I don't think they get paid. If they did I'd fire the one liner guy for being so damn lazy. They are just getting all worked up about making the trend go in the direction they want it to go. Kind of like the kid that cries after losing the baseball game instead of working out and practicing to get better. If you really do this and are successful the message boards are the last place you spend your time. If you are desperate and in a hurt you spend time treading water on the message board. Options coming due! Watch it spike and kill all the shorts now. Sorry about that just an opinion.
I actually own PUT options. So I guess that makes me 'ignorant'.
Why do you pumpers pump the console wins but fail completely to factor in the desktop losses? You understand that the consoles will never replace the revenue AMD lost in the console market? That's why the stock price is languishing. It is like celebrating the money you make at a garage sale while losing your job.
They are paid to post no one is so ignorant as to actually have a negative position at this point they're just hoping to sway a few novice investors unfortunately for them their efforts do not amount to much you can actually relatively accurately predict a positive day based on the amount of ridiculous banter they become more and more desperate as the days go by I sure would not want to be in a short position
