been there, hold on to your long position and be patient for longer than a week and you won't have to tell your wife bad news but celebrate your gains from investing in VMW. You might also try RIMM, NYX, NVDA, POT, TRA. Read the any board for the past week first and figure out who's done their HW (look for these posters) and who has not. Then see if you agree with their analysis and if so, invest and then stick to your guns making SURE to take some profits along the way. good luck with your investments.
