Well, all of the stocks except for Daktronics Inc. (DAKT) are up a minimum of 300% (ebay) to 700% (UA) from the date I recommended them here.

The reason I bought ebay was expatiated here on 2/23/2009 as follows:

Ebay (EBAY)

I believe EBAY is preposterously cheap. They have had some challenges but Ebay is a cash flow machine that will do well during economic travails. At the current $12.00 stock price, $15 billion market cap, 8 x earnings multiple – I think it is selling for less than what PayPal itself is worth in a rational market. (Ebay owns PayPal of course; so in my mind, you are getting one of these great companies for free with the purchase of a share)."

Yesterday I reiterated my STRONG BUY. on DAKT. It is hilariously undervalued at this price and allows the investor to earn up to 7% in dividends while waiting for the market to come to senses.

I believe the floor is $7.00 (which is nice support based upon assets and cash-flow; with my average price is about $8.34) and the upside I believe is in the billions from here (future market cap).

Here's the link:

Subsequently, instead of the government bailing out the USPS as they did this week - I proposed that they sell it to EBAY or at least have ebay RUN it.

They would have some serious synergies. ebay could make the USPS run efficiently and effectively.
