That might provide some upward pressure or some stability
PFE longs are sad, grasping at straws, no matter how flimsy, to feed their insane delusions!
You obviously have no hint as to how max pain works. At the very time you posted this crazed drivel, PFE was migrating toward a lower strike price, as options positions were being unwound.
Nor is PFE now under downward pressure toward $25 because that's current max pain & will be at expiry. There simply isn't enough riding on that strike price & the stock is too far away for max pain to make a difference, just as was the case when it was at $27.50.
No wonder you're all such sorry bagholders! Ignorant, stupid & wishful thinking, straw-graping craziness go before a fall. Or lots of them, over & over.
If you want to trade this POS, the only way to do so is short, covering at the support level before dividend ex-date, then shorting again. You can't lose.
But IMO PFE isn't worth playing at all now. Its downside is almost as limited as its upside for the next few years.
It might be a buy in 2009, 2010 or 2011, but not now. A ruling in favor of Ranbaxy from Canada, however, might set up a trading buy for a brief short covering rally ride up after it sells off. If I thought Ranbaxy might win, I'd keep shorting PFE's dividend bounces, but I don't think they'll prevail.
PFE, BVF, and TYC
Gee, I wonder who THIS might be?
HA! HA! HA!
He always blames others for doing exactly what he does himself. He is very childish that way. He thinks if he uses a different alias people won't recognize his phrasing and cadence. I wonder why he cracks on charty so much when he is the same anal retentive, OCD type jerkoff as is charty.
> Notice all the imaginary friends that come to the whacko loser's defense!
Yeah, "imaginary" and "friend."
I ain't tiderunner and I don't always agree with him, as the above shows.
but hey, if that fantasy gets you off, go for it!
No you stupid bastard. he thinks it's funny because you and all your aliasess forget which one said what. You are so incredibly transparent.
Then you recommend all your posts while accusing me of doing it. I wasn't even near a machine during that time.
You are a fucking clown. You can't see that people can read you.
Explain please why you posted this, when the trend was $25 gaining on the $27.50 strike price, with plenty of time left for max pain to reach the lower price, if you weren't predicting it?
Your posts does nothing to suggest otherwise, & correct me if I'm wrong that "say" implies you're posting with that prediction.
You could have noted the trend toward $25, if you weren't predicting $27.50, or said something about doubting it. Otherwise, why did you post about max pain "saying" $27.50?
Your problem is that you see Max Pain as a sure thing. It only applies small pressures in most cases. Your other problem is that you don't read peoples posts. You are so busy being full of yourself that you post before you think. I never predicted any number but I did say 2 weeks ago that it could reach 27. It did I sold like I said.
I find it interesting you want to revisit the argument when it is no longer fresh in the mind. The posts are there. Read them.
If I post Max Pain is 27.5 it means Max Pain is 27.5 If I said there was an assain in the room, that is different from saying someone will be assasinated. If I say there are storm clouds, it doesn't mean it will rain. If I say there is sunshine, it doesn't mean it will be warm.
You confuse issues with your defensive arguments. You should be open to understand what a person is saying.
