I have a relatively large holding in HCBK and have no intention of selling at this time. Definitely will wait so as to take advantage of long term capital gains. After that...who knows, but will continually monitor the situation. In any event will probably hold several thousand in anticipation of 2nd stage and/or buy-out.
BTW is there anyway (absent having a friend in management) of knowing just how many, if any, shares have been actually bought for the ESOP or MRP plans to date?
Can't spell, never have, grammar sucks also. Can decypher code on the fly and write with the best. Funny thing about that...Employers don't care if you can spell. But, alas a facts a fact... You have the ability to spell so well that you can correct me. I am humbled. You are indeed smarter than I so you must make more money than I do, live in a bigger house, drive a fancy car and have a hot wife. I wish I was more like you.
An anthropologist will uncover this msg. board and after years of exausting work will come to the conclusion that there was no inteligent life on earth. Years later a new study of this board will be conducted and it will be decide that these types of things will happen when you invite the help to buy in on an ipo.
You just can't let the "pinky in the air" crowd and the "BUSCH BEER CAN TO THE HEAD" gang into the same afairs... It's like frigin Oil and water!
