  • I'm seriously considering buying the Spyder Trust (SPY) February $130 puts today. Although gaming the Fed can be a stupid move, I feel that they always disappoint, anything under a 50-basis-point cut (including a 50-bp cut) is likely to send the markets lower.We also have economic data coming out at the end of the week; ultimately it could show positive signs of the economy, but I still think we'll move lower before we move higher. Any thoughts?

  • What are your thoughts on Gap (GPS)? I think because of the recent rally in retail, the expected rate cut and the stimulus package, this stock is cheap and can do very well.

  • What do you think about John Donahoe taking over as CEO at eBay (EBAY)? I heard he is planning to focus on the actual Web site.

  • Can the stimulus package work? I think the only way it could have a chance is if there was a major marketing effort along the lines of "Buy American" or "Look for the Union Label" -- something to get Americans who receive these rebate checks to spend them only on goods and services that will produce more American-made products.
