I just pulled my option sell-to-close orders because I was afraid they'd get hit and I'd miss out.
Remember the story about Merv Griffin buying a casino early on after AC legalized gambling, and he went down to the counting room one day and there was so much cash coming in they couldn't count it fast enough so it was literally stuffed into barrels they had to keep out in the hall?
That's what today feels like.
Remember what subsequently happened to Merv's casino? Lesson learned. I'll be vigilant after today.
What options are you holding? I am long 25 of the Jan 2014 $32 calls. I have the same feeling as you. I am up 70% on my trade and I just keep hearing the saying, "Bears make money, Bulls make money and Pigs get slaughtered." I hear it over and over in my head. I don't want to lose my profits but at the same time I know that I have a year and a half for this to continue up. I know I'll sell then it will run up to $35. The whole dividend does concern me as I am not sure what the option prices will do. I am considering selling half my position at a double and holding the rest so I am playing with the house's money. What do you think?
