They will do anything to kill those calls. ANYTHING
This dude made a bad trade, and in typical wallstreet fashion, cant handle the heat. so he throws more money at the problem, and in typical wallstreet fashion who is used to making "some one else pay" for their mistakes...
The dude made a bad trade, live with it. Its like naked shorting. shorts don't like being wrong, so they naked short a stock to death.
You cant create long shares out of thin air, and drive up a stock with shares that don't exist anytime you feel like it.
Shorts are a breed unto themselves.
This dude is a snot nosed teary eyed coward. That preys upon good American Companies that employ many people.
Why doesn't he go after Apple, for low wages and all the suicides in China at the Ipad and iPHONE factories?
Why doesn't he go after Wallmart, for the lack of benefits, low wages. etc...etc....wall mart prays on poor Hispanics, and tells them if they work hard, maybe some day they will be a manager.
He is going after HLF for one reason only, his money. period. If he wants to take up a crusade, he should do it on his own time with his own money. Not making a bet upon the outcome.
His agenda is clear. Why didn't he fight HLF without betting $1B ?
if HE CARES TO MUCH ABOUT THE POOR MEXICANS?
He should volunteer at the Mexican border and walk them over the river if he cares so much.
This guy is a coward, he is sleazy. If he really cared about all those moral virtues, he didn't have to bet $1B of other peoples money to do it.
The guys is a creep.
What a moron, he should just jump already, he doesn't deserve the dog pound truck that gets sent out to scoop up his carcus.
Ackman for President and local robin hood gay guy !
Ackman playing hero, and will take down Apple Computor next, people in China are killing themselves working long hours building iphones and ipads.
I heard Acky is storming the Apple campus now and calling Steve Jobs a slave driver.
Apple has been exploiting poor Chinese workers for years now and Acky says "shut them down"
selling squares for $.01
Maybe he will be a jumper?
No, that actually takes courage, he is too much a coward to jump from anything higher then his crib.
You sound like the FDA, who in the court of law has declared that Humans have no "right" to good health.
so much for the "dream"
Bruno Mali only makes semi swank Italian shoes, not real high end, sort of wanna be rich. I have a pair actually two, but prefer my Santino's.
I think they now have money to burn, but making positive free cash flow is not really top of the agenda right now. Many of these China net stocks don't know how to monetize their business, and the ones that do have such huge profit margins that I think Wallstreet and Obvious CNBC Jim Cramer hate them for turning out 70% profit margins, any time it shrinks to 69% every crys about it, every time it goes up,they cry that its unsustainable margins, Wallstreet hates anything China.
YOKU, now has money to burn, and burn it they will. They stay alive for any years. The company gets bought out by Alibaba after the IPO, when ever that is?
In the mean time, the computors trade this, and kill the Open Interest, no matter Call or Put.
There is nothing to drive this stock higher until the Alibaba IPO, there are plenty of Calls to kill in August. So Its dead money until they turn a profit. when ever that is.
And don't hold your breath for an baba ipo rally, that may not happen either.
There is nothing bullish bout the char, maybea double bottom. No volume spike driving it up indicating short covering. No several week volume spikes driving this up, well below the major moving averages.
Once again. All indicators suck. everything is terrible.
And only for that reason, this might go up. Because the market, is rarely logical.
You are the kind of person best suited for flying military drones from an under ground bunker in Nevada, over the skies of Iraq and killing the target, his entire family and friends all with one shot. From the safety of thousands of miles away, where nobody know what you really do for a living. You can go home to your family without them knowing you just slaughtered a bunch of children in the fire storm.
ANY coward can sit behind a computer screen and wreak havoc upon innocent people.
Just like your doing right now, reading everything word I type, as its being typed. deciding for yourself, what can be public, if if it doesn't suit YOU and your agenda. youll decide to delete my post.
Must give you a great sense of power and pleasure in life, censoring what we say here. Most likely you have no power or pleasure anywhere else, so your perfect for this job aren't you!!!
You are wrecking what it means to be free, to be American !
no doubt he sells everything to the NSA your entire lives being offered to the highest bidder.
Anybody else read that article about him ripping off the real estate developer?
He said he cant pay $4 million for a house....he ends up paying $1.7m, then reniggs on his agreement.
man the dude is worth more then $10B, and he cant afford a $4M house?
cut out our tongues, and invite us into the sauna, ooops I meant gas chambers.
What a bunch of soul less free speech terrorists.
TALK about selling your soul and undermining everything that means to be American and free!
These guys must be Pentagon, or NSA ,or CIA....slowly ERODING OUR FREEDOMS!
Un real, the lady doesn't even know how to turn our financial ship around, and now she is supposed to be some sort of MNKD guru ?
Sounds like somebody got to her. Probably the J mafia, Cramer, Herb, Adam....the J mafia sent her a horse head or a fish and told her to bash MNKD or suffer like the rest of us do by their one sided short selling tactics.
I think I just did. Several weeks ago huge blocks of $20 Call contracts were bought for July 19 expiration while the stock was over $20. Now miraculously the computors programs were able to close the stock today at $20.08. Not bad but not a miracle either knowing that computors manipulated the stock down to the very penny on the exact day of expiration.
Somebody also bought a much bigger amount of August Calls at $26 strike.
Another miracle in the making Those are now worth almost NOTHING.....and if there is no Alibaba IPO before August contracts expire, then guess what.....There is NOTHING that will drive YOKU higher. Not a Gd Darn single thing. All of those Calls will also get wiped out. By again an amazing computer program.
Now September might give YOKU a boost, As long as Alibaba has the IPO, maybe YOKU goes up a point, maybe two.
I wouldn't hold my breath here. It seems more bad news is just piling up for poor old YOKU.
Alibaba might buy them out completely, but not for a few months.
And I suspect, shorts will drive YOKU into the dirt.....
BUT WAIT.....When everything looks totally ugly.....that's when real surprises happen. It cant get any uglier for YOKU....And for that reason alone, It just might go up.....crazyyyy
They sure pinned this to $20 today, got rid of all those $20 calls.
Now, they just need to hold her down around $20 for another month and wipe out all the calls again.
Nothing like a free market.
This will climb back up once those calls get killed. They will pop this back up towards $27, then drop her back down again before August Calls expire.
Funny how that's so predictable.
