what the stock did today. He nailed it dead-on!

Welcome back. We missed you.
I do not tout a stock unless there are compeleing
and substantiated reasons for it. E.g. If a stock is
undervalued or has several potential products in the works.
Vertex meets the latter requirement and I have been a
long time holder and plan to continue holding for the
long term. However, I will not be a buyer at this time
as my portfolio is appropriately balanced.
You did not respond to my previous response to
your 7/18 message. I posted it a few days ago. What
happened to you shortie? Based on your statement, you did
not cover your 800 shorts when VRTX went all the way
down to $95. You could have made over $28,000. You

way down into the low 2 digit figure.
tis. Even by your own figures, if you would have
covered your short position when it hit $95 you would
have had $28,000 in profits. But greed stopped you. So
why don't you tell us how you feel now.
the opportunity you missed. You could have pocketed
$28,000 and since you claim to be so smart to time a
stock's price, you could have shorted the stock again
today and wait for it to hit the low aand maake another
$30,000. Since you claim you are very smart how come you

And to keep everyone honest, if it hits $130 before
it hits $100 you'll get a nice complimentary message
from me. We're sitting smack dab in the middle at $115
