Wanted to Buy
Future IPOs | Played Along | Misc.
Here are some responses from people who tried to buy or expressed interest in buying.
"Am I too late? I guess I need a broker. I only have 1K. What do I do?"
(About ordering the book) "I hadn't heard of this book...dang, actually I feel very dumb...I NEVER HEARD OF THE COMPANY!! No time to lose... how soon is the book expected to release?? And good luck on the IPO!! I'll wait a few days to buy in, I want to give it a few days and perhaps spot a trend, and a good time to buy in."
"Does anyone know how or where to purchase this stock HAFD... neither ETrade nor Schwab show this as a stock today...HELP!"
"I put a buy in this morning and was unable to get any shares. I use Legg Mason and they still have not been able to bring up HAFD. They can't find it anywhere or any information on it. They are saying it's not trading on the open market at this time. How did everyone get his shares?"
"I get a little more foolish each week. Just ask my ex-broker at Prudential! Reading, reading, reading my daily email and feel I've made a lot of progress in my understanding of the market and how to make it work more effectively for me. I'm interested in purchasing some eMeringue pronto. What's the program? I have an ETrade account and I have an account with Merrill Lynch (emphasis on lynch)."
"Would like more information on buying eMeringue. This is not one of your Foolish make believe businesses�is it? In reading through your article, it's hard to believe. I'm a new registered fool and a first time investor. I just read your article about eMeringue.com. I was very interested in it and was planning on buying some of its stock but when I went to Scottrade.com (my online discount broker) they never heard of the stock. Is HAFD its ticker name? Is the IPO available today or some later date? I would very much like to buy some of its stock."
"How is it that this offering gets such rave reviews from you yet it's down 98.86 % right now? I'm a very new Fool and don't really understand everything. I'm amazed at the nature of Internet IPOs to shoot through the roof. Any info you could offer on this one would be appreciated, including purchasing."
"How can someone like myself, just an average Joe who reads the contents of your web site daily, get in on this stock?"
"I've just signed on with the fools, and I must say I am real new to the game of stocks in general. I have an account with Prudential, but at this point I'm really not happy with them. I am interested in this particular stock but I don't want to purchase it from Prudential. What can I do?"
"I just received $5,000 and I would like to buy stock in eMeringue. Please let me know how I can buy stock."
"I'm interested; please send related info. Thanks very much. As an aside, I am glad to see you involved in this aspect of IPOs."
"That sounds like a great company. I am a 21-year old college student in Santa Barbara, California... I love the fool. I am currently reading the Unemotional Investor and Rule Breakers. In these books I have got some great information, including revealing a lot about the full service broker. I love your talk show, and you have a great web site. I am an active investor and you have given more insight than I ever could have hoped. This IPO sounds great. Let me know how I can get in."
"I am an avid reader of the fool.com emails and web site though I rarely participate in the interactive parts. However, when I saw the emeringue.com story I was intrigued and desirous to know how a very small investor like me who just got back some tax money could invest in the company."
"Is it too late to buy the IPO of eMeringue? It's Saturday here and I have just gotten to the Motley Fool site for the past few days. Please advise. I enjoy your mail very much and have purchased all of your books that I know exist."
"Yes, I am intrigued and pleased you are underwriting this. Everybody needs a supporter! How can I get in on the IPO?"
"How do I buy this stock and what is its symbol?"
"Interested in IPO! PLEASE INFORM RE: AVAILABILITY."
"I want to learn more on how to get on this and other IPOs you might offer. Please send info. Isn't the company restricted only to one product: meringues?"
"I read your article on eMeringue this morning over breakfast and am interested in possible taking advantage of the IPO price of this stock. "
"Please send me information on how I can get my hands on a 'piece' of eMeringue (weak attempt at humor!)"
"I have had pretty good results but not as great as yours, but in my case, I can't afford to lose all of my money. Anyway I believe in your abilities and would love to participate in your new IPO."
"I tried to buy the stock HAFD (eMeringue) you are underwriting. My broker could not find the symbol or the company. The symbol would not come up on any of the popular quote companies available???"
"not in Ameritrade system as of 9:34, can't trade!"
"Please send information on how to acquire the ipo on emeringue and also it's symbol."
"Please send info on how to buy shares.. Also send me info on dau trading.."
"I don't have an acount anywhere, but I want to buy stock. How can I do this?"
"can you tell me thatbhow can i purchase ipo from you? thanks."
"AS A MEMBER OF "ALERT" I DON'T KNOW WHY I HAVEN'T HEARD OF YOUR INTENTION TO COME OUT WITH YOUR FIRST IPO eMERINGUEI .HOW CAN I GET INTO THIS ISSUE? PRICE? HOW MANY SHARES? ANY OTHER INFORMATION. THANK YOU."
"My datek show it is not on their data base"
