    • Arkeh Capital: Next Friday is expiry; Long only funds that are short put have every incentive to push the stock higher

    • andyk80: What? you said buy under $500 bil market cap.
      12/14/12
    • Ashraf Eassa: Yep. There's not much more downside here. This is the time to cover/go long.
      12/14/12
    • Ashraf Eassa: But when people get all excited above $500B market cap, that's where you short.

    • Ashraf Eassa: Limit order to go long at $500.

    • Maria Auziliadora: AAPL is acting like bipolar x 3

    • Ashraf Eassa: It is. That is why it is so good to trade. People's emotions run wild. The stock is not trading on "fundamentals".

    • Arkeh Capital: Well, even shorties Need Price recoveries in order to replace expiring puts. And short Puts want the stock higher at expiration.

    • Ashraf Eassa: $AAPL, if you play it right, makes $$ for long and short traders.

    • Arkeh Capital: Hence shorties are likely to Close Shorts and to buy out of the money calls (risk Limit) before shorting cash on a higher Level again.

    • Arkeh Capital: That's why it is worthwhile to look for Option activity ...
