my idea of an investment is not being able to capitalize in a few min, hrs, or a day. After that, if I have to start reading 10-K's I think of it as an investment. You may have noticed that markets go up or down. Typically down moves tend to be more painful and therefore it pays having some short positions to make up for your losses on your long positions. So far, being short leap has not paid off, but if history is any indication, once everyone realizes that there will be no buy-out and once they report "earnings" and everyone realizes that getting a customer costs leap about as much as that customer would pay for a yr of service and multiply by 300,000, stuff is bound to return to normal
I'm short. Went in for a trade and became an investor as it kinda got away from me. You're obviously one in the know as you managed to make 2 spelling mistakes and a grammatical error in a very short blurp
"The market can remain irrational for longer than you can remain solvent." If you went in for a short trade, you shouldn't let a move against you make it a long trade. That is a recipe for losing lots of money.
