    • Sorry I missed it. You usually have good stuff.

    • I forgot you have SUNW also. I love when analysts
      do that -- downgrade when a stock is down, upgrade
      when it's at a high.
      It's all part of the market
      but it doesn't make it less annoying.

      I posted
      a good article from WSJ on Sun yesterday (on the
      SUN board, of course). I also posted one from the WSJ
      about AOL yesterday...how AOL always comes back like
      Lazarus. It's also on the RB board.

      Thanks for the
      good, calm posts.

    • Should be redefined as simple market contraction. It's about as funny as B of A downgrading SUNW after it loses 25%.

    • Volatility of Web Stocks Parallels Biotech Frenzy

      a clip--------->

      Internet investors
      should be wary of two things in particular
      that
      undermined the biotech boom. First is failure of companies

      like Centocor to deliver as promised
      (Amazon.com's
      announcement five weeks ago that losses
      would be wider than
      expected might prove to be a
      parallel).

      Second is the rising supply of new
      issues that eventually
      overwhelmed demand. Even
      though biotech stocks peaked in
      the early weeks of
      1992, there were still 91 biotech initial public

      offerings that year, up from 72 in 1991, according to
      Thomson
      Financial Securities Data.

      But
      neither failure deflated biotech overnight. "Even after
      an
      event like Centocor's very public failure,
      investors still refused
      to run away and continued to
      look for opportunities to be
      involved in the
      sector," says Mr. Mullins.

      Indeed, the group
      rallied 25% between June and November.
      But then they
      slumped anew, and by November 1994 the
      average
      biotech stock had lost two-thirds of its peak value. At

      its bottom, Centocor hit 5 1/2, and Amgen 31.


      Both those stocks recovered, and biotech since
      then has
      performed well. Amgen closed Friday at
      63 1/4, or 253
      unadjusted for splits.


      The Internet boom is similar to biotech in the
      stunning price
      increases and ease with which
      unprofitable companies raise
      money. But there are reasons
      for and against a happier
      outcome for Internet
      stocks. One negative is that valuations of
      Internet
      companies appear far more inflated. No biotech stock

      back then equaled even a tenth of America Online's
      market
      value of $122 billion today.

      On the
      other hand, Internet companies may have better

      long-term prospects. Roger McNamee, general partner at

      Integral Capital Partners, a Menlo Park, Calif.,
      investment firm,
      thinks Internet stocks are a bubble
      waiting to burst. Yet he
      also thinks the companies
      have more going for them than
      biotech did. "The
      biotech industry maybe produced four of five

      legitimate pharmaceutical companies, none of which has
      really
      transformed the industry. The Internet
      industry is already way
      ahead of that. It's already
      transformed how personal
      computers are sold, the
      brokerage industry, in a very
      fundamental way."


      Also, Internet companies aren't losing as much
      money as
      biotechnology companies did. "These
      [biotech] companies were
      burning incredible amounts of
      cash," says Jay Kim, an analyst
      at Hambrecht &
      Quist. "When the capital markets really dried
      up, a
      lot of these companies came into a financial-survival

      problem."

      The whole
      article is very interesting and balanced,IMO. Good luck
      to all.

      • Its the typical OTC:BB stock. The price will
        eventually end up lower than 10 cents. I thought it would
        see 19 but when it hit 14 I got out. IT is too late
        to buy aret. IT is done for now. End of story. NO
        more aret.
