  • 'Smart Money' Is The New 'Large Size' [View article]
    4% growth in revenue vs Q1. conservative Q3 forecast. good indication of business not growing. If they did not include the Groupon Goods 100% revenue recorded vs partial revenue of merchant coupon, the number would be much worse.
    Even the profit beats the expectation, but the profit can be easily manipulated by accounting.

    sell when there is a short squeeze rally as many shorts will cover under $5.

    I am not sure about keeping the stock. sell when there is a short squeeze rally as many shorts will cover under $5.

  • Bank Of Ireland Arbitrage: ADRs At More Than Double Value Of London-Listed Shares [View article]
    last year when this happened, I called the BNY Mellon. and they told me it was becasue IRE filed a S6 with SEC and was pending approval, it ended up with that 1:10 reverse split. I wonder what's going on this time.

    Paulo, if EK does file bk, are you expecting them to file before or after earning release this month?

    the article is about a possible trade if a bk situation happens.

    It is not about the fundamental or the technical analysis of EK.

    The point that Paulo makes here is a common fact that usually happens to a bk stock. Initial shock + short covering+ the hope of some sort of miracle= a quick bounce up.
    It may or may not happen to EK. but if it does happen, the payout can be rewarding. You have to weigh the risk and rewards to decide if you want to risk you money to do this (if it does happen).

    You also need to pay attention about any news regarding how long the company be listed on NYSE. there was news about NYSE allows AMR stay listed right after bk news.

    It will be interesting if EK does not come out and clear the bk rumor in the next couple days.

    Paulo,

    Glad that there is someone using the same strategy I use too. I had $2 put contracts on AMR and made a large profit right after the bk announcement. Then I used the profit to buy AMR at 28c, sold it a few days later at 69c. I didn't sell it at the highest, but it was the easiest quick double ever.

    I actually called the BNY Mellon to ask them to explan why there is such a big premium on the ADR. The person who is in charge of the IRE ADR told me that the only thing he can release to me is that Bank of Ireland is filing S-6 to SEC and it is under review.
