Hmmm......... guess we'll have to wait and see if this has any effect on their products in the future.  It's always a gamble when someone new takes over.

Starting? The Dow and S&P has been on fire since the beginning of March. I feel like I missed the boat. Selling out my remaining positions, don't know where to jump back in yet. Playing earnings is a recipe for disaster but nothing looks cheap at the moment.

Yeah the guys at Basin Sports / Out of Bounds in Killington thought Holden was still pure. Took me a bit to convince them that it was under K2's umbrella.
