good morning. Deborah Taft and Chad Mazeika continue to hold the top two spots, but Chad continues to gain on Deborah. Deborah's portfolio gained $3,000 in bonus bucks to $2,582,876.30. Her strategy of all cash appears to be working, but her lead is narrowing with only about $224,000 separating her and Chad--which is down from $245,000 on Monday.
Actor Stephen Collins continues to make solid gains each day--and he's very consistent in adding $3,000 a day in Bonus Bucks (so that's why we put in his picture). His strategy is paying off as he builds his lead in "Trading With The Stars." Actor Ernie Hudson is making some buys and sells as is Hall of Famer Johnny Bench--who's still in 9th place, but at least he's staying out of the cellar..
Good morning all. Deborah Taft continues to hold the top position, but she is losing ground. And there's a new number two; Jason Kaplan. Jason gains 2nd place on his Worthington Industries trade forcing Chad Mazeika into 3rd place with only small gains on Mariner Energy and Sonus.

She went all in on Monday with a buy of 300,000 shares of CVTX at $6.75, and it looks like she caught a bottom...
Good morning. Here are the latest names and numbers from Monday's action. Deborah Taft continues in the lead with a portfolio value of $2,216,726.30.

Elan reported a smaller fourth-quarter loss and higher sales Tuesday, citing the expansion of its multiple sclerosis-fighting drug Tysabri as a major factor.
The same rare, but fatal viral infection that forced Biogen Idec and Elan to recall, and recently relaunch, the multiple sclerosis drug, Tysabri, may also be a side effect of Rituxan, also from Biogen Idec and Genentech. In an SEC filing -- not a press release -- and on the FDA website, the companies and the agency disclosed yesterday evening that two people with lupus died after taking Rituxan.
