What the heck is going on with FMD today?

FMD is up almost 17%. I own fmd from 38 and 12 and I have pretty much given hope about getting any of my money back. So, I wasn't following it and today its up 17% and I can't find a substantial news. Short squeeze - probably. But, didn't we already have one just some time back? I need to do some research again.

Earnigs play - AEO

Aeo is going to report earnings today. I was thinking of buying calls of aeo yesterday but refrained.
Oil price has taken its tall on this stock as it has in other retails. Still its a Recognized Brand, stock is trading with low and Currently at nearby 52 week low. Also, Insiders are buying and holding.
It would be interesting to see how it plays today.

With low pes and good profits, I am tempted to take more positions in solars. Though, I really feel an urge to short fslr. Here is a link that I got from yahoo message board.
With LDK providing some strong future -
it looks like solars are going to have some rally today. I have already bought sept 20 call of SOL.

NTRI is holding pretty well. Probably short covering or company buyback or may be both! Regardless, its working well for my portfolio :)

Bought two calls of NDAQ yesterday. The PE is really low and company is definitely making profit.
JAN 35 for 2.95 + brokerage
SEP 35 for 1.1 + brokerage

Both the calls are in green now and I hope I recover some of my loss through these positions.

Its a "who sucks faster" game

Earnings are over for all the positions I have - pretty much got crushed in every position so far. Although I did make some profit on the puts that I had bought to hedge on my positions. SuckerList

SMSI, - Took loss and sold some position.
IMMR, - Took loss and sold some position.
FMD, - I have a huge loss. Can't even think of selling it now.
ENT, - Not quite sure whats up with this company. Just holding 100 shares at $550 loss.

Short -
AMZN(Among all the stocks - why did I short only this one?)

Ok - I still believe market will go up .... someday!

NYX - A Bizarre Stock

All those people who are trading nyx for a while know how bizarre this stock is. This is the screenshot I had taken today in premarket. How many times have you seen bid price more than ask price?
