    I'm going to let things settle a bit before I do anything but am thinking about buying some January or April 2013 calls with a $25 strike price.

  • 5 Momentum Stocks With Pullbacks That Could Be Your Opportunity  [View article]

    Like many others, I'm just as baffled as you are with the continuing drop of QCOR, however, it is a huge momentum stock and I expect it to recover and be back over $50/share by the end of the year. I'm in around $43/share and have no intentions of selling. In fact, I'm considering buying more. I suppose the Citron report has a lot of people running scared but the fundamentals are there and I don't see a generic being a realistic alternative anytime soon, if ever.

  • 3 Pharma Companies Expected To Demonstrate Significant Growth During The Second Quarter  [View article]
    I've been long both QCOR and SPPI for a while now. Can anyone explain why QCOR is down today given it's positive earnings report? I'm stumped.

  • Today's Market News To Trade On: 5 Stocks Moving On News  [View article]

    For those of us making spec plays on FB related stocks like RENN and ZNGA, how quickly do you think these stocks will come back down after their surge? I feel good that these holdings will have nice gains tomorrow but I'm not certain when I should sell. Any thoughts?

  • Stocks Worth Buying Prior To Earnings: Week 4  [View article]
    Spot on analysis with Zagg. Perhaps I am being naive but Zagg seems like a no brainer for a spike after earnings like the one we saw this week with CRUS. Volume on Zagg is up today suggesting people are getting wise to the Apple effect but I'm going to wait and see if there's a pullback early next week before purchasing.

  • Finding Opportunity In Small Biotech Companies  [View article]
    Bought QCOR around $41 on Tuesday and it's trading over $43 today. Volume has been rather low since it's nice Q1 earnings report Tuesday night, suggesting that it's not too late to purchase the stock.

  • Baidu On Sale, Limited Time Offer  [View article]
    Nice article Jamie. I agree that Bidu is a bargain right now but I was hoping to hold out for a pullback to $125 before purchasing. Do you think that's too ambitious? Also, do you have any opinions on the less established Chinese internet services Dang and Renn?

  • 4 Speculative Stocks That Are Safer Than You Think  [View article]
    I've been following XIN since March and regret not buying it below $3. I'm hoping that it will pull back again but may purchase tomorrow before the ex-dividend date.

  • Questcor Will Soar If Drugs Can Breach New Markets  [View article]
    Thanks for the article Frank. Very interesting. I agree with Icahn, assuming he's implying that there's plenty of room for growth based solely on Acthar and a marketing push. I'm planning to purchase as soon as we come out of this market correction or I see an increase on heavy volume.

  • Dangdang (DANG) announces the resignation of CFO Conor Chia-huang Yang for personal reasons. (PR)   [View news story]
    II don't think it's a coincidence that the CFO resigned 2 weeks after DANG made its annual SEC filing. The stock might be a worthwhile short term hold, however, if the price drops precipitously over the next few days.

  • What's Better? Dividends Or Covered Calls  [View article]
    Selling puts is a nice strategy as well, especially in the current bull market, but I'd recommend only selling one for a stock you'd like to own...

    What online brokerage account do you use? is the cheapest I've found for options trading. $5.50/contract. Anyone know of a site that's cheaper?
