    brandman78/neuter/boys boys boys

    I'vf been dissecting your conversations over the
    past
    few weeks and have concluded that you guys
    really
    enjoy this. However, you all are in need of
    immediate
    treatment. I'm in the yellow pages, so look me
    up.

    My Anal y sis of board members is this:


    1. Brandman78- IBM employee, straight laced, and
    worried.
    Type A personality, is probably neuter.
    2.
    Neuter-Texas Billionaire, Austin Powers, been
    around a
    long time, loves posting, can get crude
    if
    provoked. Good at changing writing ability.
    3. Tek-a
    good natured guy who is hiding his true
    identity
    with a particular manner of writing.
    Very
    intelligent guy. Columbia graduate,
    4. A sub-genuius,
    with creative talent, who sometimes
    goes off in
    the deep end. Interesting yet illusive.
    Probably
    was a hippie in younger years, may have been
    in
    Nam.
    5. Plainfielder-straight ibm employee, investor,

    worried. Type B personality, with anal retentive

    overtones. thinks people are talking behind his
    back.
    I got news, they are.

    6. zero-sameo
    sameo. Probably is a multiple alias.

    7.
    Retire2002-one of several aliases, a o.k. guy.
    8. Austin
    Power-Neuter-good writer, writes calls
    possible was big market
    player, is presently
    scared.

    9.
    Achtung-Plainfielder

    10. Final analysis: Many anal retentive
    individuals
    who are predisposed to depression at certain
    times.
    Bi-polar characteristics indicate treatment
    of
    lithium, or possibly prozac, 10 mg. to start,

    with dosage increased as needed.


    11.
    Profit of Doom-probably dr. fungcool. Sometimes
    he's
    not funny.

    Now folks, I am a real
    psychiatrists. I tell my
    friends who are on the net to go to
    this site for
    therapy and a few laughs. They read
    these posts
    and are telling their friends. This
    place is
    very funny.

    • as the official IBM board's market
      psychiatrist
      (I try and treat these poor souls who inhabit
      this
      board) I must stress rule #1.

      Never be
      100 percent in anything. Always hedge
      your bets.
      A little here, a little there, so that
      if one
      goes down, the other goes up.


      http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=^XAU&d=2b

      Now here's my suggestion. I would have a 5-10
      percent
      stake in Gold. check out the gold chart provided
      by
      our wonderful fiends at Yahoo. I would also
      have
      20-50 percent in cash. The rest of my money would
      be
      for bottom picking GREAT STOCKS WITH DECENT PE'S,
      NICE
      PROFIT MARGINS, AND FANTASTIC POTENTIAL. Do that
      after
      the crash, since after the crash, CASH WILL BE
      KING.

      Gold's on the way up to 325 per oz. A
      great hedge.

      Good luck to you, Lefty: please
      give me your personality
      profile when you have
      time so that I fit you into my
      IBM board matrix of
      posters. Remember Louie, you must
      be certifiable to
      post on this board. Do you have papers?

    • I have been 100% cash for the past 3 weeks. Is this too radical?
      LL
      PS I agree with 1K downturn soon

    • there is a chance he may not do show, although
      he's
      expressed a grand desire to BE THERE.


      Yes, highonblue, does have a personality, and a
      sharp
      wit. To you sir, I take off my hat (I wear a
      baseball
      cap, on backwards) Yo...BRO, WHAT'S UP?


      Tek-although there may be a tek rally today, don't be

      point

      comments?

      puny, SELL.

      zero1-Mountains of
      Detroit??

      I go to the mountains of Ashville for my rest and

      park
      your 1969 Maverick next to my DODGE RAM 4 BY
      4.

      As far as new material goes, I'll see what I can
      do.

    • CNKT sales meeting August 12th may announce further news on their agreement with IBM. This message is a special reminder for stock jock . Good Luck!

    • does not take into consideration the retail
      summer season boom and the rise in the minimum wage. So
      there are more people working at Burger King...so what?
      Rates should not rise on this data alone. Wait for the
      CPI on Tuesday for real direction. This selloff is
      overdone and will recover once the "fear" is taken away.


      Mr. Greenspan should look at the overall picture
      before raising rates.

    • I thought of this first!
      TEK/DOC - miss you guys but read all your posts. Screw Brand X!

    • on today.--personally i am bullish from here to
      the fed meeting. teks did a test of last thurs.
      turnaround. got a double bottom. they open hier ,m pull back
      and take off tomorrow aftrnoon. is that a specific
      dart.? oh --except the blue pig of course,
      hahah

      lj (lady jane)--i dont think she has posted much on
      this board. tries to stay with hiclass. ha. actually
      she owns some of the pig. and has a decent profit.
      (her advisor bought it for her---but she thinks i go
      overboard ---shock---in my criticism. you all just wait and
      see. 'enry 'iggins.

      got to run errands be back
      later. i hope.

      tek.

    • My dear fiend blue,
      My bearded clam won't
      do?
      Oh boo, hoo, boo, hoo,
      I've got something
      else for you?

      If you need extra JAM,
      I'd
      like you to meet my little friend,
      Pam,
      She's
      clean as a whistle, and sharp as a thistle,
      And if
      you approach her,
      She'll let you give her a
      big.... KISSLE.

      As far as fish goes,
      I can
      offer you some SHRIMP,
      You'll find then that little
      DINGIE,
      WON'T HANG THERE SO strangely LIMP.

      As
      far as seafood goes,
      I love my Lobster Tail,

      So give me love my dear,
      Very soon, without
      fail.

      And as far as our friend Fung,
      I think
      his song's been sung,
      There is no doubt that he
      is DA MAN,
      And I, Sue, his BIGGEST FAN!!


      I am through with this poem,
      Now I must go ho
      em,
      Ta Ta for now,
      From the Korean Cow!!

    • My Dear friend Sue,
      how do you do?
      Clam
      sauce will do,
      but not from you!

      Afraid I
      am,
      of your bearded clam
      it has extra jam
      from
      your friend named Sam

      I promise not to
      gripe
      but I'm just not your type.
      I don't care for
      mung,
      so Call your good friend FUNG.

      SEA food is
      great
      but I like mine on a plate.

      THE POET....HIGH
      ON BLUE!!!har har har
