    Useful information on the MSFT board?

     

    I first posted here in Nov 1999 and it was an "OMG! MSFT is a marketing scam" 'relevant' post. I had spent a couple of humndred hours researching the ways MSFT legally hid negative information.

    The same idiots who say I am wrong about Obama's failure today were here then under different aliases telling me I was FOS.

    MSFT was like $90 (pre last split then) and went up to $120 from there. The same "can't learn a lesson" idiots who were fooled then were telling me "see you were wrong, the price action confirms it.

    My opinion today is MSFT is about fairly priced for what is known today, better than many issues BUT the same management team who scammed people with legal deception in 1999 are in control and thus the trust factor is low

    • There is no such thing as information. Or, rather, knowing can get you in trouble. Its best to see if there is a consensus and then try to do the opposite. Better still it is good to act if even you believe what you are doing is dumb.

      Now with MSFT the steady selling is good. Stock is a dog and people are sick of missing out while everything else goes up. I had a lot of stocks that did this to me (THC NCS SBCF NXST) but that is not a problem.

      Right now the market is scary. I am short now a little IJH and HD. Shorting is stupid because you need a stop. But I have to do something - buying index puts always costs too much.

        There's a guy whose approach is just the opposite of that. You may have heard of him. His name is Warren Buffett.
