Yinz know, of course, what that means for INTC tomorrow, huh? S E V E N days in a row of a plunging stalk.
marco the genius : - ) INTC is currently overvalued by at least 50%. Otherwise, why would Stacy Smith dump his freebies and head for the hills before y'all folks got a chance, huh?
Da weaver only makes $0.15/post, and that's his only source of income . Wally's large problem is that INTC IR is reducing his fee and may drop his contract after Labor Day.
marco the genius : - ) Perhaps we can start a fund for WW when he loses the INTC contract. Thems of Yinz that wanna help em out, send your contributions to marco @ paypal, and I'll see that he gets exactly what he deserves, okay?
I never found IV correlated to anything with at a level of significance that would make ya money. It used to work on INTC when INTC was leaking earnings numbers to one of the Hugest insider traders of this century.
I know some real Geeky Quants trying to do what you do. They often lecture me on all their right calls, but, they often leave out the ones that missed.
marco the genius : - ) I betcha you don't trade on that theory. Ya gotta be on the inside, or know somebody who is, to make money playing that game.
Assumption: You sold the Put
you idiot, that ratio is not necessarily a bearish signal. In fact, it's the best way to buy a stalk on the cheap, assuming you wanna buy, of course. If ya really want the stock and buy the put, you paid less for it if the stock went down and you got assigned. If. the stock went uppity, guess what, you made money. Then, you can do it all over again, again and again. That games for Bulls only.
marco the genius :-) Assuming you're not hedging, calls are a Bear's gambit, not puts. Gawd, how much longer must I suffer these quantitative fools, huh?
I'm only reading the posts of rational people, you know, thems with a brain and stuff. The rest of you irrational pumper people can go to HELLO with da O of course.
marco the genius :-) Go ahead, talk about marco behind his back and thumb down his insight, original, informative posts, marco has Yinz on ignore, and y'all know who Yinz are.
ITBMA, me and you are doing Gawd's work. Only atheists are Long INTC.
marco the genius :-) One day Gawd will raise his mighty right hand and slam it down hard in the INTC BTOs. I'd do it myself, but, my hand is a bit sore from from beating up an INTC Semper Fi who disagreed with me.
SumBuddy nose sumthin
marco the genius :-) Another BAD hair for INTC, .....AGAIN. Just when Yinz thought INTC couldn't go down anymore, it goes DOWN some more.
If you're still here, you're dumb money.
marco the genius :-) marco warned yaz, remember? When Big Daddy's ca$h is gone, Yinz can buy INTC for a song.
Things could go terribly wrong in a matter of minutes: Earthquakes in California, Protests in Missouri, beheadings in Iraq, Ukraine invaded by the Ruskies, and Yellen pressured to raise rates.
marco the genius :-) Any one of the events listed above could turn this irrational market into a nightmare, unless, of course, yer short.
Alex_dumb_bum, that hedging strategy is less effective when INTC's stock trends higher, because it eats up the conversion profit. A lotta companies used to just hand ya the short along with the CB as a nice thank you. Kenny Griffin is one of the bestest experts on this hedging strategy, but, Mr Griffin nearly BKed Citadel five years ago. His fund lived another day because he cleverly used that short strategy on E-Trade, destroying the shareholders for nearly 3 years before he took his money and ran.
marco the genius :-) CBs are usually bad for shareholders, but, they're great for management to keep paying bonuses and high salaries without using existing cash. That catches up later.
3 cases of market madness victims
1 Mary Fatbrush: Mary bought AAPL when it was cheap and tripled her money. Then, her car broke down, her dog ran away, her boyfriend dumped her and she caught Ebola. She's now dead, but, she has lotsa money.
2 Sam Winkelstein: Sam bought a new Beemer, found a new squeeze, and got a promotion at work. Then, Sam got lucky on PNRA and made 6x his initial investment. Soon after, Sam wrecked his car, caught a STD from his squeeze, and got downsized at work.
3 George Stewbash: George used to was a waiter at Frank's Super Hot Dogs. He won a lottery for $10 million, after which he invested it all in Tesla when it was really cheap. With over $39 million, George thought he was on easy street; however, cops came to his door and arrested George for an earlier armed robbery. George eventually beat the charge, because the witnesses all died or disappeared, but ended up broke after he paid his legal fees.
marco the genius :-) Maybe it's a zero sum game, if yer stock went up, BAD things might be around the corner. If I owned INTC, I'd worry.
The market transition will commence to begin when the 5-yr TB real rate equals zero, or the rate of inflation. Currently, it's 2.0, cpi, YOY. The other metric is the real rate in the 10-yr, currently 0.42 or 2.42-2.0 cpi. When the 10-yr gets 1% above the cpi, get whatcha can and get outta Dodge before high noon.
marco the genius :-) Otherwise, expect to face Marshal Matt Dillion in the street. BTW, Marshall Dillon kilt over 1,645 men to death in the street with his sure handed pistol. He never once kilt no Black man, armed or unarmed.
Right B4 the market peaks
After which investors freak
Suddenly yer investments leak
as lower prices stocks will seek
making lows another week
marco the genius :-) Yinz feeling a bit weak, huh? The trend looks bleak according to the geeks.
Well, if you simply must know: Monetary Theory, text: Patinkin, Money, Interest & Prices.
marco the genius :-) Don't get too nosey ore ya might get a visit bye Da Skull & Crossbones. Actually, alex, that's Yale Lock School, where they taught us how to pick the locks on WS.
You have weigh too much money in INTC for yer own good.
marco the genius :-) Sell 1/2 and take a chill pill. BTW, Bobby was me professor @ veritas et lux, and I got an A.
