Short Selling?

I have spent much time and money shorting stocks. Forget the fact that it can be excruciatingly painful, even the good was not that good. That is why I respect Rocker Partners, and ex partner and blogger Jeff Matthews .

Now, I rarely short - unless I feel like losing money. But, I am always looking at the market and revist the issue after seeing blow-ups like Portal Player. I smelled a loser here but did not, would not, short. It makes me feel stupid and lazy that I didn't short this.

On the other hand, a pleasant reminder of the reason I don't short is Travelzoo (TZOO). The trend shorts were killing it here, until the stock rocked from 18-45 the last few days.

Not for me!
