I still think the stock is stupidly overvalued – but I cant take loosing this quickly. I need to be sharper than I am with my usual slow, value investments. I believe much of today’s rally will be due to shorter’s stops being hit above 290.

One day this will fall hard – I hope to be short when it does….
