    Executives are unlikely to want a share price to go down during a buyback. Executives are not a majority owner (typically).

    It's just very strange for someone to just have discovered "podcasts" as they have been around for over a decade? It's not like this is some new tech.

    Ooh good reminder on Young Frankenstein... would you believe I have never seen that ? =/ Need to put it on the list.

    Never saw Get Smart either... though I figure Inspector Gadget was pulled from that and I did watch that as a kid.

    And The Beatles are 7 years earlier than mine.

    Mel Brooks at least overlapped. And God bless that man for Blazing Saddles, even if it was before my time.

    Too much :P lol

    Yeah premiums were pretty crazy EOY last year. Even the $3.50's are down considerably.

    Premiums on the $2.50s are a few pennies here. Almost makes sense for me to roll forward now and take a hit of a few cents on the larger lot. Even the $3's look attractive long side for 1 year of time.

    It's what happens when the stock goes a whole year and consolidates, I guess.

    Take analyst targets as points where they would change opinion, not as "this is where the stock is definitely going to go." I think people make that mistake far too often... assuming an analyst's target is where they think the stock will be for sure in 12 months exactly...

    I think one can be less careful with 2015 than with 2014.

    I still would not suggest ATM or OTM options except with fun money. Heck even my $3's are a very small position and those were ITM / ATM at purchase.

    AAPL was attractive at $400. I wouldn't be a buyer of AAPL here from an investment standpoint. Trade, sure.

    I can't fathom why you can't do spreads. They are the same class as a covered call. If you can go long a call then there is no reason they should keep you from writing a strike higher up against it. It's actually more conservative with lower risk... If they won't let you do an ITM spread but will let you do a straight OTM call buy then I'd find another platform.

    I wouldn't expect them to let you do a cash covered put write if they won't let you enter a spread.

    Only dip I see from here is to fill the little gap a few pennies below on an intra day basis. Got my buy set $3.42... figure it comes before the end of the year.

    Jan 2015 was $5 area (more specifically $4.85) sell target. Same as $4.25 for Jan 2014. It's the target at which I would change my position and sell out from hold and add under the 50 day MA.

    SIRI has hit my "sell" point, roughly, twice in the last 5 years. $2.40 in 2011 and $4.18 in 2013. Anyone and everyone should have easily been able to sell at $4.17 in Oct of 2014 if they chose, especially considering $4.25 for Jan 2014 was an entire quarter away.

    Likewise SIRI has hit my strong buy areas 7X (other than the obvious 2/2009) 12/2009, 8/2010, 10/2011, 2-7/2012 4,10,12/2014.

    I'm not sure anyone is interested in my targets :) Not many sold in 2013 near $4.18. Most were happy to sell out in 2014 for far less. (and still more are "just waiting for it to hit $3.60 again so I can sell out...") Next time it gets to where I would consider selling I would expect the same :)
