        $GLUU 2500 contracts of April $4 calls exchanged hands Thursday. Smart move.

            Thinking of shorting $TQQQ (long NASDAQ) and $SPXU (short S&P)... I profit from a convergence of S&P and NASDAQ and I bank the decay.

            • mtt5010: Was thinking about doing the same; decided against. The jobs report will be released Friday. Expectations leaning towards positive results.

            • platonicbomb: Actually I would be betting both for and against the market... for the SPY and against the QQQ.

                $MU Bought April 19 22, 24, 28 calls. Don't think it will hit 28 but think the 28s will increase by greatest % on the 4th.

                • platonicbomb: Exited all but April 25 $24 calls. Hard to predict. Lost a lot of premium by not selling pre-earnings. Lesson learned. Still made about 100%

                    $GLUU trying to break $5. Suspect some bigger players either sold calls or bought puts and need to drive it down. My Mar $4 Cs = break even.

                    • Copious28: Alternatively, buying March $5s for about <.30 and selling them for ~.65 would have been nice too. Probably a repeat situation for April.

                    • platonicbomb: Same here, naked $2 puts at any exp date. I'll be looking for options just before earnings.

                        I pay Mark Gomes for a subscription to his Poised to Triple service. Well worth it. What is your favorite paid subscription research outfit?

                            $PXLW up 80% on revelation of Apple as customer. Mark Gomes predicted this almost a year ago. If you owned $10 calls they returned 65X.

                            • platonicbomb: Don't know how much Apple business is already baked in to the price. Probably another $5 upside at least.

                                Great call by Tom Shaughnessy: $VRYAF more than doubles y/y earnings. Pay attention to this author.

                                    $PXLW oversold at -10% after hours. Hit .05 instead of .06 but last year's comp was -.19. Strong quarter.

                                                • platonicbomb: I said absolute value when I should have said relative value. More precisely, I'm interested in price relative to value.
