I sole some shares a while back and missed this up move, based on current analyst projections which sound a little conservative, I would like to buy some $35 calls, (looking at Jan 2015) and maybe sell some $40 (same Jan 2015. anybody else looking at options this far out?
wonder if those of you who see current prices as buying opportunity are selling any puts and willing to lock in shares at lower prices. I wish some options would come out that go farther than just april 2014. thoughts?
Anyone else holding shares through panel but buyings major put protection? Tough to by puts after stock goes from 7 to 5. I'm seeing it as the only option if going to hold all of shares through the event. Held it from 5 to 5. I'll be sick if I wait until zero. Still long,
I've watched nti for 8 or 9 months, finally bought the drop last week before the fire was announced. I bought in a taxable account and my understanding is that nti is an MLP? Are the tax consequences a nightmare for these types of distributions? I was told that I may have to file a tax return in every single state that nti operates in? I know they just have the single refinery site but can somebody that owns shares in a taxable account please clarify this for me. love the stock thanks
It says asphalt is another worry, and that marathon, nti , delek are most exposed to losses on asphalt . Haven't seen this mentioned anywhere on board what are thoughts. I bought shares today before reading this. How significant can losses on asphalt be?
Anybody selling puts? Im looking at 2015 $30. Looks like can get between 800$ to 1000$ per contract. Attractive if 35 to37$ is the bottom

Looking to set up call spread, buying jan 2015 5$, and sell the 7s? Or buy 7s and sell 10s? Lot of time between now and jan 2015. Anyone else doing similar trade for more upside and less risk?
Im a buy and holder , but interested in what bulls expect for share price in coming 6 months to 1 year as the fed debates tapering. I am holding shares i have for the long term and would love to add more on a correction.this board seems littered with ultra short term traders.
Im looking at barrons info on xco, pe ratio says n/a , is this bc of past losses and no earnings? Price to book ( current says 9.86). Tangible book value says .32.

Im waiting for new month of options to come out, anybody buying any otm sept 17.50 calls?
In case it just drifts and drifts
Would like to buy calls with tthe proceeds. But like to wait for a drop in price. Just windering if any are taking on the risk of buying future shares at say 8$ if the stock has tanked below that.
My question, and i dont have a large position, about 5% of my account, is that instead of holding my long shares through the runup, or drop, dont i risk the same loss if i sell all shares and sell a similar amount of say $5 puts? Im looking at april 5$ puts that are pricey enough. If ziop tanks, i buy shares at $5, which is exactly where i am now, and if i also purchase the 7,8, 10$ calls i get much more upside for the same $ risk. Am i misunderstanding something about the options market?
