I forgot to say something about eBay. I think this is an excellent company that actually has a sound business model. I use it all the time as do millions of Americans. It think this company will be around for years. I am actually looking forward to going long with this company but not at the current price. When it was it the 30's the "Analysts Reports" said it would be $57 by years end. Just like in the old days of the internet frenzy, guess what happend to the stock the next couple of days. I just had to short it in the 50's as I am sick and tired of what the analysts say and how the sheep just jump on it. If I use the "Fools" method of evaluating a stock, eBay is maybe worth something in the teens. I think I'll pick some up then and hang on for a while.
