I just received a promo piece in today's mail from US West offering: unlimited $19.95 access, Netscape Communicator 4.0, two e-mail boxes, a software template to create your own homepage (up to 2 meg), on-line connections at 56k, live 24 hour 7 day a wk tech support, a step by step tutorial CD-ROM, one monthly bill for both tele and on-line service, and if ordered now, a FREE 56K MODEM!!!!! The leader on the promo piece said "Now, getting on the internet is as easy as using the phone".
Talk about timing luck!
No, I'm not into oil... just tech's, telecom, and medical... CSCO is on a roll, though... Opinion on oil? It's in a valley and still going down. If you're into oil LONG, could be a good time to start buying in just based on cycling... (jeez, I can't believe this).
check out MIND!
If you are comfortable that oil prices will stablilize and rise in future, then give this company a look.
Its been beaten down from $30+, is absorbing a late 1997 offering, and has been a past winner.
Its got a pretty good board too, with substantive commentary, not needless personal chatter.
You were so lucky at finding and burying this nut at the right time that I was just wondering if you had any picks in the oil services sector........sector getting hammered and looks like a good oppt. at this time?
Yeh, it's gotta be the inbreeding factor. Their sisters and brothers are also their cousins; their mothers and fathers are also their aunts and uncles; brothers marry sisters; sisters marry brothers. There also seems to be a fair amount of homo bungin' goin' on as well.
I'll participate in a rational discussion of U S WEST. I retired from USW middle-management. About 20% of my net worth is in UMG and USW stock & stock options.
To start the discussion, I'll throw this out... I believe both USW and UMG are going to be major players in the high speed data TRANSPORT industry. I'm not so sure either will ever be a big player in the CONTENT industry. Either way, it's still a long way off, not about to interfere with AOL's dominance in the near future, say for rest of 98.
I believe the day will come, however, when AOL holders will start to get nervous about emerging competition, and the stock will retreat. Today or soon? No. Next year? Maybe. 2000 >? For sure.
Since my last post, Toyboy (aka Cruiser, Otto, Klop, Youthinks et al) personality disintegration continues. Update in caps.
VIVID SIGNS OF RELIGIOUS MANIA (Holy Moses), JINGOISM (war imagery), UTTER COGNITIVE DISSONANCE AND TRANSFERENCE (Bombay reference to Paik).
#333: Clear signs of paranoia/persecution mania at "evidence" of insider trading.
#588: Enters fugue state (note "stunned, simply stunned"). Actions without coherent
motivation, perhaps amnesiac.
#768: Continuing fugue. Enters fictional world of non-existent option trading.
Subsequent total schizophrenic personality disintegration -- note rapid
adoption/abandonment of various aliases, genenerally with foreign designations (Otto in
Munich, klop na stene). Has entered
$914: Curious anomaly. Apparent lucid period before infantile regression (note grade
school level acrostic poem) and coprophilia (theme of above poem).
Sexual dysfunction noted (no babes in Ann Arbor), probably caused by cultural
By now probably in total fetal regression state.
Toyboy, get help. The longs on this board can probably get up a collection for
institutionalization and treatment. In the meantime, as test of normal functional ability,
please post formula for cis-glucose.
