    Dippy hasn't been willng to make a call as long as I have been on the board

    Since November when I first started posting on this board Irish has not been willing to make any real calls in advance and back in November he was calling for the end of the compant.

    The closest thing to a call in advance I have seen out of him is when he aske me how my buy in the low .90s was working for me.

    It worked fine thank you.

    I think it upset him more when I said sell and even go short looking for an under 1.50 entry point. Going short after a 130% run up somehow meant I was stealing his magical short idea that had worked so well.

    Of course I have also said that either close to or under 1.50 depending on where the stock goes after the first quarter numbers I plan on getting back into the stock.

    Do I think that the stock will move the way I am predicting, yes.Do I know that it will absolutely not.

    Only a complete fool claims perfect trading while saying that they have never been wrong (who could that be).

    • Zippy the pin head does not pay very good attention.

      Doesn't have a very good recollection of the facts.

      He was taking .10 rips here and there on a 1.30 run up, pretty much being on the wrong side of the trade.

      The funniest part about him claiming that I was stealing his call for a short over 2.20 is that he was posting over and over to short at 2.20 and close it out at 2.00 for easy money, I on the other hand am looking for 1.50.
      That means he should be out of the trade, while I am hoping for the stock to continue to drop.

      The same store sales for the month might actually send the stock up, but I am pretty sure that the quarterly numbers will cause the stock to drop, once again due to the exaggerated bottom line number from the change in the value of the options.

      Of course after the drop, when the stock settles it should be a good time to re-enter the stock provided the sss growth is holding up because the company might show an actual profit in the second quarter if that happens, add the value of the options swing again and there could be another pop.
