    NegFeedBack's Investing Strategy

    <According to message #32596, negfeedback buys high and sells low.

    He seems to be upset that this type of investing doesn't work.>

    Actually, WAG is the first and only stock I ever "bought high and sold low" and that DID work! I'll be doing that again real soon.
    On the other hand, you sit in this stock and watch it go up and down day by day and HOPE that some sucker will come along and pay you more for it than you paid. Hows that goin for ya these past five years? Talk about something that doesn't work. I'm surprised you aren't upset when you see the bigwigs cashin in at your expense. Then again what was that W.C. fields said? Oh yeah, there's one born every minute.

        Actually we're both wrong as to who said it. This is what I found.

        NUMBER: 5619
        QUOTATION: There�s a sucker born every minute.
        ATTRIBUTION: Phineas Barnum (1810�1891), U.S. showman. Attributed.

        Barnum doubted ever having uttered these words, though he conceded he may have said, �The people like to be humbugged.� See the appendix to A.H. Saxon�s biography, P.T. Barnum: The Legend and the Man (1989), where it is claimed that the phrase �There�s a sucker born every minute, but none of them ever die� originated with a notorious con-man known as �Paper Collar Joe,� (real name, Joseph Bessimer) and was later falsely ascribed to Barnum by show-biz rival Adam Forepaugh in a newspaper interview. Barnum never took pains to deny it, and even thanked Forepaugh for the free publicity he had given him.

    • Lets not forget that WAG has been sub $30 several times over the past 2 years. I'm doing all right on WAG, thank you
