    Big spikes in price, big volume, way above 50 and 200 MA and an RSI of 88. This fuck is gonna crash or breakout further.

    Yeah it's been funny. The company misses by a mile, but the stock runs on the asset sale announcement (meaning they will likely survive beyond 2012) so all the shorts head for the exit. I know a couple of funds that have now had SHLD as their biggest winner and biggest loser within the past 3 months.

    Super pissed that I cashed out too early on this position. I sold at 36.12 early in the morning, only to see that it shot back up to the mid 37s throughout the day..

    I could have doubled my profits... :fu:

    If the only thing the IPad 3 has is 4G, shareholders should be worried.

    lol I think better resolution, maybe a boost in processor. to an apple fanatic they'll wait in line for the new one. IMO though, most of the people who purchased the ipad 2 won't upgrade.


    On a totally unrelated note. I HAD NO IDEA HOW MUCH POLICE OFFICERS WERE PAID.

    I'm just thinking that not a lot of retail customers currently pay for 3G service, business people sure, but not your regular joe. I don't think that many will pay for 4G either.

    Do you want me to get you some cop money.
