don't you find that negative messages on stocks like ATVI work ? Messages saying it's going to fall down, sales are low, it's losing crazy money, activision is an eidos to be, it's overvalued, it's worth 30% less, 2010 is bankruptcy year, last game had a bad review, etc... i realise it's influencing my trading, i've lost interest in making more orders.
With the success of Call of Duty 2, I don't think there's anything to be worried about. That being said, I could see ATVI trading between $10.90 and $11.78 until earnings are reported. Assuming ATVI doesn't rise substantially into earnings, I think we will see a big jump into the $12.75-13.00 range when 4th quarter earnings are reported in January. After that, the issue is whether ATVI fails and establishes a quadruple top or heads to a new 52 week high.
It may influence your buying decisions but I doubt your buy/sell orders are moving markets. I don't mean any disrespect but I doubt anyone who posts on here has that ability.
Message boards are for entertainment value only. I'll admitt that reading others frustration does make me feel better when ATVI goes down. I also like to hear what the "other side" thinks. Sometimes someone will post an interesting link or some good objective analysis.
Don't think for a second that these postings are moving this or any stock/
But what about that guy who made 850% gains during the worse economic year ever. surely he knows what he is talking about. We should be honored he took the time to post on the yahoo message board before he got on his diamond studded airplane. Thanks great guru for the warning. I sold all my shares and then shorted 10000 more. BTw, while I am at it anyone what to post on what I should eat and when i should shit? I can't figure this stuff out on my own. Thanks!

NOBODY is dumb enough to be influenced by what's written on any of these boards.
Believe me.... when it comes to prying money out of people's pockets, they do they own DD, which DOESN'T include the "expert opinions" of a bunch of frat boys trying to make some beer money for the weekend posting out of desperation on any of these boards.
