idiots calling for $550 or less by today's opex, what happened to your "max-pain" theories all of a sudden?
I can see new highs here as early as July if not sooner, we are at the "knee" of the chronological technology curve, broadly speaking, and GOOG's float has been under lock-down since earnings last April.
Still under-owned by funds, believe it or not, mobile search is the next frontier that GOOG will dominate. I expect GOOG to double from these levels in 10-12 months.
Hey, max pain is never 100%. If it were everyone would use it and there would be less uncertainty in the market and hence lower volatility. It can be and has been a useful marker for options expiration, but never has it or should it be your sole guide. As far as suing posters on the board, it's foolhardy to invest strictly by what is posted here. Due diligence is always needed. That said occasional good leads have been put forth here. It's kinda like panning for gold, lots of sand for a few nuggets. BPJ
