    Enough is enough - time to move forward. The Big boys have enough shares now.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    • It's not blocking. It's unwinding of the window-dressing purchases made at close and AH on Friday.

      You n00bs will never learn. You will also never get your money back.

      • Really, this whole window dressing idea is funny. Worlds worst money manager buys a stock that you believe is going down to show that he has some in his portfolio because it recently went up? #$%$. Still going to 6.25 by end of year easy.

        Sentiment: Buy

        Anthorenigma is right. This market behaviour has occured for many weeks now, long before Cramer's call because of window-dressing. Also several posters have already noticed it, at certain levels big chunks of the shares are being offered, but to such an extent that it will not lower the price (thus at that moment not short selling).

        MM's playing the market (as someone wrote few weeks ago because of outstanding calls)? Perhaps. But IMHO it has nothing to do with "unwinding of window-dressing", as this pattern can already be observed many weeks ago.

        OK. Im a newbie and I will never get my investment back on AMD. I guess I will have to start selling my services to your woman again. That worked to get me the past chunk of window dressing spending money.

      • So you think this fits hey.

        Definition of 'Window Dressing'
        A strategy used by mutual fund and portfolio managers near the year or quarter end to improve the appearance of the portfolio/fund performance before presenting it to clients or shareholders. To window dress, the fund manager will sell stocks with large losses and purchase high flying stocks near the end of the quarter. These securities are then reported as part of the fund's holdings.

        Investopedia explains 'Window Dressing'
        Performance reports and a list of the holdings in a mutual fund are usually sent to clients every quarter. Another variation of window dressing is investing in stocks that don't meet the style of the mutual fund. For example, a precious metals fund might invest in stocks that are in a hot sector at the time, disguising the fund's holdings, so clients really have no idea what they are paying for.

        Window dressing may make a fund appear more attractive, but you can't hide poor performance for long.
