  • Short Portfolio Update - Covering Some Orbitz For More National Bank Of Greece 0 comments

    A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned an update to my theoretical short portfolio. Here was that update, in case you missed it.

    Last night, I decided to slightly change the weightings of two of my positions. The seven names stayed the same though.

    Here is what I did:
    • Covered 22,000 of Orbitz (NYSE:OWW).
    • Shorted an additional 45,500 of National Bank of Greece (NBG).
    The remaining five holdings involving Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX), Amazon (NASDAQ:AMZN), Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (NASDAQ:GMCR), Sprint (NYSE:S), and Suntech Power (NYSE:STP) did not change.

    I will probably change a holding or two next week, as I think I should cover a couple of my holdings that have done well.

    Disclosure: I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours.

  • $TSLA announcement 8pm eastern. Too late for AH trading, but if news is bad, it gets dwarfed by debate.
