    • Yeah, it was nice not having to skip over the short seller posts to actually have a discussion.

    • Nice talking to you, without having to skip over a million short sellers blabber posts. Catch you tomorrow.

    • I think the biggest tell abouot the strength of the stock is that considering the volume, I thought there was a good chance that we'd trade lower than the open. There was quite a lot of profit to be had today, and despite that we traded above the opening price. Plus, as you discussed, the crappy day in general for all stocks. That shows me real strong strength in RIMM.

    • re: I think the profit taking happened today

      I was thinking that too, but since the stock didn't really "run" up today, some might decide to take profit and move on to the next trade. Hopefully, most of that happened at the close today.

      I'm kind of glad the market got hammered today, as we tested the toughness of this stock.

      If futures are up in the AM, we might get over 85 tomorrow.

      Good luck on your position

    • I think the profit taking happened today, or at the weak hands churned it to heavy buying (as you noticed). THus, we set the floor.

      I'm one of those that made a good amount in the most recent weeks, but I am holding as well. I haven't taken anything off the top, but may take some this week. Hell, I need to take some of the money the shorts have given me to go on a vacation :) But, I think it has more room to run on the upside, especially this week.

      Long term, I'm holding onto the bulk of what I have however.

    • We may have a little profit taking tomorrow, but if the market starts higher (futures, etc), I think this thing can rocket up. Look at how terrible the market was today, and how RIMM held up. Really unbelievable. I haven't seen this stock act like this in a very long time.

      My friend was up $50,000 on Friday and he's still holding. He's not even thinking about selling until 100.

    • You too. I think we'll definitely have a up week.

      We are going higher this week. Maybe not necessariliy tomorrow (although there is a more than even chance we will I believe), but my instincts tell me that RIMM will open on Friday higher than we are now.

    • Darby we were under 85 all day today.

      • re: Darby we were under 85 all day today.

        Friday after hours= 86= exagerrated buying to the upside

        Monday= net up 10.85 points

        Monday= tremendous support, even though shorts tried to bring it down. I was watching the ticker, and every short position got crushed within minutes

        Shorts positions= most shorts are short in the 70's, although some might have shorted more at 85. Even those have net short position of 77, at best

        Those shorts were hoping for a trip back to 75, which never happened

        This stock showed the best support I've seen in 4 months, and was up 10.8 in a terrible market

        Net result= this stock is a hold. Reiterations and upgrades today say the stock goes to 100+

        Put a gun to my head, I want to be long

        I'm not in love with any stock, but the trend since 10/26/05 is up.

        My buddy was up $50,000 on Friday, and he's still holding- says it should go to 100

        Everyone makes mistakes

        That strategy of averaging up your short position while a stock is moving up, is a recipe for disaster, with this one

        Give it up already, and go long on any pullback

      • And above 71.92 today as well. Depends on when you shorted. Of course, the only shorts that exist on this board shorted at 85.5. Of course.
