So did you combine a bullish call spread and a bearish put spread? From the looks of Max Pain, it should be below 7 by the next expiration date.
The BLS have reported the current job openings to 5.2 million. The highest amount since they started keeping track in 2000. So, this should mean the job postings should have more revenue than any time during the past decade and a half. Unfortunately, Monster has lost to the competition. Revenues are at their lowest since 2000 when they should be the highest since 2000.

Just as I said, it looks like we will finish under 7 for option expiration this week. Tons of calls about to expire worthless if this keeps moving down as well as quite a few puts. Now just looking at what appears to be a bullish call spread set up for December. However, there is a good chance we will go below 5 for all the calls to expire worthless.
Looks like the Max Pain theory worked again. Thousands of calls at the 7 and 8 strike price are now worthless. All the puts below 7 are gone as well. Only a handful of calls made it this month. On the December, Will those 2000 $5's be next?
I still think it will be under 5 by December. Still going by the Max Pain theory. 2500 calls at the 5 strike...we should see five or below. That's just how the options have been running. However, this next reporting is going to be huge. They had their big "New" product launch in April of last year. Now all the sales of the new products are coming up for renewal. If we continue to see revs decline, I really don't know how they are going to reverse the trend. The 85 million sale will get them above 200 for a quarter (although that was not the way anyone was expecting to achieve that number). If the revenues keep falling, I don't know how that Zacks article can support the price tripling.
It seems to me that they need the cash. As I remember they did not just get $100 million right away. I believe there were conditions to the loan and there was a time period with benchmarks. Obviously the revenues have continued to fall, they will continue now that another revenue stream is gone. I wonder if daddy was about to cut off their allowance. I guess that 85 million will now give them their 200 million quarter they have been talking about. But whittling away at the revs is not helping. 85 million is a terrible deal. Should have been at least 10 more million. But I guess you can't negotiate when you are in the "beggars can't be choosers" mode.
November will be a game changer, Yes, it is up 15% over the 5 day chart, but i just recovered from the losses from the September 17 drop. The anticipation is for the earnings from the third quarter. They did the huge product launch second quarter last year. So all the new technology has been out there for a year. Because it is on a subscription basis, we should be able to tell if clients are happy, or did not find the ROI by the renewals and cancellations. If the renewals look solid, they the revenues should follow. But, if the products are not as well received, the revs will dip and we will see sub 5 by the end of the year.
In the SA article it was mentioned that Monster has bought several call options to protect against the conversion. Is there a reason that they would not have to submit a Form 4 for that?
First...your IP address.
Second, I have told people several times I am more than happy to share what went down. My manager, was sued by CareerBuilder for noncompete violation, fired three people on his new team, so he could bring three of his buddies from CareerBuilder. This was over the course of 5 months. End result...6 weeks after the third termination, he left for another position. ALL THREE that he hired LEFT within 6 months. So, do you REALLY think it was the reps or MAYBE it was not just the stupid manager but the senior managers that did nothing because they thought the CB employees would bring business over without being caught. THEY WILL DO ANYTHING FOR REVENUES EVEN IF IT MORALLY THE WRONG THING...so I will bash this till the bitter end!
Since 4th quarter 2014 numbers they kept on talking about "increase in bookings"...well we are now THREE quarters later and revenues are still decreasing. LIES ALL LIES. This company is on a death spiral. The tipping point is here. Next quarter revs are going to be worse. As I said in January...revs will decrease by $100 million this year. IF 4th quarter revs are $138 million... I will be spot on. BOOOOM BABY!
That's all they have. Bengie has been using that "Let It Go" song from that cartoon for about a year now. I guess he thinks that is a good put down. He needs to write some new material. Just do what I do, when he responds just flag it for violating community guidelines and they will delete it. IF you look at all his past posts he has nothing of any substance. Hopefully he has been watching the Disney channel and found a new cartoon that he can use to put you down.
The CFO left the company. You know, the one that looks at all their numbers. Oh, and the CEO left the company this time last year...Oh and three other executives left the company this year. You got a quick pop at 6.05, take your quick hit and RRRRUUUUUUNNN!!!!
167 Million in revs...that is with the new products and the aggregator. WOW, guess the subscriptions are not renewing after all. That is the lowest quarter in revs they have seen in years. I guess when you lay off $22 million worth of employees over the year, the profits go up, but they have NOT had a YOY increase in revs for quite some time. I know I was kidding earlier this year when I said that they would see revs decline by 100 million this year, but if they don't do over 138 million in the 4th quarter...I will be SPOT ON!
