Some Chinese proverb like:
He who over exerts himself produces only shame and undesired results. He who lets nature take its course delights in the destination.
Admittedly, far too much lining up showing there’s more to this than has transpired, but the ever present do-gooders solidified my maintaining my holdings.
I can’t say that rings any bells. What I like about Schwab is when I call the guy says “this is xxx in Omaha.” It makes me chuckle every time so I may call today just to thank them for not only holding them for me but also being sure to transfer them from TDA what that merger happened recently.
You are aware the person attempting to match wits with you lists ‘IAM Patent 1000: The World’s Leading Patent Professionals’ as a career achievement, aren’t you? Since it’s safe to assume he was aware this was granted I’d like to extend appreciation from all shareholders who weren’t aware of this. Thank you, good Sir.
Morning fellow shareholder,
Man, I had a great 6 day weekend. Once the balance of this transaction closes I suspect I’ll be taking a few more 6 day weekends for the rest of my life. I really appreciate my brokerage holding onto my shares at no cost to me. Bated breath in celebration and not fear is a wonderful art to master. Have a great week fellow shareholders.
The path of least resistance is to check in here from time to time and let the brokerage hold onto my shares. It costs me $0 or energy for my brokerage to keep them. It would actually cost me time and energy to dispose of them. I suspect those of us who make up the vast majority of shares held by very few people will also choose the path of least resistance. Would have been nice to hear there would be some happiness from non-shareholders in the event we do get paid. To date we are out 100%. In any event, owning more than most insiders is a done deal and it will stay that way until they are removed from the accounts of all shareholders.
There has been a consistent discourse here for half a decade. There are us shareholders and then those with no shares but a persistent interest in the psychology of us holders reaching acceptance. So I ask this, after all these years do any of the crew seeking to bear witness to our acceptance have any feeling of hope that shareholders will prevail and receive redemption? Or do you wish we have indeed lost it all? The youngsters would say that ‘haters’ exist but I’m optimistic those who have chosen to spar with us don’t see themselves simply as stalwarts of righteousness.
Something drastic will need to change. Even with the consistent group of a few carrying on about how massive this deal will be they seem to be only spending about $15 a day buying more shares. Those who want out will need to be absorbed by a factor of 10. Break even as the goal and dirt cheap pps means massive sustained volume will be needed.
Enjoyable experience only for shareholders.
Imagine each share in your account was in paper form, one sheet per share. The average printer ream has 500 sheets and is 2” thick. Divide your total shares by 500 to figure out how many boxes, or pallets, you would need to hold them. We all know there would be a failure to deliver if possession was requested in this fashion. Before you let that dream die think of each sheet as $1, $5, $10 or even $20 bills. As far as the 1 for 1 I’ll let your imagine guide you. Don’t go borrowing anything you can’t pay back yet because that could have catastrophic consequences. Enjoy your shares while we await the liquidity event in this transaction.
It’s got to be a boiler room, right? 8 hour shift work. Can’t leave until the person relieving you arrives and debriefs - continuity of business is remarkably important, of course. Regurgitate scripted statements and masquerade as far more accomplished than reality would support.
I’m as eager as anyone to see this move steadily North. That said, total volume x HOD doesn’t even total $35k so let’s hope the leak isn’t ownership of a car dealership for a single weekend day where more than $35k profit is made. If anything leaks volume will approach 1 billion within 24 hours.
