You are smart and observant...the volume
indicates that LPHL will fall.Weak PR can not keep any
issue up, even though it can work the first couple of
times, it's the volume = interest formula that weeds out
the good from the bad.
If the press releases
didn't create more volume, even though the price may
increase, it's not a bullish indicator because volume
indicates interest in the market, not 40 cent gains on a
$11.00 stock with only a tiny 100,000 shares exchanging
I was waiting for the stock to appreciate but when
I see volume drying up, I know what that means,
stay away or short it if you are into that kind of
I have noticed how certain a poster
keeps telling everyone next week, two weeks, one month.
He always try to make it sound like it's getting
bigger and bigger as the voulme gets smaller and
smaller. What does this indicate? Probably that the stock
is not going to stay at this level, it's destined to
sink.I see these type posters all over SI and they are a
dime a dozen copycats, all using the same lies as
Where does the information come about some date here,
Feb. 14th? Think about it, if they actually have some
PR on the 14th, wouldn't that make this news subject
to investigation for leaking it out? Do any of you
think that the executives of LPHL would be stupid
enough to leak out information to just anyone like that?
They could be delisted for such
Earnings will just about kill this stock and there is no
way to sugar coat them. Lord help the longs here if
they release earnings on any day the market corrects,
and we all know it's about ready to burst.
Holding on to a beaten stock like this is a death wish,
plain and simple. At the current level, it has a lot of
potential downswing to it, no reason it could not sink down
to 2 or 3 level.
I'm just posting how the
indicators suggest this stock is a very risky hold. Of
course after reading messages here over the last 2 weeks
I will no doubt be called names by the emotional
investors, but I am certain that I am not wrong, this stock
will go down and fast.
We shall see soon
enough. I have nothing to lose at this point, I don't own
this stock and I wouldn't touch it, not until they get
past earnings. Maybe then I might consider it, but to
buy it knowing that earnings will be terrible is not
savvy investing. Not when you should know you can buy
maybe twice as much for the same amount of money
Cheers to you all and good luck, you will need it if you
ignore the indicators.
No you don't see Expedia and Travelocity web
sites in multiple languages, do you ever wonder why?
because they only target the U.S. market. Leisureplanet
has set out to be the number one online travel
service outside the U.S., starting with Europe.
I beg to differ. This company is not Amazon.com
and people do care about its earnings and as a matter
of fact, how much the company loses money too. Do
you know that AMZN's revenue of last 4th quarter of
'99 alone is equal to its earnings for the whole 1998
year? Do you see that kind of growth in LPHL? Investors
are not going to give LPHL the kind of treatment they
give to a giant like AMZN.
As you can see, the
stock just barely popped up after the recent news
because the investors see no indication that the company
will make money from those deals.
web site in multiple languages is just hype. LPHL is
claiming that it's selling tickets to countries as remote
as Hungary, Poland, South Africa. Just how are they
going to deliver the tickets if they make the sales?
E-ticket is not available in those countries. To create a
web site in other foreign languages, you just need to
hire a few translators. That's the easy part. Whether
or not you can sell anything is the big
You ain't see Expedia or Travelocity trying to build
their web site in multiple languages, and they can do
it easily if they want to but they don't, because it
doesn't make any sense.
If LPHL sells me a plane
ticket for $610 while Expedia sells for just $330 then I
say that they need to improve their price first
before worrying about selling overseas.
Yes you will be called names. You are an
arrogant, lying SHORT. I stay away from harsh language
generally, but your outrageous lies compell me to post. The
level of this stock around 11 reflects normal
retracement after a run up from 6 to 16. This stock hasn't
seen 2-3 dollar range in over a year, and with major
infusions of investment capital in the nine to 14.50 range
won't see those levels again. I'm not going to predict
the near term fluctuations, but please tell me this
brilliant investor that you are: Why did CNN, WDR and
Arnault pump 60 million into this baby when they could
have held their money a couple of months and bought in
for pennies on the dollar?
Posing as a long,
Mr. "I was waiting for this stock to appreciate" is
laughable. I hope you short this stock to the
Real investors know that they don't know the future,
Mr. "it's destined to sink." You should sell your
crystal ball to an investment company.
I did take
your SEC concerns seriously however. Insider trading
and spreading misinformation is improper, so I am
planning to forward your message to the SEC.
THE ABOVE IS MY HUMBLE OPINION. And as always, I
apologize to all those who use these boards for the
exchange of real information, but sometimes spammers just
get to me.
"I did take your SEC concerns seriously however.

