Ackman’s BLUFF not working

6/10/2017

Herbalife Bulls still in charge. Ackman is barely holding on to his reckless HLF short position by his fingernails.

 

Billy boy Ackman, the modern day version of PT Barnum sure knows how to excite the naive, the newbies, the “rookies” but  does he ever follow through? Nope. Case in point, the 2014 “Herbalife Deathblow” (hahahahahahahahahahahaha) It was a deathblow for Ackman and the shorts.

And more recently ‘Betting on Zero’ the cinematic informercial apparently financed by Ackman which as we predicted turned into a total bomb. Opened in 5 theaters, had a very short run and all theatres dropped it. Now it is available on netflix. But who cares?

“Betting on Zero’ is worthy of the “GOLDEN TURKEY AWARD” And the turkeys are still trying to hype it. Good luck, Turkey.

And even though it was a very low budget, inexpensively and poorly produced film seen by so few, ‘Betting on Zero’ qualifies to be on the “Hall of Shame” list. And appropiate for the “Golden Turkey Award”

Also of interest is that Chris Irons aka quoththeraven (or is that quoththemoron) is always so anxious to debate someone. But how does he debate? He creates dozens upon dozens if not hundreds of aliases and then disseminates total b.s. trying to support his misguided thesis which is just a rehash of Ackman’s and Shane Dineen’s already debunked and disproven thesis.  Irons is just a broke version of Ackman. A lot of hot air and no  substance…….ever. There is a rumor that he is moving his one man operation quoththeraven research (LOL) out of his mobile home and into his parents basement.

While I would never want to play poker against Bill Ackman, he maintains a great poker face and bullsh’ts so much,   it is soooo easy to predict his fake outs in the stock market. He knows how to bluff and has been deservedly been called “A Modern Day Version of PT Barnum.”

And he has his shills writing garbage on blogs like “Traders piling on short interest” A few years ago the storyline read, “AGs piling on Herbalife” Fact: There were two AGs that went after Herbalife, both were friends of Ackman and both dropped their complaints after it became evident that Ackman was full of crap.

The short interest on HLF is 90%+ Ackman. He is hoping to bring in more traders (suckers) to help save his unsavable and reckless HLF short play. Never fear. Ackman will lose. Just like VRX.

Ackman continues to say he is bearish on HLF and will maintain his HLF short play ’till the ends of the earth’ or did he mean the end of Pershing Square?  The end of Pershing Sq  will come first. Say hello to Gotham Partners II.

How worried am I about Ackman and his lies? I have been long for 10 years now. Am still long and in fact increased my HLF position. Bought more shares of HLF and LEAPS (calls) and sold LEAPS (puts) I see HLF as being very oversold.

As for the latest “news” about Herbalife, insiders selling and some execs leaving, HELLO??? This happens everyday in America and around the world. execs leave for a lot of reasons and insiders sell. Many times, insiders sell and then buy back in later. Not a big deal for those of us who have been in the game for awhile, Newbies, rookies and those who know better but lie, lie, lie tell a different story.

A CHALLENGE TO BILL ACKMAN: Put Up or Shut Up!

Earlier this week Ackman shouted that he is still bearish on HLF and so convinced that Herbalife is a “pyramid scheme” and cratering that he picked up more short shares.  Unfortunately there is no proof that he shorted anymore at all. Not even with Persh Sq.

And this is so much like PT Ackman. Last February, he told us he was so bullish on VRX and so confident in the ownership, the products, the company and that it was a strong turn around candidate that he was going to buy even more shares. Now we know he doubled down on VRX A COUPLE of times and did buy more shares as VRX was cratering. But this wasn’t the case in February. What happened? After shooting his mouth off, Ackman dumped his whole load of VRX selling everything to the tune of a massive $4 BILLION LOSS!

But hey he said he was bullish and buying more right? Like I and many others have been saying for years. Ackman is a lying fraud. His word is not his bond. He will do the same to HLF shorts. Tell you he is shorting more in the hope that he will convince some suckers to go short and longs to sell and then he will cover and run for the hills.

Simple challenge Billy boy. If you are truly convinced that Herbalife is in as deep of trouble as you try to suggest, then by all means SHORT MORE HLF stock. IN fact bet the house on HLF short play. Bet everything you have. Why not if you think Herbalife is falling apart. But ah, you won’t because Billy boy we know that you really intend to cover a.s.a.p and that Herbalife is NOT in any real trouble. You know that as well no matter what you try to imply.

How about it Billy boy. Put up or shut up.

Even I have to admit, Billy Ackman certaintly deserves the title, “Modern Day Version of PT Barnum.” Nobody in the investment world puts on a better show than PT Ackman. And he is all show and no go.

http://www.therealbillackman.com

For the past 2 1/2 years we have been hearing from Ackman what a great investment he made in Valeant. Great company. Strong team. Great leadership. Great products. ENT! What really happened? Stock continued to fall and the more it fell the more PT Ackman continued to hype it and he even doubled down. He bought more. VRX dropped again. And PT Ackman bought more.

Up untill February, Ackman said he was very bullish on VRX as a stock and Valeant as a company. But. In February he exited with little notice and only after still saying he was bullish earlier that day.

By the way, Ackman took a $4 billion loss on that reckless trade that he was so bullish on and kept trying to persuade (sucker) other investors to come into. Now he is trying to sucker other investors to come in to rescue his reckless HLF short play.

That brings us to Herbalife (HLF) we all know that Ackman loudly and proudly proclaimed that he is so certain that Herbalife (HLF) is going to fall, that he shorted more. WOW! What a guy! What bravado!

But doesn’t this sound all too familiar? How many times does Billy boy have to cry wolf before the suckers pick up on it?

Did we forget the 2014 Ackman informercial titled “Herbalife Death Blow” (hahahahahaha) the day that HLF stock rallied 26% even though Billy boy was telling us it is all over?

Personally, as a HLF long, I am thrilled that Ackman is talking about shorting more. All that means is more profits for we longs when he finally has to cover.  And we all know by now that the short interest on HLF is primarily Ackman. 90% or more. So please Billy boy, increase it some more will you?

Ackman is barely hanging on to his extremely reckless HLF short play

Hey Billy Boy Ackman, here is a challenge for you. If you truly believe as you want the naive shorts and Ackman followers to believe that it is all over for Herbalife, that HLF stock is truly going to zero, why not bet more? Why not take all of your liquid cash and put it all on shorting HLF? Really push that short interest up there.

Right now short interest on HLF is lower than it was in 2013. Why not push it to new record highs Billy boy. Only with your money. Use Pershing Squares assets. I mean whatever assets you have left.  We all know that your assets with Persh Sq have dropped by more than 50%. So what do you have to lose? Put it all on.

And don’t stop there, why not mortgage your home, your vacation home, use your own money too. That is whatever you have left since your 9 figure divorce.

Hey Billy boy, fair challenge. If you truly are as sure as you try to pretend to, up the bet. Show some bravado. Then go on CNBC and spread more bullsh’t. Somebody may believe it.

And then  when HLF goes over $100, we all will be laughing hysterically at you.  I promise you that the longer you hold on to your reckless HLF short bet, the more you will lose. VRX will look like petty cash compared to the losses you will incur by staying short on HLF. As I am sure you are aware, when you short a stock the LOSSES ARE UNLIMITED!!!!!!!!

C’mon Billy boy. Bet the house. Show you are a real man. Show us your conviction. And then the market will show you another $4 BILLION+ LOSS for your stupidity.

You know, when I created this handle, I never realized how accurate it would be.  You are the king of scam artists.  And anyone who has followed you pre-Herbalife as I have, know full well that you are no investment genius. In fact, quite the opposite.

How many MORE Pershing Square investors redeemed shares from Perishing Square (Gotham Partners II)???

June 9, 2017

Oh wow what a difference a few days makes. On Sunday nite and throughout most of this week, the Ackman goons were wetting their pants and all over the internet with their all so often erroneous claims of doom and gloom on Herbalife (HLF) or to quote Allan Greenspan, “irrational exuberance” much ado over nothing.

We know that Herbalife was going to make a announcement on Monday and they did. So what? Is Herbalife the only company to pre-announce that earnings may be  disappointing? Nope. Irrational exuberance.

Herbalife did sell off on Monday and then came back somewhat still ending in the red for that day. On Tuesday. HLF came back and was in the black today for most of the day. HLF ended up slightly in the red for the week but not bad considering that the Ackman goons were predicting on Sunday night that HLF would close the week in the 50s. But are they ever right? Nope. Just irrational exuberance and lack of experience. Not to mention cheap scare tactics.

Let’s also put to rest the rising short interest crap. Short interest on Herbalife is still way below 2013 levels and newest stats are not available. Pure conjecture by the Ackman goons and perhaps Ackman himself.

 

BULLS STILL IN CHARGE. ICAHN STILL SQUEEZING THE LIFE OUT OF ACKMAN

icahn-ackman

 

Despite the hype, hoopla and total crap primarily on FAKES NEWS Seeking Alpha and other blogs, Ackman is still deeply, deeply in debt and on the losing side of his reckless HLF short position.

BETTING ON ZERO BOMBED AS PREDICTED

Last March, the Ackman goons or perhaps goon, Chris Irons aka quoththeraven were once again wetting themselves (himself) over the release of ‘Betting on Zero’ Many of us predited it would bomb. Irons predicted that would be, and once again imitating his idol Bill Ackman,  a “Herbalife Deathblow” (hahahahahaha) and would educated the unknowing public as to the terrible travesties of this horrible company called Herbalife which must be eradicated from the face of the earth! LOL!!!!

Of course, as usual, Irons assumes he knows something that nobody else does and also incorrectly assumed that the general public was in the dark about Herbalife and not aware of Ackman’s Fairytale, reckless HLF short play and lies about Herbalife.

‘Betting on Zero’ has been dropped from the few theaters it was showing in. And now, in case you missed it, ‘Betting on Zero’ is now available on netflix. But for how long and who cares? Pretty soon Ackman will be paying people to watch it. Yeah, it is that bad.

Meanwhile back on Wall Street, things are still looking very bleak for Billy boy Ackman. Despite his relentless attacks all week, HLF showed a minor selloff. Based on the way the Ackman goons inaccurately painted the picture, we would have expected a $20 drop at least on HLF. Never  happened.

The fact is, investors have lost faith in Ackman. His investors have been redeeming for quite some time and were still redeeming this week. Pershing Sq assets have been cut in half.

Bill Ackman’s new nickname could be “SLASHER”

8aa91e49c85cf4d1df9eeae85444fb56

Entry into Pershing Square funds is not cheap. There is a huge capital investment, nosebleed fees, high commission, huge back end fees if and when you get smart and redeem and when you do get smart and say you want to redeem,  Ackman’s snake oil salesmen will do everything possible to prevent you from getting your hands on your own money!

Why are so many Pershing Sq investors still redeeming and so few new investors buying in? Lost faith in Bill Ackman.

HINT: This is why new investors should not be buying into this fund and all the more reason why current Pershing Sq investors should redeem and get out a.s.a.p. 

Better to get out with less money than lose it all. Betting on Ackman’s investment expertise is a recipe for disaster.

Better to bet on a blindfolded monkey throwing darts than on Ackman’s ability to pick winning stocks.

 

monkey_darts

An old axiom in the the markets is “Never try to catch a falling knife.” No where is this more accurate than with Pershing Sq in which investment returns have fallen sharply over the last 2 years and still dropping.

In fact, it is now more apparent than ever that Ackman is pulling his hair out trying to save Pershing Sq and attempt to prevent it from becoming Gotham Partners II.

Notice how Ackman is now  going back to 15 year returns. Why? Because over 15 years his funds do show a profit. Big problem though. The investments in those early years 10-15 years ago have burned out. The big question all Pershing Sq investors have now is;

What have you done for us recently Ackman?” 

Answer is Lose $$$$$$.

A new motto is:

Lose Money Now – Ask Ackman How!

And how true.

We also now know that Ackman has sold off a lot of his investments. Most of which he was bragging about not long ago which went sour. If in fact Ackman ever did really have any magic, obviously that magic is now gone.

Most feel that Ackman never had any real magic or great strategies, he was just plain lucky. Like the proverbial blindfolded monkey.  He is no Buffet. My 12 yr old gets better returns in his proxy account.

If you have been a investor in Pershing Sq  and mirroring Ackman’s trades, you have seen double digits losses over the last two years just as I and others  predicted back in 2014. I see Pershing Sq as showing another major loss in 2017.

Those of us who have been in the game even prior to the Ackman-Herbalife saga, know very well about Ackman and his many mistakes. Yes he has had a few hits, perhaps one big hit. But so many misses. I honestly don’t know any other hedge fund manager who has been more wrong more often than Ackman.

2 weeks ago, Ackman was bragging about some “Mystery” investment that he invested in and is excited about.  He wouldn’t say what it is which I believe is a red flag suggesting that this is just a smoke screen to try to slow down the massive redemptions he is getting at Pershing Sq.

However, even if Ackman does  have a investment that has grown by 20%, how much   does that affect his fund overall? It may bring it to a 2%-3% return.  I repeat, Ackman’s fund at Pershing Sq has been down double  digits 2 years in a row. So at best, a 3% return in 2017 if that happens will leave Pershing Sq investors and others who follow Ackman’s reckless trades with a 3 year loss of  about-37%. I don’t know of any other hedge  fund or other manager who has done anywhere near this poorly.

Who wants to settle for 2% returns especially with such a huge up front investment and incredible inflated fees, commissions and other fees? And Ackman tries to play the nice guy. The good guy. The knight on a white horse coming to rescue those poor suckers who bought into Herbalife’s “pyramid” scheme.

If you ask me, Ackman is the one running a scheme. What he does and is doing makes pyramid schemes, of which Herbalife is not one,  look legitimate. I think it’s time the SEC looks into Ackman. Does a audit. Check returns and any profits with investors. Contact all of the Pershing Sq investors who redeemed i.e. dumped their worthless Pershing Sq fund investments and moved on. Let’s see how many victims we have over there. Should be interesting. And perhaps the SEC may want to go back in time and research what really happened with Gotham Partners and how many investors were robbed on that deal.

AND……….As Herbalife continues on it’s growth mode,  this will eat into Pershing Sq even more. Not to mention Ackman’s  other investments are not performing very well.

Don’t put too much credence into Ackman’s claim that he has some super investment that has grown by 20%. Ackman has a poker face and talks a lot. There is a reason why he has been called “A modern day version of PT Barnum” It is all show and drama. Look at his track record. Yuck!

Ackman also maintains a bearish attitude towards Herbalife no matter how wrong he always turns out to be.  I am certain that he will maintain a long term short position on HLF even when it takes Pershing Square to 0 and becomes Gotham Partners II.

Pershing Sq had nearly $20 billion in assets a year ago. Now it is down under $10 billion and declining fast. More and more Pershing Sq investors are redeeming daily. And few new investors are buying into this horrible fund and for good reason. It is expensive, has nose bleed fees and commission and has a horrible, absolutely horrible return. Most of all, look who manages it. Not an enviable record. And who wants to pay so much to lose $$$? You don’t need Ackman for this.  In fact, novice investors would do much better to invest on their own and generally massively outperform Ackman. My 12 yr old son does better with his proxy account.

Carl Icahn gave Ackman some good advice months ago……..

Carl Icahn, despite the negative attacks against him from smaller billionaire with a rapidly declining net worth Billy Ackman, tried to give Billy boy some good advice months ago.  He said that Ackman had gotten too emotional over the HLF short play and was trying to win a bet against Herbalife that was impossible He said that Ackman had “lost perspective” and indeed he has. And now obviously Pershing Sq is paying for Ackmans ineptness.

We all know that Ackman was responsible for taking Gotham Partners down. The once hedge fund office is now a dress factory. Ackman takes miscalculated risks and loses way too often.  And he loses B-I-G Hence, so many of his Pershing Sq investors are redeeming shares and washing their hands of Ackman. Who can blame them?

