2019 Stock Market notes ..Just background noise causing today's market move

I turned in my retirement notice, la st day of corporate work ended on June 3 , 2018.
I'm now on my own.. in full retirement and no chance of sitting on my behind in a nursing home. I'm ready to rock and make steady money in the market
Are you in. check me out daily

 Biggest advantage of  a retiree:  Personal freedom.  Ability to watch the stock market from start to end on a daily basis. I expect 99% of retirees do not take advantage of this.

While one needs to balance risk aversion and speculation , there is also a need to maximize gains when there is a high expectancy. One big win can make up for many small losses

Market down due to nothing important today. Market was up 300 points last session so needed to pause. Blame is stated on global slowdown, otherwise nothing.

Given the market drop today, am trying to pick up some stocks on sale. Currently have limited buy orders in at lower buy price on high flyers' WDAY and VEEV. Also trying to get O (the monthly dividend stock) at 64.48 (currently at 65). Trying WDAY at 169.90 (currently at 171.23) and VEEV at 104.50 (currently at 105.45). 
11:35am cst. Dropped buy price on VEER to 104.45

Unloaded GS today.

Stocks/ETFs own..  AMZN, AAPL, SQ, GS, XLF
Normally daytrade etf's such as SCHX, SCHB, SCHA

Stock watch: AMZN ...moving into another revenue winner, AL Alexa on the road in your auto vehicle, with ads

Market is closed today. Let's look at the S&P P500.
First, a definition of a bear market is a drop of 20% from it's high. The SP 500 had a drop of 20% (2930 to 2351) in 2018. 
Four months ago the S&P 500 stood at 2930. Today it is at 2690. At the end of the short duration bear market on Dec 24, it closed at 2351. So it's had a good jump of 8.8% since Dec 24.  That said, there's a long way to go to test it's 2930  high last October

Why the change in direction ,the  reversal of Oct - December’s 2018 downward trend.

The two major reasons are as follows:

1) The Federal Reserve statement by Jay Powell on Jan 4: (No March raise hike, "Powell revived the word “patient,” which was last used by the Fed in December 2014. It’s a powerful signal of no rate hikes until further notice. “patient” is Fed code for “No rate hikes until we give you a clear signal.” 

2) China trade talk . On-going positive rumors/reports.
One being US could  back off tariffs on China in a bid to calm markets and accelerate negotiations.  Another stated Jan 18, "China has offered to go on a "six-year buying spree" to boost imports from America. The goal would be to zero out China's massive trade surplus with the USA by 2024."

 Rule guides;  Always look at opportunities to buy stock in a successful company when it drops after an earnings report ... and panic selling occurs .....

Rule guides: If you sell a loser and it bounces up after selling, don't buy it again. You timed  this one wrong , forget it,  go on to the next one.

1/18/2019 . Stocks/ETF's  own: AAPL, AMZN, GS, SQ .XLF, SCHX, SCHD
Work smart as opposed to hard or for a long time. Consistently take profits regardless of size and increase your account equity

It is imperative that one adheres to the market you know. It would be a disaster for a retiree to participate in the futures market without proper schooling.


   I'm sick of reading opinions that retirees need to be ultra conservative and  allocate a large portion of  retirement savings in cash and bonds. The general public reason for that is related to the majority of retirees not watching his portfolio on a daily basis. However once retired and to enjoy the stock market does require on-going daily market watching and reading of stock market strategies 

AAPL.   Undervalued. Currently approximately 70 points below it's 4th qtr price in 2018. AAPL has a huge buyback program. Companies do buybacks when they think the market price is undervalued. AAPL around 153.

Image result for pc laptop  Beach Chair RetirementAMZN. After touching 2,000 last quarter, AMZN fell down to below 1400. Currently in 1600-1700 range. AMZN business consists of retail, AI, and cloud computing. AI and Cloud computing is in a high growth space. AMZN makes much of it's profit in cloud computing. Expect many new and positive announcements in 2019. Very likely to touch 2000 again in 2019.
 SQ. Bought SQ today. Card game changer.  Square introduced a free debit card for businesses today, helps businesses manage cash flow by eliminating the time between making a sale and having the funds available to spend. SQ  up nearly 5% in market midday action..


See the source imageThe stocks I am investing in, for the majority, are looking to the future with paradigm-changing technologies. TSLA with automated, electric vehicles, AMZN with AI voice recognition (echo) and robotic automation in their advanced warehouses and the Cloud business. NVDA involved heavily in deep learning and AI ventures.

