Microsoft - <b>When to short </b>

Emcee:  Columbo Type:  Unmoderated
In dedication to Definition #2

Here's a home for all investors who are or thinking about shorting
MSFT. Remember spreading false information is illegal. Shorting a
stock is not illegal. It is part of what makes the market. Who
created the rally last Tuesday? Who creates the bottom?

For those who think it is un-American to short, is it un-American to
make money?

Warning! Microsoft has a monopoly in the Operating System market.
It is recommended to short only short term and on a technical basis.
