    OZRK stuff

    Just a few notes on OZRK that aren't typically
    known, (just in case someone is looking to purchase
    OZRK) as of 6/13/00:

    OZRK has:

    - Very low
    volume: 6,000 shares, even though 3.78 million shares
    outstanding (shareholders are holding)

    - Wide spreads
    on Bid and Ask are common, another indication
    shareholders are holding (1 point spreads ore more are common
    - tip: buy low on big spreads)

    - Great
    quarterly earnings (13 consequtive quarters of record
    earnings)

    - Very low P/E ratio of 9.4

    - Only 1000
    "short" shares, which is a very low ratio of "shorts"
    (0.1%)

      • Dr. Hoof:

        Thank you for the very nice name
        calling. Now that was a true effort to gain friends and
        influence enemies.

        Regarding "we DID try to tell
        you", I went back through your previous postings, and
        guess what? You did post messages about the low volume
        of OZRK and about Arkansas Banks (in general) being
        in some trouble. None of your postings were
        specifically about OZRK.

        Regarding low stock volumes,
        that is not an indication that a company is having
        problems. For one example (I can provide more), look at
        HYSQ. When this stock had a low volume one year ago, it
        was selling for less than $5 per share, and now it is
        selling for $35. Low volume does not mean anything,
        except that it is a "small cap" stock. Many "small cap"
        stocks can be where most of the big gains are. Year to
        date, the S&P 600 small cap index is up 9.2% for the
        year, while the S&P 500 index is 2.5% for the year.
        That is why I like investing in the smaller companies
        WHICH HAVE LOWER STOCK VOLUMES.

        Ok, so I
        invested in a stock and I lost 30% of the value. Does that
        make me a fool? Sorry you feel that way, but name me
        one person (including the professionals) that
        invested in the stock market that never had any losses...
        Oh thats right, I can name one... Hillary Clinton
        with the cattle futures. Other than her, I cannot name
        a single one. (Isn't it ironic that she is better
        than the professionals).

        So, in the end, if you
        want to call Warren Buffett or Carl Icahn fools
        because they picked some losing stocks, I'll be more than
        happy to join their class and be called a fool right
        along with them.

        For the record, even with the
        OZRK losses, I am up over 10% for the year. My big
        pick for the year was NGH, which I bought at 10 and
        sold at 28, plus dividends. I believe that covered my
        OZRK losses.

        By the way, if you are so
        knowledgable about OZRK, answer this for me, and I will
        seriously listen....

        To whom else has OZRK given
        loans to that will be defaulted on, how much are those
        loans, and when will they be counted against quarterly
        earnings?

      • The real reason for this board being dead isn't
        the stock, it is the size of the company.


        OZRK has a volume less than 6,000 shares traded per
        day. Every other stock that has this low of volume has
        a dead board as well.

        If an active message
        board is what you desire, buy Microsoft (MSFT). They
        have an average volume of 38 million shares traded per
        day, and their message board averages a new message
        every 2 minutes. By the way, if you bought 100 shares
        of MSFT, you would be down $4000 from their 52 week
        high. Whereas, with OZRK you would only be down $600.
        Oh, and MSFT has a P/E ratio of 45:1, while OZRK's
        P/E is 9:1.

        But it doesn't have to be
        Microsoft, pick just about any other NASDAQ tech stock with
        high volume. I just used it because I knew it had a
        very high volume.

        Bottom line, messages mean
        nothing. OZRK has very good, solid numbers. Just read
        their financials.
