Jan 2015 $400 puts sell for $7.60
why isn't anyone selling these...I fist posted weeks ago, when they were $10 that this was easy money.
Maybe the market acknowledges geo/political risk between China and Japan, as well?
some posted that Roth is PPHM cheerleader but Roth in the past also downgraded PPHM...so Roth seems to be neutral and makes their opinion on facts
Even when the stocks runs, this premium will continue to fall, allowing anyone to TRADE UP...closing out the previous sale if one choses.
In Jan , the present market stock price call options strike price had a 10% premium...today it has a 8.6% premium...
Today, the Jan 2015 $530 calls ONLY sell for $43
In Jan 2014 the Jan 2015 $550 calls sold for $55
so this is a very good sign
no one wants to be a victim. So, how does one fight back?
1. Holding tow blocks of shares: trading and investing...This has been posted many times by yours truly...
2. Holding stock and cheap calls. the next run, you have option to sell one to pocket the profit and hold the core position.
3. when it doubles, sell half if unsure.
the number rule is "Everyone wets their beak"
but the market makers here got greedy...thus no volume, no movement because everyone sold covered calls for big premium
1/4 point move in the 10 year is a HUGE call.....
I just read my old old posts...yes...i called it!
now, I can sign off
take what the market offers...
"a stiff branch snaps in the wind."
It was shown using the sale of covered calls for $50+ worked last year...return was 15.67% agains t 6.54% for those who did not only on one trade.
This year, it already put 15% in people's pockets with three trades...ask DaVinci
