  • I hate spam...but I gotta admit, it's kinda funny when Boo gets the penis enlargement junk mail. How did they know?

  • Chambo (CSCO:NASD) is on the tape saying that business confidence is improving. Has he ever 'not' been bullish? Regardless, watch Cisco as a tell here.

  • I will be out Friday. Professor Brodsky will have the con.

  • Keep an eye on the biotechs as a peripheral tech tell.
