Tomorrow I'm calling the Sunnyvale manager to see if he can help and then if he can't I need to file forms to claim my loss. The other thing that bugs me is that I paid $170 for four tickets, but the value of these tickets (as determined through eBay auctions) would be close to $400!
Anyways, here's my 2005 updates on various financials.
Stocks (NTE, LB, EBF)
2005: Total costs of $286 and total revenues of $549 for a return of 91.95%
Sports betting (NCAA's and previous betting)
2005: Started with $160 and ended with $253 for a return of 58.13%
So far things are looking pretty good, although I doubt I will bet on sports for awhile (I usually stick to NFL and NCAA's, but I might go with some NBA playoff games/series).
With eBay, I will continue to look for items to sell.
Stocks- I think I can add to my gains through reinvestment of dividends, finding more stocks, and writing calls.
