  • Trading Weekly Options With The SPDR Gold Trust And Others [View article]
    Stocks many times move with greater volatility than ETF's - especially the higher priced ones. Kevin, can you give some guidlines on selecting strike prices when considering a reverse iron condor on high priced stocks like AAPL and GOOG. Also, do you take into consideration what the stock has done in the previous sessions i.e. Mon - Wens? If there has been a large more on way or the other during the first part of the week, it seems like this would have bearing on selecting strikes for the trade.

  • Rising oil prices can't kill the retail rally, Stuart Frankel's Steve Grasso says; shorting retailers because of crude gains "has proved to be the worst bet you could have made." Retail's up around 52-week highs (XRT +1.1%, RTH +0.4%) after most of this morning's same-store reports beat expectations, and Grasso expects more of the same through April and May.  [View news story]
    Update from my earlier comment ..... take note of the item posted recently. "There's no recovery visible at U.S. regional malls, as the Q1 vacancy rate jumped to 9.1%, the highest rate since Reis began publishing data on regional malls in 2000, from 8.9% Y/Y and 8.7% in Q4 2010. Stores are still being closed as long-term leases expire, so the bottom likely is not yet in sight."

    Need we say more?

    Not true, not true! The "key" word here is "expectations". When expectations are low, they are easy to beat and novice investors are fooled. Eventually high prices at the pump will definately slow down retail.

  • Boeing (BA) says it's finding other sources to work around quake-related disruption among Tier 2 suppliers in Japan, with no impact on making the 777 and 787 (heavily dependent on Japan). It also is looking at using its 787 supply-chain strategy for a re-designed 737.  [View news story]
    Yeah, like Boeing should really care. They haven't delivered a product on time in YEARS! (Can you say "Dreamliner)

  • 28 Momentum Stocks for Tuesday, And a Shot of Volterra [View article]
    Timmy ..... I have watched Dillard's for years and have come to the conclusion that their shareholders are similar to "cult" followers. Many, many times in the past I have seen the stock trend higher on BAD news. For some reason, people just love this stock .... at least the ones that purchase the shares. Proceed with CAUTION!
