    Duck & Cover

    Duck and Cover is a suggested method of financial protection against the effects of a Solazyme stock explosion, which is a buy to cover order. Stops are intended to limit the financial devastation of shorts in the event of both an unexpected squeeze, which, they were told, might come at any time without warning (although with the Ballistic Stock Blackberry Warning System, a successful surprise attack was becoming less likely) and in the event sufficient warning is given. Under the conditions of a surprise attack, immediately after they saw a flash they had to stop what they were doing and get on the ground under some object—such as a table, or at least next to a wall—and assume a prone like position, lying face-down and covering their exposed positions. Duck & Cover.

    However it must be said that the technique assumes that after the initial blast, a short who ducks and covers will realize when it wise to cease ducking and covering (as the stock blast danger has passed) and then seek out a more sheltered investment strategy to protect themselves from the ensuing local fallout danger. After all, "Duck and Cover" is a first response countermeasure only It's best to purchase shares of Solazyme and go long once the new investment strategy is able to be implemented.

    • There was a short turtle by the name of Bert
      And Bert the Turtle wasm't very alert
      When danger threatened him he always got hurt
      He never knew what to do

      He'd duck and cover, duck and cover
      He'd hide his head and tail and four little feet
      He'd duck and cover!

      He hid beneath his little shell until the coast was clear
      Then one by one his head and tail and legs would reappear
      By acting calm and cool he pretened he was a hero
      For finding safety is the only thing to do

      And now his little friends are just like Bert
      And every short is very alert
      When danger threatens them they try not to get hurt
      If they only knew what to do

      They duck and cover, duck and cover
      They hide their heads and tails and four little feet
      They duck and cover!

      He hid beneath his little shell until the coast was clear

      And now his little friends are just like Bert
      And every short is very alert
      When danger threatens them they try not to get hurt
      If they only knew what to do

      They duck and cover, duck and cover
      They hide their heads and tails and four little feet
      They duck and cover!
      They duck, duck, duck, duck, duck, and cover
