I keep wondering, again, why so many people who supposidly don't own DCLK keep posting? Why would you care about us POOR UNINFORMED soles so much, that you spend hours and hours on this bosrd typing "warnings" to us? You must either have an enormous amount of free time to serve us this deeply, or you must care so very much about all of us, people you don't know, have never met, have never even spoken to. For the life of my, why? Were I to sell DCLK (which I have no plans to do), I certainly would find better things to do with my time than remain on this board . I would like all this really truely sewwthearts, who are so kind and good to devote their time and energy to a charity, rather than to us poor unimformed DCLK share holders. Thank You. My opinions only
A friend told me this morning that there was an article in Washington Post (Sunday) whcich talked about DCLK and advertising on the Web, etc. I did not read the article myself but was told that the author was very bullish on DCLK. Anyone in Washington DC area has still yesterday's post, please verify.
Buy only companies you understand and believe in--those whose businesses make sense. A good example is DoubleClick Inc. (DCLK), which measures World Wide Web site visits and places advertising. Its revenue rose from $31 million in 1997 to $80 million in 1998. Profits remain elusive, but the stock is up 644 percent in the past year.
Don't worry too much about price. You can't set a proper valuation for an Internet stock, so you shouldn't sweat it. Still, be alert for buying opportunities, such as last week's sell-off.
