    • I admit my knowledge of ocean going ships may have an impact on my ability to judge stocks.


      lineal instead of liner

      sorry I forgot I was talking to a pompous ass that has no imagination and can not understand anything that is not in black and white for him.

    • Shock me by not being another id of unseen's

      I only need one Id unlike some on this post. since alitbit was so wrong on his short he had to go and get another ID now he goes by jesterbunk. Must have got the jester part from his lovein of the motley fool.


      I need no expert to tell me when I'm in a recession but guess what due to my great returns in the market last year and so far this year I am not among those in a recession.

    • consider yourself shocked.

    • I find it amusing that of two people in a conversation you choose to jump in to call out just me, and then you do so by attacking me too.

      "Shock the daylights out of me by not responding to my message."

      Shock me by not being another id of unseen's.

    • Jesterbunk, thank you so much for your contrarian view, which assists all of us with our own due diligence as we make buy and sell decisions regarding GME. But once you have made your point, why do you have to keep beating the same dead horse? We get your point, and thank you for making it. Just because you have been thoroughly discredited, you don't have to keep insisting on getting the last word in. Shock the daylights out of me by not responding to my message.

    • With the definition of a recession being a lagging indicator, do you feel good until some expert tells you you've really been feeling bad for several months, and then do you still feel bad until the expert tells you no, you've really been feeling good for several months? Or is your confidence tied to more tangible things like home prices, gas prices, food prices? Inquiring minds want to know...

      "If it is per game than renting is cheaper"

      Thank you for admitting you lied earlier.

      "you failure to grasp more than a liner view of things is your biggest weakness in your argument and your judgement of stocks it would appear"

      I admit my knowledge of ocean going ships may have an impact on my ability to judge stocks.

    • yeah that 18 month recession was really bad...keep trying to spin the fact that you have no idea what your talking about.
      As far as hitting peaks and bottoms. they are pretty easy to see if you know what to look for.
      I understand you are short and must talk you book but your starting to go off in lala land. Reminds me of someone else....hmmm you wouldn't have by chance changed your screen name anytime recently....

      As far as renting and buying used it depends what you are vauling. If it is per game than renting is cheaper, if it is time, having the option to replay the game whenever you want etc then buying used is cheaper. but from your posts I wouldn't expect you to understand more than and/or. you failure to grasp more than a liner view of things is your biggest weakness in your argument and your judgement of stocks it would appear. So keep those blinders on, short more believe what you want. reality has a way of reminding people that the blinders are on.

    • "18 months you say? Hmmm 18 months you say. so the recession in your book started in OCT/NOV of 2006."

      I'm unclear how the official timing of a recession based on whatever definition the "experts" apply, has anything at all to do with the facts of when the housing market peaked, when the jobs numbers started to decline, and when oil started its rally to more than double in price. I'm pretty sure those are the factors that affect consumer confidence with respect to whether they feel comfortable putting down a refundable pre-order $5 on a video game, more than when the "experts" declare when a recession began or ended.

      I feel like I should be using shorter words to explain things to you.

      "I got more than .30 on the dollar today more like .50"

      Earlier you said it's cheaper to buy than rent, now you've just proved you were talking out of your ass. Thanks for saving me the time to do it for you.

      "If you sold on his advice you missed out on the run as well as the sell off."

      And you missed out on the drop to $41 too, don't forget about that.

      "So the market didn't fall avg of 15% since christmas."

      It seems you expect analysts and everyone to time peaks and valleys perfectly. Somehow, I doubt you manage.

    • searching for bad calls?

      I don't need to search, his calls have been wrong all thru the year. Form the monthly NPD sales figures, always low, to the PS3 call, to missing the Wii completely, to underestimating the VG upcycle. On sept 24 the day before Halo3 launched GME closed at $56.17. It went all the way to $63.00 before selling off WITH THE REST OF THE MARKET. that's a ~12%gain that was missed out on. GME has since retraced to the level it was before the Halo 3 release. There were plenty of times within the last 4 months to add to your position to avg your cost basis, to trade around a core postion etc if you understood that the VG cycle was in a bull market and would contnue to expand. GME has since that period also report great numbers and its P/E has contracted thus enabling GME to move up from the base it is forming. If you sold on his advice you missed out on the run as well as the sell off. you also made a taxable event which on Apr 15 you had to pay for. but go ahead listen to him. the day I listen to any analyst instead of doing my own homework is the day I get out of the market because I would no longer be able to get the returns I get.

      when the all/most the analysts downgrade astock it is 9 out of 10 a sign of the bottom, when they all have strong buys on the stock I'm looking to get out of it. The analyst are not bad to take risks, they are paid to run with the herd. But hey if it works for you and you just can't come up with your own thoughts.... then by all means use what you have too.

    • Maybe you've been in a cryo-chamber or something and just woke up at Xmas, but all that stuff has been going on for the last 18 months or longer. It hasn't suddenly started happening at Xmas.

      18 months you say? Hmmm 18 months you say. so the recession in your book started in OCT/NOV of 2006. that's good to know. Hmm what was the GDP in the 4th qrt of 2007? 3.5% you say. hell of a recession that was. barely made it thru that massive downturn.

      And yes I know all about gamefly. I've been a member for years. I even buy the preplayed games there when they have a sale. Does that make my math wrong? Nope go buy GTA4 for $20.00 at gamefly today like I bought it at GME. You can try to rent it. Most likely it won't be in stock. For the newer games renting is not the way to go unless you want to wait for the game to arrive. If you go to BBI to rent it be prepared for some big fees. .30 on the dollar you say? that's funny. I got more than .30 on the dollar today more like .50 of course they were used games that I bought at a discount and traded in for a +20% credit but you know who's keeping track here.

      So the market didn't fall avg of 15% since christmas. You must of missed that big downdraft and bottom made before the BSC rally lifted us off from the bottom but keep missing the forest for the trees. Those blinders must be comforting.
