Congrats to those who held on. I daytraded it a little back in the 2's, but having seen what happened with AFFY was not willing to hold it long-term.
Price regulation is inevitable. Democrats don't like rich people getting richer nor poor people being unable to get healthcare, and Republicans don't like large Medicare/Medicaid payouts unless it's to large-caps.
Ferrari is an #$%$, but that doesn't imply he's in panic mode. He just likes pushing people's buttons. I'd be surprised if he had any significant position on either side.
I've been deleted multiple times. If you deign to ask the author of a hit piece to support his thesis with facts, this is considered "bad faith" on your part. It's their sandbox and they can do what they want, but it puts them on the same credibility level as TV infomercials.
Stochastics are well below their highs for the year. HLF can go to 85 short term without signalling a sell.
Actually, the Barron's article said it's a "fair question" to ask whether the CDF and its donors are doing enough to make sure the contributions aren't considered illegal kickbacks.
During the time when Overstock was being unfairly bashed by a hedge fund, with WSJ reporters who were accused of being the fund's puppets writing one-sided hit pieces, people complained to the SEC. Someone posted on the OSTK board that he got to talk to someone from the SEC, who told him that if he didn't like the way the stock was bouncing around that maybe he shouldn't be in the stock market. If that is true - you never know with anonymous bboards - then some at the SEC don't seem to put a priority on large-cap stock manipulation. They do seem to be on top of small-time fraudulent stock promotions, though.
I think it's brilliant to short a company's stock and then start a competing company that will sell an equivalent product at a loss but still make money overall.
All they have to do is price it at 50% of Acthar, and they'll get more than 50% of the market.
