What Would You Do? In this regular segment, Tom and Erin will look at one chart and then ask the question, "What would you do? Buy/Hold or Sell/Short or Leave it Alone. The stock was Guidewire Software (GWRE). Tom and Erin actually took different positions while still agreeing with each other to some degree. Erin was in the bull camp of "Buy" and Tom was in the "SELL camp". Erin's charts are below which she believes solidifies here position. Erin posts the What Would You Do? poll on Twitter to find out what you think. The current Twitter polls are here.