Just a few months ago, Pershing Sq took a huge hit at the expence of Ackmans foolishness and bad investment judgement with a $4 billion+ loss on VRX. And all this time Ackman was telling his sheep to hold on. He had carefully researched this company. The stock would bounce back.  Or so he said. Ackman doubled down by buying more shares as the stock dipped incurring even more losses. Finally selling when $VRX hit $10 for once again a $4 BILLION +LOSS. Ouch! Bad move. Bad judgement.  But it wasn’t his first and won’t be his last.

But does Ackman really know what he is doing in investments? Doesn’t look like it.

Do you remember when VRX used to trade @ $33.51 just a few months ago and Ackman was still so bullish on it? Ackman bought VRX at $270 and rode it all the way down to $10 before finally selling.  Does this sound like good judgement to you?

Today,  Herbalife (HLF) is up again. Make that three days in row. Ackman and his shills are wrong again. I don’t care if they hold on to their reckless short HLF positions. Hey, it’s their money not mine. I bet their phones are ringing from brokers with Margin Calls. 

In other news, TESLA is also up today. Didn’t Seeking Alpha with their FAKE NEWS STORIES  tell us to sell that last week? And what did I say? Hold on right? So once again, irregardless of Herbalife and HLF stock, who is right and who is wrong as usual,  the FAKE NEWS on Seeking Alpha which is why we call it FAKE NEWS!. qtr research needs to move out of Chris Irons bedroom, out of stock market speculation and  Chris Irons needs to move into something else, like maybe mowing grass? Perhaps he can do that without screwing up.

December, 2012 will go down as the worst time in Bill Ackmans life and will indelibly be etched in time as the time when Bill Ackman made the worst mistake of  his life—–Lying about Herbalife.

Every investor/trader shorts stocks from time to time. Nothing wrong with that.  Typically, savvy, sophisticated, educated and successful traders will research the companies and   stocks before shorting them, they will use technical analysis and other tools to determine whether a stock is ripe for shorting. Heretofore, no one has ever shorted a stock that successfully beat earnings 22 quarters in a row,  with a company that was and still is in a huge growth mode and used old, outmoded and debunked crap to create short position and then call it “A illegal PYRAMID SCHEME and their stock is headed to Zero” as Billy boy Ackman did to Herbalife at that now infamous informercial he mislabeled a presentation back in December 2012.

Billy boy Ackman is not what he claims to be. He has been apropiately named “The Worst of Wall Street”  Just ask anyone who follows his trades or anyone of the many who have redeemed shares and walked away from Pershing Sq. because of Ackman’s very bad investment decisions. 

http://www.therealbillackman.com

ackman the worst of wall street

*FACT-Ackman’s thesis was all wrong and still is. Where is Sean Dineen these days????

*FACT-Pershing Sq was having a bad year in 2012 and Ackman need to work some magic   so squew the numbers. So why not go after Herbalife? So he thought.

*FACT-Ackman did open a huge $1 billion plus short POS on HLF and allegedly bought December, 2012 puts.

*FACT-The Sohn Conference Informercial was conducted just days before options expiration

*FACT-Ackman would not allow anyone from Herbalife to be in attendance at this Sohn Conference Informercial to offer a point/counter point discussion. What was Ackman afraid of? Obviously the truth and he wanted nothing to ruin the big gains he was expecting from those puts and short POS before the end of December to sugar coat prospectuses to lure in more victims into his Pershing Sq fund scheme(Or is that Perishing??)

Ackman sure created an incredible Fairytale with his FAKE NEWS story on Herbalife and he continues with that FAKE NEWS story to this day. Big problem though: Ackman has been taking a licking on this insane, crazy, reckless, winless HLF short bet.

Despite the hype and drama, bringing in his buddies which included 2 AGs and a US senator, numerous appearances on CNBC, conferences and memos, blogs etc. after nearly 5 years Ackman is deeper in the  hole with his HLF short than ever before and barely hanging on by his fingernails

12279113_1070978669588105_5080892329987942338_n

To date Ackman has lost an estimated $7 million on this HLF short bet. To make any profit on this at all, HLF has to drop to $30. To make a huge profit, it has to drop to under $20. After the Sohn Conference Informercial, HLF did drop as low as $24 but rallied back up. And then when Carl Icahn came on the scene, it really rallied and went as high as $84 in January 2014.

Through it all, Ackman has been appearing on CNBC, sending out memos, apearing all over, frantically trying to find someone who will pretend to be a Herbalife “victim” still says “Herbalife is a pyramid scheme and the stock is going to zero” and everytime he says that, HLF goes higher, higher and higher. While HERBALIFE continues to grow constantly adding more and more and more preferred customers and distributors.

Ackman would be better off trying to shovel sand off of a beach. Same result!

Clearly Ackmans fairytale, and that is all it ever was has turned into a nightmare for this failing billionaire. More and more Pershing Sq investors are redeeming shares, fewer new accounts are being opened.  Ackman had no earthly clue what he was doing when he started this nor did he care that he as putting tens of thousands of HLF longs at risk,  4.5 million Herbalife distributors, 8,000 Herbalife employees without a job or a business opportunity that they  worked long and hard at and potentially leaving millions of happy customers all over the world without a product. Why? All because of Greed & Ego.

While Ackman bashes Herbalife, authentic billionaires who truly understand network marketing,  business and want to help people succeed, fully support it.

I value the word of these wise and very successful people over shyster, scammer Billy Boy Ackman. 

Regarding that short bet, Yeah I know Ackman claimed he was going to donate any profits to charity. C’mon.

Who invests $1 billion to short a stock and then passes it on to charity? This was all smoke and mirrors.  His eyes were bleeding green and he was chopping at the lips thinking of the billions he could make if this scam  against Herbalife really worked.  And he would look like a do goody to the uneducated and uninformed.  He would look like the “good guy” when he reality, he is quite the opposite.

Thank God it didn’t work.

Herbalife posted first quarter earnings on Thursday that were a blowout substantially exceeding analysts expectations and putting to rest the concerns that the FTC determination would seriously impact Herbalife going forward.

AS many of us have been stating for some time, there would be no serious impact. Herbalife has always been focused on retail sales along with recruiting. Sure there were some shysters who did not follow company guidelines and broke FTC rules by front end loading and selling worthless tools like stale leads, web sites and trying to create telemarketing heroes out of people with no previous sales experience and offered very little if any valuable assistance. Once reported, these people were terminated and actually went with other companies.

A walk down memory lane

Interesting is that when these violaters were reported  and terminated by Herbalife, the Ackman shills were all over the old Yahoo message boards as well as other personal blogs, websites stating “Top leaders leaving Herbalife” This started back in December 2012. They never mentioned that these “Top Leaders” were terminated by Herbalife. Surprised? I wasn’t

The same garbage, not surprisingly started to appear in the Seeking Alpha Fake stories.  Back then, there were as many as 5 anti-HLF “stories” appearing daily in SA. I challenged the authors to  retract their comments and indicate that these “top reps” were actually terminated. Of course they never did. It would take away from their drama and lies. Eventually though the truth came out. Especially when Carl Icahn came on the scene in January 2013.

It should be noted that these anti-HLF people (probably one person with a bunch of aliases) were predicting HLF would hit zero by March, 2013. Hello. It is May, 2017. And we are a long way from zero.

They also constantly reiterated Ackman’s insane line and made it their own:

“HLF is going to 0 and I have a strong sell on it.”

Oh really? What qualifies him to set a target price or a rating on it? Answer: Nothing!

Chris Irons aka Birdbrain quoththeraven

de-1120-123453-front

The big mouth in all of this tried to make it appear as though he was a big roller. Some big time analyst or celebrity. Using an alias, he even tried to suggest he was Hugh Heffner! LOL!  In fact, by his own admission he later, about 2 years later with help from Herbie admitted he was in fact “just a little guy” Yes indeed but he never revealed just how little. That was a few years ago.  Now he is trying to play the “big roller” role again and wants some people to think he really knows something. Clue: He doesn’t

Of course I am referring to Chris Irons aka quoththeraven.  I know you already knew it.  And as a another walk down memory lane, who was it that revealed his real first name was Chris and was about to reveal his whole name until he did it himself, embarrassed by my letting the cat out of the bag? Of course, I was the one. And keep in mind, prior to all of this, Chris Irons aka quoththeraven tried to convince everyone that he would never, never, never,never, ever release him real name because he was getting so much hate mail and death threats. LOL—–The drama continued. So much bull. But once I let people know that I was about to reveal his real name, the so called “Hate mail” and Deaththreats” were no longer an issue.

Chris Irons challenges John Hempton to a debate. Really Chris????

Almost too funny, I got a memo from someone who still subscribes to Chris Irons aka quoththeravens twitter feed that he wants to challenge John  Hempton, anytime, anywhere. While I can’t speak for John Hempton, I would love to see this happen. Is there any doubt that John Hempton would mop the floor with qtr??? Have you ever read any of quoththeravens (Chris Irons) stuff? He is not a very good communicator. Communication is not his forte at all. And he is never accurate. Hempton is. And Hempton understands investing. Chris Irons does not. He is always so wrong. My $$$$ are on Hempton, that is if Chris Irons actually accepts. But rest easy, he won’t. Just more of the drama.

I also received several messages from people sending me tweets that quoththeraven posted on his quoththeraven twitter page. I’ve been blocked and thankful for that just as I am continually deleting all of quoththeravens fake aliases from my twitter account. Interesting that this guy is so obsessed with following me.

Apparently on Thursday and Friday Irons came out like a raving lunatic. He couldn’t believe the earnings results nor how the street reacted and HLF soared. Was like Ackman’s ill fated “Herbalife death blow” in July 2014 (hahahahahaha) Some deathbow. Ackman looked like the fool he is as did Irons and whatever other followers Ackman has and HLF shorts. They were in shock. No response for about a week. Then Irons tried to spin it as he always does and the market laughed as they always do.

And BTW, 3 years ago Matt Stewart who many people think is just another alias for Chris Irons challenged Lenny Clements to a debate. Lenny accepted. But where was Matt?!!!!!! Lenny is a recognized authority on MLM. Stewart? He has an opinion and an agenda and is always wrong.

Matt also suggested that the Michigan AG and then all AGs across America would “pile on” Herbalife after two of Ackman’s buddies, both AGs initated action.  That died very quickly and no other AGs did anything.

Paper Tiger Matt Stewart aka “The Chicken”

Chris Irons aka quoththeravens reaction to HLF earnings and market on Thursday nite and Friday. 

quoththeraven after amargin call

Getting back to last Thursday, in Chris Irons world, earnings were bad. The sky was falling for Herbalife. Vindication for Ackman. Billy boy was right, yada, yada, yada. Funny the street didn’t see it that way as HLF SOARED in AH trading and continued to run up on Friday.  Chris Irons aka quoththeraven is obviously living in his own fantasy world and no doubt he thinks the rest of the world is oblivious to the truth and we, as he puts it so often, “just don’t get it” LOL!!!!!!!!

Moving on to 2nd quarter earnings

All we heard from the Anti-HLF’ers since HLF’s 4th qtr earnings was that the FTC decision would show up in Q1 earnings. Well we just had them, Herbalife did extremely well and predictably, the new argument from the Herbalife bashers is that it will show up in 2nd qtr earnings. In case these guys missed it, Herbalife had a strong outlook for 2017 and spring is always a good time for Herbalife sales. People want to lose weight for summer beachtime and warm weather season.  Not to mention their diversified product line of wellness, skin care and sports  supplements. Look for 2nd qtr earnings to also exceed.

And of course when Herbalife exceeds earnings in Q2, then the bashers will say wait until Q3, Q4, (yawn)

Some people suggest that there is a final test coming to see which side is  right, Ackman or Herbalife. Look at the last 4 1/2 years and look at 1st qtr earnings for 2017. Look at the reaction from the markets. I think it is obvious which side is right and pardon my grammar, but it ain’t Ackman. It is over for Ackman.

Carl Icahn has tightened his grip on Billy boy. Choking the life out of him. And Icahn is expected to be building on his position.  Good bye Billy.  You’re just a crybaby in the school yard. Always were, always will be.

Then some say that the bulls are winning for now.  For now????  The bulls have been winning this since January 2013!!!!!!!!!!

Some keep bringing out the FTC fine from last June. “That Herbalife paid a $200 million fine in July to end the FTC’s investigation into whether the multi-level marketer of diet shakes was a pyramid scheme, as Ackman had accused.”  Or that is how they say it.

Herbalife DID NOT pay the fine to end the FTCs investigation. FTC does not negotiate with companies that break the law. It was certain Herbalife distributors who broke the law and thus Herbalife ended up paying a fine for their improper actions. As already mentioned above, these distributors were terminated by Herbalife and their actions were never condoned by Herbalife and clearly against Herbalife policy.  And most of that fine went back to Herbalife via fmr Herbalife distributors who returned to the company at the end of qtr 4 and beginning of q1 and used that money to buy more Herbalife products. Where were the co called “Herbalife victims” Only in Ackmans imagination.

In fact, Herbalife agreed to distinguish between distributors who sell the product and preferred members who merely want to use the products. Ackman, who knows little or nothing about network marketing or even how to pick stocks as evidenced by his huge losses on HLF short not to mention VRX recently and JCP, BORDERS, TARGET etc.  scoffed at this idea and still claims that he sees HLF going to zero. But of course he does. His reputation is at stake and he has already lost approximately $700 million on this very reckless and poorly research HLF short play. And by the way, didn’t he also say he was bullish on VRX right up until he pulled the plug and sold it AT A $4 BILLION LOSS??? Ackman’s word is not his bond. His word is meaningless. He will say he is staying with his HLF short POS and then pull the plg and cover seconds later.

Herbalife reported 18,652 new members in North America in the first quarter, that number does not include the preferred members, a contingent that is several times larger than the distributors who actually sell the product to others. (Since Herbalife began separating these two categories in mid-January, 80% of new U.S. recruits signed up as preferred members, the company said.)

Previously, the Herbalife bashers claim was that Herbalife did not have any customers. Now Herbalife is proving they do. And now the Ackmanaholics Herbalife bashers look at this as bad news for Herbalife??????????? I don’t think so. It proves what Herbalife has been saying all along. That there are real customers. And I am certain that is the way the street saw it too based on the huge rally on Thursday AH and on Friday.

The total combined number of new U.S. distributors and preferred members is just slightly below what it was last year: In the first quarter of 2016, Herbalife disclosed 83,276 new North American recruits, of which about 80,200 were in the U.S. This year, the number was 78,900 for the same period, a decline of 1.7%, according to the company.

But, take into consideration the constant attacks by Ackman and his shills. Contrary to what Ackman and his shills say, this has leaked out to the general public and has affected Herbalife to some degree. Mainstreet is very much aware of this and not because of that Ackman informercial mislabeled a documentary.  However, in spite of Ackman’s unsubstantiated remarks, Herbalife still continued to grow massively outpacing other network marketing-MLM companies in North America.

And of course, you have to take into account the current state of the economy and that USA had a presidential election in 2016. These things always create turmoil in the the markets.  ALL told, Herbalife’s numbers were very impressive if not extraordinary.

Even before the quarter ended, there were signs that Ackman and other Herbalife detractors had underestimated the number of consumers amid the company’s distributor ranks. This is nothing new. In 2012, Ackman also underestimated and misjudged when herbalife reps would renew. It was a huge miscalulation.

