    Nope, got greedy.

    Was waiting for the bounce on the announcement to break even, even had a sell order in, but it failed to exec because of 5 cents. Should have sold and taken a few $ loss, now I am in a slog and will have to day trade my way out or just wait.

    red across the board for me. not too worried as the stocks i hold were bought mostly on fundamentals... great buying ops, wish i had a little more cash.

    Looks like GLUU bought Deer Hunter and there's movement in after hours.

    Should we expect a pop tomorrow morning--or is this sort of a "meh" acquisition?

    I thought it was meh until I did a little research and saw how big the Deer Hunter franchise is. Also, GLUU is paying royalties for the franchise until Sept. 2015, so this isn't costing us any cash or shares.

    When we hit profitability this year, it will be with 0 debt and around 30 million cash in the bank.

    edit: Whatever it takes to get us closing above 5 a share will make me happy, should be blastoff after that IMO.

    Hate to say yeah buy it only to see it immediately go down for ya, that's how it works with me. I bought last year at a little over 5 only to watch it fall to 1.80 LOL. If you can stomach volatility go for it, if not, avoid.

    If you like to trade though, seems to be a great stock for that.

    I'm tempted to run a backtest on GLUU just to see what we would have made compared to you javyn. :p

    What year did you buy in?

    Goddam... I'm rolling with this trade already. Bought at 29 last week.

    Picked up some IBM today on the pullback.

    Also, can someone recommend some high-volatility stocks with decent-to-high liquidity that have been around since at least the beginning of 2004?

    Anything that meets those criteria would be appreciated.

    Or in general. Either works.
