Sold half of my remaining Wells Fargo today  :-\

I still think Wells is one of the cheaper stocks available today...

It wasn't an easy decision, but we're up to 8x pre-tax pre-provision profit now. I'm trying to buy a small community bank at less than 5x in its stead.

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   

Quick glance, less than 60 seconds, CTCM looks interesting.

Kraven, So  that I do my part to be timely, if I have time this evening to do more research and I like CTCM, I will write some 10-strike puts tomorrow! So you can front run me if you like.

Lance, We have similar, maybe identical, strategies! Thanks for bringing CTCM to my attention.

Phil - if you don't mind my asking - what broker do you use to buy the Korean stocks given the difficulty for retail investors to get them?

And are there special restrictions in buying them?

thanks

Thanks Phil - should have figured it would be easier in Europe than the US!

IB allowed me to buy the hyundai prefs (off the london exchange, but traded in USD). There's a thread on it in the investment section.

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

Looks like today is your day! I am a shameless cloner, copied you and shorted the day highs :D.
