I don't normally talk politics on these message boards; however, for those individuals that think Romney will win the upcoming election, the present sell price for Intrade shares is $6.12. These shares will go to 0 if Romney wins. You can sell shares you don't own. I think the race is still too close to call, but the money being bet is leaning approximately 3:2 in favor of Obama. If it is a 50:50 race, betting on Romney "appears" to be a sound vote. I don't have any advice in this matter - and forgive me for this non-BB&T related post.