When the FTC sent settlement checks earlier this year to supposed Herbalife “victims” who had supposedly never made any money as distributors, many of those who are now preferred members received them. Fans of the diet and nutrition products who never intended to resell them, some of those people said they planned to spend the settlement money on more Herbalife shakes and protein bars. Put another way, that FTC fine is being redirected  back to Herbalife and Herbalife did not pay a fine to end the FTC investigation. The FTC does not operate that way. If Herbalife was guilty of any wrong doing, they would have been shut down. They weren’t. Case closed. Except in the minds of Ackman and his nutty follower(s)

Some will remember that Herbalife faced a major challenge back in 1985. Prior to the media attack then, Herbalife’s sales were over $512 million annually and were up to over $90 million a month in January, 1985. After the media attack, Herbalife sales dropped all the way down to only $10 million annually.  This occurred in the 1980s. We all know Herbalife came roaring back. Also, I think that challenge was far more potent that what little weenie Ackman has offered. Herbalife is very resilent and has always proved that they are following the laws. Legal and ethical.

The FTC was yanked into this by Ackman via his buddy Sen. Markey.  What was the result? Ackman lost again and we haven’t heard from Sen. Markey. I wonder if he is still close friends with ACKMAN after this embarrassment???? And how about those two AGs who were such good buddies with Billy boy, where are they? Also been very quiet.

Sen. Markey may be eating ice cream cones, but he has had very little to do with his (former??) good buddy Billy boy Ackman

sen ed markey

As already mentioned, that FTC settlement to so called Herbalife “victims” has brought more former distributors and preferred members back to Herbalife and they are using that money to buy more Herbalife products.  So the settlement is actually being redirected back to Herbalife. Interesting. Or at least much of it.

Also, Herbalife as we all know has their WinBack program in place which has been very successful bringing back more former distributors and preferred members. And of course  Herbalife reps are hard at work building their businesses. I see the button “Lose Weight Now – Ask Me How” everywhere and Herbalife reps inviting people to their nutrition clubs. Speaking of which, I love the nutrition clubs. They are very powerful.

Another thing, spring is always the best time of the year for Herbalife as people are focusing on losing weight for summer and warm weather season. Expect sales to SOAR. And there are ads all over for Herbalife. Not to mention that Herblaife’s product line goes beyond just weight loss to sports supplements, wellness products, skin care and more.  All of these things are positives and I expect Herbalife to have a OUTSTANDING 2nd quarter.

The squeeze on Ackman tightened up considerably last Thursday. Expect to get even tighter.  MOASS is here.

22f_ackman_ipad-525x615

I also enjoy playing with quoththeraven aka Chris Irons, Ackman, his braindead shills and the stupid and ignorant HLF shorts.  Every single time they open their mouths via the internet with outrageus, ridiculous “what ifs”  and “maybes” Doom & Gloom predictions, yet they are always wrong and I am always right. I look forward to doing it again next quarter and watching them be oh sooo wrong yet again. My guess is that Ackman will be gone by then. But this guy will continue. I guess he really needs that $35 an article and a penny per click from the garbage he writes on SA.

Hey Chris, so there is no hard feelings, I have  some friends in Philly who may be able to help you. They are looking for a gardener and someone to mow their lawn. Probably will pay better than writing garbage on Seeking alpha and more ethical than promoting Pump & Dump pennystock junk. Of course, this is assuming you really do live in Philly and are fit enough to    run a lawn mower and do  garndening work.  Do you really live in Philly? Perhaps that is total bull too.

Ackmanaholics and shills are really funny.  No matter  how many times they are wrong, which is everytime, they still maintain they are right and think they can manipulate t he market with their b.s.  It never works! They are like the guy who hits himself on the head with a hammer. He should only have to do that one time to realize, “Ouch, that hurts.”

Image result for image of a man hitting himself on the head with a hammer

Herbalife had great earnings as I and so many other experienced investors indicated long before earnings was announced. I made it obvious that I was long a week before and was expecting great earnings. I increased my POS on HLF, bought calls, sold puts and bought more shares. And do you know how many companies would love to have the numbers that Herbalife produced on Thursday? Do you know how many MLM companies would love to acquire 83,276 new distributors just in North America in 1 yr and without the noise and distraction of that lunatic Ackman???

Clearly, what Herbalife did on Thursday was nothing short of mind boggling.

BTW, here are some of my other holdings. Obviously, I can’t put an image of my account on here.  I know how to invest successfully. Unlike Ackman and Chris Irons. BTW, did you know that even though Chris Irons along with his idol Ackman, makes wise cracks about Herbalife reps, calls them “get rich quick money hungry scam artists” Do you know how he makes his living? He is a PUMPnDUMP pennsystock promoter.

And interesting too, in another tweet that I received made by Chris Irons aka quoththeraven, he indicates he wants the name calling stopped but then proceeds to name call Michael O. Johnson and new Herbalife CEO. Well, well. Those of us who ever read his stuff have come to expect this.  No surprise.

Hey Chris, my friends in Philly really are looking for someone to mow their grass and be their gardener. At least this would allow you to make an honest living, for a change.  And no doubt more $$$ than what you make now. IF you are healthy enough to do it that is.stock-photo-cute-man-mowing-lawn-in-the-backyard-of-his-house-191098076

Still bullish on NFLX. So much growth potential.

People who have been following me know that I have always been bullish on NFLX.  Perhaps that is the reason that Chris Irons aka quoththeraven has been bearish. It is not a secret that qtr and I have been battling back and forth on  HLF-Herbalife. So in Chris Irons warped world, if we disagree on HLF then he must disagree with me on everything I write about and every stock that I am bullish on.

Sometime ago, I said I was bullish on NFLX and was loading up. Buying calls, selling puts and buying even more shares.

And how did Chris Irons aka quotetheraven react? He said to short it. NFLX was trading @ $150 at that time. Result? NFLX ran up to $550, did a stock split and ran up again.  And it has been growing ever since.  This is why I advice that no one take anything Chris Irons says seriously. It’s nothing personal. It’s just that he is always wrong.

“quoththeraven research” is a one man operation that Chris no doubt runs from his bedroom. Caveat emptor. Last January, he was very bullish on GNC predicting that stock would run to $14 easy. Result? GNC dropped to $6 and change. He was also bearish on AAPL only because at the time Carl Icahn who has been eating Billy Ackman’s lunch for 4 1/2 years, had a massive long position and was bullish on AAPL. Such is his reasoning and  always wrong.

And of course he was long and continously hyped VRX-VALEANT all the way down from $270 to $10. Why? Because his idol Billy Ackman kept hyping it so little billy ackman—chris irons also hyped it. Birds of a feather screw up together.

Anyway, back to NFLX which has been up over 38% since last November.

Netflix could run another 68%. Strong earnings potential.

Yahoo Finance’s call of the week is MKM Partners’ bullish note on Netflix (NFLX). Analyst Rob Sanderson maintained a buy rating while raising his 12-month price target on the stock Thursday to $195 per share.

Sanderson’s current price target is 22.5x his 2021 EPS estimate, and implies a $273 stock price in 2020. That means he thinks Netflix shares could soar 68% from Friday’s opening price of $162.84 a share.

Why is Sanderson bullish on the streaming giant? He thinks it will continue to capitalize on the growing number of cord cutters nationwide.

After Netflix reported that its total U.S. subscribers reached 50.85 million last quarter, he thinks the outer boundary of MKM Partners’ long-term view of 60 million to 90 million U.S. subscribers is “more plausible” than most people think.

Sanderson wrote, “We think that NFLX will continue to reinforce its broad market appeal and expand its content budget as it scales users and eventually achieves the high-end of its U.S. adoption target. We think this mass appeal will also apply globally into hundreds of millions of homes.”

Sanderson wasn’t the only bullish call on Netflix this week. Piper Jaffray also upped its price target on the stock to $190, the second highest on the street, while maintaining an overweight rating. Analyst Michael Olson warns the street may be underestimating Netflix’s future growth overseas.

Netflix’s stock is up more than 30% since January 1.

The left wing libtards lying and meltdown continues. An as actor James Woods says, “It is so sinfully delicious.” (The meltdown while the lies are fading in credibility fast)

June 4, 2017

 

5889170b3f1bd

Actor James Woods said it best, this liberal meltdown over Trump not just winning the election massively last November but still winning the peoples favor and actually coming through on his promises is driving the left wing liberals well past the meltdown stage and it is “sinfully delicious.”  It feels so good.

After the election, we saw and heard about crying, cocoa, support groups, aromatherapy and more.

Hillary supporters could not believe that their hero, their “champion of women” (yeah right) lost. Others couldn’t believe that anyone thought she had a real chance to win.

post-up-a-screen-shot-of-a-liberal-meltdown-from-6883248

Had Trump lost, all of America would be vastly disappointed and very concerned about the  future of this country in the hands of a “President Hillary” Howevre, we  would never cry and carry on like the left did back then and still are now.

Then there were were the recounts and the popular vote.

There was supposed collusion with Russia and the Trump campaign. The liberals had their hopes up. Hoping for a miracle.

But then the  facts came out. There are no grounds for impeachment. It was all a big liberal lie. AS USUAL…

hqdefault

Trump’s tax’s. (Still waiting for Hillary to release her transcripts from those secret meetings and speeches not to mention over 30,000 deleted emails)

The past week, there was talk about impeachment. (LOL) And when that went out the window, how did the liberals act?  Predictably…….

mental_meltdown

And prior to that, suggestions that Trump leaked top secret information to the Russians (Double LOL)

Firing James Comey. (Like anybody liked that dud.) Good bye and good riddance to the bum.

It is obvious that the left wing libtards have totally lost it. Watching bits of their performances on TV is hysterical. They are foaming at their mouths, Wetting their pants. Absolutely breathless (did they get that from Madonna???) while reporting. “Impeach. Impeachment. It has never been this close before.” Yeah right.

This should have been an omen to everyone……

renoclip

Janet Reno passed just one day before Trump wins the election in a landslide. I am not trying to make light of some one passing away. It is interesting  though. The timing of this.  Be careful what you say.. The Almighty is always around. He sees and hears everything. So there is no misunderstanding, now as last fall when I first reported this, my sincerest condolences to the friends and family of Janet Reno. Death is never  something you make fun of.

Last October, I posted The Trump Prophecy  amidst attacks from so many sides. Many said I had lost it. Some said I was being sacrilegious. Others said that I had stooped to “new lows”  The fact remains that that video was right  on.  I was merely promoting what I knew was true.

Now here is the new Prophecy. Watch and learn……..

Getting back to the impeachment bullcrap, Big problem with that. There are no grounds for impeachment and you turkeys peddling this story already know that.  People peddling this crap are great actors. You guys deserve an academy award. Perhaps Merle Streep can create one for you and along with that,  also provide one of her incredulous, insane speeches that makes  everyone throw up and puke.

Even so called Republican leaders like John McCain care calling this “Like Watergate” (LOL) I never said that democrats have exclusivity to lying idiots.

In the   2008 election, many were wondering why both the Clinton’s were so friendly with and spoke so positively about John McCain. Look at the picture below and decide for  yourself. Do you republicans really think  John McCain is on our side? Better think again.

C6CTYaEUoAAvk6f

John McCain may or may not have been a real American hero. That is now questionable. Even if he was, something is terribly wrong with this man now. He appears terribly incompetent. Incoherent or just plain out of control and irresponsible. Perhaps he is still trying to get over his massive loss to Obama in ’08. Or the humuliation he faced by David Letterman when McCain blatantly lied saying “I have to rush to washington. The economy is cratering. I can’t make your show Dave.” When he really snuck across the street to another show. What a guy.

Like Dave Letterman said, “Somebody has been putting something in his metamucil.”

mccain

Many people feel that McCain was no more qualified to be POTUS than Hillary was. And Hillary was a total joke. She was not qualified to be POTUS and it showed last November. McCain would not have been any better than Hillary and no doubt, worse than Obama. If you are a republican or an American on any side and think John McCain is a great hero and for what is right in America, think again.

George Soros is another one in a huge meltdown. He has spent millions attacking Trump and made a huge investment in shorting the US markets as soon as Trump won. Rumor is that Soros invested over a billion $$$ and then used leverage to raise his investment to nearly $1 trillion. I hope it is true.

Soros supposedly bet $1 trillion????? Big Problem with that, all indexes hit new highs right after Trump won. Soros is losing millions, possibly billions on this reckless short position. Any wonder why he is in a meltdown??? And does anyone feel sorry for him betting AGAINST the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA??? I hope he loses it all and perhaps he will displace Bill Ackman as “the worst of wall street.”george_soros

Donald Trump had the best first 100 days of any POTUS in over 50 years. Those of us who voted for him and who are not subscribers to the MSM FAKE NEWS are thrilled with his accomplishments. The liberals on the other hand, are very upset.  It really bothers them that Trump is truly going to make American Greater than ever before. He is on track. So how do they respond??

Liberals portray their leaders as though they are something that clearly they are not.  How would we republicans feel if we had this leading our party? I would change parties pronto!

Rachel Maddow is considered to be one of the top “actors” for the left on MSNBC. Her show was highly rated at one time, but has plummeted bad of late. I think we know why. She always seems to screw up so bad. Even liberals, even blindsided liberals can see through her lies.

But poor Rachel is not alone in the left wing libtard meltdown.  She has lots of company.

89f91a9e53325c58244fbd60960e787a

And that is exactly what AMERICANS did last November, We voted the stupid ones out and will again in 2018 for mid terms and in 2020 yet again as we re-elect Donald J. Trump for a 2nd term and keep the stupid ones out. By stupid, that is not just democrats, but also incompetent and irresponsible republicans as well. Do your jobs or you will be replaced.

GOD BLESS THE USA —– REAL LEADERSHIP IS BACK IN THE WHITE HOUSE

Meanwhile the left wing libtards and their assigns continue to use weapons of Mass Distortion  aka FAKE NEWS.

The Peoples Choice Versus the Media’s Choice……………

Fascinating video. Despite the facts, the very undemocratic party, the MSM, hollywood elitiists and many misguided registered democrats were convinced Hillary would win.  It is very obvious that Hillary was never going to win. No way!

The election may have been over 6 months ago. But the lies and deception continues.  The left wing libtards are still are still in mourning and still in a meltdown over this and still attacking Trump unfairly.

If you never saw this before, worth a watch. I recommend that you watch of the these videos. It is time consuming and also  time well spent.

Hollywoods elitists had a hard time accepting that their judgement was so bad, their “selected one” was a bitter failure and they were not as influential as they thought. Despite their rallies and fund raising, American’s  voted for Trump and poor, poor Hillary lost in a landslide loss to the NY billionaire.

One of the most disgusting performances by one of the pro Hillary hollywood elitists was by Ashley Judd.  This is really a shame because Ashley is a very accomplished actress, usually very articulate and typically espouses grace. Not in January 2017! She acted like a high school kid performing poorly in a play and who had taken too much crack.

Ashley-Judd-800x416

Ashley was not the only celebrity to be distraught over the fact that the masses clearly did not agree with her judgement, George Clooney was also in a state of shock. Get over it people. You were wrong.  Your powers of influence were not that great. Admit it and move on.

GeorgeClooneyTrumpFreakout

Meryle Streep, perhaps one of the most over rated actresses was so upset that she made a special speech about it. Poor Merle was even more shocked when the audience failed to respond as she had hoped.

Streisand is a great entertainer to be sure and she should stick to singing, not picking presidential candidates. Here she clearly sucks.

Streisand

The liberal media has been relentless in their attacks on POTUS Trump and his adminstration disseminating FAKE NEWS non stop and making their frustration very transparent.

meltdown

No group of reporters or left wing supporters have ever been more wrong, more often than these clowns.

Chris Matthews practically left out the F-Bomb word on national tv. Chris must be thinking, “How many more lies do I have to make up on Trump to get people to believe my bullsh’t?”

chrismatthews-696x392

Rachel laments the same thing. “So what I got his tax returns  wrong.  And so many other things too. People are supposed to believe my bullsh’t.” Ent! Not anymore.

And, “This can’t be happening. The more we attack Trump, the stronger he becomes.

Keith Olberman has had his moments of greatness in the past, but that seems to be in the past. Keith gets fired from jobs like we change our underwear. Now we can welcome him to the deranged house of liberals going through a massive meltdown.

