I bought COLM on day 1 and saw it rise and fall.
I'm usually quite confident in my decisions, but this
stock falling below $11 gives me the creeps. What's the
deal? Almost a month of steady declining numbers, and
no floor in sight.
I agree with your thoughts on IPO's. It sounds
like you have a disciplined approach to executing your
buys. If I read the earlier posts correctly, one poster
thinks it will have to drop to 2 or 3 before it's a buy.
That strikes me as unrealistic. It's up 1 as I write
this. I'd be interested in knowing what will cause you
to buy COLM, if you'd care to share your strategy.
For my part I bought 200@23 in June, another firstname.lastname@example.org
in June, 100@12 and 500@10 1/16 in Sept. for a 14.7
average. Clearly this has been a difficult enviroment. My
overall strategy is to stay fully invested with 10% cash
for opportunities. Anyway, I'd like to learn
something on this one from others.
I'm sorry I spoke up at all. I dont buy IPO's, I
don't own (and never have ) COLM, but have been waiting
to buy. If you want to wait for 2-3 bucks, be my
guest. I'd rather let the market tell me when to buy.
COLM is an exellent company; that was my only real
purpose in posting at all, in the hopes that those that
are long relax...I should have known better.
Just look at the chart since IPO this stock is
Stop kidding yourself and make COLM
management rich, they got the
your money and you guys
got the endless pain. Never hold stock drop 50% from
IPO within 6 months.
as colm continues to drop, this message board has
fallen victim to the same idiotic responses rampant
within this forum. before you all hang the underwriters
of this issue, or tar and feather the management,
try using the computer in front of you for more than
just complaining. if any of you bother to research the
entire apparel group rather than merely your poor COLM,
you will discover that since COLM went public the
entire sector has tanked. this is what is called bad
timing,not bad management,not bad company,not bad investment
bankers. so wake up out there,stop blaming anyone and
everyone else for bad stock picking, and more importantly,
start planning your next move. As for me, I'm starting
to get mighty bullish on the sector, at exactly the
moment your're thinking of throwing in the towel. don't
make the same mistake as
before...timing,timing,timing... remember, the market is not on your side, it's
you against them... good luck to all.
I too bought this stock at IPO price (24), and I
think COLM investor relation dept and their CFO/CEO are
useless that why the stock keep going down (not yet
bottom). I think I'll exit and lick my wound and put my
left over money in somewhere else that may grow (QCOM
, HD, WMT, BRCM)
Winter time is coming hope
sale is up but the chemistry is gone
scare of this COLM , good luck to those who long.
Rumor is Goldman is dumped 100,000 shares today.
Why would the lead underwriter do that? Love to
Does anyone know how sales are tracking in Q3? This is
the only important quarter of the year for these guys
and if they make just as much as last year (34 mil,
$1+ share), they should beat 98 estimates handily.
Looks like the street thinks this quarter is coming in
Does anyone know how well there sales
