First, I hope that me good friend Ragin Cajun is boarded up well in his home state of Louisiana before Gustav touches down in their area. Better if he move to safer ground.
Every now and then comes a moment when either we decide to stand aside or put our money where conviction is. This is one of those moments when I just have to put my money where my mouth is. I'm currently loaded with stocks and the current month call options on several hurricane stocks in preparation for the coming of Gustav to the gulf area.
This is a very calculated move where if I'm right, it will add plenty to my gains this year and if not, well, I will give up about 1/4 of my gains this year.