Talk about massive  disappointments, there is no BIGGER disappointment than with Big Mike. He should exchange that hat for one that says MAGA. At least then he would be for a change on the right and winning side. Mike is now talking about making a movie that will sink Trump. Hey Mike, we didn’t forget how you bragged back in 2004 that you were going to sink President Bush. How did that work out for you? We already know. Obviously, you forgot. Good luck with your next big bomb.

Michael-Moore-capitalism-Getty

And then there is this clown. How funny is it when left wing liberals begin using low talented comics as references to attack Trump. I think this comic is very funny.  But I would never take anything he says politically serious. Nor should you.  Remember, he also inaccurately predicted a year ago that Trump would no way, no how ever win the presidency. Nuff said about this jerk. The best thing about this guy is that when he comes on, we can turn him off.

Two months before the election, Hillary stated, “You may ask why I am not 50 pts ahead.” No Hillary. Nobody asked that. We wondered why someone under FBI investigation was allowed to run and why someone with your history of misdeeds escaped prison. Then we found out why. Your buddy Comey. We didn’t forget about Whitewater.  Now with a new FBI director coming in, the investigation can be re-opened, a fair investigation can be conducted by a competent and non biased FBI director and the outcome no  doubt will be much different.  I hope you are nervous Hillary. You have every right to be be. And when they look into the fraudulent Clinton Foundation, even worse. Tell us Hillary how you justify taking donations, keeping millions upon millions of dollars for yourself and only giving paltry leavings to the intended charity? We all want to know.

hillary-meltdown-380x250

The fix was in for Hillary to win. It was so certain that magazines already had a cover picture ready for publication. Hillary went out and bought a new gown. She was all ready for the big coronation. She thought she had this in the bag.  Even hired a band.  But alas, it was not  to be. Poor, poor Hillary couldn’t even win in an election that was fixed for her to win. The magazine had to replace her picture with the real winner and new POTUS, the peoples choice—President Trump. Ahhhh. What a relief for America.

Hillary had to be thinking, “We tapped his phones. I was given the debate questions. We made up fake polls. MSM Attacked the living sh’t out of Trump. Debate commentators triple teamed him on the debate stage.  We had dead people and illegals vote and fixed the popular vote and I still lost???? WTF???”

They can’t hurt him.  This is 2017, not the 1990s. People didn’t see through the media lies in the 1990s and over the last 8 years with Obama. They see them now.  We just don’t trust the media-MSM-FAKE NEWS that is anymore. We want change. We want a real American who will work for America and that person is DONALD J. TRUMP.

Poor Bernie Sanders got the royal shaft from his own party. Bernie should have and would have been the democrat nominee if only the DNC had not interceded and put the fix in for Hillary. But rest easy liberals, Bernie would have fallen to Trump too. One major  difference though. At least Bernie would have earned the right to go against Trump. Hillary did not.

Latest news is that there is now an investigation underway to prove that Bernie was discriminated against. I am not a Bernie fan. Never would have voted for him. Nonetheless this was not fair. Every  vote must count and now we know that the democrat party is nothing even close to being “democratic”

imrs

I would be remiss if I left out this crybaby kook.  He may very well be the biggest rotten apple in the barrel. Thank God he is not a republican. I have to wonder if he is really an American. Clearly he has a agenda which is not in the best interests of the American people.

C7-syLSVMAEXsFP

The liberal meltdown. How long will it continue? How long before they blow a fuse? How long before they realize that their nauseating  rhetoric is just not working. Nobody is buying it. If anything, it makes the left wing libtards look even more screwed up than they already are. And they are very screwed up. Hopefully they will extinguish themselves.

The one thing that may be working in the liberals favor is that perhaps it may be slowing our POTUS from doing the work he wants to do. And that means Americans have to wait even longer for change.

American’s have been waiting for years. They are weary and tired of waiting. They yearn for growth in America and they want it now.

Even the left wing libtards with their lies and innuendo have to know the real numbers. That Trump won in a landslide last November. His popularity is increasing. His approval numbers are on the rise. He still packs stadiums.

Hey libtards,  do you really want those millions and millions of Americans coming after you? Just asking. They know that you are the problem. Not Trump. They know that they are having financial challenges and want relief.  They want to get rid of Obamacare. Want to see the wall built and so much more.  THEY, we all know that Trump can do it. And they, we all know that the only thing holding him back is you.

Obama was the  food stamp POTUS. He gave people a handout.  Employment numbers under Obama, as with Bill Clinton in the 90s were jaded.  Good jobs were lost and replaced with low paying, non career drive through window fast food jobs.  Most of the new jobs were part time with no benefits. People are oh so tired of this.

Donald Trump is bringing back good, quality jobs.  Look what he has done already.  President Trump is giving Americans who are willing to work for it, a hand up, rather than a hand out.

Think About it.

However, while watching the left wing libtards do their show, be prepared. Be ready.  Knowing that everything you read, see or hear on the MSM FAKE NEWS is just bullsh’t, if you decide to watch, have several rolls of toilet tissue nearby. You’ll need it.

All modern aware Americans know that the establishment craves power and is weepy, whinny because they have lost that power. President Trump, unlike his predecessor and many other pevious POTUSs cannot be bought. He is for the American people.  We Americans prefer to have someone who is for the American people, not about power and control. Those days are over.

Let me end just as I started with this quote from actor James Woods. Ahhhh Yes. This is sinfully delicious. I just love watching the left wing libtards freak out and go through their meltdown. Please continue. It is very entertaining.  And get ready to say President Trump for at least 8 more years!!!!!!! And by the way, get ready to see America grow as never before in spite of massive interference by the left wing libtards.

It is obvious that the left wing libtards have totally lost it. Watching bits of their performances on TV is hysterical. They are foaming at their mouths, Wetting their pants. Absolutely breathless (did they get that from Madonna???) while reporting. “Impeach. Impeachment. It has never been this close before.” Yeah right.

Big problem with that. There are no grounds for impeachment and you turkeys already know that. Great actors. You guys deserve an academy award. Perhaps Merle Streep can create one for you and along with that,  also provide one of her incredulous, insane speeches that makes  everyone throw up and puke.

Even so called Republican leaders like John McCain care calling this “Like Watergate” (LOL)

In the   2008 election, many were wondering why both the Clinton’s were so friendly with and spoke so positively about John McCain. Look at the picture below and decide for  yourself. Do you republicans really think  John McCain is on our side? Better think again.

C6CTYaEUoAAvk6f

John McCain may or may not have been a real American hero. That is now questionable. Even if he was, something is terribly wrong with this man now. He appears terribly incompetent. Incoherent or just plain out of control and irresponsible. Perhaps he is still trying to get over his massive loss to Obama in ’08. Or the humuliation he faced by David Letterman when McCain blatantly lied saying “I have to rush to washington. The economy is cratering. I can’t make your show Dave.” When he really snuck across the street to another show. What a guy.

Like Dave Letterman said, “Somebody has been putting something in his metamucil.”

mccain

Many people feel that McCain was no more qualified to be POTUS than Hillary was. And Hillary was a total joke. She was not qualified to be POTUS and it showed last November. McCain    would not have been any better than Hillary and no doubt, worse than Obama.

Donald Trump had the best first 100 days of any POTUS in over 50 years. Those of us who voted for him and who are not subscribers to the MSM FAKE NEWS are thrilled with his accomplishments. The liberals on the other hand, are very upset.  It really bothers them that Trump is truly going to make American Greater than ever before. He is on track. So how do they respond??

Liberals portray their leaders as though they are something that clearly they are not.  How would we republicans feel if we had this leading our party? I would change parties pronto!

Rachel Maddow is considered to be one of the top “actors” for the left on MSNBC. Her show was highly rated at one time, but has plummeted bad of late. I think we know why. She always seems to screw up so bad. Even liberals, even blindsided liberals can see through her lies.

But poor Rachel is not alone in the left wing libtard meltdown.  She has lots of company.

And that is exactly what AMERICANS did last November, We voted the stupid ones out and will again in 2018 for mid terms and in 2020 yet again as we re-elect Donald J. Trump for a 2nd term and keep the stupid ones out. By stupid, that is not just democrats, but also incompetent and irresponsible republicans as well. Do your jobs or you will be replaced.

Meanwhile the left wing libtards and their assigns continue to use weapons of Mass Distortion  aka FAKE NEWS.

Most notable is CNN with MSNBC right behind and they are others. All FAKE NEWS.

Hollywoods elitists had a hard time accepting that their judgement was so bad, their “selected one” was a bitter failure and they were not as influential as they thought. Despite their rallies and fund raising, American’s  voted for Trump and poor, poor Hillary lost in a landslide loss to the NY billionaire.

One of the most disgusting performances by one of the pro Hillary hollywood elitists was by Ashley Judd.  This is really a shame because Ashley is a very accomplished actress, usually very articulate and espouses grace. Not in January 2017! She acted like a high school kid performing poorly in a play and who had taken too much crack.

Ashley-Judd-800x416

Ashley was not the only celebrity to be distraught over the fact that the masses clearly did not agree with her judgement, George Clooney was also in a state of shock. Get over it people. You were wrong.  Your powers of influence were not that great. Admit it and move on.

GeorgeClooneyTrumpFreakout

Meryle Streep, perhaps one of the most over rated actresses was so upset that she made a special speech about it. Poor Merle was even more shocked when the audience failed to respond as she had hoped.

Streisand is a great entertainer to be sure and she should stick to singing, not picking presidential candidates. Here she clearly sucks.

Streisand

The liberal media has been relentless in their attacks on POTUS Trump and his adminstration disseminating FAKE NEWS non stop and making their frustration very transparent.

meltdown

No group of reporters or left wing supporters have ever been more wrong, more often than these clowns.

Chris Matthews practically left out the F-Bomb word on national tv. Chris must be thinking, “How many more lies do I have to make up on Trump to get people to believe my bullsh’t?”

chrismatthews-696x392

Rachel laments the same thing. “So what I got his tax returns  wrong.  And so many other things too. People are supposed to believe my bullsh’t.” Ent! Not anymore.

And, “This can’t be happening. The more we attack Trump, the stronger he becomes.

Keith Olberman has had his moments of greatness in the past, but that seems to be in the past. Keith gets fired from jobs like we change our underwear. Now we can welcome him to the deranged house of liberals going through a massive meltdown.

Talk about massive  disappointments, there is no BIGGER disappointment than with Big Mike. He should exchange that hat for one that says MAGA. At least then he would be for a change on the right and winning side. Mike is now talking about making a movie that will sink Trump. Hey Mike, we didn’t forget how you bragged back in 2004 that you were going to sink President Bush. How did that work out for you? We already know. Obviously, you forgot. Good luck with your next big bomb.

Michael-Moore-capitalism-Getty

And then there is this clown. How funny is it when left wing liberals begin using low talented comics as references to attack Trump. I think this comic is very funny.  But I would never take anything he says politically serious. Nor should you.  Remember, he also inaccurately predicted a year ago that Trump would no way, no how ever win the presidency. Nuff said about this jerk. The best thing about this guy is that when he comes on, we can turn him off.

Two months before the election, Hillary stated, “You may ask why I am not 50 pts ahead.” No Hillary. Nobody asked that. We wondered why someone under FBI investigation was allowed to run and why someone with your history of misdeeds escaped prison. Then we found out why. Your buddy Comey. We didn’t forget about Whitewater.  Now with a new FBI director coming in, the investigation can be re-opened, a fair investigation can be conducted by a competent and non biased FBI director and the outcome no  doubt will be much different.  I hope you are nervous Hillary. You have every right to be be. And when they look into the fraudulent Clinton Foundation, even worse. Tell us Hillary how you justify taking donations, keeping millions upon millions of dollars for yourself and only giving paltry leavings to the intended charity? We all want to know.

hillary-meltdown-380x250

The fix was in for Hillary to win. It was so certain that magazines already had a cover picture ready for publication. Hillary went out and bought a new gown. She was all ready for the big coronation. She thought she had this in the bag.  Even hired a band.  But alas, it was not  to be. Poor, poor Hillary couldn’t even win in an election that was fixed for her to win. The magazine had to replace her picture with the real winner and new POTUS, the peoples choice—President Trump. Ahhhh. What a relief for America.

Hillary had to be thinking, “We tapped his phones. I was given the debate questions. We made up fake polls. MSM Attacked the living sh’t out of Trump. Debate commentators triple teamed him on the debate stage.  We had dead people and illgals vote and fixed the popular vote and I still lost???? WTF???”

Meanwhile, Liberals continue to go through their meltdown.

And they forget Trump’s secret weapon…

They can’t hurt him.  This is 2017, not the 1990s. People didn’t see through the media lies in the 1990s and over the last 8 years with Obama. They see them now.  We just don’t trust the media-MSM-FAKE NEWS that is anymore. We want change. We want a real American who will work for America and that person is DONALD J. TRUMP.

Poor Bernie Sanders got the royal shaft from his own party. Bernie should have and would have been the democrat nominee if only the DNC had not interceded and put the fix in for Hillary. But rest easy liberals, Bernie would have fallen to Trump too. One major  difference though. At least Bernie would have earned the right to go against Trump. Hillary did not.

imrs

I would be remiss if I left out this crybaby kook.  He may very well be the biggest rotten apple in the barrel. Thank God he is not a republican. I have to wonder if he is really an American. Clearly he has a agenda which is not in the best interests of the American people.

C7-syLSVMAEXsFP

The liberal meltdown. How long will it continue? How long before they blow a fuse? How long before they realize that their nauseating  rhetoric is just not working. Nobody is buying it. If anything, it makes the left wing libtards look even more screwed up than they already are. And they are very screwed up.

The one thing that may be working in the liberals favor is that perhaps it may be slowing our POTUS from doing the work he wants to do. And that means Americans have to wait even longer for change.

American’s have been waiting for years. They are weary and tired of waiting. They yearn for growth in America and they want it now.

Even the left wing libtards with their lies and innuendo have to know the real numbers. That Trump won in a landslide last November. His popularity is increasing. His approval numbers are on the rise. He still packs stadiums.

Hey libtards,  do you really want those millions and millions of Americans coming after you? Just asking. They know that you are the problem. Not Trump. They know that they are having financial challenges and want relief.  They want to get rid of Obamacare. Want to see the wall built and so much more.  THEY, we all know that Trump can do it. And they, we all know that the only thing holding him back is you.

Obama was the  food stamp POTUS. He gave people a handout.  Employment numbers under Obama, as with Bill Clinton in the 90s were jaded.  Good jobs were lost and replaced with low paying, non career drive through window fast food jobs.  Most of the new jobs were part time with no benefits. People are oh so tired of this.

Donald Trump is bringing back good, quality jobs.  Look what he has done already.  President Trump is giving Americans who are willing to work for it, a hand up, rather than a hand out.

Think About it.

However, while watching the left wing libtards do their show, be prepared. Be ready.  Knowing that everything you read, see or hear on the MSM FAKE NEWS is just bullsh’t, if you decide to watch, have several rolls of toilet tissue nearby. You’ll need it.

Capt Kirk tells the libtards “precious snowfakes” what he thinks.  Right on Bill.

Shatner-Tweet

All modern aware Americans know that the establishment craves power and is weepy, whinny because they have lost that power. President Trump, unlike his predecessor and may other pevious POTUSs cannot be bought. He is for the American people.  We Americans prefer to have someone who is for the American people, not about power and control. Those days are over.

Let me end just as I started with this quote from actor James Woods. Ahhhh Yes. This is sinfully delicious. I just love watching the left wing libtards freak out and go through their meltdown. Please continue. It is very entertaining.  And get ready to say President Trump for at least 8 more years!!!!!!! And by the way, get ready to see America grow as never before in spite of massive interference by the left wing libtards.

People attacking POTUS Trump a lot like alligators

18527722_10154348301352391_1028980623528387872_n

Check out this picture of the alligator. See the big head, big teeth and most importantly Big Mouth.

