    What's Your Investing Philosophy: A Three Question Survey

    I. Take this Survey. It's Only Three Questions.

    Since XIN is on the cusp between Nasdaq/NYSE listed stocks and OTC/Pinks companies, it's one of the few companies purchased by investors with a Conservative approach (as a high risk option in their lower risk, lower profits portfolio) AND investors with a more Aggressive approach (as a low risk option in their higher risk, higher profits portfolio).

    Which view do you agree with?

    1. Do Bulletin Board Posts Move Markets?

    The Conservative: "Bulletin boards moving markets? Never. Most shares trade tens of millions of dollars every day. A BB post would need to change literally millions of dollars in trades to move the share price. Granted, XIN's on the very lowest end of that scale, and therefore more susceptible to the idea, but even at $500k or whatever traded per day, there's just no way."

    The Aggressive: "Bulletin boards moving markets? Naturally. Most shares trade less than $50,000 worth every day. A BB post only needs to change a few thousand dollars in trades to move the share price. Granted, XIN's on the very highest end of that scale, and therefore less susceptible to the idea, but even at $500k or whatever traded per day, surely someone's figured out a way."

    2. Do Paid "Pumpers" and "Bashers" Exist?

    The Conservative: "Twaddle. Since #$%$ can't move markets anyway, why would anyone waste their money paying "pumpers" or "bashers"? It's also worth mentioning that the practice, if it did exist, constitutes felonious market manipulation, so anyone doing it could end up in prison."

    The Aggressive: "Naturally. Since #$%$ move markets, why wouldn't people use their money paying pumpers and bashers? It's not even worth mentioning that the practice is illegal. The markets are big and the SEC is small, so nobody's going to end up in prison."

    3. Minimal Acceptable Performance of the IR Department.

    Conservative: "I'm outraged. Only half of my emails to the IR department received replies. My other stocks reply all the time. This seems like a real Mickey Mouse operation to me."

    Aggressive: "I'm satisfied. Fully half of my emails to the IR department received replies. A lot of my other stocks never reply at all. This seems like a really professional operation to me."

    II. Survey Results.

    My own answers were Conservative, Conservative, Conservative. What were yours?
