    I GOT ME SOME ATM PUTZ

    DD - While I thoroughly enjoy watching you try to work your "Pygmalion magic" on our challenged friend, alas, I am afraid that you are doomed to disappointment.

    But I digress; 1) My $69 sell order was day only, so no sell level right now, 2) I'm not sure when CYT 3rd qtr earnings will be released, but it would be fun, I think, to have the contest encompass that event, given the volatility that usually accompanies it. Perhaps we could extend to 2 weeks post-earnings release?

    • ***9/19/07 update removing excapnal one-time sell order and new contest preview below***

      bynsell is the only one holding stock, directdad, excapnal have buy orders for $62 and $64 respectively.

      (contest ends Friday, October 19 at market close. Lots of action this first week, only 5 weeks to go!)

      On Wednesday 9/19/07 the price hit $70, with the market still in session:

      Mr. B:
      $6,500 in cash
      (no plans to buy)

      directdad: 100*$67.00=
      $6700 in cash; waiting to buy
      Buy at $62.00, sell at $67.00

      bynsell: 100*$70.00 (or current price)=
      $7000 (or 100*current price) in CYT stock
      Buy at $64.00, sell at $71.00

      excapnal: 100*$69.00=
      $6900 in cash; waiting to buy
      buy at $64.00, no sell order

      Please post any discrepancies, I'll review and repair. You can change your buy and sell prices at any time.

      ***************************************************************************************************************************Coming in October***

      ***From October 8 to November 16***
      pick 100 shares (at the market close price on October 5) or the equivalent in dollars.
      Pick sell and or buy orders to trade stock.
      You have to be all-in or all-out.


      ***Bragging rights for anyone that picks the closest max. price during the period. (Guesses have to be in even dollars.)

      ***Bragging rights for anyone that picks the lowest price during the period. (Guesses have to be in even dollars.)

      Example: the price at market close on October 5 is $70.05

      exampleinvestor chooses: money, buy at $64, sell at $70.
      max: $75, min: $62

      exampleinvestor would have $7005 at the start of the contest, would buy 109.4 stocks if the price dropped to $64 and would get $ 7662 if the price the rose to $70.

      You can change the buy or sell orders at any time.

      High and low bragging rights go to whoever is closest to the high (and the low) for the 10/8 to 11/19 period based on the pre-10/8/07 guess.
