  • Globalstar: TLPS In Perspective [View article]
    "Anybody can become angry - that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right degree and at the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way - that is not within everybody's power and is not easy."

    OK, search NOPR and see what you get. Then search NPRM and see what you get. BTW, FTR - LOL.

    I'm not ready to say Seeking Alpha is part of this conspiracy without more information - but there does seem to be some concerns about the author of this article, given his strong ties to China perhaps? Pearson is a better writer than Adrangi by far, and probably a better public speaker, IMO.

    When it comes to misdirection and self-serving, Pearson and Adrangi come out about equal in many ways. Perhaps Cramer was their inspiration and mentor (in secret abstention?) But take a look at this video to see if you don't find some like thinking and action to what Cramer describes. Cramer says he won't say this on TV, and I doubt these authors would say such a thing in public either.

    Hear what Cramer has to say about how to deal with TRUTH from any short hedge fund perspective, especially if those funds think they are about to lose money: "What would you do?"

  • Cramer's Mad Money - I'm Sorry I Ever Heard Of Globalstar (11/14/14) [View article]
    Timing is everything, especially if a position of a hedge fund is at stake according to Cramer. "You do this. If you aren't prepared to do this, then maybe you don't belong in the business." - Cramer. So somebody pushed a button and made a few phone calls if they were following their playbook.

    Over $3 dollars and shorts would have been getting margin calls from their brokers or being closed out automatically. There wasn't much time left to break the price downward. There are call and put options that expire on certain dates. CNBC should look into the timing of the Mad Money statements, "I wish I'd never heard of them." etc.- those words were material market movers, IMO. Was there a deadline that required that or could it have been handled more professionally? What was the audience and does CNBC want retail investors to watch CNBC or not?

    One thing that did change materially was that Jay Monroe was able to start buying shares after he had been prevented by stock market rules related to the quarterly report that stop insider activity for a period of time.

    The short attack was designed around that 'opportunity' and got cornered when the Quarterly report was moved up on the calendar, ending the lock out. Cramer probably wouldn't know anything about that though, I suppose.

    That's what Cramer calls a "Good Game" in the video link I posted. I think he says also, approximately, "It has nothing to do with the company." or "It has nothing to do with Fundamentals", so many Cramer insights such as his remarks on the RIM shares and quarterly results.

    How do you do a story on a company and not talk to them? Answer, you just do it that way. Of course, I don't think Cramer was exactly thinking that Jay Monroe would call him up on the phone and request to be on the show. Cramer could hardly say No in that situation.

    I suppose what Cramer does on his free time is his business too. But in the video on You-Tube he mentions CNBC as a great place for a Hedge Fund Short to attempt to reach an audience with untruthful material. CNBC might frown on such outside promotion by Cramer, you think? That is not the purpose of CNBC disclaimers that don't actually have any cover for opinions and comments made by Cramer away from work.

    Interesting that Cramer indicates what he would and would not say on TV, but recommends it to others and talks about what and how he has done things. Is that a double standard?

    Should have no problem viewing it on You-Tube if you search for the following:

    Jim Cramer Explains How The Stock Market Is Manipulated

    You will then see several choices - obviously it will be the one with the same description as the search string.

  • Globalstar TLPS - You're Kidding, Right? [View article]
    But Akin disclosed that he was getting paid by a short, so he knew pretty well what sort of report to write for his client. I don't have any problem with Mr Akin getting paid like that.

    Sahm Adrangi got exactly what he wanted from Akin, and hopefully their will be some money in that new brokerage account from it eventually.

    I was just trying to help Akin understand how Short Hedge Funds such as his client Kerrisdale operate almost to an exact pattern as laid out in that near monologue video featuring Cramer explaining how attack a company such as Globalstar.

    Currently nothing in your stock account, not even cash? So is Kerrisdale paying you in shares? Geez I hope you billed Adrangi before you turned in your contacted paper, you might wonder if his balance sheet has problems or that entire KDkid operation could be going unstable. High risk short underway and Adrangi might be worth zero before long, IMO from having studied how he manipulates his techniques.

    Take a look at this advice aimed at Short Hedge funds in Cramer's own words:

    Cramer says he would not say that on TV, but UHMM, Ahhh, it sounds almost like a page out of Adrangi's playbook. If you haven't been in the stock market, you probably don't even know if you are being played like a 'useful idiot' as they sometimes say. Cramer refers to them a "Bozo Reporters" in the video.

