NAB Behind Stock Price Action

I heard from a large hedge fund manager that he get's a "heads up" call right before a negative report on the SIRI+XM merger comes out. Investors might notice a pattern, for example, the stock prices were down yesterday, and low and behold, the Carmel Group study was mentioned today.

The NAB, it turns out, has access to big money funds that are invested in companies that have reason to be against a merger, Clear Channel, Cox, Entercom, CBS. The NAB has a multi-pronged approach, manipulate consumer opinion, and simultaneously drive the stock price down. Well, that solves the mystery.

A POINT OF CLARITY - I Typically do not edit the contributions of the author of a piece, but this piece has generated a lot of comment, and there are a few points to add.

1. Hedge Fund managers often get information about such reports prior to their release. In many cases, hedge funds sometimes commission reports themselves.

2. An organization such as the NAB is a powerful organization with ties to many people.

3. The NAB is trying to influence consumer opinion.....as is Sirius and XM.

4. Reports such as the C3SR and Carmel Reports can and do erode confidence in investors. By releasing reports such as this on a regular basis, it serves a desired goal.

5. Big investors in a sector, who hear information from many sources, can make price swings happen in equities. Large blocks of shares being bought or sold carries an impact.

6. While this type of activity can be very frustrating, it happens all of the time. Companies compete not just on retail shelves, but for investment dollars as well.

  • You point these things out to your readers, but who is pointing it out to the people deciding on the merger? It seems SIRI and XMSR people better start defending themselves or they will be destroyed by our wonderful "democratic process".

  • I am not kidding you, have you seen one story about SIRI or XMSR exposing the bias of the reports to Congress? I have not.
