    • Anyone address the 210 million dollar hit, snoopy took on world com, as they will delist it on the NYSE this Friday. Down to a penny a share. Now there is a good buy!

    • Wrong again. Bye bye~

    • for good because you showed me proof. But don't tell me that you and FJACKASS are man of words. Didn't you say in one of your post that you will put me in the ignore list for good. You broke that word too and so did the JACKASS.
      FJACKASS is a liar too in this case. Ok you didn't say tou're gonna leave this board if you break your word. Twilighzon is leaving this board but any reference to twilightzon in any post from you, the JACKASS and SNOOPY, I will be back to stay for good.

    • We'll see which way he'll twist this one around!

    • Twilighht said he'd leave this board if we could show a press release in which Bob said the purpose of the IPO was for M&A purposes. So, a few days ago I pulled out an old post that quoted from Met's 11/24/99 Press Release. However, twilight obviously had no intention of fulfilling his promise - WHAT A SURPRISE!!! - and states that "You can't call that press release. Alpal just typed it." So, below are posts of mine from 9/14/00 (post # 1294) and 3/3/01 (post # 3330), both of which refer back to the original 11/99 press release. Both posts are still in existence on this board. (Simply enter the post numbers in the appropriate box and the posts will appear - voila!!) And before you ask, you will note that in 3330 I state "Back in September, I posted the note below based on a press release from MetLife's web site. Interstingly enough, I just tried to find that press release on their web site and it does seem to be missing. Hmmmm"

      So, unless the twit is looking to argue that almost two years I posted something on this board that I fabricated for the intended purpose of getting him off this board - to which I say, "If I had thought of it, I would have done it" - it is time to pull up the covers and say "nighty night." Do I think he will be a man of his word and do what he said he'd do? In response to THAT question,I refer back to his hero.

      Who Stole the Press Release?

      Back in September, I posted the note below based on a press release from MetLife's web site. That press release was intended to explain the reason for MetLife going public. I do not think that much has changed in the past 6 months, except for the renting out of the home office.

      Interstingly enough, I just tried to find that press release on their web site and it does seem to be missing. Hmmmm

      - AGRESSIVELY pursue strategic opportunities
      - Provide a wider array of customer services
      - Mergers and Acquisitions
      - Product Enhancements
      - Additional security to policyholders.

      So far, you've sold off some chump-change assets and bought a bank with a handful of customers. (Oh yeah, let's not forget all the scaffolding work going on.) In the meantime, other financial institutions are changing the face of the financial world. NOT TOO IMPRESSIVE so far!

    • Yeah, this is from the Onion...this was a classic! Good one to pull out ox!

    • I sited 5 sources, Al one. Go back to being bigbang, and now your new hot dog vendor handle. If you want proof, go to the library. In your town, that's the trailer with all the comic books in it.

      Where's my two year old post, douchebag!

      I knew you were going to do this. Your a lyer who enjoys making statements to fit your own argument.

      Go fuck yourself.

    • the press release and I'll do my end of the bargain. You can't call that press release. Alpal just typed it.

    • Thanks for your support, Al! I hope he holds up his end of the bargain and just goes away!

    • Businessweek November, 1998;
      The architect of the board's decision, which was announced on Nov. 29, is Robert H. Benmosche, MetLife's new CEO. His main argument in favor of demutualizing: For MetLife to tap its intrinsic value, energize its culture and make acquisitions to stay competitive, it must become a public company.

      Financial E News, Decmber 1999

      MOTHER MET - Is the latest of the big mutuals to announce plans to convert from a mutual to a publicly-traded stock company. The giant East Cost company has over 1.7 trillion of inforce life insurance and the initial stockholder base Chairman Robert Benmosche also announced his intent to purchase a commercial bank, saying that the strong brand recognition would put MetLife Bank in the ranks of household names like Chase Manhattan and Citibank.

      Motley Fool Nov. 24, 1999
      With liquid, valuable stock at its disposal, MetLife will be free to pursue mergers and acquisitions as it seeks to provide consumers with a full range of financial and insurance products.
