How do you prefer to be pitched on stories?

I don't accept pitches.

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.

Greenberg: And the Worst CEO of 2013 Is...? — This year's winner (or loser) is longtime Abercrombie & Fitch CEO Michael Jeffries. Just as last year's pick was obvious -- Andrew Mason of Groupon , who has since left the job -- so is Jeffries, who brilliantly built the company into what it is today, only to (and this is my opinion) fall into the classic trap of being blinded by his own success.

Herb Greenberg Says Investors Should Heed the Warnings on Rio Tinto — NEW YORK ( Real Money) -- For years, "this market," as it is always referred to, has been about instant returns. Investors, for reasons we can debate, have become conditioned to that. The downside for anybody who has a public view of more than a few minutes, or weeks, is public mockery or flat-out attempts discrediting the critics.

Herb Greenberg on the Sad Reality About Online Shopping — NEW YORK ( Real Money) -- My family, like many, has been shopping online for years, much of it though Amazon , but also trying and buying from plenty of others. We have a baseline on something that has simply become a way of life.

Greenberg: How Hertz Fooled So Many Hedge Fund Managers — SAN DIEGO ( RealMoney) -- We should've all known back in 2009 that something wasn't quite right at Hertz . Between then and now the company, which has since been forced to restate years of financial results, fooled some of the smartest hedge fund managers -- who viewed it as one of the must-have investments.

Duracell Not an Impulse Purchase, It's All About Cash Flow — SAN DIEGO ( RealMoney) -- While investors square off over whether Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway ( , ) is getting Duracell for too good of a steal, the bigger question is, why would someone as smart as Buffett buy a business perceived to be as bad as batteries?

Herb Greenberg on the Stock Market: Herbalife's Reset Begins — SAN DIEGO ( RealMoney) -- For two years, I've been reporting and writing on Herbalife . I've been consistent with one message: If nothing else, the company and the multilevel marketing (MLM) industry need to go through a "reset" of their business models, not unlike the kind that rocked for-profit schools.

Herb Greenberg on the Stock Market: Here's Why Twitter Should Sell Itself — NEW YORK ( Real Money) -- After watching Twitter's stock tumble 10% during after-hours trading Monday night following the company's quarterly earnings report -- and listening to its earnings call -- it seems obvious: Twitter execs should just sell the thing.

Herb Greenberg on the Stock Market: Is Coke the New IBM? — SAN DIEGO ( RealMoney) -- As it turns out, Coca-Cola's "Vision 2020," which calls for the company to "double revenues over the decade" is a lot like IBM's now-tattered and abandoned 2015 "roadmap," which was a five-year plan to meet $20 in earnings per share by 2015.
