Not Raising Cash

I’m over here, sitting in my glorious leather chair, in front of a highly egregious mahogany desk, buying shares of [[FXP]], whenever I look or glance at it.

Also, I’m throwing bombs at my trader/servant. Fucking bombs.

    Can I interest you in some SMN? If you are voting on the destruction of China, surely there is some room in your strategy for SMN, non?

    Over time, POT, MOS, and MON will double sword massacre the short seller.

    You can’t have 1.3 billon of us wanting better quality food without it affecting the food and ag markets.

    We will take food away from you 0.3 billion Americans. By the way, our chickens, sheep and cattle need corn for food, too. Stop with the ethanol, assholes!

    Speaking of shitty deal shops, how the fuck is it that LAZ is trending up?

    There are no deals. No deals=no coin.

    Fly you said earlier that you’d buy RIG in the 140’s. When are you going to pull the trigger?

    Good point.

    Dry bulk shippers should have plenty of business as China becomes net importer of grains, no?

    How far away are we from that, “good english speaking chinaman”?

    Just FYI my sources at CDW said their best selling products by far right now are RVBD and FFIV. I am starting a position in RVBD here.

    gapping-

    under no circumstances whatsoever should you even fucking think about RVBD.

    the GS note yesterday was on the money – WAN optimization is being implemented in every fucking box on the network now, RVBD is toast.

    here is a choice quote from the last Q call, when the CEO was asked why RVBD couldnt meet the guidance they upped 4 weeks prior:

    “well, um, you know, we had no idea that things were so bad out there….i mean, it wasnt in the newspapers or anything”

    i am not fucking kidding, that fucker does projections after reading USA Today

    and their CEO is a cokehead – see if you can find the video of the interview he did on bloomberg about 6 months ago – watch it and tell me he isn’t fucking wired.

    But doesn’t RVBD also incorporate a proprietary packet compression thats really beneficial? By the way GS had a fucking buy on the name until the analyst left and a new one came in. Bottom line this trade is based mainly on what their primary vendor is selling. I have a meeting with RVBD this coming week and will let you know what I find but by no means am I claiming to be an expert with their products, personally routing optimization is more important to me ala Internap.

    gap-

    i know from past discussions we are both technical, so i will tell you what i know.

    incidentally, all my knowledge comes from doing some research after hearing the RVBD CEO admit “if it wasnt for microsofts poor coding, RVBD wouldnt exist”

    RVBDs’ main claim to fame is accelerating access to Microsoft Office application documents across the network (.doc, .xls etc).

    the microsoft networking code does repeated 3 phase handshakes (think SYN ACK SYN-ACK) every 5 bytes or something moronic

    RVBD bypasses the nonsense, and does the handshakes every 1 kb or something

    genius, like thats worth a $Billion

    note: i realize that RVBD has branched out into other areas like Oracle Financials or some other god awful P.O.S., but it is my understanding that the M$ piece is what brings home the bacon

    LEH sure does look limp today, in spite of all the stroking it has been getting from Loomis Sayles, Lazard, Merril Lynch and any other Losers I may have missed.

    If LEH, as reported, is circulating an internal memo stating that LEH is “in the strongest capital position the firm has ever had,” I’d say that LEH is screwed.
