Started watching HLF with the recent price movements, trying to decide whether to go long or not?
I see the long argument, stock may go up due to suppression of a prolonged short attack.
Was somewhat surprised that there is basically a neutral sentiment of HLF on several sites.
I guess my biggest concern is the financial trend, decreasing sales, EPS, etc.
What has been causing the disappointing results the last couple of years?
Not totally improbable that Beloranib might have some benefit in that area.
Lipitor functions a bit like what you described:
Lipitor is a prescription drug in a class of medicines called statins. Atorvastatin is the active pharmaceutical ingredient in Lipitor. The product label says Lipitor is indicated as an adjunct therapy to diet to reduce elevated total and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol and to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease, including heart attack, chest pain and stroke in patients with multiple risk factors.
Research published in the Journal of the American Medical Association in 2004 and in the American Journal of Medicine in 2005 discovered that intensive lipid-lowering treatment with 80mg per day of atorvastatin in patients with coronary heart disease reduces arterial plaque, also called atheroma, and progression of coronary atherosclerosis by 0.4 percent. Intravascular ultrasonography was used to provide a three-dimensional view of the size and distribution of plaque inside the coronary artery. Moreover, baseline low-density lipoprotein cholesterol level was reduced from 150mg per dL to 79mg per dL. The results demonstrate that Lipitor can dissolve plaque and reduce risk factors associated with coronary artery disease
Thanks for mentioning that, hadn't noticed. Looks like someone tried to push it up for the close
but it didn't hold. Down ~ $8 fro the high of the day.
Have no idea what will go on next week, but I'll have some limit orders in to take advantage of volatility. I would think it will be a bit calmer and trade in a more limited range, but we'll see.
Bentley Motors unveiled at the 2015 Geneva International Motor Show a new mysterious concept car EXP 10 Speed 6, without information on type of drivetrain or any details.
We initially did not pay attention to this high performance luxury two seater sportscar, but as an experimental model we thought (and later confirmed) it’s a plug-in hybrid.
Bentley is already developing a plug-in hybrid SUV called Bentayga and EXP 10 Speed 6 concept eventually could be next in line.
wow, Yahoo wont ley you say thanks for not outright accusing me of beast eeee ality
amazing what they choose to censor.
Thank you for not outright accusing me of #$%$,
My position is simple:
I feel bamm was wrong. Tesla has not stopped construction, but they are slowing it down for unknown reasons. If it is for financial reasons as he suggests, then that might actually be a positive, because Tesla is getting ahead of a potential situation.
Bamm was irresponsible when he said Tesla had no cash, as they still have over $1 billion is cash. That doesnt mean there are not questions on how Tesla will pay for the gigafactory given the lack of profits, etc.
... but thats just the opinion of me and my monkey
Do you think the union would be commenting on an 80% reduction IN THE PROJECT if this was planned?
From the Reno Gazette Journal
Construction has been delayed at Telsa Motors' gigafactory site east of Reno, according to a couple of union job postings.
Earlier this year, the national job board for the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers updated its listing for "Project Tiger" — the initial code name for the gigafactory — to indicate a change in demand for electricians.
"The Tiger Project has been cut back by 80% at this time," the IBEW post said. "This is all subject to change."
Meanwhile, the local branch of the union in Reno also posted a message about the gigafactory on its job referral page. Several members said the message initially mentioned "Project Tiger" before it was updated.
"The major project in the area has been delayed at this time," said the post on the IBEW Local 401 site. "Further updates will be posted as soon as we know more."
They're not laying off, they're just not hiring as planned. I applaud Tesla if they're getting fiscally responsible.
You taking a page from Elon's playbook with distractions?
Then again, for longs its less painful than thinking about the challenges ahead for Tesla.
I understand why you'd get upset over the statement . Telsa would not stop construction, even if it was a scam. Especially if it was a scam.
I do think Elon was caught a bit by surprise that he didnt have a whole bunch of partners looking to jump on the project,. Part of it was just unfortunate timing with oil prices tanking.
Was reading that Tesla has only put ~ $107 mil so far in the project, so I share bamms questions regarding how the gigafactory will be funded. I think if Tesla actually does slow the gigafactory down, or scales it back, they will earn some respect back. It will show they know they have to operate in the real world.
I disagree, let the world behold his genius !
It serves as a PSA against drug and Koolaid abuse.
I dont think it started that way, but his credibility has sure been strained by recent statements. I think he has really painted himself into a corner. Oil prices, delays, competition, are all taking their toll now.
That might have great appeal to a large number of California Tesla owners.
