Back on October 13th, I suggested Alaska Airlines as a short; that’s worked out nicely. I have covered and taken profits.
Having a very good day, for obvious reasons. I’ve got 50 shorts and 12 puts, all of which are profitable. A favorite equity short is Nordson, shown below, which looks like it’s about to U-turn lower once more.
