Quick question,
Is borders group(the bookstore) worth buying shares in they are trading at $1.32 a share but seem to maybe get some life back in it?? also same with barnes and nobles but not the same price.

Is borders worth the cop in the long run im just beginning to trade in the stock market while im in college (19) and graduate possibly with BA (21) any help would be great since you guy's seem to have alot of knowledge about stocks
If you're looking at fundamentals I would say no because of everything with online books on the iPad, Kindle, etc..and just being able to read or buy stuff online from places like Amazon, Ebay, etc. I think stores like Borders and Barnes & Noble will see a decline in the future.

However, if you're looking at Borders from a technical stand point. Then, it's nearing its 1 year lows, so it may be a good buy if it falls some more.

But other than that, I probably wouldn't invest in them short or long term. Just my 2 cents.

Word alright, may purchase though for long term down the road when it hits below a dollar (if possible) for long term cuz you never knew they could be transformed into an itunes like store and be profitable or combine with another company who knews but shoot appreciate the response man

Borders looks like a horrible investment after looking at the s&p report. Revenue has been down every year since 2007. They have 500+ stores they arent breaking into the e-book market i would a.ssume. They are just another s**tty bookstore. Have you been to a book store recently? Customers rarely buy s**t they just sit there for hours and read the book. Fundamentally & logically it is a terrible investment but because they have 500+ stores they might be a potential target to be bought out. Even still i doubt it because why would anyone want to buy 500 book stores when they aren't turning a profit.

I suggest reading the S&P report on borders if you are serious about investing it in or other dd.

Anyone think this is major turn around? Im eyeing the commodities & railroads mainly, they are gonna get crushed if this is a leg down. CLF/X/CNI/CSX/FCX/TCK & always TZA. Small caps always get wrecked in bear market.

Don't invest in Borders... they are headquartered across the street from my job. my dads consulting firm actually was asked to write a new business plan for them or ways to make the company more competitive in the new media technology... needless to say they dont have the money to expand and when they try they havent done it correctly.


How do you feel about GM maybe going public, most people i have talked to believe that they will go bankrup soon because the haven't been profitable long enough, any of you guys gonna buy GM stock, personally I would by Ford stock first.

I think the GM ipo will flop. I heard on tv they want to set the price at 100$ or sumthing absurd. This is a terrible ipo market i wouldnt be suprised if the gm ipo gets cancelled.

Last 2 big(news) ipos were CBOE & Telsa

CBOE doing pretty horrible, tsla doing alright considering the market has been bad last 2 months.

I would have to agree Ford is a better choice & im actually thinking about buying shares if it comes back to the 9.90-10.00 level.

I've got some extra cash I might want to invest... I gotta start reading up more on stocks. Ford Fiesta is Europes popular car, just released in the US, i have a feeling it might give Ford the push it needs

Had to bump this to shamefully boast about my first play.

I opened up a thinkorswim account 9 days ago, put in 3 grand just to "practice" with so to speak. My friend who trades for a living has put me on to a lot, but I'm still learning. So for a test, I put in for the Sept 260 Call on AAPL at 2.17 for 5 books.

I sold all 5 today at 6.00 even. Nearly tripled my money in 9 days. I've got alot more to learn, but that was pretty dope, to see 1100 dollars turn into 3k in such a short period.

I think I'm in love

Ya aapl has made a nice move, i was lookin at the 250 1 contract for 3.65 but i was too cheap and held my bid at 3.55 all day. This was the trading session before there conference so more of a gamble play. Altho there is like a 99% chance even if i had bought that 250 @ 3.65 theres no way i would have held this long.
