  • MusclePharm's (MSLP) CEO Brad Pyatt on Q2 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    Illuminati - That's the one that got me too. If I hadn't bought more shares at $2.50 to average out I'd be in a world of hurt.

    I'll check out the book! There is quite a bit going on for the company, however now more than ever, finite execution is going to be required to ensure they can put out all of these products successfully (I've been waiting for Coco Protein ever since it's 1 week debut at costco - test run so I was told by an employee).

    My thought is simply this. The company needs a turn around to be successful, why wait for that when I can put my money to much better use at an already successful company that's on sale. Especially in this macro environment.

    There are better places for your funds than in Brads hands. Even buyout value in this depressed market wouldn't probably see more than $15/sh - and that's with the SEC issue resolved (which has no clear timeline). Couple that with ongoing bad press and poor choice in market (paying athletes, some non prime athletes at that, too much instead of getting the product in peoples faces, in stomachs, building preference, and on shelves).

    Everyone know's it's a gamble with this company. It's odds are long, and the payout is a maybe. Be smart take the better odds.

    After some long consternation I've concluded this value trap will never be disarmed. Despite anyones best efforts.

    Goodbye to all my shares! Brad, you still suck!

    I plan to. Just trying to make sure you understand where all your money went when you see this steaming pile fail to deliver!

    Brad has no joke, taken cash money from company funds to spend on personal business.

    This man literally stole from the company. Actually, as in real life took money.

    Belief in him is like believing the crack head on the corner just needs money for food. You can be ignorant if you want, but at the end of the day the reality will eventually come home to roost when you get mugged by said crackhead.

    The logic based on value is pretty solid (.25 rev is super cheap!). However the SEC investigation hangs over this company, and will continue to for some time (years maybe) and that will prevent anyone from buying it.

    The only way anyone is going to see a higher share price in the near term is if the company actually starts to deliver in terms of EPS and cost controls. Which EVERY SINGLE TIME Brad has chosen to pay himself before the share holders.

    Please tell me how the guy who EVERY SINGLE TIME has rewarded himself over you is going to deliver in your favor anytime in the next two quarters?

    The odds are 99 to 1 and you're betting on the 1.

    The only person on that call who seemed to give half a sh** was Estalella.

    Business is like a basketball game where you get the ball back if you score.

    Turning a shitty manager with a shitty agenda into a good manager with an aligned agenda is goddamn near impossible. The ONLY way this company is ever going to get to a point where it is profitable is if they completely gut the management team.

    My cost average is about $9 after loading up at $2.50 to cushion the blow. I pray to god every night that this hits $7 so I can dump it at a less catastrophic loss.

    This is very true. They've been given a great boon in experienced assistance. If they F it up I wouldn't be surprised though.

    Did you listen to that call? Brad sounded like a zombie, completely dialing it in.

    Mark these words, they are wise "This company may never make it, in the long run. But I do believe there will be better times for the near future.. Risky, yes.. Potential, yes.."

  • Can Wynnefield Capital Create A Culture Of Accountability At MusclePharm? [View article]
    I found that really awesome, and also ironic. Brad has never taken any steps to address any questions. Cutting the call one quarter, the same old BS on the conference calls.

    No matter what anyone anywhere tells you this guy is actively working against his shareholders. He'll stuff his pockets at everyone's (including his ironicially) expense.
