    For ALL SHORTS: looks like selling

    into strength. INKT, DCLK, YHOO AMZN, VRSN, PCLN,
    GNET all up only 1/4 to 3 points with NSDQ +42. If the
    NSDQ finishes strong (say >=+60) but the i-nets
    stay <=+4, then we still have a considerable amount
    of downside to go (perhaps another 10% for the
    NSDQ).

    AMZN and YHOO longs are showing the most
    bravado. AMZN remains the best short.

      • [post-earings correction. Unfortunately, these
        things are painful, as i-net bluechips, with few
        exceptions, have corrected 30-70% after earnings. I-nets are
        ultra volatile and a really tough way to make money as
        a long-term investor. Once an internet stock's
        price matures as the market identifies its worth, going
        much higher becomes that much more
        difficult.

        Longs on this board will try to convince otherwise, bad
        mouth me, blah, blah, blah. So I invite you to do your
        research. http.quicken.com is a nicely presented site that
        should give you a better feel for how this stock trades:
        big pre-eanrings run-up, big post-earnings sell-off.


        Finally, you should know that Sept and Oct are the worst
        two months to go long. So if you are thinking of
        buying stock in INKT or other i-nets during these next
        two months, be EXTRA careful and be sure to leave
        money on the side. Good luck!

      • press the little button labled, "chart." It doesn't look that down.

    • is the arogance I am talking about.

      1) It
      is off topic.
      2) You assume people care what you
      say.
      3) You assume you are right - what if someone short
      AMazon with you "hype" and lost their house?
      4) You
      assume you have the market all figured out.

      I am
      not a hyper...nor a genious investor. Just a guy who
      invests in companies long-term.

      You really,
      really do think you have the market figured out. If you
      do, let me ask you this, are you a
      millioniare?

      • If you can't see the difference between an
        opinion based on some analysis of the facts (there was
        considerable selling into strength--look at INKT, AMZN, YHOO,
        PCLN) and hype, then you truly should stay away from
        i-net stocks.

        No gloating, just a short
        opinion. But I guess your own losses prevent you from
        differentiating between the two.

        One comment I hope you
        take to heart. When I am short, it is important to me
        as a trader to understand how people are justifying
        their opposing position. In essence, they are my
        competition. One learns more from an orthogonal opinion than
        from a duplicate opinion, wouldn't you say? When I am
        long, I enjoy reading the posts of shorts (maybe they
        see/know something I don't).

        Have I figured out the
        market? No. A dangerous assumption. I know a hell of a
        lot more now than I did at this time last year, but
        far less than others. No, I'm not a millionaire,
        though I am taking some healthy strides in that
        direction.

        As a "guy who invests in companies long-term," you
        should pay as much attention to those who invest
        sho0rt-term or plan to sell as to other long-term
        longs.

        At this stage, my posts are for myself and for
        fence-straddlers who are wondering which way the wind may blow. I
        write to convince myself, but if anything I write
        prompts a healthy discussion, then so be it.

        Like
        many longs, you seem to want uniformity of postings.
        Such good-feeling boards are great in uptrending bull
        markets, but not in choppy markets or in bear
        markets.

        Finally, the fact that you and other longs respond with
        such detailed acrimony tells me some do read my posts.
        Being that you are a VP of a major corporation, I am
        flattered.

    • Steve Harmon will be on in a while . It was just talk about. Oh he's the internet guru for anyone who doesn't know.
