    Nice wish Jonas, but it didn't happen this quarter. It has however set up nicely to become a reality in the next quarter though It's my opinion that this Israeli company has been the victim of some ethno-political boycott. If that's the case, the real losers are the customers who engage in this kind of stupidity and fail to see that they're missing out on the best product in the market segment AND on a huge discount to their current suppliers. It's only a matter of time before they put their petty politics aside. In the meantime growth continues across the board and when the 15 million share repurchase program hits, AUDC could easily come to parity in valuation to it's peers. Stock still grossly undervalued by comparison and recent quarter proves; the outlook is good.

    Sentiment: Buy

  • They simply wont allow the majority of the options that expire in October to be in the money during this last week and 3 days. Expect the 18, 19, 20, 21, 22,23, 25 (I don't think there are any Oct 30s) to all expire worthless.

    Sentiment: Hold

  • HAVE OVER 100 BILLION TO LOSE IF MANNKIND SUCCEEDS (and they will). In the meantime they are going to make things as difficult as possible for Mannkind to launch. There will be bogus press reports, supposed "expert" opinions to slander the company, and of course FDA spokespeople who are bought and paid off by way of marriage whose conflict of interest will keep Obama from ever getting another one of my votes. My list goes on and on. Just "Seller Beware", All is not as it appears to be, thats all Im saying.

  • How did I do it?
    I simply wrote (sold) the October 20 calls against my 10,000 share position in the stock. Because my average price on the stock is 13.50 or so I am already in the money significantly. However, I have no wish to sell the stock now, its just that I don't see it making any big moves until November so I sold the calls at 20. If the stock does close above 20 3 weeks from now, I will still be making 65,000 on my stock, but as an added bonus, I'll will have made an additional 10,000 (I sold the calls an average 1.15 a piece over the past 5 trading days), which gives me an extra 11,500 dollars against my currenty 190,000 holdings. Not bad for 3 weeks. It comes out to around a 5% MONTHLY return. Amortized over a year and its closer to 70%, although I wont be writing more calls after these expire, at least not for a while. Stocks down a tad lately, but I just want to put some alternate opinion out there on the all or nothing short and long crowd. There are ways to play this game without wandering too close to the slaughtering table.
