    David Allen,

    Excellent point - IPG is likely to gain a competitive advantage due to their 'cutting edge' innovative products.

    ccsqrd,

    Thank you for pointing out the chart issue. That was the result of leaving off the P when getting the quote. The IPGP chart will be inserted.

  • Bridge Watch On The MS Herbalife [View article]
    I think what Mr. Steadson means is that the stories coming from the shorts are becoming more bizarre. The shorts are now at the point of not being able to outdo themselves.

    HOD posted her thesis on my last positive article on the company. I see it as another attempt to distract investors. It's just a made-up thesis dressed up as having some validity to it.

    The FTC investigation was only brought on after pressure from Ackman. Herbalife is confident that it will have a positive outcome.

  • Update: Arthur J. Gallagher Q2 Earnings [View article]
    If the company meets/exceeds earnings expectations for the majority of its quarters, I think $59 could be reached during that time frame.

  • Facebook Will Continue Its Rise From The Pits [View article]
    These are not virtual profits like the late 90s. Many companies back then weren't profitable, but their stocks were getting bidded up to unreasonable levels based on hopefully turning a profit in the future. FB is profitable now and it has the means to buyout competitors that would be a threat.

    IntheTube,

    The author addressed the PE issue by showing how FB's growth exceeds its forward PE via the reasonable PEG ratio. I think that FB will be a market leader for the foreseeable future. Active users in the U.S. spend an average of 45 minutes a day on the site. That can only be positive for advertising.

    sr.sr,

    Your comment is an example of the naysayers on here who make accusations that aren't true. If you do that directly to me, what's to prevent you from doing it about HLF?

    E. Robert Smith said "How would you like to own a company where thousands of people are spending their time and money promoting your company and its products, and you didn’t have to pay them for doing so"

    Of course I would - if people are willing to promote products without getting paid, that's excellent for business. What's not to like? People actually pay companies and advertise for them when they purchase brands like Nike shirts with the logo on them.

    Many people join HLF to lose weight, get fit and the shakes help them do that. All of this talk about victims is an exaggeration.

  • Is It Wrong To Take A Position In A Stock And Then Write About It On Seeking Alpha? [View article]
    David,

    Thank you for clearing things up for readers. There is a lot of misunderstanding regarding those phrases.

    Ian,

    I disagree. I write about many stocks with an unbiased analysis, many of which I don't own. It's not feasible for me to own every stock that I write about. If that's your stance, fine, but you should realize that contributors do solid unbiased articles.

    sr.sr,

    I don't have clients - I'm an independent researcher, doing an unbiased analysis.

    I'll reiterate that the CEO stated in the latest conference call that he is confident that the company will have a positive outcome.

    All of the investigations, Ackman, etc. are a distraction - just noisemakers.
