    "I also believe that much of GMCR mistakes in accounting were just mistakes."

  • Harbin Electric Buyout Approved: Implications For U.S. Listed Chinese Stocks [View article]
    Fraud may not disappear into the night...

    http://www.theocc.com/

    NOTE: OCC has been informed by DTC that the paying agent has not yet funded DTC for the merger consideration of $24.00 cash. Consequently, OCC will delay settlement of HRBN exercise/assignment activity until confirmation is received that the cash consideration has been paid.

  • At $80 Netflix Is Priced For Disaster [View article]
    This is pathetic analysis and disturbing to know you could effect one soul with this garbage.

    Even disregarding the ponzi business model with "crafty" accounting to give off the illusion of profits the imaginary fundamentals of this company are dying. Subs have stalled and will obviously get worse as Amazon in particular as well as others have entered the space. And content costs are increasing wildly as their balance sheets display.

    This company is beyond a disaster at this point and any kind of money manager that can't recognize this should switch careers immediately.

    ffs the company is guiding losses next year, and in reality they are losing gobs of money now. So just imagine how dire it is...

  • Harbin Electric Buyout Approved: Implications For U.S. Listed Chinese Stocks [View article]
    Until late last week I had never involved myself in this stupid fraud. I did initiate a miniscule position via a put option days ago.

    The paranoia that evil short sellers are bringing down legitimate companies is also off the charts nowadays. People need to start doing some research and use common sense before posting. So much ignorance/foolishness exists nowadays, although not hard to see why with the insane level of corruption across the markets. Its almost all a game now.

    "Harbin is great example where the shorts bashed and planted disinformation horror stories about the company on many investment blogs"


    You can't be serious. Anyone with an IQ over 50 knows Harbin is a another shell fraud. The fact a fraudulent company is saved (potentially, this deal hasn't closed) by corruption doesn't prove Harbin was a legitimate company.

    The level of shenanigans going on in China is off the charts, even by today's pathetic/disgusting worldwide standards.

  • The Netflix Aftermath: Why This Presents A Short Opportunity [View article]
    Doesn't need to assume higher content costs, look at the balance sheet. A/P growing and off sheet content obligations exploding.

    They will need revenues to double/triple/quadruple to keep up with the ridiculous amount of money they have committed to spending. The company is a joke, has been a joke from the start. Well replace joke with wall street scam.

    Its outrageous that even at this stage this company commands a multi billion dollar market cap. I suppose the only reason is because it had an ABSURD 15 billion market cap only months ago. As the author states this company is worth absolutely nothing, technically worth negative. They'll need a secondary immediately to survive next year and I'd like to see who posts up for that.

  • Netflix Earnings Disaster, Calling The Short Of The Century [View article]
    You can't be serious. The company is running a business model based on the ole ponzi. This isn't a buy at 10 dollars, 1 dollar or 1 cent. The content deals they've signed are ludicrous, there is no way they'll live up to all the obligations. Look at A/P and the off sheet obligations in the past few quarters, they are exploding out of control. This at a time when revenue growth is stalling if not reversing. A/P now over 750 million and off sheet content deals totaling 3.5 billion.

    This pump and dump operation is clearly in the last stages of the dump. The whole international expansion is a smoke screen to give them an out when this thing totally collapses. The business isn't making any money domestically and it sure as heck isn't going to make a penny globally. Not to mention the numerous hurdles faced in other countries which won't even allow the illusion to last long (ie lovefilm owned by Amazon already in the UK).

  • Why Netflix Could Double Over The Next Year [View article]
    Nice to see one sane person here, its as if nobody actually looks at the balance sheet. The business model was never going to generate any profits and now that the peak of sub growth has occurred and it is the process of reversing the end will be rather swift with diminishing revenues unable to pay the obligations.

    This company is nothing but ANOTHER wall street ponzi. One of an endless list of current FMR led "momentum" stock frauds.

  • Amazon.com To Buy Netflix? Reed Hastings' Dream, Jeff Bezos' Nightmare [View article]
    I will rephrase, don't want to come off as a keyboard warrior. The article imo was idiotic, I will give the benefit to Pachter and assume he hit his head just before writing that piece! lol

    And yes the 2.44 billion, which has been exploding, is only going to get worse. Mad Men was added this quarter and I'm sure there were other deals that will find their way onto the books/off the book as well. Anyways that along with A/P will move higher and higher.

  • Amazon.com To Buy Netflix? Reed Hastings' Dream, Jeff Bezos' Nightmare [View article]
    Yes a small thing called profit margin. The actual net income they generate from revenues if extrapolated out over the term of the contracts appears to be negative. They have backloaded their debt and now its getting time to pay the piper. They will not have enough money to survive 2012 and that's assuming they keep the revenue stream (which they won't) they have going right now.

  • Amazon.com To Buy Netflix? Reed Hastings' Dream, Jeff Bezos' Nightmare [View article]
    I'm aware of his past analysis of NFLX but I'm sorry this opinion is absurd and lacks any common sense. There is no way someone should be paid to produce such garbage. And despite his bearish views on NFLX his price targets have always been rather puzzling high. If you do any in depth research on NFLX its clear its PT is zero. You can't bring up the exploding content obligations/accounting gimmicks and then say PT 200.

    Michael Pachter is either a complete idiot or a paid shill of NFLX. This idea is ludicrous to put it mildly and he should lose his job for proposing such insanity. Why would any legitimate company want to purchase a company in complete turmoil with a toxic balance sheet?

    For crying out loud Netflix is a scam breathing its last few breaths. If Amazon or another big player were to buy NFLX I would consider it criminal activity as the only purpose would be to cover up the crime that has been NFLX.

    *note Dish Network announcement tomorrow, that could cut NFLX's life span from a year or so to just months if they have something good to present.

  • How I Predicted Netflix's Fall, And Why Its Prospects Are Getting Worse [View article]
    I still don't get how even at this very advanced stage of the scam most people can't see this company is a joke which is going to go bankrupt within the next 12 months barring a secondary.

    ffs they have to pay up a billion dollars in the next year, money they won't have. Further obligations over a billion continue past 12 months. The business model is a ponzi, a dying ponzi now as subs defect and competitors (Dish Network due out with something this Friday) enter the space.

    If anybody offered me NFLX call options with a strike price of $1.00 to only be exercised in 2014 I wouldn't pay 1 penny for a million contracts.
