    Staples (ex) employees

    I don't mind hearing your perspectives, but
    please explain how you think your experiences reflect on
    the company and will affect its stock price. Your
    personal feelings, positive or negative, don't help us
    with analysis unless you give us context.

    Every
    large company has employees who think it's heaven, hell
    or somewhere in between. Think Wall Street!!

    • but will look for a rentry point in the 43 range. still not complaining, i made 13 % for a two week investment.

    • Off the last buyin the stock price would drop to
      16.47/share so if you had 100 shares you would now have 150
      shares. aThe stock will split down to around $30.00 if it
      stays in this range. So your profit will remain the
      same as today, but you end up with 50 more shares.

    • I was going to post an aside in my previous message about you getting out too soon. Glad you didn't. Hope you enjoyed the ride as much as I did.

    • I hope I am understanding your question
      correctly, so here goes.

      I am not an employee of
      Staples so I am only familiar with the employee stock
      purchase plan from the annual proxy statement. That said,
      my company also has one that seems very similar if
      not identical.

      When the stock split in
      January, the price from the begining if the then current
      period will be adjusted. If for instance the price at
      the begining of the period was 36, it would be
      adjusted to 24.

      I hope this is answering your
      question, if not try again, or you can email me at
      paulingall@aol.com

    • I have an question about employee stock
      purchases.

      I think it's great that the stock is
      soaring beyond everyone's beliefs. However, my question
      is what about folks like us who are in for the long
      haul. How does the rising stock effect us.
      I mean,
      it seems like it doesn't matter when your a new
      stockholder. Doesn't the rise of the stock is more profitable
      AFTER the split.

      I apologize in advance for my
      ignorance.

    • I have a question regarding employee stock
      purchases. It's great that the stock is soaring beyond all
      beliefs but what effect does it have on folks like
      myself? It is obvious when the split actually occurs and
      the prices rise. In the meantime, does it make any
      difference what the price is now since we are in for the
      long term, won't it matter more after the
      split?

      I apologize in advance for my ignorance.

    • AM I LUCKY OR WHAT??!!! My stop limit was 40 5/8, not 41 5/8. I am still in!! May the New Year bring you all more days like today!! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

    • I got stopped out @ 41 5/8 a little bit ago.
      Bought on 6/26/98 @ 30 7/8 - so I did okay for a 6-month
      investment. Sold 3 points above my target price! Time to find
      another winner! I may let the market play out for a day
      or two. I may be back after the split. Good luck to
      all.

    • Understood, and day trading is probably not
      accurate for what i am doing, more like week or month
      trading. I am long in a couple of tech stocks, and
      recently, decided to play around with on-line trading.


      I understand the risk, but like the protection. Put
      a stop limit on spls at 41.5, which would give me a
      14% return after fees, for a two week investment. And
      if spls continues to rise, I'll stay with it, and
      will probably lag 2-3 points behind with the stop
      limit.

      my biggest holding is bmcs, which while
      it trends up, acts like a heart fibulator, and can
      have 4-8 point swings in back to back days, but in
      this sector, seems that a 2-3 point lag is safe baring
      a market correction or bad news on the stock.
