Is it not obvious? Dell and his group announce earnings early knowing they will be bad in hopes that the price drops quickly so they can get buyout done. Suckers are those who sell now and complain they were duped in a year when numbers are up big
So you know one reason these shorts post neg. posts with catchy titles and pointless content is because they are using longs who respond to boost their title message to the top. They say "pump this POS!" and then write garbage. Longs respond and say how wrong they are and bam their massage moves to the top where the title is seen by everyone unlike the response that has to be clicked on. Stop responding to their posts!!!!!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Legal expenses are a short term cost. Consider American Express. They at one point had their stock clobbered due to huge amounts of olive oil not being in tanks ( I think it was olive oil) at a company they represented. It was huge fraud and since they were connected the stock got knocked so far down it was ridiculous. In walks a man named Warren and decides it was a one time event (like this law suit against the execs at STSI) and he bought up a ton of the stock. I think you know how that turned out. You can't factor one time events into the stock price long term. Short term fine, but in a year or two those costs are gone while the top line number keeps growing.
It's people buying for the 3% div. tomorrow it will go down about 3% as it will be ex div.
The next big up move. With as much upward movement as we have seen lately I would expect this to fall off some but overall it should slow before complete reversal.
There is no way the movement over the past few weeks or even days is a random event. The insiders have clearly let word leak of some event. Wish I was in the know but either way enjoying the ride up. Wish I had the courage to buy more when it started the move but too heavily invested already!:)
It is only a matter of time until this company goes private. With it's div. and cash flow I am betting it happens in the next few months at which time it will be a big pop to the price. The main risk I see is that the shorts bring it down so far that it goes private at around the price it is at today. I believe it goes much higher though.
Probably not but he was a big fan of Johnson and he was dead wrong there so we will see how wrong he is with HLF as well. Guessing about equally as wrong:)
So what will happen now? I personally don't worry about the top line miss as several orders got pushed into the next quarter. Also, they are changing their product mix whose benefits show up in the bottom line! They blew away the estimates. This is why Icahn wanted in. Just think if those orders that were pushed into the next quarter would have made it into this quarter? A few days on the calendar and they would have beat top and bottom numbers! Time will tell but if they bring it down enough today I will have to add more to my holdings. Glta!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
What a joke. I can't believe how the shorts have scared enough out of this stock to get it so cheap! They have earned their pay check from those who pay them to bring the stock down. Bravo for a job well done!
Do they not see that with a PE of 850plus this stock will be overvalued no matter how their earnings grow over the next few years? I don't short stocks, but if I did holy cow this thing is eventually due for a disaster! We will see but man it makes me wonder what is in store for the rest of the market when people can be so irrational.
