    Sweet. We have a trip planned this summer. I want to finally buy some heady topper by alchemist in Vermont. I'm not sure I've had Rocky Mountain I'm in PA.

  2. They don't distribute outside of the Front unless you had it here or someone brought it back special. In fact, the first Denver bar with it on tap was only about 2 years ago.

    Also, a fan of Yeunling for my beach beer ;) (wish they'd had the good sense to stay out of the fray this election season though...)

    Yuengling is one of the best cheapest lagers I've ever had. Definitely beach day or after mowing lawn.

    And maybe they should have stayed quiet. I can't believe their profits are so large. America really likes yuengling. I wonder if they took a fiscal hit yet with that endorsement.

  4. So QCOM blew past my stop this morning while I was in the shower...still above the stop, but looking a lot nicer chart-wise. I'll go ahead and hang on here and tighten the stop above the current price...

  5. And out of QCOM at .56. And precariously bullish at the moment.

  6. Testing a new way to hedge. Long $11 put on F for .07.

    A 0.5% (systemic) move should break even on this position. a 1% move should cover losses on 1 position. a 2% move (with stops working as expected) should cover the losses of 3 positions...looking for another credit call spread to complete the hedges (surprisingly few today!!!)
