    Willly, thank you for your feedback. I will be holding strong. I can't see this not rebounding by years end.

    So even with such a long position you would cut your losses now?

    Sure, and I would close out if I was back even but I am down about $1200 right now do you think this will be back up to at least $130 before the end of the year? I'd like to think yes and not lose $1200 that fast...So for now I think have to hold the position.

  • Apple: Collusion, Competition, Content And Unseating Spotify [View article]
    I am getting a little nervous; although still confident at the same time. I purchased 20k of jan17 call options at a strike of $130 when the stock was at $128 or so. I go from up $500 to down $500 every other week. This is a good chunk of money I plan to use to purchase my first house at the start of next year. My plan was to close out around the 1st of the year, and from all the research I have done, I felt (and still do) at $130 the company is undervalued. I'd like to get some of you seasoned vets opinion because it seems to be stuck so I don't know whether to ride the storm or set a sell order when it hits $130 again. Any advice for a young rookie?

  • Bullish On Financials: Is The Big Bank Pullback Done? [View article]
    I am still confident BAC has a lot more upside. I am holding 2015 calls at $15 and pretty confident in that bet.

  • More Downside Than Upside With These 3 'Safe' Stocks [View article]
    I am not going to sell WM. May not be a growth stock but for the dividend and barriers for new competitors, I feel that I can sleep pretty comfortably with some money in WM. Recycling and trash to energy type of technology will be increasingly important in years to come as well.

    Good article. I know it's a hybrid but NCT has been my best performing holding by far and in my opinion will only get better after the spinoff..

    I would like to ad PM and/or MO to my portfolio but it is the one sector that I will not put any investment into for moral reasons but it kills me that they seem to be good investments!

  • Ford Doubles Down On Its Dividend - But Is It A Smart Buy? [View article]
    I agree F is on sale as of now. I have bet on that with JAN14 calls @ $15. There is a lot of upside from here. With this dividend increase I may actually consider making it a long position down the line. I like to see American companies do well and I have to say that Ford has done an amazing job improving the quality of their new vehicles. Has anybody driven the new Ford Taurus SHO's? I did and I was very impressed with the quality of the car all around.

    Mketrent55, I am sorry to say, but comments like that are what I expect to see on Yahoo message boards, not on SA.

  • Why It's Time To Sell McDonald's Shares Now And Buy On The Next Major Pullback [View article]
    I agree. That is how I play it with the stocks I am long as they all pay dividends. Hold and accumulate more on dips. Brokers WANT you to be the kind of person that buys and sells a lot. Keeps you broke and them rich.

  • 4 Stocks With Significant Short Interest For Good Reasons [View article]
    Ouch on the put option analysis...

    I'll give you some credit though, I also believe GME is and will be slowly dying until its demise. I don't short stocks but if I did, GME & RIM would be my two favorite.

  • 5 Stocks To Buy With Reasons To Rally And Room To Run [View article]
    I have long option positions already up a good deal on BAC, SIRI, & F, well my SIRI and BAC options are.My BAC options are for 2015 @ $15.00 and I plan to hold and maybe exercise later for a long position. However, with SIRI I am starting to feel like it isn't going too much higher anytime soon but who knows. Still a lot of speculation about buybacks and Liberty's plans but it has had such a nice run. Knowing when to take profits is an area I have trouble with as a novice investor.

  • Verizon: A Value Buy At The Current Price [View article]
    I am also long VZ & T. With potential growth in telecom being so huge I see no reason to only stick with one unlike some utility sectors where I have a stock like SO for dividends and have no interest in buy any shares of competitors.
