Thanks for posting this. Seems like a number of actions being taken in regards to C7. I saw an article about batteries? as well. And there is IP involved. The article seems to "recommend" SPWR as well? The translation is difficult.
9.50 is the bottom, 95% sure of that. I was wrong on WPRT when it plummetted from 22, I admit that. But this co much closer to profitibility.
tata motors deal only increases the number of trucks, decreases their price, decreases price of conversion, increases number of stations.
Stocks do tend to return to where they started, and this Gazprom deal may be huge. If it is as big as the China deal, we may be looking at doubling revenues in 2014, easily.
I have not seen what makes the HLF products actually work. What are the active ingredients? And have there been double-blind experiments done on them?
Actually, I think the buyback is what is holding this stock from dropping like a brick. It is strangely steady in the face of crazy bad news. Once the buyback is over, the stock may drop like a brick.
A normal company will not buy out this type of company. Post will not buy this company. Must merge with another like structured co. NUS is perfect for merge, but HLF will have to get much cheaper before that is considered.
He probably can't read the training manual. Word will get around that this must be done very carefully, most likely will lose money by distributing for HLF.
E-cigarettes. growing. now advertising that "friends don't let friends smoke." All over the radio.
Government - cigs being banned left and right, newest proposition in GB is no cigs in cars with kids.
yes i know PM has some small stake in e-cigarettes, but will lose huge profits to them as there will likely be a sea change in nicotine delivery.
down to 50, PM stock price, I believe.
Can someone explain this? Thanks.
This stock was weirdly trading in a very very narrow range, as if someone was holding the stock up from falling. Now it may be breaking downward, finally, late Friday. as people prepare to go home.
Calderon was told he'd be a millionaire... read on....
Consumer and immigrant rights advocates from across the country traveled to Washington D.C. on Wednesday to call for a federal investigation into Herbalife International, Inc., a multi-level marketing company they claim is running an illegal pyramid scheme.
“This is not the American dream,” said 68 year-old Miguel Calderon, who claims he lost more than $22,000 within 18 months of investing in Herbalife in 2008.
A Waukegan resident originally from El Salvador, Calderon said he initially invested $100 to become an Herbalife independent distributor based on the company’s promises that he would make a profit.
But, although the retired laboratory technician was consistently unable to sell the various diet and protein shake powders, vitamins, drinks, snacks and energy supplements, Calderon claims he was told he could not return the unsold products and was pressured into purchasing more inventory, making it impossible for him to recover his losses.
“I was told I’d be a millionaire by the end of the year, but I was left with nothing” he said.
He was one of four Illinoisans to travel to D.C. on Wednesday, joining nearly 30 activists from across the country, including California, Florida and Massachusetts, to meet with their respective congressional delegates and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) in a call for a federal investigation into Herbalife’s business practices.
In addition to Edith Ramirez, chairwoman of the FTC, and U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL, 4), Calderon met with representatives from the offices of U.S. Reps. Jan Schakowsky (D-IL, 9) and Brad Schneider (D, IL-10), and U.S. Sen. #$%$ Durbin (D-IL).
“We need to make sure this doesn’t happen to more people like me, this is wrong,” Calderon said.
did you see my post of the bloomberg article? LULAC is talking with Edith Ramirez, director of FTC. And my post of the wiki entry on her? She will very very likely call for an investigation. If there is no pressure for her not to. Her profile fits it. It is the Obama Admin not Bush. Latino political support is crucial for both parties. She is almost certainly a Democrat and a liberal Democrat. She is a Latino from LA, where much of LULAC's beef is centered, where much of the HLF controversy is centered. She is a perfect candidate for starting an investigation, and Obama has been very very active in this realm, and very successful.
plus Gazprom deal. This should be back at 11.50 right now.
Council of Economic Advisers. My mistake. No dollar amount mentioned. Cramer specifically mentioned Clean Energy Fuels and Andrew Littlefair. The man said yes, but did not repeat the words Clean Energy of Littlefair and implied it was a group of nat gas transport people they were working with.
Edith Ramirez is the current chairwoman of the Federal Trade Commission, a post she assumed on March 4, 2013.
Prior to joining the Commission, Ramirez was a partner in the Los Angeles office of Quinn Emanuel Urquhart & Sullivan, LLP, where she handled a broad range of complex business litigation, including successfully representing clients in intellectual property, antitrust, unfair competition, and Lanham Act matters. She also has extensive appellate litigation experience.
From 1993-1996, Ramirez was an associate at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, LLP, in Los Angeles. She clerked for the Hon. Alfred T. Goodwin in the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit from 1992-1993.
Throughout her career, Ramirez has been active in a variety of professional and community activities. Most recently, she served as the Vice President on the Board of Commissioners for the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power, the nation’s largest municipal utility.
Ramirez graduated from Harvard Law School cum laude (1992), where she served as an editor of the Harvard Law Review, and holds an B.A. in History magna cum laude from Harvard University (1989).
Ramirez is a native of Southern California.
It was the Director for the Council of Economic Affairs. Cramer asked if they are working with Littlefair and the likes to implement natgas transport. The man said yes, they are, they are talking with them and looking for ways to speed up implementation.
