Here's a story I thought I'd share with the KP Board.

You run across opportunities (both long and short) all the time in everyday life, but you must have the courage and conviction to act on the opportunities. This is a true story about Gateway, where I had first hand knowledge of a short opportunity (and failed to act).

When you encounter similar opportunities, don't miss them.

Subsequently, I had a question about shorting and put options. Here was my response.

Thought you might enjoy the story, and be on the lookout for similar long or short opportunities with companies you come in contact daily.
