Puts of PASSION. ~ *SHORT* Exxon Mobil Corporation (Public, NYSE:XOM)

VOTE NO! 

XOMNO... FEB 75s
$1.41 +0.87 (+161.11%)

... XOM
 $76.14 -3.34 (-4.20%)

the DOW is XOM heavy.  DOW 5000-6000. 


the BuyOnTheDip XOM puts "twit out" yesterday, and again at 6am. 

 ** ticker-feed snapshot from StockTwits.com above. 

congrats to Soren & Howard. StockTwits is the real deal.   

p.s.  "i" still own BAC calls and GNW.  not sure why or how?  hedged in a circle.   "we" sat as our BAC "calls of confidence" went from 116%+ to -68%.  options are fun.  i had to hold. BOTD has a "chunky" long term SHORT portfolio.  you know the names. the SHORT SOMETHING list.  DF, PNRA (milk & food) , BBY, BBBY (retail) , KUB, BA (machinery/airplanes) *did you see X today, hmm, heard it's OFF the conviction sell list at Goldman, those confused convictioner/convictionors?!  PCLN, MSFT puts, RIMM puts (techish),  PTR & the XOM puts of passion! (china, oil & more), KMB (the economy & toilet paper, LOL.) .... NITE with some leftover MS "spread the board" puts .... fuck $MS and their "clean book."  ... the BOTD "play" is buy a bunch of "chunky" short positions and trade same-month-calls around those long-term-shorts.  GET SHORT, STAY SHORT.  DOW 5000-6000.  

LONG:  DXO (stop @ cost, $2.36) , DLB (the sound of hedgness?), VIP (the russian runs) ... the only sizable long is NOTHING! 




p.p.s. we also nib'd  some SMN early today.  up 12%, looose stop .... MON was bove $85, pfft.  MON is NOT an $80 stock ...  SMN also gets you "supposedly short" FCX, MON, NUE, DD, X, AA, APD, DOW, NEM etc. 

p.p.p.s.  watch COF.

BOTD did not miss RIM...didn't you hold RIM Feb 50 puts as per doctor's prescription?
I am kicking myself that I made "ONLY" about 170% profit instead of making 700% :) The price of placing the order and being busy in the morning
Very upset with MS puts :)

Fuck smn, just short stocks. Mon not $80.

maximus said...

Any puts worth entering today? :)

Kidd Jones said...

Do you not understand making money both ways? I am a Bi-profiteer. I got the RIMM puts but I was talking about buying the dip, sticks... in other words the 17% drop in RIMM in one day almost like the AAPL drop when Jobs went down. Month later AAPL up 25% from that drop. Bought more at $47.

maximus said...

i just believe the market will go down...
