Market Manipulation 101 being committed by certain hedge funds in collusion with Pershing Square. If you don't think so you are a naïve ROOKIE. Rumors put out, " sources say ", articles out the rear end.....ALL to create fear and uncertainty for longs.
exorbitant premium? LMAO HLF is trading at 5.6x this years earnings. A market multiple of 16x would put us at $88. Your math skills continue to amaze me and defines how broken our education system is.
Very soon as the SEC is hot on the trail. IMO Stay tuned as the illegal " bear Raid " that took place in December - January time frame just prior to the massive January PUT expiration is being looked at. Stay tuned
The premium will be much higher. Shareholders must vote for it and the thresh hold is much higher because it is a Cayman based company where rules are different in that regard than in the US. A bidding war would ensue pushing the SP higher as shareholders say NO.
This is the same firm who is rumored to be looking at Avon as of last week. Looks like they may be looking at consolidating the industry for a huge windfall. I believe the FTC inquiry tripped up their plans and put them on hold. Once the FTC gaming is over, there are going to be some fireworks to the upside.
I hope the retail shorts are prepared as the manipulating Hedge funds and Ackman will crush you heading for the exit door.
Still having trouble with simple math sl1. Not surprising for you uneducated rednecksssss. When an investor has 100 shares and then that investor has 150 shares. He INCREASED his stake, how he/she did it is not really material. You clearly don't understand the derivative markets so you should just clam up BOY.
ANYONE who has to critique another posters spelling instead of engaging in an intellectual debate IS A FOOL. Congrats sl1.
You continue to make a fool out of yourself. I have sold shares along the way only to be ridiculed by some longs for not staying put forever. I have posted my thoughts about Johnson buying shares to show confidence in the company. I have also posted about WHY is Icahn staying so quiet. I have also expressed that if past or current Distributors are doing anything illegal, they need to be charged.
I suggest you do a little more research instead of coming here in the 7th inning and sticking your foot in your big fat mouth. Your ignorance is telling.
Don't you just love how the spelling bee champs on the board attack people and then make a fool out of themselves. If you are going to attack people for spelling instead of the meaning of the post, you better be perfect or get ready for the wrath that is coming.
sl1 is nothing more than a childish wannabe lemming.
It's easy to paint all you DRONES with the same brush because you all keep making the same stupid remarks. Every time ANYTHING comes out about HLF in the news......you all say the same thing, " it's no big deal ".
Johnson adds 192k shares to his portfolio......no big deal. HLF adds ex FTC commissioner to it's staff....no big deal. Stiritz adds shares....no big deal. I could #$%$ and on and on.......everything is always followed by, " No Big Deal " by you trolls.
Schooling you continues to be my Pleasure.
What you need to know sl1........HE ADDED SHARES....PERIOD. 1 + 2 equals 3 and 3 is MORE. I hate to make you look foolish with this simple arithmetic but you can't quite seem to grasp MATH. He has MORE shares and that is all that matters. Icahn built the majority of his shares through options so he could hide it until he got what he wanted. You CONTINUE to show how uneducated you are in the markets.
You have become emotional in your short bet and that will be your downfall. NO company ever gets the intense magnifying glass look like HLF is getting BECAUSE Ackman has a $1.2 billion dollar bet. I won't need luck, I don't invest based on luck, I invest based on the company and the players.
You continue to follow the guy who has the ego the size of the moon how has already busted one fund because of that arrogance and I will watch the billionaires on the other side.
It is YOU who will need luck and I hope you don't lose everything when and IF the big announcement comes and the stock jumps 300% and you lose a fortune because you followed a LIAR. You should protect yourself, that's my advice to you.
WHY does he bring it up sl1 if it's MIGHT......makes him look like the LIAR he is. Kind of like when he said Ramey was fired. Ackman is an arrogant narcissist who will say anything because he believes he is above everyone........but don't worry he has apologists and lemmings like you to get his back. Makes you look STUPID and dumb,
The TROLLS think everything is " NO BIG DEAL " .......unless Ackman goes to a church and it's a big deal when 30 people are in the church, 10 of those are media and his support crew and the rest are PAID critics, and they don't acknowledge the 300 outside protesting him.
Just goes to show you the level of brainwashing these IDIOTS get. Comical
That's all you have to do to get rid of the drive by wannabes, ask them a question and they move on because they are clueless.
What constitutes a pyramid scheme and describe what HLF is doing that is illegal or different than any other MLM.
My opinion is that you don't have a clue what you're talking about. We are used to that as we get you drive by posters who blow and then go all the time.
Ackman is only doing a service for his checkbook. Anyone who thinks differently is the real FOOL.
HLF has over 600 million in cash, they have another year and a half of earnings before debt is due. Estimated $500 million in free cash flow for 2015. Who doesn't think they will be able to refi in a year and a half. Where do you people get you silly talking points from.
