    Im sensing a dividend about to be pinched off

    I disagree, and will bet a crab cake or two at that restaurant not too far from the house of a guy, may he RIP, who made us all laugh. I say he keeps going with the dividend right until the end. Once you start raping a company, it is hard to stop.

    Forget the technicals, the fundamental are bad. Nu Skin cannot explain away the extraordinary inventory build-up. At some point, this tanks the stock as it proves the growth was phoney. See Sam Antar's blog about this...

    This should be a going concern. I feel sorry for the shareholders and the fractional investors. I am sure the stock is in friendly hands by now, with no chance of going higher because of improvement in earnings. I imagine the Pasadena Pumper and the master licensees are pumping it and even hold it. I won't shed a tear when LPHI goes to pennies, but innocent people listening to these clowns will be hurt. The fractional investors? Some were greedy, expecting something for nothing. They wanted to hear that double digit returns were easy to get...just for them. Lesson learned. The innocent who got bamboozeled by a slick sales pitch? Lesson learned.

    This will soon be a going concern, if it isn't already in the practical sense. The stock is all in friendly hands, otherwise it would have tanked by now on this horrible news.

    Our recurring operations are not currently generating sufficient cash to support operations. To supplement recurring operations, we have sold most of the settlements we held for investment and have monetized our investment in the life settlement trust. While we believe we could further support our working capital through other possible asset dispositions, borrowings or equity sales, our opportunities for generating significant cash apart from continuing operations are narrowing. We believe we must generate approximately $30 million in annual revenues to fund our operations and pay dividends, and we are working toward that end. In the meanwhile, we are conserving our cash. We have decreased our cash dividends and may reduce or eliminate the dividends for the remainder of fiscal 2015 and for 2016 to conserve working capital until we can realize improved operating results.

    So why is the stock valued so high?

    We called it here. This was valued at pre-2008 VBT and never revalued. It was leveraged to the hilt. LPHI was anything but transparent about the valuation of the trust, and the pumpers purportedly bragged that it would bail the company out. This means LPHI cannot even make a good investment in life settlements for themselves. Oh, boy! There goes any credibility for the "Architect of life settlements."

    Oh, yeah. They bought in because or an erroneous assumption that shorts unfairly beat the stock price down. That also just isn't so. The shorts are mostly very long gone, and the stock isn't going up because the sales and earning are horrible and will likely never reverse.

    The stock has been propped up by the Kool Aid drinkers who now own almost all the shares outside of a few indexes. They bought with the promise that LP could win all their lawsuits...and that just isn't so. They bought in with the promise that a trust investment would bail them out, and that definitely isn't going to ever happen. Who knows what the Pasadena Pumper told them? There is a sucker born every minute, and for every seller of this stock someone is buying. Why? I cannot comprehend why.
