You too could buy AOL today, right now, at just about the same prices as I did. Whether I actually did it or not is irrelevant, you can tell whether it was a good idea or not by seeing what happens to AOL. Obviouslly, in hindsight, shorting TTI would have been a good idea. I however cannot go back in time and short it. This idea was not advanced by you as a good idea *before* it happened. So that information is useless, so why even mention it?
I could have sold TTI and put it in DELL as you suggested at the time you came on this board. You made a prediction then that didn't work out.
If you want people to take what you say seriously, you have to establish a track record that gives you credibility, by recommending actions *before* the events unfold.
