    This POS is going LOWER!!!

    Decisive break below 50-day MA.
    Prepare yourself for Chapter 11 for this stock.
    Rising interest rates are the final nail in the COFFIN for this POS.

    • This came over the wire this morning - looks like
      the beginning of the end for several of these content
      only sites - like IVIL. I still can't believe this POS
      was trading close to 130 at one time. Too bad the
      days of EASY shorts are over - but this dog has some
      juice left in it. Remember, any bankrupt candidate can
      be shorted prior to Chapter 11 for a nice gain -
      this one is definitely on my radar. Good
      luck!

      Auditors Question
      Drkoop.com's Viability
      NEW YORK (Reuters) - Independent
      auditors for drkoop.com Inc. (NasdaqNM:KOOP - news) have
      questioned the online health-care network's ability to
      continue as a going concern, the company's annual report
      said.

      This is the most recent in a string of warnings by
      auditors that the viability of some Internet companies is
      on shaky ground.

      Online grocer Peapod Inc.'s
      (NasdaqNM:PPOD - news) recurring losses may have depleted its
      available cash, auditors said, and online music retailer
      CDNow Inc. (NasdaqNM:CDNW - news) may not have enough
      cash to see it through the year.

      A company
      spokesperson could not be immediately reached for
      comment.

      drkoop.com, founded by former U.S. Surgeon
      General C. Everett Koop, went public in June
      1999.

      The annual report said, ``We have received a report
      from our independent auditors for our fiscal year
      ended December 31, 1999, containing an explanatory
      paragraph that describes the uncertainty as to our ability
      to continue as a going concern due to our historical
      negative cash flow and because, as of the date they
      rendered their opinion, we did not have access to
      sufficient committed capital to meet our projected operating
      needs for at least the next twelve months.''

      In
      the report, filed on Thursday, the company details a
      number of its revenue-generating operations, and says
      that its business is difficult to evaluate because of
      its extremely limited operating
      history.

      Shares of drkoop.com closed at 6 1/4 on Thursday, off a
      52-week high of 45 3/4, up slightly from a low of 5 1/4.

    • as there was a segment on Bloomberg TV discussing
      the bleak prospects of the internet sector. Analyst
      was projecting a number of months before sector would
      rebound, if at all.

      On positive side, I do not
      forsee IVIL filing for chapter 11. However, I can see
      the stock easily declining to the $13 - $14 support
      level. I'm looking to possibly buy back into the stock.
      However, I'll wait for it to stabilize first as I do not
      want to attempt to catch a "falling
      knife".

      Could I be wrong? You betcha! I was one the message
      board posters who had originally projected IVIL to be
      trading in the lower 30's by the end of this month. A lot
      of bad press coming out regarding the entire
      internet sector. That, coupled along with the negative
      Barron's news artcle two weeks ago, has really sunk this
      stock. Again, good luck to all.

      • IVIL is tanking because it, like the entire e-com
        sector, is hopelessly buring through cash with no profit
        plan to bring it back. The e-com nonsense, when its
        all said and done, will go down as the biggest scam
        of the past 50 years. The rats (blissful, ignorant
        retail speculators) have followed the piper (those who
        launched the e-scam companies, then cashed out at the
        speculators expense) over the cliff. I, for one, feel no
        sympathy for those chasing a "get rich quick" scheme, then
        come to find out they just lost it all due to greed
        and denial. This e-com nonsense is crashing, and
        nothing will save it. Amazon will be one of the final
        holdouts, but they too will die.

        Only the "click
        and mortor" companies will survive. Straight e-com
        cmapanies are DEAD.
