to me it is important that other retail longs do not get sucked into the lies by some people on this board. -bucko
14 cent spread between the bid and the ask. i am not a financial wizard or guru but does this spread at times with hlf mean the float is drying up? i have noticed that scottrade no longer gives a negative view on hlf but i wonder if there are restrictions/limits to short hlf shares. jmho-bucko
funny. one of my employees just read my post and asked me who jackie gleason was. i said, THE HONEYMOONERS-RALPH !!! he is 30 yrs. old and never heard of him. same guy was with me in the poconos recently and we were in the basement of a house with a water problem and there was all these band photos hanging there. here, the guy was at one time, the lead guitarist for CHUBBY CHECKER!!! again, my employee never heard of him. GOSH, I'M OLD!!!-bucko
wait a second. ackman goes on tv and says he is short hlf to the tune of 1 billion dollars and that hlf pps will go to zero as he is sure hlf is a pyramid scheme. the pps drops from einhorn tactis first from the 70's and when ackman attacks the pps goes to mid 20's. none of what ackman said was true. NO OF IT!!! He wiped out faithful retail hlf longs with his bull and then says the audacity to state his short publicly. now who's fault is that??? hlf board is protecting their shareholders and imo in the end, it is pershing sq. that is going bk, NOT HLF!!!jmho-bucko
A retirement fund investing with pershing sq. Got to believe that those retirees that know of this are very upset. Jmho-bucko
Moekis and co. are mgt. Experts specializingnin mergers and acqusitions. Blmberg's ruhle just stated that hlf vs ackman is a battle and not a investment. That moelis is advising pershing clientele to withdraw money from pershing sq.
imo, ackman must report to his clientele pershing sq. Performance for the qtr. And the yr. I believe bill ackman will try to blame hlf and moelis for pershing sq. Problems.
Ackman imo, is in big trouble. Jmho-bucko
at worst a last resort drug. You think a dr. Is going to tell a cancer widow, i have good news and bad news. The bad news your husband just died and there was a drug named inclusig that would have helped him greatly and extended his life but the fda banned it. The widow asks, what is the good news. Dr. Says, well he did not die of a blood clot. -bucko
actually, today i bought back 30 contracts-feb. 90's so my shares are mine again with no chance of getting called away.-bucko
reaudit news not baked in. icahn ups his position to max 25% certainly not baked in. a lbo announcement, certainly not baked. in. ackman announces he is no longer short hlf. definite possibility. jmho-bucko
Imo, ackman buying shares to cover some of his short. Jmho-bucko
