Thx. Decision on December 31, 2014. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 19, 05:51

Will it involve lots of rum and Trailer Park Boys reruns? Your decision, I mean :) {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 19, 20:39

Rum - for sure. Julian, Ricky & Bubbles may not get Invites. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 19, 21:21

Nice Job! I remember when Grory did this (hit $1B+) years ago 2 show players it WAS possible...I can'r recall if we could short then or not! {nm}   Flash on Dec 19, 08:17

Thx. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 19, 16:43

Grory got lazy lately. Someone will take over grory lead in 3 years from now {nm}   mike255 on Dec 19, 13:29

Two stock crash in 2 days. Wow a huge drop like real stock market. {nm}   mike255 on Dec 18, 16:56

The Family Business Fund Jr is ready for cashing out! Took longer than I thought (had some family stuff going on earlier in the year) {nm}   Family Business Fund on Dec 18, 08:57

Congratulations {nm}   oneman on Dec 18, 09:22

GRATS!! {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 18, 12:15

Hmmm, what should I do for the next fund? {nm}   eyescovered on Dec 18, 15:58

The Kid's Fund 6   RazorHawk on Dec 19, 06:20

Sounds good! {nm}   eyescovered on Dec 19, 08:01

Look at some of the toys you get to play with:   RazorHawk on Dec 19, 09:27

Haha, bring it on! {nm}   eyescovered on Dec 19, 17:10

Well done! {nm}   Awards Fund on Dec 18, 16:05

RazorHawk, Thank you for issuing and managing AFRAM 6 Movie Fund. You are the best! {nm}   kibitzer on Dec 18, 07:41

Man, oh man, I wish I could lend out my excess cash.   ndmaster on Dec 17, 07:25

take a peek...   RazorHawk on Dec 17, 09:48

Ugh {nm}   ndmaster on Dec 17, 09:59

Geeze Razor. I have Portis envy. {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 17, 17:51

If I remember correctly Razor believes in keeping a very clean port with few investments. {nm}   Dorfman on Dec 18, 06:08

I heard his port looks bigger because it's so clean {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 18, 09:07

+1 {nm}   Dorfman on Dec 18, 10:26

You should invest daily ipo daily and penny stocks {nm}   mike255 on Dec 17, 10:29

I do! {nm}   ndmaster on Dec 17, 13:47

Classic Cash earning "game"   BackRowBrett on Dec 17, 01:14

it is completely random - law of averages = ~about 3 times a month   RazorHawk on Dec 17, 04:03

Average = 4.345 Wins / Month Based on 365 Days / 12 / 7 (1 in 7 Chance of Winning).   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 17, 04:38

In a probability perfect world {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 17, 11:09

I agree... your mathmatical formula seems correct... there are an average of 4.345 weeks per month in a year! {nm}   RazorHawk on Dec 17, 13:44

I tracked it for a month once sticking with the same poster position. My results: about 1 win per week. {nm}   TheEradicator on Dec 17, 15:21

I picked the 7th poster everyday for 1 month once and didn't win once {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 17, 15:52

I won 5 times in one week, but I've only won 2 times in the last 30 days. It's random by should average out to once a week in the long term   MattW on Dec 17, 18:39

I allways pick the poster with the most red in it... Win 8 times a month {nm}   JMT-NL on Dec 17, 23:35

I just picked the most red poster   BackRowBrett on Dec 18, 00:37

lol...   JMT-NL on Dec 18, 05:43

Anyone know when it was that Grory cracked H$20 Billion? {nm}   DTravel on Dec 16, 12:47

it was around May (year I don't know) according to this post...   tealfan on Dec 16, 13:07

May 29, 2014. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 16, 13:41

Thanks for the Starbonds Advice.    MitchC on Dec 16, 12:25

Thanks   MitchC on Dec 16, 04:35

After Adjust, the Price of the StarBonds is Frozen until 12:00 AM PST. {nm}   RotoHockeyYTD2014 on Dec 16, 04:40

Time Of Day Star Bonds Adjust?   MitchC on Dec 16, 03:20

Go to the tabs at the top of the screen and select NEWS & EVENTS...   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 03:58

yea   jaymel on Dec 16, 00:01

Shout out to JDolphin for calling HGAM3 delist within $1.88M of actual! {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 18:52

Thanks - where was the contest the one time I'm so close. :). The delist multiplier was 2.27 vs 2.26 for HGAM2 {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 15, 22:01

I know right? You certainly deserve it with such an accurate prediction! {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 04:00

Yeah good call on that JDolphin. Thanks for helping me make money. :) {nm}   Dorfman on Dec 16, 10:53

Wow no tracking out.. and people on boards talkinb about hobbit doing less than 70ow yet it's climbed over 12 pts in last 2 days... {nm}   Dorfman on Dec 15, 08:45

