As expected, Texas Instruments spit the bit after the bell. The sell-side's fave (and our short), Micron , should suffer collateral damage. There were other earnings high-profile minefields uncovered in the after hours. In looking at the bigger pi...
There is probably no group as loved today as semiconductors. I am short Micron and I have been adding all week.
On days like today you realize how much of this market has been mauled by the bear.
I was quite active in my trading and investing over the last two days (while I was on the West Coast and not writing in my Diary). Here is a summary of my actions: * I have added to my private equity shorts - (a new position) joins . * I have reesta...
