For the hell of it I picked up 100 shares 3 minutes before the market closed, true story, it can happen. I'll be selling at the open unless of course there's a nice little pop. Full disclosure, 100 shares @ 527.4240. I got lucky, sometimes it's better to be lucky than good..... Have a great day....
I was in yesterday trying to sell my $510 July Calls I'd just bought at $22.80/sh. for $24.90/sh. just before the close (go look at closing bid/ask on GOOG $510 July Calls, I'm the Ask). LUCKILY MY ATTEMPTED SALE DIDN'T GET DONE. I figure it will open at about $89 for sale call I paid $23 for in last hour yesterday.
OK, now I'm not so lucky. People always talk about their big wins. But I'm still holding tons of GOOG stock I bought 4 months ago in the low $600s. So I'm still down a bit on that GOOG stock. But yeah, a huge profit on the Calls I bought yesterday.
I knew all along GOOG was doing great -- its investments in major new products and fields was working out.
