Linda,

I'll add to the anomaly. As of the close, freerealtime.com shows 41 trades with total volume of 21,400 shares. Since the last trade was 100 shares, I don't see how freerealtime could have shown 40 trades and volume of 20,500 at 3:05 ET when you posted your message. The last trade needed to be 900 shares to add up to 21,400.

PC Quote shows 41 trades and volume of 21,400 shares. Signal shows 41 trades and volume of 21,400 shares. BWAC is correct that some services add pre-open trades and others don't. This is the most likely reason for the discrepancy that you noted although I thought quote.com added pre-open trades.

Another possibility is that you might be receiving delayed quotes even though you think they are real time. If you meet me on IRC or AOL one day, we can compare a few symbols in real time to see if your quotes are working properly. Send me a PM if you want to try it.

Dan

Hi, Dan. I believe that quote.com has been broken most of the time lately and that's that. If they don't fix it soon I must find another quote service. After the bell they pretty much caught up on volume and are showing it as 21,400, but they haven't caught up on ticks, showing 30 instead of 41.

I saw the freerealtime disparity, too. I was hoping they grabbed my remaining shares but nope. I sold 600 today and was left with 900. They're going to drag it out.

I'll be happy to meet you in real time. I don't have IRC but have been meaning to download it for a century. Do you have the url to find the software. I believe there is Mac software.

the bid and ask on vlsi dropped during the trading day today. does that mean that PHG stopped buying on the open market? it looks like I'll be stuck with some shares till they are forced to buy up the remaining shares out there. wonder when that will be....

It will about two weeks after the tender offer is finalized. You will be paid $ 21 for each share.

What is the finalization date of the tender offer? July 1 or is it after that? Anyway I suppose it won't be a long wait and I will hold for that time.

What will happen to un-tendered shares... or is that what you were talking about? Was it a bad idea not to tender my shares?

You will get $21 even if you didn't tender your shares. Philips is buying everything at $ 21!

DIVX plug pulled - This might have affected VLSI before the buyout. Not totally unexpected... mercurycenter.com

Hi Jim, does this mean that DVD now temporarily "owns" the market? It would be nice to know that the player we buy will be usable as long as the VCR's we have now. I just debated having one cleaned and "tuned up" or just chucking it out and buying into the DVD stuff. Had the antique cleaned. (I'm cheap!)

Best regards, Tom

OT - DVDs are gaining ground, and recordable DVDs soon. Meanwhile VCRs will continue for a long time. Had DVD for over a year but still use my S-VHS VCRs more often. Really hot right now - MP3 music players: mercurycenter.com
