Inventory of likely short-sale properties, like the devil’s uncatchable herd of cattle in the song "Ghost Riders in the Sky," is outrunning the ability to catch up. Or is it?

In the song, a large posse of "ghost rider" cowboys, with a "mournful cry," are forever chasing the devil’s herd but can never catch it. As the cattle come rumbling through the ragged skies, an old cowpoke, resting on a ridge, hears one of the cowboys call his name.
