    Well a couple weeks ago , the Gazette published an article about how attractive RIMM was, so I decided to apply contrarion investing and bought 780 $60 rimm puts contracts..

    It was our wedding money, but I thought if I won I woulda threw the wedding in Vegas.

    My wife thinks I'm a compulsive gambler? What should I do?
    BTW why is RIMM manipulated?

    I don't know if you are compulsive or not....
  3. I don't think you are a compulsive gambler at all, but that was indeed a big gamble.

    The application of contrarian investing strategy may be a bit off. RIMM was already down $20 from it's 52-weeks high in last quarter. A contrarian investor would most likely buy RIMM rather than sell RIMM.

    I personally think fundamental need to be considered before an investment decision is made. Contrarian strategy alone is risky.

    Also, it would be a good idea to view the money you put into the market as gambling money that you will never get back.

    I hope things work out between you and your wife.

  4. A pathetic post. The Duke would never put his name on such spineless dribble. Please grow a pair before executing another trade.

    Rennick out :cool:
  5. If you aren't already married to her she isn't your 'wife'.
  6. Well, you probably had a good run anyway.

    Cut me some slack.
    Back in 2000 I bought Enron and my ex-girlfriend broke up with me .

    Why do I have such bad luck!
  8. Do you really think it is luck?
