Today 5/30/07 IFLI (http://finance.yahoo.com/q?s=ifli.ob) dropped 63%, from 3.30 to 1.22.

I'm not sure exactly why this happened but I think the finalization of the UFC / Pride merger in combination with success of UFC 71 might have been the main reason, with the formation of the Showtime/K1/Cage Rage/BoDog fight alliance as another compounding factor, but from what I can tell the stock is a real bargain now.

So as of tomorrow I will own a little chunk of the IFL. Wish me luck!

Vely intellesting. Might need to pick up some myself.

Or run screaming from it.

Maybe it is not the greatest long term investment but I have a feeling this dead cat will bounce tomorrow.

Pick up some while running around screaming? Could be a good compromise.

If you spam enough forums, you may convince people to buy it in hopes it will rebound, and in turn actually make it rebound just by getting people to buy it :)

I use TDameritrade (http://www.tdameritrade.com/). 45 days of free trades if you deposit 2 grand.

Is there anyone who deals with bastards like me who don't want to dump 1 or 2 grand in intitially?

No.

Cheap bastards like us use mutual funds.

I tried the e-trade thing right after 9-11. I invested a grand and made a pretty good return on my investment, except that the quarterly fee that they charge after the first year ate into all my profits. I ended up $50 in the hole even though some of my investments nearly doubled in value.

How does that work? I think you have to put in 1k at least with that one. So they just... In a few months bill you 2.05k or something? I'm missing something here.

Lost my ass. Bought at 1.30 and it was in free fall this morning. Sick of seeing my money vanish I got out at 1.01. Now its at 95 cents.

$145 bucks down the drain. ****!

Mario Sperry is apparently going to get a team there too. I wondered if he has bought in yet?

The other coaches can't be happy about this.
