I try to protect myself against Washington, especially Ben's toy printing kit, with little forays into the stock market. Over the years, cautious day trading has financed a gun or two and kept me independent of the Food Stamp program. Some times the results are braggable, some times the opposite. Some times you kiss your sister.
Last week my razor-sharp financial acumen said Lee Enterprises was a buy at $1.89 for a two-day recovery to $2.10. I popped for a thousand and immediately, I mean right now, watched it sink to $1.70. Oh Hell. I just lost a Ruger 10-22 and a brick of .22s.
Monday the world decided something nice was happening to Lee (LEE, NYSE). It recovered. No fool, I got out at $1.91 for a whopping total net profit of $1.96.
