Dayzee, let me point out what a wonderful person you are to continually take joy from the financial losses of others. You show your true colors every time you do that, which is quite often.
People in glass houses etc... your buy the blue chips strategy didn't work so well on ERTS in the three years from January 2000 to January 2003, or on THQI which dropped 75%, while I used the skimming strategy here with great results. Remember that two year span when I said here that ERTS had no up-side? Yup. Meanwhile you've been calling for ERTS to go up for that entire time, and didn't you predict $80 to be hit at E3? But like all those who go to Vegas, no system is perfect. I took my losses on ERTS and went long last Thursday at around $81.
No prob, Rab. I write with glee and light humor everyday, just its meaning or ramification causes different levels of impact on the reader differently and depending on the stock direction. (When the stock goes down, ya'all just laugh off the warnings.) I did warn you that Deutsche Bank will own more shares (ending 6/30/03) than the number you posted, did I not?
"your buy the blue chips strategy didn't work so well on ERTS in the three years from January 2000 to January 2003 "
Where did you get an idea like that? I didn't do any buying during these periods of stock crash. All of my positions were pre-2000 and ERTS fared much better than most during these crashes.
"...went long last Thursday at around $81."
Thanks for updating me with your after-the-fact trade. Wow, you paid for than my 75.50 level? O horror! Good luck.