What you may not know about alligators is despite the huge size of their head and mouth, then have a brain the size of a small bean.

Everytime I hear or read the absolute bullsh’t from the left wing libtards, the FAKE NEWS—MSM, especially MSNBC and CNN, The George Soros group, the DNC, supposedly republican leaders like John McCain and others and all the others who continously and relentously bash our President, create lie after lie after lie about him. Some were foaming at their mouths and wetting their pants earlier this week with talk about impeachment, I can’t help but compare them to the alligator.

They all have the same Big Mouth/Big Head small brain proportion as the alligators do.

In fact, when I saw this picture of the alligator, I couldn’t help but think how much it reminded me of Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Rachael Maddow, Joe Scarborough, the late night comedy guys, SNL clowns, the DNC and so many others. The size of the mouth in particular looks very much like Hillary.

When are these guys going to realize that you are all just blowing smoke. Trump is here to stay. There are no grounds for impeachment. Obama did far worse things on his watch and Slick Willy did way worse. In “Mr Zippers” case, I am not even   going to discuss his infidelity and impeachment, I am talking about over 500,000 good jobs lost each year during those “glorious” Clinton years which were replaced with low paying, part time paper hat jobs.

IBMs claim to fame was that in their long and glorious history, they never laid anyone off. That is untill the Clinton term. Then they laid people off 10,000, 30,000 at a time. So did the US Postal office, Baxter International and more.

The #1 employer during Clinton’s terms was a temp hiring agency.

AND let’s not forget about NAFTA. The US economy is still reeling from that disaster. Thanks Bill.

But yet we have been led to believe that those were great years for the US economy.  Massive job creation. ENT! FAKE NEWS in action. They are lucky that facebook and twitter were not around back in those days to tell the truth.

And Bill has much better skills than Hillary.  So imagine what direction we would be going in now if God forbid we had a President Hillary in charge! OMG!!!!!!! It would make the great depression of the 1930s look like a tea party.

So whenever you turn on the FAKE NEWS-MSM, CNBC, CNN, MSNBC, your local paper, your local paid for by the democrats news, hear a disgruntled Hillary supporter bash Trump, see any member of the DNC talk  through their butt and even some so called republican “leaders” who are not leaders at all (John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Kasich come to mind immediately among others) Just call them alligators. Although to be fair, the alligators are much better creatures than the anti-Trump huksters.

Remember:

Big Head

Big Mouth

small brain

no substance.

How many more sophisticated Pershing Square investors will redeem this week???

June 4, 2017

 

Why are so many Pershing Sq investors still redeeming and so few new investors buying in? Lost faith in Bill Ackman.

An old axiom in the the markets is “Never try to catch a falling knife.” Now where is this more accurate than with Pershing Sq in which investment returns have fallen sharply over the last 2 years and still dropping.

In fact, it is now more apparent than ever that Ackman is pulling his hair out trying to save Pershing Sq and attempt to prevent it     from becoming Gotham Partners II.

Notice how Ackman is now  going back to 15 year returns. Why? Because over 15 years his funds do show a profit. Big problem though. The investments in those early years 10-15 years ago have burned out. The big question all Pershing Sq investors have now is;

What have you done for us recently Ackman?” 

Answer is Lose $$$$$$.

A new motto is:

Lose Money Now – Ask Ackman How!

And how true.

We also now know that Ackman has sold off a lot of his investments. Most of which he was bragging about not long ago which went sour. If in fact Ackman ever did really have any magic, obviously that magic is now gone.

Most feel that Ackman never had any real magic or great strategies, he was just plain lucky. Like the proverbial blindfolded monkey.  He is no Buffet. My 12 yr old gets better returns in his proxy account.

If you have been a investor in Pershing Sq  and mirroring Ackman’s trades, you have seen double digits losses over the last two years just as I and others  predicted back in 2014. I see Pershing Sq as showing another major loss in 2017.

Those of us who have been in the game even prior to the Ackman-Herbalife saga, know very well about Ackman and his many mistakes. Yes he has had a few hits, perhaps one big hit. But so many misses. I honestly don’t know any other hedge fund manager who has been more wrong more often than Ackman.

A week ago, Ackman was bragging about some “Mystery” investment that he invested in and is excited about.  He wouldn’t say what it is which I believe is a red flag suggesting that this is just a smoke screen to try to slow down the massive redemptions he is getting at Pershing Sq.

However, even if Ackman does  have a investment that has grown by 20%, how much   does that affect his fund overall? It may bring it to a 2%-3% return.  I repeat, Ackman’s fund at Pershing Sq has been down double  digits 2 years in a row. So at best, a 3% return in 2017 if that happens will leave Pershing Sq investors and others who follow Ackman’s reckless trades with a 3 year loss of  about-37%. I don’t know of any other hedge  fund or other manager who has done anywhere near this poorly.

AND……….As Herbalife continues on it’s growth mode,  this will eat into Pershing Sq even more. Not to mention Ackman’s  other investments are not performing very well.

Don’t put too much credence into Ackman’s claim that he has some super investment that has grown by 20%. Ackman has a poker face and talks a lot. There is a reason why he has been called “A modern day version of PT Barnum” It is all show and drama. Look at his track record. Yuck!

Ackman also maintains a bearish attitude towards Herbalife no matter how wrong he always turns out to be.  I am certain that he will maintain a long term short position on HLF even when it takes Pershing Square to 0 and becomes Gotham Partners II.

Pershing Sq had nearly $20 billion in assets a year ago. Now it is down under $10 billion and declining fast. More and more Pershing Sq investors are redeeming daily. And few new investors are buying into this horrible fund and for good reason. It is expensive, has nose bleed fees and commission and has a horrible, absolutely horrible return. Most of all, look who manages it. Not an enviable record. And who wants to pay so much to lose $$$? You don’t need Ackman for this.  In fact, novice investors would do much better to invest on their own and generally massively outperform Ackman. My 12 yr old son does better with his proxy account.

Carl Icahn gave Ackman some good advice months ago……..

Carl Icahn, despite the negative attacks against him from smaller billionaire with a rapidly declining net worth Billy Ackman, tried to give Billy boy some good advice months ago.  He said that Ackman had gotten too emotional over the HLF short play and was trying to win a bet against Herbalife that was impossible He said that Ackman had “lost perspective” and indeed he has. And now obviously Pershing Sq is paying for Ackmans ineptness.

We all know that Ackman was responsible for taking Gotham Partners down. The once hedge fund office is now a dress factory. Ackman takes miscalculated risks and loses way too often.  And he loses B-I-G Hence, so many of his Pershing Sq investors are redeeming shares and washing their hands of Ackman. Who can blame them?

Just a few months ago, Pershing Sq took a huge hit at the expence of Ackmans foolishness and bad investment judgement with a $4 billion+ loss on VRX. And all this time Ackman was telling his sheep to hold on. He had carefully researched this company. The stock would bounce back.  Or so he said. Ackman doubled down by buying more shares as the stock dipped incurring even more losses. Finally selling when $VRX hit $10 for once again a $4 BILLION +LOSS. Ouch! Bad move. Bad judgement.  But it wasn’t his first and won’t be his last.

But does Ackman really know what he is doing in investments? Doesn’t look like it.

Do you remember when VRX used to trade @ $33.51 just a few months ago and Ackman was still so bullish on it? Ackman bought VRX at $270 and rode it all the way down to $10 before finally selling.  Does this sound like good judgement to you?

Today,  Herbalife (HLF) is up again. Make that three days in row. Ackman and his shills are wrong again. I don’t care if they hold on to their reckless short HLF positions. Hey, it’s their money not mine. I bet their phones are ringing from brokers with Margin Calls. 

In other news, TESLA is also up today. Didn’t Seeking Alpha with their FAKE NEWS STORIES  tell us to sell that last week? And what did I say? Hold on right? So once again, irregardless of Herbalife and HLF stock, who is right and who is wrong as usual,  the FAKE NEWS on Seeking Alpha which is why we call it FAKE NEWS!. qtr research needs to move out of Chris Irons bedroom, out of stock market speculation and  Chris Irons needs to move into something else, like maybe mowing grass? Perhaps he can do that without screwing up.

December, 2012 will go down as the worst time in Bill Ackmans life and will indelibly be etched in time as the time when Bill Ackman made the worst mistake of  his life—–Lying about Herbalife.

Every investor/trader shorts stocks from time to time. Nothing wrong with that.  Typically, savvy, sophisticated, educated and successful traders will research the companies and   stocks before shorting them, they will use technical analysis and other tools to determine whether a stock is ripe for shorting. Heretofore, no one has ever shorted a stock that successfully beat earnings 22 quarters in a row,  with a company that was and still is in a huge growth mode and used old, outmoded and debunked crap to create short position and then call it “A illegal PYRAMID SCHEME and their stock is headed to Zero” as Billy boy Ackman did to Herbalife at that now infamous informercial he mislabeled a presentation back in December 2012.

Billy boy Ackman is not what he claims to be. He has been apropiately named “The Worst of Wall Street”  Just ask anyone who follows his trades or anyone of the many who have redeemed shares and walked away from Pershing Sq. because of Ackman’s very bad investment decisions. 

http://www.therealbillackman.com

ackman the worst of wall street

*FACT-Ackman’s thesis was all wrong and still is. Where is Sean Dineen these days????

*FACT-Pershing Sq was having a bad year in 2012 and Ackman need to work some magic   so squew the numbers. So why not go after Herbalife? So he thought.

*FACT-Ackman did open a huge $1 billion plus short POS on HLF and allegedly bought December, 2012 puts.

*FACT-The Sohn Conference Informercial was conducted just days before options expiration

*FACT-Ackman would not allow anyone from Herbalife to be in attendance at this Sohn Conference Informercial to offer a point/counter point discussion. What was Ackman afraid of? Obviously the truth and he wanted nothing to ruin the big gains he was expecting from those puts and short POS before the end of December to sugar coat prospectuses to lure in more victims into his Pershing Sq fund scheme(Or is that Perishing??)

Ackman sure created an incredible Fairytale with his FAKE NEWS story on Herbalife and he continues with that FAKE NEWS story to this day. Big problem though: Ackman has been taking a licking on this insane, crazy, reckless, winless HLF short bet.

Despite the hype and drama, bringing in his buddies which included 2 AGs and a US senator, numerous appearances on CNBC, conferences and memos, blogs etc. after nearly 5 years Ackman is deeper in the  hole with his HLF short than ever before and barely hanging on by his fingernails

12279113_1070978669588105_5080892329987942338_n

To date Ackman has lost an estimated $7 million on this HLF short bet. To make any profit on this at all, HLF has to drop to $30. To make a huge profit, it has to drop to under $20. After the Sohn Conference Informercial, HLF did drop as low as $24 but rallied back up. And then when Carl Icahn came on the scene, it really rallied and went as high as $84 in January 2014.

Through it all, Ackman has been appearing on CNBC, sending out memos, apearing all over, frantically trying to find someone who will pretend to be a Herbalife “victim” still says “Herbalife is a pyramid scheme and the stock is going to zero” and everytime he says that, HLF goes higher, higher and higher. While HERBALIFE continues to grow constantly adding more and more and more preferred customers and distributors.

Ackman would be better off trying to shovel sand off of a beach. Same result!

Clearly Ackmans fairytale, and that is all it ever was has turned into a nightmare for this failing billionaire. More and more Pershing Sq investors are redeeming shares, fewer new accounts are being opened.  Ackman had no earthly clue what he was doing when he started this nor did he care that he as putting tens of thousands of HLF longs at risk,  4.5 million Herbalife distributors, 8,000 Herbalife employees without a job or a business opportunity that they  worked long and hard at and potentially leaving millions of happy customers all over the world without a product. Why? All because of Greed & Ego.

While Ackman bashes Herbalife, authentic billionaires who truly understand network marketing,  business and want to help people succeed, fully support it.

I value the word of these wise and very successful people over shyster, scammer Billy Boy Ackman. 

Regarding that short bet, Yeah I know Ackman claimed he was going to donate any profits to charity. C’mon.

Who invests $1 billion to short a stock and then passes it on to charity? This was all smoke and mirrors.  His eyes were bleeding green and he was chopping at the lips thinking of the billions he could make if this scam  against Herbalife really worked.  And he would look like a do goody to the uneducated and uninformed.  He would look like the “good guy” when he reality, he is quite the opposite.

Thank God it didn’t work.

Herbalife posted first quarter earnings on Thursday that were a blowout substantially exceeding analysts expectations and putting to rest the concerns that the FTC determination would seriously impact Herbalife going forward.

AS many of us have been stating for some time, there would be no serious impact. Herbalife has always been focused on retail sales along with recruiting. Sure there were some shysters who did not follow company guidelines and broke FTC rules by front end loading and selling worthless tools like stale leads, web sites and trying to create telemarketing heroes out of people with no previous sales experience and offered very little if any valuable assistance. Once reported, these people were terminated and actually went with other companies.

A walk down memory lane

Interesting is that when these violaters were reported  and terminated by Herbalife, the Ackman shills were all over the old Yahoo message boards as well as other personal blogs, websites stating “Top leaders leaving Herbalife” This started back in December 2012. They never mentioned that these “Top Leaders” were terminated by Herbalife. Surprised? I wasn’t

The same garbage, not surprisingly started to appear in the Seeking Alpha Fake stories.  Back then, there were as many as 5 anti-HLF “stories” appearing daily in SA. I challenged the authors to  retract their comments and indicate that these “top reps” were actually terminated. Of course they never did. It would take away from their drama and lies. Eventually though the truth came out. Especially when Carl Icahn came on the scene in January 2013.

It should be noted that these anti-HLF people (probably one person with a bunch of aliases) were predicting HLF would hit zero by March, 2013. Hello. It is May, 2017. And we are a long way from zero.

They also constantly reiterated Ackman’s insane line and made it their own:

“HLF is going to 0 and I have a strong sell on it.”

Oh really? What qualifies him to set a target price or a rating on it? Answer: Nothing!

Chris Irons aka Birdbrain quoththeraven

de-1120-123453-front

The big mouth in all of this tried to make it appear as though he was a big roller. Some big time analyst or celebrity. Using an alias, he even tried to suggest he was Hugh Heffner! LOL!  In fact, by his own admission he later, about 2 years later with help from Herbie admitted he was in fact “just a little guy” Yes indeed but he never revealed just how little. That was a few years ago.  Now he is trying to play the “big roller” role again and wants some people to think he really knows something. Clue: He doesn’t

Of course I am referring to Chris Irons aka quoththeraven.  I know you already knew it.  And as a another walk down memory lane, who was it that revealed his real first name was Chris and was about to reveal his whole name until he did it himself, embarrassed by my letting the cat out of the bag? Of course, I was the one. And keep in mind, prior to all of this, Chris Irons aka quoththeraven tried to convince everyone that he would never, never, never,never, ever release him real name because he was getting so much hate mail and death threats. LOL—–The drama continued. So much bull. But once I let people know that I was about to reveal his real name, the so called “Hate mail” and Deaththreats” were no longer an issue.

Chris Irons challenges John Hempton to a debate. Really Chris????

Almost too funny, I got a memo from someone who still subscribes to Chris Irons aka quoththeravens twitter feed that he wants to challenge John  Hempton, anytime, anywhere. While I can’t speak for John Hempton, I would love to see this happen. Is there any doubt that John Hempton would mop the floor with qtr??? Have you ever read any of quoththeravens (Chris Irons) stuff? He is not a very good communicator. Communication is not his forte at all. And he is never accurate. Hempton is. And Hempton understands investing. Chris Irons does not. He is always so wrong. My $$$$ are on Hempton, that is if Chris Irons actually accepts. But rest easy, he won’t. Just more of the drama.

