This Irishman just became a shareholder.  I think the stock is going to either go up or down from here.  I'm betting UP.  Wish me luck.

update:10/09/2008: Thanks to an upgrade by S & P I sold at market open for 20% gain. I will consider buying back in when the stock retraces.  My sells were at 1.94 and 1.88.  S&P s price target is  only $2.00 so I'm pleased.

 

update: shareholder once again @ $1.69 and $1.58

update: 10/13/08 stock is sinking like a stone (currently $1.08)  and I STILL own this pig -- way underwater.  Last Thursday and Friday were hairy days for trading. Hope RBS doesnt go BK like WAMU.  Avg down? 

update:10/13/08 stock is now $1.50 and I'm kicking myself for not averaging down at the mornings lows.  &%@!

update: 10/13/08 -- out of my $1.58 shares at $1.98 for a NICE gain.

update: 10/13/08:  blub, blub, blub... back under water on my $1.69 shares.

update:  10/30/08: still holding my $1.69 shares and even doubled down at $1.13 but STILL UNDERWATER with these

Thanks Lyn!

Some action on the powers that be and rate cut on both sides of the ocean is what I'm betting on.

They really clobbered the stock at the close.  FINGERS CROSSED.

Well, McAtee is a Irish name but I make no claims of pure pedigree; too many bitches have jumped over the fence.

 

Missed a great trading op premarket to sell around $2.00 (was sleeping).  Its hard being a trader on the west coast :(
