[quote]I agree. I have a 5 year old son and have been teaching him we let women go first. I will also get up for a woman on a bus.

re: Male/female door holding etiquette - bayoubengals88
We’re people. Opening a door doesn’t have to be a masculine trait. That’s antiquated bs. If a female opened a door for all the males on this board, how many of you close minded good ole boys would take offense or feel inadequate?...

re: Rocky Mountain National Park and surrounding area advice - bayoubengals88
There are a couple of beautiful 3-4 mile hikes near Guanella Pass, which is close to Evans. Square top lakes and Silver Dollar/Murray Lakes. They start really high and are fairly easy open tundra hikes with great views. Also, with the age of your group, get their arse in gear! My favorite hike...

re: What's your opinion of GE at this point ? - bayoubengals88
Yeah man it’s fun to really understand the leverage that options can provide. I’m currently sticking to simple calls and puts...minimum 6 months out. I might make a $50 gamble on earnings every now and then. Like if I would have bet on NKE last week or against STZ... Thanks for the encouragi...

[quote]Take a chance here ? [/quote] Why not buy dirt cheap Out of the Money Call LEAPS? $20 calls for Jan 2020 trading for about $55 per contract or .55 per option. If GE even get's back to $15 within the next month you can conservatively estimate that those options will be worth more than 25% ...

re: OPTIONS: In The Money Call strategies? - bayoubengals88
Man, options simply leave stocks in the dust. Less than two weeks ago I bought two different leaps on a blue chip that was having a bad day...so I got them at a discount. Today I’m up 55% on that small $400 investment. The stock is up maybe 4% since that time. WOW! These were out of the mo...

re: Driving from Denver to Portland and have a question - bayoubengals88
There are essentially two options to get the most out of Colorado scenery and be somewhat conscious about time: 1) take I-70 west to Silverthorne and travel north to Steamboat via Hwy 9. This trip will offer stunning views of the Front Range on I-70, will travel parallel to the jagged Gore Range ...
