Want to add shorting to my investment experience.Will use Waterhouse Online. Considering Philip MOrris, Gillette, Waste Management, McKesson, Carnival, AMD, Providian Financial. Opinions? Other suggestions? Appreciate all comments.

I replied:


I am long on Gillette. And their MachIII is doing great. Just look at the Gillette board (or even ask the shorting question (en garde!)) before shorting it.


Did you short Gilette (today down almost 10%, after an already slow slide down)?

I just wonder.....


regards,

Martin
