I have a friend who is a broker and he makes me money, so I can't knock it. But I believe I get special treatment and IPOS not every one can get in on. So I can see your disbelief. Prior to that, I had no broker worth keeping. Bottom line-- these guys are salesmen not analysts. A lot of these IPOS are just "hot deals" the broker knows very little, except that its hot. My friend doesnt have time to look at it, so I have to accept what I get and make my own decision from there. Thats how I got chx.
