Rudy! Rudy! Rudy!


August 30, 2008 by esarsea

Most of you are probably familiar with the 1993 movie Rudy, a film about Daniel E. “Rudy” Ruettinger. It’s an inspirational story about Rudy’s desire to play college football for Notre Dame despite lacking the money and grades to attend the prestigious college – and not having the physical size necessary to play top level collegiate football. For those of you who aren’t familiar with Rudy’s story and the movie, a plot review is available on Wikipedia.

I recently learned that Daniel “Rudy” Ruettinger has entered the sport beverage industry with the introduction of Rudy the sports drink. Rudy compares very favorably to it’s competitiors such as Gatorade, Powerade, and Vitamin Water. Despite some early setbacks (which have never detered him before), Daniel is committed to the success of this venture. I did some checking, and found that the stock for Daniel’s company (symbol RUNU) was selling for $0.0024. I opened an account with the online brokerage OptionsXpress and purchased 90,000 shares for $216 plus a $14.95 brokerage fee for a total of $230.95.

I’m not a expert in the stock market or with Penny Stocks but the math  is easy.  If Rudy returns to it’s March 2008 price of $1.12 per share, my $230.95 investment will be worth $100,800.00. I’m planning to invest more in Rudy. It’s speculative and risky, but I like to gamble.

If Daniel brings the same level of dedication and never-say-quit determinaton to this venture that he did to Notre Dame football, I believe it’s a winning proposition. Recent headlines for the company on AOL’s Money and Finance page indicate the company is moving in the right direction.

In my own self-interest, I’ll be chanting Rudy, Rudy, Rudy!

    I picked up another 60,000 shares this morning for $164.95 which included a $14.95 commision fee. Brings me up to 150,000 shares.

    There is a promotion being offered by OptionXpress, the online brokerage service I use. OptionXpress will put $100 in my account for every person I refer to them who signs up, funds their account and executes a trade…and they will also put $100 in your account! I believe the minimum deposit required for you to receive the $100 bonus is $500. At today’s price, that $100 would buy you 40,000 shares of Rudy!

    If you’re interested, send me an email from the “Contact” page on this blog and I’ll send you an invitation (I must send you the invite from their webpage for you to be eligible for the $100 bonus).

    Trading was recently suspended due to missing financials from past years. Rudy will begin trading again under new symbol RUDN after a 4:1 reverse stock split.

    Because of the new symbol, some of the links in my original post will not work properly now.
