  • Herbalife's Astonishing Response [View article]
    I think the Herbalife story is about aggressive hedge fund behavior not multi-level
    marketing business models…it is a given that multi-level marketing and just
    the average small business failure is sky high..How many small business's fail in the
    first two years…or less?

    Herbalife multi-marketing model looks like a fast moving hamster wheel of people
    who sign on and fail…but is this perception a pyramid scheme?
    The most Herbalife might be guilty of is mis-leading advertising about success..but
    (their) terms and conditions point out the nothing is guaranteed..nothing in life
    is, right?

  • Time To Buy Apple [View article]
    Great article!...RE: EPS downside,if margins shrink..? If,If ..Apple
    does China Big..then the massive volume alone will make up for
    margin shrinkage in U.S. and EU for several which time
    it is hoped that both China and India's economies will have matured
    enough to handle wider margins and broader Apple product exposure

  • Apple: Zero Growth ... Really? [View article]
    Are any of the following mega money groups upset?
    Vanguard: 22 billion
    FMR LLC: 21.9 billion
    State Street:19.6 billion
    T.Rowe Price: 23.5 billion
    Susquehanna: 16.8 billion
    J.P. Morgan/Chase: 12.9 billion
    (very short list of investors).....
    Apple has lost about 40% of its market cap since the Dec. reporting
    so if we follow the money...what is really behind the drop in value?

    There are the obvious technical...measurable reasons for sure as
    shown here by Alpha's contributors...but is there something else...
    maybe an intangible reason for a huge drop in value? sentiment
    or even political...China , India...politics...entry into new territories for

    The mega groups mentioned have been very quite so far. ....are these
    major billion dollar international investment managers being patient
    because they are privy to international political negotiations that
    will be favorable to Apple?

  • Tim Cook's Improbable Victory In Washington [View article]
    Are both Parties testing the waters to allow American Companies
    to Repatriate their offshore money?
    The economy is on the mend and it sure wouldn't hurt our politicians
    to allow American Business to flood the our economy with pent-up
    Billions of dollars..

    It looks like it..Apple is the perfect political foil to go to Washington
    winning over Congress on this subject....

  • Samsung, Apple Still Solid Investments As They Continue To Dominate Handset Market [View article]
    I always find it troublesome when we compare Samsung to Apple..
    Samsung is a asian GE that tries to maintain industry dominance in
    the broad spectrum electric/electronic realms.. Samsung will always
    be hamstrung with the same problems that GE faces
