    Maria B. on "AFTER THE BELL" said

    on Fri. that the RSH run-up was thought to be a "delayed reaction" to the DE Shaw buy-in. She said that the news must have "slipped by" investors for a few days..?? What kind of lame excuse is that?? If someone burps on the street, the price is instantaneously reflected in the stock price. So, it can only be 2 things in my small mind. Either the thousands of calls were bought because it's getting close to earnings and people want to protect 30Mil short shares, or something is coming that will shock us all.. On fri. I bought OCT 40 PUTS. A week or so ago they were worth 7.80, now they're worth 5.80. I have said all along that I thought RSH would make numbers, but the sales data would be bad. That should be enough to start the slide. The only thing that would save RSH from tumbling after earnings is is some kind of very good news...I wonder what it could be..realistically...

    • Maria was reading off a script that was put out by an option players service. They claimed the exact same thing.
      I think it was pure manipulation as Target shares rocketed forward and their options flew out the door, BUT the difference in that was the VOLUME on Target was nearly 4 TIMES daily volume.

      Here, RSH had ONE HALF daily Volume.

      I have shorted the Homebuilders for two years and I saw the same games being played as with this stock. Some of us just watched in astonishment at some of the death defying action took place, but in the end it all came out in the wash, those pretty angels that were making everyone rich turned into pigs when the party ended.

      Take a look at ANY homebuilder and you'll see it's within 5% of its' 52 week low.

      NOTHING is infinite.
