    $FB is working wonders on the short side. Long $BODY, $TWMC and $WTW.

        STO $FB Jun 65/70 call spreads @3.60. Sky-high valuation won't last, but I don't need bubble to burst, just for $FB to stay below 68.60.

            Overweight $WTW and $EXPR. Still cheap. Was thinking of adding more $BODY and $NTLS but Altman disagrees.

            • Ricardo Espinosa: $NTLS's earnings power is great, also its EBITDA, but the debt is massive. I will add once it goes back a bit for a short-term play.

            • Ketul Kothari: EXPR was one of my biggest winning investments last year when I rode the wave from 11-23. If it falls back to $11, I'm a buyer.

                        $BBRY risk is now to the upside until it gets near $14. Do not short this one...yet.

                                BTO $GMCR Nov 70 calls @1.75 each...holding these until they double, at least. Looks like the gap around 60 won't be filled, up it goes.

                                                    $SPY left a gap up yesterday around 166, short weekly SSO call spreads, I think it fills it, or at least doesn[t continue to climb today.