SQ performing

Sept 19
Giants NVDA, Telsa, and Amazon taking over

AUG 8th
TSLA showing strength

I own GOOGL and highly recommend buying it at 965- 970...ON SALE DIRT CHEAP
Bought more shares of GOOGL at 965 this morning , adding to position. Might go down further during today's panic but this time next week let's see where it's at.
30 minutes into today's session (July 25), GOOGL is down over 30 points to 970.
This will be another prediction/recommendation that I'm making that is also going to be correct.
GOOGLE - buy it
(It'll always be google to me and not alphabet...please 1)

WDAY. Interesting chart last three months.. hits a wall when it gets to the 104-105 mark.
AAPL   Quietly has been on a slow roll upwards.
BABA. Very nice chart trend YTD.

TSLA out strong this morning.
FB up on high volume
Repurchased ANET.

Bought MSFT.
Bought more NVDA. Limited order to buy EPAM

unloaded all of TSLA

SQ SHOP CTRL  all added to our Top list of recommended stocks , now the Big 18.

JUNE 26th
It's a wonderful day in the summer of 2017.
Bought more ANET this morning.
JUNE 22th
Reduced holdings  in AAPL... for the time being
Added to NVDA position.
Our largest holdings are in AMZN and TSLA and even though would like to own more of these equities, needed to spread out the risk with other stocks such as VEEV, PAYC, PYPL, ANET

NVDA going big with Cryptocurrency.
AMZN , after acquiring Whole Foods, announces selling clothes program and also NIKE indicates it  now will likely sell on Amazon online.

JUNE 21th
Day to watch. Not planning any transactions today.
Every one of my stocks went up today even though the Dow was down 56 points.

JUNE 20th
Bought more NVDA this morning. Have limited orders in  for VEEV , WDAY and MSFT.

COST (costco) down about 9% due to fear of the AMZN/Whole Foods play. Nothing to worry about. COST will do just fine... now maybe in 5 years things will change but in 5 years anything could change. I do not own or plan to trade in COST. This is just my call. COST is a BUY.

JUNE 19th
 Momentum tech stocks to have huge week after GS massive downgrade a week ago
JUNE 16th

GS downgrade of 'Big Tech' provides gigantic buying opportunity for the smart money ....  which includes GS buying the stocks it downgraded. They've done it before. Believe me, Buffet isn't selling AAPL. The justice department should check should study GS to see if it's buying AMZN after it's downgrade!

JUNE 13th
Bought more TSLA at near opening today !
Also bought ANET this morning

JUNE 9th
No new stock transactions  so far. Enjoying the show.
9:25am cst. About an hour into the session, NVDA cooling off and diping while AAPL is heating up.
CLDR. A stock not followed by me but noted by others, down double digits today.
My stock portfolio now way over 10,000 in net gain for the year. All active stocks showing a  gain.

MSFT  Sold all today to lock in profit and release cash for other transactions which might include
investing in GOOGL or FB or add to PYPL , VEEV, ANET or buy  PAYC.

ANET  up 61%
PAYC   up 50%
PYPL  up 36%
VEEV  up  60%
WDAY up 55%

You know it, I know it. Downgrade of AAPL by an analyst on fear of less iphone8 sales is pure silliness. Makes AAPL a buying opportunity today.

Speaking of AMZN, as it approaches 1,000, where will it be this time next year?
It's not too far fetched to see it at 1500 and 1800 by end of year 2018.
Taking PCLN as an example, and it's not growing as fast as AMZN, PCLN was at 1000 on Feb 2016 and now at 1800 + (June 2017).

My  top 4 stocks are: AAPL, NVDA, AMZN, TSLA
I am naming my second group of top 4 and the first stock,  SURPRISE!  is MSFT (Microsoft) and due mostly to it Cloud web services AZure, which is a money machine and can only grow in the years to come. FB, NFLX, BABA GOOGL all remain in consideration as candidates for the second group of top 4 but could be others as I will name those in the following days.

AMZN. Up again this morning, considering selling 20% of my holdings and take profit.
TSLA.  Considering selling 25% of holdings and taking profit.
AAPL. Might add to holdings if remains in dip.
NVDA. MSFT.  Will continue to hold
QQQ, VEEV, PYPC.. Will continue to hold
NFLX  Will continue to hold.

