Howdy:

Ye, you and me both. I tried to buy some Stratos Lightwave with an experimental 10 share purchase to sell short. I ran it through Datek online. All they said is we don't enter premature orders until the stock is publicly available. When it was publicly available I couldn't get the order in because the response told me trading on this stock has been halted. Well I didn't get the order in and I lost a good chance but learned a wealth. If you would like to start a club on short term investing in IPOs and Splits. It looks like you need a group to get in their early. My new idea is this. Tell me what you think and anything you learned.

Thanks , Sam
