    What's a good option play here?

    I'm buying Sept calls at $23.. Stock gets an upgrade and goes down on high volume -- what's up with that ?

    • Someone with deep pockets and better research decided to take profits.

      Before we read an upgrade, it is a common knowledge inside, and those who took the position generally take quick profits.

      My first observation today was it is ready for a big move, but looking at today's trading activity I will rater wait until it trades above 23.00 for the whole day.

      Early hour stop loss orders above were filled but there was no new buyers at that price. We will not know unit the option expirations this week.

    • weird action with 2 buy reccomendations today..and high volume... well I firmly believe alot of selling has nothing to do with BX but with other needs.. a lot of people are afraid of this market and just selling for that reason...I EXPECT bew highs this month..the stocactics are in oversold territory and the stock has been acting well with the down market

      Sentiment: Strong Buy
