Nice job with Priceline! It hit my 2 year target in 1 month. I'm holding on and expecting big things of it in the future. My new Price Target for PCLN: $350 by Dec 31, 2011.
All the other stocks are up or down slightly and I'm not concerned about them. I am still long all positions except FDX and will seek to buy it again when I see a good entry point. Even GOOG that is down $55 per share is no big deal: it's a volatile stock but I still expect it to hit my profit target -- I'm not selling it.
