  • Using a Put Spread to Play Concerns Over Bank of America [View article]
    I have no idea what you are talking about. I would never recommend placing all your money in one trade. Why do I need five heads in a row? Your logic seems flawed and basically incoherent.

    I will leave any type of intellectual conversation to people who can understand complex investment strategies and options, which you obviously do not.

    FYI, calling people names is very mature of you.

    The trade was always a long shot to begin with, which is why investors/trades had a chance to make 6.5 times their money. Today's news is an incremental positive for the stock. I still have until January to see what happens with the name.

    I am not sure why everyone is so hostile.

    This trade had the opportunity to make 6.5 times your money if the stock ends up at a certain price by January. We are only in August.

    In addition, trades like this only need to work more than 15% of the time to be successful as an options trader.

  • Pair Trade: Long Concur Technologies and Short NetSuite [View article]
    Most public software companies are compared against each other. Many institutional investors do compare the prospects of SAP versus Adobe or Symantec.

    This trade has nothing to do with owning stock currently. The trade is purchasing 1 of the January 5 puts for $0.49 and selling 2 of the January 2.5 puts - you do not have to be long the stock to use this strategy.

  • Concur: Overlooked Recently Despite Strong Fundamentals [View article]
    My fundamental analysis is a long term view of the space and company. Stocks move up and down daily due to a multitude of reasons, not necessarily company specific ones. Thanks for reading.

    Just because a stock is at its 52 week low (which is what I think you meant to say) does not mean it is a buy. I judge stocks based on their fundamentals. There are very strong reasons the stock is beat up. In addition, this trade costs $0.33 times the number of contracts purchased, so not sure what you mean by my momma's fortune. Thanks for reading.

    You do not need to actually own the stock currently.

    In options, traders or investors can pay for the right to sell a stock under the current price or buy stock above the current price without currently being long or short the stock. One does not have to exercise "this right," but can if the stock moves.

    It is very similar to insurance on a house, a homeowner pays an insurance for the right of protection in case of damage, theft, etc. By buying a put, you have the right to sell at a certain price if you decide to. By writing a put, you have the obligation to buy at a certain price if the holder decides he/she wants to sell to you.

    Yes, there are some transactions costs involved, but these are pretty small if your position is of decent size.

    Considering you have written 3 articles about being long BAC this month alone, I doubt my opinion had any impact on your long-term view of the company.

  • Crocs' Revival [View article]
    I agree that if the stock market crashes, Crocs along with most other high growth stocks will get hit significantly more than lower growth, less volatile names.

    If you believe the market crashes back down to 660, you should short all growth names.

    That said, Crocs is a great growth story and should continue to benefit from its global exposure.

  • Concur: Overlooked Recently Despite Strong Fundamentals [View article]
    If that is what you believe, you should go long Concur and short salesforce.

    In addition, the analysis compares Concur to the "top tier" SaaS names - salesforce, NetSuite, and SuccessFactors.
