Yo putz, got atound to checking my dividend, I'll be damned, my dividend check on automatic was a bit bigger than all that hard sweating and panicking you did. Must suck to have to work for your money.
There are thing that I trade in and there are things that I invest in, Verizon is an investment for me that pays a dividend that can be reinvested and accumulated at good entry points. Dont understand the concept, exactly what is there to understand? You mean having less skin in the game because the margin requirements are significantly less than the requirements to go long? You mean calculating the necessary margin requirements? There's no mystery in going short. Regardless of whether going short or long, always know my entry point, always know when to exist, and always know what my tolerance for risk is.
This yahoo says "this turd" is going going to $43, if he is such the hot short expert, let see him ride it down to $43 or watch him squeal like a pig when the hand comes for the margin.
