Trade Alert: Analyzing the social stock sphere

Stocks up nicely again this week and now up pretty huge from those panicky Ebola lows a couple weeks ago. Have you trimmed anything? Should you? Now’s the time — sell when you can, not when you have to. Yelp took a 15% hit last week, after they guided for next quarter to be about 2% [...]

Trade Alert: Full earnings report analysis for Twitter and Invensense PLUS A tiny speculative options trade

Feels like the markets coiling before its next phase of volatility. Do you remember just a few trading days ago that the DJIA dipped back below 16,000? Are you prepared for wherever the near-term market might take us, including a potential near-term weakness towards the 16,000 level again. I’d likely do another round of buying [...]

Trade Alert: Taking some more profits from the buys last week

Into the depths of the declines last week, I stepped up and did several rounds of buying. Recall these posts: It’s time for another fresh round of tranche buying of a little more GOOG and FSLR common stocks and I’m also going to add a couple call options on the SPY here — buying the [...]

Trade Alert: Locking in SPY profits and a new pair trade

Markets are straight up this morning and I want to peel off the last of my SPY call options that we bought during the panic last week. We have about 1/3 remaining after taking profits on some of them last week and I’m going to sell the rest of those now for very nice short-term [...]

Trade Alert: Buying some SPY calls for a trade

Stocks crashing, DJIA -345 at 15972, Nazz officially in correction territory. Many stocks like INTC down 5-10%. Remember when we were trimming our favorites at all-time highs over the last few weeks? Remember how many names like Ciena and Juniper and JDSU and others that I removed from the portfolio as we steadily raised cash [...]

Trade Alert: Nibbling some names as we analyze the cycles

To put it bluntly, most analysts and pundits and economists are puppies chasing their own tails. There are three main types of these puppies. First, there’s the Permabear camp. These are the people who spend all their lives focusing on how inefficient and corrupt our financial as well as our stock markets are in general. [...]

SELLING THE LAST OF GTAT FOR MORE THAN A DOUBLE Well, I’m selling all of my $GTAT and moving on entirely from it for now. The stock is now up 150% in today’s trading. Let’s take the gain — what a homerun overnight, eh? That’s why we do the bankruptcy BK trade every once in [...]

Trade Alert: Update on the GTAT BK trade PLUS Everything You Should Know Heading Into This Busy Week
