  • Apple Below $600: Trick Or Treat? [View article]
    All I know is that when... not if.. it gets back above 600... I will be taking a small option position. I think that will be when institutions really load up again. Thoughts anyone?

    If you "invested" in Apple 6 weeks ago.... no doubt. I think this is where you want to dollar cost average.

    I agree goofydon. The fact they provided downward guidance for the 4th qtr sets themselves up for blowing out expectations.

  • The Issues Of Weekly Options, Risk, And Comments On My Daily Options Strategy [View instapost]
    I agree Mike 100% with you!

    Kim was instrumental in helping me avoid spending thousands of dollars on Kevin's training program. He enlightened me on Kevin's track history by pointing me to threads of Kevin's articles where weaknesses are very evident and cause for alarm. Particularly interesting however was despite the fact that Kim sells a service he actually objectively recommended a competitor's program for me to check out as well -- Dan Sheridan. Very impressed and that shows hes genuine.

    I was nonetheless anxious to see what Kevin had to say about Kim and his strategies I must say when he promised a few weeks ago that he would be writing an article. Unless I missed it I don't believe he followed through--- this speaks wonders in my book!

    Kevin why no article? It seems you are very critical against Kim in general statements-- but yet havent backed it up with real world examples.

    Looking at the questions here on this thread posed to him and failure to respond along with suspicious posters like rgarvis showing up out of nowhere making bold claims yet not responding is interesting as well.

    I also noticed that Kevin had about 50 comments removed recently that contained all sort of personal attacks and name calling... my guess is he is being watched by SA big brother haha!

    Serves him right in my book.

  • Why I Bought Apple Ahead Of This Week's Earnings Announcement [View article]
    Good article thx.

    I believe AAPL is undervalued but my concern for this quarter's announcement is that due to iphone 5 delays earnings will be down.

    What I am totally confused about is if this will be expected and that a downside announcement is already priced in with the recent decline.

    As a result of my confusion I will not be doing anything until Friday relative to any new positions LOL

    Good luck.

    I see the author has no further comment. Very deceiving to say the least... I am wary of this individual.

    Buried in his link are the words:


    "The downside of this strategy is obviously what happens when the stock falls rather than moves higher – the percentage loss for the portfolio is likely to be greater than the percentage loss in the stock, unless the weekly loss is moderate."

    Too bad he didn't post that here!! :-/

  • Will Google Be Generous To Us Once Again? [View article]
    So Kim.... what is the logic one needs to use to determine whether to just go with a traditional strangle... such as the GOOG 720put/800call... or the spread combination which creates the reverse iron condor? Is it simply a matter of reducing the total cost of the trade by the credit one receives from the short strikes... or is there more to it- such as how the spread impacts time decay/IV? Trying to figure out what the tradeoffs are with either approach- and how risk is affected either way. With the reverse iron condor there is a max cap on profit correct? Vs unlimited theoretically on a straight strangle?
