SPX made another new all-time high yesterday, breaking above 1991! FB made a new all-time high as well. We locked in a nice overnight gain of +160%! We cashed out on FB August calls and used the profit to buy cheaper weekly calls, which brought our risk down to "0"! LNKD calls also did well yesterday!

The major market indices were little changed:

HGX (housing) tumbled 2.73%. BTK (biotech) pulled back 1.53%. SOXX (semiconductor) fell 1.53%. FDN (internet) and IGV (software) gained about +1%. GLD (gold) fell 1.01%.


It looks like Nasdaq is testing the recent high. 4500 could be a tough resistance for Nasdaq to break. Last night's earnings were mixed.

AMZN is down more than 10% after reporting a quarterly loss! AMZN share price targets were lowered by many analysts! V traded lower after giving a lower-than-expected revenue forecast. DECK shares traded higher by more than $5 reporting a solid quarter and raising its guidance! SBUX trade about 2% lower even after beating its earnings estimates; its guidance was a bit soft. MLNX traded up by +6.44% after delivering earnings that were inline with the estimates. Z and TRLA both jumped higher on rumors that Z is in advanced talks to buy TRLA for $2 billion! Z vaulted +15% and TRLA popped +32%!

The market indices may need to take a pause, but, it seems like there are lots news stocks to make this a busy Friday!
