If you sell short bonds, aren't you repsonible for the coupons due do whomeever you borrowed the bonds from??? And don't you have to pay some margin interest on top of that?
This strikes me as a bad risk/reward ratio, in general.

Just wondering if anyone has experienced a "make whole" call on a bond. If so, how was the call price computed...was it the present market value of the bond, what you paid for it, or some other method?

How the hell did that bat, by itself, hit a home run yesterday??? I do remember when getting good wood on the ball, there was really no feeling of force on the ball. The balls I hit the farthest as a kid, which were not that many....I remember hardly feeling the bat and ball meet...whereas if it was a glancing blow which caused a foul tip, I did feel those.
I know the bat was in motion, but since the batter was not holding on to it at point of impact, I can't figure how the bat did not absorb more of the force from the ball, making the bat go backwards, and not permitting the ball to go over the fence.
Any physics majors here? I'm gonna go watch minor league ball where I am now, Erie Seawolves, have a dog and a beer, and take in too much sun.
