pangloss icon NEW: I haven't looked at the numbers, but I don't believe the company Uber is worth more than Mercedes or Ford. The New York Stock Exchange IPO is valued that high.

jhill icon NEW: It's not whats its worth it's all about the potential. Back when people were scooping up Amazon stock they weren't investing in a company selling books, the were investing in Jeff Bezos and what he could potentially do with Amazon.

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: I still can't believe bottled water is a big thing, yet here we are. Personally, I purchase very little of it. (nm)

jhill icon NEW: I just loved it when Nestle made the paper label on their millions of plastic a little smaller to "help the environment". I still can't figure out how they overcame that one. (nm)

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: I read somewhere that it takes more water to manufacture the plastic bottles than what actually goes into the bottle. Don't know if that's true, but it wouldn't surprise me.

REDrumU icon NEW: For any fundamental/value investor, putting money on potential is like pissing in the wind. I'll always invest based on proper valuation methods because there is always a bargain out there in the market and take my guaranteed wins over speculation. (nm)

REDrumU icon NEW: That means I might miss out on some "hot" stocks. But it also means I won't lose my shirt on tips from cousin Larry. I'll stick with the Ben Graham/Warren Buffet approach which does account for development pipeline, but ignores hype. . (nm)

jhill icon NEW: I wasn't pushing the stock. Just saying why some people have it valued so high. (nm)

Newbomb Turk icon NEW: Personally, I would rather piss away good money at the crap table. At least they bring you "free" drinks. (nm)
