Listen to ZipRealty's Nov. 16, 2006 Conference Call: http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix.zhtml?p=irol-eventDetails&c=180169&eventID=1408539

The new CEO introduces himself after being “pumped” in the introduction by a UBS Conference leader. He also describes the industry, his involvement, ZipRealty's recent past and market conditions of residential real estate.

Check it out and tell me if I was “pumping” or sharing a discovery with my fellow Fools. But I thinking “pumping” is OK. Note on my CAPS that I've said I own the stocks I have listed. I put in a buy order for 1,500 shares at $7.48 a while back; only 1,136 went through, but I haven't cancelled the partial execution.

So, I have a dog in this hunt. If that makes me a “pumper”, that's OK. I like to put down my investment rationale as a sanity check for the future. The word is usually associated with “pump and dump” – where some shill has been hired to put together a slick brochure and pitch it to amateurs.

By the way, UBS doesn't associate with Pump and Dumpers: They're serious folks.

Tell me what you think after listening to the whole CC and read some of their stuff. At $8.00, the stock is still not overpriced by any stretch. So I can sincerely recommend that you do some investigation.

Dave
