  1. I sold SCO this morning for $27.15. That’s an increase of 0.04% today, and a 1% profit overall.

  2. I added a half position of SPXU at $22.58.

  3. Anyone still following NUGT? I feel like I’m carrying a boat anchor.

  4. Marshall, Something wrong with Game’s earning report. It was up prehour and now it is tanking.

    • Lynn,
      Citigroup had a negative comment about the company’s game strategy after the earnings report:

      Shanda Games Ltd. (NASDAQ:GAME): Though Citigroup keeps its Buy rating on shares of Shanda, the firm is doubtful of the company’s strategy of developing its G-Home platform rather than using established channels such as third-party Android app stores. “The company hopes to leverage the success of Million Arthur in China to attract more gamers to the G-Home platform. We are cautious on how this strategy would work out, mainly due to the limited user base of Shanda Games,” the analyst wrote.

    • Yes, I saw that. I had a sell order at 4.89 and it got to about 4.81 and then crashed below 4.20. I read the transcript and Ed is correct that there is a lot of angst over their mobile strategy. It feels way oversold to me, given the quarter and positive guidance. I will simply hold it and see if GAME recovers.

  5. I sold SPXU at $22.60 for a tiny 0.09% profit. I am not comfortable carrying it overnight without greater technical support.
