Welcome to IWETHEY!

New My how it changes your perspecitive . . .
. . when you own Microsoft stock (not my fault). When it goes down I think "Arrrgggggg!" When it goes up I think "Yaaaaay!".

Fortunately it's a very small part of my portfolio and Inez (my stock broker) agrees it's going nowhere and is first up for being sold, but it's still a bit disconcerting.

New Well, as of today, I'm in the same boat.
My wife gets [link|http://www.thestreet.com/|Jim Cramer's] "Action Alerts Plus" and he says based on PC sales, XBox, Vista, etc. MSFT stock has awakened and is going to move 20-25% in the next couple quarters. Despite my objections, she bought some MSFT. What can I say? You learn by doing and so she's doing.

NOTE: the link is to a related site. The Action Alerts Plus site itself is a pay site.

New buying or selling of stock is concience neutral
much different than buying and selling the companies product.

"the reason people dont buy conspiracy theories is that they think conspiracy means everyone is on the same program. Thats not how it works. Everybody has a different program. They just all want the same guy dead. Socrates was a gadfy, but I bet he took time out to screw somebodies wife" Gus Vitelli

New My wife used that argument as well.
Companies and their stock can live amazingly independent lives.

Take the example of [link|http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=BIDU&d=t|Baidu], a Chinese Google-like internet stock that went public recently at $27/share. It shot up like a rocket (to as much as 153.98.share) on wild expectation of its future. It's down to $99.19 as I write this. It's the internet bubble all over again. David Farber on CNBC called the company Baidu-doo. :) Well, maybe that's because he's not allowed to own stocks.

But, it's clear that Baidu got shafted on the IPO. It could have raised much more cash.
