1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Don't worry, my facebook friend's chipotle-targeting animal liberation campaign is still going strong.

    3rd solid trading day in a row.

    Opened a position back up in PBR yesterday.

    Earnings about even. Stock slightly down.

    Poor Ackman. Icahn must be laughing his way to his newfound stash of cash from his HLF position.

    I like how Ackman said that HLF was buying their own stock to keep the price up today. It will be interesting to see who gives in first.

    Funny, I think Ackman is fundamentally right but it's very hard to explain the flaw in a way to send investors running. Eventually, enough people won't profit from the model on the ground and it will translate to the profitably. HLF is a MLM scheme, but it's not destined to fail, just look at Amway. Not a buyer...

    I agree. It's 100% a MLM / pyramid scheme and it's shady as shit. But its enterprise value is most definitely not $0.

    Meaningless statement. Even if its $1 its a viable short.

    I concede -- that's a fair and valid point.

    Yeah, I'm loving that. The entire sector moved on the report.

    GILD has been weak lately, I trimmed 1/2 my position.

    FB reports after the bell, fingers crossed.

    Yeah I haven't sold GILD since my cost basis is quite low and I think they will meet expectations

    Fingers crossed for FB too

    Also need to find somewhere to put GWPH money been buying too many shoes. Any biotechs you watching?

    I almost pulled the trigger on a biotech ETF, but couldn't figure out which one to do. I have not been watching anything new since that point. You?

    Initial after hours drop was a bit confusing but back up





    :slayer::slayer:

    Nothing that I really feel convinced about, ETF wouldn't be a bad idea. GILD numbers pretty damn solid too
