Pershing Square's second-worst investment ever was J.C. Penney, which declined 41 percent, according to the presentation. Citigroup was No. 3, with a loss of 31 percent. Pershing Square lost money in Herbalife and two other positions—J.C. Penney long and a short on the Hong Kong dollar versus U.S. dollar

Big boys were dumping today, they were not buying. This has a ways to go down before any up tick. II think it trades between $23 & $27 for the next 3 to 6 months before any movement up or down. No reason to buy, at these high levels.
And you moron shorts call this a pyramid scheme ? Really? Lol... See you at $100
Conn's plunges after cutting profit forecasts for this year and next
Shares of Conn's (CONN), a retailer of electronics, appliances, furniture and other home goods that also provides consumer credit to support purchases, are plunging after the company issued weaker than expect fourth quarter earnings guidance and lowered its fiscal 2014 and 2015 profit forecasts. WHAT'S NEW: This morning, Conn's forecast fourth quarter adjusted EPS of 75c-80c, far below expectations of 93c. The company also lowered its FY14 adjusted EPS view to $2.59-$2.64 from $2.75-$2.80 and cut its FY15 EPS outlook to $3.40-$3.70 from $3.80-$4.00. FY14 and FY15 consensus estimates were $2.77 and $3.96, respectively. The company said, “Credit segment performance did not keep pace and delinquency and charge-offs rose in December and January. Sales driven portfolio growth combined with seasonal portfolio increases placed pressure on our collections operation and execution deteriorated. Sustained below-normal temperatures and the related higher energy costs in some of our markets also temporarily impacted our consumer’s income available for debt service." ANALYST REACTION: This morning, research firm Oppenheimer downgraded the stock to Perform from Outperform following the company's negative Q4 pre-announcment and lowered guidance. Another firm, Stephens, downgraded Conn's to Equal Weight from Overweight. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Conn's plunged $18.36, or about 33%, to $37.44 on nearly thirteen times its average daily trading volume. Despite today's slide, the stock has gained about 22% over the past twelve months. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other retailers competing with Conn’s include Rent-A-Center (RCII) and Aaron's (AAN).
He's lost over 500 million on a 1 billion bet, can we say moron? ... LOL... Hay shorts hang in there don't cover Intel HLF hits $90, that way we can see HLF go over $100..
So how much did you lose smart#$%$? Told you this morning this company is on the verge of bankruptcy. Just look at their cash flow( negative $147 million) dept of $422 million & you buy into this #$%$? Moron..
Let me provide some details on the specifics. First, the coupon on this debt is only 2%, not much different than our dividend. And since we are using the net proceeds to buy back stock, we are saving on the dividend. For example, a 2% coupon on $1.15 billion debt deal is $23 million annually in cost.
With the repurchases expected from the net proceeds of this deal, we will save approximately $17 million annually in dividend. So on a net cash basis, it is costing the company approximately $6 million annually to borrow $1.15 billion, an economically strong deal for the company and its shareholders.
Second, the company effectively repurchased 9.9 million shares through the prepaid forward as part of this debt transaction. The economics of this deal pass through to the company immediately even though the shares will not be delivered until the end of the contract. To be clear, for accounting purposes and for dividend purposes, these shares are out of our share base as of February 7.
The additional approximately $300 million in net proceeds is expected to be used to buy back stock over the next 3 months.
Depending on the share price, we expect to repurchase a total of 14 million to 14.5 million shares through the prepaid forward in our outright buybacks as a result of this transaction.
Baird analyst Ben Kallo reiterated an Outperform rating and raised his price target on Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA) from $215 to $245 following Q4 results that beat on the top and bottom lines.
"Importantly, TSLA issued 2014 delivery guidance of 35k Model S' which bested our expectation of 29k cars. TSLA also met its margin target and expects to expand margin throughout 2014 while increasing production to 1,000 cars per week by year end," Kallo said. "With catalyst ahead, we think the stock will continue to move higher."
The new price target is based on 34x our 2016E non-GAAP EPS of $7.21 which includes sales of ~48,000 Model S and ~38,000 Model X vehicles (increased from 40,000 and 36,000, respectively).
The firm raised FY 2014 EPS from $1.18 to $1.45 and FY 2015 EPS from $3.32 to $3.91.
Since then HLKF has done over $120 billion in revenue. Nice try, try again loser.
Does $6 Billion in revenue, & you #$%$ call it a "pyramid scheme? Really? What a bunch of morons. Just like Bill Ackerman who has lost 1/2 Billion on his stupide bet, you too will be taken to the cleaners. You want to know what is a "pyramid scheme? Social security, now that is a true "pyramid scheme. Tell that to Communist Edward Markey, what a loser. See you morons at $90 plus in the next 3 months..
