    • Just in from dinner and turning off the machine for the night, but we'll let you in on a"secret": retailers and bush leaguers trade options trying to make money; savvy pros use them to hedge when volumes permit efficient use of them; and excluding deep ITM contracts 90+% of options expire worthless.

      We are confident the bulk of those OTM calls today were purchased to roll older short hedges or to hedge new shorts that went on while nubs were chasing on shares above $29 this morning... We tried to give those who can think here a heads up, but rciari nub, aka wrongway on this story, suggested I was not only short, but also an idiot. LOL at what gumps do to part with their money.

      Today showed you guys that when someone actually knows what they are doing and is willing to share some of that knowledge, perhaps one ought to at least try to understand his comments vs revealing stupidity and ignorance while calling them an idiot. LOL

      Good luck to the longs into earnings next week... we're net long 50% tonight after adding another 150k shares to the hedge short above $30 thanks to sophomoric bids this morning.

      • Truly remarkable volume. I concur that this is most likely short hedging by big boys. Assuming 50M shares are short, this volume would hedge about 20% of the short shares. Do you suppose David E was more likely to be buying the calls to hedge his position, or selling them to double down?

        Sentiment: Strong Buy

        i agree but only to a certain degree.
        1, Im up 1100% this year trading mostly options, id say 95% of my trades are options. I have had losses but over all ive done exceedingly well with the contracts, very short term time frames.

        todays short the open was a no brainer and probably shorts could have run it up, short it at the open and dumped their shares they bought during pre market to enhance the drop.

        i say this is above $30 latest next week.

        maybe sooner.

        good luck

    • Of which the bulk was between 30 and 38..... Its only gonna get better
