    How Low PFE Go...

    This POS is down to $16.63 at noon today. How low will it go? Any bets?

    • I have thought the same thing. Of course, there is one other possibility, he is insane.

    • I trust that I am not the only one to note that Charty referred to 12-1/2s but at the same time quoting a 15-strike price. That's not a mistake that anyone really involved could ever make. My point is that Charty's whole involvement here is likely to be simply a work of fiction. There's likely no money and also no transactions.

      Pure fantasy.

    • That seems a little high. The 15s, perhaps.

      How does one change those cell-point settings?

    • The best use of available margin is for the sale of 12.50-strike naked puts out to January of 2012. They are fetching an incredible $287 on the bid side.

      That's over $14 per month for 20 months and the margin requirements are less than for near-term 14 strikes.

    • I don't think PFE going under $15 TODAY. Have sold $15 May PUTS and want to pocket that premium.Thank God!!This is a bloody very volatile market. If Puts are not exercised, will sell again forty $14 PFE June Puts.

    • PFE seems to be stabilizing in $15 area, and as market begin to move up after correction, PFE will move up too. Jefferies now upgraded PFE to BUY. PFE needed this.

      I am going tosell some June $14 PUTs to bring down my cost under $16.5, and will also write June $17 covered CALLs.

      Too bad we also didn't miss the move from $30 to $11.66. Had we not already lost a boatload, we might have had enough in the game to make that move from $12.79 to $14.54 matter. And then, had we booked gains, we might be rolling in the dough.

      I wonder if Mike will consider sharing the wealth?

    • Some of the huge gains come right after wicked declines - even if the rallies don't end up holding.

      Over just a four-session period from the 10/6/08 close to the 10/10/08 close, Pfizer actually tanked by 20.1% in collapsing from $18.94 to $15.14 on a closing basis.

      However, the next session, Monday Oct. 13, Prizer surged from $15.14 to $16.67, a 10.1% move. And then on Oct. 14, it tacked on another 2.7% to wind up at $17.13. The two-session spurt from $15.14 to $17.13 was a 13.2% gain.

      Another massive tank job a month later took Pfizer from a dividend-adjusted $18.09 on Nov. 4 to $14.45 on the close twelve sessions later on Nov. 20.

      But the very next day camne a surge of $1.22 per share to $15.67 and that was followed the next session by a 37-cent gain to $16.04. The two-session advance was 11.0%.

      Markets like what we're in now are the ones that spawn such moves.

    • It can move down just as fast as we saw today.

    • It happened on the eighth session following the March 2 closing low at $11.66.

      On that March 12 session, Pfizer on a closing basis bounded from $12.79 to $14.02, a surge of $1.22 per share or 9.5%. Not satisfied with that, it surged another 52 cents the next session (3.7%) to close March 13 at $14.54.

      The two-session move from $12.79 to $14.54 was 13.7%. At that $14.54 close, the stock was up by a remarkable 24.7% over the $11.66 that it had closed at just nine sessions previously.

      These are moves that I personally just don't want to be missing and I'm willing to remain fully invested so that I don't miss out when the turn comes.

      I may be an Options Master but I don't claim to be a genius when it comes to pinpoint timing. I'll have to leave that to others.
