This is one of those times that longs will earn their money and the boys will be separated from the men so to speak (no offense anabanana) - assuming that the binary event works out in our favor. There are always CD's at your local bank paying a generous 1% interest if you can't stand the heat. If you have invested more than you can afford to lose you may wish to reduce your exposure, in fact I encourage you to. I am watching the price very carefully today, I have funds teed up to add 20k shares as soon as the wire transfer clears my scottrade account. I have not seen any news or data to change my opinion of AFFY - is it a sure thing, obviously not. I do like my chances however - it is not about the two's and fews, an 11 cent drop shouldn't concern the AFFY long investor unless he or she is looking for an opportunity to pick up more shares. GLTAL!!!
