A Recipe for Higher Prices - TheStreet

Where are the sellers when we need them? Every stock I want to buy is up six bucks this morning. Every one. Unless insiders have some stock ready and willing, as is the case with

Internet Capital Group

(ICGE)

, there is no supply. It is amazing. All of these little stocks that were so heavy just a few weeks ago are on fire this morning.

Every desk on the Street is scrambling for merchandise. You can bet that the syndicate departments will be hard at work trying to print some secondaries as fast as possible. But at this moment I don't see any supply.

Amazing. Where there are secondaries and insider selling, the stocks can't be given away. Where there is no supply, the momentum guys are piling in and the mutual funds aren't selling.

Recipe for higher prices.
