12,000 STOCKS, 100's of FUNDS, you pick silver streaming co with no costs except 40 workers and a phone bill to short. I don't doubt the bob and weave or the fiscal cliff issue--why in all that is sane you'd pick this co is a bit problematic.
We really can't know for sure what's going to happen.
I would have shares before, and the ability to buy on both sides of the event.
Save some dry powder for a possible spike down if we go over the cliff but don't be without shares in case we don't and it flies.
