I've heard that before you sell a stock you
should weigh all the other options out there. If you
can't find a better one than you should not sell. I'm
sure there are better plays out there, just curious
what sector or stock you are focused on
hardly any volume and slipping. The only thing
that will stabilize this stock is good y2k news and
thats 12 weeks off. UNTIL THEN DOWNDOWNDOWN. "pushy".
Well her pushiness led me dump all my shares. Wait
until the institutuinons start dumpin. Want to make
money? Mary beth told me anything with the word health
in it is screwed
I just talked to MaryBeth. I did find her a bit
pushy which isn't cool. However it seemed like they
needed a little push to get thier stock moving. I urged
her to put out some press releases about all these
new accounts that they said they were generating in
the last earnings report. I mentioned how there is
very little news on Yahoo and if the company is not
going under than investors need to know that. She says
that they continue to get new accounts every day. She
also says that they only put out press releases about
things that they think have meaning. I guess her and I
have a different idea about how to manage a
$45 dollar price target from DLJ
Spoke with mary beth in investor relations today.
First off she is rude! Second this Co is going nowhere
for a very long time. Before they had told me
earnings are good. Now, they will not comment! When will
it turnaround? I was told 2 months after y2k fears
are over. NICE I AM OUT!
Well it would be nice to buy it out if they were
looking for earnings growth. However, right now this
sector seems to be in a funk. I still think if interest
rates hike up with inflation Drugs and utilities are
the next flow of cash. It is good to see all the
bearish (negative) posts. It is a good sign for those
wanting a steady return over a few months.
First call put out some kind of note that was
disseminated through the street . The note was not public!
Likely their group of analyst have discussed positive
As for merril lynch that analyst should be fired.
His reasons for putting a hold on the drug
distribution industy were nuts. Y2k fears and the rhetoric
about uncertainty in future health coverage based on
politics. If the US doesnt cover non-generic drugs come
2002 (the earliest it could take place) then they will
have to cover generics. Drug distribution co's dont
which is covered as long as something is. When my dad
was going through med school 60 yrs ago he was told
then he would be practicing in socialized health care.
Every year the same thing being told. Today the stillt
the same threats. In presidential elections
candidates are going to have to make stands on prescritpiton
drugs. if they attempt to decrease coverage in any way
they are done! can you imagien the public outcry if
they deny people over 65 medication. Also those 50-65
would be shaking in their boots. Together that is over
50% of the vote. Bottom line nothing will happen
because no one will want to deal with it.
