    They did not sell. They're registering with the SEC. Learn.

    Registering is not selling, nor is it the intention to sell. ANY shares that can be registered must eventually be registered. SEC registration is a typical course of action for any company. Learn.

  • Why MusclePharm Could Go From $4 To $20 [View article]
    You're right. MusclePharm isn't improving revenues by hundreds of percentage points every year. ????? Do you know how to read income statements year-over-year? The product is selling like crazy. You're wrong. Do math.

  • McDonald's Profit Margins Are Going Down [View article]
    The elephant in the room has not been named: MCCAFE. Don't you understand? As profit margins go down over the long-haul, McDonald's will suddenly innovate with something brand new that gives it massive profitability. Everyone was negative on McD's, and then McD's blew everyone out of the water with McCafe. Now margins are going down. Oh no! It must be overvalued. Wrong. McD's marketing R&D department is the top in the world. They'll launch some unexpected campaign in the next 12 months that will astound and amaze everyone, just like they always have. Far better shorts out there, far far better.

    How? Go to Yahoo Finance, type in the symbol, and you'll get the same information. Anyway, Seeking Alpha has changed their policies after all of these ticker-spam articles, thankfully. No more of this junk anymore.

    Riiiight. Ah yes, the utopic "Town Square" where all dapper chaps and damsels would congregate to sip tea and discuss goings-on in the forum whilst frolicking through JCP's boutiques. Great idea, not a great business. Obviously. Nothing to show for it yet except for a "dream."

  • Why MusclePharm Could Go From $4 To $20 [View article]
    And why else would a company doing $70M+ in annual revenues have a market cap of $15M? Debt and capital issues, obviously. John, I appreciate this article, and I hear what you are saying in terms of the potential here if the company can renegotiate debt and clean up its capital structure. Suddenly, like you say, $5/share can turn into $20/share (can turn in to $60/share) just based on a P/E of 1 or 2. The revenues are terrific here, there's no question. It's only a question of whether the company can now leverage its revenues to trim back interest payments, costs and old debt overhang. A company selling this much product is going to have new power for some very interesting renegotiations in 2013. MusclePharm got taken to the cleaners in '09, '10, and '11. The stock chart is horrible up to this point. But for investors entering now--at this rock-bottom late-in-the-game phase--the risk:reward actually looks decent. Revenue is completely phenomenal, product is actually selling, and it's enough to give this company a real chance at a comeback. Even if it makes half a comeback, MusclePharm could triple. It's just a math exercise.

    The split-adjusted price was around $4.50 when the merger became effective. It's trading roughly flat on a split-adjusted basis.

  • Why MGT Lawsuit Could Provide A 2X Near-Term Return [View article]
    Slot machines without an internal Random Number Generator (RNG) and instead controlled by a central server are commonly called recinos. The '088 patent does not extend to recinos, and MGT is not suing recinos manufacturers nor operators. MGT is only suing those games that it believe infringe upon its patents (after months of discussion with top counsel in the space). If the bonus event does not occur on a shared screen, it does not infringe upon the patent.

    You mean progressive games? This article is not about progressives. Read the patent again, and check the names listed in the lawsuit: Battleship, Clue, Paradise Fishing, etc. Also note that progressive machines are noted in the '088 patent filing.

    The '088 patent is for a separate bonusing event altogether, not a progressive jackpot that is a part of individual play.

  • Pershing Gold - Don't Bet On The Project, Bet On The People [View article]
    I don't think my comment through last time. Rather than re-writing, it's obvious that the filing doesn't mean the shareholders are "selling" except according to the letter of the law. CRGC is a non-operating entity that is being dissolved, and PGLC is wrapping up its capital structure obligations. It's a prospectus for the SEC registration statement. Look at the price. Price action speaks for itself.

  • Will Facebook Investors Like Gifts? [View article]
    After reading a couple sentences of the introduction, it was clear this author had no idea how to perform deep analysis. "Oh, lot's of people like Facebook." "Oh, a stock is different from a company."

    Please add value. How did this article help anyone? Noise.
