Two things here for obvious ameteurs, such as yourself:
1) You would be surprised as to how many people come across these boards when checking into a product. But thank you for volunteering to speak for the entire board.
2) As for the amateur in you, wouldn't you think that Ford investors would be a bit more wary of investing in Ford if they read that Ford is not servicing their customers well? The bottom line is great for hind-sight investing, though anyway it looks as though your hind is what you use anyway, but custeomer retention is often key to forward-looking investing. So, yes, if Etrade treats all its customers as amateurish as "movin-on" posts, then you had better bail on this stock.
Enjoyed listening to your perspective.
mortgage? I have had experience with these guys and told them that if I did not get some type of resolution then I would post details. Will post more when have time. For now, just do your homework.
Obviously you have not read them. They are looser than Bush's. Let's take a non-tax issue. McCain was livid at the Bush admin who tried to say that waterboarding was not torture. And to accuse a 72 year old of being senile is childish.

The act of introducing something new.
Something newly introduced.
You are admitting that the Japanese improved on US vehicles. Hey, I'll only buy a Japanese one nowadays. But if taking an idea and using that for the basis of another design, then that is exactly what MSFT has done. It's either all innovation, or, per dictionary.com, none of it is.
And teens are what drive this market. Do you want to calculate potential bits of information which may prove quality? Or do you want to try to calculate teen reaction which proves the bottom line? Those who tried to take that line with AAPL years ago wish they paid more attention to sellability
However, despite your good points on bits of information, realize that the average user is not a computer guru. Graphics is indeed a major selling point. My neighbor's spoiled 14-year old kid, for instance has a Supernintendo, got a Playstation 2, and now he has just gotten the XBOX. He swears that the XBOX is the greatest. So, of course, my kids went over to spend the entire evening, calling every 15 minutes to extend their playtime despite it being a schoolnight. 4 for 4 was the final tally. My 3 kids and the neighbor all state that XBOX is fantastic. Now I'm stuck having to buy an XBOX in the very near future.
If the settlers shoot Arabs as they please, they how the hell does somebody such as yourself know about it? Twas one settler. Every time you appear to have a hint of decency in your tone, you resort back to making ridiculous claims. Face it. I have been there many times, as well as to Arab countries. I REALLY went over there originally with very little knowledge or opinion on the middle east. The Israelis, in general, have a very western attitude, whether you like to admit it or not. The Arabs, though they are generous (as are the Israelis), they still often make statements, such as "we should kill Americans. If I saw an American walking the street and my son slit his throat, I would spit on him (yes, one 'nice' man of about 50 told me that while serving me tea! After a few moments, I looked at my watch and said that I had an appointment)". It is a culture. Whether or not you admit to it, some people are brought up being able not only to see a tortured dead body, but being able to rejoice in the sight. Israelis, even most of the right wingers are not like that at all. NO I am not AIPAC. YES I was objective before I spent time over there.
Shooting Arabs as they please is not only misinformation, it is a lie.
Bulldozing entire villages is a lie. And for not having permits is a lie (it is retaliation for terrorism).
As for presidents and politicians agreeing with you, the only one is your idol, Buchanon. No US president has ever stated that Israel treats Hebron in an apartheid manner.
As I said, I have no problem with you voicing your opinion, but back it with real facts. You are a liar and you know it.
Two more points:
1. Until this day, you have still not condemned a particular act of Arab terrorism. You have merely condemned ALL terrorism which cleverly leaves it up to one's interpretation, such a slanted manner as many Arab countries do.
2. You did not respond to my previous question. Without that, I stand by my words that you are a supporter of terrorism and the like which stuck so horrendously at the WTC.

Your right. I am Vanek. You, with your name sound
like one of the moral majority idiots. Damn the left
wing radicals, right? Anybody who tries to be middle
of the road must be one of 'them'. I did not agree
with Vanek. I just don't see any firm evidence that he
is a fraud. And if Vanek has never shown reason,
then look at my posts... enough reason to make your
Jerry Falwell ass shiver. Now, where's your reason?
