    Jan 2, 2013 3:47 PM | about stocks: FSLR, S, SPWR, SUNE

    The markets are on a tear this morning after Congress resolved the so-called Fiscal Cliff matter late last night. In hindsight, I should have bought my entire position on Monday and not tried to play safe...LOL! Of course, my Wednesday morning quarterbacking is not going to change the fact that I had to pay a lot higher price(s) on buying the remainder of my positions in Sprint Nextel (NYSE:S), MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR) and SunPower (NASDAQ:SPWR):

    So here are the balances from my original allocations:

    Sprint Nextel: (S): $750

    SunPower (SPWR): $2,034

    MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR): $1,274

    As per my gameplan, I went ahead and used up my allocations this morning and bought:

    Sprint Nextel (S) May 18, 2013, $6.00 Strike Price at the Ask: $0.14

    SunPower (SPWR) March 16, 2013, $6.00 Strike Price at the Ask: $0.61

    MEMC Electronic Materials (WFR): $1250 to purchase April 20, 2013, $3.50 Strike Price at the Ask: $0.45

    Later tonight, I will submit complete details of the trades and the current account status.
