Leaderboard: Top Two The Same-Taft Makes A Move

Good morning all. Parker Robinson and James Kraber remain in the top two positions, with James holding the 2nd and 4th positions, and remember Deborah Taft? She made a strong move back into third place. Parker's portfolio value stands at $2,796,103.27, up $3,000 from Monday on bonus bucks. Parker stepped back into the fray Tuesday purchasing 50,000 shares or $1,004,500 of Electro Scientific at $20.09, but the stock fell in extended hours on a 46% drop in third-quarter net. Parker is not all-in on the trade, but a poor showing Wednesday of ESIO could cut/cost Parker the lead.

James Kraber maintains the second position with a total portfolio value of $2,724,115.42, up $113,502 from Monday. James won on his gamble with Opnext , making $110,502 on this trade with a 4.23% gain on news that First Albany initiated coverage with a buy and a price target at $16.50. James is now all-in on L-1 Identity Solutions which closed at $17.68, a new 52-wk high. James' 4th place portfolio is currently all-in on Evergreen Solar .

As we said, Deborah Taft also became active again as she moved from 4th to 3rd with a portfolio value of $2,604,995.45 with a slightly different strategy. She has not gone all-in but has spread out her risk amongst 9 holdings:

Salix Pharma
