Subject:  Am I a 'fool'- instead of a 'Fool'? Date:  9/12/1999  3:37 PM
Author:  5839Lane Number:  35 of 312

I bought VIA.B on 9/7/99 - Before Researching through TMF. (my research was done through other Co.s'like 'Smith&Barney etc.)--

Oh Goodness How I Have MISSED 'THE FOOL'!!!!

Today I came 'home to TMF' and began reading these messages (beginning #27 - fartherest date I wanted to go back).
Everything I am reading tells me I didn't buy what I thought I bought.

Questions please for anyone with Answers:
1 - Is 'VIA.B' Not Also 'VIA'?
2 - I bght. 'VIA.B' at $48.25 during & Because Of Viacom's purchase of CBS (& losing already) was I a 'fool'? :(
3 - Was I a 'fool' for ignoring 'The Motley Fool' for the last couple of months? (Thank you but I will answer this one - :) :) - Answer: 'YES!'
4 - IF 'VIA.B' is not also 'VIA' - should I sell and buy 'VIA' instead?
5 - Or sell and forget them both? :)

I suppose that is all the Questions I have at this point - but I sure want to thank all the Fools (message boards 27 thru 34) and Especially TMFNico for his/her excerpt and connections to the Rulebreaker by David Gardner 'Consolidate to Dominate'. I thank you also David for your Info.

HELP 'Fools' I need your HELP!

Glad to be back
