No problems here... Meh, reality will be what it is. Thankfully you can make money in markets betting on your understanding of reality as opposed to trying to convince a populous that doesn't want to see it.

There are lots of IPOs going on right now with Web 2.0 companies.

Also, people are looking for alternatives to the money market. There are some tax advantages to direct investment in a start up.

We'll see how it all plays out.

Lots of overvalued IPOs waiting to sucker and fleece people yeah...
...

We'll see .. my LNKD,ZIP, and P put options are playing out just nicely...
All of these companies are 'worth something' but certainly not worth what price they are at. I could just marvel at double rainbows but it's never really made me money.

Yep.. Next up is HP w/ around 5,000 .. Helps to have an ear to the ground. This is not a shock though.. From insiders, the company has been ripped apart and exploited from within due to its short cited hiring and acquisition practices....

Once a gem of the valley.... now a behemoth circling the drain. Got Short off last earnings report .. Going to cash in going into the next earnings report.. I have a feeling the market is going to fade the news (layoffs) to the downside one more time ... another $1 or so is going to be shaved off the share price before its all over.

Oh wait, that was published during the Bush Administration.
Did it account for all 57 states?

All the Old Tech firms are still in bad economy mode. You bet there will be more layoffs.

"Jobless recovery" - how about "negative jobs recovery?"

The sad thing is Obama through out the term "jobless recovery" ... but what makes it worse is people actually accepted it ... hook, line and sinker

Corrupted politicians like Obama count on voting idiots.
