Ok. We've got a month-end coming up tonight and IPO tomorrow morning, so let me address this with our developer tomorrow after the IPO. Sorry for the delay, but just trying to be realistic on a resolution for you.
I'll follow up tomorrow with you.

Mike, is it possible for Corolloa, F-series and Ram to go lower than $100?
#66 of 71 Weird profits (or lack thereof)
Jul 01, 2008 (8:35 am)
I noticed that Corolla was down to about 500 dollars just a little while ago. I had shorted 500 shares last night before bed, my total holding. The amount in my transaction list shows that I shorted at a price of 645.30 (the inverse of my transaction list number). When I saw the 500.00 price, I bought 1000 shares. This covered my 500 and purchased an addtional 500 My list shows that I covered/bought at 528.10. The price is now 580.5 and I show a total profit of 22,200 for all this. Since I never 'closed out' of the short before buying, I would expect to see the original profit from my short, but it seems to have disappeared.

Yes, it possible for those stocks to go below $100/share.

You don't see the difference in your overall net worth?

It's a little tough to track now, as I've done other transactions, but the reason I noticed in the first place, was that my percentage dropped slightly after the 1000 share transaction, when I had expected to make about 50k. I sometimes keep 1 share of a stock through multiple buy/sell/short transactions just so I can have sort of a mini total for that stock. The profit/loss number will reset once I hold no more shares of that stock. Immediately after the 1000 shares, my total profit showed about 9,000. I thought it should have been much higher. It turns out that was the profit on the 500 shares I had just purchased, due to my moving the price. Would you like to see the relevant portions my transaction list?

Yes, the transaction list data would be helpful.
