    After peaking around $19 / share, palm's share prices plummeted to $8.50!!! This following mixed opinions of palm's prospects following the CTIA meeting apparently. Wow. Shareholders lost more than 50% of their investment in this company this week. They are doing worse than countrywide financial and the homebuilder stocks, and THAT is saying a lot!!!

    And just for the salt on the wound, who from the inside planned ahead and sold:

    The Elevation Partners deal went through yesterday. Shareholders at the close of business yesterday get the $9 cash dividend, which is why the share price dropped. So over the past week, those who held onto the stock did quite well.

    With Ed Clownigan out and Josh R. in, this is the time to buy.

    Remember Apple in 2001... $9 per share. Look at Apple now!

    I did not have the balls to buy then.

    lol, why is everyone reading this as their share's "plummeted" when, as mentioned above, they gave all shareholders $9 back on every share...

    This has been planned for quite some time.

    Man, you guys need to read a little closer! lol

    Yeah i read that looking at stocks.. I keep a watchful eye on Palm Stock but I dont have any. Funny you mention Countrywide.. Do you work for them? Looking at their stock its gone down over the last few months. Palm stock went down 50% in 1 day.

    anyone here own Palm stock? if so, would you think it to be a good idea to pick up some when the price is down?

    Is Palm bound to rebound? Or has it really a matter of time before it croaks?

    Wait for the 800w... that will be a very good indication of the company moving forward. The Centro is now the sperhead of Treos, and I have many doubts it will make a dent in the space where they are positioning it (entry level smartphone?)
    Ode to the Treo Pro: you had to look so good, you had to be HTC in disguise...

    Jon Rubinstein or Ed Colligan. That previous poster was correct that Ed is still CEO but Jon is Executive Chairman. He is the guy brought in by the Elevation Partners Interest and I can guarantee that if Jon says, "jump" that Ed will be asking, "how high?"

    If you think about what the masses are going to do next, they are going to integrate all their handheld crap into one gizmo. Either an Iphone or a palm or something else.

    Palm has the development community behind them. I don't believe there is anywhere near the number of apps for crackberry or Iphone. This will be key as the adoption of smartphones among the masses ramps up.

    Just my opinion but I feel that the rough patches Palm has had correlate with Ed's rise to CEO. Ed does not come across very well. He is just there.

    Well, I don't consider iPhone a fair comparison on this basis yet because the SDK isn't out -- and I still think it was a huge mistake not to launch it *with* the device, but time will tell. But even without an SDK, developers WANT to develop for the iPhone. So I'm really curious to see what happens when the official SDK becomes available.

    Palm only has such a strong suite of apps because FrankenGarnet has been with us for so long. Some would still say that PalmOS has more apps than WM, but even if it's true the gap has seriously closed. Palm has just kept developers hanging on the clothesline for too long. Give them a good alternative and they will go. Heck, I've seen some hardcore PalmOS developers jump ship on the mere promise of an alternative, let alone living breathing one.

    At 9 bucks a share it makes it cheap enough to buy some of it now.

    So being $9 per share, with the $9.00 dividend, should the stock be considered being worth $18 per share comparing apples to apples?

    Meaning, the stock isnt doing much worse than its high of $19.50 per share.

    & why did it pay such a high dividend?

    They had a cash hoard and were not doing anything useful with the money, so they gave it back to the shareholders.

    Seemingy Palm thought it a better investment to pay dividend to shareholders than to re-invest in new products. This seems the right move as Palm proved its inability to innovate several times now.

    Just curious, what the hell happened back in early 2001? On Nov 3rd 2000 Palm stock was at $669, and by April it was at $61. Since then it has continued to hover in the $10-50 range, but even in April 2003 it hit $4.54!!!!!

    What the hell is the deal with Palm stock, talk about volatile! I'm glad I don't have anything this crazy.
