As Bill Clinton might say, I feel your pain. I sold even lower than you did. I did not see the possibility of another refinancing boom since mortgage rates were already so low and so many people were underwater. The lesson I learned was not to underestimate Ben Bernanke and the Fed.
Yes the Starbucks would be suitable. It would be very convenient for me.
I am not worried about security as much as you seem to be. We could use your system or you can just tell me what time you want to meet. I will do it either way. Or, I will give you my email address and you can just send me an email.
My shoulder made an almost magical recovery and most of the pain just went away. Then I saw my orthopedist Friday and he told me that the MRI showed a small tear in the rotator cuff. Then he said that if I don't have pain it is probably better not to operate. So unless it gets worse again, I think I am in the clear.
I don't know about Dell. I have bought a small position in Continental Materials (CUO).
I am also toying with the idea of buying Southwest Airlines (LUV) but I have not done it yet. I have owned both of these names before at various times and always made money on them.
I am ready to arrange a meeting with you. How do you want to do it? Should I come to your place or do you want to come to my place or meet at a neutral site. Let me know if you want my email address or phone number. I guess that you still have my home address since you sent fudge to me. Thanks.
I would be very happy to meet with you. However, I am having some medical problems right now. The worst one is a very sore shoulder that is probably a torn rotater cuff. I had an MRI done yesterday and will see the doctor next week. It will probably require surgery.
I will let you know when I am better and we can arrange a meeting.
Do you read the proxy statements too? Reading the sections about exective compansation makes me sick! They have to be the greediest group of people in the history of the world.
If only! I leaked my shares out real gradual-like.
That does sound too big to be real, unless for some reason some buyer and seller arranged to trade on an exchange. Which makes no sense to me, but I don't move in those circles.
Thanks for the link. But I still don't understand. Very small trades during the day, then two very large trades just as the market closes and the total still doesn't agree with the volume reported on Yahoo. I will let it pass. Those last two trades of about 120,000 were probably done by megabucks astral.
Yahoo reports that the volume of ITIC shares traded on Friday was 159,962. Was most of that your trade?
I wonder if that was a bogus figure. It doesn't show up as a spike on the daily chart. Could it possibly trade that much without having more impact on the stock price?
There will be no rotten fruit from me. I sold my ITIC earlier at a lower price (woe is me). I guess I was the "original" traitor.
I think you picked a pretty good time to sell. The market has been overly enthusiastic with many companies related to housing. Furniture, home building, building material retailers and title insurers have all done very well. I think there will be a recovery in housing, but I don't think it will be very dynamic and not like it was before. The housing mania will not return for a long time.
