    • less, your posts are too funny. Do you have any clue what is going on in the least re ESI? I suspect not. I love the comments about the stock going up and down. Jeez. I wonder if other stocks do that too? Maybe ESI is the only one!

      I would suspect that the short sellers in ESI were more than happy to exit their positions yesterday given that ESI shares are going up (from below $12), not down. And the news and price action in Devry (DV) indicate the enormous level of risk that a short seller has in an ESI short position right now. You were earlier posting about the idiots buying ESI when the shares popped to the high $15 level, and then again at the high $16 level, and then again at the high $17 level, and now again in the $18's. Go ask the people you criticized about buying (whether short covering or going straight long) in the high $15 or $16 level how they feel about it now.

      Sentiment: Strong Buy

      • What's wrong with making money trading? $18.50 to $17.17 is a nasty loss, not a gain. Math that difficult for you?

        Sentiment: Strong Sell

      • In which post did I say anything about idiots buying at the $15 level? Show me please.

        Not many people got in at $12. If they did, then good for them. It wasn't there for long.

        $18.50 to $17.15 now. Was that a good investment? Sure, if you think so.

        ESI is quite volatile. I just enjoy playing the swings. I am banking lots of gains. Since earnings I bet I've made far more percentage wise on my ESI trades than you or almost anyone here, unless you were lucky enough to catch this at $12.

        Sentiment: Strong Sell
