We are picking. We just bought a little General Electric (GE) - Get Report down and some LSI Logic (LSI) - Get Report. We used the weakness in Yahoo! (YHOO) to get in some more. We know the Fed was tough; we expected it. We also bought some softies like Avon (AVP) - Get Report and Colgate (CL) - Get Report. And we tacked on some Microsoft (MSFT) - Get Report, PMC Sierra (PMCS) and JDS Uniphase (JDSU) .
Nothing big -- they wouldn't let you in for anything big. But enough to get some more exposure. We think we will need it as the rest of the news this week should be pretty benign.
Getting ready for the rematch of my Yahoo! chat with Bill Fleckenstein at 5 p.m.
