I wonder what our expert market timer Goofy did.

I did poorly, as I said here:

To recap: two gigantic victories in the past 20 years.
Three episodes that were neither wins nor losses.
One action last year that netted about $100k.
One action this year that lost about the same.

It was bound to happen. I've also had crappy stocks along with some great winners (like AOL and Cisco in the 90's, Starbucks in the later 90's, and Facebook (still holding.) I've also had some real losers like @Home, Lucent (also 90's) and others.

Overall I'm very happy. This latest episode? Not so happy, but then I never expected to bat 1.000 (would have been nice, tho)
