    Well what if I did own BOOM in real $? I would have made lots of money and I can sell it before it goes down.

    I doubt you would have picked it as one of your plays for this month if that was the case :D unless of course you are a practicin to be one a dem pump n dumpers! :evil:

    Looking at the last major trend low at 29.30ish, and da fack that BOOM may just rally off da buy signal from Fri (and the relatively low OBV of +500 which means there is more "idiot" room on da bus) I will even tell ya where to sell, just to show ya where me heart be at. :D The maxi BOOM should hit would be 38.00 and if it does get that high i sho hope it gets there in da form of a blowoff top. The 29.30ish trend low is a nonconfirmed low however. That means that low will be taken out at sometime in da future, probably before the month of Jan is out based on da fack that BOOM has a history of getting dumped in a hurry when everybody wants out. Once 29.30 goes there will be no stoppin er until 21.00, minimum! :wink:

    Well if it takes about 2 weeks to get to 38.00 then you will retain last place in this competition. Congrats!

    Well BOOM doesn't actually have to trade through 38.00, I just said that the 38-39 area would be about da maxi I would expect it to go based on the numba fo da trend low I gave ya. I hope da longs will remember that numba. If it takes 2 weeks I would look elsewhere fo a good chort. And it wouldn't mean that BOOM wasn't a good short anyway. :D I was just givin all da lowdown on da pig dat is BOOM. At $34 and change it is close enoguh to get to $38+ in a day if Cramer would just give it de ole pumparolla! You'd have to start gettin noivous if you was long BOOM and Cramer gave it da nod I'm wreckin. I sho wudd if I was long! :D

    My fault on the ISRG. As of Friday, you are up 4.9% on your picks. In addition, you have the 2nd best pick of the 100 and up group with ISRG.

    :lol: Thanks! Actually, now it appears that ISRG is of more concern than WFMI, and WFMI is of concern only because the split screwed up da chawts, and ya really doan know whassa gonna happen if ya can't read da chawts. :wink: I thunk ISRG wassa gonna jist tumble. But the selling today actually put in a higher trend low than the trend low from da selling earlier in da week. And that trend low from earlier in da week wassa higher than the one from last week 8O That's usually a good sign. BUT! Today's trend low was being put in going into da close. If ISRG can do the ole extendo down in selling on Mon to below 126.75ish on de open methinks I'll have da pig trapped! Dat be da plan anyhoo. Eventually I'm gonna getter dunn wit ISRG though. :roll:

    Gunther, you don't have to pick an entry price because the price is determined on the first opening day in Feburary, so you still have a week left. Rules are on page one.

    If only I hadn't picked the broken stock that is JNJ. I predicted it would be fixed during this month. Clearly it's now more broken than it was before! I sold it in real life today.

    As for EXP being up 33% - that's completely surprised me! I didn't really think of actually buying it for real! Doh!

    BOOM was the only one that did anything like I expected.
