Anyone know? And anyone know what their stock code thing is?
I don't think they are. I'm pretty sure Frogboy (Brad Wardell) is the sole owner, but don't quote me on that.
They're a C Class Corperation.
Stardock is privately owned (mostly by Brad).
Darn... i wanted to invest...
Thanks for the info though!
im sure you could invest for the right price. got a couple mil laying around?
As Kryo stated, it is mostly owned by Brad, with the balance being owned by current and a few past employees.
Heh... Well I've only got like 10k that I want to invest so I don't think that make any special accomadations for me.
Could always just give it to them, same result minus your own desire for profit.
you could always buy 200 copies of Object Desktop.
Lol... Yeah... No thanks. 10k is my current savings... I have no plans to give it away...
Damn...there goes my sugestion...
On the plus side, not being a public company is a huge advantage in terms of what you (the owner) can do. Shareholders can be a RPITA, especially if they know little to nothing of the company they invest in.
Of course everything is relative and dependent on your age and expenses but from a personal perspective I wouldn't feel comfortable with less than $100K liquid cash in this current economic environment. The best you'll get today on your liquid assets is about a percent and a half but so be it. You need to be able to afford being unemployed for at least a year these days. For any spare cash laying around over and above all this then feel free to invest, but be sure of your ROI. That's return *of* investment, far more important than, return *on* investment.
That is entirely unrealistic, I mean it is a great ideal, but some people invest in things so they can have money to do the things you mentioned ie. buy a car/home and cant afford to have multiple years salaries in the bank.
IIRC Mumble makes pretty good money, so his version of comfortable is vastly different than the norm. Really, if I had 100k saved I could take the next four years off and not notice
Most experts recommend 3-4 months worth of income in liquid savings (actual savings account or something like 30 day CDs) before you even consider investing anything anywhere else. The best advice anyone can give you is to pay off any debts as soon as possible - getting out from under a 6% interest rate is a far better ROE than almost any investment you can thing of.
If I had a $100K saved and was careful with the money, I could go a decade doing nothing.
I believe this, however, should be the first thing done. Enough to tide you over a month or so if you were to suddenly lose your job.
I just turned 23, still living at home (I pay rent I'm not a bum), recently out of college, got my debts all paid off and never carry a balance on my credit card (although I use it for most things safer than cash or debit IMO) , no car payment, and 10k isn't all I have saved just all I have saved that I'm willing to invest. That's still leaving a few months worth of liquid assets.
Back in 2001 I used my 10K for a down payment my first home... even with the housing market as terrible as today I would still make a sweet profit if needing to sell. The first 2months are the hardest and the next 4months are still worrying times... just stay focused on making every house payment.
I never enjoyed paying rent and it feels so good knowing every house payment is an investment instead of making some landlord wealthy. Not sure if where you live is a good time for house hunting... depends on your area and job security.
If Stardock is interested in extra money then it could easily allow only 10% of the total shares to be traded. At least that's what I heard UPS has done.
the probably with listed companies is that the legal fillings is so large sometimes it is just better just not to have it publicly traded rather let it be privately owned
