Thankyou for your commendation. Whether commendation or condemnation, I acknowledge only those comments to or about me which come from responsible, adultly-behaving posters, among which you certainly are numbered. I view the $35 close with mixed emotions; if its still up there at option settling time for this month, I'll get bit. I really anticipated a large sell-of at this dollar point ... I'm somewhat taken aback such did not occur. The next few days will be critical if this stock is indeed to advance to any significant degree. On the other hand, it is a good sign for those who depend on this stock. As I have said before, I "play" the market, and so far this year, I've done handsomely shorting RSH (along with a couple techs and some telcoms ;-P). From my readings and research, I see no reason to expect continued upward valuation; quite the contrary, in fact. The shareholder's meeting will be interesting ... there should be some very tough questions posed to the board. Again, for the sake of those who depend on this stock, I'm glad for you. Personally, I'll continue to bet short. Its worked well for me so far.
