  • Facebook: Soon To Be A Shell Of Its Former Self, Like AOL [View article]
    Great logic...now dare we use that same logic to justify TESLA's outlandish overvaluation? Didn't think so...

    Lack of a dividend??? REALLY? Why take cash out @ 3 or 4% when the company can use that to develop products with IRR's well greater than 4%?

    Investor RockieK, as a teacher, I can very definitively say that your sample is a bad source. As a teacher I have discussed with other friends (whom are also teachers) and we all arrive at the same conclusions... students, despite rumors of migrating youth, are just that, rumors.

    Let me join the masses and "+1" your article...oh wait, there is no one to join...this clearly exhibits your "Google + is a fierce Facebook competitor" argument. Maybe I should share it on LinkedIn! Wait, no one has done that either (the one person who clicked that link was myself to test it out, don't get excited, I didn't share it). So, please, author, tell me again how you think there are competitors in the social networking business? WAIT! I know, you must be talking about MYSPACE!!! (wait that can't be right, didn't Facebook steal the majority of their entire user base?).

    All you bears are crazy if you think Facebook is going to go away or will become what AOL was. It is entirely different. Facebook is more than a social network, it has become a social investment. It is the only platform (on a mass scale) that has successfully created a domain for our virtual selves. It's integration into Apple products displays its ability to stay around and be an effective growth company.

  • Visa: Undervalued With Significant Growth Ahead [View article]
    By that logic, no stock would ever make new highs because everyone would be avoiding them when they reached the previous highs.

    Where are you going to get 15 shares of V at the IPO price given its current trading level??? If V were trading at $50/share then buying 100 shares would have been no problem!

    Purchasing "10 or 15" shares is going to cause commissions to take a larger percentage out of your gains.

    Do you own every stock that you think is a good buy? No, it would be impossible. Imagine the bank roll you would require if you thought that MA, V, AAPL, GOOG and IBM were all outstanding purchases. You would need upwards of 175K+ just to hold 100 share positions in each. Maybe you might have that kind of free capital but not all contributors (or readers) do.

  • Herbalife Still Ascending Mount Everest - Look Out Below [View article]
    Seems like the bear side of this trade seems to think that there is no way that 88% of "distributors" not receiving compensations could possibly be discount purchasers, but why not take a moment, step back and look from a different angle.

    What if Coca-Cola said tomorrow we're changing our business practices to cut down on advertising, instead we're going to follow the MLM model.

    What is the customer base going to do, continue to purchase small quantities at MSRP (or thereabout) OR are they going to join with Coca-Cola, pay a small initiation fee and purchase their soda in bulk quantities, where the sum of savings per bottle (as well as other Coca-Cola brand products) is greater than the initiation fee. I believe the bulk of the cola drinking population would choose the later. It really isn't that difficult to understand.

    I suggest the you shorts stop acting like lemmings and let Ackman fall of the cliff alone.

    Surprise! Another Negative story from the subjective, Perma-Bear Matt Stewart.

    Actually...scratch that, this isn't even an article, its a list of questions that he is not qualified to answer himself.

    Stop spewing garbage.

  • Ackman sends 52-pager to Herbalife auditor, Ramey says nothing material [View news story]
    "In light of the materiality of this audit to Herbalife, it is crucial that investors can be confident of the independence and objectivity..."

    Is he serious? If you were so worried about independence and objectivity, you would have shut your mouth and let the auditing company, whose specialization is in accounting and auditing, do their job unimpeded and without outside commotion!

    Nothing reeks of desperation as badly as blackmail does.

    Ackman is essentially saying to the auditor:

    "If I'm right, you will lose, and if I'm wrong I will do what it takes so that you lose."

  • Ambarella: Channel Checks Point To Earnings Miss, Significant Downside [View article]
    No picture, only 8 comments, following 3 and only 2 followers...yeah sorry, but anything you say has zero credibility with me.

    Regarded = Well known contributor on the site, 11,513 comments, 7500 followers... I'm not one to buy into the logical fallacies of Ad Populum, BUT his track record is proven.

    LONG $AMBA
