Closing Comments

I made a lot of moves, late in the day. Surprisingly, late in the day, I covered much of my LAZ short, mainly due to convoluted feelings. "The Fly" doesn't like to root for his stocks to go up and down-- at the same time.

The trade was a loser. I should have covered it a few days ago. Unfortunately, I let hubris get in the way of good money management--always a bad idea.

Also, at the end of the day, I bought some RIMM, despite having a cost basis in the teens. As you know, the company is due to report earnings on Thursday. From what I hear, this will be RIMM's best quarter ever.

In short, as much as I disdain frothiness in stocks I do not own, this market is going higher. It's a fucking runaway freight train, with a nuclear bomb on board.

Get out of the way.

As oil continues to slide, I like BWLD even more.

Finally, iiG never goes down, ever.

"Finally, iiG never goes down, ever."

Is that because it is a "high-browed" firm and never gets its eyebrows punched off?
 
highest volume in 3 months for iiG as well...

Fly

Get yo shayuh of biryons and biryons of photovortaic glowth and gambring ploceeds!
 
Jake--

you certainly are not lacking for talent. lol.
 
you could just about teach CSL (Chinese as a Second Language)
 
RIMM is in India now.....of course it will be punching off mustaches. Long in the 30's. Always a step behind.....
 
IFN has been punching long, flowing mustaches off recently. It has lagged FXI and needs to do some catch up work.

(FXI is up about 97 % YTD vs. IFN up 28%.)
 
Gracious admission. Maybe we need to feature the "sting o' pride" scene from Pulp Fiction as a reminder to us all.

You still got that SRS, btw?
 
Great pick in RIMM. I think people are still addicted to their crackberrys despite AAPL's addition to the field. It's only a matter of time before the original generation of blackberrys go out of commission and those'll make for added sales. Extra point for the back-off that RIMM had today, makes it an even cheaper buy.
 
BWLD because oil is going down? Are we talking canola, peanut or crude?
