I just heard that the CEO quit, and the stock is plunging as I type. I don't know the details yet. Just sounding an alert. I'm sure we will hear more before the day is over.
If this is such a bad stock, you must not be in it. So, why are you here...or are you trying to short it, and are afraid you might lose the few nickles and dimes that you have invested ? I'm sure that most on this board are ignoring your babble.
I'm really surprised that Yahoo hasn't already done something about it. With enough complaints from us, they probably will. Start flagging every ad. It will eventually be noticed.
Anyone who pays attention to Seeking Alfa is a fool. I remember reading that they can no longer write articles for Yahoo Financial because of lying to manipulate share holders. There is no reason to place trust in their posts either.
If you trust the company whose shares you bought, you should hold them until the market improves, not sell them for pennies on the dollar just so some pinhead can short his. This down turn won't last forever.
Not yet. Good time to buy will be at $16.00 - then hold and buy on dips. It will go back up a bit, and come back down before then, but wait until it reaches that price. Trust me on this one.
Don't worry about the "warehouses filling with frozen stuff ". It will all be sold off during the holiday season, with more new items coming in.
I remember being very angry at buying FB at $42.16, just to watch it swindle to $17.00 a few weeks later. I sold at $28.00, and at the time, was happy to get some of my money back. Right now, today, FB is sitting at $84.00. Had I waited, I would have doubled my money.
The smart thing to do is sit out the swings. Its only happening because people are selling, afraid of losing it all. They are the ones making the stock go down. Hang in there if you bought on the high end. It will rebound when the sell-off ends.
I believe this company has excellent potential down the road, but I will wait until the selling ends before buying, like I should have done with FB. If you can afford to hang in there, you could double your money in time.
Good luck to all.
This always happens with a new IPO. Thats why I watch for a week or two before deciding to by. The day traders are always at work on opening day. Some of you will never learn.
Ebay has allowed the Chinese ruin their site by letting by letting them sell mechandise for 99 cents with no shipping charge, just for a few extra dollars. Anyone knows that shipping from China is a total loss for the seller. So why are they doing it ? So that they can use your address and email for spam and scam. It looks like Etsy is doing the same thing. It won't be much longer before their sales drop as well. Greed is alive and well.
If you bought this stock, you should watch it closely.
Why should you care what everyone else does, unless you want the stock to go down so that you can buy cheaper ? Or did you foolishly short this stock and are afraid it won't go down ?I'm buying.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Your tax accountant can probably help you more than anyone here, I just turn everything over to my tax man and let him figure it out. You can always call cVOC for the information needed. They will know what the cost basis is for the year, based on principal and interest (I think)..
Also, Schwab has a copy of every buy/sell you have made in that stock, and should be able to tell you your final cost basis. Try those two. I'm sure one of them can give you the correct answer.
Certainly not Godaddy. He's taking all of your money. Down, down, down he goes, and where he'll stop is anyone's guess. You'd best cast him aside while you still have a few nickels left.
I passed on this one because of the company's hipe and poor customer service. Just because their name is recognizable, doesn't mean they are worth investing in. The book value of this stock is zero, and the shares were priced at triple where they should have been.
Always do your research before forking over your hard-earned money.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
This stock will end up in the $7-10 range and remain there. The company has zero stock value, and poor customer service. Just Google the complaints. They seem to be more interested in racing cars than taking care of their business. I passed on this one.
about to lose their bippy on this one....but hold on - it could come back, and if it does, that's when I'll buy.
...it's book value - what the shares are really worth. A lot of people never even look at that.
A week ago MEET's book value was $2.02. A couple of days ago, it was at $2.03. I just noticed that it is now at $2.054. So it is definitely going up in value. A lot of people are ot only joining this social media, they are also buying ad holding this stock. I honestly believe this stock will really catch hold and go on up this year.
The reason it is still jumping around is because the day traders are playing with it, which is giving longs excellent buying opportunities to buy on dips.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
If I'm not mistaken, the trust is managed by Mellon Bank, but I don't know what their responsibility is if all of Whiting ends up being sold. If the trust is invested in Whiting, and all of Whiting is sold off, where will the trust's investment go, and how will it be maintained ?
I guess I'm getting a bit antsy, since I am holding over three thousand shares, and it is now 2/3 down from when I bought it. When you are retired and depend on investment income, this much of a lost can get your attention.
If Whiting ends up being sold intact , will the buyer be required to continue with this trust, or can it be wiped out entirely ? Or if by selling in pieces, what happens to the trust if it isn't part of what is sold ? No smart#$%$ answers please. I would really like to know if there are any SEC rules that apply.
