Sunday Investment Club

Now that's more like it. Guess who had the best porforming portfolio last week, gang? That's right. Me. Austin Carr, fictional stockbroker. My BankAmerica calls soared, and I sold at a profit of almost $2,400. And with bank news turning somewhat positive last week, Corkface's HBC puts (he switched mid-week) lost value, so Grandma and I really closed the gap.

Late last week, I bought an oldie but goodie, Image Entertainment (DISK) for $1.27 a share. It closed Friday at $1.43, and I think I'm going to get $2.75 a share for this puppy in two weeks when an already announced merger concludes. The merger's had a few ups and downs, but we think (unlike the market) that it's going through.

Corkface remains bearish. We think most stock prices have bottomed.

Join us anytime. Just leave your picks in the Comment section. You have $10,000 to spend.

Ok, then I have spend another $2,500 of my $2,700 in cash and buy another 2,000 DISK this afternoon at $1.25. Nobody believes this merger. What are we missing? Stock's worth a buck without Mr. Black, as DISK has other suitors lined up. Not to mention a growing business.

Somebody knows something that we don't believe is possible because we know something that we think no one else knows except us... and so on. We have seen this before.
