I very much enjoyed the carnage in Microsoft stock on Friday, and look forward to MSFT returning to the low teens or even single-digits where it belongs. BBRY will make it there first, of course, and it is currently sporting an 8-handle. The world does not need either company.

Excited to see how this week works out. Detroit was worth a full 5-handles on the SPX, but I have a feeling that Portugal and Italy may be worth a little more.
