  • Armour Residential Slumps After Earnings Release [View article]
    Thanks for the link. It is odd because it is materially different from the simple calculation:

    Equity - $2,708,798,000
    Common - 374,053,198 shares
    BV per Share = $7.24

    Do you know the reason for the variance?

  • Armour Residential Slumps After Earnings Release [View article]
    What is the source for your book value calculations? They differ from those calculated from the 3/31/13 10Q.

  • Can T-Mobile And These Catalysts Boost Apple Shares? [View article]
    All strategies were based on a price of $461.91 (the close on Friday) as indicated in Scenario 2, which is less than one percent where Apple is currently trading. As discussed these are buy-writes, i.e. covered calls.

  • Will Institutional Support For J.C. Penney Vanish? [View article]
    When JCP is trading below $15 I am seller of $14 short-term puts. The company's fortunes will not deteriorate that quickly and there are more potential positive catalysts than negatives.

  • Will Institutional Support For J.C. Penney Vanish? [View article]
    Thanks for the breakdown. I take this standpoint - what else can go wrong for the company? I have been selling SHORT-TERM out of the money puts since the abysmal quarter and so far the strategy has worked. I believe there is so much negativism that the downside is limited in the short-term.

  • More on the Galaxy S IV: Samsung continues doing everything it can to differentiate itself via software, even as the OS and many of its core apps for its hardware are provided by Google (GOOG). The S IV features a text/speech translator (9 languages), the ability to transfer data from any phone witha PC's help, a health-tracking app that can leverage the phone's pedometer and sync with blood pressure monitors, and the ability to control home electronics via infrared. There's also Samsung's eye-tracking and touch-free gesture tech (as rumored). No kitchen sink just yet. (live blog[View news story]
    This is really a Galaxy S III Version 2.

  • Apple Needs To Spend Cash On R&D, Not Special Dividends [View article]
    Your argument that Apple is trailing in innovation by citing battery life is quite flawed. At this point in time battery life is largely a function of battery size and Samsung simply has a larger battery in its phone.
