Hey Zero. Welcome to IHub! I think I would more accurately describe RB as being heckled, insulted & called names. I felt is was pretty childish so methinks being called "Bashers" would be a compliment to those two. lol! I'm wondering if Tedco is still warning people not to listen to traders after the short attack a few weeks ago, where most investors here on IHub were not only comforted in knowing what was going on, but made a bundle on my direction by buying on the bounce. That was a blast eh fellas & ladies?
I can only speak of my experiences & what I've seen happen & I've never seen shareholder have a say in an acquisition of a penny stock. Could you imagine STWA sending out 800 secret ballots indicating "Shhhhsh, now keep this quiet ok? " lol! I think if this happens it would be just like I've seen before where the PR comes out before the bell & the stock opens at $40, or I've seen it happen right before closing the bell & the bid & ask instantly adjust.
As for profit being discussed I'm thinking maybe a lot of readers are not crunching numbers or maybe have never had large sums of money before. Let's say Joe, hard core STWA investor accumulated 100K of ZERO, then HAL picked ZERO up. Your shares are worth $4.5M on a $35K investment. Thats silly. It happens, but it's silly especially when a 10% ROI is considered killer nowadays. So add in the dividends of $12,500 every quarter and how much money does one actually need?
You'll have a minimum of $4.5M because HAL is low right now and make approx $3k a month on dividends. My guess is the AOT could skyrocket Hal into one of the richest & most powerful companies in the world, 10 fold of what they are now & we could see $100+ with HAL with maybe a $.50 dividend? The dividend is much more likely in our lifetime with HAL than ZeRO methinks.
As for everyone dreaming of huge Kingships and riches beyond your wildest dreams, again I'm not trying to burst any bubbles but I've been what some might call super-wealthy & I've been homeless. Strait out, I was much happier homeless. Life had much more flavor and it gets tiring being referred to as "That rich A-hole that lives in that huge house". At least in retrospect it was for me.
In my life lessons, I found big money buys misery much easier and faster than it buys happiness. I also learned wanting was almost always more satisfying than having. In fact, it's my thought after experiencing both sides, the only way money can buy happiness is if it's used to buy freedom in secret, and no one knows you have it.
I'm OK at trading & make a living supporting my family of five with 2 in college, but if ZERO hit & I cashed out with $100M no one, not even my wife of 25 years would ever know how much. I would change nothing except for more family vacations and a secret Santa might send a 2 week, fully paid vacation, with 1st class air to my 4 sisters, 15 nieces & nephews, their spouses & kids every Christmas as a family reunion until the the end of time. That would be in my will & no one would ever know who was Santa.
