We scrambled the jets. We took leave of our discipline, which is to buy weakness. We bought strength. We put some money to work in that brief nanosecond where the market seemed to dip from wildly positive to just positive. And then we put some money to work higher.
Now we are waiting. Part of the problem with writing an online diary is that when we are waiting, we aren't doing anything other than listening to conference calls. Boring stuff like the fact that
was good -- we think because of giant farm supplements from the Federal government. Nothing really reportable.
We are picking at the faux weakness of the drillers, adding to a
position. We bought a little more
up 5/8 of a dollar. We bought
when it was down off of
because we think Pep is taking it to Coke.
Mostly we are waiting. I am waiting for my Cobb salad and then I am waiting for the
and then I am waiting for my
chat with Bill Fleckenstein on Yahoo! at 5 p.m.
Oh sure, we are plotting too, plotting for what would happen if we get a momentary blip down after the Fed talks. I personally don't think we will get one. But my view is not shared internally.
