    Mix it up. Get some blue chippies in there and dividend payers. I jumped in on MS a week ago, good bet IMO.


    I looooove saying I told you so


    Last bear in the woods you are


    Yo, I have not had 2 months this good in YEARS. AAPL is crushing it - 1/2 my dough in that lovely piece of goodness. Up 60% on BAC. Doubled up on Commerzbank in a month. STX, out the park. RBS, killing it. Have some Jan '13 $7 options in STD well in the money now. On and on. Took a punt on AIBYY (allied irish banks) at yesterdays close and am already up 20% just today. Life is gooood.

    Check out the IPO on Brightcove. They use the Akami back end and seem to have a great customer base. Note, I have not checked it out in the least, just know some companies that use it and love the functionality.

    I was over at a local seafood restaurant the other day and I heard a couple of drunk women talking about Human Genome Sciences (HGSI). Now these women probably worked at HGSI as I live not too far away from both HGSI and MedImmune, but there sounded pretty bullish on the stock. From what I researched though they're actually laying people off. Now that could mean streamlining or they could be in trouble. I don't think they're in trouble.

    I never believe any of the BS. What I think will happen short term is that ACTC will finish the first cohort of patients. I think with the higher doses we'll see better results and of course no tumors or problems. Now after the first cohort is completed I think there is a good chance of them scrapping Phase II and move straight to Phase III. This is all IMO, but the new members of the BOD make that possibility very strong.

    Edit: When I say I don't believe any of that BS, I mean I don't think there is a true accurate short count out there. If the squeeze starts I'll be happy, but I'm only focused on the science.....which still works at the lowest dosage.

    Yeah not sure if you can really get a true short count on an OTC. If .139 is the trigger, might make it a moot point anyway, doubt we'll hit that soon.

    I don't think it would need that much to jump. Let's just finish the first cohort then reevaluate.

    Hah, profit taking in GLUU certainly didn't last long this morning. Back in the green. Another 1.25 and I break even.

    Fucking CS earning. Special extra dividend though.

    Double fuck you to CSCO. Been holding that piece of shit for years after an idiot buy at 28$. Now great earning and no movement. Fuck you CSCO.

    Can you believe AAPL up another 18$ today? No ceiling on this pup.

    Get the feeling were at the bottom with ACTC, its been stewing at .10 for a few days now. Thoughts?

    I'd like to see what AAPL gets into next. I think they're too far behind the curve on TV's. ACTC's base better be .10, if it breaks .10 we will see .08. Like I said before I think we'll all be happy by years end.

    Probably the opposite of anything I pick :p

    My mom after Lunar new year was saying I should stay on the sideline this year, because of something to do with the year of the dragon and how it affects me. now i'm cursed :fu:

    :D
