You're right, I just did the math. I did not net $50k to the old MMK. Net of commissions and fees (I'm with TD Ameritrade) I had a net $49528.40. Not that I'm smart or good at this, after all I bought QTM a few days ago...70k shares @ $4.19 and now down $98,528.40. What you shouldmight learn today is, we may both play marbles, but mine might be biger than yours and your skill may well do better than my size. I wish you well and good luck.
