Auric,

Added this am to my short position (from 61). Hardest thing I ever did, but I'm feeling a lot better now.

Market up, PVN down 2 3/8.

Dr. Seuss,

I'm testing the waters on the PVN short again. I think that now that Prudential got this puppy back up in the mid 70s we are going to see some selling now and next week.

You better believe it.

I just want to say a word about PVN.

Mr. Pink brought this to our attention. Yes, he said to short it with impunity and made
other comments. Yes it took off shortly after that....and now it's coming down. He also
said that you should take some profits off the table a week ago and I wished I did
more of that then. You don't hear anyone bitching that the stock they covered dropped
further and they could have made more money if Mr. Pink had only told them to stay
short.

For all of you out there that are attacking Mr. Pink for his call on PVN, or making
obnoxious comments about those that are short it and hurting.....grow up. Muhlrunny
and all those other morons get off on being a contrarian. While that has a place when
done intelligently, it's clear that these guys are running a few fries short of a Happy
Meal.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that stocks go up and down. If someone can even tell
me that a stock is going to be volatile, I say thank you. Good traders make money up
and down and shouldn't need to be told when to short and when to go long.

If you're a beginner, don't jump in the market with stocks that are volatile, you'll get
burned. Or do so on paper only. See how you end up before you use your own
money.

If your in to dumping salt into peoples wounds only to stop feeling so badly about
yourself for a while, get the hell out of here. Third grade is meeting over on the Yahoo
threads.

Your Pinkness:

I must confess that I may have royally screwed up. Bought BMCS on the possibly erroneous presumption that Prudential and Goldman read the wrong earnings release. Are Financial Shenanigans indeed in progress?

Muhney,

When I was listening to CNBC yesterday, talking about the rate cut, they indicated that LTCManagement would be forced to liquidate some of their positions(at a loss)because of the cut. Presumably they were short bonds. I know the rate drop weakens the dollar and provides add'l liquidity in the financial system but aren't a number of these hedge funds on the wrong side of this?

It is interesting that brokerages and banks such as BT were up a lot but are falling hard today. BT went from $52 to $60 yesterday intraday, and today it is back at $52.

Something smells fishy about this market...