    When you say you've never traded a single stock in your entire life, I believe you hands down. Nobody trades a single share, it's mostly 100 shares or higher. But then, you could be KDkid Kidding Me, Right?

    Good disclosure at the start of your paid consultant piece, and your promotional ad for your services was a nice touch. Sorry, but I won't be needing your services, I'd be looking for someone a bit more qualified and stock market experienced, but you probably were just exactly the guy Adrangi was shopping around to find.

    Welcome to investing.

  • Globalstar dives after Cramer says stay away (yesterday) [View news story]
    Watch this video completely, though the image quality is low, and after you hear Cramer talk about himself - then tell me who you believe?

    Cramer: "I won't say this on TV." So many interesting quotes on ethics.

    CNBC ought to review it's choice of program hosts.

    CNBC is the company with the most to lose in this Battle Ground, based on the Mad Money show host and his behavior.

    For example: view the real Jim Cramer saying "I would never say this on TV."

    The video is fuzzy, but combined with the sound track you may wonder about CNBC as a source of stock information - the value of Mad Money - but see for yourself when you complete watching this short video: (copy / paste / click / whatever ! )

    There are so many admissions by Cramer in this video, ie Cramer recommends "Or better yet you get 'the lie' on CNBC." on how to drive prices. Almost every sentence that comes out of his mouth during this interview shows exactly how the KD short is organized against the truth in order to enrich their fund at the expense of Globalstar investors.

    It is also interesting how Cramer describes what you do as a short hedge fund when the shorting firm is in danger - lie, break the law, do whatever you have to do to save yourself. So what, 'a few weeks later Buyers might wake up and realize it was all a lie' and 'then you get some cheap common shares and ride up on the other side.' Hear it in his own candid self-portrait with his words.

    Is Cramer a man anyone can trust? Does he represent CNBC? How is that possible and why does it continue? Contact CNBC with your opinion.

    Kerrisdale Capital Admits To Making Market Moving Rumors

    Starting at approximately 1 minute 20 seconds into the Oct 6th streaming presentation by Sahm Andrangi he says:
    "Today we are presenting OUR best short we've come across since OUR time exposing U.S. listed Chinese fraud. This business currently trades in a market capitalization of approximately $3.5 billion dollars. UHM, prior to OUR RUMORS circulating last week that we were going to be presenting on it, it was trading on a market cap of $4.5 billion dollars."

    How did you like the sound of that? Throughout his presentation he spends a lot of time talking in the first person plural about 'Our ... this and ... Our that...' So his words are very revealing from the start where he admits up front that Kerrisdale involved itself in a market moving rumor. Cut and dried.

    The Kerrisdale / Andrangi presentation video is still up via his Twitter account, and I have an archived copy for future reference.

  • Clearwire Playing For Time It Doesn't Have [View article]
    Notice you don't disclose your interests or stock holdings with your free advice.

    It's also interesting to note how you say the two companies have been doing so well this year, but somehow on this deal you think it is Clearwire that is running out of time. Please explain how it is that you think Sprint is not running out of time at the same pace?

    Some would say, "Value for Value, Deal for Deal, and Time for Time." When they are equal and doing so well together, only then it can be decided who likes what or what is best for anyone, otherwise be leery of giving advice, and crow later.

  • Time To Take Some Profits In Nokia [View article]
    10 Big Green Bugs ! Maybe, at least best of breed now to start.

    Always an optimist, I bought NOK today because the 920T is TD-LTE, and China Mobile is totally leading the market with that high capacity data network development, designed to out perform the competition hands down on video and image delivery by orders of magnitude faster. Add the China Mobile paid subsidy on 920T long term contracts first to market, that being something even Apple has not been able to achieve in China.

    NOK now entered at an open door in a vast market of 600 million customers and a network that dwarfs every metric in the U.S.A. telecom sector.

    Nokia has developed a world class phone in a growing world network standard TD-LTE environment, bringing it ahead of the competitive entry curve for profit growth that can not be matched by FD-LTE services. This is ramping up to be disruptive.

    I'm not a bit hesitant to buy these shares as I did today.
