19th- phew. Now for a major surprise or better than expected compared to Urban / American Eagle folks.
I gave up long ago. Don't look for intelligent dialogue or a decent thesis on message boards, unless you are a contrarian that looks for bs to equate to a good investment. I do learn from others ignorance I must say.
Every reply appears to be about something else. I give up with filtering the bs- thanks for an unproductive off task board- why don't ya'll talk politics and fox news stuff.
The fact that all the focus is on the success of one movie say's a lot about the analysts and investors involved. Beyond Rachevsky, who owns most of the company, hence the low volume. If Divergent bombs, a great buying opportunity will arise and the compy will try again and again until they discover the sweet spot for a franchise or they can just go back to making money on movies in the 1 to 50 M budget range and forget the 1 or 2 a year larger budget films. But the risk seems worth it if they find another franchise. Heck they could turn into a TV studio if they want and forget movies or ramp up the CBS joint venture with TV Guide or go full time at creating content for Epix.
Heard something about Cuban and Montana, but not sure it they where Superbowl adds. Hoping for a superficial pop to the stock if they create buzz for the adds again. Expecting a fantastic earnings report and love the way the CEO has a seeming disdain for the analysts the way some coaches hate the press. Sketchers is gonna catch up to the dominant Nike and others that are overpriced.
ShapeUps are history for SkX, but think I saw an Asian woman wearing them as a fashion statement- the hipsters love em I think. The shape ups in a way made this opportunity and I think they have learned to not overextend on any single product / pursuit- beyond footwear.
Expire 3/22 and estimated earnings is 17th to 21st. THe last earnings was Dec 4th, not sure why it's not earlier? 30 calls. Went crazy on Sketchers calls also.
Thinking there was some retail fear in the air not long ago-was it poor Dec sales (?). I loaded up on 30 / Feb calls and some 2015's. Hope to heck that the earnings report is in fact prior to the Feb 22nd expiration. Since this is a recovery story from the old shape ups, expecting a beat. Then there is the reaction to the Super Bowl adds to anticipate. Actually bought more than I wanted- so hope it works out- had bids for 1.20 and 1.25 and got em both. Such low volume also- just has a strange feel to it- could not pass it up. Cheers
Where is the press release for the JP Morgan highlights? Sorta like to have a reason or justification for a 9% POP.
Mulally is saying future of auto's- all over Bloomberg- 700 lbs lighter, stronger- yikes. Just got my AA options last week. Same time I was trying to get CBST but did not before the 6% pop today. THe freaking military uses it, then it goes to market. Imagine if it goes the way of the internet.
I don't get that there is no call option volume at all on this- almost non existent. The press release was very very positive- maybe too positive?
hope your right, the new last trade on the Aug $75 and Jan $80 call option quotes are mine- when I traded them, it took quite a while for then new price to show up- thought I lost a little over a thousand dollars to start.