I also received several messages from people sending me tweets that quoththeraven posted on his quoththeraven twitter page. I’ve been blocked and thankful for that just as I am continually deleting all of quoththeravens fake aliases from my twitter account. Interesting that this guy is so obsessed with following me.

Apparently on Thursday and Friday Irons came out like a raving lunatic. He couldn’t believe the earnings results nor how the street reacted and HLF soared. Was like Ackman’s ill fated “Herbalife death blow” in July 2014 (hahahahahaha) Some deathbow. Ackman looked like the fool he is as did Irons and whatever other followers Ackman has and HLF shorts. They were in shock. No response for about a week. Then Irons tried to spin it as he always does and the market laughed as they always do.

And BTW, 3 years ago Matt Stewart who many people think is just another alias for Chris Irons challenged Lenny Clements to a debate. Lenny accepted. But where was Matt?!!!!!! Lenny is a recognized authority on MLM. Stewart? He has an opinion and an agenda and is always wrong.

Matt also suggested that the Michigan AG and then all AGs across America would “pile on” Herbalife after two of Ackman’s buddies, both AGs initated action.  That died very quickly and no other AGs did anything.

Chris Irons aka quoththeravens reaction to HLF earnings and market on Thursday nite and Friday. 

quoththeraven after amargin call

Getting back to last Thursday, in Chris Irons world, earnings were bad. The sky was falling for Herbalife. Vindication for Ackman. Billy boy was right, yada, yada, yada. Funny the street didn’t see it that way as HLF SOARED in AH trading and continued to run up on Friday.  Chris Irons aka quoththeraven is obviously living in his own fantasy world and no doubt he thinks the rest of the world is oblivious to the truth and we, as he puts it so often, “just don’t get it” LOL!!!!!!!!

Moving on to 2nd quarter earnings

All we heard from the Anti-HLF’ers since HLF’s 4th qtr earnings was that the FTC decision would show up in Q1 earnings. Well we just had them, Herbalife did extremely well and predictably, the new argument from the Herbalife bashers is that it will show up in 2nd qtr earnings. In case these guys missed it, Herbalife had a strong outlook for 2017 and spring is always a good time for Herbalife sales. People want to lose weight for summer beachtime and warm weather season.  Not to mention their diversified product line of wellness, skin care and sports  supplements. Look for 2nd qtr earnings to also exceed.

And of course when Herbalife exceeds earnings in Q2, then the bashers will say wait until Q3, Q4, (yawn)

Some people suggest that there is a final test coming to see which side is  right, Ackman or Herbalife. Look at the last 4 1/2 years and look at 1st qtr earnings for 2017. Look at the reaction from the markets. I think it is obvious which side is right and pardon my grammar, but it ain’t Ackman. It is over for Ackman.

Carl Icahn has tightened his grip on Billy boy. Choking the life out of him. And Icahn is expected to be building on his position.  Good bye Billy.  You’re just a crybaby in the school yard. Always were, always will be.

icahn-ackman

Then some say that the bulls are winning for now.  For now????  The bulls have been winning this since January 2013!!!!!!!!!!

Some keep bringing out the FTC fine from last June. “That Herbalife paid a $200 million fine in July to end the FTC’s investigation into whether the multi-level marketer of diet shakes was a pyramid scheme, as Ackman had accused.”  Or that is how they say it.

Herbalife DID NOT pay the fine to end the FTCs investigation. FTC does not negotiate with companies that break the law. It was certain Herbalife distributors who broke the law and thus Herbalife ended up paying a fine for their improper actions. As already mentioned above, these distributors were terminated by Herbalife and their actions were never condoned by Herbalife and clearly against Herbalife policy.  And most of that fine went back to Herbalife via fmr Herbalife distributors who returned to the company at the end of qtr 4 and beginning of q1 and used that money to buy more Herbalife products. Where were the co called “Herbalife victims” Only in Ackmans imagination.

In fact, Herbalife agreed to distinguish between distributors who sell the product and preferred members who merely want to use the products. Ackman, who knows little or nothing about network marketing or even how to pick stocks as evidenced by his huge losses on HLF short not to mention VRX recently and JCP, BORDERS, TARGET etc.  scoffed at this idea and still claims that he sees HLF going to zero. But of course he does. His reputation is at stake and he has already lost approximately $700 million on this very reckless and poorly research HLF short play. And by the way, didn’t he also say he was bullish on VRX right up until he pulled the plug and sold it AT A $4 BILLION LOSS??? Ackman’s word is not his bond. His word is meaningless. He will say he is staying with his HLF short POS and then pull the plg and cover seconds later.

Herbalife reported 18,652 new members in North America in the first quarter, that number does not include the preferred members, a contingent that is several times larger than the distributors who actually sell the product to others. (Since Herbalife began separating these two categories in mid-January, 80% of new U.S. recruits signed up as preferred members, the company said.)

Previously, the Herbalife bashers claim was that Herbalife did not have any customers. Now Herbalife is proving they do. And now the Ackmanaholics Herbalife bashers look at this as bad news for Herbalife??????????? I don’t think so. It proves what Herbalife has been saying all along. That there are real customers. And I am certain that is the way the street saw it too based on the huge rally on Thursday AH and on Friday.

The total combined number of new U.S. distributors and preferred members is just slightly below what it was last year: In the first quarter of 2016, Herbalife disclosed 83,276 new North American recruits, of which about 80,200 were in the U.S. This year, the number was 78,900 for the same period, a decline of 1.7%, according to the company.

But, take into consideration the constant attacks by Ackman and his shills. Contrary to what Ackman and his shills say, this has leaked out to the general public and has affected Herbalife to some degree. Mainstreet is very much aware of this and not because of that Ackman informercial mislabeled a documentary.  However, in spite of Ackman’s unsubstantiated remarks, Herbalife still continued to grow massively outpacing other network marketing-MLM companies in North America.

And of course, you have to take into account the current state of the economy and that USA had a presidential election in 2016. These things always create turmoil in the the markets.  ALL told, Herbalife’s numbers were very impressive if not extraordinary.

Even before the quarter ended, there were signs that Ackman and other Herbalife detractors had underestimated the number of consumers amid the company’s distributor ranks. This is nothing new. In 2012, Ackman also underestimated and misjudged when herbalife reps would renew. It was a huge miscalulation.

When the FTC sent settlement checks earlier this year to supposed Herbalife “victims” who had supposedly never made any money as distributors, many of those who are now preferred members received them. Fans of the diet and nutrition products who never intended to resell them, some of those people said they planned to spend the settlement money on more Herbalife shakes and protein bars. Put another way, that FTC fine is being redirected  back to Herbalife and Herbalife did not pay a fine to end the FTC investigation. The FTC does not operate that way. If Herbalife was guilty of any wrong doing, they would have been shut down. They weren’t. Case closed. Except in the minds of Ackman and his nutty follower(s)

Some will remember that Herbalife faced a major challenge back in 1985. Prior to the media attack then, Herbalife’s sales were over $512 million annually and were up to over $90 million a month in January, 1985. After the media attack, Herbalife sales dropped all the way down to only $10 million annually.  This occurred in the 1980s. We all know Herbalife came roaring back. Also, I think that challenge was far more potent that what little weenie Ackman has offered. Herbalife is very resilent and has always proved that they are following the laws. Legal and ethical.

The FTC was yanked into this by Ackman via his buddy Sen. Markey.  What was the result? Ackman lost again and we haven’t heard from Sen. Markey. I wonder if he is still close friends with ACKMAN after this embarrassment???? And how about those two AGs who were such good buddies with Billy boy, where are they? Also been very quiet.

Sen. Markey may be eating ice cream cones, but he has had very little to do with his (former??) good buddy Billy boy Ackman

sen ed markey

As already mentioned, that FTC settlement to so called Herbalife “victims” has brought more former distributors and preferred members back to Herbalife and they are using that money to buy more Herbalife products.  So the settlement is actually being redirected back to Herbalife. Interesting. Or at least much of it.

Also, Herbalife as we all know has their WinBack program in place which has been very successful bringing back more former distributors and preferred members. And of course  Herbalife reps are hard at work building their businesses. I see the button “Lose Weight Now – Ask Me How” everywhere and Herbalife reps inviting people to their nutrition clubs. Speaking of which, I love the nutrition clubs. They are very powerful.

Another thing, spring is always the best time of the year for Herbalife as people are focusing on losing weight for summer and warm weather season. Expect sales to SOAR. And there are ads all over for Herbalife. Not to mention that Herblaife’s product line goes beyond just weight loss to sports supplements, wellness products, skin care and more.  All of these things are positives and I expect Herbalife to have a OUTSTANDING 2nd quarter.

The squeeze on Ackman tightened up considerably last Thursday. Expect to get even tighter.  MOASS is here.

I also enjoy playing with quoththeraven aka Chris Irons, Ackman, his braindead shills and the stupid and ignorant HLF shorts.  Every single time they open their mouths via the internet with outrageus, ridiculous “what ifs”  and “maybes” Doom & Gloom predictions, yet they are always wrong and I am always right. I look forward to doing it again next quarter and watching them be oh sooo wrong yet again. My guess is that Ackman will be gone by then. But this guy will continue. I guess he really needs that $35 an article and a penny per click from the garbage he writes on SA.

Hey Chris, so there is no hard feelings, I have  some friends in Philly who may be able to help you. They are looking for a gardener and someone to mow their lawn. Probably will pay better than writing garbage on Seeking alpha and more ethical than promoting Pump & Dump pennystock junk. Of course, this is assuming you really do live in Philly and are fit enough to    run a lawn mower and do  garndening work.  Do you really live in Philly? Perhaps that is total bull too.

Ackmanaholics and shills are really funny.  No matter  how many times they are wrong, which is everytime, they still maintain they are right and think they can manipulate t he market with their b.s.  It never works! They are like the guy who hits himself on the head with a hammer. He should only have to do that one time to realize, “Ouch, that hurts.”

Image result for image of a man hitting himself on the head with a hammer

Herbalife had great earnings as I and so many other experienced investors indicated long before earnings was announced. I made it obvious that I was long a week before and was expecting great earnings. I increased my POS on HLF, bought calls, sold puts and bought more shares. And do you know how many companies would love to have the numbers that Herbalife produced on Thursday? Do you know how many MLM companies would love to acquire 83,276 new distributors just in North America in 1 yr and without the noise and distraction of that lunatic Ackman???

Clearly, what Herbalife did on Thursday was nothing short of mind boggling.

BTW, here are some of my other holdings. Obviously, I can’t put an image of my account on here.  I know how to invest successfully. Unlike Ackman and Chris Irons. BTW, did you know that even though Chris Irons along with his idol Ackman, makes wise cracks about Herbalife reps, calls them “get rich quick money hungry scam artists” Do you know how he makes his living? He is a PUMPnDUMP pennsystock promoter.

And interesting too, in another tweet that I received made by Chris Irons aka quoththeraven, he indicates he wants the name calling stopped but then proceeds to name call Michael O. Johnson and new Herbalife CEO. Well, well. Those of us who ever read his stuff have come to expect this.  No surprise.

Hey Chris, my friends in Philly really are looking for someone to mow their grass and be their gardener. At least this would allow you to make an honest living, for a change.  And no doubt more $$$ than what you make now. IF you are healthy enough to do it that is.stock-photo-cute-man-mowing-lawn-in-the-backyard-of-his-house-191098076

Trump is still overcoming incredible odds to Make America Greater Than Ever Before.

May 17, 2017

It has been over 6 months since Donald J. Trump became President Elect Trump. I have to wonder how many people realize the significance of what was accomplished here.

To win, President elect Trump had to beat the Clinton machine, the Obama machine, the democrats, the establishment, George Soros, a billion dollar + anti Trump ad campaign, insiders, anti-Trumpers, never-Trumpers and even some republicans and some people who were still stuck on old stodgy beliefs. Donald Trump had to beat all of that.

14064134_1292244110809169_624234406141163356_n

 January 20th could’t come fast enough.

He had to take on 16 very professional, high quality opponents and he beat them all. When Donald Trump became the republican nominee, he did so setting a record number of votes far greater than what was ever achieved by any other republican candidate in history including Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.

cvgq1muxiaaybp_

By winning last November, he helped republicans keep the house and the senate. So now republicans can actually get something done without interference from the left as has happened in the past.

He has made the republican party stronger than ever. Bringing in more new blood and rekindling many who left the party in disgust.

There were riots at Trump events assembled by people apparently paid for by the Hillary campaign.

There were lies about him being a sexual predator and much worse. Most of these attacks came from Hillary and the Clinton campaign. Talk about the pot calling the kettle black. Need anyone remind Hillary of her infamous husband, perhaps the worst sexual predator of all????

He also had to fend off a vicious attack by supposedly GOP supporter and self proclaimed savior Mitt Romney in March of 2016. Romney made a scathing speech attacking then candidate Trump. He pretended to be the “White Knight” to save the republican party from the horror of God forbid President Trump.  Only four years earlier, Romney praised Trump as the now POTUS Trump appeared at Romney rallies when Mitt was running for POTUS and Trump endorsed him.

 

Of course we all now know that Romney failed just as badly with his attack on Trump in March of 2016 as he did in his presidential bid in 2012. A year when America was ripe for a republican POTUS and a win should have been easy.

 

13221530_10153443070247391_5802763807876347352_n

 

For those of us who know the real Mitt Romney, his actions were not surprising.  Only two weeks after his horrible, failed attacks on now President Trump in March, 2016,  telling everyone how he (Romney) was here to save the republican party, Mitt was seen colluding with the Clintons at a fund raiser and actually donated to Hillary to assist her in her bid to become POTUS! Hello??????

The newest stunt at that time by Mitt Romney was to lend financial support to Hillary while at the same time trying to start a third party. Is there anyone out there anymore in the republican party who really can say they respect Mitt Romney anymore? Does this sound like a leader of the republican party? Or a leader at all? Ask the people in Massachusetts what they thought of 1 term governor Romney and how badly he messed up their state. The good news is that the republican party is in much better hands these days. And so is  Massachusetts.

Romney is like a modern day Judas working with any side.

Last November,  2016, Romney was back now trying to work with now president elect Trump and trying to get in his administration.  FAT CHANCE!

Good bye and good riddance to Judas Romney.

We also saw certain Hollywood “elitists” come out, support Hillary, raise enormous amounts of money while trashing Trump. What was the result? American people may like these actors and entertainers, but they do not respect their political views and lies. Clearly, these Hollywood elitists did not have the influence they though they would.. And how did they react?

We saw this in January with Ashley Judd, Madonna, Merle Streep and others as they took cheap shots, even  vulgar attacks at Trump. Madonna alluded to potential violence even bombing or burning down the WH!!! Can you say sore losers? I can.

Interesting enough, even with these Hollywood stars appearing at her events, Hillary cold still not get even close to the large crowds that Trump was generating and by the way, still generating today with his Thank You Tours and other rallies.

I understand that many people enjoyed seeing those entertainers for free and indicated that they had no intent of ever voting for Hillary.

Then there was the Hillary supporters who needed cocoa, support groups, aromatherapy and more. Poor, poor Hillary supporters. Their assumed can’t lose candidate got her but whipped.

Any of these things would have crushed any other presidential candidate. Yet Donald Trump never wavered, weebled or woobled. He stayed firm. He conducted 2-3 rallies a day everyday. On Sunday before the November 8th election, he conducted 5 rallies in 5 different states. Unheard of!!!!!!

So now he is our POTUS. I slept well on Wednesday morning November 9th. I feel that these United States of American are finally in good hands. I am certain that he will MAGA and Clean The Swamp. And as I look at POTUS Trumps first 100 days, he is doing just that.

Even after he won easily with 313 Electoral College votes to Hillary’s barely over 200, the Hillary supporters were not done. No they wanted recounts. Result? The recount showed Trump had even more votes!

