    I'm not going to chase it down, either. It's hard (at least through Schwab, who I assume is pretty good at finding shares) to get shares to short--1500 here, 746 there....

    I'm going to be quite hardheaded in holding this one short--sort of like my 20000-share SMD short position, which celebrated its first birthday in August.

      bob's gonna love this one, (cover them eyebalss bubba-bob, cause this one's gonna really make you laugh, you might be subject to at least a bad case of hiccups, if not a gut hernia) but for a smart guy like you, here's a little suggestion for a near-term hedge just in case bubba is right and VNX "doubles or tripples" from here....

      take a look at what the low-cost hedge of owning a few of the SHFL Nov 25 and or 22.5 puts would do to offset a run in VNX :)

      now that 'one-fingered / bubba bob' is wearing the capitulation cap, you gotta
      have a nervous weekend,

        Go SHFL!

      • I have no particular opinion about SHFL. My weekend is going to be pretty quiet.

      • ScumMan,

        I doubt you're right but stocks are not perfectly efficient pricing tools over the short term so who knows where SHFL or VNX will go on Monday, the following Monday, or the Monday after that?

        All I care about is where SHFL will be in a year or two and the same goes for VNX if I am able to short the POS at prices I deem reasonable. In that --in the price these two companies stock prices are ultimately heading-- I have little doubt.

        In the meanwhile, I hope you have a shit weekend.


        Go SHFL!
