(Financials-still don't trust 'em or feel we're out of the woods with more ugly news still in the wings & not fully factored in the overall sector pricing. And this had had quite a run up.God only knows why. Nearly at their 52 week high today.)

Isn't this amazing how someone can be soooo wrong! As I type, the sock is $6.17, and you had your say at $4.

Isn't amazing how someone can be so rude? I'd say I'm only early maybe-not feeling wrong yet. Thank you for the constructive comment. I learned a lot. Since this is still rated a 1* by all of Caps I assume you are making this similar taunt to all the other players who have also panned this "sock"?
