" While litigation is still a distinct possibility, the appearance of a potential resolution should lift shares higher, Swartz said. "
Because I doesn't fit the narrative. Wade through all the posts, everything is about trying to put your own bent on the FTC news or lack of news. The real NEWS here is that earnings were fantastic and guidance for the year was raised. Funny, shorts said earnings would crater, where are they now?
It was AH's tex, anyone who puts anything into AH's trading is a certifiable ROOKIE. Stock up 9% today, you LOST 9% in addition to already being severely underwater. Your desperation is worrisome.
Appreciate the honestly sl1, I just happen to think you are wrong. HLF has done a pretty good job of covering their bases in legal terms when releasing info. There is no way they give this ROSY guidance if THEY KNOW the hammer is coming down. HUGE legal problems if they did. FYI, silence about Ackman should be telling. FYI, only Johnson seemed to sound off base....to me.
I have banked and banked on HLF trades tex, all posted in real time. I bought 1000 at $58 a few days ago for an earnings trade, I posted yesterday that they were for sale at $62 AH's. They filled, early but it was still a $4k gain. COUNTLESS times I have done this outside my core position. You KNOW this.
I didn't read that in Des's tone, only in Johnson's. Injunctive relief can mean ANYTHING and you know it. I suppose from a shorts point of view you are hoping for worst case scenario. Seems their Guidance would have suggested what you are thinking or maybe they shouldn't have given future guidance if that was in the cards. I don't think you are thinking this through.
sl1, not sure what you are referring to? Earnings were great, guidance was good. Still scratching my head on the FTC stuff, I have to hand it to shorts, although it's not helping. Twisting what an FTC spokeman said in generalities to make it sound like he was talking about HLF was good. Johnsons demeanor in the CC has me most baffle. Don't know what the back story on that is, could be anything. Des seemed fine.
If you noticed, they filed an S-1 shelf registration for 3.7 Million shares. There is NO plans to sell or they can choose to never sell any shares. Here is the beauty of it and I think the intent, if the stock rages higher in a short squeeze, this shelf is already registered and they can go into the market at anytime, So if the stock races higher HLF can sell some shares at a high price and capitalize using it to pay down some debt. Brilliant
VRX loss $3500.....HLF gains $320K. Maybe you should just stop posting tex, your ignorance is telling.
Yes sooner or later Icahn will sell.....My point was you have claimed he is selling OVER a dozen times now.
