School and Baseball......

So baseball fever has hit Philly in the wake of the World Series win.  I couldnt care less about baseball.....or any other sport for that matter - so maybe thats my issue with the following comments and I acknowledge my lack of team spirit, but heres the deal.....

Last night Zev's school sent a mass voicemail to parents (yes, a very fancy system, who's stated purpose was to inform parents when there is an emergency - yea ok) saying that the children should come to school wearing red and white today and that the children would be participating at school in a large rally in honor of the Phillies........

Um, hello  - i have issues here!!  How about some parsha which Zev has yet to learn this about you go back and teach my kid something about sukkos and simchas torah - cuz he learned NUTHIN'!  Im really not happy paying almost $2k/month in tuition to have my kid go to a rally for a baseball team........

Sure - Im all about fun......and I really dont begrudge anyone their sports - to each their own....but seriously!!!

Steven saying Im being unreasonable, maybe I am.

Go Away........Please!

"I've got my sight now
I see everything you hid
So don't you try to right now
All the wrong you did
I might forget you
But not forgive "

Trades for Friday 10/24/08

So it didnt take a genius to short anything at the close on Thursday - 98% of stocks we down on Friday, so needless to say, all picks were fine.

No new picks for the close of Friday, due to the drastic drop....Ill wait til Monday.

Ok - The Last Baby Post!!

Amitai Yitzchak's Bris

Well, Well......

Who called the Dow below 10k?
Anyway - yes Im still, Im not long ANYTHING!  Which means, since earnings season hasnt kicked in yet, Im not trading everyday.
Today's pick - short AYI
Thursday's pick - short MOS - kept until Monday - yielded over $1
Im not totally confident about today's pick.  Any little good news will make the market swing in the other direction, but it fits.....
