    I would suggest cashing 700 and getting some may and 07 otm/itm options. They are not for the faint of heart though. Check with Totb on this. He is on the bus, sits up front
    The right investment for a newbie concerned about valuation, is purchase at 35, selling a May 07 call for $8, and making 25% all cash deal for a 120 day trade.

    If you buy on 40% margin, you can double your money, but you vulnerable below $27.

    That is a conservative trade.

    If the stock goes to fifty, the premium is gone with the call at $16.50, you close the position, take a loss of $8.60 on the call, and a pop of 15 dollars on the stock, for a net of $8.

    If it closes at 35 on third week of May, you collect the 8 bucks.

    If it dips to 27, you are insured down to that amount, you can always buy the call back in March, and sell the August 30.

    Just a thought for conservative investors worried a hair about doubling hanging in there for the next forseeable future, not just the last month.

    • Oh, thanks for straightening that all out. Apparantly you have limited funds. You want to make money and move on??? I WANT TO TALK ABOUT MILLIONS!!!

    • So are you expecting a rise or fall in the near term (2 weeks) ? I do not think a settlement will happen in the next two weeks. Otherwise why would a CFO sell 45,000 shares last Monday if there was an impending settlement and miss a jump of 10-20 points. It would certainly look stupid to leave a couple of millions on the table.
