So let me get this straight....You have been bashing the company for days, you can't seem to get your facts straight.....AND you expect us to believe you? File 13 pal where your garbage belongs. FYI, have you friend go cry to Obama, he gives everyone free stuff for your vote.
Splitting stock is doubling the outstanding shares and halving the stock price. Zero sum ROOKIE
The desperate short speaks as the margin dept. warms up. Get ready shorty.
I see that tex once again put his foot in his BIG MOUTH and refuses to respond to explain his moronic statement.
You must not buy any large cap or blue chip companies because if not all, nearly ALL have buyback programs. You should just stop making a fool out of yourself.
" Issuing new stock? Can you elaborate on when each of these companies did this "
Well tex, still waiting for your response?
If a company's EARNING'S are growing a lot, WHY are they issuing new stock.......You do know that is dilutive to earnings when additional stock hits the street.
It is clear you are CLUELESS how anything works.
Who knows ginx, whackman was ridiculed by the entire industry because he went short 1 billion without hedging in the beginning. Whackman bankrupted an entire fund many years ago, so to answer your question...Who knows what this arrogant self indulged bozo is doing.
It's not smoke and mirrors tex, it's called Accounting. From the opposite point of view, If you dilute the shares it lowers earnings. It is how to calculate value. Seriously....Do you know anything? ROOKIE
Virtually EVERY single Big Cap company buys back their own stock. Every day, every post, clearly shows how ignorant you are of the markets. What a dummy. LOL
This is what REAL investors look at when buying or selling a stock. HLF is trading at 7.9x next years EPS of $7.03 or HALF of the S & P's PE of 15.8x. Truly undervalued. HLF has a low PEG of .44 compared to the S&P with a PEG of 1.4. Add in the extremely LOW FLOAT which is getting smaller as the company is buying back shares and you have a catalyst for upside potential.
Now those are REAL facts, not the garbage that shorts continue to post on a daily basis used to drive fear into longs. The street calls it FUD.
I commented wealthmaster, but my posts take hours to show up and some are deleted. I always get the same email from SA, your post was deleted because it dismissed someone else's idea. I ask you and everyone......WHAT is the purpose if you can't disagree and discuss? It seems anyone who disagrees with a LONG article can write and say anything.
" This must be definitely driving the shorts loony "
A lot of new shorts who have no clue about HLF entered their position based on the headline news and they can't figure out WHY the stock is not going down. Most of their comments have no facts or misinformation because they haven't done any DD. They will be trapped or are already trapped. Expect them to get a little more ugly and then disappear as they cover and run as we make our way back to $60 as earnings and Annual Shareholder meeting is a little over a week away. How many of these new shorts want to have their speculative short position going into earnings which come out a week from Monday? Should be an interesting and volatile week coming up.
Tex is losing his marbles and it's clear he is in a new founded desperation mode. tex's post:
" is now sobbing to his investors about losing money. John Hempton of Bronte Capital Management recent admitted that Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) stock has reacted ‘very badly’ thanks to recent regulatory news. John Hempton has been wallowing in self-pity. He reportedly feels humiliated by Ackman’s recent successes given that Hempton spent last year adamantly professing that the activist billionaire was wrong.
John Hempton was one of the first to loudly berate Ackman’s Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) short.
John Hempton noted the stock’s fall cost his fund a ‘few percent’ of its portfolio last month.
Hemptons actual single paragraph to shareholders which is followed up with comments about his other investments.
" A: We are significantly long in Herbalife Ltd. (NYSE:HLF) – and the stock reacted very badly to the news of a Federal Trade Commission inquiry into their business and the news this month of interest by the Department of Justice and the FBI in Manhattan. This cost us a few percent of the portfolio
That was ALL he said, not all the made up garbage that tex posted. This guy is nothing more than a sad pathetic LIAR living a pathetic life.
