the comments of a moron. Quick now s head, what was the roic on Buffet's middle 7 years on KO? How did he do with FRE? How about FNM? I'd go on, but you are a wasted effort.
HLF is a great american company helping millions lose weight, gain balanced protein nutrition, and even helping many supplement their income in these difficult times.
Cover your 20 shares and go short something like LULU that actually is overvalued... or don;t. Stay short and impale yourself for the holidays like all the other gumptards are going to do being short here. LOL
The stock is going higher by a bunch. Selling out early and quickly will ensure you have the holidays to repent at leisure.
The shorts are f hosed... let them rot.
F moron, every single time he posts on every company! LOL
HLF ia a S kicking, heel stomping machine just stone guaranteed to crush #$%$ ant shorts' margin accounts.
And bull F S you went to Penn. LOL
Quick now putz, how much of HLF's revenue stream ytd has been from "vitamins. hint: compare that 4/% of total to protein supplements. LOL
We don't do the daytrader PT, but see you all above $90 before the end of the next Q earnings call.
Shorts are hosed here. LOL
Said she just talked to traders who think the vitamin news may hold the share back. ya right -- tell a goofy pidgeon that if you are short and hope the producers will let her say something like that. Vits don;t matter more than a retail trade or three to HLF stock. LOL
What does matter is coming with news of the leveraged buyback... and pulling the borrow. These are underway behind closed doors. Stay tuned for the big news coming, but don't gift your shares to morons short this story!
huge program trades trying to cover... don't gift your shares to them folks -- $80 right away!
of course PWC audit was going to come back clean if one can think and knows anything about the SEC peer review program the Big $ run with... but now even the naysayers have that Woody allen sock down their throats.
But this was a BIG BIG BIG news event for what is to follow...
1. KMPG agrees to reimburses HLF the $15M+ of re-audit fees.
2. HLF files $2B debt registration with use of proceeds intended for stock repurchases.
3. Another year on top of 27 plus without any FTC action to constrain U.S.-based distribution program.
4. Another year passes by without any SEC issue of consequence.
5. Dec Q will reflect yet another Q of surprisingly strong desk stock buybacks ahead of the leveraged buyback program initiation.
6. For the Dec Q, HLF will also put up record revs, ebitda and EPS, continuing the program of beat and raise guidance followed by the entire sell side group needing to raise their estimates for 2014.
7. Ackman will continue to call a small pumpkin an "alien spaceship" packing howling wolves, and still everyone will grin, shake their heads and leave him with a new supply of Woody allen socks full of horse dung to chew on as Uncle Carl and the enema team, along with players like conservative Fidelity turn up the screws and pull the borrow on call it all of the float.
Joking or incredibly uninformed? LOL
The equipment is expensive and about the 2/3s the size of a VW beetle roof. But there is no need for this equipment in cars or homes when people have cable or direct satellite cyber connections and or 4g smartphones and ipads with all of the internet connectivity they need.
as noted, it may take until the leveraged buyback program is launched or until the Dec Q earnings call, but we will give ourselves a month of slack in the line given our outstanding prognostication record on short term price movement here. LOL
We've pointed it out before, but Ackman and his investors would have an additional $1.5B+ of capital had they covered in the 24m shares and gotten long when we did last march at $38 share. You'd think his mother might tell him it is time to stop squirming and cover in while he still has a fund, and perhaps enough time that this blown call will be no more than a butch for his investors about like Target, JCP and a handful of other blown calls. LOL
What a delightful thread...
Who needs a Pakiville trading/posting club comprised of imbecilic putzes when Ackman is willing to stand down there in the corner of a field full of sheep yelling "Alien Spaceship" 700 times -- until he breaks down crying one more time, purple faced and all, while everyone who once wondered if a punpkin could actually be an Alien Spaceship shakes their heads and walks away from the whining turning into writhing.
But wait, who is in front of that group of horsemen on the horizon? Why it is Uncle Carl and his band of Enema Team administrators... and we can hardly wait to see the string of positive news releases coming to the fore over the next few weeks.
Did you ever hear the one about you can lead a horse to water but sometimes you have to shove a Woody allen sock full of horse dung to educate him on taking a drink before running a marathon to the winners' circle with Uncle Carl? ROFLOL
You can lead a horse to water, but sometimes he must kick himself in the head repeatedly to learn anything.
Now it is clear the big run up was to ameliorate the sharp dilution of this #$%$ on the heels of the ipo. Gogo already has all the big carriers under multiyear contracts; those buying this better hope the exit plan is a sale to someone who can find about $1B of value in a technology none of the majors want or need vs Gogo, and also in a "niche" tht now has about 1 billion smartphone competitors in addition to the 5 or so other players who want to have the captive audience paying them something anything for what will soon be a ubiquitous and free service on all domestic and international flights.
These guys have a playbook for all to suck up... distribute the ownership at higher prices than the founders have in and away from the concentration seen to date, and also enrich exec manager cronies in the process, but do it quick before everyone figures out there is not going to be much margin or operating leverage in the "free internet" game.
Meanwhile, as ENT strives to add 40 LUV planes this 2h13, Gogo outfitted thousands of planes on the majors... how does this company even have a seat at the table? They must be planning to sell out soon.
it is more than "generally", flying already sucks, it would be a disaster to allow people to talk to friends and take phone calls all around passengers trying to find some peace and quiet or sleep on a flight. Send a text or email? Type quietly! But make a phone call? No F way will the public tolerate that nonsense.
BA's exec team is the best in the business. That guy is advocating Marxism... he might like working in china or for Aeroflot... those "socialist" places are dreamy for the bleeding hearted. LOL
Somalia? Hardly... what they need is merely competent airfram and powerplant workers happy to have a high quality, top paying job, not guys who want to complain they are not making $200k/year with OT spiiffs and sick day pay included in their final wages calcs for retirement benefit purposes.
And, really now, environmental concerns? Get back to eating tree bark and granola and hugging trees and spotted owls and do a little bit of study before slinging such nonsense. BA is one of the most responsible large corporations in U.S. manufacturing history.
Those who think worker bees are underpaid seem to be incapable of processing that American unions have cost millions of high quality, high paying, U.S.-based jobs to flee to equally competent and far more cost-efficient venues.
Be careful what you seek or you may find yourselves needing to get your resumes out and move to China... they are going to be hiring all the airframe and powerplant mechanics they can find for about 1/5 the hourly rate you guys already have here... and they won't be paying you any health or disability or retirement benefits. Like it or not (we don't care) the unions need to realize they are at risk of losing the war on membership if they persist with uneconomic demands.
This buyback number is HUGE, especially since they plan to complete the remaining $.8B authorization and the new $10B over the next 2-3 years according to the cfo.
This should have little trouble RIPPING past $150 by EOY, just in time for the buyback plan to kick on in january, sending the shares on what is a likely RIP well past $200 during 2014.
Tomorrow will be fun... we will be doubling our position this week on this delightful news!
up $5 on $132 since... and it belongs above $150 even before tonight's big buyback news.
See you all at $140+ tomorrow on the RIP to $150+ by EOY as the power of the buyback news percolates.
Further, continuing this year's rip, BA will be a top performing stock next year. We'll be adding again tomorrow on the news!
