    • DAG1996: forgive my ignorance, but please help me understand why making money drives you nuts?

    • TruffelPig: Very volatile stock; I am trying to hold long term.......

    • DAG1996: oh i see. maybe not look at it as often. maybe set alerts for your top and bottom out points so you're not stomaching all the swings.

    • DAG1996: WPRT seems a stock that won't settle into a more stable price pattern for at least another year or two anyway. the swings will drive u nuts.

    • bigazul: Sorry TP... I bet against you today at $30.

    • Maria Auziliadora: Truffle even AAPL right now is crazy as long as you are up be happy and taking profits is not a bad idea either after 10 or 15%

    • TruffelPig: @Bigazul: you do know that you chose a very very bad time to short WPRT?
      6/7/12
    • TruffelPig: A herd of people OBVIOUSLY did that after the 20% up move - look what happened.

    • bigazul: Maybe, I like the story, but short-term we're looking at a failed breakout. I've got a stop on it though.

    • bigazul: I'd like to own WPRT and a couple of other related companies, but they are too speculative for this market...for my rules at-least.

    • TruffelPig: My theory is that a big cat is playing and is establishing a large position. Early allowed the shorts to take it down.
      6/7/12
    • TruffelPig: Now that the position is already large using shorts to get the price up. Pretty cool to see it in action.
      6/7/12
    • TruffelPig: I do not think the sellers are long-term holders or whatever.
      6/7/12
    • Maria Auziliadora: Of course a big cat has been playing it

    • TruffelPig: Still playing and did eat some swart fish it seems.

    • DAG1996: WPRT ceo was on Cramer tonight and i really liked his answer about the Cummins competition concern. if it gets below $25 again i'm gonna buy
      6/8/12
    • DAG1996: the only thing i don't like is that they don't pay a dividend. it seems a company in their position would/should
      6/8/12
    • TruffelPig: They can't because they are still 2 years away from profit really. They are in the fast growing phase and have to invest all they get.
      6/8/12
    • TruffelPig: Wait for a very very small pull back and establish a nibble position. 25 might not happen for a long long while - or tomorrow - lol
      6/8/12
    • DAG1996: goes to show i haven't read up on the full story yet. probably missed the $25 boat for good so i'll figure out how much i'm willing to pay
