My two cents: Looking past the financial results, LC created a new market place bringing together investors and borrowers and seriously undercutting traditional banks. TREE is nice but not really anything new.
Up from here half the height of the cup. This is not, however a textbook cup and handle as the pattern is a continuation pattern, not a bottom pattern.
I don't blame lawyers. They're going after money. I blame the system that makes such frivolous lawsuits profitable to lawyers.
The lawsuits are based on misleading shareholders about internal controls that should have prevented the improper characterization of loans sold to an investor. Given the 99.9% of loans that were properly characterized, the case is extremely weak.
Lawyers like class action lawsuits. They make money on them. But no one else does.
I think the BOD wants to get all the bad news out at one time. Tougher lending standards are bad news to the market I guess. Higher rates are bad for the market I guess. Upside down gotta have it now stock market determined by children with no long term outlook. $5 is a pretty rational price right now so I'm adding to my position.
You have provided a valuable service to LC investors! I recommend you short something other than a stunning growth story in the future and you won't lose so much net worth! Maybe try a failing company? Just an idea...
Obviously insiders are trading on some news today (5/31/2016). Why are they dumping shares? Anyone?
I'm going to keep resurrecting his old posts until he runs off with his tail between his legs.
Traditionally, the market revs up on the first trading day following a holiday weekend, all things being equal. I expect a surge in LC buying interest next Tuesday 5/31.
If you've already shorted, thank you for providing future guaranteed price support to LC. I just want to make sure any weak long term holders get flushed this week (hedge fund managers and mutual fund manager types). Please dump your shares at any price this week. The EOQ is approaching and you don't want your fellow fund managers laughing at you for holding LC. That's what's important after all. It's not like you have any conviction. It's not like you're managing your own money either! Ha Ha Ha! Who cares if it's client money!
Thanks for lining my pockets with your cash jack ball! You know what they say about a fool and his money.
...just a reminder.
All bad news is out. Shorty sucked it up like a lap dog. He's about to get slaughtered. This incident will be viewed as a hiccup in the rise of Lending Club soon to be worth hundreds of billions...market share stolen from archaic brick and mortar banks that refuse to adapt. Stop buying Jamie Dimon a 12th yacht. Invest with LC.
