Well... for starters... it will be a huge gamble that could pay off very nicely... But it is risky...If you want to go with something a bit more safe then ABT would be it... or you can ride the GE train up over 13 a share before earnings hit Friday... (But I would sell before earnings come out just to be on the safe side)...
Hey - i just want to thank you for the heads up you gave on your message post. I managed to buy some calls this afternoon before the market closed. I owe you a few beers or whatever refreshments you enjoy!!!
You guys are smoking some serious weed. I would not take the chance to hold shares over night. I am not short, but will be watching for earnings eagerly.
Good news may push this another 2 points in am. But it isn't worth the risk of holding overnight. Particularly since you could have locked a profit near EOD.
I used to hold shares overnight for earnings surprises in some ways it is safer than options as you can buy into the AH market at good pricing especially when a stock like this is thinly traded. Now its just options which doesn't give the benefit of the AH and pre trading sessions but does give EXTREME leverage and I will be making 200% on my $25 April Calls if OZRK hits the AH high and if it hits $30 an easy 600%+.
The South East with all the new foreign auto plants have a good per capita income and many of the localized banks did not take big risks on funky mortgages...Ozarks is a good example...if all the banks followed their example, would we not be having this financial mess.
