    CSCO vs. FFIV

    $70 huh?

    I hope for your sake that you're
    just a short trying to convince us to sell (which, in
    spite of all the ALL CAPS and EXCLAMATION POINTS
    generally used by shorts,does nothing but announce their
    level of intelligence). Because it's either that or you
    may be the dumbest guy on the planet (okay, second
    dumbest; I don't think anyone could take that honor away
    from our pre-adolescent friend TTFEDX).

    on what do you base this $70 target? Did you
    actually think before you spoke, or would that be too
    traumatic for you? The last two weeks were the hardest time
    the Nasdaq has recently seen. We had the biotech blow
    up, we had the Fed uncertainty, we had a bunch of
    economic data out, etc. Through all of that FFIV held its
    support level. It bounced off 85-88 time and time again
    without fail during the worst sell off we've seen in
    months. Yet for some reason, you're telling us that now,
    with earnings around the corner and no dark clouds
    over the market, FFIV is going to suddenly break the
    support level it has maintained for months.

    understand that FFIV trades in a very predictable pattern
    and does indeed present short opportunities at
    certain levels (very limited opportunities). But the
    reality is, shorting under 95 is foolish. Nothing is on
    your side. You would have to have TTFEDX's uncanny
    ability to short at the exact daily high everyday and
    cover at the exact low. Only TTFEDX has consistently
    shown the ability to do that (funny thing though, he
    always seems to tell us that only after the fact; hmmm.)
    In fact, he is so good he can short at the high and
    cover at the low even if the low occured before the

    If shorting is your style, fine. But you've picked a
    bad level to try it. Not to mention, if you had any
    real gonads or financial power you'd be shorting a
    highflier. But hey, if I had your level of intelligence, I
    wouldn't be too aggressive either.
