    Sold 1/2 at about 15.95

    What do you mean what happened, you idiot? Did you follow my advice and lose money? I don't think so.

    In case you don't remember, I owned this stock BEFORE the big spike from 9.50.

    In case you don't remember, I SOLD stock at 15.95 and bought back at 15.15.

    I'm still deep in the money on this stock. If you lost money, I'm sorry.

    I made 70% in my portfolio last year. I'm up at least 25% just this month. Perhaps you should be reading more books, my friend, because they appear to be working for me.

    • I would defintley be an idiot if I followed your advice. I shorted at 16 and wonte cover until 12, which is coming soon. The interest in this stock, as well as the volume has dried up like a 39 year old womans uterus that spends her life churning her $5,000 etrade account and posting to message boards all day long.

      • Ok, good for you. I'm up 25% in January so far and MAPP has been a large part of that.

        If you can do the same short, good for you.

        FYI, I sold half my stock at 15.95, if you can read the subject of the thread.

        I bought back around $15.15, but just sold that for my first losing trade in MAPP at about $14.70.

        I sold only because I need to reduce long stock exposure in this market. I am now net short stocks for the first time since March 10, 2009, which was the last time I reversed direction (from short to long, that day).

        Today I sold positions in AMZN, MSFT, WFC, and other stocks and collected a large profit. I sold short GOOG, AMZN, AAPL, which are already dropping like rocks even from the depressed level where I went short. I also went long MNTA at $15.
