I try to somewhat keep quiet on message boards, as I keep to my own strategies and generally disregard most of what I read. My long term strategy, which I outlined here: http://finance.yahoo.com/mbview/threadview/;_ylt=AvAAj6_SYsuPXKnn.TVtDvzeAohG;_ylu=X3oDMTB2MW1laHEyBHBvcwMzOARzZWMDTWVkaWFNc2dCb2FyZHNYSFJVbHQ-;_ylg=X3oDMTBhYWM1a2sxBGxhbmcDZW4tVVM-;_ylv=3?&bn=4c53162a-6176-4dd0-8431-88609aeac73d&tid=1376263827562-5407f4bc-4a77-4178-bf69-2e4a69bcb410
worked out quite well I must say...I hope others were inspired and followed. I thought I might get caught on my Nov puts but missed it by a buck or so, so all was profit and it was quite a Christmas gift unloading the Jan calls right after Christmas day. All in all, one of the best strategies I've actually pulled the trigger on. I guess a little more time value would have been nice on the Jan calls, but hey...why be greedy.
Personally, I made the right call on TMUS and will back away from it for a bit, however, they are still upsetting the wireless market in every which way possible and continue to have an extremely aggressive ad campaign. Let me interject a bit of personal observation: Had one traded based solely on the number of TV ads a company had running at the time they were trading, in most cases that I can recall, that individual would have done very well without any other financial knowledge at all...CSCO around the Summer, MSFT at Christmas, the list is endless with this rudimentary strategy. Keeping that in mind, many will dump out of TMUS since it came close to a $35 price point, but should they continue their campaigns and strategies, I see no reason why they can't hit $40 after things settle and new resistances are set in.
Good Luck to all..my trade atm,easy, short the hell out of NOK. I missed one good day for it, but with 80M shares traded, I see more to come. The only reason they popped was MSFT and that's old news now.
