  • Herbalife: Time To Look At The Long Side Again [View article]
    Macrotrader, while you are thumbing your nose at the regulators, please don't forget that a fine most likely will go with a massive cease-and-desist order. Lets see what that will do to the business plan of the good ship Herbalife.

    Macrotrader, yes, I am short the stock, out of conviction. I also find that your "most likely scenario" leaves a lot open in terms of ethic commitment. You basically admit that HLF has a questionable business plan that most likely deserves a fine and "supervision". Also you believe the FTC's motivation is not to do the right thing, rather to maintain "credibility". Do you sometimes stop to think how you would explain this to your children? And this is not "comical".

    In his investment thesis the author totally forgets the predatory, immoral business plan of the company. He might as well suggest to invest in the Mafia, since that is where the money is being made, and that for many years also.

  • Herbalife's Books Need To Be Re-Audited By PwC And Looked At By The SEC [View article]
    QtR, I fail to see what the Chinese angle in accounting has to do with PWC's audit. I am not sure if this is material to US accounting standards, or convince me otherwise. Besides this, a re-audit is pointless anyway since the company should be put into receivership once the prosecution starts under the RICO act. Lastly, I also shortened in the pre-market today.

  • Herbalife: He Who Laughs Last, Laughs Best [View article]
    George, how can you seriously speak of a buying opportunity when the company might well be under investigation by a number of regulatory and judicial entities? The only possible advise is: stay clear and observe. You were on my preferred authors list but you just totally discredited yourself as an analyst.

  • Tesla building Chinese charging network [View news story]
    "....says it's building a network of local EV charging stations, much as it's doing in the U.S. and Europe." Not quite, this is very regional only. They will need a lot of chargers to sell a reasonable number of cars.

  • Top 5 Absurd Carl Icahn Quotes About Herbalife [View article]
    I am sure Icahn by playing incompetent as to the machinations of HLF is laying the groundwork for a future "I did not know" defense when it comes to insider liability.

    TeslaMania, so the market is rigged and all short sellers are bad but you are a sophisticated investor? Feel free to buy more stock, all my puts are in the money now, but I am just an unsophisticated evil short selling stock manipulator.

  • Tesla - 20 Key Risks That Longs Are Ignoring [View article]
    Mai, if your are discussing risks, "could" is the proper language to describe an eventuality. So ridiculing "could" shows your inexperience in any type of risk management. So I suggest you not only "could" buy more stock at these levels, you "must" to take yourself serious.
