Since my original post from early March. i started off with 100k borrowed money. I went up to 300k then lost most of them down to 150k or so. Today I closed everything including AAPL before market closed. AAPL was showing signs of run up and negative engulfing sign. Oh yes, my value of 100k is NOW worth 455k as of today. I have opened another position for S&P 500 weekly option as of today after I sold my AAPL. And by the way, 80% winning streak really doesn't exist unfortunately. I had to make many adjustments. So my apology for bragging about 80% success rate.
I am blessed and thankful that I have been very lucky trading options. I am also blessed I sold AAPL without being greedy and sold before the market closed. Will AAPL options again once it settles down.
I didn't want to gamble so I also sold ISRG 510 calls expiring this week. Only made 35k profit but had Ii held on I would've made 145k total profit! DAMN!!!
Just like MSFT, CSCO, INTC and all others. AAPL has already split numerous time and they recently have been placed in Dow Jones. It's ominous but I don't see AAPL going up like they used to any longer unless they come out with a brand new gadget but watch, iphones, tablets are all old tech trying to be new just doesn't work anymore.
Caligula1110: about how much do you spend on purchasing iTunes music from Apple store, per month or per year on the average?
Are you serious? Google is working on numerous products and services at this time. They also have been selling their own version of phones, they have amassed the ad spaces by giving away free Android OS, self-driving vehicles, Chromebooks, Chromecasts, glasses, and etc. Yes, yes, some are not out in the market yet but as we all know stock prices are valued at what they will become in the future. Google is growing with all those innovations but again Apple is just still stuck with iPhones?!
Tesla is still a brand new market for the higher end electric cars. There are other electric cars but not as high end as Tesla. Yes, Tesla is one product but they are still in infancy stage such as when iPhone was 10 years ago. In other words, Tesla will have much more room to grow where as iPhones are already saturated throughout. Upgrades to what? To the same iPhone again and again while others with less expensive phones are offering the same or even better? I'm just saying iPhones can't last forever as we humans need something new to quench our thirst for new innovations.
Correction, 110 is really not a strong support at all. I see 122 as average support, 112 average and 105 as stronger support. Good luck.
No! Relax and buy again when the dust is settled. Don't chase! There will be good opportunities to buy again.
How many of you bought short term Calls and is now worthless? What strike and expiration?
So you did straddle. And it was good that you had tight and not $10 apart. I used to gamble like that but needed Aapl to swing 10% on either direction but as we all know Aapl rarely ever jump that high after earnings. No I stayed away and sold my 127 weekly calls right before the earnings barely made any profits but no losses.
Amazon has everything I can purchase and they are so good at taking care of your concerns if you directly purchased items that was shipped from Amazon and no the individuals. I used iPhone 3 about 7 years ago and then switched to Androids so I could purchase unlocked phones directly from Amazons to use on any carriers that takes sim cards. With iPhones you'd have a hard time getting them unlocked and if you did the carrier will know and will charge additional fees for suing iPhones. This is one of the many reasons I don't use Apple products anymore. Apple makes it very inconvenient to use their stuff first by jacking up their prices and having all these little restrictions.
It all has to do with what customers are doing and where the future is headed. I shop through Amazon all the time from housewares to computers, cell phones, tablets and such.
Good for you. One thing though, I've learned, is that just when you think you got the market figured out but it comes back and kick you so hard that it humbles you all over again. So be careful
tell me about it. My goodness! I thought the run up on AMZN was done back in 1999 when it was going up like crazy but I guess it still has much life left. It's 1999 all over again! LOL!
I actually returned their Amazon Fire phone it was junk due to NOT allowing you to transfer all your contacts from your sim card to their phone. I was talking about purchasing other phones like Samsung, Sony, LG, HTC and etc. All unlocked so I can use with my carrier.
Cook is riding on the coat tail of Jobs and whatever he's going to present in the future will be hallow and empty. Cook was hired by the most egotistical alpha male Jobs so Cook is a Yes-man and not someone like Jobs who is a genius andand an innovator. Jobs was great as a marketer and with visions but definitely not someone who knows how to hire a person like him to take over his reign. We all remember Jobs hired John Sculley and it was a disaster and now this Cook is nothing but a Yes-man to please Jobs and someone who is not meant to be a leader. Cook will fail without someone else taking charge and this someone else must have brash,, leadership skills and uncanny vision.
