  • Insiders Are Selling Apple [View article]
    The average cash amount for each 3 executives' sale of shares is over 1 million dollars. That is not peanuts to most people. The fact that no one is buying says a lot as well, since the bullish case is that this is a possible two-bagger, unlike the other QE-bloated mega cap tech stocks. I would wait for the next earnings report, I expect AAPL to headed back where it belongs in the 400-300s in 2014.

  • Time To Buy Cypress Semiconductor [View article]
    Ashraf, I read SA to day trade the ostensibly value-based articles, like this one. It will probably go up Monday and then sell off deeper afterwards.

  • Time To Buy Cypress Semiconductor [View article]
    Ashraf was saying the same thing last fall encouraging people to buy AAPL before it had bottomed out around $400. I am highly skeptical of this sort of SA pump piece.

  • Insiders Are Buying BioTime: Should You? [View article]
    This insider buying mentioned here is miniscule compared to any bullish example I have read of. A good textbook example of insider buying is Opko Health Inc (OPK) As of last March CEO Phillip Frost owned 121 million shares. There are only 336 million shares outstanding..that's nearly 33% of all shares..an extreme example but still the level of insider buying mentioned in this article is miniscule and the author's purpose and the premises of the article deserve criticism.

  • Insiders Are Buying BioTime: Should You? [View article]
    I agree with Brian. This looks more like an excuse to publish an article than substantial or useful information.

  • Is Herbalife A Fraud? That Is The Question [View article]
    The author of this article is out for a buck. If this was a well-reasoned position he would be refuting the critics soundly...greed is the primary motivation for HLF critics even more than for HLF bulls.

  • Is Herbalife A Fraud? That Is The Question [View article]
    The question the author overlooked is: "If Herbalife is a fraud and pyramid scheme (as the USA defines it), how many other companies are also frauds and pyramid schemes worthy of having the SEC shut them down?" Why just single out Herbalife? Greed on both sides here..

  • Forget Whole Foods: This Stock Yields 6.4% And Could Jump 250% [View article]
    Yuppies like the widespread appeal of the Whole Foods brand. It's kind of reckless to buy Roundy's just based on one metric, the forward P/E, which the analysts could be totally off on.

  • A New 8% Yielder Paying Every Month [View article]
    You are recommending a penny stock for the dividend? That defies logic.

  • Reasons To Add Facebook To Your Stock Portfolio [View article]
    Elisa, what is your estimated intrinsic value of Facebook? You made a good point about value investors seeing FB as overpriced at the IPO. If revenue declined much more in 2012 than has been recovered in 2013, then savvy investors, insiders included, saw Facebook as being overpriced when it was at 29 earlier this month.

    FB is a trading stock, not a stock to invest in.

  • Arena Is Still A Great Short [View article]
    If ARNA is "a great short" how come I've never been able to borrow shares from any of the major brokerages to short it?

  • Arena Pharmaceuticals - Out To Launch Or Out To Lunch? [View article]
    Spencer, what's the cost basis on your ARNA shares? Being long at $10 or $1 per share would totally alter one's outlook here.

  • Schadenfreude Suits Me Just Fine [View article]
    Selling FB puts sounds good but without some rational reasons it's not worth publishing an article. For the reader's edification please explain your rationale as to why FB will drop in the coming week other than a hunch.

  • Watch Out AT&T: Facebook Could Take Over The Smartphone [View article]
    How was the $40 IPO accurate? You contradict yourself with the sentences you write after that statement.
