we're riding hopes that the merger is more likely -- it gets approved and SWC will make 6 bucks -- course the price of Pd and Pt helps, too

Well, now let's watch it fall now.
You might want to take some profits
Because I ponied up and re-entered
35 cents higher than where I sold the last time.
Sheesh!

I'm going to set a stop near the lows of today.
i don't feel at all comfortable re-entering here
But ..
And I probably should have just taken it off my page of quotes until the miners have a pull back.
all my others are up nicely today and my shorts are kicking butt, so I just don't know

I re-entered @ 4.12 after selling at 3.96 -- sometimes it makes sense to re-enter at a higher price -- I expected a loger battle at 4.00. It's a bet on the merger being approved and the fact that Pd got way oversold.

DENVER, Jun 16, 2003 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- STILLWATER MINING
COMPANY (NYSE: SWC) announced that its stockholders approved the proposed

Company, said, "The Board of Directors is pleased that the shareholders approved
the agreement and welcomes the Norilsk Nickel investment in light of the current
economic situation and low PGM prices. With this transaction, we will be able to
reduce the Company's debt and use the additional capital to improve our
operations."

I'd like to think so.
I just set my stop right above yesterday's close
one for good measure and all that jive.

sure is something to see these miners/POG rising while tech bubble reinflates.
my money says gold wins out eventually.
but I was sort of hoping for a real buying opt in miners over the summer
maybe still get it
