  • Ackman's Secret Herbalife Grand Slam That The World Didn't Notice [View article]
    One of the silliest comments about bottom of pyramid being referred to a a pyramid scheme!? Arent you familiar with the pyramid used in health, foods, etc? Wow! unbelievable how the shorts like QTR, BA, have been trying to falsely portray an organization. Comparing it to Enron, stamping stomping screaming fraud to justify financial gains from poor judgemental errors! Wake up guys. Stop the melodrama and corporate bashing. I doubt the FTC, SEC, DOJ, etc.....are going to burn their image and budgets with an Anti-HLF campign. They have much more important tasks to chew on than chase a Bill Ackman song and dance. I hope they are much more savvy than that.

  • Herbalife Sets the Record Straight Regarding Continuing Attacks From Pershing Square and Its Paid Supporters [View article]
    The proof is always in the pudding. If none of the folks who consistently bash HLF have tried it's products, and spoken to the really successful and happy HLF cohorts, they will not be making a mockery of themselves! $50 million of investor money to investigate HLF is nothing short of poor use of AUM and further declining returns, when the shorts are desperately covered?

  • Herbalife bulls get a boost from Mr. Icahn [View news story]
    Great perspective, which is true. Appreciate the timing of your discussion. Many have come out of their rut by hope, faith, and potential to improve their lives. HLF, Amway, Avon, so many other companies give this opportunity to such folks. Agreed, there could be room to change some aspects of the corporate culture and allow sufficient room and support for everyone in the HLF train to have parallel opportunities. HLF and other MLMs have spread aroiund the world and I know several who have improved their well being, in terms of health and fitness, and additilonal earning capacity to supplement thier lives for themselves nad theor families. There is no point beating the hell out of a company, like some shorts do, to benefit themselves financially. Let there be a fair environment where everyone has a shot at financial well being. Stop bashing a company for selfish motives.

  • Unconventional ETF Profit Extraction: In 2 Years UDOW +134%, S&P Is Riskier And Only +43% [View article]

    Interesting read.Little over my hand, but I started to come to terms slowly. When is your site coming up and what is the url? Looking at the way S&P, DOW, and NASDQ have moved in 2013, and the way they are in 2014 thus far, how can one leverage their returns upwards with UDOW and the timing of entry? What portfolio size would be a cautious, yet prudent commitment? Hope I am not sounding wierd!

  • BlackBerry's Blunder In India [View article]
    People with inaccurate information & ideas about India should research first before commenting. India has an astounding explosion of wealthy Middle Class which is growing in leaps and bounds. The purchasing power has grown exponentially. Indians own some of the most expensive homes and automobiles. So owning high tech expensive gadgets is not difficult to swallow. Have you been to some of their mind bogghling hotels and beach resorts? No hotel in the US or Euorpe even comes close to comparison. Sure there is poverty on the rise as well, and conjestion and traffic cloud these scenrios, but no denying the fact that there is economic explosion. Brain power is among the highest in the world, and there is no wonder why multinationals have been rushing to establish their Asian Head Quarters there.
