Good morning all. We're starting this last day on the rough side as more than half of our Million Dollar contestants lost ground Thursday in a volatile market. All of our finalists are fully invested, with the exception of #15, Chuck Chow who is all in cash.

Nancy Beaumont holds first place for the 4th straight day on the 9% gain of Gymboree. Nancy may hold onto the top spot with her almost all-in trade on Verigy, a Singapore-based maker of test systems for the semiconductor industry, which beat estimates after the bell Thursday. Verigy was up almost 10% in extended hours.

Serge Amelyan regains his second place seat on his Gymboree play and hopes to gain ground tomorrow on his Red Robin Gourmet purchase, up almost 5% in extended hours on earnings. Joe Dondero tumbles to 4th place on his Ansoft bet which fell 8.45% Thursday on weak earnings, costing him $123K.
