Well thanks for the advice. I took 1/8th off the table on the run up.
No Bush didn't cause the bridge to collapse but that $600 billion he spent in Iraq to stir up a hornets nest, piss off our allies and get more Americans killed than Obama did on 9/11 sure would go a long ways towards repairing a lot of our aging infrastructure.
But Bush doesn't care. He is faith based and the rapture is near. How pathetic.

You mean recovering back to $60.
Who of you has the guts to buy in now and be in the stock over earnings on monday. Roll them bones....
Check out how a 'real' company stock moves with CME today. Heading toward $600.
CME and ASEI have nothing in common. However, you should note that the valuation of CME is rather rich. CME trades at more than 15 times sales and has a huge assumption of growth built into it.
If you look at Enterprise Value/EBITDA ASEI is 1/3rd of CME. Again there is nothing in common between these two companies, but I would not expect to see nearly the same returns in CME as ASEI going forward from here. Both stocks may be up 50 points in the 18 months.

OTJ's QQQQ 49 puts aren't looking nearly as good as my QQQQ 49 calls. In at 31 cents yesterday. Now 50 cents. I am selling at 3.
OTJ bought my FRPT shares that I sold at 24. I bought puts at 26. and sold those when it hit 17. I am long again FRPT since yesterday, up 10%.
OTJ has a reputation. Not a good one.
Look at the volume. The daily average half way through the day and up nicely. This IS a good sign.
Haven't heard much from shorts lately. Could it be that those on this board finally covered and the rest could follow soon?
