Sucking Alpha is nothing more than another Yahoo message board. They don't edit anything that's submitted or check on the credentials or sources of those who write. The only thing they do is delete responses that are critical or that would frighten away the poor idiots who actually advertise with them.
There are some decent contributors, but a lot of the others appear to be school kids, substance abusers, shills and the homeless who have fallen through the social safety net and set up their office with a laptop in a bus station toilet stall.
You should consider writing for Seeking Alpha. I thought they had hit bottom already, but you'd actually suck out the few remaining traces of intelligence still floating about there.
At one point he said it was too low to sell and now you should wait because it's not high enough to buy. Once again he'll manage to say 19 completely different things about a stock and whatever eventually happens he'll refer to the one thing he said that fits and conveniently forget the other 18 lame brain things.
Interesting reversal on common strategy. For Jimmie, it's sell on the rumor and buy on the news.
He says he just want to make you money, ignoring all the money he loses for investors as prices are jerked around by his ovine followers who buy and sell ever time he spews more flatulence. Definitely a case of all sound and [flurry], signifying nada.
Not really odd. Sucking Alpha obviously has no standards and makes no attempt to screen submissions sent in by high school drop outs, pump & dumpers, the mentally challenged or agenda-promoting shills. There are some worthwhile articles written by fair & balanced authors, all of whom give SA a veneer of respectability, but they don't undo the damage done by the unscrupulous or unintelligent.
When LINE changed from quarterly to monthly dividends, one of the geniuses announced they had cut their dividend. Seriously, if any of you has a 3rd grader at home, have him/her write something and submit it to Seeking Alpha. As long as it's not badly stained by peanut butter smears, they'll publish it.
' If life spontaneous arose..."
We don't use adjectives to modify verbs. If life spontaneously arose ...
"a deliberate act to cause confusion and harm. You profited, but, someone else lost,"
Yes, in this case, I also profited because I felt confident about the reality versus the flimflam. Aside from that, some of the rubbish on Sucking Alpha knocking LINE was so obviously being promoted by low-life idiots (I'm pretty sure that's a qualification for writing for Sucking Alpha) that it just seemed like an opportunity.
But we've all been on the other side of such scams, probably when we were younger and more prone to panic, but being naïve does not mean someone is entitled to pick your pocket. Hedgeye and also James Kostohryz, Proud to be An American, Regarded Solutions ... all of whom are offered a podium on Sucking Alpha to earn their penny-a-click welfare payments should be held accountable for the damage they've done. Some are simply stupid but others lie to benefit themselves. Freedom of speech does not mean there's no accountability for what you say. Bernie Madoff would love some company.
And don't forget when he called the kettle black, probably saying more about himself than the idiot Pisani:
"In December 2006, Mad Money host Jim Cramer used Pisani as an example of an easily manipulated reporter used by hedge fund managers to spread false statements about a company in order to illegally drive the stock price down. Cramer said, "It’s really important to get the Pisanis of the world and people talking about it as if there is something wrong..."
I agree that the article is good, especially for Motley Fool, concerning the reasons why the deal should go through. It's odd that Yahoo won't let anyone reference/link websites for articles posted on Yahoo, especially the ones who are paying for the privilege. More clicks, more revenue.
And then there's this idiot: Regarded Solutions Who wrote:
"As detailed with amazing accuracy in this must read article, by perhaps the brightest contributor on any website, James A. Kostohryz, any investor must think long and hard as to why it is worth owning shares of LNCO"
... in his screed entitled Holding High-Yield Dividend Stocks Too Long Could Wreck Your Portfolio
"...to shareholders of record as of the close of business on December 12, 2013"
The record day is the 12th. The ex-div day is the 10th. It went ex-div today.
Standards! Above all else, standards. Mental collapse is no excuse. The next thing you'll be telling me is that it's OK to wear white after Labor Day!!!
"Any smart shorts who had covered had done so already; either last Friday (which I thought it was too soon), today during market hours (which I did) ..."
Do even have a remote notion of how feeble and whiny you sound? I assume you typed that in your office in the men's room at the bus station. Why not man up and retain a small shred of dignity. You've clearly never owned, much less sold short, any stock.
I was wrong about one thing. I said you'd vanish like a fa_rt in a strong wind. Obviously you're a bigger store of flatulence than even I guessed. Can never figure out why so many Yahoo message boards have at least one loser like you. I suspect it's because the meth rehabilitation halfway houses are failing in their difficult work.
Well if he's like the other Sucking Alpha "writers" who claimed LINE and LNCO were going down, he'll claim he's still right and everyone else is just failing to see what he alone can.
Seriously, look at this one: "Linn Effectively Admits To Misleading Investors And Announces Key Accounting Changes" by James A. Kostohryz. This doofus is still right and everyone else is wrong in his teeny brain.
And if you write a critical comment on SA as I did, it will be deleted. The morons who censor there are far more interested in cutting out the truth posted by disgruntled readers than they are in the gibberish and rubbish they publish.
Someone needs to ask his care-giver to review his medication dosages as well as asking the gas company to come around to check for a slow leak. In the meantime keep your windows open and lay off the Twinkies.
Take the time to go back to the Brain Trust who wrote this "Linn Effectively Admits To Misleading Investors And Announces Key Accounting Change" and thank him for helping to bring the price down so we could buy more and (hopefully) he remained short like Nerdy claimed he was. The SEC ought to investigate jerks like this guy and his cabal of idiotas