They argue that Hillary won the popular vote. So what? The popular vote doesn’t count and for good reason. It is so unreliable. A closer look into how Hillary won the popular vote showed massive cheating with illegal votes from aliens, deceased names somehow    got to vote, some people voted 2,3, 4 or more times in different states.  That is how Hillary won the popular vote. And why the popular  vote does not and should never count. Yet in the EC, Hillary won less than 1/3 of the counties. Popular? NO. Cheater? Yes.

It has since been uncovered that Hillary was given the questions to debates prior to the debates. Trumps phones were tapped and the election was massively rgged for Hillary to win. Yet she still lost! And the the other   side is calling foul??? C’mon!!!!

Now there is talk about why Trump fired Comey. Really? Comey was no more qualified to be FBI director than Hillary was qualified to be POTUS. The democrats were screaming for Trump to fire this turd for months. And when he finally does,  they freak out.

The latest FAKE NEWS is  about Trump supposedly “leaking” info to the Russians. Even though debunked, the media is still running with this crap. But where was the furor over Hillary selling Uranium to the Russians, a real issue? There was none.

Where was the furor over Hillary risking national security while she was the worst SOS ever? There was none. Where was the furor over Hillary deleting over 30,000 emails? There was none.

For the past 4 1/2 years, my focus has been on exposing Bill Ackman as a lying fraud.  That has worked admirably. Today there is no doubt that my argument against Bill Ackman was right on.  Now my focus is on exposing the MSM, Soros, the DNC, never Trumpers, Anti-Trumpers etc which is an even bigger fraud than Ackman.  And Ackman is a huge fraud!

In the near future, we will see that these groups attacking our POTUS will have failed just as badly as Ackman did with his insane and self serving attack on Herbalife.  Keep in mind that these groups trying so hard to make sure that POTUS Trump fails, are also trying to make sure America fails.  Are we American’s going to stand back and watch this happen? I don’t think so.

Just as Bill Ackman never realized or counted on the huge army of Herbalife supporters, the left wing libtards, anti-Trumpers etc. do not realize the even much larger army of Trump supporters out there who are even  further enraged now more than ever.

They had to endure 8 years of a totally incompetent POTUS who continually lied to us. We are now $20 trillion in debt thanks to the prior “leadership” in the WH. This is totally unaccpetable.

From 2008 to 2016, we had a POTUS who continually lied to us.  And the other choices didn’t appear very promising either. Does anyone think McCain, Romney or the others would have been any good? I would have liked to have given Rudy Guiliani or Herman Caine a shot. Perhaps Hucklebee, the others? LOL! The Three Stooges or the Marx Brothers would have been better.

Speaking of McCain, he continues to come out with crazy ideas. Don’t know if his age is catching up to him, or perhaps he still hasn’t recovered from his massive loss to Obama in 2008. What credibility does he have? Has anyone forgot how he cancelled his appearance on the David Letterman show and totally lied to everyone as far as why he could not be there?

 

There have been many other misteps by McCain.  Perhaps he was a hero. Perhaps he was a great man. But now…???????? He seems to be way off his game and hardly someone with any credibility.  As bad as Obama was, can you imagine where this country would be if we had a President McCain.

When the stock market crashed 1,000 points in 1/2 hour back in 2008, then presidential candidate laughed it off and said that the stock market has no relation to the economy. What? Then he came back and admitted he doesn’t understand the economy. No kidding! Not to mention so many other mistakes. Clearly, McCain was not presidential material not are his opinions valuable or credible.

Prior to that, we  had to endure other POTUSs who were primarily bought and liable to the establishment.  Now we finally have a man as POTUS who cannot be bought, is a proud American, wants to MAGA and is doing just that and they are trying oh so hard to shut him down.

 

While the MSM, Soros, the DNC, the never Trumpers, tHE ANTI-Trumpers, the crying Hillary Libtards continually attack Trump with totally FAKE NEWS and lies, others see the attacks as a serious attack on American security.

 

 

For those who for whatever reason are enthralled and thrilled that these attacks are happening to POTUS Trump, how does it really make you feel to know that they are also taking down, or at the very least, seriously endangering national security to the United States of America????

They couldn’t stop him from getting elected and they won’t stop him now. Moreover, they will not and cannot stop us.

Here is why HLF stock may be headed to over $300 a share in the next few years……….

It was reported back in 2012 that recovery in health & wellness programs was underway.  It appears as though those predictions were not accurate, they were conservative.

Strong recovery of the global health and wellness market is on the way, with sales recording 6.5% value growth (fixed exchange rates) in 2011.  Products offering specific health benefits, such as fortified/functional, or those renowned for their natural health properties drove value sales, with rates above 7%. Growth was further fuelled by the developments in the emerging markets as China and Brazil alone contributed US$15 billion in new sales that year. Steady real term growth of 7.2% (current prices) is expected to continue to 2017, with global health and wellness sales on the way to hit a record high of US$1 trillion by 2017.

Note that  one of the emerging markets mentioned is China. Herbalife has a huge presence in China. Although this is hardly news,  I do believe that the power of being in China has been was under estimated. Not mention the emphasis on weight loss and wellness worldwide.

Herbalife has presence in all of these countries. Notice that China is #1 and USA is #3. Expect these markets to explode for Herbalife as we move forward.

While some of these stats go back to 2012, it is widely believed that Herbalife has been artificially held back by the Ackman scam, relentless attacks that covered all over the media. The attacks were not just focused on belaboring current and new distributors, but also to deter potential consumers.

The fact that the FTC fiasco is now over. That the film mislabeled a documentary which was really a informcercial for Ackman, that Ackmans skills and judgement have been seriously questioned and while Herbalife seems to be soaring orbit to orbit in spite of all this, look for a huge EXPLOSION in Herbalife as move through 2017 and beyond.

There is reason to believe that there is lot of held back growth in HLF stock and in Herbalife as a company. With the worst, if not all the bad things now over, now is the time for Herbalife to make a huge run up.

OBESITY IS ON THE RISE.

Despite numerous attempts to curb the growing obesity epidemic, the obese and overweight population is on the rise, crossing the 70% benchmark in Mexico, Venezuela, Australia and US (amongst the population aged 15+). Long-term solutions leading to calorie reduction via healthy lifestyle changes rather than short-term diets are becoming a necessity, hugely benefiting global sales of weight management positioned food and beverages, already at a staggering US$149 billion in 2011.

This represents a massive source of new business for Herbalife. There are  more overweight people now around the world than when Herblaife first started in 1980. MASSIVE MARKET POTENTIAL!

Copycats and competitors don’t cut it.

We have seen the Herbalife copycats out there. Do Vemma and Body By Vi come to mind? Where are they now? While there are imitators and copycats, the johnny come laters always end up short.

Herbalife has mastered this market for decades. Quality products that offer utility. They work. Plus personal one on one counseling from a wellness coach who offers support. Buy a product in a health food or any store, when does someone from the store call you and offer followup? Answer: NEVER!

One of the biggest issues with people trying to lose weight is that most programs never work. Dieters then get discouraged. Aside from the superiority of the product that Herbalife offers, there is once again the support and motivation from the wellness coach who sees to it that clients actually start the program, stay with it and answer any issues the client may have.

This is what makes Herbalife  different.

Dieters are getting tired of the typical diets and other programs marketed out there.

For years, Americans cycled through one brand-name diet after another, each promising a sure method to lose weight. Along the way, Jenny Craig, Weight Watchers and Lean Cuisine made fortunes off their low-calorie, low-fat diet programs and products.

But it seems those days are over, according to industry analysts and nutritionists. “Dieting is not a fashionable word these days,” says Susan Roberts, a professor of nutrition and psychiatry at Tufts University. “[Consumers] equate the word diet with deprivation, and they know deprivation doesn’t work.”

Dieters then get discouraged and quit. There are now reports that these traditionally heavily marketed diets and weight loss programs are falling out of favor. Clients become discouraged and disillusioned with non results and deprivation.  They want something that is fun, simple and easy and most importantly…….actually works. That opens the door for Herbalife via wellness coaches.

“Consumers are not dieting in the traditional sense anymore – being on programs or buying foods specific to programs,” says Marissa Gilbert, an analyst from Mintel who worked on the report. “And there’s greater societal acceptance of different body sizes.”

That’s really hurt the dieting industry, Gilbert says. From summer 2014 to summer 2015, Lean Cuisine’s frozen meal sales dropped from around $700 million to about $600 million, or about 15 percent. Weight Watchers, Medifast and Jenny Craig have also seen revenues wither over the past few years. Sales of diet pills have dropped 20 percent in the last year, according to the Mintel report.

Roberts says it’s likely because many people who wanted to lose weight tried these diets and programs but weren’t successful. “They’ve tried Weight Watchers and Jenny Craig and books and things of their own design,” she says. “It didn’t work.”

Dieters folly.  But this bodes well for Herbalife. Why? Because Herbalife is different. There is no deprivation. No counting calories. No eating frozen  foods. No going to meetings. It is a natural, healthy program using super foods,  provides optimum nutrition with lower calories. And once again, there is the support of the wellness coach.

As Jean Fain, a Harvard Medical School-affiliated psychotherapist and author, has noted, programs like Weight Watchers typically are just “a short-term fix and conditional support for long-standing eating issues” and can even exacerbate them.

With each subsequent failure, people become more skeptical about the products. Some give up on losing weight altogether, Roberts adds.

But many people do still want to lose weight, and increasingly they’re hoping good nutrition and “healthy eating” will get them there, says R.J. Hottovy, a senior equity analyst with market research firm Morningstar. “Consumers are looking for a more holistic, more health and wellness approach,” he says. “The shift in food trends is toward fresher and more natural ingredients.”

Another issue is trying to get good, quality nutrition eating normal foods.  And what really constitutes healthy eating. With Herbalife, you are getting not only a supplement, but also a menu using real foods  guiding the client to use good foods

And while Weight Watchers’ point system emphasizes “natural” fare and home-cooked meals, it’s still manufacturing processed, high-sodium, low-fiber products. It is no secret that sodium is very bad for anyone. Excessive sodium that is and most people are getting far too much sodium in their daily eating.  I’ve never heard of anyone suffering from a   sodium deficiency.

Previously here on twitter and on that ridiculous FAKE NEWS course Seeking alpha, some of those so called “experts” who attack Herbalife actually called  diet soda a “Health Food” hahahahaha. Unfortunately, many people look at diet soda as a safe alternative and drink of choice.  Diet soda is just as bad for you as regular soda. Just less calories. More chemicals. And will ruin your health. Certaintly NOT  a “Health Food”.

What about those prepackaged meals?????

According to Julie Lehman, marketing director for Lean Cuisine, the company, which is owned by Nestle, has put new labels on products that were already cholesterol-free or gluten-free without changing their formulations. “Lean Cuisine is an emblem of the diet culture that we’ve all grown up with. We know that and we want to walk away from that and focus on eating well and eating healthy,” she says. The brand has added “No Preservatives” and “Gluten-Free” and “Non-GMO” labels and a new line of frozen meals, certified organic by the nonprofit Oregon Tilth. “Consumers are demanding some of these things, and we want to offer it to them,” Lehman says.

Roberts is unconvinced. She doesn’t see the products getting any healthier. “They can relabel them, but the meals are not any different. If you open a box of Lean Cuisine or something like that, you’ll see about a quarter cup of veggies in there. Is that an outstandingly healthy meal? By my standards, it’s not.”

People will still be hungry and still feel deprived, and may ultimately not meet weight loss goals, she says. “They’ll give healthy eating a bad name just as they gave dieting a bad name.”

This is the problem with traditional dieting. You reduce calories with real foods, you cut calories and also cut down on nutrition; Even when you choose good foods like veggies, are you getting enough? Hardly. This is why these diets fail . You are hungry. Body is starving. These programs don’t work.  Yet Herbalife succeeds massively.

 

 

Pershing Sq investors redeeming in droves. Ackman’s Losses on insane VRX long bet now estimated to be over $4 billion. Expect Ackman to concede on reckless Herbalife SHORT bet next.

May 4,  2017- Latest estimates are that Ackman lost over $4 billion by holding on to his insane VRX long bet. Shorts got rich off of it. How many times  did the naive Ackman followers warn me  not to bet against Ackman, after all he is a smart guy, is a billionaire with a Harvard degree.  And how many times did I say, “That doesn’t mean squat.”

And how many times  did Ackman call Valeant a “strong buy”, “oversold”,  “has great management” “I’m staying long” etc., etc. Ackman stayed long on VRX and consistently said he was bullish right up to seconds before he unloaded it.  Expect Ackman to do the same with his equally insane, reckless, winless and crazy HLF short play.

As I am writing this, Herbalife just reported first quarter earnings. The results were really bad news for Ackman, Pershing Sq investors, HLF BEARS and anyone who counted Herbalife out and were banking on Ackman’s “genius”

http://www.marketwatch.com/story/shares-of-herbalife-rally-on-upbeat-2017-outlook-2017-05-04?siteid=yhoof2&yptr=yahoo

By the way, I was not alone. Lot’s of people shorted VRX and disregarded Ackman. Just like lots of people are long HLF and are disregarding his equally bad opinions on Herbalife.  How many more bad bets does Ackman have to make before certain people wake up and realize the truth.

ACKMAN is not a great investor HE is the worst of Wall Street.  No hedge fund manager has been more wrong more often than this imbecile.

ackman the worst of wall street

While his followers deify him and see Ackman as godlike and infallible, real investors see him   for what he really is. A clown who would probably sell his first born to make a buck. A modern day PT Barnum full of hype and also full of something else.

bozo ackman

This substantiates a couple of things. First and foremost that Ackman is NOT the great investor/genuis that some people make him out to be.  That his word is utterly worthless. He makes reckless bets and loses massively.  That his shills had no earthly clue what they are talking about. And that those of us who warned about Valeant were right on the money. While those who supported Ackman were as usual so wrong. Like Fly on the Wall aka Quoththeraven using just another alias was so bullish on VRX .

fly being swatted

Ackman is just as wrong on HLF short and CMG long. In fact CMG is looking to be Ackman’s next Valeant RE: Huge Failure that is after he loses his ass(ets) on his reckless HLF SHORT PLAY.

Ackman concedes on Valeant….

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2017-03-13/valeant-falls-as-bill-ackman-sells-out-departs-company-s-board?utm_content=billionaires&utm_campaign=socialflow-organic&utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&cmpid%3D=socialflow-twitter-billionaires

I posted yesterday that Pershing Sq was imploding and 2017 would be their worst year ever! BINGO!

Bill Ackman has finally conceded defeat on Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc.

After waging a costly and outspoken public defense of the controversial drugmaker, its once-biggest champion sold his entire stake in the company at a loss and said he will leave the board.

Precise figures are hard to come by, but public filings suggest that Ackman’s Pershing Square Capital Management may have lost $2.8-$3 billion just on the Valeant shares it owned at the end of 2016, with overall losses likely to be much higher. The shares have plunged more than 95 percent from their peak.

So now Valeant can join the ranks of the other Ackman losses.

1533793_10153166707707391_4578563870518519967_n

Hopefully this proves what I have been saying for a very long time.

  1. Ackman is not a investor. He is a gambler and wrong more often then he is right
  2. He takes huge risks. With VRX he lost an estimated $2.8 billion
  3.  His word is worthless. Up untill yesterday he was stating that  he was still long VRX . .Now he has bailed. He will do the same with the HLF shorts.  He will    say, “Untill the ends of the earth” And then will turn on a dime and exit. HLF shorts will be stuck trying to pick up the pieces.
  4.  Every prediction I have ever made related to Herbalife/Ackman has come true. Everything Ackman and his low paid shills have said, have failed.Now onto Herbalife…….ICAHN BUYS MORE SHARES OF HLF ON Monday, 3/13/2017   http://finance.yahoo.com/video/todays-chart-herbalife-jumps-carl-160147950.html

 March 3, 2017- I originally wrote this back in July and was so severely attacked by the Ackmanaholics. How dare I,  a mere mortal challenge the great Billy Ackman with his Harvard degree and rapidly declining billionaire status? Who am I to challenge this guy? But check the facts. I have been right all along and as usual the little billy ackmans, the Ackmanaholics were as usual, WRONG.

