        The $AAPL iPhone 6 Plus is an amazing device. I would be *shocked* if Apple didn't take significant "phablet" market share. Just incredible.

                I tried to short $GPRO in the mid-$60's. Really good thing my broker didn't have shares available to short. Yikes...

                        $AAPL "Bendgate" is nonsense. These phones are very high quality and I'm sure they'll sell well.

                                    $INVN, the strategy here may be to sell puts rather than to take ownership of shares right away.
