Me:Dish has to be revalued by this fiasco in the very short term

GH:As I have noted, I think Viacom has more short term risk, and Dish has more long term risk if the fight is protracted.

GH:So sometime soon the institutional guys are going to figure this all out and dump the stock.

GH:And that's what they say about every company that shuts down because of a strike or has a distribution channel pinched. Doesn't usually happen, because these things have a way of getting settled.

GH,

you were right...a guy can try cant he? It still will not surprise me to see a sell off of the Naz and of Dish.......based on the little bits of news such as the congressional pressure for a contract yesterday.....the stock has been holding up well......but now ironically there is not much to look forward to in this market.....

As I said there is not a full win for Via or for Dish...just qualification of what will be in what package that Dish sells. Perhaps both parties won...but will that matter tomorrow?

As for the institutional guys? Now I dont know what they will do or when. If the market sells off extremely hard here they may need to raise cash fast...but we dont know what will happen yet.....

PS Dish closed down today after being up in a down market all day. I think there was a lot of pressure to go up today from what was going on in congressional hearings. When the hearings were over the stock went down with the market at the end of the day. There will be no cover for Dish today.
