    I'd totally spaced out their troubles a few months ago but I just heard a sound bite that their stock is now in the mid $20's. Wasn't the stock trading for pennies a share just a few months ago? I guess it's yet another opportunity missed =(

    Fear not,

    The former shareholders of K mart got nothing. The current shares are newly isssued shares that most likely were given to bondholders after bankruptcy.

    The big miss of this past year would be Amazon.com It was under 10 bucks a share for a long time.

    Are you ever right. I put a few stocks on my list of stocks to watch on September 11ish, 2001.

    Amazon was then $7.09 a share. Closed today at $49.34.
    Yahoo was $9.98 a share, close today at $41.57.

    At that time either of those companies was a big risk.

    20/20 Hindsight.

    AMZN is still high risk and overpriced. Still, my little pet stock has trounced AMZN in performance over the past year(or two or five) and its still undervalued. So I don't fell like I've missed any overrated dot.com's. Still, it'll be interesting to watch Google's IPO.

    I read google is going to "auction off" their initial shares and cut out the traditional roadshow and investment banker tripe?

    Is this true>?
