    I have some orders in to lighten up on common

    here at 11.75 and more under 12.

    Less than 20% or remaining common.

    And likely to be more then doubly replaced by taking delivery of stock from OCT thru JAN.

    By the simpleton upper line on the finviz chart is all.

    Who the heck knows still how this budget #$%$ will go.

    The problem is SPENDING!! Not the debt ceiling.

    Good luck folks.

    While I was typing the 11.75's sold. Kinda curious though the fill was 100 at a time.

    • The 11.95's went off on my way to lunch.

      I see KLIC is in the headlines for being a big mover. I'll look for a real reason - if someone has a real reason please chime it.

      If we get serious SPAM don't sell!

      I've done well with trading shares again. And I have calls in essence to give me twice the common I sold in the last 2 days.

      I'll have to look at when to sell covered calls - I'm more likely to do that than sell the calls I own. This way if KLIC moves signifiactly up or down(as it often does on no news) or the market due to gov't shutdown reports I can kinda play it both ways.

      Still purely long at this point - just booked some profits.

      I have some other high BETA's really running today. I'm off to look for news. I may be selling some lots of other stocks before close.

      • The obvious reason for the rise in KLIC is the barrons article. A stock written up in barrons typically shows this sort of up tick on the day following the weekend that the article comes out. (The monday issue comes out on Saturday morning)

      • Sold more trading shares purchases 8/9/13 for 11.25999 for 13.25. Not many. 17% in basically 2 months.

        I had planned on selling these and had already purchased calls a ways back that are now paid for.

        I believe all my calls are paid for with common profits and all those calls are well into the green.

        No real SPAM yet so I'd think we're going higher.

        "scale in, sclae out, online commissions are cheap" I did think about writing calls against these but nothing excited me so I jsut sold them. I still may write against other shares.

        Overall market kinda #$%$, KLIC doing very well today 13.27 up 9.76% as I write with HOD of 13.29 on crazy volume. Options volume also very high.
