    • Thank you for the information! Will give it a try Monday.

    • I know what you mean - I have a nose bleed and if this thing tanks it won't be from the altitude.

    • A couple of days ago I was trying to decide
      between buying Dell or AOL. You want to know why I picked
      AOL? Because of their immunity. Dell's stock could go
      down due to a multitude of factors: lowered sales,
      unable to keep up with orders, bad news from Intel, bad
      news from HP, bad news from Compaq, bad news from
      Microsoft. Dell, sinks and swims with the sector.

      On
      the other hand, AOL's stock cannot be negatively
      affected by anything. You can't really classify it as an
      internet stock, so when all the search engines tank (they
      will soon) AOL will still stand. AOL will only have
      more customers over time, they will never report a
      year in which their customer base shrank. They cater
      to the greatest number or people. They don't have
      any competition remaining, Compuserve, the Microsoft
      network and the Apple networks among many, have failed to
      compete with AOL.

      As far is being junk, I agree.
      You couldn't pay me to use AOL. They don't provide
      anything I need that I can't get better elsewhere. For
      free. But there are millions and millions of people who
      love AOL. Today I received a forwarded email and 8 out
      of 10 addresses were @aol.com.

      This is a
      can't lose situation. Jus sit back and let the money
      flow in without over-analyzing.

      Have a nice
      weekend!

      :-)

    • do yourself a favor and do not look at yahoo p/e
      no. yahoo bases there p/e multiple on 97 earnings.
      you need to base the p/e on forward looking 98
      numbers which is .47 per share that puts the p/e at 177
      still very high but 99 earnings estimate is .87 eps
      thats almost 100%eps growth 98 to 99 not bad for a co.
      that has a shitty product that you get charged for
      monthly. the line are always bottlenecked and its not user
      friendly. but i love the stock and it is a wall street
      darling. the have dominant market share in a booming
      sector. should have a nice run into earnings on may 6.
      stocks always have forward looking numbers factored into
      share price thats why they get hit when bad news comes
      out.

    • couldnot of said it any better; long ( need to set a stop loss) on aol for now

    • Which is right? An earlier message said it was down in after hours to 79 5/8; yours says 82+??? Is somebody pulling our legs?
