    • Dar'n! And I was wishing that it would be below
      $37 so I could get back in after converting
      everything into cash. It was due to a possible transfer to
      Suretrade, but since they were sitting on their hands, I
      went to Waterhouse. They had bought Kennedy Cabot,
      where I held my shares, and when I finally talked to
      them I was online in about 10 minutes. Thanks to
      everyone who offered thir advise when I asked, but
      sometimes it comes down to convenience. In the mean time I
      got rid of 1000 shares of Orbital at 36.75. Now you
      know why I don't make predictions on this board. I
      have noticed so many predictions, on this and other
      boards, and when the stock goes in the other direction,
      there is a blessed silence, at least for a while.

      • a few posts back I "predicted" a resistance
        ceiling of 38-40, so I closed out my apr 30 calls at 38
        1/2, indicating I would sit on the sidelines until the
        stock pulled back. This gives rise to two
        questions--

        1. Does that make me a "guru"?
        2. To whom do I
        send an invoice for a mostly "correct"
        prediction?

        On the other hand, it could just be dumb luck.

      • I notice in that Muriel Siebert ad, where
        they're
        bragging about being #3 on some list, that Jack
        White
        is #2, and Waterhouse is #1. So perhaps
        you're in
        good hands now, greyz.

        I agree with KDOV_B1RD
        that it isn't neccessary
        to sell stock to move it.

      • Sorry about that Greyz1, sounds as if you were
        getting bad advice all around. Don't want to be critical,
        but hope your new broker does better!!

        I've
        been that route several times, and I just effected a
        transfer of stock from broker to broker, thereby not
        losing ownership. There was however a small transfer
        fee. Perhaps your situation was different - or worse
        case your old broker saw the chance for a last
        comission!!

        At any rate posting for the good of
        others who might be considering the same move.

      • I read a lot of boards. This is one of the
        better. Lots of positive feedback from lots of
        knowledgeable posters. I've learned a lot. I'm long and will
        buy more. Great Company, Great Future. Happy
        Thanksgiving to all, and good investing!

    • ....Keep chanting those phrases and I'll reap the reward!!!! ORB will see $45 by year end!

      • In the spring, 1999, 170 buses working out of
        126street in
        Manhattan will participate in this pilot
        program..
        essentially, avlc creates a smart bus. When a GPS receiver and
        various sensors feed data into a small computer installed
        on board the bus.the vehicle will be able to
        determine its location
        decide whether it is early or
        late and on or off route, using its
        radio system, a
        smart bus can communicate its position to a command
        center.
