    I've owned a few hundred shares for 11 months now. I'm trying to hold off selling in order to get the better cap gains
    treatment but the valuation here really bothers me. At 110 time 98 and 61 times 99 ESTIMATED earnings it is obvious the company is not
    being vauled in any traditional sense. Can anyone give me a valuation measure that makes sense for AOL. I'd love to hold on longer
    but the air is awful thin up here! I need some justification for holding. I tried to build a cashflow model for the company but
    it required a 20 yr growth rate greater than MSFT to get it to justify the price here. Thanks for any help guys. The last thing
    I want to do is give the governmwent any more money than I have too!

    • Will someone explain to me how can a stock go to valuation of $100 or even more with no or a few cents earning. How far this is going to go. I don't know how many are riding this wave on the recommendation of the so called the economics Gods the so called analysts. Pray for all those who are riding till the earning comes out.

      • Are yaar,just consider it a gift from the good god Ganesh. Some of us have been riding this Garuda from $x, and now just have fun laughing at the low-castes like Numbnuts and Diarrhea and Stockeunuch while they soil their shorts. For more proper explanation read earlier message from the Paikhana guru.

      • I have the same quetion as you had. I think perhaps those people may look for the future growth. but with so high price, I really think they pay too much for negative earning!

      • it can go to $100 with no earnings when you have a bunch of idiots that subscribe to the anal-list buy reccomendations. I was taught long ago,
        never, ever follow the general public direction, for the general public is wrong most of the time.
        just like all the long stockholders of aol. Im still waiting to hear from you folks. It funny how they all disappear when the stock drops. Im sure they will be back when aol opens up 1/8 friday, to bad its going to sink like a rock later in the day. The earnings downfall is coming soon. Stilltime to bail.
