    Use most of it to sell out of the money puts options.
    M Dell did this for years and did well

  • Apple Cannot Be Valued: Warren Buffett Knows This And You Should Too [View article]
    I feel A is a lot like a high fashion designer.
    For years they were in huge demand at high
    prices, then everyone went to jeans.

  • Apple Earnings Trades: This Is Only A Test [View article]
    Rocco me this. My opinion is the MM in
    AAPL have had to get massively long the stock.
    I feel the total number of puts and calls is shrinking.
    As this happens, the MM sells stock to stay flat exposure,
    thus the recent constant selling.

  • You Can Make Money Off Of Apple Without Owning It [View article]
    As the old quote say,
    "there are many way to skin a cat"
    What you do with it, I don't know.
    My trade that seems to be working
    is out of the money weekly butterflies.
    This week the 585 puts and the 615 calls
    If your are wrong, you loose about $1000
    on a ten lot.
    Additionally I took off the call 615/625 yesterday
    and have short 625 long 635 remaining. This will
    probably go today.

  • Apple: Dissecting The Butterfly Trade [View article]
    April is an eternity away. Try a weekly out of the money, both
    puts and calls. If the move stalls, by Weds., sell the at the money
    I am a geezer trader, but back in the days of cardboard cards
    and a crayon, this used to work

    Here is an idea. But in a bid of $100 a share for 100 share
    and wait.

  • Bullish On Apple: Hedging Considerations [View article]
    Here is my variation on the idea.
    I am long a put and a call butterfly.
    They usually cost about a point and I
    use the weeklies.
    With a 585 close I bought the 600/810/620 call
    spread and the 575/565/555 put spread.

    Either side can go to 10 with a move, and I
    never adjust before 3:30 on Friday.

  • How Trading Apple Can Bring Both Rags And Riches [View article]
    Sorry to hear of your experience

    I have been buying put and call weekly butterflys
    that are out of the money by a couple strikes.
    No Margin is the big reason.
    I can do size and adjust as the week progresses.
    One side is usually a winner and I will end up with
    deep in the money puts or calls which offset.

    I almost never see a comment on a losing position
    on a post. Very brave.
