  • GT Advanced Technologies Investor Guide To Apple's iPhone 6 Unveiling Event [View article]
    I spoke to 14 people I know on Tuesday, plus me (15 total) only 2 (I do not) still wore a watch, most get time from phone, computer, I have a hard time believing that a watch will sell enough to make any bump in revenue for Apple, once it is able to do all that an ipad, iphone can do (except make calls) it may sell better, until then (2016-17) a non-event.

    Bexpo, if your post is 100% sincere my question for you is this..why did you buy GTAT in the first place? I ask because if you think what you wrote:

    "So now what - this stock goes down to what? Is there any value left? "

    you know little to zero about the company. Why would you invest any money in something you don't know? Peter Lynch always said "never buy shares in a stock if you can't explain in under 5 minutes exactly what they do"

    Hey Mr Happyass, wish you owned some PUTS now, LOL criticising me for suggesting it, I think the term you used was calling me a PUSSY for not having conviction. I don't like seeing folks lose money, the exception is YOU!!! Ex broker, how about ex because all your clients went broke. LOL Sleep well Mr. broke man with conviction

    Mike, don't expect any positive compliments from Arnie, in fact I would suggest you just ignore anything he has to say, it seldom adds to a conversation.

    Thank you, glad I could help, even though the stock seems to be rebounding, and I am not listening to AAPL call, etc. I was able to sell most of the PUTS I bought at .35-.45 at between $1-$1.20 the stock hasn't tanked, which I an truly happy, but did feel better seeing it down $1.60 and knowing my profits were safe. Even if I had lost some of the cost, still piece of mind knowing my gains were almost completely safe. Take care

    It's about making/protecting your assets, not about anything else, if you feel protecting what you have is being a "pussy" it explains why you're a "former" financial advisor. Your U-4 (or U-5) must be interesting

    Please explain how "Just buy call options a bit out of the money to get them back" I'm curious exactly what you would suggest he do.

    That's why you hold your shares and buy at/near the $$ PUTS. I posted early Monday the suggestion, BUY Septweek2 puts at between $16.50-$15.50 costing between .60-.85 for insurance. If you did what you said, than in all honesty you don't have the risk tolerance for stocks AND you had too much of your total capital in GTAT. What was your thesis for buying? Has it changed? You sir truly need to take your $$ from the market and buy a 6 month CD, not being rude but giving you the same sincere advice I would have given a client

    As I have posted before I am VERY long GTAT stock and Calls However I am strongly recommending today NOW to buy some at the money PUTS that expire Friday as insurance, not long term and pay time value but just thru Tuesday/Wednesday stocks do what we least expect and to buy some Sept week 2 PUTS with strikes of $16.50, $16 and even $15.50 for between .60 & .85 cents just in case the stock drops is just prudent, wise, investing. If the stock continues up as we all want, the cost of the PUTS is negligible, however if it drops $1-$3 for any reason the gain on PUTS will offset the loss on common if bought right. I buy between 1.5-2 puts for every 100 shares of common. Would rather post this now than late tomorrow with the stock at $14.75 or there abouts.

  • Mueller Water Products Showing Signs Of Real Recovery [View article]
    Too weird, my initial purchase were 10/2010 @ $3.02, traded around my core posn. but have NOT given up. I believe once another bridge collapses due to water leaks that were undetected or some municipality will demand theirs will be fixed. There seems to be 3-4 cos. either independent or a small part of a larger co. Either way this will soon be a nice division of someone for approx. $14 OR still independent and trading between $13-$15 by y/e 2015, in the meantime SELL Naked Puts and collect option premium for awhile and if there is a drop you can buy more shares for ~$7.50 minus premium.

  • Glu Mobile: More Downside Possible [View article]
    It also happens quite often when a dwarf (midget) walks into a tall woman when not paying attention, not as uncommon and definitely would cause a short squeeze
