    • how come Booli got all bent out of shape?

    • is talking to RRRR?

    • AOL is more than 50% off now.

      company advertises on AOL. AOL advertising revernue is
      much much more than that of YHOO. Plus subscription
      fee from membership like me who pays 21.95 each
      month, AOL has great earning report. AOL earning growth
      more than 150% quarter after quarter.

      sellers manipulated AOL down to current bargain price.
      But AOL fundamental has not changed. AOL fundamental
      is still very strong.

      It is best time to buy
      AOL at bargain now before institutional investors,
      bargain hunters rash to buy and AOL jumps big


      By Rick
      Aristotle Munarriz (TMF Edible)

      As for America
      Online, it got the "You've Gotta Bail!" treatment in
      Barron's over the weekend. A hedge fund manager wasn't
      impressed with insiders selling four million
      shares recently. Keep in mind, the company has more than
      a billion shares outstanding. Still, what fun would
      a short covering rally be without shorts.

      The manager, Seabreeze Partners' Doug Kass, feels the
      stock could lose half its value as the company faces
      pricing pressure in the future from charitable upstarts.
      Let's put this into perspective. Even if AOL were to
      tumble below $50, that would only be taking the stock
      back to where it was in December. If Kass were to
      project a single-digit share price for AOL that would
      only take it back another year. Hey, AOL is
      even with what many figured would be S&P 500 stability
      this year. But what are the odds of AOL doubling over
      the year ahead and Kass making the same argument?
      Implying today's price is a fair price?

      the whole "free Internet" argument as a death knell
      for AOL baffles me. AOL was never the cheapest as it
      ran circles around the competition. This wasn't the
      service of choice for 20 million bargain-hunters. It was
      simply the best. Unique immediate content that inspired
      unique immediate community is not something an aspiring
      ISP can provide.

      The real kicker here is
      that someone concerned with AOL's pricing structure
      would bring up the free access revolution in the first
      place. What is subsidizing fee-free online connections?
      Advertising. Doesn't that vindicate AOL's business model?
      Sure, AOL's next price move might be lower rather than
      higher, but if that continues to add subscribers is
      advertising going to suffer? AOL announced this morning that
      900,000 newbies will join up this quarter. Profit
      projections of $0.13 a share are in line with the analysts.
      Only a third of the domestic Internet market has been
      tapped and the world is full of virgin topsoil.

      Is America offline? No. Are the multi-million dollar
      sponsorship deals showing any hint of hooking up with
      abatement? No. So, what's the worry here? Nobody really owns
      the water. Let the world sample the free water
      fountains. They will still thirst for Coke. Let them delight
      at finding free television weeklies bundled in the
      local Sunday papers. They will still thumb through TV

      Besides, am I the only one who sees the
      fallacy in these government cheese ISPs? They are relying
      on ad space to offset access costs. Now, ask
      yourself this: if you had a product to sell and had a
      finite supply of ad dollars, where would you turn? Would
      you go with AOL or would you go where the
      demographics have been weaned off disposable income to the
      point where $20 for convenient monthly access is passed

      I've never seen a billboard on a water
      fountain, and I say that with some degree of authority.
      After all, my son almost inherited the water....!!
