    • Ocean Man: LULU is a smart buy on a drop like that because they would be a very synergistic acquisition for Under Armour or Nike, giving a floor.

    • fxmaven: still too expensive for a takeout, maybe around 20-25
      12/1/11
    • John Rayhall: A little expensive a takeout yes but a pretty well run company. Their market cap is actually a lot bigger than UA's. I like UA as well have

    • John Rayhall: traded it a few times this year. People thought earnings would be a little off. Every time it gets beat down it comes back. Long at 44
      12/1/11
    • fxmaven: the only decent idea that cramer ever had was for UA and LULU to merge. would be an interesting company
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Ya that would be something it would appeal to both men and women. Can't see how it would happen though.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: not until one of them starts to have real problems and is looking to cash out
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: I know that the UA founder would have a lot of trouble parting with his baby not sure about LULU.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: Yes I've heard the same about UA. LULU are really money grubbing hypocrites, they'd sell to the right buyer

    • John Rayhall: I think Plank is his name? Not sure he may have a poison pill in there as well. LOL Can't trust anyone into yoga :P Jk :)

    • John Rayhall: LULU $48.65 pre-market not sure if I should sell or wait not a bad gain from 44.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: I'd take profits on the barclay's upgrade IMO
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: I probably will thanks
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Amazing how they sold LULU off yesyterday to under 42 and now it's at 50 guess earnings didn't mean squat.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: short seller effect. I am a regular LULU/UA trader
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: I started trading them and retail this year gotta broaden my horizons lol. UA and LULU are awesome stocks to trade. CROX was for awhile 2
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: i would short UA here
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: ya I like buying it in the low 70s or lower if possible and shorting at 52 week high so far it has worked.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: i do the same - except i use short puts at 75 as a hedge :)
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: That's smart I should start doing that as well :)
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: admittedly it was an accident (to generate cash while being fucked on a short) but it's worked out great
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Haha at least your honest. So far everything looks good. Go Bulls! lol
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: i'm a real straight shooter - as napoleon said - better lucky than good
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Just don't end up the same as him lol jk :) I admire that me too but it's not usually rewarded.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: that's why i quit corporate life, in fact you are punished for it.
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: I wish I could quit don't have anywhere near enough money to.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: it's a tough uphill climb. i made my money in the 90's in Russia, risked my life and won the gamble
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Wow that would be a story I would want to hear one day. Well in the 90s I was in high school and college so I still have a ways to go.
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Credit Crisis and all screwed me and my 401K big time muddling back now. Just my luck we are in a psycho market lol.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: hate to say it, but I think USA has become equally corrupt as the soviet union, with fake capitalism, instead of fake socialism. horrible.
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: It's most likely always been corrupt we just haven't noticed it.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: GHWB was last guy who tried to run the place seriously, it's been the banker bubble/fraud show ever since, starting with WJC/Grnspn
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: My dad hates Grnspn blames him for everything lol. Ya I hear we need a new strong capable leader but I don't think he or she is out there.
      12/2/11
    • fxmaven: It's time for a new Andy Jackson, abolish the Fed, destroy corporate power.
      12/2/11
    • John Rayhall: Haha that would be something.
      12/5/11
    • John Rayhall: Ok sold my Lulu at 49 from 44 should have sold over 50 but I think that's not bad for a 3 day trade.
      12/5/11
    • fxmaven: Busy planning my trip to Africa, no time to trade. Stay in touch though...will look at shorts @ 1280 or so.
      12/5/11
    • John Rayhall: Nice that's awesome. I def will. S&P downgrade possibility news may have put a cap on today
      12/5/11
    • fxmaven: Only impact of downgrade is on trading psychology in a QE world where all debts can be paid with newly printed money
      12/5/11
    • John Rayhall: Hedge fund and mutual fund managers are nothing more than a bunch of emotional day traders unfortunately
      12/5/11
    • fxmaven: performance anxiety
      12/5/11
    • John Rayhall: Lol ya and not just in the bedroom :P. A lot of them are behind now I don't believe that we will see a major selloff in Dec.
      12/5/11
    • fxmaven: the ones who were short euro bonds and equities this/last are feeling pretty dickless at the moment
      12/5/11
    • John Rayhall: Lol ya
