rbg5r, I generally agree with what you say------about a lot lot of the posts on yahoo boards by idiot, immature---usually testosterone laden to their detriment---time wasters who post "arm waving," rah-rah nonsense devoid of content--or mature wit even----who seem to think they can affect the market movement-------rather than those who INFORM with information or solid analysis, etc. --------I do find, however, that some good souls and good minds show up on these boards as well----and I get good info and leads/ links etc to good info and thinking from them----------tho' the signal to noise ratio can be high, especially on stocks that have a lot of hot activity, trading etc., when the adolescent-minded pishers seem to show up en masse.
----I just can't figure out why they don't have jobs----is it mommy money that supports them, etc. etc. LOL
if their mommy gave them enough money they might make more playing around with a couple stocks then they would having a job.Look how much Rimm has gone up in a short time.Ive heard a lot of good opinions on the boards but there are a lot of stupid childish posts also.I doubt most of people on here think their trades really affect market..but you never know who's on here I have my opinions and I do like to hear other peoples I just ignore the dumb ones
