    Nice to read ya!


    Don't agree with you on Wackit actually buying DKS at anytime. His original messages were childlike in their deception. I'll bet he is both a short and a TSA shill. Below are several messages pre/post 8/20/03.

    I know a sociopath when I see one - this is one. This is truly a crooked man! Read on and let his own words indict him.

    Walket's Words of Wisdom:

    "...have paid too much for this stock at $40. Is it overpriced here or can it move up? All the other retailers were up today except for DKS. Maybe that's a harbinger of what to expect in the future."

    "I'm in at 40, and usually that spells the kiss of death."

    "Ready to bail at 37.2 or 7% off my entry point."

    "Hope I won't have to. But knowing my luck, DKS will fall to 30 or so."

    "I think you might be right, but I was hoping to find a winner in DKS."

    "As you know DKS has done very well since its ipo, but now that I have a position in it, it's sure to tank, file for bankruptcy, get embroiled in a corporate scandal, or just simply miss their eps numbers."

    "That's the way it always works when I buy a stock."

    "Sorry longs. But at least when it hits 37 this week, I'll be out."

    "About that rain thing, it's hard to have a sunny outlook when you've been burned so many times."

    "For example, had a position in RYL back in May. It was doing great, riding one of the biggest and best boons in homeownership in history."

    "Then IT happened. The largest, fastest bond sell off since '87. Over 150 bp's in 3 weeks. Sending HB's down, down through their 50 mda and further."

    "Needless to say, it fell below my 7% entry point. That's just one example.

    "Now, what's in store for DKS now that I own it?"


    "I hope I didn't make the same mistake with DKS. Do you see it topping out here?"

    "DKS is breaking to new highs and as a result finds itself in uncharted territory, but don't all great companies continue this trend until something fundamentally changes?"

    "As far as DKS, I hope it gains more before taking a breather. I'd hate to sell this one.
    Thanks for your advice."

    Then after 8/21/03 - Things got a little sour.

    "DKS is really worth more about $25 than $40.
    I'd hate to admit, I'm long this stock."

    "This thing is obviously waaay overpriced.
    Down 7%.
    Very mediocre report.
    Very mediocre company.
    Total disappointment all around.
    boo hiss boo hisss"

    "40 again in about five years.
    This thing is toast.
    Can you say out-of-business sale?"

    "Face it, you're all be suckered."

    "violated, that few will want to hold.

    I'm surprised even old Max, the cheerful, is hanging on.

    Let's see, if he got in at 20 or so, he should be close to break even when this thing hits 21 in a few months.

    Long and weak Max old boy. Your profits are slowly does it feel?

    Ouch, ouch, ouch"

    The evolution of Wackit is obviously contrived and based on a short position. Max, Wackit should invest all of his asset's short on DKS and wait till it hits $20. A Position that will burn his ass to a crisp! The squeeze is on for Wackit.
