You're right, message boards get ugly, no big deal. I'm not cloud dreamer though, just FYI. I only have one ID, and I don't one-star people's posts AT ALL.
So I'll keep telling you that VMW is way overpriced -- regardless of what comes out of earnings today -- and if you don't understand that -- like PauI_m_33 et al don't understand much of anything -- then you can't be helped. I'm holding Feb 85 puts that I've made 500% on in the last week. I sold some and I'm letting the rest ride through earnings.
Keep hyping this pig without any regard for valuation at all. Really, I mean it. But to all the longs except PauI, I really hope you make a lot of money -- because even if my puts are worthless tomorrow, I've taken my profits.
