Congrats to us longs of course on the nice earnings and move up in price. For me it is a 1/5 to 1/6 amount of my primary portfolio, so I almost lightened up a bit before earnings due to the previous lowering of numbers a bit, but just decided to buy 5 $70 Feb puts instead. And since that amount was not very costly compared to the rise in gain from shares rising, it was a wise endeavor. I see now why people do buy a few puts as a strategy, and can be a good idea in volatile times. That way you can hold the stock for a dividend through it. With SLB being a top performer though, if you are patient long term, those puts may not be necessary of course. Anyway, what a huge surprise the big gains today, and hope the rise continues on up to $80 and higher!
