What is the point of your doubt that some one on this board might have bought 10000 shares of a stock? it so happens at at one point i was holding over 7000 shares of cse. yes, there are some of us who can and do buy $100,000 and more of a stock. yes, there are some posters here who do have several millions in stocks. so don't find fault with such postings just because you don't have that kind of money to invest.
