  • Zoe's Kitchen: Cheap For A Reason [View article]
    This presented a great (and obvious, IMHO) trading opportunity. Might still be????
    I took advantage of the hype going on about the company. Bought it at $29 and change in December. Sold June $30 covered calls at $3.60 or so...Hopefully will be called away in three months from now. A 10+% return in 6 months works for me.

    Who in their right mind eats velvetta? Been long DG for quite a few years now, though.

  • Dollar General: Value In The Overlooked Retail Space [View article]
    I've owned DG for the past 2 to 3 years. Have sold call options against my shares. If my shares get called away, I've been buying them back and selling another option contract.
    From my observations of DG and FDO stores, I hope the acquisition does not go through. However, very few companies ever went broke from underestimating the quality of what the typical American consumer will buy.

  • Exxon: Time To Buy As Oil Crashes Hard? [View article]
    I just began a long term position in XOM for my kids. One thing that let me to chose XOM over other companies in the same business was XOM's better (fewer fees) dividend re-investment plan.

  • Sonic's Earnings Call And Zoe's Kitchen [View article]
    Some people trading options seem to like Zoes. Check out the price of the June 2015 $30 call options. Might be a good opportunity to buy the equity/write the option.
    Zoes is casual dining. I would wager your guess about oil field workers is wrong. Believe it or not, I've even known a few that ate salads with their dinner. Maybe some day they'll expand their horizons to try tofu.

  • Update: RCI Hospitality, Solid Results [View article]
    And I thought T and A stood for Takeovers and Acquisitions (I'm long RICK and have written covered calls)

    Terrible decision for DG...darn it. DG and FDO have little in common. Please, DG, do not do this

    Dollar General (DG) should not be lumped in with the "dollar store" group.

  • Why You Should Sell Family Dollar And Dollar Tree To Buy This Dollar Store [View article]
    In my humble opinion, Dollar General (DG) should not be grouped with some of these other chain stores with "Dollar" in their name. From driving around the southeast, I have noticed that DG stores have better locations, have easy to access gas stations, and carry higher quality products. I've owned DG now for several years..no complaints. Have covered call options at strike of $60 written against my current holdings.

    As of this morning anyways, the options market does not seem to agree with Citi's downgrade.
