KCG Holdings, Inc. Message Board

    Weak hands please sell!

    After reading some of the lame posts which is so typical of the yahoo crowd, I thought it might be useful to note that over 140 institutional investors own over 72 million of the 118 million shares float. Most picked up larger positions while the scared money punk investors were wringing their hands.

    As I have said many times, the small investor will always do exactly the wrong thing at exactly the wrong time.

    No doubt this won't tune in the foil hats that post out here but for the few real investors that have some understanding of the unique business and important business of Knight, the stock is dirt cheap especially with the institutional company it keeps.

    Excluding the cost of the merger, KCG revenues were up substantially and the company hasn't even settled in yet. I expected GETCO to be down because its operational units were disrupted by the merger and moving. I wouldn't have expected anything else. KCG is perfectly positioned to be the driving force behind HFT and this will only enlarge in the future as emerging global capitalism expands.

    • It's too bad Yahoo doesn't block big mouth's Cash, who comes on a message board to insult people so they hesitate to post their comments.
      Have you always been a bully Cash??
      They say that bullies are usually cowards and losers who pick on smaller or weaker people to compensate for their insecurities.
      On a message board, people like you can hide behind a keyboard.
      There'e at least one of you A.H0LES on every board to ruin things for others.
      Feel free to express you opinion about the stock and company, but you can shove your arrogant insults up your wazoo!

      • Only on the street. I am an options trader so I don't generally have time to pat the egos of the novice trader. I hope you learn, I hope you get better at it but like Carl Icahn says, "If you want a friend get a dog." And he's right I have two dogs and they are good friends. I suggest you focus on what is really happening at KCG and try to reason why it is worthy of an investment or not. The scared money only points to losses; buy cheap but you have to know what that is. The window in knight won't be as long as you think. The new management appears to be a good bit better than Joyce and as traders should be, they are not feeding the PR but simply attending to business. Earnings this quarter will be good with upward guidance. Lot of political garbage in the way but that just stretches the window but won't stop the inevitable. Management has a huge stake backed up by their fortunes. That's real accountability. KCG is a sleeping giant. So get off the fear channel; it makes you look like a weakling. And if there is anything Carl Icahn can't stand it is those little crybaby boys out on the playground.
