    A good short?

    Looking for some opinions on this... I know these guys just made a few moves, but would this be a could short (or some October or Jan Puts) at these prices? All input is welcome[except for trolls]..thanks

    • I think the low volume on this should spook any investor plus the 17% short ratio

    • at the same time, buying some shares and writing calls to collect the premiums wouldn't be a bad idea either...if they do get bought out you wont lose anything

    • i think youre better off with a straddle, take yesterdays swings for example, if you can time it right you'd make out well...

      yahoo rarely falls below 15, the only reason it went to $11 last year was because it was rumored that Alibaba had hosed them on yahoo's investment...it turned out to be false, i think theres much more upside than downside...yahoo, under normal conditions, would rarely go below $15...and they made a decent spike after last earnings season...yahoo tends to perform well during earnings lately because the market expects very little from them...

      to be honest, id take a stab at shorting apple instead...aapl has no steady revenue unless they come up with the newest and greatest idea...and that cant keep up forever as competition is getting tighter every day...yhoo already had its prime and melted down...yhoo is in recovery mode now
