If you are a trader, I can't help you. If you are an investor, like me, I might wait a bit until it comes back a bit to say $31. Its had an incredible run and looks overbought. The stock will continue to consolidate while the market figures out how to estimate future dividends. INHO, Apollo has the potential to a pay steady dividend over the next several years out of their management fee income (somewhere between 2-3% at current prices) and lumpy special dividends from period dividends they get from their portfolio companies and realizations on harvesting investments (another 3-4%).
I own this stock and have been recently have been adding shares and selling calls to get my purchase basis down to the levels indicated above.
My only comment is "Thanks" to you both for posting. I was beginning to think that I was alone here. Haven't owned APO long enough to learn its trading patterns, but it has treated me exceptionally well since late June and has a beautiful looking up channel chart pattern. It does seem to run in streaks though, so the covered calls look like a pretty good idea. I think it's Credit Suisse who has a current target of $45 or $46 and it seems that they keep raising it. Good luck!
