    PJ -- GMCR

    Did you hold? Looks like I cut that one too short as well. I was out when it cracked $30 in early Sept (which wasn't bad from going in at $19 when everybody was saying it would be out of business...).

    Unlike Amazon, GMCR actually has significant strategic control over its share of the retail business (coffee in its case). It could wreak havoc with SBUX and DNKN if they don't play nice...

    • Yah...

      I had picked up 40 Jan 24 calls a few weeks ago when it dipped to 23. Was sitting on a 100% return this morning and sold them late morning. I couldn't stomach the thought of having it miss and go to 20 and give it all back. I was so sure they were going to post great numbers but I wasn't going to take that chance. Last I saw it was over 36! great play for all that had the courage to hold. I got a nice gain ( could of been nicer) and now gives me enough capital to get aggressive if AMZN makes a run at 250. I do think it heads lower, tried to get over 245 several times the last few days and couldn't hold. Black Friday over, Cyber Monday over, bond buying over, extremely over bought. Everything point down, short turn anyway.

      I didn't study economics but I think I know enough to think that AMZN selling a bond isn't good for the bottom line....am I wrong??? Why is this viewed as a good thing?? - PJ

      Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Herb doesn't seem to get it. It is about strategic control. SBUX doesn't want GMCR to get into a race to the bottom. It has MUCH more to lose...
