    Market Watch for the week 10/12/2009

    Check last week's thread to catch up. I am sorry that we had to end the thread for last week. It was a much bigger week and a lot of fun and frustration...not to mention drama. Actually, there is tons of great information there to continue with and unanswered posts.

    Anyway, here is the new thread for the week.

    It's a new week! Lets post our predictions and new stock picks. I don't have any yet, but I am willing to listen. Talk about mindless stuff..I am watching undoubtedly one of the worst movies in existence, "Bio-Dome" (and using the next word quite loosely) "starring" Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin. It has a one star rating. I guess they can't do quarter stars with their software.

    What do you thing will happen with LFBG? I am curious since the date of record is over..did you get in on it or, did you just follow it? I wonder if the software has the appeal needed to be successful..I really don't know. I just thought I would ask your opinion. I have valued your opinions over time. You don't have to be right. I am just looking for something subjective.

    I love that movie - haven't seen it in a long time... the platypus part makes me cry. Now that you know that, never trust any tickers I bring up.

    Speaking of which - I have just been pulling up tickers where I can find them... most stocks broken out, but could consolidate.. usual disclaimer - I haven't "DD'd" any of them. No clue what they do, other than what I can infer from the company name.

    ANTS
    another EVFL called IMJX
    IOVE

    Actually Bill - you can pick em... SNWT hardly pulled back, and just kept going... up 40% or so from where you were talking about it.

    Left Behind Games Arrive In 100 Walmart Houston and Dallas Area Stores
    LFBG05:33 EDTPR Newswire
    MURRIETA, CA, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Left Behind Games Inc. (OTC: LFBG), dba Inspired Media Entertainment, a leading publisher of Christian video games, are now available in select Walmart stores in the Dallas and Houston markets. Games are priced at $29.96 & $19.96 and are located among PC games in Walmart Entertainment departments.

    Christian products have gained popular acceptance in the music and book sections of retailers over recent years. The newest Left Behind and Charlie Church Mouse PC video games are among three titles being piloted in approximately 100 Texas Walmart stores for determining customer interest.

    For many years, Walmart has sold gospel music and both fictional and non-fictional Christian books, including the well-known Left Behind book series which has sold more than 65 million copies. Yet, there are few, if any, moral or Bible-based video game choices for youth and adults alike.

    The demographics in Texas make it an ideal testing ground for Left Behind PC Games where there are over 23,000 churches(1). Texas ranks first in the nation in the number of Evangelical Protestants (over 5 million), second in number of Mainline Protestants (over 1.7 million) and third in number of Catholics(2).

    Troy Lyndon, CEO of Inspired Media says, "The US market for Christian video games could reach $648 Million within the next five years based upon just 3% of video game sales being in the Christian segment." This projection is based upon the prediction by PricewaterhouseCoopers that the sale of video game software will reach $21.6 Billion by 2013 in the US alone.

    In an effort to promote the new arrival of the games at Walmart, Inspired Media has sent out letters of appeal to thousands of Texas-based church pastors and will continue to do so over a 10 week campaign through Christmas, which begins today, October 12th. There are almost 25 million residents in Texas(3), and Christians represent the greater portion of the 49%(2) who claim that they attend church or synagogue once a week(4).

    Inspired Media Entertainment currently publishes six games including Tribulation Forces, the sequel to the original game LEFT BEHIND: Eternal Forces, known as the most widely distributed Christian PC game in history. The Company's LEFT BEHIND branded games is based upon the popular novel series by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins which have sold millions of books in 30 languages worldwide. Inspired Media also offers three games under the Charlie Church Mouse brand, for ages 2-8 and Keys of the Kingdom for all ages.

    The price of gold is up to 1055. It could be another good day for the gold stocks. Keep an eye on GSS and PMU.

    LFBG -

    Morning all. I'll use that word ... "Hope" this is a better week for everyone, especially us hangers on to certain four letter ... abbreviations.

    Bill, was talking with my step-son this weekend about these games, being far better versed and immersed in the whole business of video games. Unfortunately he just got let go last week from an out fit called Game Crazy as they closed his and few other stores.

    His summary? - Soccer moms. They would appeal to them, I think that's code word laced for in the know video-ettes (If that's a term). "No Johnny, you are not getting World of Warcraft, but ..."

    The ratings fall about midway for game play and strategy, just kind of the middle. Not for the hardcore enthusiast obviously.

    The other thing to keep in mind is that these are strictly for PC, not consoles.

    Have a whole backlog of personal thought, from the theology of it all to the company itself. Really a mixed bag for me. I guess my take falls somewhere along the unknown. This could do fairly well or just fall flat. There is a market out there for Christian product for Christians and ... guess I have to let some of this out ... where I often dwelled 'we' had a lot of disdain for thing's that are sacred being recreated in to all sorts of modern gimmickry ... Bible-zenes and Christian death metal if you can believe that ... I digress.

    The books did pretty well, so there is that angle. You still have the Bible-belt, the aforementioned soccer moms ...

    It's slightly ironic in that here you have a straight up, honest, ethical company, something I would easily get behind even if I think their theology is skewered. Was tempted to jump in with the additional shares thing but was also a bit spooked by their financials originally.

    You never know ... I could see this doing really well or just spiking up short term and falling back to about the range it has been running in.

    With my track record ... Please chip away at that boulder sized grain of salt here. I am just musing out loud. It should do quite well as long as I stay out of it
