Prospect Capital Corporation Message Board

    the effect of message boards

    My impression is this: in a small float stock -- FULL, for example -- a well-timed message board post can make a difference.

    In a large float stock like IBM, not so much.

    Even with PSEC, I don't believe a significant post -- pump or dump -- will do much.

    I do believe heavy share investors read this board and groups of them can move in reaction to a post, but I still don't believe it is enough volume to make a dent.

    Here are some consequences of posting I can imagine being realistic:
    individual investors make changes -- so you might influence folks on this message board to sell or buy, but not enough to impact share price
    enough OT posting can drive away meaningful conversation about a stock or the company
