    I earned 14.9% in 15 weeks while the underlying stock fell by 8%

    Here is a re-post of the original sale transaction on Sept. 11 which as usual was posted on this board in real time:

    NO, LYING PINOCCHIO (yes, a redundancy). here's EXACTLY when you posted that transaction (one week AFTER the fact, not "real time"):

    BIDU replaces GE in the non-bank naked put-writing portfolio
    by fizrwinnr11 . Sep 18, 2012 3:30 AM . Permalink
    On Sept. 11 with the stock at $109.44, I sold 20 contracts of the BIDU Mar. 65-strike naked puts for $160 apiece. The contracts fetched $3,190 after commissions with cash margin requirements at my brokerage being $16,240. If the stock can simply remain over the margin-safe price of $73.15, the return if held to March expiration will be a nominal 19.0% which is at the pace of 38.0% for a year. With an almost-certain early out, the annualized return should be about 45% on this investment. Keep in mind that the strike price here is just SIXTY-FIVE.

    • On the rare occasions that I don't post a trade in real time, there's a very good reason for it. They include:

      1) Being out of town
      2) My computer is on the fritz
      3) I am preoccupied with a regional bridge tournament
      4) I am unable to access the message board

      I was not out of town on Sept. 11 and I haven't had any computer malfunctions lately. That leaves reasons #3 and #4. I can't remember the exact dates of the Irvine Regional but I do recall that it was in September and so that may have been the reason for the delay.

      Also, Yahoo changed its format several months ago and for a period of a week or two, it was almost impossible for me to access the message board. Only when I discovered the Google Chrome Browser was I able to post.

      But even though this may have been a rare instance where I couldn't post in real time, it was still posted when the issue of whether I'd make money or lose was very much in doubt. I'm not a phony like you who wants credit for winning trades AFTER the fact when the trades have been closed out. What I object to obviously with such posts is that I know I'm only going to see posts for winning trades. You may have six losers and that one winner and I'm certainly not going to see any of the six losers, am I? With me, I post ALL the trades when they are very much in doubt as to whether they will be winners or losers.

      Sentiment: Buy

      • in your reply you said:

        "On the rare occasions that I don't post a trade in real time, there's a very good reason for it. "

        this wasn't about your not posting a trade in real time. it was about your claim that you HAD posted it in real time when you HADN'T. here are your EXACT words:

        "Here is a re-post of the original sale transaction on Sept. 11 which as usual was posted on this board in real time"

        see the words "as usual"??? see the words "real time"?? those aren't MY words, they're YOUR words!!!

        the rest of your msg is, "AS USUAL", a BUllxxxxxxit DODGE of the point being made.

        and if your first msg was a "re-post" of the original sale, the only place you could have copied and pasted it from was your msg dated 12/18, not 12/11. there are no other msgs by you about having made that sale. that one msg (12/18) contained all of the details of the sale. did you fail to notice the date of the msg you posted?

        it simply boils down to only two possibilities:
        1. you LIED when you claimed to have posted the sale in real time and/or
        2. you were (gasp) WRONG when you claimed to have posted the sale in real time.

        take your pick. either way you have demonstrated once more what a COWARD you are when it comes to owning up to a simple truth.

        YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH!!!!! so much for the "Truth in Stats Committee".

        do me a favor and stick to your STUPID threat about not responding to anything i say until i post a "real time" naked put sale with your broker. it never happened and it won't happen.

        all you do is prove over and over that when GEPPETTO (me) pulls the strings of PINOCCHIO, you jump.

        EOS!!!!!
