Get set 4 another Siri bloodbath; gonna get to what the G.S. hired media flakes predicted=3.25= now, THAT was so easy!
Malone's foaming @ the mouth(imo) at this situation that enables him to load up on buyback shares(bought with SIRI'S NICKEL), and, 'course, gets him closer to running off the remaining retail straggler shareholders!
The S C A M just goes on and on!
Notice a "pattern", here/ Every day, starts out with a modest loss, + , THEN, drops like a rock!
They've gotten this down to a science, now, that's become predictable!
Should reach, or BREAK, 3.00 by month's end, and THEN the benevolent Malone will likely offer a "generous" 3.25, to any of the remaining retail shareholders!
This guy has a HUGE set, AND, has shown NO remorse or concern 'bout fleecing any and all out of every nickel he can get from them. A REAL piece of work!
All imo, but, like this hasn't already happened a few times with sari's shares?= deja vous, all over again!!
Well, honestly,with over 5 billion shares in existence, it's MUCH easier to mess around with a company like Siri, with such ploys as "naked shorting", etc!
Frankly, imo, Most of the irregular siri trading is handled by G.S(under contract) using their programmed trading device!
BUT, still remains that, again, imo, Malone's ultimate goal is to run off retail investors, and B the sole siri owner, before he lets share value perform according to its metrics(in other words, LEGALLY TRADED!!!
Has been, and continues to B one of the most conspicuous scams on the NAZ, BUT, $$ talks, and everyone else walks= Malone's strategy!
and, as stated, IT WILL B 3.25, in short order, for NO other reason that a few folks SAID so(and, of course, THAT'S where G.S. has been pd. to "program trade" it to!) JMO, BUT, c'mon man, = so transparent!!
Why? Because, those who R driving it down, pd. to release this forecast, trying to run off more retailers!
IMO, Malone is paying his G.S. lackies a tidy sum to drive S/V down,
radically, so as to, a) Run off as many remaining retail shareholders as possible, and b) so as to make his next "transparent buyout offer" as attractive as possible!
And, BTW, Pl. try to give a reason WHY U believe that this is not pure manipulation at its MOST extreme form, +, it continues to go on, as if it's happening 4 a legitimate reason!
majority of analysts STILL have targets in the 4.00-5.00 range, while s/v literally evaporates?
C'mon man= this is the most extreme hatchet job done in quite a while, and as usual, the SEC turns away= they must B promised jobs @ G.S.!
How STUPID is THAT 4 a reason," Has a bad recepetion, so we downgrade"!
Wonder what Malone pays these lackies to put up such transparent manipulative info?
But, THIS is the way SIRI shares have ALWAYS been messed with by the M+M's= the hedge funds' A T M!!
So, today, we'll AGAIN see S/V go down the toilet because=??
Because, a company is quite obviously using its program to run S/V down to a level that it's being pd to manipulate it to!
This is SOOOO transparent, yet, so fine with the sec, etc. Makes one wonder why there any regulations= might as well let companies tell specific investors that "we R going to take 25-50% of your equity and there's nothing U can do, 'cause WE are "lining the right peoples' pockets"
Wall st. has become the place NOT to B if looking to invest!!
Won't B long until Malone tries his next attempt to steal the rest of the retail shareholders' equity w/his next scam scheme!
Someone recently said, in THIS country, "When a young man steals a bike, he's convicted and, goes to prison, BUT, when a Wall ST Hedge Fund, and/or CEO robs folks of THEIR equity, they get a mere nod, OR, sometimes a "pat on the back 4 a well done job"
Siri has been, +, continues to B the poster child 4 this type of transparent manipulated and transparently dishonest trading practices(imo)!!
Let's see; sub #'s higher + higher, most metrics met and, still, in the face of previous press, upgrades, and, a 5 yr connected car contract w/ Acura + Honda, S/V evaporates!
Of course the overall mkt has slid, BUT, as usual, when the mkt slides, SIRI S/V drops 2-3 times as much on a daily basis.
The street ratings says, "Siri has been sliding, +, is not being well received, SOOOO, we R downgrading it. Ever heard such an illogical reason?
No-one wants to , yet again, address the "elephant in the room", the pure fact that this stock continues to B the M O S T manipulated trading device on the NAZ.
THIS, time it's very transparent that Malone (again,imo) is really pushing his G.S. lackies to drag it down quick and big time so that he can make another ridiculous 3.5-3,68 "buy-out offer" to the remaining retail shareholders!
