This volatility (and subsequent ridiculous options premiums) is a trader's dream. Somebody's getting cold feet and it's definitely not the traders.
With GT being so fragile and susceptible to volatility, there's no chance it trades flat on earnings/conference call day. Some nobody on some obscure website posts a rumor and the stock moves 8%. Don't want you to get blindsided Monday but there's going to be at least a 12-15% intraday swing so pick a side and hang on.
Great point... finally! If you're up 50%(ish) and don't want to take the tax hit by selling and buying back inside 30 days, I totally get it.
See? It doesn't take big words and 6 paragraphs from a big mouth to make a valid point.
C'mon Chelle. Use those stellar copy-n-paste skills and find us something to pump this up. Dig boy, dig. It's leaking and I need $1.15 for those Mar $12.50s. Maybe I should go to Cali or Mung. They carry much more weight in here. You're kinda like their ugly step-child. By the way, when was it again that you were going to stop responding to me?
Good, it's becoming more and more difficult trying to reason with complete stupidity. I'm a trader, not a short. Big difference and even if you're basis is $5, I've done in 3 months what it took you 2 years to do. I sold a ton of March $12.50s and $14s calls this week with more coming if you guys could possibly pump it again by tomorrow so at least when the stock does go down like you predict, 1 of us will be cheering the "buying opportunity" and the other will be car shopping.
You're correct, it is anybody's guess but if your "guess" is that it's going to go down like Chelle says, why would you then be stupid enough to hold it through earnings? Because you're already up big? And what, you think the investor Gods would like it if you donated a little bit of it back? Just stupid #$%$ mentality.....period.
Don't give me any credit. Means nothing coming from garbage like you anyway. Any why would I pay $600 to fly to #$%$ Utah to see a piece of sh+t when I can just look in the toilet for free? Same thing.
You're just trying to cover your #$%$. If you were happy if it "only goes down" a certain amount, why would you be dumb enough to hold it through earnings when you could just buy it back for $12 or better Monday? Just stupid reasoning from a stupid person. That's why you sit there and brag about how much you've made over the long term while the traders are kicking your #$%$. "I know the stock is going to go down after this run up but I'm just going to sit on my shares and take it in the #$%$ like the rest of the cowards".
There's your cop-out. If the stock goes up Monday, big win. If the stock tanks, you still think it's a win because it's a "buying opportunity". The stupid reasoning on this board is just amazing. If a pro investor every read some of your stupid remarks, they'd think you were joking. "I'm fine giving back X % since we had such a good run up"..... What the #$%$ is THAT?? Board is full of cowardly traders just like Chellle.
What a complete #$%$. You'll be happy if you make through earnings only losing 7% from today's high?? I've been telling you for months I'm shorting calls this week because I think they get hammered Monday and you've been calling me every name you can think of. Now, you're saying you'll be happy only losing X amount Monday??? Nice backtracking DJ. I thought you were a coward before for not taking my bet. I didn't realize it was because you thought I was right.
Oh, I just got it...sorry.
I can't recall the last time I had a good "swift and unilateral resolution" but unfortunately I like girls. I'm sure we would have had a nice ski weekend if I "played for your team". Thanks for the offer though.
now I'm really confused. How am I going to ski after your "swift and unilateral resolution"? You mean you'll let me live???
Utah? Couldn't it be somewhere better than effing Utah? Aren't you Mormons supposed to be nice? So we're going to fight in the baggage claim area of an airport?? You haven't really thought this through, have you?
