  • Bullish Play On Apple Into 2013 [View article]
    Please re-read the article, I suggested the $500 call strike was the one to go with. That's not out of the money. It's Deep in the money.

  • Bullish Play On Apple Into 2013 [View article]
    Guidance was lower than the street's expectations (albeit they are typically conservative) and the lack of a new product release this summer is what holding the stock back. Look for a push just before the buyback program and iphone 5 release.

  • Bullish Play On Apple Into 2013 [View article]
    Apple goes lower from here (at least to 560). You will know when institutional order flows are back in the game by looking at the weekly charts and their respective volumes.

  • Odds Favor A Big One-Day Upside After Apple Posts Earnings [View article]
    Thank you for the well thought out and detailed analysis. The market conditions are extremely volatile and because we are technically in a correction, I think it's best to sit on the sidelines. I would much rather wait and see the price action post earnings, and then make a play (long or short) based on that.

  • 3 Signs The Market Rally Will Likely Continue Next Week [View article]
    The market is clearly in a distribution phase, just look at the S&P chart. If that's not enough, look at how some blue chip stocks have sold off after reporting solid numbers. Take notice and protect profits.

  • Time For A Rush On Eldorado Gold? [View article]
    When it comes to gold, the question you ultimately have to ask yourself is this: would you rather own the company digging for it, or would you rather own the rare element itself? The latter has proven to been the more prudent investment. Until that changes, stay the course.

    After hours trading today suggests another possible test of 10 dma, now 603.95, tomorrow. If trend continues, it will pose another buying opportunity to capture new highs.

  • Baidu: A Play On Apple In China [View article]
    I personally like the May 140 BIDU calls: It's currently priced at $13.60. It could double if last year's highs are reached in April.

    Following with an update: Yesterday, March 26, Apple again touched its 10day moving average at around 597.50. It bounced off and is now making new highs (613.40) repeating the trend since its January earnings date.

  • Apple: Looking For A Good Entry Point? [View article]
    Absolutely, and he yet again did another chart on CNBC when Apple was trading near 600 saying the same thing he reiterated on that outside day. The "fundamental" flaw in his analysis is that the chart covers too long a time frame (many many years). There were years in that chart where Apple made little to no money (sounds shocking, but Apple wasn't too successful before SJ's return). The point is, you can't compare how Apple traded 10 years ago, when it made no money, to how its trading now, when its one of the most profitable companies of our era. The chart's analysis only goes back to the Jan. 25th earnings gap up. Great earnings, great mark up. But even in the amazing ride up, there were pauses and that was the time to get in. The two indicators I mentioned hope to give investors an edge in predicting those pauses.

  • Apple: Looking For A Good Entry Point? [View article]
    Correct, and I wouldn't mind it flagging in that area. The information contained in this article is also integral to those who buy options, especially as a play on earnings. Each day that passes causes a depreciation in value as a result of time decay (theta). If I know Apple could be the same price a week from now, I would obviously purchase the call at that time as opposed to now. Also, a market pull-in might cause Apple to come in more and touch its 20 day. Its basically a wait and see approach. Undoubtedly, one should not buy when the stock price significantly diverges from its 10 day as one can see in the chart.
