Twitter feed Doug Kass announced he was shorting Groupon: "I am short Groupon today" he said in a Tweet below. And it looks like it was a wise move, as the stock was hanging around $30 a share only to drop down to $26 at the close.

Every now and then Doug Kass, of Seabreeze Partners and The Street.com, and more famously known through his frequent appearances on CNBC's Fast Money, will refer to his legendary 'gnome' sending him some kind of message. He'll tweet something like, "My gnome is hearing now..." or "My gnome is telling me...". So, who exactly is this gnome.
