I'm glad to hear you're waiting. I think you'll save yourself a lot of pain. As far as short share numbers please be aware that data comes out twice a month and can be severely inaccurate. I am going more off the "feel". I bet these restaurant guys were watching Dardin (DRI) get killed a few weeks back and figured the same could happen here, not taking into account change of market/analyst sentiment. I'm not sure if you're trading/investing long or short term, lloyddoble, but for the short term I'm seeing the fertilizers (MON, MOS, POT) bounce off a 5 month trendline with POT earnings tomorrow, and longer term, I noticed NRG has 40,000 calls in March! for a quality "on sale" energy stock that just made a major double bottom. Anyway, best of luck in your investments!
