    You are right, but it depends a little on how you play it. You would assume it was not being assigned...and you can always cover your put. Anyway, with shorting your downside is unlimited, but selling put options limits your downside and provides income.

    GOOG is not going to Zero, at least not in my lifetime,

    Shorting GOOG is very very, dangerous.....I wouldn't do that with your money!

    A better way to play your theme, IMO, would be to sell GOOG out of the money puts

  • At $25 A Share, General Electric Too Good To Miss [View article]
    David: they say "past performance does not guarantee future results?" because their lawyers make them say it.
    And I still believe that the best predictor of future performance is past performance. (This applies to people's performance too, for example in the workplace.) Not always; nothing is "always" a reliable predictor. As the man said: You don't have to be right all the time. You just have to be right more often than you are wrong.
    BTW I am long GE

  • Microsoft And The Benefits Of LEAPS Strategies [View article]
    Selling Puts gives you instant income

    Absolutely, if you get called away on your CC, then you can sell an OTM put, and usually get much more return on your cash than the 'lost' dividend.

  • Apple (AAPL +2%) is rallying for the second day in a row. Jim Cramer is suggesting enough bad news is priced in. "Suddenly the whisper number that is going to be talked about [for FQ3] is going to be so low, that unless they really do badly, they can beat that number ... Maybe Apple everyone is expecting a C, now they come home with a B, we say, Yeah!." Also, UBS' Steve Milunovich argues (in a long-winded note) Apple can maintain premium pricing/margins in spite of intense competition, and that the expected low-cost iPhone "probably won’t be priced below $350-400." [View news story]
    Like BBRY. At 3 they said sell. now at $10 they say buy. Idiots.

  • The rumored iWatch will be more "hobby" than major product line for Apple (AAPL), says Jefferies' Peter Misek. Likely not having a cellular chip, the iWatch would need to be paired with an iPhone for full functionality. Starting with some pricing assumptions and then slapping a 5% penetration on the installed iPhone base of 250M would move the EPS needle by only about 1%. [View news story]
    He's the worst house in a bad neighborhood. All analysts suck IMHO. Self-serving at best. Why listen to folks who do not have your best interest in mind?. You think he is more interested in giving you useful information or making his bonus? Same goes double for mutual fund managers.

  • An appeals court in New York City will consider reinstating a ban on large-sized sugary drinks in the city after a judge previously ruled Mayor Bloomberg's initiative reached too far. Soda selllers (KO, PEP, DPS) will be watching the developments closely. [View news story]
    would you still be able to buy a large size Diet Soda??

    Doesn't Bloomberg have more important fish to fry?

  • "In light of our findings, we find it difficult to side with the bulls at this time," says Citigroup after checks of the Apple (AAPL) supply line. "While we have expected to hear optimism around Apple's forthcoming product refreshes ... (we) were surprised at the skepticism at many points in the supply chain." The field work also suggests a cut in iPad Mini production this quarter to 6M-7M from 8M. Citi has been bearish on Apple for awhile. Shares -0.35% premarket. [View news story]
    I think he was being facetious. (I hope)
