You put all your money into a stock because you read this board and everyone had something positive to say about this stock?

Wow, you ARE the joke of the century. Didn't college teach you not to believe in everything you read or hear...Let me guess, you are tall, blonde, beautiful, and has a brain size of a peanut. You are the prime example of why some people should NOT be investing at all.

Lady, a little research on your own won't hurt. Start with a balance sheet, income statement, P/E ratio... those are some good things to know before you put $150,000 into the market. Your mistake is not in investing in EBAY, actually, EBAY is a great company if they get their back end system working correctly...which I hope they are going to do soon. They are one of the few internet companies that actually MAKES $$$$. Your mistake is not doing any research before you put the money into the market.

Good luck next time.
