“The Fly’s” Top 10 Holdings

I’ve been all over the place with my commentary, as of late. Often times, I react very emotionally with words to market sentiment. However, I am much more narrow minded in my position bias.

Here is a current look at my top 10 holdings:

1.  [[REW]]

2. [[SMN]]

3. [[SKF]]

4. [[SRS]]

5. Short [[LEH]]

6. [[RIMM]]

7. [[FXP]]

8. [[AAPL]]

9. [[GD]]

10. Cash

    How is RIMM going to avoid slowdown? Or is it just the name that gets fed first with good news on the sector?

    Sell short TSCM!

    How out of touch with the working man is Cramer? Geez.

    “Is apple back? i see some things i like: $600 government checks is ideal I-pod territory. People are going to abandon Sprint in droves and i like I-phone’s prospects. Plus, this one has really been killed. Really good sign here.”

    Dan:

    It’s just one of those name that I’ve owned for a long time, with a cost basis as low as $18. I’ve tried to hedge it before and got my head blown off.

    I’ll just stick with it, for better or for worse.

    Fly any thoughts on HANS earning today? I rode it up and got out yesterday, seems priced about right. That will prob mean sell off especially in this market?

    Fly,

    Are you both short and long on all these positions? Just wondering. *smirk*

    AAPL is dead. It was a one hit wonder (iPod & iTunes business model). They are planning for the iPhony to be the revenue backbone in the upcoming years. Not going to happen. The smartphone market is crowded by companies that are more nimble to consumers. It takes AAPL 6 months for SDK and where the hell is 3G? Only took Sony 4 months to come out with phone that works better. The AT&T, Virgin, T-Mobile suck fest is not working. Plus, competitors this time learned from the mistakes of iPod competitors.

    Cash – automatic losing position. Dollar going down plus inflation = balls in a vise.

    Convert cash into silver or gold bars.

    Or chocolate (cocoa + sugar?) bars via DBA.

    PleaseKillMe,

    Like Google and Blackberry, iPod and iPhone should be in the dictionary, considering you hear these words daily. Every emo fag in the world has an Apple product, so don’t F with it.

    Damn I love today’s action.

    DOW and S&P both failed at 50 day. VIX back on the rise. Fucking gorgeous. I don’t know why I doubt myself.

    All ETF’s are “for rookies.”

    But you’ve indicated a prior affinity for “training wheels,” so…

    BTW — DJP is Barclay’s Bank.

    Not sure how you play a sugar and cocoa commodity deal out of that… maybe through the financing of select Jamaican cain fields or something?

    yeah I agree with the statement cash=balls in a vice…
    I hope the cash isn’t in US dollars…
    SLV or swiss franc is a good substitte, but with all your short activity I think you’re fine to put it in something. Then if you need to load it up, you can liquidate.
    SLV or UDN for inflation.
    I’d say with all those short positions you don’t really need to be in cash since you’re hedged…

    Mike:

    What if my positions trade against me?

    Are you that naive to believe it’s prudent to be 100% invested, at all times?

    wow- still using Yahoo to catch a glimpse and ARCA to get real time quotes.

    Have not placed any trades during market hours for over a month, except for one day when I was home from work.

    Steve, find me an example of the indexes overtaking the 50 day average on the first test after a) a drop of over 10% from the highs and b) when the 50 day has crossed under the 200 day. I can save you some leg work and tell you the odds are in the bear’s favor here. Still, if you would like to do some research and let me know what you find out, I’d be glad to know, especially if it differs from mine. Typically, the first test never holds.

    Deck is doing the numbers at close. Who knows who the fuck is going to squeeze the 20% short on the float if they have a one penny beat. The crm experience does not presage pleasantness. Besides, the douchebags seem ready to rally this pig into the close. Covering 80% of that position into the close.

    I’m their annoying love child, cutting my teeth on Nickleodeon’s “Badger the Bear” kid’s program (featuring Hanna Barbera Montana) whilst preparing to annoy bears on CNBC, circa 2022.
