    Chance of a Chipotle-style stock collapse after earnings--62.543%

    With a 3500 PE ratio? They can't squeeze me because I'm not short. I'm in put spreads. I never panic. I pay a small fee every month to rollover the spreads, and will collect when the big plunge happens like I did with Chipotle.

    If I were short, i would sell puts against the short position to collect the premiums. Maybe even sell put spreads (e.g.short a higher strike and long a lower strike--collect a premium yet still have the lower strike plus the short when the stock plunges).

    Sentiment: Strong Sell

    • Sybil, do you sell weekly or montly puts against your short position to capture the premiums?

      • Sybil knowz what you are saying dummy.... Again sybs doesnt take out 'insurance'.... The day the retailer gets saucey and starts writing a selling puts will be the day robots voble them up and then unload their long position.... All optionz are an absolute scam Unless you control a statistically significant portion of the underlying float with a battery of robots to run nanosecend tradez based on statistics and probabilitez with realtime data that comez from being able to loan, leverage, and scalp clients that are working within your pool of float... You have to be an institution like FMR, WORLD CAP,BLACK ROCK, GS, MS, et al. To play optionz and achive a chance and scale needed for consistantly winning out comez...

        You know that optionz tradez are getting long in the tooth when knuckle head retailerz are trying to explain to each other what institutionz have already been doing for 3.5 yearz solid and how great it iz. "no sybil, i mean would you SELL a put againdt you short position not BUY one. You can make a lot of money SELLING puts and hedge your shorts...""". Fvck in sheeple dummiez think old sybs iz retaaaaarded or something while sybs watchez theze idiots get corraled by robots for mass murder.

      • No optionz are a scam... Sybil 'self insurez' by betting responsibly rather than paying a bot sybs gainz in premiumz or being put... Optionz of any form are the biggest suckerz bet going...
