DoubleClick, Inc. (DCLK) Message Board

    DCLK really can't go any lower than

    8.50-9.00 because they have over 900 million in
    cash and marketable securities on hand. We must be
    near the bottom give or take a couple of dollars and
    nowhere to go but up when things turn around! Really not
    a bad situation if you bought recently.

    • where do you get OVER 900 million? It said in the
      earnings report 873 million, and with slightly over 123
      million shares outstanding, comes out to about 7 bucks a
      share in cash.

      I don't know about you, but I
      prefer a company to grow or reinvest with that cash,
      rather than remain stagnant and earn 6% in the bank.
      That's a reason why companies such as DoubleClick, Yahoo
      and CNET don't deserve a rich multiple. They've run
      out of ideas of how to grow rapidly. Can you say,
      MATURE INDUSTRY?

      • Mature industry?

        9% of folks media time is
        spent online, 2% of media budgets are currently spend
        online. Historically, this has reached equilibrium in
        EVERY media channel. Hardly mature.

        Who do you
        think is going to run the iTV space as far as
        advertising goes? Do you think NBC, CBS, and ABC, not to
        mention the cable networks have the expertise to do it
        without a partnership with the gorilla in interactive
        marketing?

        Folks, saying that this is a mature industry is an
        absurdly uninformed statement.
