  • Why Cimatron Group Is A Stock To Own Now, Before February Earnings [View article]
    Much appreciated. I will write a follow up article describing why this CAD/CAM developer should be treated as a 3-D printing company and how its software aids in commercial/industrial manufacturing.

    A market leader perhaps, The market leader, absolutely not relative to Android devices made by Samsung et al. as seen by market share in countries including Mexico(48%, BGR), Brazil, and India(50%, Samsung alone, Times of India).

  • Should Apple Issue A Special Dividend? [View article]
    Your information is for "qualified dividends" which receive a special tax rate.

    The information in the article was regarding the lower tax rate this year relative to next year, qualified dividend or not.

    There are many institutional firms that use Cor. I am not aware of retail brokers that use Cor. I also do not know if any other clearing firms will follow suit with Cor, but some clearing firms already require 50% margin on all holdings.

    For more info on who Cor serves: http://bit.ly/11T43yV

    Its not only a matter of the individual brokers, ie TDA or Etrade, rather the clearing firms making this decision. Those retail brokers often use 3rd party clearing firms, and must comply with their restrictions as well. As seen with Knight Capitals fiasco months ago, clearing firm decisions and actions can trickle through to retail brokers.

    with AAPL at exactly 540 instead of 550 when I wrote this article, subtract 10 for each strike price and the break evens. All prices and odds will be almost identical if you substitute strike $10 lower for each, since Volatility and Time did not change with any substance over the past hour.

    If you hold calls your calls will increase in value, if the underlying stock increases, based on your calls' delta. Although option holders would not qualify for a dividend, you could exercise to qualify. Just as bond holders would not benefit when a firm pays a special dividend, feel free to allocate your assets accordingly. My firm only trades derivatives, mostly options.
