Spring is a two months
away. Can you really rationize why BNBN will be
anywhere near $100 in such a short period of time? I
didn't think so.
Second, what "quiet period".
That ended many, many months ago.
It seems to
me you are just spouting off and your statements are
an embarrassment to the intellect of many on this
PS. a stock which sells of from 24.25 (your entry
point) to less than 10 is not a "sleeper" its a piece of
dirt. best of luck
I made that prediction on day one of this IPO at
the time it seemed possible. Since you have nothing
to do but research back 16000 post ago to rip my ass
I think you should get away from you screen and go
out and try to find a date. Remember the restraing
order though, you have to stay away from the school
yard and the pinball room where the kids hang out. By
the way I made another prediction back in third
grade, I told all my buddies in the tree fort that I
would be dating Racquel Welch for my prom I now feel
that I embarrassed thier intellect and I apologize.
If I embarrassed anybody else's intellect from the
bizzaro dimention GET A LIFE nobody on this board is
responsible for this stocks preformance.
Jack_key was one of the pioneers investors in
this POS, while you were still 'third hand' in a
Bermuda Circle Jerk.
He learned the hard way what
is means to make an investment in a Riggio scheme.
Something I assume you have not learned as of

Not all IPO's are going to click - Someone gave
me advise to wait 45-60 days before buying in. In
this case it is good advise. but then you miss out on
the big kill every now and then. But that is the
price you pay trying to avoid the big hurt that comes
along every now and then! Like bnbn - a MAJOR HURT for
many in this sector of stock wonderland! I have some
at 15, some at single digits so I'm down too. This
is like death in slow motion - agonizing to ride.
But I look forward to Christmas Chear in about a
year. Like the post you refer too, I think this stock
IS a SLEEPER and will continue to sleep till then.
But the ride could get bumpier here as amzn rides
down and even steeper slope. IMO IMHO IMO and IMFO you
should do the DD cause this could be IMWO.
The fact that this stock was unchanged on Friday,
and slipped very little today, should be seen as a
good sign. With such little volume, this thing could
have easily tanked big-time the last two trading days.
But it did not. Take a look at some of the other
.Com'ers , and be happy you own BNBN. As far as those of
you in at the 25 range, you should have seen this
coming before you bought. The .com IPO's have been
struggling for at least a month. I know because I previously
owned one that I sold to get into BNBN.
Amazon.com is a piece of shit too...
worth the paper it's printed on...
I am neither
short nor long, just glad to see the internuts heading
in the right direction.

Sell now, I have some tulips for sale, or you may want
to buy DRKOOP.COM!
I'm also in BNBN for long and long...
BNBN have access to about 3-4 mil. internet users
through internet providers like: AOL, MSN, Mindspring,
and others alone.
Plus, the stock report(as of
05/29/99) shows that BNBN is "debt-free" so far(no short
and long term debts) and BNBN have really good chance
to post positive earnings(hope before year
However, AMZN's stock report shows that AMZN is in heavy
debts due to mismanagement and expansions(one reason
why I don't invest in AMZN).
Your comments concerning BKS is accurate. I will
disagree with you on BNBN and hype and smoke. If you look
at the financials of BNBN and compare that to AMZN,
it is obvious.
The only advantage AMZN has at
this point over BNBN is that it was out of the gate
first. Period. Sure, I understand that the sales,
visitors, etc. are higher--they should be. But, that
doesn't mean that it will stay this skewed. For those of
us who think we are much smarter than management--I
offer you this. Do you not think that management knows
that it will need to sell CD's, DVD's, etc.? It amazes
me how many "investors" consider investing 3-4 days,
let alone weeks.
I personally think that BNBN
is on the right track. It clearly shows in their PR
on what they are wanting to do. The interview with
BNBN has proven what I am stating. I am willing to be
Let me ask you this question. If the internet sector
was as it was in Nov, Dec. How many of us here would
have bought at 50-60 range for BNBN? I would have and
I know a lot of others who would have. If you
wouldn't have, then why are you complaining about this
Shorting AMZN is a pretty easy thing to do in this market
Bookmaven (granted, shorting was one of the best ways to
make money the last few weeks). I feel more
comfortable going long on a stock, but I have had no problems
with shorting AMZN, AOL or CMGI the last few

severely overpriced or BNBN has a lot of upside in the
Just hoping there is one more dip
to buy more,
here's my opinion:
BKS is woefully undervalued
and is sitting on huge growth potential of its own
(from college bookstores, superstores and things like
"B Dalton") and has historically held at the 30 - 35
range without BNBN.
BNBN is counting on hype and
smoke (the two required elements of an internet IPO) to
build its price. Once it builds to a respectable levels
(your guess as good as mine) it will use this "value"
to acquire properties to expand its web presence to
be a more effective competitor against AMZN and
partner to Bertlesmann. My opinion is Egghead.com,
Computer City and Lycos are all in play (but who knows? we
could buy feetsniffers.com and make a big deal out of
it) But if Lenny R. ever returns my calls, that's
what I'll tell him to do.
I would never short AMZN,
it's like trying to predict the movements of a
rattlesnake. But I would hold BNBN until one of two things
happen; BKS breaks through 30 and/or BNBN aanounces an
acquisition. If the acquisition happens, I'm out a couple days
Good luck Papa and All Longs!
