shhhh, i got some stocks i want to dump and i was going to use the power of OSO to pump them up a bit.... but you caught me

I still think it would be cool to have a place to post questions about financial/business stuff without digging through apache and name calling threads, although if some business went bad in there, those might be even worse threads.

I come to this site because the members here know boats.
And I trust(a good amount of) the info I get here.
I also like to hear your opinions, cuz many of us own very cool boats.

Stocks??? no thanks.

Here's some REAL good insider trading scoop.

If my @ss buys a stock, and you own it, then you need to sell it cause it's fixing to drop like a rock.

If my @ss sells a stock, then you need to buy it cause it's fixing to climb to the moon.

That's the honest gospel. If you follow those rules, you will soon own the universe...

Me Too!!!!! I single handedly brought down AOL and Worldcom...as well as a few others. I've pretty much decided to keep all of my $$$ in the S & P 500 Fund.

The Financial Forum is a good idea......but moderating it would have to be done very carefully and it probably would end up not being a good thing for the board. Too much potential controversy and "unlawful" posts. Just my .02

It will Probably cause HUGE bickering fest just like Politics. Catman/LPA/Supercrash will be back saying how your financial ideas suck and thiers is better.

Just my opinion.

As far as "unlawful" discussions are concerned...I think "pump and dump" type of discussion is illegal if you are a board member or affiliated with the direct infrastructure of the business i.e. Reggie gets on here and tells us his stock is going to sky rocket and then it tanks. As far as the general public conversing about a certain stock ...I don't think thats illegal. There are hundreds of Finchial discussion board already in practice. i.e. www.financhialchat.com. My thought behind this discussion board is the fact OSO has a large number of members that are very successful. Maybe they don't touch the market. Maybe they made it big in realestate, Venture Capital etc. etc. This discussion board would be "well-Rounded" . No Politacal B.S. Just "helpful hints".

Sirius sattelite radio (SIRI).
I bought it three or four months ago at $2.08. I sold off some when it hit $8.75 a week ago & I'm still playing with a bunch (7.30 right now).

I am hearing some REALLY good info on "NTN" coming out with alot of cool interactive electronics.
I am planning on buying very soon. It's around $3. right now but with the electronics convention season coming up, I've been told it could be the next sirius

So, tell me about the problem with your lawnmower. I know LOTS of worthless stuff!

Until the financial message boards have sections dedicated to boats........

Anyways, isn't that what the bilge section is for?
