longs - take a deep breath and repeat after me: a couple of points down is normal. Profit-taking is healthy.a couple of points down is normal. Profit-taking is healthy.
Yeah right. This isn't play money - it's your bank account and it's going down the drain....
With almost 5 days above $73 coming up it looks like Stiritz and Soros may be afraid Icahn will flush his position in HLF according to his contract terms with HLF. Those two won't wait to be made patsies by Icahn - they're billionaires because they make their own decisions - are they the ones dumping shares today?
Will this be Day 4 that HLF has closed above $73 (in the box)? After 5 Days closing above $73 Carl Icahn is free to sell all of his shares. Are the longs on this board starting to consider the potential of that move and dumping their shares?
Flutie - you have been a paid pumper on this board from day 1. All of your trades are just make-believe and you blow smoke with all your posts. However, from my count you have done very well - the way I add it up: 55247 messages on this board at 5 cent a message = $2762.35 - Call Carl to get your check.
Flutie - the only money you make these days is the 5 cents for each post on this message board that Icahn's media group pays you for. You're blowing smoke and polluting this board.
Looks like Seeking Alpha's Quoth the Raven's been thinking the same thing as most of us on this board - Why would Icahn hold this stock with all the risk to his 200% profit on the line?
I think I just saw Icahn standing in the line at the TD Ameritrade office in Manhattan wearing a disguise asking if he could buy a couple thousand PUTs on HLF..
I see Flutie is trying to bate people to respond to his posts. The terms of his contract with Icahn must be that he only gets paid a nickel for each of his posts ONLY if someone responds to it. He's been trying real hard to get some responses - this month's rent for his cardboard box on skidrow must be coming due soon.
The only idiots talking about Icahn are the ones hoping Icahn won't sell if HLF closes above $73 for 5 days. Icahn can't book a profit if he doesn't sell stock every once in a while. He'll probably move his funds over to more profitable ventures.
That would really cause Icahn to blow a fuse if HLF can't stay above $73 for 5 days. If it looks like HLF will close below $73 Icahn will probably be pushing Ackman out of the way to so he can get his order to buy puts in before Ackman can add more.
Looks like you've picked a good entry point based upon today's action. Was your decision to buy the puts partially based upon Icahn being able to sell his holding if the price of H:F stays above $73 for 5 days?
It probably cost HLF too much for that ruling based upon what will happen when the audit comes out.
P.S. That flutie sure is pathetic, isn't he? Always trying to horn in on someone's honest analysis of HLF.
What dream was that? the same one where you were elected president of the Interplanetary Space Council? based on my calculations you've made 60 cents today - about 5 cents for every post on the board. Call Carl for your check.
Got you again!
And by the way - you're not banking ANYTHING unless you're selling your shares. So you're either selling shares and BANKing your profits or your just spouting off your typical B.S., which is it?
P.S. One of these days you ought to actually start a position in this stock rather than being just a paid pumper!
Such a mean reply flutie! Judging by your response you must be the one dumping the shares.... Oh and by the way, who's the puppetmaster now? got ya!
Which one of you longs is selling? Is it you Flutie? Maybe it's you tradingjunk? Come on tell the truth and cut it out! I need this stock to be as high as possible at the end of it's 5 days (+a couple) in the box (above $73) , so Carl and I can get the best price when we start selling shares.
