    I've never pulled the trigger on the employee stock purchase program,yet. But I'm hearing from others that the stock price right now is at an all-time low. Anyone have thoughts on the program in general? Pro's-Con's...? Is this a better then normal time to start getting in on it?

    What?!?!?!?! All time low? It's near it's all time HIGH.

    I put $50 a week in. There are certainly better and worse things to do with your money.

    UPS is coming off it's all time high.
    Buy high and sell low is not a good strategy.

    5% discount is not a good enough reason to buy the stock of the company you work for.
    UPS P/E ratio is around 21 .... really should be in 16 -18 range which indicates it is a bit overpriced.

    Listen to what this man says. If you want to invest money, invest it in your 401k. It's a much better value.

    Perhaps you should stick to (mis)diagnosing concussions-----our stock is just shy of our all time high.

    I think that buying in a ROTH IRA would be better than taking the 5% discount. You may be able to buy a little more now, but in the end you will have more through the Roth. No taxes on the dividends will cover that 5% pretty quickly. It is close to the high so it will probably do down a bit more but timing the market has make paupers out of many people. Just save money and buy stock at regular intervals and not worry about it. All the money I put into the market is extra money, and don't worry about down turns.

    You know, the more of your posts I read the more you sound just like my center manager. Always throwing (mis)informed daggers at people when they're simply asking for advice. Apparently I was given bad stock information, that's why I thought it would be a great idea to ask the more experienced peeps here at the BrownCafe. Your reply contained no useful information. "our stock is just shy of our all time high." Did you not read the first reply to this post? Are you playing the repeater game? Or do you just like people to see your p***y(cat)?

    Got it open just before noon. First completed stop was around 1. Was instructed to EC everything north of 60(45 stops). So today should be another spectacular day!

    Check out the retirement section on here. There are a few investment threads over there that have some pretty good advice.

    Thank you sir. I will do that. I'm not looking to pull the trigger immediately, just don't want to miss out on any good investment opportunities that may be available.

    You are quite welcome.

    We can't tell Upstate much of anything. I just ignore some of his posts since they are a bit mean on people. He does depart some wisdom which is helpful, so I don't ignore everything. You'll get used to him. Most active members here have had a spat with him at one time or another. Take the good with the bad

    You got beat up a lot while in school didn't you. You come on here to bully most people around and I think you should get a spanking for that. 407 is right, you just don't give a damn what you say to people at all. You've :censored2: off most everyone on this site at least once I suppose. It starts with you; you must hate yourself therefore you make everyone around here miserable with your responses. You really do need help.

    ps sorry for sidetracking the thread

    Insecurity masks itself by lashing out and putting people down. It makes them feel better about themselves.

    5% off price on last day of closing day of quarter not worth with a 2year hold not worth it.
