  • The Beauty Of The 'Neutral Calendar Spread' Using Weekly Options [View article]
    The increased time should help if placed earlier in the week. Since more time will be priced into the option you will collect a higher premium. However, just with anything else, higher reward is accompanied by higher risk.

    Veilside,

    I agree, though these stocks go through swings like everyone else, people still keep multiplying, and still need to eat.

    look sunny, I mean c'mon. I'm not here to argue with you. I'm saying I see value in Potash, thinking it will go up...You commenting saying you thought it was going to two bucks would leave one with the impression you aren't long the equity.

    I never said it can't go lower, in fact I specifically said they could, "It's true these companies could fall back to their 2011 lows, but I feel there is much more upside potential than downside risk."

    I'm long the stock and from here it could easily trade lower, very easily. Though personally I don't think it goes to $2. This will be my last post to you, considering the topic is of near irrelevance.

    Thank you

    Bbay, agreed. I looked up to Chris when I was new to SA. While I know more people will comment to hate rather than to praise, I thought it could have been handled in a better manner as well. However, everyone is entitled to their own opinion and therefore can express it as they will. I messaged Chris explaining that I was a new writer and have things to work on, this I know. Beginning to write on SA I knew I would receive harsh recourse from some, and thus have a thicker skin to it, as you have said. Thank you.

    Sunny

    I guess I am confused with your logic..you are holding a stock that you believe will trade into the single digits? From a stock price currently at 42? Why not short it if you feel this way? Pot is not in the Dow Jones, so it makes it slightly less relevant, unless you are referring to market direction in general. Clearly I wrote about a stock that had been beaten down, not flourishing in the last nine months, hence why it has under performed the broader market.

    All trading is not speculation. RIMM traded so high because it toted the famous BlackBerry, which was the most popular handset several years ago. Now with iPhones, tablets, and Androids, RIMM has severely fallen behind, which is why its infamous fall is warranted.

    To everyone who has and who will say I'm using a mere 1 liner to count global population with Facebook..I'm not! I did not compare it to any of the companies, nor use it anywhere else in the article.

    If I had written "200 years ago, there were less than 800 million people on earth, today there are over 7 billion." No one would have a problem with this, all I did was a make it a little more visual so it's easier for readers comprehend. Also, it is not a measure of anything, simply showing just how rapidly we have grown over those two centuries.

    sorry sunny, POT is not RIMM. Apple has not behaved like this before, so does that make it logical to assume it will go $10,000? How about $5? Strange price action does not lead simply lead a company to essential bankruptcy.

    Chris,

    Let me begin by saying I know and respect you as one of the of the most informed individuals in this sector. Which is why you blatantly ripping me is partially acceptable, even though I feel like you took some things out of context.

    Let me say however that the FB statistic was not meant to "signify" the worlds population, just putting into perspective how rapid the world population is truly growing. Also referring to more crop, I was not signifying a surplus or over supply of food, simply that with increased demand in food, which is inevitable, they will need more supplies to do the job.

    Son,

    That is fine that you disagree. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. However, just because I did not include a chart does not mean I failed to include CF Industries.

    Happy trading,

    Bret

  • Qualcomm: A Winning Play From Apple's Success [View article]
    bhspitbull,

    Thanks for the comment, and yes they do trade differently. Apple has made a significant run since they reported earnings last January. While Qualcomm has enjoyed gains this year, they are not the type Apple has had. However, with Apple's continued success, there will be others that do very well too, such as Qualcomm.

  • ConocoPhillips: A Smart Way To Trade Oil [View article]
    Just read your post in stock talks War-in-middle-east. I agree that something is inevitably likely in Iran, which is why I am trading ConocoPhillips. They trade extremely well with oil, and in the event something does happen, that is the trade with a lot of upside, and limited downside. Thanks for reading and commenting.

    Sorry Bill. What I mean is that the OPTIONS price in USO is higher, because it has a higher implied vol. The higher the implied vol, the higher the price will be, since volatility is price into a securities options price.

    Hope this helps you,

    Bret.
