|Ray ! and the Amati Gang|
I agree "Agonizing Stock positions" holding Amati stock was similar to a Tour Bus trip to _______ (fill in with your favorite boaring trip) but the group people on the bus, sure made the trip worth while!
The best time was from my initial purchase in Feb, 96 until SuperComm in May, $5 - $33 , where I sold 3/4 of my positions in WSTL, PAIR and Amati after talking with a unnamed Professor at Stanford, after he received a Fellow award from the IEEE. As I helped him carry stuff from Hall A to Hall C on his way to give a presentation on the Internet and Multimedia Expectations (future Broadband) He left a few thoughts burned in to memory, Nothing on Amati itself, but .... that when a stock appreciates, one should at least sell enough to get ones initial investment back, and a short discussion on emerging Tech and initial hype etc..
The second best time, was Supercomm 97 the following year, when a small group of the Amati Gang met in Las Vegas and had a lot of fun. Yes there we were making history over a Web Cam from the SuperComm convention floor waving to the Amati Investors, and making jokes which they could not hear... Then there was this Guy in Sexy shorts standing among us...
It's getting close to the 10 Year anniversary of the Thread !
Perhaps a we can get the gang back here for a short one month discussion during December through New Years 2006 ?
Wishing All the Best to Ray and Giovani Mateo,