C'mon man= tried this bull once already and it fell thru; for once, quit nickel and diming retail holders and stop trying to rob them of their equity= like U REALLY need the $$('course, THIS is likely how U acquired most of it anyhow)
So, we'll now see yet another unfounded, inexplicable S/V drop, evaporation, is more apt, down to the 3-3.25 range so that "Bernie" Malone can act like he's giving the form away , by stealing the "left-over retailers' remains equity! Beyond transparent greed!
wonder who.s going to get the majority of those "buyback shares"? Liberty execs, Siri's execs, OR Howard Stern??
One thing for sure; they R NOT being bought back to help share value to increase!
Wish all of this "positive siri news" would stop; seems as if the more good press is released, the further down the stock drops, BUT, this is what happens when a G.S. programmer is driving S/V down= nothing trumps that!
Imo, Look 4 MORE of a s/v "haircut"! Not a great deal, BUT, enough 4 Malone to make his "next attempt" @ buying out the remaining retail shareholders @ an "insulting rate" easier, as he tried to do, unsuccessfully, the last time that S/V took this type of "mysterious downturn"
The "Snake in the grass" has, imo, engineered a good deal of siri's s/v evaporation, so as to make it easier 4 him to "clean out" the remaining reets
JMO, but, this SEEMS like deja vu, all over again!!!
O.K., Siri got mowed down today(and, is getting hammered in after hours) because it missed earnings= NOT, hit them
Well, they analysts' consensus is negative= NOT+ overall targets R 4.5 to 5.00 per share!
Well, the "connected car business" has failed!= NOT
Siri just signed a 5 yr deal w/ Honda + Acura!
Simple reasons 4 the stock, once again getting trashed is that(imo) Malone is using his G.S. lackies to program trade S/V way down, so as to run off many more retail shareholders, accumulating MORE shares thru "buyback" using Siri's nickel to do so!
Oh, + BTW, these shares being bought back? U Can bet that they R being distributed to Siri and Liberty execs., in the form
of of bonus stock options!
Malone, Mel K and Howard Stern will B the only ones REALLY making any $$ here(cept, of course those who SAY they still own their 5 ct shares)!
Malone pd. mel k 1/2 bil. to take a hike; H. Stern will have gotten 1.5 to 2 bil.$ of shareholder equity and Malone will rob the remaining t
reets' shares in any way he can!
This is , and has been, the way that siri has treated its staff + shareholders= nothing new here!!
This company, and its stock continues 2 B a dynamic moneymaker 4 everyone BUT its retail shareholders!
IMO, won't B long until Malone tries his "next scam" to relieve retail shareholders of their remaining equity!
He's likely using siri's nickel to buy back millions of shares, setting up the stage 4 him to try his next attempt to squeeze out the remaining siri retail shareholders!
Wonder how much G.S. is being paid to squash siri's s/v!
Whatever it is, they're giving Malone a good return 4 his pay!
So much 4 the "win-win"= 1/2 of that pay would have been too much.
Once more, the only siri winners remain, Mel K and Stern(and, of course, the Bandito, Malone)!!
They give away shareholders' equity @ every opportunity!
Enough, already, of this "irrational exuberance"=Let's C where the dust settles @ 4:00 today, AFTER the euphoria subsides and the contract's terms R released to the media!!!!
Great= NOW, all we need is for Pandora's "usage fee" to B increased, upwards of the current .11cts + this will eliminate a week competitor + surely add to Siri's sub-count= THIS decision will B released sometime tomorrow!!!
IF he stays, it'll surely B on a more limited schedule w/ a lesser salary.
IF he goes, Siri will come out ahead=$$$ He's not nearly to siri what he initially was= a "generation behind the times'!
Siri will save on his salary vs the sub loss(imo)!!
Siri's strong performance has been, and IS, Liberty's strongest asset, far and away! Lately, without Siri, Lmca's overall performance would be dismal, at best!
But, NOW Malone's trying a "new approach".
Prior he has kept siri's importance to LMCA a "secret" ! It's as if he"s had a Rolls Royce, BUT, kept it in the garage, and, covered up its performance and, relative importance to LMCA!
BUT, NOW, he's placing Siri, AND, its strong performance in a "stand-alone category" , for all to see! IMO, it's almost as if he's going to "advertise" what a desireable asset Liberty has!
So, this will eventually lead to a
1). "Spinoff", favorable to all parties, OR
2). Selling Siri in a bidding contest, once he markets it as such a valuable commodity! He THEN uses the "new capital" to expand his newly formed "cable conglomerate"! All supposition BUT, he's put Siri alone in its own category , imo, with a plan that he'll execute in the 1st 1/2 of 2016, and, it will actually finally unlock siri's real value to all of its shareholders!
