In case you haven’t been keeping score, here’s the tally.Monday:

Microsoft announces a major investment in Barnes & Noble, sending shares of the Nook maker into the stratosphere.  Whitney Tilson went long BKS last Tuesday.

Tuesday:

David Einhorn jumps on the Herbalife earnings conference call.  Shares of the nutritional products maker instantly tank thanks to his mere presence.  It’s unclear if Einhorn is short HLF.  But given his doubts, he’s more likely short than long.  At the very least, he got confirmation that his words move markets.

Wednesday:

Green Mountain Coffee slashes guidance and announces huge write downs on their inventory.  David Einhorn has been one of the most vocal shorts on the K-cup supplier.

Whitney Tilson was just on CNBC reminding the world that his firm T-2 Partners was also short the stock.

That’s it so far. 

But, it’s only Wednesday.
