This morning, everything was up nicely and then, a little later, everything was going to hell. I checked thestreet.com and Cramer had posted that something was stinking up the joint and he thought it was Bernanke's speech to Congress. I decided that it was time to trim, so I sold a little over 5% of my COP stash for a 15% gain.
After that, Cramer posted an update, saying that Bernanke didn't stink after all, and the market recovered for a while, but ended the day solidly in the red. This got everybody's attention. We'll see.
GOOG was down pennies.
COP ended 2 cents above where I sold it, but down almost 1% on the day.
ATPG is holding onto its big gain of two days ago.
DE, C and OIH did not impress.
The whole portfolio was down 1/2%.
