    Greycorner, you chicken out?

    Pulled your short position already that's why you're not here this morning yapping and flapping?

    • Hi ChangChang,

      How's it going? Sorry you took all my wisdom as yappying and flapping. Oh well.

      I was not ever short but I totally respecct GWC for sticking to his short play. I am not any expert but I believe that if a company goes BK, then the short position never needs to be officially closed and so there are not even capital gains taxes to play. Not sure if that is true or not.

      I think I said what I wanted to say. Sorry so few (if anyone) paid attention. I could discuss the future for AFFY because I have seen this scenario play out before. But that shall wait for another day when people may be ready to listen. This is the time for pure day traders. I am a gambler at heart and so I like to observe the action. Thank you.

      • Thank you TGC. I would like to see where you next post. I never like to see people lose money, especially novice retail investors. That was one of the main reasons I posted on the board. Based on my healthcare background, I was just about ivory soap sure AFFY was going down. I did not want to see retail hold the AFFY bag as it were. I agree it was amusing to post on this board, but I never like to see the havoc Wall Street plays on people's financial well being. I hope to enjoy your posts on other boards. Best wishes to you.

      • So if you don't own share long/short then why are you here? What's your agenda with AFFY. Trying to save retail investors? You know that won't fly right? Working for HF? Only you and god knows so let it be.

        Well I just bought some at 1.22 after watching on the sideline for a few days.

        You brought up some good points on your posts but at this point don't you think this is a good gamble? I think so, down 100% or up 500% to 1000% better than any casino out there don't you think?

        Keep in mind AFFY said they may be selling the company or BK so we're still at 50/50 do or die.
