Yesterday was a big day for the people of Philadelphia. They had been waiting a long time for a pro sports championship of any kind in their city, and I'm proud of my old organization for bringing home the World Series crown.
I bet Cramer is ecstatic as well -- the Phils haven't been back to the big dance since 1993. I still feel we should have won that series, but today is this team's day. Congratulations to the Philadelphia Phillies organization for winning its second World Series title last night.
Winning must have been in the air. While I'm willing to concede that the Phils may have brought home a bigger win yesterday, I did grab one of my own. Halliburton (HAL - Get Report), my pick from last Friday, crossed the finish line for a quick $1,000 victory, improving my record to 81-0 with $205,800 in wins.
My purchase order was filled on Monday, and my GTC sell order was filled on Wednesday, a day in which the market rallied for the bulk of the day, but felt a sharp decline to close in negative territory at the end of the session. I tell you, these wild swings are unbelievable.
