The fact is that DD's "conversation" did not mention the 3M share Montaur conversion which was made public by BL a week prior to the conversation date. Does the ice-chest salesman at the north pole bother to tell the eskimo it's already freezing outside the igloo? Montaurs reported position does not show those shares being held. So assuming DD and Goldberg are correct (which I do) that means they short sold ahead of the conversion. Otherwise, suggest DD call back Goldberg and get clarification before "slapping" a fellow investor...especially one that has done their homework.
