  • Q: On Fast Money’s trader radar we look at the stock that was lighting up screens across Wall Street. This greeting card company, founded in the early 1900s, flourished during the Great Depression as inexpensive cards were often given instead of gifts. These days the company is taking its greetings online, recently acquiring Photoworks and Webshots Internet photo sites. But the company should have stuck to the model that worked during the century’s worst recession, as losses from its Internet units pushed the shares lower. Who is it?

  • Good morning. There's a new name on top of the contest leaderboard. Serge Amelyan makes a big move from 7th place to the top spot ahead of Parker Robinson--but by only $28K. They are both banking on Linear Tech, their only holding, although Parker is only holding 20,000 shares and remains mostly in cash while Serge is all-in with 89,712 shares.

  • Parker Robinson loses the top spot for the first time since April 5th, falling to second place, and James Kraber is out of the overall leaderboard since he was declared the 6th Weekly Winner! (see earlier post) So--there is a new leader--Kevin Ghasemian Hosein. He and Parker Robinson are both maintaining more than half of their total holdings in cash.
