That is the value AAPl will bring by selling cheaper iPhones to merging markets.
Since we are talking about numbers...$74 is the positive cash flow since March 11 if one shorted or sold GOOG and AMZN and went long AAPL.
$225 is the cash in your pocket IF you bought AAPL at $600 and followed my suggestions trading Jan 2013 and 2014 covered calls.
April 23 is Earnings date for AAPL... the Thur before, experiment with GOOG on paper , whatever. At 3:30 that Thursday, sell the present market covered call..if the stock is $800...sell the Jan 2014 $800 call for $60+.
then BUY not that week's but the FOLLOWING week's corresponding call and put for probably in total $25 - $30..in this example's case $800.
then that FRiday and previous Monday, etc following the values...
If you understand or feel comfortable..try the same with AAPL that Tue, April 23 at 3:30
Jan 2014 options move 30 t0 40% f market price action compared the 110 %move of near term options...this sis why it worked last quarter.
PPrint off this post....I may be on to something good here...work in progress
What do you mean "No Cost". Last I checked, for every 1 covered call option you are talking about at 600, you are buying $60,000 worth of stock, minus option premium.
Also, if you bot AAPL @600 and got $50, even $100 for the call you sold, you are underwater, even if the calls decayed down to zero. You have a cost basis of 550, maybe 500 on a $423 equity. I'm apparently not following.
