This is a predatory and unethical business and it makes money. End ASAP.

Five years later, I still expect this to be a winning pick eventually. This is a predatory and unethical business and it will catch up with them.

Strong non-US growth story. Nice fundamental valuation while operations are run better than of some peers. 12.

As soon as Obama's regulatory passes ( sooner if we could quit on the asinine health-care ), this stock is toast.

This one goes in the bad actor basket, they are overvalued, ok, but it's more than that, they are a positively evil company with what should by rights be an unsustainable business model, which will sooner or later be shut down by federal authorities, because it is just not legal to take advantage of poor people by trapping them in triple-digit interest rate loans.

I believe in the power of citron, they actually think this company is a zero. I plan on waiting and finding out!

Their loans never get paid off. They just continually refince the borrower in a ponzi type scheme. It makes the books look good, but the borrowers will eventually have to default.

Alright, of course I'm going with Citron on this one... but only because they're right. Failing to file lawsuits with the SEC is not only a big no-no, but it's also indicative of corrupt management. So, on a long enough time scale this company will crumble into nothingness anyway...

The real catch is predicting WHEN. And for that, may I direct everyone's attention to:

http://www.govtrack.us/congress/billtext.xpd?bill=h111-627

While WRLD isn't a credit card company, they DO extend credit... which puts the company on a potential chopping block. The current administration has gone after mortgage companies, they've gone after credit card companies, and I'm fairly certain that they'll go after anyone else that extends credit. If this legislation is applied to WRLD, they'll be headed for zero over night. Again, as Citron said, WRLD never talks about things like this.

Secondly, if the administration doesn't smother WRLD in the cold, dark and silent night while it's sleeping, they'll kill it through inflation. All of the big banks and lenders are getting bailout money, while WRLD is getting the shaft. By the end of the year, WRLD is going to be collecting a devalued currency which could potentially cut into profits or force them to raise their already exorbitant interest rates.

I'm thinking that memorial day is going to be a day to watch this stock to see what it does. Maybe I'm just paranoid, maybe I'm not.

Anyways, that's my two cents.
