Of course, one must consider that these are TROUT fishermen we're talkin' about. It's not like they're common bass fishermen or tightliners for catfish. We're talkin' 'bout a somewhat sophisticated crowd here.

Well. . . maybe we are. Now that I think about it, we are talkin' 'bout Georgians and other southern outdoorsmen.

I'm just waiting for Mr. Beeks to deliver the report on orange juice futures.

Default Short Selling

I would add that in addition to the market "safeguards", and the banking protections / insurance, short sales make a huge precipitous decline less likely.

I used to really struggle with this, as I traded quite a bit at one time. But once I realized the supply-demand side of a short sale, I started to feel OK with it.

Now before everyone cringes from the evil of the day trader, think about it...short selling creates near-term buying pressure as the traders that sold short have to buy to cover their sale, which in turn creates demand for the stock, heading off a really precipitous decline. I am no expert but it does occur, and all those trying to cover their losses (or preserve their gains) by selling off in a decline at the highest possible price, prevents the evil day trader from driving the price down even further in the quest to make rapacious riches on his/her short sale. There is a yin to every yang.

Ask any corporate executive today what is the most important thing to the company? They will respond "Share Holder Value" which translates to stock price. Easiest way to do this is keeping large amounts of cash in hand driving up the speculative value so corporate and individual share holders see more $$$ on paper. This is where the biggest hole exists in their highway paved with gold because at some point the company has to invest in the business or go belly up. If multiple large corporations blow out at the same time the last recession will look mild in comparison. Another reflection of the very short view of today's CFOs.
John you are partly correct. What happens if Big Blue misses a dividend prediction? Right.

It's all about returning shareholder value in the form of dividends as well as maintaining a high stock price. Dividends are the better predictor of a company's health. If a company is making money and giving earnings to investors, then the management of that company is doing something right. So long as the earnings come from growth and margin management and not in the form of continual cost cutting; that bone is only so deep.

Earthquakes, ice storms, and just edginess in general. I'm sliding the risk bar to the left. Plus I've no clue on predicting what the CEO's will do. Now is this the best group for advising on women?
