  • Chesapeake Granite Wash Trust Revisited [View article]
    I am wondering where I can find distribution estimates beyond 2nd qtr 2017 if possible. If not what factors would you assume make the distribution beyond that greater or less than say 35 cents? I expect natural gas to grind higher very slowly longer term but see lots of volatility in between. Perhaps a range between 3.25 and 5 for 2014. Will this do better if gas prices spike or is it still too early? I should understand these better, and thought I did but the market has obviously proved me wrong. What are your thoughts on CHKR versus say SDR, ROYT, PER, and ECT?

    I am looking to add to Corning again at these levels. Looking at November call spreads.

    I took my money out of this spread today. I sold roughly 60% of my position and now my remaining spreads are on with zero risk, or the houses money.

  • Options Trading With My Three Favorite Consumer Discretionary Stocks [View article]
    No there is a covered put under it, maintenance is $500 maximum. Both of the brokerage accounts I use only lock up $500 for each spread I am short. $15 - $10 = $5 x 100 shares = $500. You cannot lose more than $500 but you receive premium so it's even less. By the way, where are you getting that it's 2 years? The options are January 2012.

    Yes I made a typo. As you can see the percentage calculation reflects a return of $300 from the spread. I will contact SA and see if they can edit that to avoid confusion. Thanks for the catch.

  • How I'm Buying Into the Market Correction [View article]
    Etop, I use several brokers. It depends on what you are looking for I suppose. Do you want tools, price, fills, etc...? I use TDA/TOS for equities and options, OptionsHouse for large option orders, and OptionsXpress for futures.

  • How I'm Playing Qualcomm [View article]
    The $8 credit was as of close Friday.. As of yesterday's close the net credit was roughly $4 for the May ratio... I assume there may be a chance to get in this morning (Tuesday) for slightly a higher net credit judging by pre-market...

  • A Detailed Options Trade for a Potential Apple Reversal [View article]
    Apple is a great company, which is one of the reasons I didn't mind having the shares put to me for 200.. Not that I usually sell puts more than 60 days until they expire, but I am tempted to buy the July 200 put options and sell 2 of the July 190 puts against each one for a net credit of $220 per ratio spread.

  • A Detailed Options Trade for a Potential Apple Reversal [View article]
    Thank you for the comment and sorry I have not got back sooner... Once the bearish pattern was voided on March 4, 2010 (near the close, when it looked like Apple would finish the day above the open price from March 2 - which it did) I decided to close one of the 200 put option contracts, and the 210 put option contract from each of the ratio put spreads I opened, leaving the same amount of naked Apple put contracts open as before just raising my break even point if the stock ended up trading lower. I took a realized loss at that point of about $80 per ratio put spread but assuming Apple closes above 200 per share at March expiration I will lose much less and just about break even (after commissions).
