Who in the world would buy Aeropostale or Office Depot when they are closing stores and losing sales. In 5 to 10 years they will be gone along with your money

Or, buy a burger and fries with that five dollars, change it into a turd and get a return for your money.

If you are taking your investment advise from MSN's internet page then just send me $3 of that $5 and you will be way ahead.

As soon as they get enough people to buy and drive the price up, the ones pushing the syock will sell and make a fortune and you will be left with the bag.

Why don't they put a date on the article. Office Depot is up 10% in the last week.

Office Depot's problem is that they don't use the pricing power they have with suppliers because of their specialization and size and then pass savings on to consumers. That is, they pretty much charge full retail for everything they have. Why would I go there instead of WalMart, unless I need some special office product Wally, Target, Sears, etc. don't have? Great concept, rotten (and greedy) execution.

The only one that is a good risk is ASX. It's only negative criteria is cash flow but everything else is good.

The other four are all fair to poor risks and operating in the RED consecutively for many months. That only one that has not been operating in the RED is GPT but they've been in the yellow for cash flow for many months. HERO being the least favorable of them all, in fact HERO has nothing favorable about it, it is recommended to hold it with MARKETEDGE being the only entity recommending to buy. It is up from yesterday's closing by 7.5 cents.

I have Investtools and compared each one. I paid over $500 just to initially sign up for the sight and pay $39/mo, but it gives you the criteria and training to help you control your losses.

The electronic guy has a market cap of 8.99 BILL-yun, but the stock is at 5+, which means they have well over a billion shares outstanding. No thanx.

This is probably the worst investment advice I have ever heard. Just take your money to Vegas, and bet at the tables. You'll probably stand a better chance of winning, and if you lose, at least you'll have some fun. Who writes this crap!

If there are any traders here I want to let you in on a great system for trading I've found for the oil futures. Check out Gold Trading Academy, I went from a beginner to profitable in my first month. Oil trading is the best way better than the Forex or stocks. Google Gold Trading Academy to learn more.

Give to the homeless............you'll receive more on your "return".

Office Depot is closing stores because they bought Office max and their stores are too close to each other, so they are eliminating the store of their choice and keeping one open. This will cut down the neighboring competition. In general, I do all my shopping on the internet, so do not see these type of stores lasting forever.
