"Now he likes P&G so now I'm worried"
Ackman initiated his PG postion in MID 2012.
He sold two thirds of his position LAST AUGUST (but did buy some calls)
By somewhat clarifying Ackman's PG position, have I made you less "worried"???
I'm humored when a stock goes the "wrong" way, those on the other side often pull the "M" card.
It's not the #$%$ fundamentals of a company that drives shares down, it's "MM manipulation" Okay, if that "reason" makes you feel better.
"Shares haven't been much is ever higher than the closing price of DMND the day you posted."
Shares haven't been much higher, and maybe not higher, since the date you posted the above nugget over two years ago.
I post on many boards. I am being entertained by reading some of the weed boards, but there's no way I would speculate in any of the issues. Perhaps my opporturnity loss, but I've seen this movie before. YOU, on the other hand, only post on one board? You say you "follow" GRNH; are you long or short? (again I have no position) Do you only "follow" one stock? I'd think if you have a vested interest in weed stocks that you'd be "following" more than GRNH. I have no problem with you posting info pertaining to the subject at hand. I do have a MAJOR PROBLEM with your disingenuous posts where you are plugging a COMMERCIAL SERVICE. If you look back far enough, I did post here, but since I don't want to be a nuisance to longs, I choose not to post, except to CALL YOU OUT AS THE SPAMMER THAT YOU ARE. Strange how once "alisodersten" disappeared, you showed up. That SPAMMER initiated its moniker early this year, and only posted on this board (just like you).
It left and you showed up. Did you off that "poster"? Are you the same person? How do you become a professional SPAMMER? Did you get recruited?
If you ventured beyond the GRNH board, you'd see there are countless "mattewm.rall" lookalikes using the same MO to PROMOTE RisingBalls. You are amongst a pack of gypsies!
P.S. Nice post heading about no one should be surprised about GRNH's volatility. No kidding. From 4 cents six weeks ago to a buck 20 and down to 46 or so cents.
HOW MUCH DO YOU GET PAID TO BE A SPAMMER? I get it, a job is a job, but I'd say morals should be a consideration before you take any job.

DMND WILL BE TRADING OVER 100 IN A FEW MONTHS.
Such a profitable and dividend paying company and market cap only $600mil. Are you kidding me. Get your head out of your you know what and load up this gem. This could be an opportunity of life time to make money."
Nice call, DMND PLUNGED a few days after you posted the above nugget. Shares haven't been much is ever higher than the closing price of DMND the day you posted. WHERE'S $100/SHARE???
You may think I'm a tad negative, even though I AM LONG DMND, I'd say you were quite the CHEERLEADER a couple years ago. You made several rediculous post back then; they were rediculuos then and not just in hindsight.
DMND is up due to the refinancing being done a tad better than expected.
P.S. Do not read "Diamond Foods Said to Reduce Rate on $415 Million Loan Financing" posted under its Yahoo quote. It includes a few RATIONAL statements that you would construe as "negative". I'm sure, if you read the article, you would conclude the author is a "basher" and a "short".
Again: I am long DMND, but I am realistic and I do not subscribe to the puppies and rainbows investment theory, as you do.
"Give us a break!!!!!!!!"
How about YOU giving this message board a break!!!!!
Your heading makes NO SENSE.
Comparing three stocks' share prices, by themselves is meaningless.
GRNH: $51 million
TRTC: $45 million
PHOT: $249 million
Yes, GRNH is valued more than TRTC, but its valuation is a fifth of PHOT.
matt, why don't you acknowledge my questions?
For example: why (under the matt moniker) do you only post on this one site?
SPAM is like junk mail; most people do not like receiving it.
Do you get paid per text?
And most importantly: what did you do to alisodersten?
No I don't have an "unhealthy obsession" with you, but I do enjoy calling you out.
I have a strong aversion to disingenuous people (READ YOU) who attempt to portray themselves as a fellow poster, but actually have an ulterior commercial motive. Apparently this concept, hating spam and those who dispense it, is too difficult for you to comprehend.
Okay, I'll ask nicely: PLEASE STOP SPAMMING.
P.S. Do your friends and family know that you are a professional SPAMMER?
