1.) They are very aware that the daily deals model has fallen out of favor.
2.) They are very actively pursuing other ways of generating revenue.
3.) They have the market share and money to do this effectively.
4.) The board will replace Mason as CEO if earnings in February don't drastically improve share price.
5.) Mason knows this.
6.) This stock is worth between $3 and $4 a share based purely on fundamentals.
7.) This stock's PEG is less than 1.00 (look up PEG if you need to understand why that's important).
8.) Andrew Mason ISN'T your typical CEO. He's a big idea kind of guy who has a MFA in Music. He's almost (if not) Aspergerish. Very much in the same vein as Steve Jobs. I'm not saying the results will be the same, but I'd rather bet on someone like him than someone like Mark Pincus, who tries very hard, but basically has never had an original idea in his life. However, people like that DO need either time to learn how to be successful CEO's, or they need someone to help perform that role for them.
9.) This stock might go to the pink sheets.
10.) Any stock might go to the pink sheets.
11.) Suck it up ... you're basically gambling. If you don't have the stones, put your money in a passbook savings account.
12.) Have a good day. I'm going to go EARN some money. Good luck to all.
