    I make a sock puppet and bash as retardedly as I can. :)

    More specifically, all caps posts, be sure to misspell almost everything, including..no, especially the company's name itself! Personally attack other posters, other longs. Name drop other short sellers on the board in posts, make it seem like we are buddies, etc.

    Get into fake argument with my regular ID, where I pwn my sock puppet. The more people who play, the more fun it can be. (Works great to get the sock puppet to make outlandish claims, and other longs usually chime in with links to refute, easy way to see other peoples due diligence in a stock to me)

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not moving the stock price here I know that, but trolling Yahoo Finance gives me a wonderful braingasm.

    To be safe I would pass. In the event of them beating earnings I'd say there's limited gain, maybe 5% upside, but on the event of an earnings miss easily 8-10% on the downside.

    Apparently Cramer seems to think that AAPL will tank after earnings, and will create a buying opportunity for the next few days. It's Cramer though, take that however you will, I personally think he's a piece of shit

    Though about selling my shares but I don't think they will miss. And if they do the iPad 3 is coming out soon and that will bring the price back up. Wanted to sell my bank stocks yesterday, couldn't pull the trigger. Selling today for sure

    10 minutes of trading and 4M shares of ACT have changed hands, wow. Thanks Slopho, you da man.

    And whoever recommended GPXM to me, thanks for that too. Looks like a buyer stepped in yesterday on that one.
