If you caught the knife a few days ago its a good thing, if you owned it 5 days ago you are still in the red.

Its a short sale nightmare..

So HLF is presenting their counter argument against Bill Ackman tomorrow and its still parabolic. Will it go higher tomorrow?

Nice timing on the post.  Hit the high of the day at 10:11.  12 minutes later, down 4%.  At close, down 8% from your post. 

This is not investing...might as well play roulette in Vegas

Risk adjusted returns.  An important concept.

If I throw $100 on black and it hits, I'm golden too.

For a small amount of money in a portfolio, sure take a shot.  Anyone who has any significant money on this, with all the unknowns with the SEC, conflicting big-time money hedge fund views,

If you have read Jim Cramers book, Diary of a Street Addict, I believe is what it is called, then you know exactly what happened here. One guy makes a false claim and then shorts in on the way down..His partner in a different hedge fund then can ride it back up. I wish I had some dry powder to have gotten in on it when I heard about it.
