$FSLR earnings on deck. Should be a big move either way. I am long call options. Straddles would probably work here.

Still recommend long $FTR before earnings 5/6. Hedge w puts instead of selling covered calls. Primed for a short squeeze.

Wow monster day. rolled some of my $AAPL 565 APR25 calls into 600 MAY02 calls. Going higher folks buckle up

Looks to be a rare situation where volatility is not priced into $AAPL call options before earnings. Disclosure: long 565 weekly calls
4/23/14
I closed my leap covered calls a couple of weeks ago to expect volatility to go up before ER, not the case. Those calls have dropped a lot.
4/23/14
options used to predict 6% move but this time it is only for 4%

Ignore the last 3 bearish SA articles on $FTR. Textbook short squeeze in motion.

$FB mobile payment service is a game changer. Completely on board w/ their management's strategy.

$GOOG 950 calls, what a day. How many times have you seen multiple over 5,000% gainers?

$CMG holding up, however I'm on the Greenlight short bandwagon

textbook short squeeze in motion $BKS..bid from $MSFT coming??
4/10/13
At what price would you buy $BKS now?
watch for heavy resistance @ 17.60....I think we are heading to 21 at least
3/7/13
Alexander Paslawsky
It's pretty ridiculous that Motley Fool publishes a new article almost every day bashing $BKS as the stock continues to rise. #amateurhour

$FB should just buy $BKS for the nook, BOOM
11/1/12

long $CMG $PCLN $GOOG puts...the trend is your friend
not sure if I agree with $GOOG puts before the $FB ipo..comparables make the former a pretty attractive investment w/ mkt cap <2x the latter
