    After my VMW short, here is another DDUP reports thursday...

    Look at the VMW board and search for my postings. I made good money shorting VMW since Nov'07. I had predicted a week before that VMW will be cut in half after earnings...

    DDUP is another PIG. If you want to make some money, short this PIG. I have been short on it since $40. Bought more puts yesterday. Will report earnings this Thursday. Trading at a market cap of nearly $1.5 billion+ and not even $100mil in annual revenues yet. i.e 15x Sales. And it is not profitable either. So in this market, it will get slaughtered from $25 to under $8-10 if it misses or barely meets. Last Q, it beat on both revs and earnings but not by much and the stock tanked from $40+ to $35 in AH and it is on the way down ever since.

    So here is the risk/reward. If they beat handily, stock may go up a few points ($2-$3 at best in this market). But if it misses, it will be slashed in half ($10-12) in AH and will trade further down to $8-$9 in coming days.

    Another reason is that they may guide lower as the street is expecting 100% growth (naturally at such lofty valuation) and they may (I am sure they will) guide lower.

    No way, they can achieve 202.07M in Revenues from the current year's $105 million or so.

    Think Riverbed.

    So in short $3 upside risk max, and $12-$15 downside reward!

    Other notable shorts (thru puts) of mine:
    IYR, DDUP, VMW, C, QQQQ (QQQQs for hedge only)
    (closed, but still room to go)
