For moi, it will be "without"
Why didn't you write "MY promotion."
"Alex: I'll take why it's a losing proposition to put money in hyped stocks for $200"
"I had taken some profits..."
And I bet others have as well; all very normal.
I love it when a stock declines and "investors" reach for the "M" card!
"Alex: I'll take conspiracy theories for $200"
Fun to watch this index; currently priced at $2.96...when will the carnage end???
FYI, GWPH's weight in MJX is a whopping 48.29%, vpor: 0.17% and my other favorite, vape: 0.43%.
Wow, r55keeler, apparently you know something that KMI management is unaware of....
How does your track record of running a business compare to Rich Kinder's record???
I'm well past the time I speculated, and clearly just about every weed stock is a pure speculation (and I'm being kind with that description)
My bad; I was just about to type a correction, but you beat me to it.
vape or vpor, both are rated "AVOID".
Enjoy your day!
P.S. I was only a penny broker for a few months, but it did allow me to see some wild "activities" and more importantly it allowed me to get my 7.
Are you being truthful in this post or untruthful similar to one of your posts from yesterday when you wrote "SOLD!!!" and followed that header up with "IM (sic) out!..." Followed by, when appropriately called out by another poster, "I only sold a portion" meaning you were not "out!"
Second question are you unaware that by writing "Watch and learn" that you come across as a total d ba g??? Yes that's right, IMO, anyone who writes "Watch and learn" is a total d ba g.
"...u know as well as I do that a very good company such as vapor group can be shorted so much that it disallows the company to raise capital..."
"good company"--that's a subjective comment
WHY is vape being "shorted so much"???
A: the company's share price exploded to ridiculous levels
A: the company is not as great as some have been led to believe..."a fool and his money are soon parted"
We both know if vape had a better business model, financials and management and was a bit more seasoned, it could have IPOed. Rightly or wrongly, companies that become public via the back door are subject to being scorned by the investment community.
"...but there is a reason u are here..."
Yes, and more than one: I like reading message boards and the entertainment they offer
I'm a consumer.
It has been and continues to be fun to watch a particular sector get WAY AHEAD of itself due to RETAIL "investors" paying up for unproven businesses.
And yes, vape is being professionally marketed to retail investors; not necessarily a bad thing...
I imagine HAIN would love to have as much product as possible in every retail food outlet, but obviously that is not the case. Still room for growth! That said, I do see a lot of HAIN products in a variety of outlets. Now that WMT is expanding its nat/organic offerings, I'm pleased that HAIN has been and is sell more of their products at WMT; why pass up on this revenue opportunity? The largest nat/organic retailers SELL THE MOST product. Mom and pop independents are becoming a much smaller slice of the market; this can be witnessed by UNFI's continuing decline in margins, but sales and income are increasing.
I have seen some HAIN products, say Walnut Acres spaghetti sauce, that once were sold in my local WMF, but no longer are. I sometimes only see WWAV's milks and no Dream or WestSoy products.
I think the Pringles knock off may sell well in all outlets, but for now, WMT apparently has an exclusive deal. IF WMT shoppers (some, not all LOL) want to try a nat/organic product, they may be more willing to try something that they are somewhat familiar with, such as a Pringles knock off. Of course, the colors of HAIN's product may freak them out!
Should HAIN be more aggressive in getting its product placed in every retail outlet? I imagine that is their goal, but do they have enough product producing capacity (either subcontracted or in house)?
Cost-wise, how aggressive should HAIN be? Hate to see margin erosion.
Could HAIN be executing even better than it has over the past few years? I imagine there is always room for improvement, but I'm pretty content with the decisions Irwin and team have made and how they are managing the company.
I thought there were no taxes associated with option grants until the shares from exercising the options were sold at a profit.
All of these options has an exercise price of zero.
Presumably these options were about to expire; otherwise, why exercise and not sell?
Yes, some options were simply exercised into shares with no shares being sold, while others sold some shares.
The sales were completed during the past few days BEFORE earnings were announced.
sno, yes, I'm still long STKL with av cost of 8.08, but I've held it for quite some time. I have had the same thought about how it has performed relative to others, but I remain stubborn and continue to hold. Seems like a good business, but as you know, the execution has been bumpy. In the sector, I'm also long UNFI which hasn't done that super lately, LWAY which drives me crazy given the family's majority ownership, and HAIN.
gelt, remember: RIF!
I was responding to another poster; I have only periodically added to my FLPSX position.
From what I could tell, it appears the poster is thinking about selling. I was keeping it simple and pointed out that the NAV decreases once a distribution is paid and therefore, whether one receives said distribution or not should not be a factor in when to sell.
Re taxes, it really is pretty much a wash. Sell the day before the ex date and one will have a larger cap gain; sell day of distribution and the cap gain will be less by the amount of the distribution amount (all else equal), but the distribution is taxable.
While I do own some FLPSX in my taxable account, it's best to hold funds in tax advantaged accounts, since they are not very tax efficient--with the exception of index funds...Total Market funds (mostly in my taxable AC) represent about 30% of my holdings.
Well, I better stop my rambling.
