Brent, I did a price comparison of the CDs which are being featured on
K-tel's front page (supposedly their best deals!). Here's what I came
up with. The lowest prices are bolded.

Title KTEL AMZN CDNW NTKI
------------------------------------------------------------
N Sync 15.28 12.58 12.58 13.88

Enter the Dru 16.18 12.58 12.58 12.88

These are
Special Times 16.18 12.58 12.58 13.88

Club Mix 99 15.99 14.99 12.99 15.49

Supposed Former

Who is going to buy from KTEL?

Oh, I admit I was lucky.

More like divine intervention, actually.

Tom, internet sales are questionable as it is. But, one thing is for certain, price competitiveness is the key. And, as you pointed out, KTEL ain't got that either!

Who would buy a CD from KTEL?, who would loan money to KTEL?, who would go long in KTEL now?

Junk, junk, junk, we're headed back to $4 a share (which is probably overpriced) lol.

see you there!

Brentsky,

Maybe you're right about going back to the single digits. The question is, who's going to last longer, Crown Books or Amazon? Is cutting prices really the only solution? If life was that simple, hamburgers would be eating people. It'd be a mistake to give up the due diligence you've done on KTEL. Maybe sideline this one but technically, management hasn't even started to fight.

William, on the internet, price IS everything. Remember, we're talking about companies selling the exact same thing. Why would I want to pay more for the same CD from KTEL, when Amazon.com is cheaper and better known.

Furthermore, which management are you talking about. The old president who left KTEL secretly and with no announcement from KTEL. Sounds more like management is in complete disaray to me.

Brentsky,

Yeah, but once you enter your password and pin to get onto the Playboy site, you don't really feel like doing a lot of comparison shopping. Circuit City used to design their parking lots to hard to get into so once people parked, they didn't feel like leaving without buying. Shrewd.

Brent, the field gets more crowded everyday. Kmart is joining the pact to sell music online.

You can get your online music here as well....not bad prices either... members.spree.com ...KTEL will fall IMO, although not as fast as some think due to the high short interest....

Update on price comparison. Kmart offers a single price of $13.99 for all titles on the chart (post # 2657). Kmart beats out Ktel handily on price.
