    Please give a rookie investor some feedback.

    • I'm seeing a after hours bid price of $22 and ask $26, wonder if news is out.

    • Buying in the mid 20's forces you to pay a slight premium for the takeover rummors, but it might be worth it. If the rummors
      turn out to be true, HLT will probably buy CIR for no less than 27 or 28/share (or maybe even higher). If HLT doesn't make an
      offer the down side risk isn't all that great. CIR will probably drift back to the low 20's and stay there until another suiter
      comes along, earnings start to improve or the gaming industry as a whole comes back into favor (any of which could happen yet this
      year). Good Luck!

      • I own about 30 different stocks, on any given day, if you go to the boards for those stocks, there is take over talk going
        on about most of these stocks. there are what? 8,000 stocks on the 3 exchanges, the odds of one of these stocks actually being
        bought out is very slim, so i think we all should keep things in prospective.I own some cir, i would like to see a deal, but the
        people on this board, for the last 2 days, have been getting a little to wild with there statemnts, when in fact they dont no any
        more than anyone else. Many people think they can move a stock up or down on these boards, which is not the case, but they get a
        thrill by thinking that if the stock goes up after they have pumped it on the board, there were the reason,and then they sell the
        stock.I use the boards as a contraian indicator, and when the people on a board are very optimistic, I some times sell, and when
        they are down as hell on the stock i buy, so these boards do not have an impact on the stocks, so why done some off these people
        , just talk facts, and quite trying to do something they cant .
