Greece seeking exit out of Euro.
Might be a "surprise" for some, but this was quite obvious to anybody with half a brain cell.haha! yes, i thought it may of came out like that. But I suppose the news is an 'actualization' of this now constant and venerable constant sentiment. it is supposedly what caused the Euro dip chasing into the bell.

Funny what a tenuous grasp the 3 panel has on Bloomberg regarding the issue right now. From the guy who is talking about how the FB IPO was priced exactly right (ummm... sure buddy; I guess that would be the case if Morgan Stanley didn't pump 2 billion+ into the stock alone on IPO day on the open market; ergo, I guess you could call that 'leaving money on the table!'), to the chica who who portends 'should we not have an open market' which totally negates the ordering limit issues which have already been avidly discussed here. perhaps the Bloomberg dingbats need a einhorn powerpoint slide (or 3) on the matter.
FB ipo is a good case of fundamental analysis. The stock was over valued. All it took was a glitch in trading for most ipo subscribers to realize the emperor has no clothes. Run for exit ensued when people realized the underwriters were supporting the price. Buy at the open and dump for a quick $5 gain seemed easy except when there wasn't a gain. Trading on the market's whims and short term irrationality, such as the" guaranteed fake run up" can only work if you are good at it and have full day devoted to this kind of stuff. For small investors who can't afford trading all day fundamental analysis is the only way to go (on top of indexing) .

dag... hard to go into HUGE short on HPQ when they are -5%. i expect a little bit of a jump from cover calls and those more optimistic in close. That puts a kink on exit strategy w/ 'contained losses'. Hmm...

it does suck. just had some funds over there I need to move, but don't want to miss out on shorting AAPL right now. thinking i might finally move them over memorial day weekend.
Dell is a disaster. I beta test for Dell and I have yet to see a product in the last 2 or so years that is interesting and that I'd want to buy. They're still trying to push 17" laptops with cheap cases on people. No one on the consumer side wants much of what they make and they don't seem to understand this. I suppose what's valuable is their enterprise business, but I have no idea how much that is worth.
