  • Dear Mr. President-Elect: Advice on Combating White-Collar Crime from a Convicted Felon [View article]
    Correction:

    "Oh I get it, we need a crook to catch crooks! In other words, your past felony level (which you seem proud of as if it were a merit badge) scumbag disregard for law and the rest of societal values make you UNIQUELY qualified for a high paying consultancy position in gov't right?"

    I don't charge the government for my consulting work. As to your other points, there is a saying "it takes one to know one."

    As a general comment to all your feedback, white collar crime will always be around since every person lives with sin and temptation. White collar crime is either more noticed or less noticed but is always there. Most white collar crimes are flushed out as the economy weakens, since it is harder to sustain such crimes. I thank you all for your comments.

    Berstock:

    I have some questions for you to test your financial acumen:

    When a company earns more than analyst’s expectations I understand that it is considered a positive surprise.

    Questions:

    When a company loses more than analyst’s expectations, is it a positive surprise, too?

    When a company loses less than analyst’s expectations, is it a negative surprise?

    Kindest regards,

  • More Red Flags on Overstock's Earnings Report [View article]
    Msieber:

    Overstock.com's buyback program is a waste of shareholder's money in the long run. The company never had a profitable year and has reported only two profitable quarters Q4 2002 and Q4 2004. Those quarters were based on non-GAAP revenues and the amount of reported profits in those quarters are suspect.

    Berstock asks:

    "Are they really as BAD as you claim?"

    My response:
    Patrick Byrne and his crew are a lot worse liars than I have detailed to date. You'll have to wait for future blog posts to find out.

    C: "It's disgusting how he almost takes pride in flaunting that he is a criminal."

    I don't label myself as a convicted felon out of pride. I label myself as a convicted felon to disclose my background.

    B:

    I have a Bachelors Degree in Accounting and passed the CPA exam with a 90% average. However, I am no longer a CPA due to my criminal record. You can read about that issue on my blog.
