After earnings there is normally a drop in volatility and the value of call options will drop some. However your options are fairly deep in the money so you shouldn't lose too much premium. Also, if FB goes up after earnings the value of your calls should also go up.
If she has been commanding $600,000 for each speech she gives...
... then why has she been complaining about "being broke"?
She's coming up on 70 years old. Is she getting senile, or WHAT?
apply is about cell phones......fb is about social and ads .......u can't compare like that, brother
Zack's timely release suggests foul play. No dilution this quarter and whatsapp could be 2 years away before finalizing. By the time whatsapp is finalized, FB stock will have doubled thus dilution cut in half. That 19 billion was created for a future closing. IMO, whatsapp will be worth every penny as FB nurtures it to full monetization while user growth explodes outside the US over next 18-24 months. Then close the deal. Don't be short that quarter.
A site I came across the other day basically said that if all FB metrics got thrown into the mix, then chances are we might see about 2 pts. At that time something below 70...Wouldn't want to be out regardless. If things turn out great that will be one less site to think about.
I like the Gopro thought. I'm keeping an eye on that. TWTR unlock was very good to me (of course, until I got greedy).
I had no intention of using option open interest as an indicator this week, but as of today, the stock is trading as if earnings will be a non event. Today was very controlled... Somewhat baffling. The only surprise today is, volume same, movement same, price pinned between ITM calls. Just like any other week... I think these suttle hints suggest to go about ones trading business as usual. There's always the Facebook stating something stupid factor or a flat out miss but I think unlikely.
AAPL and MSFT, decent numbers with tight a/h range tonight. Perfect for them to hold these levels, I'd like the same at minimum for FB. Better to not expect to much. If options dictate again, we barely break 70 this week. No put action and no one knows shorted call positions... That's the x factor. Closing above 68 last Friday was a pleasant surprise for me last week, it leads me to believe our shorts are hiding in sold call positions, not the stock. No way to know. If day trading, I'd wait.
Of topic, I bet gopro chart looks just like twitter chart in 6 months when insider selling begins
Zack ranks it a 4 meaning it will tank on earnings. Beside Oculus and Whatsapp and other companies recently bought will create a huge dilution for some time
