  • Citigroup: Investors Are Still Not Fully Understanding The Enormous Opportunity [View article]
    C news alert 7/22: Citi to shutter Banamex USA.

    Offices in California and Texas. I think most of their business is sending money to Mexico and now they are in the midst of a "money-laundering" probe. I lived in Mexico for many years and it was handy to have money sent the bank in L.A. and then transferred to my Banamex account in Mexico with a simple phone call, I imagine many Mexican nationals did the same. I wonder if this probe could hurt Citi ?

    Long C via short puts.

    I would be really surprised if the Mexican Cartels didn't have a "cozy" arrangement with all the banks in Mexico.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Lockheed Set To Buy Sikorsky For Over $8B [View article]
    A US citizen has been able to go to and leave Cuba freely when entering from Mexico or Canada for years - no problem, just have to buy Cuban convertible Pesos which is a rip off but the price one pays to see old Havana.

  • Everything About Herbalife Is Unsustainable [View article]
    Lending57 I don't think that I wear blinders, yeah I know the usual path for failed US legislators is to be lobbyist or join some law firm that represented an ex campaign contributor with deep pockets, it's a sleazy practice.

    What's Belgium law got to do with US law?
    My question is "where did this magical 18 month number come from (first time I have heard of it)? If the FTC was going to do anything it seems to me that they would have before now. Its interesting that HLF picks-up stray ex-FTC officials to tout their respectability but my guess is that Amway and Herbalife have crossed many palms with silver in D.C.. If there ever is a ruling I think it will be a humble suggestion how HLF might change some minor thing to be in compliance.

    yep, I did the same thing. I have talked to them a dozen times about it and I get a different unbelievable answer each time, I doubt that they are going to change.

    Yep I remember you selling those calls, I sold some shorter dated in-the-money calls which are underwater now a bit - it was a small position and the cash up front is nice. I probably will buy another small positions tomorrow and look at the call to see if I want to sell ITM or OTM calls.
    Thanks.

  • Global Dividend Dogs: Yields To 10.4%, Upsides To 48%, Net Gains To 52% For July [View article]
    Norway (STO) takes a big bite, can't remember how much but I took it out of my wife's IRA as there is no way to recoup the tax loss.
