Own a 100 shares at $170 and sold a March $220 call for $1000. So obviously that trade is dead money until it gets exercised. Can you request a short call be exercised or do you just have to sit and wait to get taken out at random or at expiration? Anyone?
And there it is ladies and gentlemen. The hotshot trader who was going to make 9.5 million has lost his rear end. LOL and I told you so.
Just remember who it is that is selling them, and remember the tightly controlled float. Those guys are suckers. And don't talk to me about valuation. Money is free we print billions every day. That is meaningless and the road to ruin for traders. Look at the markets we are in. And these guys want to trade on logic? LOL they can kiss those options premiums goodbye. Watch.
A car with a mechanical problem occurring during its lifetime?? This is unprecedented!!! Alert the media!! Car needs brake maintenance!!! Oh the humanity!!! When will these disasters stop??
It's unlikely, but it is an overstatement to call it impossible, They (AAPL) are sitting on a boatload of cash. And they can buy it and still maintain the current brain power at TSLA. Just because you buy a car company, it doesn't mean you have to fire everyone working there and learn how to build cars.
Batteries never just catch fire. It is always the result of operational abuse. When it happens, of course the user is going to claim otherwise. What else are they going to do, own up to being clueless?
Very hard to short a stock with a float so small. You would have to be working at a broker dealer to get a borrow here. In other words you are a liar.
