Market Hedges in 3 Different Time Frames Using Options

March 09, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: SDS , SPY , DIA

As the market continues to rise to all new highs of all time, I feel that the market can drop any day now.  Or will it take a few weeks?  Or does the run have another 200 Dow Points in it?   Who Knows?   Anyway, since I really don't know, I will put on 3 different hedges on 3 different time frames. If I am wrong, oh well, my bullish positions should be making me money at the same time.   I plan to use the Butterfly spread as my option strategy for the hedges.    See my earlier post on the Celgene Butterfly for more information on the Butterfly Spread.    [more]

Loved "The Social Network", Will Buy the Stock

March 05, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: FB

I am an active user of Facebook, logging into the Application several times a day(Smart Phone and Laptop) to check my friend's latest statuses, checking birthdays, and even checking the news from my "Likes" of ESPN, the Motley Fool, and the Big Ten Network.   I even owned the stock at one point, getting wrapped up into the IPO where the Facebook stock took a big hit from the opening high of $45.   I bought some shares, then averaged down several times.  When it popped up, I gladly exited with a small profit.   At that time in the fall of 2012, Facebook was lost in how to handle Wall Street, and worse, they didn't know how to make money on the latest and hottest medium - that which is called, "Mobile".     I loved the company of Facebook, but hated the stock and the price action, so I stayed away once I finally got to sell out of it.     [more]

Getting Ready for Speculative Plays In the Next Earnings Cycle

February 24, 2013 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: AAPL , NFLX , PCLN

It is hard to hold stocks through earnings as you never really know which way the stock will run on that day.   The company can destroy on revenues, but miss on profits, or have record profits, but guide lower.  This can be frustrating. Very Very Frustrating.  I find it hard to know which stocks to buy for a good earnings beat, or even if I should hold a stock through earnings.    [more]

Profiting from a Sideways Moving Celgene

February 23, 2013 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: CELG

The fundamentally robust Celgene(NASDAQ: CELG) entered 2013 at $81 and has rocketed up to a high of $102.29 already this year.    On January 8th, The Biotechnology company gave a very rosy outlook out to 2017, and also announced positive trial results for some of its important experimental drugs.    Soon afterwards, the strong bullish push continued with a slew of analyst upgrades.   I believe Celgene will continued a bullish rise from here, but what other catalysts on the near horizon will send this stock to $110?  Are there any other buyers left right now to propel this stock?    [more]
