  • Trade Idea: Keeping It Simple- A Quick And Easy Options Trade On Apple [View instapost]
    I keep AAPL spreads in my portfolio in many way shapes and forms - it is a staple trade for me so the short answer is yes, I will have some sort of AAPL trade going into the announcement. I do think AAPL will be a sell the news event, so my trade will have that factored in.

    Seth, I have exited my entire AAPL directional position - I had the Jan 2013 $600 calls. I hold a decent size position of bull put spreads that start at $600 & below. If we get a decent correction, I would look to reestablish a position, this time using the Jan 2013 $650 calls.

  • A Trade On Huntsman - Low Price And Big Potential [View article]
    Book value is $7.94 - generally there is a premium involved to get the deal done. The point of the article is that the stock has a setup, and if I wind up with a stock only position, in the event of a takeover I believe it would bring more than my base price on the stock.

    Hi David,
    I chose it for a couple of reasons. First, I want to own MMR at $9, therefore I need to have the available capital to cover it if assigned.

    Second, unless you have a super great deal on commissions, they will eat up your profits - remember most folks have to pay a ticket fee plus a per contract fee. A spread would double those costs if you had to exit.

    You've asked the golden ticket question. I have a "stable" of stocks as my go to source, and I also monitor the biggest gainers/losers on the day to see if I can exploit extreme weakness or strength. I look at about 100 charts a day/night to see what is at support, what is at resistance etc. As a for instance, AAPL printed a gravestone doji on the day which could represent the reversal candle. As far as the November AAPL goes, I go as low as possible to get a decent premium for the least risk possible. I'm down in the 560/555 range for .95...here's why. Look at the chart of PCLN on earnings and the day after. That could just as easily be AAPL. Just sayin', don't let juicy premiums lull you into feeling "safe". Your job is to make the most money you can for the least risk available.
