    • I liked it! "Above are just scenarios. I cannot
      guarantee it, but I worked this out from the charts,
      numbers, experience etc"

      Dear Mehmet, what kind of
      experience is that I wonder! $55-75 level! Come to your
      senses mate! We are talking about a segment leader here!
      Forget all the chart bullshit! Take a look at the
      fundamentals once, however I would not recommend it if you are
      as skilled in B/S reading as assessing support and
      resistance levels!

      Life is too short for shorters!

    • SHORT

    • today and back down to up errr uh ughh, who knows where between now and next friday.

    • Hey everybody, check out the following
      link.

      Mr. Mehmet predicted eBay to tank to $67-70 range
      today. I guess he's been busy covering his
      ASS.

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

    • I know-it feels funny to see 10 points in 30
      min.I had time to cover at 76 but jumped right back in
      at 79.(I did it because I felt the rally had some
      power but I sure hope it was just a fake).
      I am
      going to feel it and play as we go along.I will
      probably
      take a chance through friday and if the market goes up
      I'll sit
      tight and wait for a down day to start
      plaing again and if it
      goes down I'll try to cover at
      the bottom and wait for another
      fake
      rally).
      God bless,Dublibubli.

      Even bullish sell-side analysts are sensing that
      there soon will be a great shakeout in e-land. Merrill
      Lynch analyst Henry
      Blodget says "75% of all
      Internet companies will either be acquired or [they will]
      fail." After pounding the table for many
      of
      skyrocketing Net names, investors are looking to Blodget to
      find a way out of this Heartbreak Hotel. "It's like
      I'm Elvis and
      now everyone is throwing garbage and
      stuff at me," says Blodget.
      .....
      Uh, Henry,
      take your Lithium. You are more grandiose than the
      President. They are throwing garbage at you because you
      suck.

    • I noticed you spelled "suck" very well........

      Longs Live, Shorts Die

    • HALLOOOOOOOO.....NOTHING AGAINST LONGS AND
      SHORTIES, SINCE I AM BOTH. BUT I SURE KNOW WHEN IT IS TIME
      TO STOP SHORTING, GIVE AND TAKE LITTLE...SURE TIME
      TO MOVE UP SOON GANG. THE FOURTH QUARTER WILL BE A
      WINNER FOR MOST INTERNET BLUE CHIPS, WHICH INCLUDES
      EBAY!!!

      PART 3 of 3 Re: eBAY

      Next on the block is uBid.
      uBid is much more a competitor to Onsale than to eBay.
      The company also focuses on selling refurbished
      consumer electronic items, auction style, with bids
      beginning at $7 per item. Over 90 manufacturers provide the
      usual closeout products that sell on the site. uBid's
      registered users totaled only 533,000 as of last quarter, up
      41%. uBid lost $4.2 million on $45.6 million in
      revenue in the second quarter. On July 21, uBid filed to
      sell 2.0 million shares of its stock to the public to
      raise funds. The stock is at $22, down from a vertigo
      inducing $189, and just two dollars above its all-time
      low.

      On April 12, eBay sold 6.5 million shares
      of stock at $170 per share, raising a tidy war chest
      at an opportune moment. From May 15 to June 14, the
      stock fell from $196 to $136, a slide instigated by the
      June 11 site outage. The stock recovered above $160
      afterwards, but since then it turned to fall to current
      prices on word that management would increase spending
      on international expansion, marketing, and
      technology. eBay will remain profitable, however, and
      management is comfortable with year 2000 earnings per share
      estimates.

      eBay has the cash, market lead, and an
      early highly scaled inventory-free business model that
      so many others covet. Yahoo! and Amazon are its most
      formidable competitors, but eBay has a giant leg-up on each,
      and it commands most mind-share for online auctions.
      eBay is in such a good position that it almost must
      mess up in order to lose its lead and momentum. The
      ball is in its court. eBay is the leading horse taking
      the first turn, and there is no second place horse
      close behind.

      HELLOOOOOOOO.....NOTHING AGAINST
      LONGS AND SHORTIES, SINCE I AM BOTH. BUT I SURE KNOW
      WHEN IT IS TIME TO STOP SHORTING, GIVE AND TAKE
      LITTLE...SURE TIME TO MOVE UP SOON GANG. THE FOURTH QUARTER
      WILL BE A WINNER FOR MOST INTERNET BLUE CHIPS, WHICH
      INCLUDES EBAY!



      eBay to win, place, or show.
      And eBay to win. Our two bets. Not in that order.
