I went on margin for the first time in ages, leveraging up to buy as many blocks of WNC as I could possibly muster. I know their sales are explosive. Let’s see how the street likes them.
I also added to my ELLI position, doubling down on the name –post brutal sell off. It is my only loser, at the present. I am swimming in a sea of green. I emerge (you come, I emerge) from the water looking like a sea monster from the lagoon, strewn with seaweed and Heineken beer bottles. I am making so much money right now, my face is numb and my right hand is slapping people in the face, all on its own.
Back in the old days, I’d slap my trader/servants with hot slices of pizza. Now that I work from home, my wife slaps me with debit card transactions. There is a certain sadness to my existence. Nevertheless, don’t feel sorry for the guy with the machine gun and money to raise a militia.
“The Fly” dominated today’s tape, walking about the office, plotting to kick over the tombstones of his enemies. I made 3.10% for the day, led by NAV, VHC and WNC. I’m +10% for the year. I’m “gorilla arming” my banana into the weekend to come (absolutely no masturbation).
At the time of this post, I was 106% long.
