I am a bit surprised of your comments regarding me. First of all, I remain with a stock like BARR until fundementals change to warrant a change. Second, when large caps started moving out a few months ago, I lightened up from 30K shares down to 10K. Of the 10K, 6000 I bought under $10. I have a hard and fast rule, when a co. disappoints me, I'm out at the open and into something else. I swapped all 10K shares at 7 3/8-7 1/2 for less shares of HBOC at 34 1/2. I bought 2000 shs of PWJ at $44, and 4000 shs of URGI at $14.
Now, does it bring pleasure to you THINKING that I might have lost a "CHUNK" O change? YOu can do the math: you'll see I got out of a loser and into winners getting back all my money and them some.
After talking with CFO, I am certain they will greatly miss Q2 and also Q3. Buying back 1 million shares was just to stop the bleeding. This one is going lower just prior to and learn.
If you want some winners, try *PWJ, *HBOC, *MSPG, *TLAB, *DH, *SDS, *KSS, and MAY. I own all these.

Good luck........Sparky
