Have been away. How prophetic that Smoking Man
said that we'd have to wait until BKS reached 25.
However, thinking that it will go still lower because of
competition and rumor that Borders? might buy BAMM. I sold my
BKS and investing in broadband communications. Making
some profits. Anxious to make up BKS losses.
-The retailers are a bit of a funny bunch.
-Given all the hoopla about rising costs to the
consumer, you would imagine that retailers would have
flown, but this hasn't been the case. -Sure there have
been some good moves made here and there, but overall
they haven't performed as well as we thought they
-Our two favorites CC and BBY have been
incredible gainers, and still look great.
-NAUT got a
nice article in Barrons and could move, but after
that..only a few look ready to move substantially higher.
-WMT appears to be good for more, TOM is moving
towards their split, and TIF has been doing great.
-The balance of the rest all appear "tired".
-Maybe this week will wake some of them up.
long shot BRAD made a great move for us going from
under 9 to over 15 and now even they appear ready for a

Never owned BAMM. I did own BGP until June 16.
Thankfully I sold that dog at 16 3/8 (now 14 13/16) and used
that money to buy NITE at 46 1/4 (now 59 3/8). I have
had it with bookstocks, they have caused me nothing
but aggravation and disappointment. Sorry, I don't
really have any thoughts on BAMM/WMT except that BAMM
shareholders must be happy. As usual, this doesn't bode well
for BKS, it just makes a minor competitor into a more
potent competitor teamed up with WMT. This will probably
drive BKS shareprice down a couple points. I've reduced
my BKS holdings from 2000 to 500 and am looking
forward to the day when my BKS holdings become ZERO.
Dumped another 500 shares of this putrid piece of
garbage (BKS) at the wonderful price of 26 and bought 300
shares of GILLETTE (G) at 41 just about 20 minutes
before the close today. G closed at 41 1/4 and BKS at
26, so I feel better already. Still have my final 500
BKS to do something with and I'm looking for one more
good stock to trade in for, and then I will be
completely out of BKS forever. I have no confidence that BKS
will ever recover. BNBN is an absolute dog and going
nowhere. July is going to be great and BKS will not
participate in the rally. Later this year, there will be a
lot of people selling BKS to lock in their capital
tax losses to reduce capital gains on stocks that
will have made money this year and that will keep BKS
shareprice depressed during pre-Xmas period. Six weeks since
the IPO floperoo and this stock just gets shittier
and shittier. Sometimes, just sometimes, all the
waiting in the world doesn't solve the problem and just
isn't worthwhile when there are some other real good
buys out there with potential to move in a strong
