Pacific Square Research, CNBC, still sort of a journalist, hype-buster, creator/proprietor of the ORIGINAL Hostile React-o-Meter.

How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

I don't accept pitches.

Proof the stock market has gone nuts — That post that Hain Foods would buy Boulder Brands within a month was merely one Mergerize member's speculation. It's based on nothing and it's the ultimate in maddening crowds becoming delusional, as we speak. Created several months ago by the same people who launched Estimize, which crowdsources earnings estimates, the site simply says: "Sign up to contribute your M&A predictions."

Fake Press Release in Sino-Forest Battle — To show how nasty the emotions around these battleground stocks can get: Today a press release allegedly from the SEC said that Sino-Forest critic Muddy Waters Research and its founder, Carson Block, had been charged with stock manipulation. The press release was posted on a website called, which posts press releases for free.

Greenberg: Questioning ITT’s Share Repurchases — For example: ITT Education's board in recent weeks okayed the purchase of five million shares. This makes zero sense to me because the company has told investors it really doesn't know how it'll be affected by new Education Department rules, a giant chunk of which are expected to be published any day now.

My Lunch With 2 Fraudsters: Food for Thought for Investors — My lunch with two crooks: "Hi Sammy, it's great to see you." Barry Minkow gave Sam E. Antar a hug as we walked to our table at a fish restaurant overlooking the San Diego Bay.

Does Anyone Still Care About Value? "YOU CAN ONLY WORK WITH MIRRORS FOR SO LONG" — (FORTUNE Magazine) - I've been feeling increasingly irrelevant lately, and can you blame me? I attempt to write a regular column based on traditional fundamentals in a world in which traditional fundamentals no longer appear to apply.

Greenberg: Dangers Lurk in Chinese Reverse Mergers — My interest, all found in company documents and/or Internet searches, include: L&L was founded in 1995 as Royal Coronado, a shell looking for business. While not technically a reverse merger, it has similar attributes. It has morphed into a coal mining company in China.

Bull Market Rewriting Rules On P/e Multiples — Momentum The New Criterion NEW YORK - Who says this market is overvalued? With projections that the bull market will continue well into the future, why worry about price-earnings multiples--a stock`s price divided by its earnings per share--that are hovering near all-time highs? That`s bear talk.

The Hole in Dunkin' Donuts Unappetizing Stock -- and Even a 'Cronut' Can't Help — NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Everybody has an opinion on why Dunkin' Brands has become an unappetizing stock. On Twitter , my friend Jim Cramer says it's because"people have turned on doughnuts." Must Read: Cramer: What Stocks You Can Still Buy in This Rally Others say its menu is too narrow.

Twitter in breakdown mode? — Twitter stock is down 30 percent in the past 3 months alone, CNBC contributor Herb Greenberg and the Fast Money traders, discusses the issues with Twitter's platform.

Herb Greenberg: What's Next for Valeant After Its Botched Bid for Allergan — NEW YORK ( Real Money) -- One of my rules of roll-ups is that only so many companies can be rolled up. And when the rolling up stops, the resetting begins -- and all roll-ups eventually reset.
