Next time, get your story straight. At first you stated that you shorted 300 shares, and said nothing about the other 300 that you added to your tall tale later. That is not something you would have left out in the first place because it would have meant that you took twice as much money from the skippy longs. If you are going to come here and lie about stuff, you need to at least keep your bullsht straight.
just tried shorting 150 more on top of the 1000, no more shares to short.......oh well
Canceled Sell Short 150 VMW Limit 68.75 -- 04/28/08 13:40:22 04/28/08

Order Canceled: We're sorry, but this stock is not available to sell short.
Another perspective is that a lot of companies would beg for this growth rate. Stock prices reflect future growth and the future looks good. Microsoft? The only way they win is if they buy VMW (won't happen). Their own product is not impressing anyone. Overreation to earnings? No... rather, a reaction to a turn-around situation. Market saturation ? Don't think so but that's just my opinion.
Enjoy your short position. As always, I hope you will make a profit as well.
Still waiting for a reply....
ok, let's assume for a moment that you are lucid and in control of all your facilities.
Would you please explain your outlook with a minor degree of intellect and forethought. I am not saying you a wrong. Rather, am asking if you have a basis for your opinion.
AMERITRADE HAS SOME LEFT, and so does fidelity......I missed out on netflix because short shares ran out, but I made sure to get my short on with this CRAP. Short 600 shares should be a nice 3k profit by next week
