  • For Tesla Shorts, The Stock Price Is Just Part Of The Problem [View article]
    if the jan 14 90 option combo trades at four dollars under on the close it means. synthetic stock is 86 dollars. 92.25 -86.00 is 6.25..6.25 for for 246 days on 90 dollars isn't close to 34percent annual juice..its more like 10 percent... you cant look at the daily borrow rate and extrapolate that forward and assume an annual rate, because a short could lock in a 10 percent rate for 246 days

  • How The Herbalife Short Squeeze Would Work [View article]
    matt i was a options floor trader for 20 years and i know i had tons of risk of going into default if i shorted stock i couldnt come up with.but .ackman situation has to be different, he is no fool and has smart people working for him , there is now way he would short this stock and let the world know if he didn t have some back door agreement with fidelity locking him into a short stock agreement with no recall.your 100% correct..and loeb knows this too ,my guess is he is out of his long or close to it, the only short squeezing thats gonna happen is the public that shorts

    no he buddies with loeb..but il bet loebs out of his long by now,he only got long has a temporary hedge to his short nus position..think about it he short millions of shares of nus., loeb gets to cover a small piece of his nus short on the december sell off but way more hlf traded on that day so he buys hlf as a temporary pairs trade..then he dumps his hlf for a profit and nus gonna get wrecked when he comes out against hlf

  • How The Herbalife Short Squeeze Would Work [View article]
    when you short a stock that is hard to borrow, you have to pay extra, the amount changes on how much others are willing to pay to stay short it,currently hlf costs about 20% to be short.so, you pay all dividends plus a 20% rate to stay short hlf as the stock gets harder to borrow your clearing firm can even raise that rate or worse if they cant find lenders they will buy your short back at the market.hence when your short you have no control. who ever loaned ackman 20 million shares if they pull there loan he will have to buy back his shorts within 3 days,thats why icahn says he crazy..the stocks you shorted in the past werent hard to borrow,in fact most stocks pay you some interest when your short

  • Smoke And Mirrors In The Herbalife Saga [View article]
    kinda curios how loeb was all prepared to buy on the sell off,like he had his thesis done in advance, then when the short squeeze and ,buyback news hit the stock sold off, ??? did these two just pull off a conspiracy,ackman knows he cant buy the sell off on his presentation but loeb can ,then when the public gets long loeb dumps his position capping the rally so ackmans safe, netting 300 million..who takes a vacation right after stirring the pot like this ? ????? be interesting to see loebs position now >

  • Herbalife Is A Short - Goodwill Hunting [View article]
    why do people justify the company for being in existence for 32 years.
    thats the point it takes time for a scheme like this to run a muck, the sucker list went from 10 suckers looking for 1000 suckers to 1 mill suckers looking for 10 mil suckers. the question is how many suckers are left in the world ? before its game over. i heard bernie madoff is lookig for a roomate at Butner or sir allen might need one at coleman.
    I wonder if there is an insider about to jump ship, the first one gets the deal from the feds.

    because the author says because of the deal pure copper bets were roating out of fcx and into scco for a pure copper play, of course if you count the deal scco has done better

    the deal was way overpriced,so buying fcx for increased diversification makes no sense, its like pricing oil at 100 and nat gas at 4.50.it was insiders giving the select few a special dividend ahead of capital gains increase. so, just give it time and fcx will way under perform scco
