Can you only buy stocks or can you short?

Its probably too late to ride on earnings issuance...but that's where I'd look.

V is nearing $70, when the hell did that happen.

Ride the wave of GS.

yo this is what i did last year

fake ur buying behavior and then go back and edit it after u see what made HUGE gains, and give ur self some minor losses, I made MADOFF money HAAHHAHA (5extra credit points -__-)

but I would suggest investing in birds for maximum gains, word to miami zoo

well pretty much every company announces their earnings for the past quarter; rimms is june 15th. earnings reports can make or break a company in terms ofgains and losses. for example, when the recession was just getting bad, rimm announced earnings WELL-BELOW those predicted by analysts from various 3rd partycompanies. as a result, the price dropped almost 20%. in rimm's most recent earnings report, they jumped 20%. add in the fact that blackberries are sellinglike hot fire and are getting great reviews, chances are june 15th is gonna be a good day for investors.

Under Armour (NYSE Ticker UA). They just landed a contract with a youth Cal ripken Baseball League recently, and last quarters earnings were better thanexpected. Investors are gaining confidence. A week ago you would have been better off, but it still might be a decent stock to buy in a mock competition.

why did you buy a bank stock? the only thing id do with banks is short sell

buy small cap biotech stocks......they have the most potential to rise 300, 400 % in a couple days. since its just play money and 100k i would risk it. celltherapeutics you could try

everything has gone up except for staples and walmart, they went down..im waiting a few days for them to go back up and then sell

S & PALM have been KILLING and will continue to spike on Pre announcements, hype and release date.

AAPL will go through the roof after the conference in early June. New iPhone, touch netbook etc.

BoA and Citi you lucked out on big time that was not a wise move from a real money point of view...

Actually BoA was but not Citi

Stay away from Chesepeake Energy is all I have to say.
