NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- It was the morning of November 27, a sleepy Tuesday in my neck of the woods. I looked at my "wish list" of stocks I might want to buy before the "Santa Claus rally" commenced.Having just visited my local Costco (COST - Get Report) the evening before, I decided to check the opening price. COST had opened the morning of the 27th at $96.30. Talking to myself as I sometimes do, I said, "if it pulls back to $95 I'm going to buy some shares". Famous last words!
