Icahn Stock Tweetpump Halflife Down To Just Five Minutes

Tyler Durden's picture





 

Following yesterday's ugly AAPL results (broken down here) we had only one question this morning:

 

Moments ago we got the answer: just after 11:04 am Eastern.

 

No mention of AAPL being a "no-brainer" buy here, the way it was at $560. What's worse for the billionaire twitter is that the half life impact of his tweets is now just under 5 minutes.

Carl iCon tweets his pump & dump trash on his Samsung tablet while laughing @ the peeps believing in the Herbalife business model -that depends on guilt-tripping relatives and friends to buy snake oil from you.

Herbalife is similar to Girl Scout Cookies, except its products aren't for a charity, taste like shit, don't do shit, and are unfit for their intended purpose.

>>Herbalife

these kinds of scams are the cornerstone of the modern eCONomy afterall.   who really needs most of the shit produced these days?   This world needs to fundamentally rethink some basic concepts about what matters in life and how humans should get along.

I'm a registered libertarian for god's sake, and even I think this shit Icahn pulls, pretty much daily now, should be illegal.

One thing is for sure - Carl iConBecauseTheyLetMe Icahn has, at best, a few years left on earth.

And there's nothing pump & dump about that.

Icahn is now in distress

His plan to pump Apple's a mess

Talking his book

Should make him a crook

Should this be illegal?...why yes!

Why YES, dreams can come true.

Some guy on CNBS that writes the "Wellington" letter, just said his PT is in the $300's for AAPL.

I hope he's right. Just once while I'm on this earth, I'd like to see ICon take it from the rear.

With salt, sand & lemon juice.

That's because AAPL broke the trendline by 30$ an next stop is 480 @ the 200.

 

Carl, you're going to need another 500 after the close..

Apple is dying.  Anyone with a brain can see it.  Android and Kindle are eating their base away at a time the consumer is dying. 

 

The whole Icrap line needs to be shelved.  The question is, do they have a visionary that will come up with shit  that morons will camp out to have?

The problem is... Wait for it....

Steve Jobs is dead.

Tim Cook is a logistics guy.  Back in 1998, when Apple was not making money, he was the kind of guy they needed, in tandem w/ Jobs.

On his own, at this stage of the company's 'lifecycle', he is quite worthless.

After Apple TV takes off (any day now), Tim Cook claims Apple will unveil a tablet in the form of a fruit roll up.

On a serious note, Apple is absolutely a seller of nothing more than commodities now, many of which the competition like Samsung, HTC, etc., makes a better product.

True dat.   Maybe he has his mind on his money and his money on his mind.  Hope he has fun hugging his digital billions.  If this whole Fed-induced quandry has made me realize anything, it's that the best things in life really are the simple things.  Happiness and contentedness are a state of mind, not the value of your trading account.

What kind of serious investor pays attention to the tweets of Icahn, when every serious investor knows the tweets of Cramer are far more substantial.

My guess is that Ichan got hosed.  I'm sure he paid for information and someone delivered him false data, then when he went big-in expecting easy insider-info quick profit....well, we see how that worked out this past week.

True...he could have meant he bought 500mil worth of put options.

If he is long, all he is doing is averaging down and will bail at the first whiff of being in the black.
