    Don't know about the rest of you folks

    But I'll take a couple of pennies every day. In a couple of months, that's some serious
    money. At least 20% on your investment. Good times ahead my friends.

    • couple pennies up or down because we were down a couple pennies today. Hope you weren't referring to todays close. lol

    • Dear Mr. Wb,

      I am more than thrilled to hear from another who is interested in a position to clean my office. I thought that the amount of vomit on my Persian rug might be too much for Mr. Cozy to clean alone.

      Now please understand that I can only pay minimum wage. But after reading your post on how well you think your investment in ALU might do, I am sure in the near-future a minimum wage position will be very attractive to you.

      Like I offered Mr. Cozy, I extend the same offer to you of my private counseling, free of charge. Also understand that I offer group rates that might be attractive to you and others who share your delusions. Please share this offer with them.

      • Obviously you got your doctorate from a diploma mill. Real universities require their doctoral candidates be able to read. If you could, you would see I quite clearly said I was not predicting how my investment would do. I was simply pointing out the gains a few pennies a day on each share of a stock that cost $4 would return. Now, would you like to dispute what I did say, as opposed to what I did not?

    • Dear Mr. Cozy,
      I am thrilled to learn that you believe a couple of pennies each day is serious money. I am in need of someone to clean my office each day. I have patients who become upset when I inform them of their psychotic problems, often leading to them to vomit on my Persian rug. So disgusting. I believe you would be the perfect person to clean up after them.

      If you are interested, please send me your resume and a short description of all of your mental problems. Please also understand that I will, as part of your compensation, provide you with my private counseling, free of charge. After reading all of you posts, I believe this offer could be very beneficial to you.

      Looking forward to your response.

      • Well, "doctor," you may know about psychiatry but you don't know squat about finances. You probably don't realize this, but most people own more than one share. So, if by the plural "pennies," we take the smallest amount - 2 cents - and multiply it by the roughly 250 trading days in a year, that comes to $5 per share. So, if you have 100,000 shares, that is $500,000 in profits, or if it is a smaller 10,000 shares, that is $50,000. Or, to put it another way, if you purchased for $4, that is a 125% profit in one year on your investment, and every year thereafter, you will continue to make another 125% profit on your original investment. Of course, I don't expect anything quite this good for ALU, but anyone who thinks this is an unsatisfactory return needs, like you, to see a real psychiatrist.
