August $AAPL options starting to cost a LOT more than July's. http://seekingalpha.com/a/emtv
As it should Richard, if Q3 earnings announcement falls in Aug options expiration period. MM are also pricing in 4th of July holiday.
You're right. Forgot about July 4.

Today's 3% yield on WBA is more like 3.7% with the new dividend hike. Worth looking at. http://seekingalpha.com/a/ee9t

Volatility contango came back big time yesterday http://seekingalpha.com/a/ebc9

I am suprised Spain's yields over 7% didn't get us backward...too many high hopes on the fed.

Sometimes the best investment advice is not to give advice http://seekingalpha.com/a/e2vj
Usually, if not always. Cautioning people or making comments is quite different than more specific advice.
I agree around here. Family and friends can be different.

It's a "new normal' for dividend yields. (Or maybe not) http://seekingalpha.com/a/dlq1

Surprising, but $GDXJ fund flows are positive. Just need Canadian Dollar to rise http://seekingalpha.com/a/dc97

$AAPL options volatility more normal these days http://seekingalpha.com/a/dc4r

Trading futures better than $VXX? Could be. http://seekingalpha.com/a/da8z

Own $AAPL? Got a case of $AMZN "PE Envy?" Relax.... http://seekingalpha.com/a/d3hx

The share price valuation in comparison to earnings must eventually correct though. This time isn't different.

It might take years; to bring down AMZN a massive catalyst will be needed. I'm fine waiting. Long AMZN T puts.

Low volume and very odd technical pattern in AAPL chart http://seekingalpha.com/a/bzqt

So Friday's AAPL max pain point of 560 gets hit after expiration? Hmm http://seekingalpha.com/a/b3h5
Max pain hasn't worked on AAPL for a while. I think the sheer size of the options open int/volume is skewing traditional max pain calcs.
There's a lot of volume out there, that's for sure.

New AAPL weekly options opened for trading today, Really expensive. http://seekingalpha.com/a/ay4x

More VIX futures open than ever. Is there enough volatility to meet demand? http://seekingalpha.com/a/a17n
KK - you're right, can doubt the numbers.
All depends on if the CB Mafia can lull the markets back into goldilocks territory.

Another way to invest in $MCPIQ, with an 8% yield, but there's a catch. http://seekingalpha.com/a/9okx

Lunacy? Could be. But I say $AAPL gets to $2 trillion in 4 years. http://seekingalpha.com/a/9f1l

Wonder if Warren Buffett would have approved of an AAPL buyback like this one? http://seekingalpha.com/a/8gc5

Volatility too low to sell calls? Try shorting stock against a call instead, http://seekingalpha.com/a/7t9v

Looking to buy Corning $GLW, but I'm not likely to chase it if it spikes above 15. http://bit.ly/nlIfDA

Not wild about selling naked calls on GLD, but if you're going to do a ratio spread, pick the right ratio http://bit.ly/pPgXGK

BBRY looks grim for this Friday's options expiration. Lots of high delta puts out there http://bit.ly/lR2S5m

Decided to take a Zen-like approach to Apple. Now I'm truly in touch with my portfolio http://bit.ly/kdrk43

Like to follow implied volatility? Now you can follow implied correlation - on AAPL and other stocks: http://bit.ly/iCBpto
