A while back I wrote about the increase in 4L .COM offers I was seeing and it sounds like I’m not alone. Just about everyone I know who owns 4L .COMs has reported a steady increase in offers, albeit far off their Q4 high.
That being said, it’s fair to say there are some investors out there buying up just about every 4L .COM they can get their hands on. They’re going long on 4L .COM at a time when many investors are liquidating – it will turn out to be either genius or foolish, only time will tell.
Today a broker posted on popular domain name forum NamePros and said he is buying domain names for a buyer with a massive budget, he set the following prices and recommended buying in batches of 10+ names:
Non chips – 200 – 400
Chips – 1600 – 1900
You can read the full thread here. The broker also said that the buyer is okay buying up to 1,000 domain names per transaction. That means whoever it is has a pretty strong feeling that these prices represent the wholesale price of a 4L .COM now, or close to it. It also means they are betting years from now these are going to be worth a whole lot more.
When everyone is liquidating and some are buying, it does make you scratch your head a bit. What do you think? Is this one foolish investor, or is now a time where fear causes people to sell an asset that is going to grow in value over time?
Only time will tell, but I’d like to hear from you. Comment and let your voice be heard!
