Reik: I agree with you about going somewhere else to buy a stock that drops and then returns to previous price. I don't have a margin acc. so I can't short, but could buy puts. All my money in an IRA. I was looking at Yahoo's historical prices for Nov 2 close $4.04 Nov 3 close $3.86 ,18 drop. thats .04% Thats still not bad for one day. Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
