I would just like to share with all of you my target of 200 on BKS- I arrive at this based on the fact that AMZN is worth 400 - because BKS actually makes money, they are of course not worth as much. I assume a 50% penalty is adequate, when factoring in Mgmt's abysmal lack of foresight in not losing money- thus I arrive at my 200 dollar figure.

My other stock targets are as follows-
100 on PAIR
400 on iom (money loser=good)
100 on Cien
100 on psft
200 on hal
hey I like round numbers- just call me Abby the unknown

I had to penalize them for making money- if they could just figure out how to lose more money I would raise my targets.

Now that you've got the hang of the market, do we drop this flagrantly money-making BKS in favor of playing some AMZN and AOL? --L

I want to know whether current BKS shareholders will receive
shares in the IPO also; someone please answer; my broker
doesn't know.
It wouldn't be fair for present owners in the company to
have to pay extra to keep a position in the internet side
of the business.

Barnes & Noble gets AOL rewards.>BKS Shareholders will get indirect benefits I think

Check SEC filing for details of the IPO-BKS and
edgar-online.com

CONTROL BY PRINCIPAL STOCKHOLDERS



Upon the consummation of the Offering, Barnes & Noble, which will
beneficially own all of the issued and outstanding Class B Common Stock and approximately % of the outstanding Membership Units, and Bertelsmann, which will beneficially own all of the issued and outstanding Class C Common Stock and approximately % of the outstanding Membership Units, will, collectively, beneficially own all of the High Vote Stock and approximately % of the
outstanding Membership Units which will, following the closing of the Offering, represent approximately % of the outstanding Common Stock (approximately % if the Underwriter's over-allotment option is exercised in full) and approximately % of the voting power of the Common Stock (approximately % if the Underwriter's over-allotment option is exercised in full).Pursuant to the Amended Charter, the holders of the High Vote Stock will have the right to directly elect six of the Company's nine directors, and will control the election of the remaining three directors as well. Accordingly,
although Barnes & Noble and Bertelsmann will each own only a small percentage of the outstanding Common Stock, they will collectively control the Company through their ownership of the High Vote Stock. This control may continue in the future through the High Vote Stock even if Barnes & Noble and Bertelsmann, through their ownership of Common Stock and Membership Units, own a minority economic interest in the Company's business. See "Management--Governance Documents,"
"Corporate History of Recapitalization" and "Description of Capital Stock and Membership Units."