ANET. Adding ANET to my top 5 'higher risk' stocks. PYPC and ANET are two of the stocks and the other three are still open.
BABA. NFLX.  Alibaba joins the top 4 'second group' along with MSFT and now NFLX. Considering FB and GOOGL for the fourth member.

ANET. Purchased initial shares of ANET today. Expect to buy three other 'higher risk' securities in the next few days.  Have limited orders to sell small portions of AMZN and TSLA for profit taking.

Bought PYPL.  Was deciding among ELLI, PAYC, ANET, PYPL.
AMZN. Back on Sept 28, 2016,  I targeted AMZN at 1000 (see sept 28 below). It won't be long before GOOGL touches 1000.

Bought more TSLA and NVDA this morning. As you can tell, have been adding to NVDA and TSLA positions.

MAY 20 -  One week for almost perfect predictions

(written Friday AM, May 19)
Market off to a good start. I did my stock buying the last two days, will hold off today. We'll see if market can hold up the entire day, not sure it  can.

(written just after the close on 5/18)
Market did exactly what I said it would during the last hour. I'll provide my forecast for tomorrow later tonight. Have a good day!

(written 5/18 about 1 hr before the close)
Be careful, market up all day, expect some daytrade profit taking.

(Written 5/18 )
Market up this morning as predicted.
So far, our commentary written yesterday regarding stock market movement is totally correct.
After buying AAPL yesterday during the hysteria, I purchased more AAPL, TSLA , AMZN shares  today and also more of QQQ. 

(below written Wednesday, May 17)
Wednesday's Market reaction was normal. With all the hysteria about the Trump presidency, investors were scared off from buying and induced to selling.  During these types of selloffs, I would typically sell a portion of my holdings. Typically a few sessions later those equities I sold would be higher than my selling price. This time I decided to hold,  sell nothing and actually be a buyer. I bought more Apple shares today. Nothing changed in my reason for why  I own the core stocks in my portfolio. I see my core holdings appreciating in price, a bright future, with ever increasing earnings, growth and profits. I also consider the reason for  today's selloff to subside. The odds are in my favor in regards to impeachment of the president NOT happening.  
The stock market will go up or down regardless of one's political affiliation. The economy is on an uptrend and the market will gear stock prices on company profits at the end of the day. As Warren Buffet said, 'Buy when everyone else is selling'.
Already, relief on the Russian meddling issue has occurred with the announcement of a special council, ex-FBI  chief Muller to oversee it .Very soon, possibly starting even Thursday,  reversal of today's panic selloff. Today the DOW dropped over 300 points. Sometime this year the DOW will go up 300 plus points in one session. You know it. I know it.

MAY 19
9:00am CST. Of  my 4 core stocks, only NVDA is above it's share price when the Market crashed 300 points on Wednesday. AMZN and TSLA are close but AAPL is still two points away.

10:00am CST.  AMZN back up to share price before Wednesday market selloff.

MAY 17- 18
So far, our commentary written yesterday regarding stock market movement is totally correct.
After buying AAPL yesterday during the hysteria, I purchased more AAPL shares  today and also more of QQQ. 

Sold part of TSLA.... for profit.. freeing up capital for a planned new trade.

Bought NVDA.

Market returns to upward movement.
Bought more AMZN and rebought more TSLA.

MAY 16

TSLA ,as predicted touched 320 intraday today. See May 15 comments when I predicted that TSLA will hit 320 as early as today when it was down to 312!
8:55am cst bought more AAPL
AAPL. While some hedge funds has sold or trimmed their holdings on AAPL...which I think is absurd and flat dumb, Warren Buffet has doubled up on AAPL. Best thing is to be aware of all the good things to come to AAPL within a year and be patient.
1. AAPL .major beneficiary of corporate tax reform, corporate tax rates will be cut to 15% possibly
2. AAPL.  has $239 billion cash stacked abroad.  a flat reduced rate will be applied to earnings repatriated from abroad.    when AAPL brings the cash back home, it could result in a substantial dividend payout and share buyback for investors
3. AAPL   New iphone8  is expected to supercharge a sales cycle. First phone to be priced over $1,000 with a built in loyal buying audience.
4. AAPL making headway in sales of its wearable devices , making moves to expand its operations to emerging markets
5. AAPL reported record earnings this past quarter, thanks to better-than-expected sales.
6. AAPL stock still cheap, P/E lower than average of S&P 500.
MAY 15- Monday
8:30am CST. Opening remark. TSLA downgraded by MS.   Down to 312. Great opportunity to buy as I expect the stock to be over 320 by end of session tomorrow!
Updating the portfolio has been time-consuming. As of today, I will no longer show the numerous 1 or 2 two trades I make with ETF's such as no-commission Schwab ETF's ..ie SCHA and SCHB. I also will not show the dividends on stock that I've earned. In removing these items, my portfolio gains which showed 17,500 now only show 16,700. I will continue to report Stock trades.
10:20am Bought more TSLA this morning. Doing exactly what I said it would.

