We are enthusiastic about the way some of the newer tech names are holding up and we question whether we are seeing mark-ups of those names, that ridiculous process where money manager support their names into the end of the quarter. It can be justified by some of these guys because their numbers are so good they are certain to get more money in.
So it is a form of prebuying. Logical.
We have seen many of the most momentum-oriented players give up half their gains in the last few days, and we don't think these tigers like being wounded (forgive the pun).
For us it means that we are tempted to buy more
, two higher-quality hotties, but we can't get the stomach up for a giant buy.
Although we did for
as we calculate the
buying could be huge. We could be wrong, but this one smells like
ahead of the addition to the S&P.
We are grateful for our morning old-tech buys and our overseas wireless purchases, but we can't buy any more of them -- we're full-up I am afraid.
