  • Recent Information Indicates Herbalife Has Data Which Can Resolve Its Legal Problems [View article]
    This is for decades a profit making company. Ackman and Einhorn have attacked it in order to make a profit on shorting. They both remind me of something I get on my boots when walking across a cattle pasture.We see capitalism being destroyed by speculators who will do anything to increase their stash. We no longer see the market pricing a stock on the basis of the performance of the company it represents, but rather by gonifim from NYC.

  • Judge Richard Sullivan has granted Greenlight Capital/David Einhorn's motion for a preliminary injunction on Apple's (AAPL +0.9%) bundled proposals (one of which asks for shareholder approval for the issuing of preferred stock) at its Wednesday shareholder meeting. Will Apple now request separate votes on the proposals? (previous) (more[View news story]
    If Einhorn is for something, I am against it. He does not know how
    to run a company but he knows how to destroy one.

  • Handicapping The Icahn Position In Herbalife [View article]
    A sad situation when the operation of a company is treated as irrelevant, but only quarreling short trades are attended to.
    The market is becoming postmodern.

  • Wells Fargo sees the dip in Whole Foods Market (WFM) as a good buying opportunity with its revised sales numbers a result of the higher payroll taxes hitting consumers instead of structural demand. The firm thinks the grocery store operator can improve its value proposition to improve growth rates back to previous levels. (WFM earnings: I, II[View news story]
    A Texas Libertarian who believes in treating both his employees
    and customers rightly, is well off the desiderata of the sharks who run Wall Street and are willing to destroy the country by financial scheming. It is the Einhorns and the Ackmans who destroy the efficiency of the market by shorting and then shouting "Gewalt!".
    People who Einhorn the markets are destroying capitalism and the country as well. Watch out ye Einhorim. There was a Weimar created by the likes of you, and the consequences were frightful.

  • Herbalife: Examining FTC Data And Potential Action [View article]
    Ackman and Einhorn are short trader manipulators who try and take down a real company owned by real IRAs owned by real people. They think they are allowed to get away with it. So far they have.

    I agree with your analysis. Ackman has cried fire in a jittery market
    when, in fact, there is no fire. Does the First Amendment give him the
    right to do so? He appears to be a fraudulent short trader. He should
    be subject not only to civil suit by Herbalife, but also to criminal charges by the federal government. Ditto for Einhorn. They give capitalism a bad name, these scheming manipulators of public opinion.

  • Herbalife: Have You Picked A Side? [View article]
    There is the notion that the market should reflect the reality of a company's performance. But there is the dark force represented
    by shortsellers Einhorn and Ackman. They interfere with the efficiency of the market. The American stock market pays
    attention to the shorters who sell short and then cry fire bin a manner calculated to make an artificial profit.What utility do they have to the rest of us? They represent a costly overhead to the market and to the country in general. I believe in cutting overhead .

  • In a meeting with investors, Greenlight Capital's David Einhorn acknowledges that he closed a short position in Herbalife (HLF -0.2%) for a profit last year. Einhorn, who questioned HLF in May about why they had stopped providing information tracking certain groups of its distributors in its filings, never said he had any position at the time, nor does he disclose the size of the profit or the position now. [View news story]
    Einhorn is a shark. He cries "Fire!" and makes money off the
    resulting panic.

  • Why Herbalife Is A Terrible Short And Terrible Long At The Same Time [View article]
    This does not help investors who were long in the stock before shark shorter Einhorn psychologically savaged the stock value. Then it
    largely recovered. Then Ackman had a run at HLF. Again it has
    gone a long way to recovery. It will be OK unless the shorting sharks are in cahoots with the regulators. A pox on all people like Einhorn
    and Ackman (just a small one).

  • Analysis Of Anne T. Coughlan's Herbalife Articles [View article]
    The stock has survived the macinations of Einhorn and Ackman.
    Many investors, however, have been undone by these two sharks.
