The DNOW spinoff of NOV. If the $22 valuation of Morningstar is anything near correct it's way overvalued (and I have no time to do deep analysis now and it's a small position).

Tilson's T2 Partners had a relatively new presentation on the tactical aspects of shorting. Try to google it. I wished I knew these years ago.
risk as little as possible until all the stars have aligned

Why sell puts? why not own it outright. Its still pretty cheap.
You can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something: your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever.

Hi rpadebet - Agree that it's pretty cheap, but I enter most of my positions via puts.  Also, I sell puts monthly on stocks that I feel are undervalued, not always with the hope that they are assigned.  If they're assigned I sell calls on them until they're called away.

Thanks

To the Board:

Please post your buys and sells in a more timely manner. It would appear that not everything is being reported and what is being reported is only after some delay. We need to ensure that accuracy is maintained.

Thank you for your cooperation in this very important matter.
Buy cheap and something good might happen.

It's a good point Kraven.

I am going to use that as an opportunity to put in a pre-emptive sell order on the SPY ETF.  I am 100% short the index when the transaction occurs.

NOTE: As this is a pre-emptive order, the transaction is subject to certain conditions being met.  Specifically the SPY must decrease in value by more than 1% by tomorrow's close.  Failing that condition I revoke my pre-emptive order.

 :P
