Hungry for PROFITS? ~ SHORT FOOD! ~ Tyson Foods, Inc. (Public, NYSE:TSN)

check the charts.   most "food stocks" are at or near their 52 week lows ... the "people still need to eat in a recession" logic is not the issue.  people will continue to consume edibles, but these are stocks, pieces of paper that GO LOWER!!!  ....  speaking of pieces of paper, are any of you SHORT $KMB? ... i know its boring.  butt. it works.  twice daily.  isn't that what this is all about?  bringing home the bacon!! 

~ hmmmm, why are "our" food shorts not on lows? (DF, TSN, PNRA) ... why am i so stubborn?  we should've just gone with the "trenders" like $K, $KFT, ... note to self: remember "the easiest trade usually is." 

p.s. ... 0o0pPss,  forgot to add $KFT to the picture. doh!   

p.p.s.  what's for dinner?  pick another restaurant to SHORT.  EAT? CAKE!?

as for $FAZ and $47 today. missed by .06 cents. cost "the team" HUGE gains. let's all follow the charts. not some random number we "think" has value.

we watched as WFC hit $15, and on numerous attempts, it couldn't break through. problem was when WFC was at $15 , FAZ was at $50. and we stubbornly wanted it lower.

.....hmmm, we still "think" WFC and BAC can run up a bit, and thus, FAZ would get below $47. maybe our patience will pay off. we'll see. (still we missed a hell-of-a day trade in FAZ today, my bad folks)

game on.
