You have the biggest chip on your shoulder that I have seen on this or any other board. You portray yourself as the saver of souls, investor and employee alike, with your inside knowledge of Staples. I can't stand frauds like you, with an ax to grind, claiming to stand up for the downtrodden. So, for the sake of clarity, tell the board if you have a short position in the stock and what relationship with Staples you had or have that makes you as sour as you are. No one, repeat, no one, bashes a stock as continuously and relentlessly as you do without some sort of motive. 'Fess up or shut up.
Sorry Calamari - it isn't illegal to bash a company on these message boards. This stock has gone from 35 to 13.5 in about 14 months. Sorry, but that makes me unhappy. So you can continue your cheerleading if you like, but this stock and this industry are in the toilet, so I shall continue to bitch. Just one miserable wretch's opinion, but I am entitled to it if you don't mind, and even if you do.
I disagree. Nowayodp on ODP's board is more consistently annoying and contradictory than africanamerican2. They might be the same person.
Also, someone on ODP's board (I'm long in both companies) said that when you mention the basher's name, they somehow make a little money. Don't know if that's true, but you might want to write a new message instead of replying to the basher's message.
Keep your fingers off the sell button; remember that investment time horizons are what you want them to be, not what brokerages, with a huge interest in promoting either buys or sells, tell you the horizons are.
