You haven't been around since September last year. Did you follow the board? Barcoo is a regular poster here and did not fall out of the sky, hyping one stock like techdata/draft. Always take into account whom the tip comes from and if the source has credibility, start your own DD.

My apologies if I appeared to tar Barcoo with the same brsh as techdata/draft - that wasn't my intention! I was commenting only on the text of the message itself, not on the poster (I have in fact been perusing several boards on and off for the last year; I don't read every message, so I wouldn't necessarily be familiar with everyone's track record.)

Barcoo's original message said only this: CAG Cape Range Wireless
Check out their announcements for the last 3 weeks.Especially the last 2 days.
I bought at 36 cents, currently 58 cents, don't plan on selling yet. This looks good long term.

Nothing in it tells me specifically what might make CAG a good long term bet - that's all I was saying. Compare this with the level of detail in, say, demiller1's recent posting on Normandy.

Anyway, I meant no slur on Barcoo. As several have pointed out, we still need to do our own DD. Hope CAG works out for you eveline!

Fool on...
