    • You can't imagine how many times over the course of the 19 months I have been in this stock that I have heard variations of this same post. Quite honestly, it's getting tiring..... Not you, personally, Jorge, but hearing this at every level and seeing nothing but a downward trend throughout. This stock fascinates me. It's one of the most frustrating stocks I have ever owned.... They seem to be doing all the right things, anticipating a slow down in traditional brokerage, they've moved into commercial real estate brokerage at what seems to be a timely basis. That area is exceeding expectations and securities brokerage is turning out to be cyclical, yet with a great future. The market seems to be Dangerfielding this stock. I think a part of the problem seems to be the underlying complexity of the corporate structure. That seems to be impossible for practically anyone, certainly me, to understand and the market continues to punish them for that....
      Obviously I'm an investor, not a trader and I see no reason to give up on this one, but man, it's been a frustratingly long slide... Thank goodness for the dividend, but that hasn't overcome the slide, only cushioned it....I've worked my cost down, but it's time to average down yet again, if I so choose.... How many times can I do that? I know the old cliche about averaging down vs, averaging up. Maybe I should be taking heed, I don't know.........

      • I just got hit with a massive fed call yesterday so I will unwind some securities today to hold on to BGCP and that is what i c facing BGCP drop...again i am just speculating not an insider or a fortune teller but BGCP seems to be doing great so far but the stock is being punished with this downward pressure with the market...I guess nobody thought it be this bad with the Obama re-election...but i do see some strong buy signals first BGCP has asserted that they want Moody to drop their performance evaluation because they are not being fair with their added broke yesterday after market...second they need to buy back a large amount before years end like what JPM announced yesterday and third announce a special dividend to support a 5 dollar stock value...its that or go private which could happen if the tax laws become unfavorable for public companies...hope Obama team give in to the companies demand sothey can bring the foreign cash to America so they can expand production if not i will forsee a dow below 7000...stay intouch u seem like a good guy and hope u bounce back i might not be lucky today if the stock drops again...

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • One of the most sensible posts I've ever read on any of the Yahoo boards. I agree. I have slowly built my position on pullbacks. Will likely add again tomorrow. But it is an unloved stock, and I haven't had much luck with them. Individual investors can't fight the traders. But I'm long term, so hope springs eternal.

        Sentiment: Buy

    • I f'ing hope you're right. I bought 1000 shares this morning at 4.45 and am freaking out right about now (now at 4.28).
