Most of the stock purchases by Frost were indirect transactions. Maybe exercising options?
Should these transactions be given the same consideration as if they were direct transactlons?
Did you notice the large trade of the Jan 2016, 12.5 calls on Friday? If that was a buy to open trade, the open interest would now be over 60k for that one option. Someone is making a large bet that ARCP is going to have a big recovery in 2015.
What about the Panasonic HX-A500H. This is a wearable 4K camcorder which is waterproof.
There are numerous other wearable waterproof cams available.
going into the end of this quarter.
I agree! There are a lot of stupid people on this board. When they do not know an answer, they have to resort to name calling.
and how to prepare for it. If you miss it, the show will be uploaded to Youtube in a couple of days.
He claims that he had predicted the 2008 financial crisis.
The Volkswagen short squeeze in 2008 is a good read. Many consider it the greatest short squeeze in history. The shares ended up increasing by 5x during it's peak. German billionaire Adolf Merckle, one of the 100 richest people in the world, was trapped in a short position during the short squeeze. He lost so much that he ended up killing himself by jumping in front of a train
I bought some Aug 655/635 bear put spreads for a debit of 5.70
These should give me some time for a price movement. I like spreads because draw down will be minimal if it continues to rise.
Six years ago when oil peaked around 150, the experts were predicting it to go even higher by 30%.
Today, they are predicting oil to go even lower by 30%.
Class action lawsuit over arsenic levels in wine. The cheaper the wine, the higher the arsenic level. Just a glass or two of these arsenic-contaminated wines a day over time could result in dangerous arsenic toxicity to the consumer.
Now, is there a relationship between the price of flooring and the level of formaldehyde?
Take a look at the 5 day chart for last week comparing GOOG to GOOGL.
On Wed when the shares were rising, the spread narrowed.
On Thursday, when the selling began, the spread widened.
On Friday morning when the selling continued, the spread appeared to be the widest for the week when the panic selling was near it's peak.
When the stock is being sold off, especially during panic selling, it appears that the spread will widen. Is this because those who own both shares will most likely sell their GOOG shares before selling their GOOGL shares dues to the perception that they are of lesser value?
When the stock price is rising, it appears that the spread will narrow. Is this because of the perception that they are getting a bargain due to the discounted price of GOOG relative to GOOGL?
With MNKD at 6.23, I am looking at these options strategies:
Jan 2016 7/12 call spreads for a debit of around 1.00
Jan 2016 3/7 call spreads for a debit of around 1.35
Strategy #1 has a max profit potential of 400% with a share price of $12
If you own shares, the equivalent share price to achieve 400% profit would be $31.15
It would be best to scale into this position as the share price declines. As the share price declines, you may also want to consider buying the Jan 2016, 5/10 call spreads.
Strategy #2 has a max profit of 196% with a share price of $7
If you own shares, the equivalent share price to achieve 196% profit would be $18.44
This is a very conservative play because your effective share price would be $4.35
Even if the share price were to drop $2 from the current level, your draw down loss would be very nominal. Should this occur, you could then cover your short calls for a profit and then just hold the long calls.
With MNKD at 6.30, the May 6.00 will only cost you 0.08
This is relatively cheap insurance in case it really tanks tonight.
The May 6.50 calls are also relatively cheap.
It looks like the MMs are not expecting a large move in either direction, but you can never be sure.
From today's close of 525 to the previous high of 700 seems like a monumental challenge to achieve.
The 7 for 1 ratio was carefully chosen so that when it hits 100, AAPL will have again reached it's previous high.
At 565, it is already over 80 post split. It should be no problem for AAPL to achieve 100 this year.
