    If they are "loading the truck" and failing to make proper disclosure under SEC regulations, they could go to prison. Maybe you should change you identity to "annett_small_brain"?

  • Yup, the GOP oil loyalists are going to cram through the Keystone and create lots of revenue for Cheyney's alma mater. And of course, also enrich their largest campaign donors, the Koch Bros., by an estimated $100,000,000,000. Now that will buy some more serious campaign TV ads in 2016. Then they can control all 3 branches of government and start working on The Supreme Court, next and last.

    This is capitalism at its best and finest. Anything and everything is for sale here in the good old USA!

    Berko news is non event

    Maybe the Bloomberg report is right. Bloomberg isn't like Rupert Murdoch's media circus of slants and misdirections. Remember that dark pool trading kept news of Icahn's entry a secret for months until it eventually filtered out. Gave inside "players" a huge trading edge, didn't it?

  • Yummy opportunity to snap up some really cheap shares and recoup the last reverse split impact. The numbers in the next annual report will surprise a lot of the lunatic bashers.

    This is FUN for the patient ones amongst us. You lose nothing unless you sell; "losses" on paper are not losses in reality. I am NOT selling.

    Happy, happy!

    April 14th? That's exactly what I said discredited your earlier fake diatribe. The shorting took place during IR's DUMPING of shares throughout the Spring and early summer. What was ruled on was preliminary, not eventually conclusive as I believe will come out in later evaluation by the court.

    Newlead only hurts their recovery during an addition share issuance dilution if another reverse split takes place... which is highly unlikely under any circumstance.

    IR is going to get KILLED and settle HUGE in the final analysis, IMO. Nobody wants to spend a decade in a Federal pen with a lousy wine list

    Sorry you bought NEWL at the wrong time. You can thank Ironridge for your losses. Maybe you should consider buying some at devalued S/P's before it goes way up?

    Some Optomistic Math on NEWL

    Please cite one court case that IR has won, other than where the judge said his court had no jurisdiction. I haven't lost a dime on NEWL since I have yet to sell one share, and why would you care, anyway?

    Detearing is a moron. Please don't confuse me with that idiot!

    NEWL will be uplisted to either Pink or OTCQB and it's S/P will take a huge leap upward when that happens.

    Don't waste your time checking back in a month. This will take time to play out. Come back in a year and see how the real men play hardball in investing.

    Hi, Christine. I am fine. Thanks for asking. How's your little man in the boat, today? Lonely?

    There is a HUGE difference between a judge denying a motion for a restraining order based on motions filed in brief vs. a decision based on cross-examination, discovery and which covers a crime only partially revealed at the time of filing. We all know it is very difficult to pin down short trading activities, especially when the presumed rogue trader maintains an apparent labyrinth of business locations, names and identities in the same Los Angeles neighborhood. Many of us who performed actual due diligence on this matter, a group that does NOT include mental midgets like you, observed the likely more corroborative than coincidental relevance of several similar suits being filed by IR victims around the same timeline as Newlead's actions and the fact that many of the top players at Ironridge ran for the hills when the legal challenges gathered steam.

    JMHO, but this settlement still looms large. Very large.

    I am really not trying to humiliate you, but you are making that very difficult. ALL NEWL shares are held by longs. There are no short sales permissible for grey market listed equities. I do not realistically see a S/P at $650. You made a poor investment decision to buy at the time you did. Quit blaming everyone else for your own poor choices. If this goes sub-penny or BK, I will have made equally bad decisions, as well. The difference is that I will take a loss and move on if this occurs, unlike you who berate and degrade anyone with skin still in the game.

    I am not selling, and I likely will buy a lot more if tax loss selling further degrades the S/P. This is a high-risk/high-reward investment move that should not be recommended for any but the hardiest of traders.

    And speaking of ridiculous trolls...

    There is no sell-off because holders know this can explode upwards with a relisting. The reverse splits were only done to try and preserve shareholder value and the NASDAQ listing that was jeopardized when Ironridge defecated on NEWL with its death spiral financing gambit. I am still expecting a settlement from this worth as much as $3/share.

    Wherever did you come up with that interpretation of what I said?

    1. The 80% of ownership in the warrants is under siege in the courts. It could be 0% ownership, depending on the court's decision. There is a difference between 100% of "the sweep" vs. 80% of the ongoing equity in the GSE's. If the warrants are voided, 100% of "the sweep" is not excessive, IMO.

    2. The settlement, subject to approvals, wipes out the claims pre-conservatorship for $170M. This only leaves post-conservatorship investment cogent as litigation. A huge argument could be made that "investors" buying into FnF for pennies have gotten their rewards based on current S/P.

    3. A huge chunk of the proceeds that roll up in "the sweep" are simply settlements with TBTF banks that were litigated BY THE U.S. GOVERNMENT, not by any of the hedge funds that now aspire to those proceeds despite having no shares at the time of the claims AND no stake in the legal challenges mounted by the U.S. Department of Justice at taxpayer expense.

    I think that both GSE's will be wound down by the new Congress after mid-terms and the January swearing-in. Then a lot of this jibberish becomes academic and of interest to historians, only. I am not saying that dismantling the GSE's is a good thing. I am only saying I think it is a fait accompli as gutting FnF is near the top of the GOP political agenda.

  • big.yank big.yank Oct 26, 2014 7:38 AM Flag

    You guys are missing the huge point in the $170M settlement. FnF misled investors regarding the GSE's precarious financial condition and portfolio risk. This settlement confirms the core premise of the conservatorship. Plus, it pegs a value to shareholder losses prior to the bailout in 2008. This settlement just reduced all the hedge fund lawsuits to chopped liver.
