    I just hopped over to the MB to see what people were saying about today's volatility ... just look at the intraday pattern for the last five trading days and I see a tug-of-war between the shorts and the short-squeezers. Regardless, I'm throwing more money at it come Monday [after proceeds for options' exercises].

    ryl

    I just liquidated a large position in GE that I've held for six years in order to buy more RYL at $34.25; if you're real conservative, do a B/W to get it lower. [I won't be in a position to convert more until yr-end, when I hope it's trading no higher.] The shorts will toy with this until then and then likely switch back to pharma.

    They go ex in two weeks and they report in five weeks.

    They've gotten pummeled by KB's disappointment and I'm sure theirs won't be stellar. Even if they miss as badly, I can't see it dropping below 30 ... unless the SP500 drops below 1940.

    I'm in it for the 'long-haul' ... Summer 2017 is my exit point.

    Sentiment: Buy
