  • Implications Of Herbalife's Soaring Short Interest Ratio [View article]
    These are hedge fund managers. They always hedge. If he shorted at 42-44, it went down to 24, he would have bought call options for the equivalent amount just in case..
    It is still interesting to see the herd mentality that makes money for lot of people until it plays out and every one is in..I am just waiting for a week, so that the options I sold get exercised..

  • Is The EUR/USD Heading Toward 1? [View article]
    I have been thinking about this for the last 3 months. They have set a target rate for china to $1:$4. By depreciating the Euro to 1:1 against the dollar, they want the same benefits as American $. Now, UK is doing the same.
    I believe that is the only way to pay back the debt with depreciated currency..Way to teach the greedy communists..

  • Diamond Foods: Can It Be Any Better For Trading? [View article]
    Either way, they have to be covered. They could be Naked and I think most hedging is done by buying put options on their existing stock, not through shorting.

    "Can it be any better?" The answer is Yes, Yes and Yes. I was talking about DMND, and just wanted to throw my views on it.
    But otherwise I believe there are safer opportunities in other stocks. I usually, like tiger strategy, I mean pounce on something that moves either way in a short time. Those usually are, FDA approvals, earnings or situations like DMND is in. Thanks for your views.

  • Lockheed Martin (LMT) could face hundreds of millions of dollars in business claims from suppliers if $500B in additional defense spending cuts take effect in January as currently mandated, CEO Bob Stevens warns. The near-term industry horizon is "completely obscured by a fog of uncertainty," he says, calling it a "fiction" that the U.S. defense industry was robust enough to survive such cuts.  [View news story]
    He will build on Infrastructure for Navy. Probably some sea bridge to strike any country any time. ORN should benefit if so... US have run out of enemies that they can war on.
    They have to create fictitious aliens and spend on contracting to defense to fire into other planets...

    I think the recent forced departures of Mid East leaders by enhancing Rebels in exchange for lower oil prices despite dollar weakness will eventually have cheaper oil.
