See News: MBIA Wins Ruling on Loan Buybacks in Bank of America Lawsuit or look up the case:
MBIA Insurance Corp. v. Countrywide Home Loans Inc., 602825-2008, New York State Supreme Court, New York County (Manhattan).
Volume fizzled...by end of this quarter this could be sub-5. Tiger and many of the others will have already made 50-90% on their money as passive investors, and will probably have dumped by then is my guess.
those who are full-of-da-bull simply won't be able to say they haven't been warned.
liability for mobile advertisers appears to be growing: maybe that's why the shares of groupon have cooled in price, and especially in volume -- the model appears to be crumbling on several fronts...if this is not the case please provide evidence to support that this is not happening.
it seems this could portend the potential for a slew of deceptive practices and false advertising claims against Groupon smaller advertisers that don't or can't afford to take the necessary precautions to prevent such claims -- perhaps this will affect Groupon's bottom line somewhat? (rhetorical question)
look at the spamming spinning out of control -- and Yahoo is permitting it...sad.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) reports that
“Advertisers should think twice about placing promotional messages on mobile and social media platforms like Twitter if those ads require disclosures or disclaimers to avoid being deceptive or unfair, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission said on Tuesday…”
“…’Advertisers should make sure their disclosures are clear and conspicuous on all devices and platforms that consumers may use to view their ads," the FTC's Lesley Fair said in a blog post accompanying the 53-page report’…”
look up the news/report at the FTC or Reuters, etc.
This is all wasted breath here -- the shares are obviously being supported which most likely won't change until the SEC follows through with a formal or broader investigation or something comes via the FTC in connection with investigation of the 140+ consumer complaints filed during the 10 month period from July '11 to May '12.
This Groupon board on Yahoo is useless.
It is filled with little else other than SPAMs that market #$%$ and useless alleged "reports" about Groupon.
Most of the posts consist of nothing but accolades supporting the alleged "reports" made available for sale or to capture your personal or other identifying information -- or worse, to plant malware on your system.
Yahoo management should not permit the hyper-spamming they are allowing on this board -- it reflects badly on Yahoo -- and certainly doesn't help Groupon.
Move over Groupon, there's another CEO search to compete for that "talent" LOL
In the October 4, 2012 letter from the SEC to Groupon CFO Jason Child re the agency's investigation into the 2011 10K filed by the company, the SEC warned that further scrutiny may take place in the future, despite the agency’s initial findings: "Dear Mr. Child:
We have completed our review of your filings. We remind you that our comments or changes to disclosure in response to our comments do not foreclose the Commission from taking any action with respect to the company or the filings and the company may not assert staff comments as a defense in any proceeding initiated by the Commission or any person under the federal securities laws of the United States. We urge all persons who are responsible for the accuracy and adequacy of the disclosure in the filings to be certain that the filings include the information the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and all applicable rules require."
In view of the above, do you think the SEC is closely scrutinizing the co's 2012 10K and related activity?
yea, yea, yea, sure: "they don't want to be"...
well, not to worry, these accouting challenged wannabes could never even begin to aspire to become anything even remotely close.
How's the cash holdin out for GRPN?
Oh, did you hear the part about how their search for a new CEO is a "long term" thing, they're in no rush -- hope they have a lot of patience because as everyone else knows, folks have already been turning the job -- and especially Lefkofsky and those funny numbers books -- down.
