The shorts’ tactics, however, extend well beyond the trading room. As the nonprofit advocacy group Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) lays out in a recent white paper, shorts are active in anonymously feeding false and misleading information about their target companies to friendly analysts and bloggers while using social media to attack the intelligence and motives of those who view the company favorably.
you are the old basher, when are you going the hell out of here
Cramer said to Hold Rite Aid because their Profit Margin was only 1.96%
But Profit Margin at Walgreens -1.25%
He Claimed that Rite Aid's profit margins was too low compared to the rest of the same industry!
Finally a Glowing Report on Rite Aid. You can take it to the Bank!
And Shorts I have something for you to eat, a dead bug.
I studied Obama Care and I know Wall Street has it wrong about lower reimbursements for Generics. Since Insurance companies have the option of (What is a Generic?).
I realized that in order to increase profits that certain pharmaceuticals that are sold as Generic are not recognized as Generic. That means that these medications are called "Brand" and the customer pays extra. While Rite Aid sells them as Brand and fills them as generic. That is why Obama Care is a mess!
Not true, margins will increase if you study Obama care and the prescription plans carefully Wall Street has it wrong. Many of the drugs that are generic are in fact not tiered as generic class 1 but as brand class 3. That is how Insurance companies lower reimbursements and pass the drug costs on to the insured. Do your homework before you post nonsense.
news above was all cut and paste.
I can not post it yahoo is taking the news release down.
Appears one of Cramer buddy at the street is about to be hit legal.
People on here were being paid to post negative to drop stock prices.
If I say the guys name yahoo will take my post down.
By the end of last week, the total number of borrowed shares was reported to be about 8.5 million, or about 30 percent of the shares not held by company executives or entities they control. That level of short interest is unusual. It’s also suspicious — so much so that at one point this summer, shareholders could earn a 34 percent return by lending their stock to the shorts just for one month.
And therein lies an eye-opening tale of how hedge funds and their Wall Street allies stifle innovation and damage the economy in their relentless pursuit of short-term trading profits.
Wall Street wise guys to use sleazy tactics to manipulate share prices for short-term profit, I’m siding with the companies. Maybe it’s time for the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission to be siding with them as well.
What I do know is that given the choice between allowing innovative companies to develop promising products that could save thousands of lives, or allowing Wall Street wise guys to use sleazy tactics to manipulate share prices for short-term profit, I’m siding with the companies.
Maybe it’s time for the Justice Department and the Securities and Exchange Commission to be siding with them as well.
