    look seriously

    If you are part of the 4 million shorts at least buy the $25.00 May calls for protection. With sentiment up, wells fargo beat, GS beat now this could be trouble. I fyou love being short stay there but buy protection. I strattled the calls and puts simpply for a 10% move either way. highly recommend this strategy for highly shorted stocks on earnings day

    • You could be right. I will watch it this AM. No position yet.

    • You could get blown out of the water...check nasdaq.com "Short Interest" link before you short any stock after earnings are released. OZRK has one of the highest float of days to cover short that I have seen...I play only earnings surprises so I review much stock data...so I know what I'm talking about.
      You could buy an in the money put once the stock reaches the daily high. After earnings this stock could have a $2 to $4 daily trading spread so there is room to make some decent money if the put moves $1-$1.50.

    • If you look at OZRKs 2 or 5 year chart you will see there is nothing to indicate a sustained rally. It is not a trader's stock. It has moved nicely in the last two weeks and should move up in the morning. (no gaurantee though)

      Yesterday's buyers will be tomorrow's sellers. OZRK will not have a sustained rally and looks like a good short in the AM. JMHO, we'll see.

    • >OZRK looks like a good short in the morning. Lets see if I put my money where my mouth is or if I chicken out. <

      Seriously!! You'll be out of the market if you're short over the next few weeks. ECSPECIALLY the financials! Look at the surge in AH for financials:

      ETFC = up 8%+
      C = up 10%+
      HBAN = up 10%+
      BAC = up 2%
      FITB= up 3.69%

      Most of these stocks were already up 20-30% on the day (with-out the addition of their AH action). OZRK is going to have a great day!!

      Long 1,100 shares of OZRK!!

      BAC = up

    • OZRK looks like a good short in the morning. Lets see if I put my money where my mouth is or if I chicken out.

    • so me being a newby to this stuff. I purchase OZRK last week and it is now at 25 AH. Should I sell now AH or tomorrow after the bell. Don't get the short, put, calls, etc...stuff
