Happy days are here again for all those holding shares of Micron (MU). The stock has been hanging around the $5 range for months, with the overhang of the antitrust case weighing down on it. Now, after a jury said Micron didn't manipulate prices of dynamic random access memory chips, the stock can get back to its winning ways and out of the trading range. After the winning verdict the stock shot up 23%, most likely on a short squeeze, but it most likely can start to move in a positive direction again with the case resolved.

CNBC's Fast Money regular and co-founder of OptionMonster.com, Jon Najarian, made a very gutsy trade in MF Global today. The stock was said to be on the verge of complete collapse when he stepped in to make the trade. Talk about buying stocks when there's blood on the streets, this was one of those cases.

Jim Cramer is bashed plenty, most famously by Jon Stewart
, but Cramer also knows how to pick stocks from time to time. It's just that he picks so many of them on a day to day basis, with a high degree of enthusiasm, that one is hard pressed to take his word as gospel. And there are just too many unknown factors that come into play, especially in today's market. At times, we're worried Cramer might explode
at some point on Stop Trading he gets so jacked up. Yet that's what we love about Cramer,

What is this company Yippy, though? Yeah, that's what I was wondering. Turns out Yippy is the 'world's fastest, family friendly educational search engine and web portal'. Who knew. I only thought, as far as search engines, there was Google, Bing, and maybe Ask.com. I guess

The news from around the web is that Microsoft made another blunder in their efforts to catch up with Google, Facebook and Apple with the purchase of Skype. And most of the blame is falling on Steve Ballmer - one Yahoo Finance message boarder calling him the 'emBallmer', perhaps as in putting the once powerful Microsoft into the grave with his repeated mistakes as CEO.
