  • Facebook Analysts Becoming Less Positive [View article]
    Good info jives with BMO targets reduced from $25 to $15 a couple of days ago.With all the negative press (FB) has become uncool kids are leaving for other more mobile cooler platforms now that even granny has a facebook page. Obama did his "Ask Me Anything" homage to social mobile voters on not Facebook kind of says it all.We have had a FB page for years and are as uncool as it gets.We are making good money on the short side will keep doing what is working. Can anyone say MySpace?We had one of those pages too.

  • Sometimes It Pays To Ignore The Fundamentals [View article]
    (SPY) despite Macro due to world easing has been in a bull channel
    since 2009 moving sinusoidally between resistance and support.All
    shorts short for long have been crushed over time and 100%+ of profit wrong since then.Better for us to buy dips and sell rips and take that profit.We see easing propelling markets upward we hedge
    with covered call selling above(get paid to hedge) not put selling costly 95% of which expire worthless. The key to a major pullback will be high volume sell off of 2% or more nowhere in sight currently.

  • The FX Options Market's Take On The EUR-USD [View article]
    Printing presses rarely keep currencies afloat for long
    ultimately productivity must rule the roost.But all temporary
    fixes have short term effects and EUR/USD has blown
    through $1.26 with Gold now through $1710/oz currently
    Long (NUGT) up 50% in 4 weeks the way we are playing this.
    We do not get in front of the running of the EuroBulls too easy
    to get trampled.

  • Facebook: Don't Get Mad, Get Even [View article]
    (FB) chart going down Put BUYS for us to get even.
    Sell Covered Calls above long to fund them.
    Lots of analysts have reduced targets notably BMO to $15
    Uncool the kiss of death for social even the president
    did his recent "Ask Me Anything" on Reddit not Facebook.
    We like to sell deep OUT OF THE MONEY calls on charts
    going straight up like (AAPL) not a filling knife like (FB) too
    easy to get the stock "Put" to us.Like (RENN) headed for the dumpster of broken stocks we fear looking like the next MySpace.
    currently.Charts this ugly almost never make a U Turn to old highs.

  • The Gold Investor Hall Of Fame: 7 Inspiring Strategies [View article]
    Warren's father was a smarter investor than he a senator who thought we should have stayed on the gold standard since 1971 when Nixon took us off.US would not be 16 TRILLION in debt due to currency debasement if we were still on the Gold Standard.Gold for centuries has been the fortress currency of the world it is rare and has intrinsic value like diamonds it does not have to "Do" anything.We bought our first ounce of physical for $29 in 1969 up 5000% since then.(GLD) X 5 yrs breaking on world currency debasement wars out our play (NUGT) 2800 shares up 44%
    in 4 weeks. Pretty sweet.

  • An Apple A Day Keeps Google At Bay: Cupertino's Financial Muscle Is Too Strong [View article]
    Both are good companies (AAPL) has the greatest potential
    currently (GOOG) is making gains on some fronts like mobile.
    Downside lots of Europe no China big computer search going
    the way of the Dodo they stole Android from Apple.If they clear
    these hurdles they could go up a lot.Longer term Apple is a
    "fat margin" stock 59% profit on the 250 million new iPhone
    5s so they will do great for a few years as margins compress
    they will do less well.Google is service based does not have
    this impediment.Tough call currently Apple for us fundamentally
    the best.

  • Apple: How High Is High? [View article]
    We have been long for decades (AAPL) moves sinusoidally around
    Fibonacci # in the bull channel best chartist
    currently gets it to $714 resistance into the release of the iPhone 5
    then perhaps a sell the news pull back.Charts do not place targets
    on stocks analysts do $900-$1111.11 for 90+% of analysts in 1 year.

  • Before You Buy Into The 'Zuckerberg Put': 5 Things Facebook's CEO Won't Tell You [View article]
    (FB) will go dumpster diving following the way of (RENN)
    and MySpace.Reminds us a lot of the Pump and Dumps
    during the Dot.Com bubble Cuban's and Over-hyped to hot too many shares to be sold
    to recover.Currently uncool kids going mobile and third
    world accounts will dilute revenue per account paying
    pennies on the dollar.We have had account for 3 years
    click on few ads and have not spent a dime.We buy puts
    on rallies and sell them on dips on the way down. A CEO
    with investor care and revenue generation skills might make a difference but Zuck's recent moves are only 4% of the float billions
    of shares to be dumped through March will not save (FB)

  • Get 8.8% Dividend Yield On Apple Using Options [View article]
    We have been long a long time.We see (AAPL) headed up to resistance @ $715 into the iPhone ramp then 'sell the news'
    kicks in it pulls back to support $653 or so.As such our play
    Sell to open cash secure puts Oct 645 strike high chance of keeping all the cash or getting long at a 15% discount.Covered calls risk losing ALL the upside of a stock with a $1K/share target to big
    a risk for us.Theta time decay can DESTROY calls you buy
    if it sells off which it did with the 4GS last year from $410 to $360.
    About 5 weeks ago we sold the SEP 515 puts for $2K/contract
    #15 bought them back for 99% profit a couple of weeks back
    as theta time decay kicked in for 99% $29k profit.So deep out of the money put sells work best for us.
    work best for us.

  • Apple: Samsung Ripped Off The iPhone [View article]
    True and now the negative karma comes home to roost for (GOOG).
    But Eric Schmidt was allowed by Jobs to be on the board for a lot
    of the time this was going on.Tim Cook is not as vitriolic as Jobs was
    the companies are talking currently protracted litigation not good only
    lawyers make money and hatred never ceases with hatred.We hope
    they settle soon plenty of room for all in the space.

    Classic bonehead newbie options move to sell a put on

    the time.Sell Puts on charts going up sell Calls on charts

  • Google: Not A One Trick Pony [View article]
    (GOOG) lots of headwinds good company though.
    They stole Android from (AAPL) patent issues causing
    them to lose share over time. Big computer ad clicks
    losing share to cheaper mobile ad clicks.No China exposure
    lots of Europe.Compared to Apple their chart is treading
    water so we will make hay while the sun shines with Apple.

  • Why Apple's Days Of Sandbagging Estimates Are Ending [View article]
    We think Tim Cook of (AAPL) nailed the last quarter
    with a slight beat an raise by their numbers so we
    think they are doing well these days.90% of the analysts
    blew it thinking folks would not wait for iPhone 5.They
    did.We are getting $365 from Apple recycling for our 1 year old 4GS and cannot wait for the upgrade.250 million iPhone 5 units projected to be sold with high margins should be great.

  • Is Apple A Buy Here? Valuation By Intelligent-Behavior Analysis [View article]
    Nice work long for decades we are chartists (AAPL) undulates
    in Sine Waves by Fibonacci # between resistance and support
    coiling for an upside run to $713.We think the "news" will be sold
    9/12 and will hedge up our 1035 shares then.Folks wanting a good
    entry should wait for the pullback that will come.For the iPhone 4
    GS launch 1 yr ago it pulled back from $420 to $360 where we bought our last big tranche and sold puts for cash. Odds are good
    it will do that again so we would wait.
