    I really wonder how this is going to affect Zoom's stock price. Certain people say it's positive because this takeover costed too much money, others say this is a huge blow to Zoom's plans to expand into other software areas.

    I bought the stock at $300 dollar so I'm a bit worried that it will slide further. On the other hand, last quarter they had $1 billion of revenue for the first time, and remote working isn't going away anymore, so I believe investors are over-reacting, but what else is new on Wall Street. :rolleyes:

    I'm not sure if this is a good move, but it might generate some more revenue. And Pfizer's new anti-COVID pill dealt a huge blow to Zoom's stockprice. :rolleyes:

    Zoom might pay you $25 as part of a class-action settlement
    A lot of people may be eligible to receive some kind of payment

    LOL, here is a small update, but as expected, Zoom's stock price did indeed fall from $300 dollar to $180 dollar for no good reason, which proves that the stock market is based on almost nothing. So now I have a loss of about 5000 euro. Wall Street isn't for the faint hearted, that's for sure. But hey, you win some, you lose some, right? :thumbd:
