"Like There's No Good Economy Ever Coming Back."

Craig Hodges

Hellacious last few minutes of trading there -- way up, then way down. And for a local perspective on the way-ups and way-downs of the stock market, one need look no further than 2905 Maple Avenue, where Hodges Capital Management is managing some billion dollars in assets, which used to be a lot of money. Craig Hodges, the firm's president and portfolio manager, sums up the day's events thusly: "The last 10 minutes today were as crazy as I've ever seen. These stocks are trading like there's no tomorrow, like there's no good economy ever coming back." Comforting, like a warm blanket on a snowbound morn. --Robert Wilonsky
