  • Ouellet Roulette 4 comments
    Feb 16, 2013 4:42 AM | about stocks: HLF

    I've got Marc Ouellet as the next Pope based mostly on "Pope Ouellet" having a nice ring to it - my friends and I drafted Popes-to-be in a pool.

    It got me thinking about our various past wagers on world events and how often a "binary event" turned out to have an unforeseen outcome. What will happen in a 50/50 event has some new factor come out of left field and leaves the thesis of the original wager somewhat meaningless.

    I'm wondering if Herbalife (HLF) might end that way - no bang, no whimper, just a long drawn-out compromise of some sort.

    We will see.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

    Additional disclosure: I am long Marc Ouellet

    Themes: Marc Ouellet, Pope Stocks: HLF

  • Okay, "Dark Clouds for the Blue Oval" currently ranks as the best title of an SA article so far this year. "Pope Draft and Some Third Thing" has to be among the worst. Granted, this isn't exactly an article, but, c'mon, Joe. How about Ouellet Roulette?
