I don't short stocks. I do not want to wish ill on a corporation or its investors in order to make a $. When I make a bad buy and in the position of losing real money as I was here, I try to figure how high a bounce it will make, and buy the appropriate # calls to break even and make a graceful exit, as I did here. Good luck to you and all your fellow cynics. I predict AVID will go 15% 2006, but it should be a real rollercoaster ride, have a blast, truly. Peace.
