I looked at the stagnate stock of ABT that made me glad I dumped it in 02. $48 per share. Three years later hovering in the low to mid $40's. Put it in a savings account and earn at least 2% growth.
Lame duck 5 years running, like the Beetles song: I see it for miles and miles and miles!!
I agree that it does not matter. I would bet that no one on this board is smarter than everyone else about every subject. And when you consider subjects as broad as mathematics, chemistry or music my bet is that some here know more about one of sub disciplines (like analytic chemistry) than others but not about the entire subject as a whole (chemistry) or other more specialized areas (medicinal chemistry).
These subjects are too vast for anyone to be an expert in all aspects of them. In any case, why would anyone care about somebody on a meesage board's opinion about how smart they are? What is "smart? anyway?
<Heh, heh, no, no, AoK, I'm rather tango with Ponty. We could double date, you and Plute, Ponty and I. Buenos Aires even.>
You should rather tango with yourself. I do not need more than Chinatown almost anywhere.
Plute, Ponte, Kiki und Doc , ??? eye-yie-yie. Use your imagination. It sure as hell is not Nashville or Fresno...though it probably should be so.
