This is exactly why guns sales will continue strong for years to come, and why the libs and shorts still don't grasp it. Because they fail to understand the mind set of gun owners, and keep falling back on a one-off, six sigma event and using that as a data point to compare ALL sales comps against.
If you and artsbest don't like the culture here in the USA, take your pals PM at CNN, and the rest of the crew at MSNBC and move to North Korea and see how far your right to free speech will get you without a gun to back it up. I am sure all those folks in the camps over there would gladly trade places with you to live here in the "GOP Heartland" with all its rednecks. And while you are at it, why don't you go educate yourself, and start by reading about the 1938 German Gun Control Act, and what followed from the events of the state law.
And the good Senator Yee from the great state of Californication . . . what should we make of that . . . nope, nothing to see there . . . not one word from the aces at MSNBC about that though, NOT ONE WORD . . . why is that? Short the stock moron and see what happens.
It had one a few weeks ago, and all of that was taken, and we have moved higher from there. I take that as a good sign. I would not be surprised if STKL is at $20 by the end of the year.
And that is on the heels of the down grade last week. I have this for a longer term investment, and I think it is just getting going. This is still a thinly traded company that few even know about, even by those that follow the natural/organic space.
That is like 40% of the float!!!!! This is crazy . . . i guess at some point they will be right, but not until a Repub is back in the WH, so they will have a long wait, since it looks like Billary will be the next prez.
That is an under statement . . . . I frankly did not even understand the point of this clown's rant . . . . he must be short the stock along with his pal Harvey W.
It's called desperation on the part of MB and his ilk . . . even with all his money, he could not crack the "paper tiger" called the NRA.
And your point of posting this is what exactly, especially since you no longer own any shares? I certainly don't hang out on stock boards that I don't own . . . seems like a pretty strange thing to do, but thanks for concern for the well being of all the longs of TQNT.
I use to work at what is now ATK . . . they are a different breed of managemnent . . . I doubt any of the people you mention above would be kept.
Fully aware of it . . . looking at the chart just now, I would say it has not worked out too well for them, as that was a number of years ago when all that was going on if my memory is correct.
I was reading tonight - on Bloomberg of all places - how the large short bet placed by Bill Ackman on Herbalife has - at least for the time being - blown up in his face.
I have copied and pasted below, the two most interesting paragraphs from that article "Bill Ackman's Hilariously Inept Crusade Against Herbalife" . . . this should be a wake-up call for all the shorts. On top of this, they need to keep in mind that BO is still large and in charge for the next few years, followed by Billary. While gun sales will not likley see a spike like they did after SH, guns are so deeply part of this country's history, they ain't going away . . . as much as some pompus, clueless Brit wants them to.
"But as an investment thesis, shorting Herbalife has been a horrible idea. Herbalife's stock has failed to cooperate with Ackman: It more than doubled in 2013, although it's been down this year. Plenty of other hedge-fund managers could have told him from experience that the prospect of future regulatory action is rarely a good catalyst when shorting a stock. The government might not act, even if the company is a fraud.
Undeterred, Ackman's firm, Pershing Square Capital Management, hired a small army of lobbyists and P.R. specialists to run a national campaign in hopes of making his prophecy come true. They in turn have enlisted people such as U.S. Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts and U.S. Representative Linda Sanchez of California, both Democrats, to send letters to regulators (without mentioning Ackman's role, of course) asking for investigations of Herbalife."
I have been telling my FA for months that either RGR was overvalued, or SWHC was grossly under valued, but reality was likely in between. We will wake up one morning — hopefully soon, because frankly, this BS is getting old — and TDK will have an offer on the table for SWHC. I think they will select it over RGR because SWHC sells to the civilian, LEO and armed forces. And given that TDK already sells to all three of these markets, it makes better strategic sense. You would think that SWHC would at lest fetch $25 a share.
This is his real job; that is obvious . . . he is a paid SHORT basher for a boiler room.
RSH . . . man, talk about junk . . . that turd has been circling the bowl for years, and is frankly irrelevant in today's world. A few years ago, when it was still garbage - but not as bad as today - management thought nothing of paying Lance FraudStrong and his team millions of dollars to race their bikes in the EU. I never really understood why management felt the need to spend like $10M (need to verify that number, but close) a year to sponsor a cycling team in a country where they have no presence?
So, when you say SWHC as a company is another matter . . . just wondering what you mean by that. If I am not mistaken, it may very well be the oldest American manufacturing company publically traded; could also be DuPont though? But few American companies are as iconic #$%$&W. Aside from their past security fence screw-up, this company is back to being laser focused and doing what they do best, making great guns for America citizens (a right no other country has); LE agencies and Military. I just hope ATK is smart enough to purchase them.
What about all of the naked shorts . . . . where were those lent from? At my last check a few weeks ago, we were at like 31% of the float short. How much of that is naked and all of MB's hedge fund pals trying to crush this iconic American manufacturing company?
My bad, as I started this thread, and yes to the real IIIorac, I am dyslexic . But to the point, your posts today seemed to have dried up compared to past days, when your postings seemed to be on auto drive, and finding all sorts of reasons to lecture us as to why SWHC numbers would wet the bed. I remain suspect that you are long.
