lots of people (including nearly everyone here),
have purchased bks stock because of the existence of
bnbn, so clearly some % of it is already in the bks
price. since i am long i only hope that % is not 110
(but this is far from obvious)

very impressed with him ,, I want some BKS ,,
my comments: Not my kind of guru, but whatever. To
whom does the future belong, to the guardians like
Greenspan or the dudes like TokyoMexJoe? Oy veigh!
For those that do not know TokyoMex, let me fill
Go to www.tokyojoe.com and find out
some more about the site.
Second, look at the
number of hits they have received since December
I have followed his picks for a while and so have a
lot of people. BKS will move with people like
The group has a huge following. I also noticed the
time of the post and it was 10:16PM. Should be a good
BTW, please raise your hand if
any of you had a personal meeting with the senior VP
of marketing at BKS? Wouldn't you think that he
(Tokyo) has some insights into the company the rest of us
I didn't think so.
news from TokyoMex is big. Lets see what it does to
Also, AverageHenry, you are a loser
who is short on BKS or a person who really shouldn't
be playing the market. It is sad how many people
claim to be long and concerned when they are dumb
enough to short. For another example of an idiot short,
go visit DanjinQ at the MXTR
Should be a good day tomorrow.
I was curious about that too, and I was told
basically what Dr. Pixel said. But also they told me that
if I sold before 60 days, I'd be black-listed for 60
days after that. But that after that time, I'd be back
where I started and not at a lower place in the heap.
So it sounds like if you're lucky enough to get
offered shares, you could flip them, and ostensibly, do
it two or three more times in the next year. (But
who gets offered that many shares from Wit anyway!
I've never gotten any, and am about ready to give up.
some of us-myself included--are pinning our hopes
on the POSSIBILITY that we'll get the shares we
want. As the say in the NY Lottery ads, all it takes is
a dollar and a dream....
A question for YOU
though. Lets hypothetically say you get lucky and
WitCapital gives you what you want--say 100 shares@$14 a
share. My question is this: If you have 100 shares at
$13 and the market opens for bnbn.com at $50 a share,
do you actually make money before the market even
opens, or do YOU pay 50 p/s.
This is my 1st IPO
play, so forgive the ignorance--it is late and I'm
bagged out after watching BKS gyrations...appreciate an
I forgot which last IPO at Wit I put a bid on,
but it was some internet-related company a week ago.
I read the e-mail offer one hour after it was sent
out. I immediately went on the site and put a bid on
it. Couple days later I find out that all the shares
were taken. Already within an hour!!!
first come first serve allocation is really unfair. The
people who sit around e-mail all day and the ones that
pay lots of $$$ for quick professional notification
services are the ones that benefit!
I didn't read
the e-mail for BNBN until the next day. I really
doubt I'll get any of that.. hahaha
some kind of random lottery process.
just wayyy too much demand for the limited supply
available. The word is about about WIT and there's wayyyy
too many people competing for shares.
I'll stick with my Ameritrade account for a while.