9 months ago, longs were all excited about CL splitting its shares, because the "cheaper" shares would increase demand for the shares and lead to a higher share price.
Well the "cheaper" part was correct LOL.
As one can see, splits really don't mean much; CL being a case in point.
Split announced 3/7 and CL closed at 57.71 (adjusted)
Split paid 5/15 and CL closed at 62.275
"Oh the humanity!"
What should come as a surprise to other posters is that you are still SPAMMING THIS BOARD.
How do you become a SPAMMER? Night classes?
Once you have your degree for online SPAMMING, do you get assigned a small territory at first?
What happened to your peer alisodersten? Alisodersten was a new poster just a few weeks ago and it spewed its SPAM using the SAME SPAM technique as you (must have been learned in SPAM 101--or are you one and the same? LOL). Allie is now gone and now this board is being SPAMMED by you.
How much do you get paid to SPAM and why are you only SPAMMING under matt on just one board?
You need a new profession.
And the worst part?
Your text address yields horrible info.
I suggest investors should just text "RUN" to RisingBalls to 38258.
P.S. Do you believe in Karma? (I hope not!)
I buy a large unit of Tide and refill a smaller one for ease of use; save a bit in the process.
I appreciate your comment about low income consumers; unfortunately by buying the more expensive per ounce smaller unit, they end up paying more money (good for PG).
How small can these companies go? (rhetorical question).
On another note, I'll be buying a small amount of shares today via dividend reinvestment.
How about Snyder's-Lance (LNCE) as a another member of the comparison group?
Market cap is 1.81B
Price to Sales: 1.03
Re Oaktree, I presume the market has factored in the warrant conversion/dilution, since the warrants have been in the money forever!
I hate the oft used trick of consumer product companies when they shrink a product's container and keep the price the same in lieu of simply raising a product's price. Yes, I get it, IT WORKS, but I don't have to like it. A "serving" of yogurt used to be 8 oz., then 6 and now some are 5.3 ounces. OJ "half gallons" are no longer a half a gallon; same with ice cream...at least the milk industry hasn't succumbed (yet); they still offer half gallons. Even worse, IMO, is the trick of keeping a container the same height, but having a dimple on the bottom resulting in less volume. I have to imagine, at some point, NEW LARGER SIZEs will be offered; otherwise the consumer will have to buy two units of what they used to only buy 1.
Well here's one thing Lafley has been working on:
"Consumers may not notice that they are paying more for Tide Plus, because rather than up the cost of the bottle, P&G is shrinking each container: 100 ounce bottles, for example, will become 92 ounces, and 50 ounce bottles will be downsized to 46 ounces. The tactic has been a tried and true way for consumer-goods makers to sell less volume for the same price."
Love him or hate him (those seem to be the only choices LOL), I thought the following may be of interest to some. Source: homepage of YahooFinance
"Rising raw food prices—from milk to almonds—caused "high-profile blowups" among several big food stocks, CNBC's Jim Cramer said Tuesday.
Cramer singled out one company, Dean Foods, as a stock that investors should avoid. He called the stock "radioactive," and investors seemed to heed his advice—the shares dropped more than 10 percent in early trading Tuesday.
"Jeez, it's a milk company," Cramer said on "Squawk on the Street." "People are going to think it's radioactive milk. No. What I mean is that the raw costs are going up here."
(Read more: Dean Foods warns of quarterly loss as raw milk prices rise)
The stock joins ConAgra Foods, Annie's and WhiteWave Foods as companies suffering from the same kind of pricing problems, Cramer said. Dean Foods, the largest dairy processor in the U.S., warned on Tuesday that it could post a loss in the first quarter because of rising milk costs.
Dean Foods said that milk prices rose sooner than expected in 2014 because of growing global demand.
"The whole food chain is rebelling against the stocks," Cramer said.
Rising almond prices hurt WhiteWave, a Dean Foods spinoff that specializes in plant-based dairy products, and increasing organic wheat prices hurt the snack business of natural food maker Annie's, Cramer said.

Cramer added that the ongoing drought in California is "playing havoc with a lot of the raw food costs," including almond and avocado prices."
