the AFFY longs busily rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. The AFFY Chumps are always busy surmising the great payout on their savvyiest of investments. Kind of like farmers counting chickens before the eggs are hatched.
I would take my chances on the Titanic's deck as there are life boats and a reasonable amount of visibility to prepare unlike Shorts on the Kursk....... That fail to cover.
Godwinpeak, what's with your anger towards AFFY? People hear know the risk. Every post you have is negative. Let people make their own decisions. If the company was going under, what does it matter to you?
Its part of WS to have a team of people like GW (fake characters) who sit on a board and post constant BS every 30 mins to wear down the retail investors who read these boards. Even on the weekends. Really shameful. Just like they did on QCOR at $20 and ARNA at $1.25. Need I go on.
Curtis, don't try to figure it out. GWP is more than likely paid to be here and do what he is doing. Don't take it personally. Know what you own with your AFFY position, imagine the possibilities inherent in it, and consider this message board to be the online equivalent of a three ring circus, because that is exactly what it is.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Tsk, tsk, tsk. Bad bashing, GWP... Focus on the company and the stock when you bash here, not the people like me that are investing in it. Don't personalize the bashing and attack the people who have the positions in AFFY, because all that it does is make them want to hold on even tighter to their shares. You know better than that...
Riddle me this, Captain Negative... What stock do you think is a better investment than AFFY right now? Would you be willing to pit any stock of your choice against the performance of AFFY for the rest of 2013? Would Yahoo! allow you to do that, or do they prohibit you from talking about other stocks when you do your paid bashing here?
Go on... Pick a stock, any stock. Hit me with your best shot. Let's see if you can outperform AFFY and where it will go from $1.01/share in terms of percentage gain from today with your stock pick over the next 6 months. Your move!
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I posted earlier that I was a big fan of HALO when it was in the low 5s. I also like GILD. I would take either of these stocks over AFFY, even though they have already risen significantly in value. I plan to close my AFFY short position after AFFY goes bankrupt. I usually day trade so I am not much of a buy and hold kind of investor. I would have liked to have day traded AFFY but I have not done so because once I close my short position I cannot reenter a short position. Retail can only go long AFFY and I do not want to be a bagholder.