Thanks for doing that. I agree,
insider trading and spreading misinformation is improper.
Why are you sending my message though? I didn't post
the date of Feb 14th? Where's the email address for
sending in posts to the SEC. I will forward the two
spammers who posted that date today.
spammers get to me too, all the same old PR for
information instead of discussion of the real business
alias poster here!!!
I really like how you just made up that new screen
name on Feb 2nd, and were not the least bit embarrased
to kiss your own ass, even though it was obvious you
were responsing to yourself. Big balls! I like
Hey, I want to take the opportunity to tell ALL OF MY
TWELVE ALIASES that "you guys are all smart &
observant", too! LOLPIMP!!! COLPOMD!!!
If you care to check my handle, it said it was
created on Oct 5th, 1999 - actually it was created a long
time ago but I went in to check on its status and the
date changed - but I didn't post here until late
January after a friend of mine told me about the
My philosophy is I don't marry a stock, so even as I
own a small amount of shares of this stock, I will
discuss it freely on message boards to gather ideas from
other people. My feelings right now is this company
doesn't seem to be doing too well as a travel company. My
first experience with its web site is I can't even
register, the second experience is they quoted me an
airfare that is almost twice as expensive than Expedia
and Expedia is a better known company. So now you ask
me, why do I want to shop at Leisure Planet, an
obscure company that quoted me a much higher airfare than
its well known competitor?
Thank you. The perfect example of just what I was
posting about, a crybaby who can't stand someone who
doesn't agree with his stock picks, so I have to be
someone else in your mind.
I see that you don't
get too upset that the poster who said "Feb 14th"
vestige, or egitsev created his handle on Jan 31st.That's
OK, right? I usually use a different handle wherever
I post, especailly in war zone like this seems to
be and you know why? Because childish types like
yourself would follow me around like a little puppy dog.
Do your own DD, you can decide to agree or disagree
about LPHL with me, but I will not have to read your
childish insults wherever else I invest.
Why is it
so hard for you to believe that more than a few
people know this stock is going to fall? I am not
bromitt, and whatever other names you may think I am. Is
every long here the same person too?
I have done
research before posting and like I have said for the 3rd
time, I am not short or long in this stock. I wouldn't
buy it now because I think it's going down before it
can go up again. Worry about earnings that might
destroy your portfolio that probably contains only this
stock in it instead of who is who.
Grow up and
don't expect any more replies from me about who I am
anymore. That's just moronic, discuss the issues for a
change, are you able to do that?
Please elaborate because my TA does not agree
with you. Perhaps you are not taking into
consideration the amount of shares available for trading..
check it out and than come back and complain about
As for earnings, again- as you blasted the posters
for hyping this imaginery feb 14 release, you have
done the same thing by saying that somehow you are

Longs and shorts will hype their positions till the day
we die.. period.. we all want to make money.. in the
end, either you or I will walk away a loser here but
only time will tell..
The market is very
selective right now.. If your in the right issue you can
make 50-100% gains a week.. but dont bother doing
research trying to find quality because it will benefit
LPHL in my opinion is a steal at
current levels.. If we fall back, I move elsewhere.. I
prefer to sell short rather than go long, but even if I
felt this was heading lower I certainly could find
better shorts in this market that will yeild 10-20 point
returns, rather than LPHL dropping back to 4-5, which I
highly doubt any indicators would show as a possible

Why is it that everyone here gets so defensive
with just about anyone who doesn't rave about this
stock? Are you all paid to be here or
Where is the indicator about volume? Come on, even the
longest long has got to see how volume is shrinking. Do
you do any research at all? Just go and take a look
at the profile for LPHL on Yahoo, the link is right
on this page as you read my message.

Volume on Thursday? 42,600.
The numbers don't lie,
As for my speculation for earnings,
I do expect them to be very poor, how can they not
be? What could possibly make earnings positive? That
is not the same thing as posting that on Feb. 14th,
something big is going to happen, is it?When volume
continues to shrink, that is not a good sign. Period. You
put whatever spin you want on it, but this as a
The market is very selective now. Yes, I agree with
that summation, that's why when earnings come out and
the chances are they will be bad according to what
research I have done, the stock will probably go way down
from current levels.
We all have different
indicators, and so we shall see who's correct. Time will tell
us that, not the majority of longs who decide the
rules for this place.
As I stated before, I am
on the sidelines, anything wrong with that? I also
said that I may consider buying after the stock falls,
but I wouldn't touch it now. Plain and simple truth,
like it or not, I think the stock is going down a lot
lower and I think earnings will be very bad. I don't
have to be shorting to see it, and if I would short, I
certainly wouldn't be posting each sale here, and neither
will all you longs who keep defending the stock like
insulted 12 year olds who have to cry because someone
disagrees with them.
