    • My on-line broker provides opinion from a company called SECOND OPINION.

      This opinion came out today.

      In October 1999 I bought 1000 shares of CMGI based on an article in the Wall Street Journal. Just by pure luck I sold all in January 2000. Check the historic prices.

      I have watched CMGI since then and have bought it a few times and made a few cents.

      Last Friday I bought 5000 shares for 1.96. Today I bought 10,000 shares for 2.02 and another 5000 shares for 2.00.

      Either I will repeat my good fortune of year 2000 or I will go down with a sinking ship.

      I hope SECOND OPINION knows what it is doing!

      Good luck. I would not recommend that you invest any amount that you cannot afford to lose.

      I have been investing in stocks and mutual funds since 1974 and I know that sometimes the "sure things" turn out to be real stinkers!
