The beautiful thing is even if this stock moves up $1.50-$2.50 next week; I stand to make about 300%. I have 35 days before they expire and only risking $500 so I'm not too worried. Just like going to the casino with this bet.
I'm playing the short term call options, November $30. They are cheap and I bought about 50 for $0.10 a piece. There is a good chance they may expire worthless but worth risking $500 if there is some upside surprise in the report. The sentiment is so negative on the company and expectations are low, a beat may be in the cards. Also, they may give info on the spin off.
Again, I'm making a very risky bet but for only $500. If the stock jumps $5 next week, I stand to make about $5,000.
Activist investor would be very beneficial to individual investors/stock price and would definitely "stir the pot". I have a feeling this quarter may be better than expected since the expectations are so low for the company. Also, they may announce the spin off and the terms of it.
It is rather bad for what reasons I don't know. The company kept guidance but it was spun as if it were "light". I don't buy that. With how other cyber security stocks are trading, I'm shocked that this one trades so low as the others PE ratios are much higher and most are losing money. I wouldn't be surprised if PANW or another one came in and bought VDSI.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Only problem is COP is not moving along with the price of oil. I'm not sure why but Chevron and Exxon were higher today. My January Call options are getting crushed.
I couldn't agree more. Oil was up 3%+ and this along with other oil stock were down or relatively flat. I can't figure out why this closed down so much today and cannot hold any gains. I doubt it is the Poland news. However, it does look like the chart is setting up for a turn to the upside according to the MACD. We will see and I hope it does as I have long call options on this one (January $65).
Market was down and this was up! Looking the chart, the MACD line crossed over the signal line which typically means a move north. This would be assuming there is no negative news released. I bought some $210 short term calls on this indicator yesterday.
That no one is mentioning that the CEO has sold about 350,000 this year alone. This doesn't count the other insiders that have sold shares this year as well.To me, it would seem they would sell shares after their earnings release if they felt it was going to be a good report.
Not sure, but we were in Lowes today and wondering why CREE only sells in Home Depot? It seems like they are pigeonholing themselves. Also, we drove by a new Walgreens and looked at all the Cree bulbs being used to light up the inside of the store. I still feel like that news went unnoticed.
I have a feeling that some great news gets released Monday morning. Market was weak Friday but Apple seemed rather strong. I bought a bunch of $101 weeklys just in case.
That was probably the dumbing thing an "analyst" could say. Apple obsolete in 3 years...the company generates almost $40 billion every 3 months with an extremely loyal following. I think there is more to come than just a new Iphone and watch. I think we see a surprise product/announcement in a month.
