  • I assume you guys are college kids working as interns for the hedge fund shorts. My question is what do they pay you per hour to put out all these silly rants? Are you paid by the hour or per message? Also do they give you leeway to make up your own stories and be creative or do they give you "talking points". Do they have you work 5 or 6 stock's message boards at once or just one at a time? Are you promised a possible real job with the hedge fund upon graduation if you perform well? How many different names/handles do you post under so people think it is a different person? How often does the hedge fun recommend you change the handle? lots of question that a curious mind wants to know answers too.

  • What did they give for Q2 Non-GAAP EPS Guidance in the Conference Call?

  • I got to go to dinner, how long should I wait? Looking for 0.33 vs 0.31 last year.

    Then why is that idiot short seller saying "Will Crash On Lower Guidance" if they haven't even given guidance yet?

    SEC has to investigate this....

    Just curious. Does the hedge fund that you work for as an intern pay you minimum wage to put out these messages or do you get paid per message? Also how many different companies do they tell you to "talk down" at a time? Also is this full time for you or just a side job? Does the hedge fund give you your talking points or do they give you some leeway such that you can come up with your own sayings? Curious minds want to know how this works?

    PS how many different alias do they tell you to use to make it look like their are several different people saying the same thing? Also, how often does the hedge fund recommend you change your alias?

  • What did they give for Q4 non-GAAP EPS guidance on Conference Call? Also did they give a FY 2014 non-GAAP EPS guidance?

  • Great news. They just forecast 0.57-.58 non-GAAP EPS for Q4 up from 0.45 last year and well ahead of analyst estimates. Also they project "mid to high teens"EPS growth for long term implying EPS will grow to about 2.52 in 2014. Both forecasts are much higher than previous guidance. So EPS will be up 37% this year and another 15-20% next year and stock is selling at dirt cheap 10 P/E for next year's earnings. Also they are paying down debt at a furious rate. LTD was 715 mil at end of 2011, reduced to 688 at end of 2012 and now down to only 587 and will be about 550 by year end. They intend to continue to pay down the debt at a rapid rate. Great news across the board!

    You are lying, debt was reduced from 715 mil to 587 mil in just 18 months. Stop lying on these boards you have zero credibility

  • bu7542003 bu7542003 Nov 5, 2013 5:59 PM Flag

    At the end of 2014 debt will be DOWN to 420 million, not the 1 billion you claim. Stop putting out BS, you have zero credibility.

  • bu7542003 bu7542003 Nov 5, 2013 6:02 PM Flag

    Liabilities are decreasing rapidly. Stop lying and posting under 5 different names. Quality of earnings? Non-GAAP EPS will be up 37% this year. Cash Flow is so explosive they have paid down 170 million in debt in just 18 months.

    Why do you keep lying ans saying 1 billion in debt when it is down to 587 million. You have zero credibility. Insiders own more than 150 million in stock or 11.6% of all stock outstanding. No one is going to believe anything you say, better change your alias again.

    How much did they lose and who was right before the close buying like crazy to ensure the shorts lost everything?

  • bu7542003 by bu7542003 Nov 19, 2013 12:10 PM Flag

    I did some research on T12 (Request for More Information) Halts. There were 15 of them in 2011 on reverse merger China stocks. For 12 of them the stocks NEVER resumed trading, the companies NEVER issued a statement. Nothing, total silence. Months later the companies were quietly delisted. Later the SEC investigated for Fraud and the investigations were never resolved one way of another. The companies just died a quiet death. In the other 3 cases, trading resumed but months later and the companies faded into penny stock oblivion and were ultimately delisted. Even in these cases, the Companies NEVER issued a statement. Bottom line is we are screwed. We have been taken. It is only less than 0.1% of my portfolio but so a negligible loss but I am still #$%$. The reason I got taken was I assumed if this company didn't go down with the rest in 2011, it must be legit. I was wrong. The only saving grace is if the stock never opens again which is likely, the shorts also can't cover their shorts so they lose everything too. The only winners are the company execs who used the fraud to pump and dump the stock repeatedly over the years (via friends so it doesn't show up as insider trading) to make a forturne. Even worse, these people always get away with it. No one from the 15 that went down in 2011 were prosecuted. Even worse for us is we can't take the tax loss because we will never be able to sell. However, I plan to take it anyway. Sorry to bring the bad news but we have been had.

    Sorry Makemy, those 8 were not china reverse merger stocks like LLEN. They were regular American companies that had agreed to be taken over and it was announced in a press release MONTHs BEFORE and then the stock continued to trade right up until the day before they were taken over and NASDAQ halted trading because the stock would no longer exist the next day.

    I hope you are right calm but I am 99% certain you are wrong. It is just a case that the LLEN crooks were better at it and covered their tracks better. We have been had. I was in denial yesterday, angry today and acceptance and moving on tomorrow. I feel bad for people who will keep checking back on the ticker and this board hoping and looking for news. There will be none. We will never hear anything from the company nor the Nasdaq for months and only then it will be a 1 sentence press release from the Nasdaq saying they have delisted the company. Sorry it sucks but we got had.

    Sorry Makemy, ALL of these companies are technically American companies but with operations in China. No one will be held accountable. I looked into the other 15 that went down in 2011 and followed up on them this morning. Zero arrests. They will all get away with it and yes I am really angry too. The SEC announced "investigations" into several of them months after the halt, but like with most SEC investigations, the last thing you ever hear is the announcement of the investigation and there is never any follow-up.
