    Thanks for the article. Lot's of "if's ands, or buts." In other words you have no idea what's going on with nat gas. Sorry, but there is no direction. Maybe this...maybe that. We're all in the same disposition.

    Thanks for the article. Good headline, but very weak, abbreviated and shallow arguments.

  • Don't Worry About Being 'Right'; Focus On Risk Vs. Reward [View article]
    Outstanding article. Thanks. Reminds me of risk/reward in a business vs. personal finances, or flying as a private pilot. What is the risk vs. reward in taking weather risks? What is the risk to your family or friends for taking a flight into weather obscuration? Will you survive if you don't make the wedding or important business meeting? Risk assessment and situational awareness is something everyone needs in business, employment, and personal dealings. It's a management skill that changes with age, and responsibility to others.

    Oh, but there was a release...He paid out fund redemptions in $SHLD stock. At least he gave them a week to sell it before the announcement today.

  • Twitter Lock Up Expiration: A Look At Other Recent Numbers [View article]
    Thanks for article. It's probably splitting hairs, but I read in the filing (pg 47 and throughout) that if the company chooses to pay the taxes the initial share lockup would be reduced to 3.3 mil shares. Stat and implied vol is so high, 3.3 mil shares probably wouldn't make a dent, whereas 9.8 mil shares would be 14% of 70 mil existing tradable shares. Anybody have news along those lines?

  • Tesla Remains A Buy [View article]
    If I want to build a rocket ship, it needs fuel. Where does that fuel exist? In the case of $TSLA it's batteries fueled by electric power. There is an abundance of electricity, but there is not an abundance of batteries. Pure and Simple.

    shark..it's part of the discussion missing from the room, but it's the elephant. Listen to last conference call...."more granular details will be provided". Granular is code word for fine print.

    qtr...would you wait until after 1st earnings report? I agree on the long term, but best to wait then go directional or straddle? I expect IV to implode one way or another into Feb.