My friends, do not jump to conclusions. Vanek had
some points, though they were never backed by facts
and figures. To assume that he is a fraud is the same
as to assume that he is not. Basically I do not mind
him posting and it is better than the overexcited
juniors that tout and route this stock daily. But I
suggest that posters use logic and share hard news thus
weeding out the childish emotional ravings that are often
seen on this thread.
Vanek, you have wit, and,
possibly, wisdom, and I would welcome your posts... as long
as they have some basis that others can rely on
(Barron's article, other publications, your own logic or
facts such as sales, etc.).
It should be mentioned that Mario Gabelli was the
one who spoke about TMCS. He actually thought that
USAI was great but that it was bolstered by a
basically greater TMCS.
Face it. TMCS has what a
clear-thinking internet investor wannabe needs. It has the
potential internet explosiveness coupled with a
near-monopoly successful and flourishing business. I, myself,
have never invested in internet stocks and I have a
terrific track record. But I finally got interested and
put some in TMCS. Have seen the ups and downs of
stocks and realize that it takes time to develop, but
TMCS will be a high flyer.
As for Vanek of
whatever, his big announcement on Tuesday may be that he's
gay or that he has three eyes, but that will not
detract from a stock that has an excellent track record
in the business world.
Brokers have goals for reasons. A strong buy will
be issued after its clients are already in a stock.
Generally, a 'stong buy' is put out on a stock which was
underwritten by another company, a stock which has been out
there, and its own clients have bought already.
Normally, this is a true opinion by the brokerage and it
causes an increase in the price immediately. But for
TMCS, DLJ has an interest in maitaining a reasonably
low price, getting its investors in slowly, and then
upping its ratings.
I expect that TMCS has excellent chances to move
in sinc with the other high-flying internet stocks
for reasons that I have published
However, Vanek's luck at picking the price is exactly
1. Even a company insider, a market maker, or
an underwriter cannot predict so closely the price a
month ahead of time.
2. I find it hard to believe
that such a well-informed individual would have an
advisory team and live in the fast-pace metropolis of
"Benson, North Carolina". Probably some redneck who is
hoping for this price.
3. Hush period is over. If
Vanek has some info, then he can freely publish it,
unless it is inside information, which is quite unlikely
for a good ole' southern boy on a Pasadena, CA
Enough people have given their unfounded price targets,
be it $20 or $180. An intelligent investor realizes
that no price target can be made on a compnay as such
since there is no real data to go by. We can only hope
by following earlier internet trends and gamble.
What's this team? Do you honestly believe that
somebody will buy into this because you have 'news'? TMCS
has a good chance to rise because it is a household
name and is as well known as some of the successful
internet stocks and because it has a real backer. However,
what would stop you from posting your so called news?
Yes, it is indeed a story that is out there. Yes,
it is logical. But is it really that big a deal? All
it may be is an advertisement for TCMS on the MSFT
webpage. If you go to Yahoo business, which is hit on
endlessly every day, you would see a logo for CDNW. But has
CDNW skyrocketed? MSFT could help greatly, but then
again, it may be no big deal.
Helluva name for somebody that wants to make
money from facts. Now that I got a jab in, I'd like to
say that you are correct.
I love the 'experts'
who note that there is a support level at a certain
price. How the hell can somebody tell me that there is
support at 65? And another says that there is resistance
at 80? Yeah, he knows that at the magic number 80
the stock will shoot up.
However, while there
is little fact about TMCS, for the adventerous,
there is the following:
1. TMCS can become a
near monopoly in its field on the net.
internet stocks skyrocket as soon momentum pulls in. There
is an excellent chance that TMCS will become one of
3. TMCS is partially owned by a
successful business with a track record.
4. The brokers,
as self-serving as they may be, have put positive
spin on TMCS' outlook.
5. TMCS is already a
While one may argue that the
internet stocks are overvalued, or whatever, TMCS appears
to be with less competition and more publicity and
recognition than those other high-flyers... with a few
exceptions. In addition, as the net moves forward, the strong
will flourish, the weak will wain. And mergers will
continue to grow among the strong. For this, I am buying
TMCS, tomorrow, if there is no run-up on the first
trade. But I will do so with a buy-stop. Oh, and I have
an impeccable track record, and have rarely bought
