  • 2 Takes From Arch Coal's Earnings [View article]
    Paulo, I am curious about your call buying. Do you buy out of money calls in these kind of trades or at the money? To me, March at 4.5 strike seems good.

    Average market P/E requires Average market rate of growth. Companies with flat earnings, as Apple!, will have lower P/E.

    There are some exceptions. Options that are based on indexes, such as the Standard & Poor's 500 and Dow Jones industrial average trade until 4:15 ET, he says.

    And options on futures tied to the CBOE volatility index, or VIX, trade from 8 a.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET. The VIX is an index that rises and falls along with investors' anxiety about markets.

  • Buy S&P 500, Avoid Nasdaq [View article]
    There were no doubts! They clearly stated their projected margin. With that margin, the stock was overvalued at 4.6. Don't get in love with an equity.

    If you think the margin will improve over time, go ahead and buy it, but the earning report says something else. Unless, you think that they have low-balled it, which is in my opinion unlikely.

    that would not be their first decision that had both negative health and cost benefits. Look at nuclear. Germany is closing perfectly good and relatively new reactors. They just want the votes.

  • Reflections On The Current State Of Apple [View article]
    What are you talking about? Only 2% of float is short, it is nothing. I bet a good portion of them is coming from derivative market makers, trying to hedge their option selling. You won't get a short squeeze from 2%.

  • Hewlett-Packard Is Likely To Miss Estimates [View article]
    Paulo, in the past few weeks, I was buying puts in HPQ. However, it kept going and going and going. Finally, I folded three days ago. Naturally, after that it just crashed. I am now just cursing myself. What do you think Paulo about shorting at current price 21$? Maybe it is too late.

  • BlackBerry: Is A Major Short Squeeze Coming? [View article]
    I would buy the stock, sell the 14$ call option and buy the 12$ put option, or something like that. It has a more established reward/loss IMHO.

    Because of the implied volatility, both the call and put options are now very expensive. So, you can sell one to buy the insurance. Specially when you don't plan to keep it if the squeeze happens.
