Recently their has been all this discussion about free internet and how it is going to affect AOL. If you go to AOL.com you'll notice that AOL already offers "free access". They are giving away 250 hours of free usage. At an average usage of 50 minutes a day (I believe this is what AOL's last quarter stats were)this equals 300 days of free access--almost 1 year. I'm long AOL and I believe that they have a great future. I do however think that the majority of their new users will not be contributing to earnings for some time (accept maybe via advertising and e-commerce).
I only bought Aol as a trade. Let me tell you if it got to 130 I would be jumping for more joy than you no. I am pretty fully margined right now and it's all in Aol. I have a nice profit but I am sticking around for at least 15 points. It's great when you're twenty and you have a good feel for this game. If Aol got to 130 my yearly ROI would be over 300%. Wouldn't that be nice. I am at 167% right know.
