and techstrategy: you're another idiot: following that fraud
It is called investing. Something that most financial market participants have abandoned and the PRIMARY cause of corporate malinvestment and the decline of US competitiveness. In due time, people will appreciate that investors allowing traders to dominate capital market signals to corporations was a very significant contributor to the unnecessary weakening of the US.
Anyone can look at any of my calls over the medium to longer term (like when I said GMCR should be $40 when it was at $110 and AGAIN $40 when it was $17... you won't find too many of the "shorts" that actually went long BASED ON THE SAME INVESTMENT THESIS when the trading games pushed it too low...).
I will outperform over time. Not worried about today or tomorrow.
