They talked about this in the morning on Bloomberg, saying FEYE technology did exactly what it was supposed to do, but that the malware was not removed because Target had that feature TURNED OFF. They said the problem could have been stopped the first day. It really was an endorsement for FEYE--not a failure.
Lockup of shares is late next week, so be aware of that. You can buy here and sell the Mar $80 calls for over $2--not bad for 8 days until expiration. If called away, you make a quick $400 and if not you lowered your cost basis by $200. Downside is if the stock has a big run by next Friday, your gains are capped. But not a bad way to ease into a trade.
Has been one ugly stock lately.
Buy some Mar $35 puts and scale in higher if we continue up. They're fairly inexpensive. Yesterday may have been another buying opportunity during a slow climb back to $40.
Wells Fargo near the end of last week was saying they think EVEP may have trouble covering the dividend. I received a call suggesting I sell.
This will be very orderly. Look for stock to finish slightly higher. If you're long, consider selling at least half your position and play with house money.
Take small gains and wait for the next spike as an entry point IMO. This stock is being supported. They will allow some variability, but I doubt seriously you will see it lower than $119 or so today.
I agree, but probably not a safe short. If you believe the stock price doesn't make sense, that just reflects other factors at work that we can't see or control. Some big player at this point is supporting the stock IMO and will collect all the premiums from put holders. After they harvest that $$$ and take their own short positions, they will bring it back down.
And don't look now, but volume is picking up in a market where many stocks are seeing low volume trading. Already have our average daily volume.
