re: Calling all Traders
Writing calls against it after assignment, or are you too far ITM for now?

re: Calling all Traders
word.

even after the now realized (edit) 5 digit loss last night (dang you EXPE).. still up ~20% this month.

just gotta be a little tighter on derivatives selection.

my 2 finalist for what to trade were $EXPE and $BBSI.
i selected EXPE because...well, more more money.

it wasnt a stock i wanted...or would keep.

(another) lesson learned to keep the emotions (greed...and fear) out the calculations

Looking to short call spreads on TTWO. Probably the last one for this week.

nope. took the loss.
/otherwise, i'd wait for a min 3 consecutive increase and then again with the inc vol of earnings for writing the calls
//assignment usually means i'm holding ~6 months... which is why i personally like healthy earnings on it

re: Calling all Traders
Gotcha. I went through that with a boatload of AMD that got put to me a few months back. Luckily it found support near my assignment price and I was able to sell weekly calls until it FINALLY got called away last Friday. Made great money on the calls and the position... but I’m generally not looking to go long on these stocks - not on purpose anyway. Ties up too much capital meant for trading.

have my last lotto positions on $dis....no short positions added to it at all.

got 10 mins to decide whether to be smart and take profits from this volatility surge like usual...or truly pay the lotto and see what happens.

re: Calling all Traders
Long DIS calls or short puts? Looks like a winner either way.

I had to chase TTWO to unload the call spreads, but got them in at 3:55. So-so earnings. Stock was paused for a bit and now is getting slapped in AH. Hope it lasts.

Funny old market these past couple of weeks during earnings. With a few exceptions (TSLA), great results get a mediocre reception, meeting expectations gets a sigh and anything less gets punched three times in the face.

NVDA on deck this Thursday after the close. Haven't had time to think much about it or anything else this weekend. It's had a nice run lately though.

re: Calling all Traders
got $wmt $tsn coming up this week.

nothing really exciting.. but these are bread and butter dividend stocks, imo.


prob will do $tsn as a credit spread and $wmt naked.

both look relatively civilized on p&f chart..
..but i'm ok holding both.

Kemet had a long thread on here a while back. Didn’t feel like making a new one just for this news.

Yageo to acquire Kemet $KEM for $27.20 per share in cash, or $1.8B

Yup. I’ve been buying on dips since that thread. Worked my way up to about 280 shares @ $18 basis. Good day.

Not sure your purchase price, but today it's up $3.75 So today you made $375.

The call itself is now worth between 7.60 and 8.50... Or sold for $760 to $850.

I'm NOT advising you to sell or hold.

re: Calling all Traders
CSCO looks well poised for irrational movement...

there are narrow range inside bars on monthly and 2 day charts...
and the daily historical volatility is imo a perfect .5

wrote 12/13 bull put spreads and long a call
