    Volume Slightly Up

    Most articles are saying no showdown. I cautiously re-entered the market with may calls on ALKS ten contracts at 18 strike. Strong pipeline and revs coming in. Another strong pharma this year will be uthr.

    SCCO is stomping. I am glad you covered your short so quickly.

    AGNC earnings in two weeks. Too scared to enter until then.

    • Yeah, thanks with the SCCO short comment.
      The feeling I had told me to cover.
      I guess I missed the "then buy" part. :(
      Well, at least I covered(@40.03). :)
      SCCO is now around 41.25.
      The rise was as quick as I had originally thought the fall would be.

      With SCCO, its pps fell rather quickly each of the last 3yrs, and usually starting January-March.
      SCCO's pps rose to a higher high this year
      That, along with the big 2.75 dividend last quarter, made me think that a big drop was imminent.
      It still very well may occur, but I'm not thinking of shorting them again.
      I was luck to away with barely a scrape and I'm not pushing my luck.

      The more stupid thing was to sell them in the summer at 31.73
      A nine-fifty pps gain in five months, plus two ninety-nine in dividends,
      Wow, now that is a fish I regret letting get away.

    • Repubs now asking for a passed budget before they raise the ceiling. They will put off until 4-15 if Dems agree with plan.
