    This is one "HIGH FLYING" stock, if you "SHORTED" it

    Sure hope you shorted it. And thanks for the gain, nice to have a little spending change in my pocket and not yours.

    • Here is an example why the public will not or can't make money. Yes, shorty, you got a little change. But you paid short term taxes on it. I prefer the dvidend and the stock appreciation. You are a broker's dream. I prefer not trading every day and making the con men of Wall Street richer.
      Slos and steady wins the race

      • I get the idea you think that I shorted FE, I did not. I did make a nice gain on a short term trade. I think FE is being held down by the weak economy and as the economy grows so will FE, especially if they are able to acquire AYE. Right now with all the uncertainty with Obama trying to force gov. health care, cap and trade, restoration of taxes from Bush's tax cuts, and Obama's wanting to spend his way to prosperity does nothing to help FE or the market in general. I do own FE for your info. But if I can make a quick buck why not. When I see someone who has shorted a stock and the price rises possibly forcing them to cover this is an oportunity to make some money on someone trying to run down a good stock. Buying and holding right now is very hard due to the above listed risks, but when sanity comes back to our gov then so will many of these stocks.
