  • Visa: Undervalued With Significant Growth Ahead [View article]
    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.

  • Visa: Undervalued With Significant Growth Ahead [View article]
    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

    Yeah, now I'm not sure if this author is a current short or a future long of the stock... possibly both? The fact that the article was timed right when AMBA entered its quiet period makes me really suspicious....

  • Ambarella: Channel Checks Point To Earnings Miss, Significant Downside [View article]
    All these people short the stock have seen the run up in price and as soon as a few early on investors take profits and the stock drops, they're piling on. Looking at the bigger picture though, this company is experiencing significant growth and is much more diversified than this contributor describes.

  • Ackman to file SEC complaint following news of Soros Herbalife stake: NY Post [View news story]
    Ackman is toast. Good company or not, he has tainted his hedgefund by displaying his inability to keep his business life and personal feelings separate. Any reasonable investor would have cut some losses after the first earnings beat, no less the second earnings beat. The fact that he insists that he hasn't bought back a single share speaks volumes about his motives. Despite his past track record, it won't be long before his investors begin to realize that he is willing to risk THEIR money in his failed attempts to hurt Icahn for HIS personal benefit. First of the month...possibility for redemptions?
