is following this Ackman manipulation. We will be just fine thank you.
That's funny. Just like the distributor biz in every industry I have worked in.... They sell more, we make more money. The point you fools keep missing is that you have to see the product in order for anyone to really make anything.
Apparently you don't know the potential impact of "insert a good salesperson".
The point was to Gordon to have shorted AAPL at 700 back last September when I posted the original message. I agree with the fact that AAPL is not going much lower at this point unless the news somehow gets worse and competitors get smarter (which might happen).
Total Disclosure: I have only 500 shares of FSLR now. But in excess of 10,000 in Herbalife. Ackman is a boneheaded snob to the point that his nose is bigger than his brain. HLF will double in the next 12 months.

Also, just to add to Gordon's stupidity with his shorting recommendation, 4 months ago, he was still telling people to short the stock when it was at $12 and said it was going to $9. REALLY!! That is like trying to squeeze orange juice out of the orange pits. You did great from $150 down to $11. It's now burned you a little by doubling when you said short the stock at $12. The risk/reward to your career is not worth betting on a $3 drop. Show me the next $150 stock going to $11. You will probably never do it again in your career as much as you would love to. But you got to move on and try to find some other very overvalued stock in an overvalued industry. FSLR is no longer it. Your recommendation of shorting a $20 steel stock is kind of lame too. GO BIG... THINK BIG. SHORT APPL at $700. In 5 years you can come back and say the same #$%$ that you are saying about FSLR. A great leader is gone for that company, I fear the worst for AAPL in the next 5 years. Less
And with 5 trading halts all the way up. Good luck on the cover....
Congrats longs. I really didn't think they would be able to sustain that type of earnings number through 2015.
So... guess CNBC is wrong all over the board...
