I don't believe in this stock at all.. While I would red thumb this...I am trying to compare this against the S&P 500 versus how GAME does against the S&P500.

Motley Fool article told investors that SEM and GAME were not better buys versus VITC. I happen to disagree at least with GAME. VITC boasted a 36% 6 month sales increase? GAME had a 43% increase.

P.S. Did I forget to mention I like GAME? Just making sure! :-)

Let's see...already down 4.49 pts on VITC. I have this going for 5 years for a good reason.. I want to see how much RED I rack up on outperforming a stock I don't believe in. :-) I need to get over 67 points in the red to have a brand new worst performing caps pick in my profile. :-)

This selling of VITC better not be based on "Varchild doesn't like it." Cause that's just wrong. I simply don't like it in favor of GAME.

But geeze? the IPO was priced at a range of 11 - 13. This stock is already almost a full point below the lower end of the range.
Say what you want about the awful looking profit margin number, VITC increased sales by 36% in the first 6 months.

So.. GET OVER yourselves Wall Street..... What in God's Country is VITC somehow such a bad investment you have to spank it down an additional 5+% after it already dropped for 2+ straight days?

If you have confidence this stock is now finally on its way back up....and I don't know this company's business to have any confidence.... It's finally trading back up today after relentless selling. Perhaps the short termers post IPO are finally out of the stock and those long VITC can enjoy a ride back to the 52-week high of $12.25? Only time will tell :-)

People who know about vitacost eventually find out about iherb. Then they stop coming back to vitacost.

GAME is underperforming the S&P.
