    I'm dizzy with all the movement

    I thought by selling my very volatile SWS at 57
    (dumb move) and buying INTU 58 that I would have a
    company that would move steadily higher. This fluctuation
    is giving me a head ache.

    Any input to why, I
    know the float is low, and earnings are due out.

    • Whoever said that must not have done their
      homework. Comments like that only shows how many
      "investors" are ignorant of the basic info on the businesses
      in which they are "invested" in. Most often, they
      are more knowledgeable about the stock prices on a
      given day or week or month. It only presents great
      opportunity to those who are in the know.

    • Thanks "Old CPA" for outlining how we can
      anticipate a disappointing quarter, clearly fewer and fewer
      people are using tax preparation software each and every
      year. It's common knowledge that INTU's operating
      margin (for 1998) of 12.4% is woefully inadequate,
      moreover the previous quarter's revenue derived from
      INTU's TurboTax unit increased at a measley 25% (vs.
      prior year). Yes "Old CPA", it looks bleak indeed,
      please forward on to me the stock symbols of the
      assorted Manila based abacus manufacturers whose prospects
      are far more intriging than this old hag.

    • is up and running! Intuit has enlisted 10 billers
      and is ahead of Transpoint. The momentum will pick up
      around the end of this year. This market will be bigger
      than the combined markets of payroll and taxes due to
      its monthly-recurrent nature.

      "It dwarfs
      payroll, it dwarfs taxes. It's probably the biggest kind
      of routine financial transaction that exists," said

      Intuit tests billing on Web site
      By Tim
      Staff Writer, CNET
      May 20, 1999, 1:00 p.m.
      Personal finance software firm Intuit is
      quietly testing online billing and payment on its Web site, though it has just seven firms that let
      consumers view and pay bills online through the site.

      That number puts Intuit slightly ahead of rival
      TransPoint, which has three billers up and running now and
      five due in a week. But the scanty numbers also
      illustrate the current dilemma of online billing: Where are
      the billers?

      Intuit said it expects to bring
      its pilot testing to full operation by late summer.

      The promise of electronic bill presentment and
      payment (EBPP) is widely recognized among banks and

      "It dwarfs payroll, it dwarfs taxes. It's
      probably the biggest kind of routine financial transaction
      that exists," said Bill Harris, Intuit's chief
      executive. But online billing and payment, he said, faces a
      chicken-and-egg problem: To attract consumers to pay bills
      online, it takes a significant number of billers
      presenting invoices online. But billers want enough
      potential payers to justify their investment in the
