I wouldn't touch this personally. If I had to chose I'd go short. But what do I know. Commodity driven stock and appears to be priced in line now. I wouldn't care too much about ONE analyst who put a low estimate to begin with.

nice.


SCL for you home gamers.

Hey BOTD,

How do you choose which options to pick. Lets say you know the month you want, and the stock you want... how do you decide which strike price to purchase ?

for example... why the 80's on COP ?

Thanks!

I nailed MHO , -7% right now. Completely unsure about RNWK tho, get out if you're scurred.

BTW, I covered MHO -7% it popped back up to -1%, I sold it short again and now its in freefall. LULZ

jd said...

Bailed on my RNWK short, real small loss due to commission. I reversed my position, it is 16.87 right now, I expect a pre-close rise so I bought some of it to make my money back and then some pre-close. Or I might even hold them after close and see if they meet or beat expectations.

jd said...

6.87 I mean.

jd- that MHO was money!!!

Nice.

PH = ouch

I just bought puts on CAB, me thinks a lot of families were forced to cancel their camping trips.

jd said...

I just pissed most of today's gains away on puts of CAB. YAY! hahah RNWK barely missed estimates, but just barely, so not sure how market will react, it wasn't bad, it wasnt great so who knows.

jd said...

hmmm actually I was victm of media spin.. they aren't worthless puts.. they had a nice loss but made estimates. I was hoping for a trainwreck though. heh heh

BUY ON THE DIP said...

like your style jd!

corbradog,

we usually go with OTM calls, but we've been burned so much recently that we went with the 80's on COP cause it was about the price of the stock, less risk.

p.s. today was interesting, we expected more, ...but this is earnings game time, and PH screwed us.

cheers, and happy month end.
