Hey though, tomorrow we might break it and keep it for all time, so things aren't THAT bad. Anyone with a short position is a total idiot (though I guess if they get lucky they may be able to cover around 11.60 on dips prior to earnings), and anyone without any position at all is just darn foolish. When you see a leader in a market lag the recovery but still have a viable business with reasonable assets and advantages among their target customers that the others don't have well . . . it may not be the kind of profits that I called on Apple when the ITMS opened, but it's still easy money.
Yer gonna take the blame for not knocking on wood?
That's ok, I didn't expect us to breach $12 until tomorrow anyway, as close as we got to it today was impressive, it shows more people are awaking to the fact that most ETrade "losses" have been provisioning and the losses they're provisioning for might now be moot.
