Let me tell you a little secret, about how it works...
You buy before launching a rumor... then you write the rumor on a blog and spread it... then surf all the way up... when if finds resistance, you sell it all and go short... then you surf it all the way down. The group responsible for this rumor will get the equivalent to (nr. of shares * $9) in profit taking, excluding commissions. Why 13.5? It's $4.5 on the way up, plus $4.5 on the way down.
Plain and simple, isn't it? And you've been played. Thanks!
Ben - Let me ask you something that is not a secret to anyone reading your posts. Do you always say such ridiculously dumb things or is this just related to RIMM because you are short and dumping? Your post would tell many that you have no clue as to what is going on. This is as equally out of line as the guy who just said the vodaphone was done. These kinds of comments from both ends of the spectrum do nothing but waste time. I'm sure done reading anything you have to say. Puttin' you on Knucklehead status.
