As you've likely noticed I've been recently talking up selling my CNXS stake because of valuation concerns. I had put an limit sell order in on Friday, but (dumb luck notice) the shares fell and my limit number was never hit.

At work all morning so oblivious to the big news of the purchase, I come back and see that all but .11654 shares of my CNXS holdings have been sold. I couldn't believe it, and it even took a couple of minutes to put it all together. I figured I had screwed the pooch.

I look at the transaction history and see that my shares sold at (dumb luck notice) $37.02, and were bought back on 13JUL06 at $21.51.

With luck like this I don't need to know what the hell I'm doing. :)