Personally, I think Warner Bros. is trying to milk Hobbit as much as they can... I'm thinking they've run their course... {nm}   Flash on Dec 15, 08:49

Well yeah! What are they gonna do next? The Silmarillion? (link)   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 11:35

There's enough material in it he might be able to do 72 movies. If he had the rights. ;) {nm}   DTravel on Dec 15, 11:38

It's not the last we've heard of Tolkien. A British film, titled Tolkien & Lewis is in the works...   Lucky_Muppet on Dec 15, 11:49

Lucky Muppet, message inside   DTravel on Dec 15, 19:49

Haha - thanks DT!   Lucky_Muppet on Dec 16, 09:13

Oh gawd - remember before LOTR when we had Hobbit stock...   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 12:15

I'm thinking there's going to be a lot of disappointed people come Sunday.   mantleclinic on Dec 15, 09:01

It's Pump and Dump stock market rally. {nm}   mike255 on Dec 15, 09:36

Hobbit opens on Wed and gets 2 extra days of box office. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 15, 09:57

I'm more Bearish on this one, myself.   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 12:07

10M?! LOTR3 did 51 Wed/Thu + 72M Fri-Sun. LOTR2 did $40M + $62M. LOTR1 did $28 + $47M. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 15, 14:44

Yes they did. Hobbit opened to $84.5M 3-day, 2 opened to $73.5M 3-day. However...   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 16:58

It's not about being a bear or a bull, it's about whether your ratio is logical or just random darts. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 09:08

Oh - and Pro Box Office has the long-range forecast at $68M opening, and there hasn't   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 17:02

65 - 3 day. (68 is old info) {nm}   Awards Fund on Dec 15, 17:47

Then a similar 60% ratio to your $62 Fri-Sun would be $37M Wed-Thu = $204. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 15, 18:01

Imma say $17M Wed/Thu + $49M Fri-Sun. And that's taking into consideration the 3/3 bump.    Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 18:18

Your ratio is still not consistent with the past. A $49M weekend would mean ~$30M weekdays. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 09:07

No, the trend was an $11M decline in weeklies per installment. {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 11:07

huh? You mean a $11M increase. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 11:14

Damn! Read it backwards. {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 11:27

no I didn't, actually, I just said weeklies instead of installments...   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 12:09

That's WEEKEND. A 11% decline would mean $62M weekend with ~$37M. Now I'm just repeating myself. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 12:40

Actually, average 37% of total 5-day in weekday numbers.   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 12:12

No, I'm refering to Wed-Thu/Fri-Sun ratio. So LOTR3 was 70%; LOTR2 65%; LOTR1 60%. Average is actually 65%. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 12:43

you are saying xx% of the weekend numbers (65% of what the weekend did). I am saying   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 13:51

Reverse this: Weekdays = (weekend/.35 ((or .37))   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 13:54

Screw it - I'm just making it more confusing.   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 15:01

The last LOTR was 11 yrs ago - not sure that's a good comparision for today's market - see my post below about Wed openers {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 15, 22:08

They are absolutely comparable and gives us the best possible weekday to weekend ratios. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 09:05

I think the last 2 Hobbit movies are better comparisons than the LOTR films. {nm}   Dorfman on Dec 16, 10:48

Agreed, of course.    Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 16, 11:12

The last 2 Hobbits didn't open on Wed. {nm}   Antibody on Dec 16, 11:12

Is this the way you compare mid-week openers with Friday openers?   MattW on Dec 14, 23:58

I'd look at other Wed openers - per BOM the only movies to have a wknd higher than 70 mil were summer dates and 2nd LOTR (72,6) {nm}   JDolphin on Dec 15, 00:49

For Wed openers - Only 2 non-summer movies in the last 10 years have had an opening weekend above 50 mil (Frozen, King Kong) (link)   JDolphin on Dec 15, 00:58

This! {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 13:35

I am Legend and Avatar both had ~$77M with December openings {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 19:33

^^^^ But they were not Wed openers* {nm}   Chateau_du_Mal_Voisin on Dec 15, 19:34

Question..    MitchC on Dec 14, 16:24

Traders do that all the time. You just have to pay closer attention to when it turns, And be sure to account for commission - on the high    JDolphin on Dec 14, 16:51

I appreciate the advice.    MitchC on Dec 14, 16:57

It all depends on how much time you spend on HSX - the stock could could go back up (or down) if you aren't paying attention. Many players    JDolphin on Dec 14, 16:58

It depends on why you bought it   ndmaster on Dec 14, 19:39

Thanks   MitchC on Dec 14, 16:20

yea....   jaymel on Dec 14, 14:26

StarBonds For Tuesday-How Does It work?   MitchC on Dec 14, 12:07

You have to make the trades after the adjust {nm}   lapuckfan on Dec 14, 12:29

Starbonds don't cash out. They adjust to the new value. If you then no longer want them, you must sell/cover them off. {nm}   PVL Admin on Dec 14, 13:48
