sure has. For most, they get wiped out in a crash. For me it was during an incredible rally, found a way to pick the wrong time to go in oil stocks. It is only money I suppose, most people in the world are born poor and die poor.
Thank you, and good luck also! I am thinking 15/25 call spread if I can get for under 2.50.
You could be right! Then if CLDN goes to 200 or something I am in bankruptcy, but it has happened to far better men than I.
Not going to fall for that one again, I ain't no Charlie Brown. PGN took my 100K down to 24K.
I am looking at investing my entire account (24K) in CLDN options. Looking at either spreads (maybe the 10/40, or 20/40) or just outright calls, perhaps the 20. It's a complete gamble but I need a big time winner in the worst way.
That makes some sense. How much did those calls cost you? How many contracts? I cannot buy many of the 12.5, maybe 40.
Thanks for those thoughts. So given that, what is your position? Do you hold the stock, or call options? What % of your net worth do you have in this one? It's still speculative as we know.
Im sorry I don't understand what your trade is. Are you saying you bought puts, or sold them?
Wow- congrats on BLUE! What a move! I guess that shows me CLDN could easily go over 60 and my "strategy" would lead to crushing losses. Of course it could also go to 0!
I am thinking about this, it's true it would be a chance of getting blown out of the water, but not a huge chance I think.
At 10 or lower, you lose $1800
At 15, you make 3200
At 20, you make 8200
At 25, you make 13200
At 30, you make 18200
At 35, you make 23200
At 40, you make 28200
At 45, you make 23200
At 50, you make 18200
At 55, you make 13200
At 60, you make 8200
At 65, you make 3200
At 70, you lose 1800
At 80, you lose 11800 (yikes!)
At 100, you lose about 30K. In other words, devastation.
Any thoughts? Am I crazy to even consider this?
20/30 would be 5 bagger if it closes over 30, 20/40 would be 7 bagger. So I suppose 20/30 makes more sense. Also 15/20 is a possibility, a triple or so.
Seeking alpha pro says it is. The stock seems to be trading 11X 2015 earnings and 9X 2016. That's 20% growth, so maybe a 25 p/e is warranted?
Wish I could read.
Could be. Personally I was doing OK until I got put through the grinder by PGN. But I just don't understand, when all the stats out there show that traders generally go broke, how they can all be making 5% a month! It sounds so easy by that is 70%+ per year. That means 10K, in 10 years, would become 810K! 100K would be 8 million?! How can it be?!
I'm not sure a lot of folks are aware just how many people between the ages of 25 and 40 are just living off the markets. I don't know what they're doing but they all claim to be making 5-10% per month so it must be incredibly leveraged. Yellen cannot let these people down. I mean Buffett made 21% per year and these people with no experience in the markets are making more than triple that? Something doesn't add up.
