  • McDermott grabs large contract amendment for work in Hout field [View news story]
    Yes, options, however if you don't have experience with them I suggest you do some studying before you use real money, do some phantom trades and check out http://www.cboe.com

  • McDermott grabs large contract amendment for work in Hout field [View news story]
    Bought not too long ago, 12/29 @ $3.05 and more on 1/21 @ $2.21 sold some March $2.50 calls and collected $1.15 which I closed out at .65 (net .50) as well as some other April calls and closed them out with a gain of .26 all told I still have all my original shares with that c/b. Currently I am long my original posn. with the naked PUTS as well as some May $5.50 CALLS I sold last week and collected .35 which is NOT included in my net cost yet as the posn is still open. As for the price I expect, no clue, when I open a posn I look at current price, option premium, and whether I expect it to go up or down, if up I put the trade on, if down I walk away, but never do I put essentially a cap on my gain, as long as the stock and it's fundamentals are good I stay once that dynamic changes I'm gone. There are 2 exceptions, AVAV and MWA, both stocks I have owned and been accumulating for 5-8 years, I KNOW they both should be substantially higher and will be, just don't know when. Good luck

    My avg cost after selling calls is now $1.98 and I sold 100 May $5.50 PUTS and collected almost $1.25 so if closes above $5.50 free money, if not assigned with a net cost of $4.25, looks good as of today, may be regretting it on Friday, never know but still a nice trade, even the JUNE $5 are not bad, collect .40 and a gain above $4.60

  • Mueller Water Products: Tech Can Help California [View article]
    Webvan was an internet stock that went from $30 to $185 to $.01 in 2003, point being people at that time bought anything that was .com if the story sounded good, i.e. webvan was a grocery delivery service that lost $$ from the 1st online order to the last.

    As to your point about getting due value, I will continue holding and doing my own DD until I feel completely satisfied and then i'll sell, never try to get the last .10, too often you end up with way less. Take care and thanks for the information

  • Mueller Water Products: Tech Can Help California [View article]
    THANK YOU, I also have owned this stock since 2009-10 range and agree with your thesis 100%. I have told dozens of friends about it but since it's not sexy they aren't interested, however if I remember correctly wasn't Webvan sexy?

    I feel pretty confident that MWA will become a small part of a large company at some point in the not too distant future. That's what the larger cos. do, let MWA take all the risk of growing the business then come buy them when the risks have dissipated. That may work against us as the major growth will benefit "them" not "us"

  • TheStreet: An Interesting Play Below $2 [View article]

    If you're not going to back up your assertion with some rationale and if your statement WERE true than your comment is just below the junk you suggest the article is.

    Good or bad Cramer has people who watch and listen, like watching a train wreck, I listened to Cramer way back in the day and he hasn't gotten stupid, in fact he knows more about the inner-workings of the market than 99% of everyone, unfortunately he stopped using that knowledge as listeners like most investors don't want to do the work and just want to hear a stock symbol, I know because I remember when he or Dan Dorfman would speak our phones would light up with lemmings buying and not even knowing what the co. did!!! So to attempt to stay relevant Cramer gave what they wanted, and lost credibility, I haven't watched once in the last 3-4 years or more but I doubt that's changed, unfortunately, he is a brilliant investor and knowledge source.

    I was a broker from 1994-02, investing since I was ~13

  • Mueller Water Products declares $0.02 dividend [View news story]
    I've owned this and have been accumulating it for several years, the water infrastructure nationwide is laughable and needs to be upgraded now, that's something a municipality can't say to it's residents in 5-8 years you'll have clean water without water running from sidewalk cracks, especially with drought conditions in so many states

  • JAKKS Pacific (JAKK) Q1 2015 Results - Earnings Call Webcast [View article]
    The stock reaction isn't logical to me, rev. & earnings were much better than before and the pattern seems to be continuing, that's what is necessary for a stock to appreciate. It looks like patience will be tested but needed with this one, at least until the growth pattern changes

  • McDermott upgraded at Imperial on improving prospects [View news story]
    LOL, OK Jack, I'll remember that. And when it's under $10 and they're still independent will you mark this post and say you were wrong? I've been doing this since I was around 13 so whether GE and MDR do something or not my comment is still correct. You know medical devices and I know stocks

    expect zero from GE and be surprised, stories like this that come to fruition are way too few and far between, you can watch good gains go away waiting.

    it would be nice but unlikely, how about you click "portfolio" and enter the date/symbol/share price and name "Goldman short ideas" and keep track

    I bought 2-3x and after selling 1/3 today my avg cost is $1.78, I am contemplating selling some AUGUST $4.50 puts and collecting .50 so if assigned my net will be $4 (on those shares)

    Wouldn't you like to get filled on a BUY order at $4??
