  • Trading Apple Using My Daily Options Strategy: Spotting The Lows [View instapost]
    FYI, Kevin didn't create this account, I've been reading/trading his stuff for months, have there been losses on his trades sure, but to be 100% honest at one point in time they were all winners, how an individual decides to manage their own trades is up to that individual person. I just don't see where your argument has any validity. If there is, was, or ever will be any one person who could guarantee a retail trading strategy I assure you they wouldn't be writing about it here. The author has a passion for the markets and options trading. He writes his OPINION and OFFERS his advice. Lastly, I haven't been on here in days and am shocked at how much time you have on your hands.

  • The Growth Story Of Facebook From A Macro Perspective [View article]
    Oh and last but not least, the company knows everything about you already so they have the largest advantage over their target (customer/user) that any company has ever had on their customer. They will know exactly what to recommend to you based on every picture, status, wall post, or like you have ever posted. Here is an example for me, FB already knows on Friday after work/class I enjoy a few drinks and a round of golf. In my "product/service" feed FB recommends a new taylor made club they already know I want, and a groupon of sorts to any country club within 10 miles of my location (remember it is on my phone to so they know where I am).

    This is what I see in the future for FB, and I'm sure they are already working on this and we will see it within 12-18 months of their IPO. And if they aren't doing this, I should probably go work for them.

  • The Growth Story Of Facebook From A Macro Perspective [View article]
    Husky, here is my take on FB and why I think at some point it is going to be a one of the most high flying stocks that the street has ever seen, by the way I want to write an article about this as well. In my opinion the revenue will not be in advertising dollars but in fees. Fees of what sort you ask? Subscription fees? No, nobody would ever pay for FB. Imagine a world where you log onto FB and and B2C happens right in front of you. I envision an AMZN type feed that is beside your news feed recommending products that an algorithm has already determined you have a statistical chance of buying. Fees in the form that EBAY collects on a transaction.

    Fees Part Two: Imagine logging on to FB and being able to manage your finances, possibly your portfolio, pay your bills, hell even make trades, possibilities are really endless. Though partnerships with thousands of different companies, I see FB being a way that companies reach consumers.

    The original idea was to bring the social experience online, the future I see is brining your entire life online. This may take time because older generations may be hesitant/ have no clue how to do this, but our generation (I'm a senior at BU) and those younger then us will very much have the capability and will have grown up already living life through FB. The revenue generation for being the middle man between tens of thousands of companies and about a billion people could be astronomical.

  • Apple Likely To Miss Earnings Estimates [View article]
    I read a stat that nearly 75% of AAPL users buy iPhones inside of an AAPL store, this number is not reflected in the sales of carriers. Not sure if there is truth to this number but if so it may skew sales up or down.

  • It's Official: Mr. Market Believes Apple's Growth Story Is Over [View article]
    Very interesting article, however, if this company continues to produce technolocy that changes the way humanity transmits information there could be continued growth on the income statement.

  • A $20,000 Options Portfolio To Trade Earnings: Week Of Jan. 3 [View article]
    The state or fact of being ignorant : lack of knowledge, education, or awareness.

    I will in turn applaud Mr. O'Brien for his ability in keeping up with first off his own account, second, all of his very educational and profitable articles, and lastly the hundreds of comments and questions I can imagine he receives every week. I have been reading and trading on his advice for a few months and have done very well. His creditability is very much intact in my opinion.

    Thanks again Kevin.
