  • Cord-cutting affects AMC, CBS differently from Disney [View news story]
    Note the effect of major sports on the networks. Folks are willing to pay for live events.

    Disney has ESPN, but not as much actual NFL programming as CBS and Fox.

  • Herbalife, MLMs And The FTC: Some Questions And A Challenge For Market Analysts And The Financial Press [View article]
    It is PRECISELY how the bonus structure operates in practice and OTHER FACTS are the reason why the court ruled that Burnlounge was a bad actor but the INDUSTRY CHEERED.

    The industry cheered as the analysis required will exonerate the industry.

    So in YOUR OWN WORDS describe those facts that were critical to the analysis and if different would lead to a DIFFERENT OUTCOME. Unless you understand this concept, you really do not understand the courts rulling.

    "No, these are not sales to consumers. As the court in BurnLounge indicated, consumers are not participants in the organization. Again, please provide any data showing the margin HLF participants earn on sales to consumers."

    NO that is NOT what the court ruled.

    The court went through pages of analysis to say that BURNLOUNGE was a bad actor, but the industry cheered.

    Every case will be determined by the facts of the individual case, which is why it took PAGES for the court to discuss their analysis.

    you really do not understand the presumption of innocence

    but then again you also think the accusation is the same as declaring guilt and trials are apparently just for show

    and you ignore what the law ACTUALLY says instead of what you WANT the law to mean

    The circular argument is rampant

    - people fail because the business opportunity is fraudulent because people fail.

    The circle is broken when the success or failure of the business opportunity is based on the people's definition of success instead of yours.

    The business opportunity is NOT fraudulent unless it meets certain criteria defined by the court.

    Note also the stats provided by Herbalife do NOT include any RETAIL sales.

  • CVS Poised To Experience Growth With Its Target And Omnicare Deals [View article]
    "Unfortunately, the stock market reacted negatively to CVS' slowdown in its retail pharmacy segment, as operating profits in the segment fell by 1.4%. See, this is the segment which took the force of the company's decision to discontinue cigarette sales."

    That was a strategic decision on their part and they are suffering the consequences of that decision in the short term. How much that hurts long term may be debatable.

    Yet this mirrors many restaurants who decided to go smoke free. Their sales fell as patrons shifted to other places. The response was to change the laws so that people did not have the choice and those original places did not have to bear the sales shifts.

    The only thing was that OTHER RESTAURANTS then had to suffer opportunity losses based on a decision that they did NOT support.

    I suggested your criteria for being considered a "verified victim" was of a nature that eliminates everyone, which is why you keep saying there are no victims.


    As opposed to have a definition of a victim that includes virtually anybody WITHOUT REGARD TO FACTS OR THE LAW

    yes Willy has made the claim many, many, MANY, times but does not then discuss the ANALYSIS that the court conducted and wrote about for PAGES of the same decision.

    - What were the FACTS that led to the decision abut the ultimate user?
    - What facts IF DIFFERENT would lead the same court to come to a DIFFERENT CONCLUSION.

    Burnlounge was a bad actor, but the industry cheered. The industry cheered BECAUSE they understood the analysis.

  • SMTP, Inc. Announces Proposed Public Offering of Common Stock [View article]
    One of the complaints about the firm in the past was the domination of the major shareholder.

    The firm has added to the management and now the major stockholder is reducing his controlling interest and that will broaden the shareholder base.
