  • Enough With The High P/Es, They Don't Matter [View article]
    I was always horrible at picking title lol.... good luck on your trade as it seems like chipotle wants to retrace a bit. I'm on sidelines with CMG, but watch it like a hawk on daily basis. Saving my $$ to get in on the facebook IPO.

  • 7 Attractive Puts To Write For 2012 [View article]
    Schmulik Karpf, you would've sold 10 Jan. 2012 $6.00 put contracts pocketing $1,090. Then today you would buy to cover those 10 for $930, gaining $160 - $30 commission = $130. - capital gains taxes = $100. (granted you would need $6,000 to trade 10 options {obligated to buy 1000 shares at $6.00}, $600 was only for one option).

    Medhanie, writing a put means to "sell" a put, which means you want the stock to go up, which also means that you should give as less time as possible to the put buyer so that you can have the time decay work for you. If you think nflx is going lower, then you buy a put, i think you got confused.

  • The Potential European Debt Crisis You Are Not Hearing About [View article]
    Great article, it'd be even better if the average wages were included for the non-eurozone countries. Poland, which makes up a large percentage of EU's GDP has seen its cost and standard of living rise against Euro countries. I think those who are able, will use this opportunity to hedge.

    I like writers that think outside the box and show alternative problems that the public has overlooked. I wrote an article on PIIGS and how it affects US directly through imports/exports, an interesting piece you might also enjoy, see the link below.

  • 7 Stocks Under $6 Destined To Double In 2012 [View article]
    Haha , whats up fellow Road Runner!! what a small world! It's always good to do quan. and qual. analyses, both don't hurt. For example, RIMM is trading at almost cash, but that doesn't mean it'll go up right? However, I am long BAC with covered calls, waiting for this Eurozone contagion to go away. Few years ago BAC dropped to similar levels and even lower, i risked and bought a lot of call options and boy was i right. This time it will all depend on how US markets will react to Eurozone's contagious debt problems in 2012, although we have our own $13 trillion to worry about. We'll be trading sideways for a long time in my opinion. I also think Buffett's going senile and people usually follow him because he has power and moves stocks, not that he's going to be right all the time. He's talking more about "family love" with shareholders rather than why Berkshire stock retraced to 100K/share. And I'll spell his name right when he can spell my last name right :)

  • Rising Short Ratio Sometimes Means An Exploding Short Squeeze [View article]
    You're actually right on point, in order to benefit from a "possible" short squeeze, I own the BAC outright, but since i'm expecting short term volatility or at least for BAC to remain flat for a while (which it is doing currently due to the European contagion), then you write calls to get that extra income while you're waiting for your BAC stocks to appreciate in value. Hope this makes sense.

    Did you do do any quantitative analysis to arrive at Bank of America near $10/share? and if so, what were your variables?

    Hidden, I am long BAC, and I agree its all about money management, and knowing when to add more to your position by allocating the right amount at every retracement.
