    If you had to short one stock, would it be BBRY or NFLX.....or would you go long on any of those if you think they're oversold?

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: what if oil prices go to $200/barrel due to a possible Iran conflict?

    • 1980XLS-2.0: And, what does oil have to do with Solar? US electricity derived from oil is about 1%. Solar competes with Nat Gas and coal, not oil.

    • mP1: BBRY might be bought for its patents, thats about all it has going for it.

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: investors are so divided on netflix and bank of america. I'm thinking of picking up some shares on BBRY though. Joey, thats a risky bet

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: 1980, for a while there was a large correlation between crude and solar ETFs, until recently due to Euro woes, decline in govt. incentives

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: mP1:, i agree, its almost trading at cash.
      12/18/11
    • 1980XLS-2.0: Edgar, agree about past correlation. Hence the opportunity. There never should have been one, and now correcting.

    • 1980XLS-2.0: Markets can remain irrational for a long time. They are now getting wake up call re solar. No storage breakthrough, no solar viability.

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: 1980, what are you putting your money in now before the Christmas rally (if there's one) for a short term play? and in 2012?

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: agree on the fact that solar competes w/ nat gas and coal, but the crude rise affects giants like WMT and HD who will invest in solar panels

    • Edgar Ambartsoumian: to save and cut costs.

    • Josh Krause: I have a hard time believing Canada will allow a takeover of BBRY, especially just for the patent portfolio. Fire the CEOs, then do better

    • JoeyDF: Edgar, in call option u only lose the premium u pay ..its the least risky of all the trade instruments.
