Getting Short Morgan Stanley - MS
I want to state up front that I am aware that Jim Cramer, he of CNBC's Mad Money, yesterday said Morgan Stanley could double from here. I also realize Ken Heebner mutual fund guru extraordinaire, loves Morgan Stanley as well. I have confidence that John Mack, who runs MS is no different than Fuld, Thain and rest of the choir boyz on Wall St.
That being said, I still need to get short 1 unit here of Morgan Stanley, ticker MS, at $21.75 with a stop at $23.82
Good speculating to you all and never forget that "an investor is a speculator who made a mistake and will not admit it".
