After going to bed with assurance that a "market" order did not fill according to my account, I just checked the account and now it shows my 12:18 PM Market order filled at 3:20 PM yesterday at $39.02.
It could have been worst. Now I have my doubts that the stock is going to take off next week.
Sold my iPo shares... Dropped a market sell order at $42.10... 3 min after the stock opened
ETRADE finally executed the market order 21 min after I placed it for 38.86 per share. Didn't get confirmation of the execution for over 3 hours. I asked the rep at ETRADE if he thought 21min to fill a market order on a stock trading with this volume his answer was "yes" it a bunch of bs and they know it! What a fiasco!
I was very close to buying because of all the hype but I held back to what happened and boy am I glad. If I were in your shoes, I'd try to sell in the premarket just in case massive dumping occurs. Obviously the risk in premarket is you don't know the real direction of the stock (usually). Of course there might be a lot of premarket action. If you're lucky MS will still be buying for 38 but I kind of doubt it.
What is all the worry about? I got 1000 shares at 38 right off the bat from ING Sharebuilder for less than 10 bucks. Granted I only made 386 bucks but LOOK OUT MONDAY.....by Monday afternoon I should be UP 7-10 thousand dollars.
really? Did your oracle tell you this?
I see the stock maybe bouncing around a little but sooner rather than later I think this is a lead balloon with the only potential upside being wild A$$ bubble inducing speculation. Day 1 does not appear that will happen in this case.
The founders made their money but now being a public company it's an entirely different operation, comprised of a web site that sells advertising.
they think that I'm bound to arbitration but they're going to find out that fraud creates void or voidable contract. also, their lawyers contacted me to show some muscle and i told them to f off since the weren't barred in my state or federal jurisdiction. i look forward to the day when other self-directed traders start suing their provider. it has become a racket.
