    Window-Dressing/Q4/Bullish Outlook

    Lets suppose that you are a Mutual Fund manager, among the most stressful jobs on the planet, and that not only your bonus but your job may be on the line. Lets figure that you have 10+ stocks you are thinking about "window-dressing" with on 9/28/07. Wouldn't you talk with your trader about how quickly he could buy a few hundred thousand shares? And if he could do it in an hour or two wouldn't you wait until late in the day and (1) make sure there was no unexpected bad news out there and (2) choose the candidates with a chance to break out to new highs early in the next week (possibly because you bought a few hundred thousand more shares on Monday) with probable 10%-20% potential follow through after the break out? And wouldn't the companies in a dynamic, fast growing new industry be the best candidates to release positive news over the coming weeks. SO WHAT STOCK EXACTLY FITS THIS DESCRIPITION? DID I HEAR SOMEONE OUT THERE SAY VMware??? Right you are, enjoy the rewards and remember, "window-dressing" is real.
