All you pumpers were saying the same thing about the GOOG case after filings and we know how that turned out.
ZTE has the money to litigate litigate litigate, including bankroll from the China government if needed. They are probably offering VRNG some low-ball settlement so VRNG could stay in business and they can tell the judge "look, we tried". ZTE is the only chip VRNG has to play. Not is a good position to negotiate.
I have stock I bought in the 30s and ITM calls that don't expire until March 6. I would like to sell a bit into this strength. Would you sell some stock or some calls?
looked poised to make me some good money this week. I wake up and they are basically worthless on no specific news bad news to TWTR. Tough tough casino game.
I have $40 calls that expire this Friday (Jan 30) and bought a week ago for 0.81 when the stock was under $37. Now it is "in the money" but the value is only 0.92. Why such a lousy appreciation? Even when I win it seems I lose.
high 60s in March. no doubt. Its all lining up. On Feb 5 they will show an uptick in monetization - mare than expected - and just like facebook this thing will rocket. All they need to do is show hint of monetization of these ad efforts. Plus buyout rumors and prediction of CEO replacement will provide additional tailwinds. All lining up
I bought $40 Jan 30 exp options last week at this time for 0.81 and the stock was in the 36s. Now almost 40 and still about same price for the option. Crazy. seems clear this is heading to mid 40s next week.
OK, so the issue isn't I need to talk to my broker - because my broker would not have an answer either.
I do know how options work. I know they lose value over time. But do you not think that it is unusual for my options to lose 40% after two days when I still have nine days of trading left, only 2 dollars from my stock price, AND when the price of the stock moved TOWARD my call strike? So the stock was moving toward my strike price AND at the same time the options were dramatically moving lower in value, much lower than to just be accounted for by decay - ODD!! - IS that basically saying, even though Twitter can move $2 a day at the drop of a hat (would you be shocked if this closed at 40 even today, and 44 or so in two weeks?), this thing has little chance to ever see 40 in the next two weeks? The relative movement makes no sense (even with decay), so I am trying to see if I should be reading into something by this weird movement. MAybe load up on puts or short stock here.