Valeant reported earnings this week. Results were horrible. Even though Ackman has been hyping this company up and stating that it is a strong turnaround, it gets worse all the time for Valeant and no real analyst, or Wall Street as a whole or any experienced investors are excited about Valeant. Bad earnings and more bad news. Isn’t it interesting that VRX stock and Valeant started to fall apart right after Ackman entered the picture? And keeps going lower??? He never gets it right.  As I have been stating for several years now, Ackman’s word is not his bond. He is a modern day PT BARNUM minus the charm, charisma and talent that PT had but the same show boater and in the stock market always so wrong and full of sh’t.

If you ask me, Ackman should trade in his HARVARD DEGREE for a stock market or economics 101 course. He is utterly clueless.

I knew all about Ackman long before his Valeant mistake and even long before his reckless, losing HLF short bet. I predicted he would fall. And he has and so badly. Even worse than I imagined.

Back in 2014, Billy boy created a facade that he wanted to befriend his long time rival Carl Icahn. Ackman said  he wanted forgiveness, was wrong and wanted to be friends. Look at the picture below as this modern day version of Judas makes a fake embrace with Icahn. I am sure Icahn never bought it. Three days later Billy boy went on the offense once again with Icahn and Herbalife and launched his “Herbalife DEATHBLOW” (HAHAHAHAHAHA) Ackman said he was going to unveil a horrible scam that he claimed was Herbalife. We all know the result of that. To refresh you it went horribly against Ackman. No suprise. I and so many other predicted it.

MY POINT??? Many of you are still long on VRX, short on HLF and perhaps still invested in Pershing Squares. You may believe the bullsh’t Ackman diseminates. Don’t believe this guy. No hedge fund manager has been more wrong, more often than Ackman.  Look at VRX and HLF as just two examples. And never believe anything Ackman says or fall for fake hugs. Total b.s. by Ackman and show.  Remember, Judas kissed Jesus just before he betrayed him. Don’t expect anything less from Billy-boy.

And the fact that he is going through a divorce says a lot about his character. Even his own family wants no part of him.

The worst is yet to come for Ackman with VRX.

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/quick-reminder-bill-ackmans-worst-212654036.html

No relief in sight for VRX. Still a strong sell. Still showing the imcompetence of Billy Ackman. Nobody with even one iota of experience or knowledge is banking on Valeant to make a comeback. Both during trading today and after hours VRX showed more losses.  If this were a normal stock that had risen to major highs or was showing some life, this would be no big deal. However, with VRX, this stock has been tanking since it was at $270 no long ago.  Is there a bottom on VRX? It might be 0.

At close: 4:01PM EST
Why is it that everything Ackman touches turns into dog poop?  Now we know why more and more Pershing Sq investors are redeeming shares and more and more VRX longs are selling and going short.
This could be in Ackman’s future. Revolt from unhappy investors who bought into Ackman’s bullsh’t
persh-sq-investors-taking-ackman

 No relief in the near term for Valeant. Future looks very bleak.  While I know that the Valeant CEO  is showing a lot of bravado in making his company look like a turn around target, and Bill Ackman has maintained his bullishness, Wall Street is not impressed. Here is what the analysts are saying:

That was the view of analysts at TD Securities and BMO, among others, who argued that Valeant will need more sales to meaningfully reduce its debt, and JPMorgan’s Chris Schott and team note that there’s still a “long road to recovery” ahead. They explain why:

We continue to see a long road to recovery for Valeant. While select asset divestitures should help stabilize shares and address leverage concerns, we note that the $2.1bn of net proceeds from asset sales to date compare with a roughly $30bn debt position. Currently, we do not see a compelling SOTP argument for shares and see a number of uncertainties remaining around Valeant’s business. We remain Neutral.

At best, and this is being overly optimistic, Valeant has a very long road to recovery. More likely, recovery will never happen. Too much debt. Too many issues.

http://blogs.barrons.com/stockstowatchtoday/2017/01/11/valeant-pharmaceuticals-a-long-road-to-recovery/?mod=yahoobarrons&ru=yahoo&yptr=yahoo

Valeant did have a blipp up yesterday, but before Valeant bulls and the Ackman supporters who all seem to have little if any real stock market experience and knowledge  get all excited, let’s not forget that VRX has dropped over 95% from it’s highs. This was a $270 stock not long ago.  So how meaningful is a brief 18% jump that we saw on Tuesday after such a huge drop and especially when it fell right back into negative territory today?  As one who has been in this game for a very long time, it tells me that Wall Street is not buying the hype. VRX is still a strong sell and likely to fall all the way to 0.

Regarding Ackman, I am sure that when VRX goes to zero, he will be claiming that it is a strong buy because it can’t go any lower.

UPDATE:  October 8, 2016-Did I or did I not warn everyone to NOT listen to Ackman on his bullishness on Valeant. And did I or did I not warn everyone not to go long, but stay short and buy puts on VRX? Looks like those braindead Ackman trolls who were having such a good time making wise cracks to me and other savvy investors on  as usual, were totally wrong and all excited over nothing.

Even though I have been warning about VRX for months and Ackman and his knucklehead shills have been hyping VRX for the same length of time, VRX continues to drop propitiously with still no end in sight to selling.  VRX was down another 15% in September.

http://www.fool.com/investing/2016/10/07/these-2-factors-pushed-valeant-pharmaceuticals-int.aspx?source=yahoo-2&utm_campaign=article&utm_medium=feed&utm_source=yahoo-2&yptr=yahoo

VRX is down over 90% since Ackman got involved with it. Most of Ackman’s portfolio is bleeding red. He has had the worst performance of any hedge fund manager over the last two years. Ackman’s Pershing (or is that perishing) Fund is lagging the S&P 500 and Hedge Funds as a whole not to mention the market as whole for over two years.

Meanwhile, Herbalife which Ackman is short on had been SOARING! To add insult to injury. Last August, twice in a week,  Ackman no doubt deliberately lied by stating that Icahn was selling his shares of Herbalife. It is no secret that Ackman and Icahn are not friends. There is no relationship between them. There was no correspondence. So how could Ackman posisbly know what Icahn was going to do? He couldn’t and didn’t. So essentially he lied deliberately hoping to create a massive selloff on Herbalife which failed massively. Instead, Icahn came out and told the truth which sent HLF shares soaring. Any credibility that Ackman may have had is surely gone now. Icahn added even more to his HLF long POS really putting the squeeze on Ackman.

August 25-2016-The bad news just keeps on coming from Pershing Square and I have to wonder how many more Pershing Square investors redeemed shares this week and last week. Not looking pretty for Ackman. This article came out on Sunday, August 21, 2016. Ackman is selling off even more investments to cover losses. 

http://www.investopedia.com/news/pershing-square-cuts-positions-fight-losses-vrx-zts/?partner=YahooSA&yptr=yahoo

VRX sold off during normal trading and really got walloped in after hours losing almost all of the blipp up inflated gains it made on Tuesday.  23.90 -3.42 (-12.52%)
After hours: Aug 10, 7:59 PM EDT

But wait untill tomorrow. This news came out after the bell on Wednesday:

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/valeant-under-criminal-investigation-over-011946078.html

http://www.wsj.com/articles/valeant-under-criminal-investigation-1470868752?ru=yahoo?mod=yahoo_itp&yptr=yahoo

I and others have warned many times that Ackman is not an investor, but a reckless gambler. Last time he bought a large block of VRX stock, he bought at $89, VRX had a very temporary popup to $97 and then came crashing all the way down to $18.  No savvy investor would stay long let alone buy additional shares in a troubled company like Valeant. But he did it again buying a large block just ahead of Valeant’s earnings expected the news would propel VRX stock to new highs. As we now know, VRX did have a small popup, which was short lived even before the news came out after the bell on Wednesday.  It’s anyone’s guess how low VRX will drop now.

Clearly, Ackman is over  his head in this one. As if shorting HLF wasn’t a very stupid move, he also went long on this dog Valeant.  I wouldn’t want to be a shareholder with Pershing Sq and have Ackman as my financial manager.

SCROLL DOWN BELOW TO SEE LINK TO “WHEN ACKMAN IS WRONG HE IS REALLY WRONG”

AUGUST 10, 2016-Billy Ackman is much like the boy who cried wolf. How many times can he create a fake out to investors before they realize that he is just so full of crap?

Take yesterday for example. Valeant had earnings and posted a HUGE miss. Everyone knew the miss was coming. However, Billy had a meeting with his investors sometime before earnings desperately trying to keep more Pershing Sq. investors from leaving. He   did say there would be news coming from Valeant about a recovery with a positive outlook and strong guidance looking forward. BUT GUYS, Valeant is deep in debt with ever decreasing sales. They missed earnings by a country mile yesterday. Ackman and Valeant can make all sorts of promises. We have been hearing these promises for over a year now. Have they ever been right? Nope. So why believe any different now? You shouldn’t. Experienced investors will recall we heard the same sort of crap from Enron and we all know how that turned out.

While some Pershing Sq investors may be relieved that Ackman made a paper gain of $113 million for them yesterday in his Pershing Sq  fund. This is vs a approx $3 billion loss over the last year. Even a grade schooler can figure out that is still a losing situation.

While experienced investors rely on EPS to judge the forward growth of a stock, Ackman/Persh Share investors seem to be relying on BS and hopium….I hope this stock can turn around. How many investors have lost tons with that mentality.

I maintain my short POS on VRX and in fact increased it with more puts. Note also today that put volume is inordinately high, not a bullish sign. Investors are expecting more selling off on Valeant. Also, should be noted, that it was rumored that most of the pop yesterday came from Ackman who took the cash he recieved from selling Canadian Pacific and dumped it into VRX. This may be seem noble to some, but remember, he did this when VRX was @ $89 too and what happened? VRX tanked shortly thereafter. All Ackman did was expose his investors to even more risk.  REMEMBER: Ackman is a gambler, not an investor. Uusally wrong, always in denial.

When Ackman is wrong, he is really wrong……..

August 9, 2016-Although I was widely ridiculed and called all sorts of names for calling what is true, Pershing Square Investor Redemptions, the facts are in and just as I said, Pershing Sq investors have been redeeming with many more to come. This is just the beginning. The beginning of the end for Ackman’s Pershing Square.

https://finance.yahoo.com/video/eyes-redemptions-pershing-square-160000812.html

This is from July……….

On Tuesday news releases came out announcing for the first time what I have been predicting for over a year and half, that Pershing Sq investors were dumping shares of Ackman’s failing fund.

Of course it didn’t take long for Ackman’s bubbleheads to frivously  to try to  rebutt me with lame excuses as to why investors could not get out of the fund. I countered with examples of how others have gotten out of funds where managers insisted they were locked into for periods of time. Still they insisted that I was wrong, investors could not pull their money out and why should they, after all Ackman was such a “crackerjack” top notch investment expert. (Yeah Right!!!) Ackman is a gambler, not an investor. He has had many losses.

On Tuesday if was revealed that Pershing Square investors redeemed over $600 million from Ackman’s fund. However, the bad news is that these are not the newest numbers. When they come out, expect the amount of redemptions to be much higher. In the not too distant future, we can expect redemptions to easily exceed $1 BILLION.

For the real dope on Bill Ackman   go to http://www.therealbillackman.com

Easy to see why, as I predicted back in December, 2014, Ackman’s Pershing Sq Fund was ripe for a big fall. Anyone with any real investment experience could see it. Of course the Ackman shills were all over me. “You’re insane Ackmanscam. What do you know. Show me some charts. How did you arrive at this?” etc., etc. But what happened? Pershing Sq have their worst performance ever.

Why does everything Ackman  touch turn into dog poop?  And why do his mindless followers always suck  up everything he says with so much blind hope???

tumblr_mher86l9Eb1qzzeb7o1_400

Then in December, 2015 I once again predicted that Pershing Sq would have another bad year that would even surpass what we saw in 2015. Of course, you guessed it, Ackman’s foolhardy followers were once again calling me names making wise cracks, saying that investors were locked in and wouldn’t sell anyway, after all Ackman has this great investment record (yeah right, what were they smoking) and that the fund  would bounce back after one bad year. Even Ackman tried to reassure investors via conference calls and memos that 2016 would be a banner yeat. A turnaround. He was feeling good about his Herbalife short POS and Valeant which he just bought in to. He also felt his other investments would do well. Those that were down would bounce back.

But what happened? 2016 has been an even worse year for Pershing Sq than 2015 was and 2015 was there worse year ever. Herbalife continued to run  up, totally opposite of what Ackman predicted while his new log POS with Valeant turned out to be an even bigger disaster dropping from $270 to as low as $19 (ouch!!!!!)

Ackman is usually wrong and always in denial

No doubt the beating Ackman is taking on his HLF short POS and VRX long POS along with other investment losses and the large liquidation of shares by investors is taking it’s toll on Ackman. Those of us who have watched Ackman for many years say that his recent behavior is “off the wall”, “insane” “concerning” and “peculiar” even for Ackman. Billy-boy does seem quite frustrated and perturbed and acting very strangely. I mean, who does a victory lap when they are being stomped like Ackman did yesterday and has been doing since Friday.

We know that Ackman was embarrassed by the pounding he took on his JCP investment losing over $500 million and didn’t want to suffer that kind of embarrassment ever again. But now he has two big losers. His  HLF short POS and his VRX long POS. More to the point, the recent decision by the FTC regarding Herbalife ($HLF) proves that Ackman is totally wrong. He hates to face it. But he was wrong and he has lost. Just like he has lost so many times in the past.

1545213_10151827049742391_1796395480_n

Ackman   said way back in 2012 that Herbalife stock would go to zero. Guess what? At it’s current price of $65, it is a long way from zero and Ackman predicted this Herbalife  downfall when HLF was trading @ $42. Ackman has taken a huge loss on this something in the neighborhoold of $800 million and growing as HLF stock continues to climb.

But this is not Ackman’s only loss. He has had many others.

1533793_10153166707707391_4578563870518519967_n

His paid shills and Ackman don’t like to be reminded about these, but hey, there they are.  Instead all we have been hearing for the last few years is that, “Ackman is a smart guy. I’m going to follow him.” OR “Ackman and his Harvard degree cannot be wrong.”

Guess again.

Speaking of losses, on VRX Ackman’s losses have been projected to be around $3 billion. Even for a billionaire, that is a huge loss. No wonder Ackman is acting so wacky. Even wackier than normal for him.

Also easy to see why so many Pershing Sq investors are pulling money out. There are so many other places they could have put there money and so many other places available now much better than with Ackman’s Pershing (or is that perishing) Fund.

10346193_10153166718247391_7761757579983677100_n

And let’s not forget Fannie Mae, another huge Ackman blunder. Of course all the time Ackman cheerleaded this play too. But once again, what happened??

Despite all of the hype and talk, Ackman is nothing more than a crybaby in a schoolyard. He talks a great story when on CNBC and on conference calls, but his results show something quite different.

11045501_1070978589588113_3576129574769135273_n

Ackman’s HLF short POS is dragging him straight to hell. He overpromised on this and caused a lot of shorts to lose big $$$ following his lead and based on his “research” And he has caused a lot of Pershing Sq. investors to lose big $$$ in real money not to mention opportunity cost had they been in a different better investment. As long as Pershing Sq investors stay with Ackman, he will drag them right down with him.

12279113_1070978669588105_5080892329987942338_n

I have made many predictions about Ackman and they have all come true. If you are still holding on to your Pershing Sq funds in hopes of a miraculous rebound, a dead cat bounce, hahaha, then go to Pershing Sq and ask Ackman to sell you the Washington Bridge or the Statue of Liberty. He will probably convince you that he can. Naivete is cute with children, not adults.
