just spend 5 mins looking at the fundamentals.
This is going to fall like a rock. 4B valuation, 26mil
in rev, losing money like a startup but 9 yrs old.
Daytraders are going to see this one soon and destroy it to
a more reasonable valuation, 15$ per share, and
that's generous. Insiders are lining up to sell at this
elevated price, can't sell yet but will soon, so get in
A friend of mine has the inside scoop on this
stock and he says that will go down to 30 pretty soon.
Now, I'm not saying that this is going to happen...you
know the whole buyer beware thing...but this guy has
been right in the past. So, you should consider this
and the future of you and your kids.
This stock should be going up why is it going
back? Another carefully planned atempt to keep womyn
down? Probaly. You cant keep it down forever shorters
you pigs. Soon it will be back to 130 and you will
all die. Never before have i seen a message board
that is such a hive of scum and villanry

ALERT!: NTBK take-over Rumors
swirling around that AMTD will announce
takeover/partnership with NetBank(NTBK).
AMTD has been under
pressure to partner with an online bank
E-Trade(egrp) and Telebanc(tbfc) merger last month.
IVIL makes as much sense as any other internet
stock as far as I am concerned--but that doesn't mean
they won't make it. At a recent conference I did my
own survey. All the women there knew that IVIL was a
"site dedicated to women". Some had visited, the rest
said they planned to use it. In this game it is
setting yourself up as the NAME of choice--why else
Amazon? That is why IVIL will acquire Women First and
X-ers! and any other site that they can grab that to
cement their position in the mind of women. Agree they
have limited time, so look for some big announcements
in next few weeks.
Here are the
1) The April to May Media Metrix report shows an
actual DECLINE in IVIL's number of distinct visitors.
IVIL's ridiculous market cap/stock price is predicated
upon massive, sequential growth in this number. Go to
the Media Metrix web site and read the
2) IVIL generates approximately 90 million page
views per month. (You do know what a page view is,
don't you, Mr. Sophisticated web-site investor?) If
IVIL sold 2 banner ads per page at a $10 CPM (you do
know what "CPM" is, don't you, Mr. Sophisticated
web-site investor?), it would generate $1.8 million in
monthly revenue (about $22 million a year). Meanwhile,
IVIL's expenses are well over $50 million a year. Do the
math, moron. (And I've got news for you: they ain't
CLOSE to selling that many banner ads).
