            • Obelisk2121: Say AMBC goes out and gets about $2 billion in settlements from banks. Is that realistic and where would that put the stock price?

            • Shane Blackmon: i think 1.5-2.5B would be realistic. It would be it around $40. Buy a good biz to use NOL's... could be 50-60/share

                    • Zeus2012: You should check out the 5.65% maturing in 2020. Traded down to the mid 70s at one point last week (also has change of control protection).

                            Bought $RSH at 2.25 for a swing. Technical trade, high short interest, $BBY acting great. Expect a squeeze when it crosses 2.30

                                $SGYP longs should look towards $CLSP. $3 equiv entry into SGYP, but locked up for 24 months. Solid risk/reward in my opinion.

                                    $GNRC this pop should be sold into. As holders who were looking to sell in the 2ndary will likely sell in the open market now.

                                    • Shane Blackmon: Just consolidating after big gains... expect a 1 or 2 day selloff that is vicious. Those are bull market selloffs. Buying opportunities.