11:45AM cst.  AMZN , one of my core three stocks, showing no mercy  today, AMZN continues to throttle  upwards  strangling the bears

2017 - Here's what I say will happen

1. US Economy improves:  Overall Trump administration  lower taxes leads to   higher corporate profits. Repartiation of overseas taxes to occur. More Jobs stay and come back to USA.
2.  US Dollar grows stronger as economy improves: making imported items cheaper.. makes it more attractive to hold dollar-denominated assets, attracting money into the U.S.
3.  FED  reserve raises rates : makes Finance/Bank stock sector stronger
4. OIL prices likely to  drop after initial bump increase. Stronger dollar makes buying oil more expensive and oil cartel has history of cheating on limits. Bottom line, comes down to supply and demand. Supply will continue to outstrip demand
5 Gold prices likely to continue long term trend to fall as dollar strengthens
MAY 12
My big five : AAPL, AMZN, TSLA, NFLX, NVDA
However, most of you know that. What you don't know is my secondary five. They are as follows: GOOGL, BABA, FB MSFT, WDAY.  On the wait list, such stocks as JPM,  HPQ, ORCL CMG, BIDU, CRM.
9:00am CST. Highly considering adding to positions
9:10am CST AAPL. Bought more shares of aapl.
9:35am CST NVDA Sold remaining stock.

MAY 11
10:00am CST.  Opened a position on NVDA... better late than never. Still much upside. AI hardware for autos is NVDA's  very promising product.

10:00am CST. With market down, expect rebound shortly, trying to decide on what to buy on this dip among AMZN, AAPL, NFLX, and TSLA....    AAPL holding it;s own on EX-DIV date.

11:20am CST.  AAPL. Added to position. AAPL, very strong,  showing good strength on  EX-DIV date.

11:20 NVDA Added to position after opening position earlier.

1pm CST. Sold 15 shares of NVDA for profit, still hold 20 shares

MAY 10
Our two predictions on TSLA has already turned true. One prediction is the dip on TSLA after reporting earnings will become a huge buying opportunity as the stock will recover  .... and it did .

The second prediction was that the stock price will climb up higher this week than the close last Friday.

 My third prediction, made when TSLA was at 291 was that it will hit 350. It is on the way as it has climbed from 290 to 325 in five trading days !


NOTE: What is noted below was written during the week of May1 and was  correct.

Fat Cats show you how to play the report earnings game
TSLA (telsa). TSLA reported earning the evening (wed) and the earnings report and guidance are good, yet as it normally happens, mice are selling on the earnings  reporting news and the stock is down about 15 points to 300 in after market trading and then lower to 291. Do I need to tell you if the fat cats bought at this level?  Check it out by end of day on Thursday. If TSLA is at 300 or lower when the market opens thursday, I will be even buying more TSLA stock. I see TSLA in a very short period of time at a modest 350 in share price!

The mice, the same dummies that sold off AAPL the other night in error also as the same dummies that sold off TSLA tonight and early on thursday. ...Mice just don't learn.

AMZN: Cat and Mouse game. AMZN reports earning after the bell last thursday, stock explodes up 30 point in after-market trading. Cats then sell off on profit sharing to the mice on Friday as AMZN drops 30 points. 'Fat cats then buy back in on Monday as AMZN gains 30 points. Mice buy in as fat cats sell off on Tuesday and Wednesday. Fat cats now  ready to buy in again on our  amazing Amazon.

AAPL : Apple reports earnings after the bell on Tuesday. Mice unload in after market trading as AAPL drops down from nearly 148 to 144. Half way through after-market trading, our fat cats buy in at 144 and watch AAPL climb back up to nearly 147.5 on Wednesday.  Fat cats watch mice buy in as they take profits and watch AAPL drop in wednesday after-trading to below 146. Fat cats then came back in to buy at this level. Watch thursday's action.
Oh by the way, mice, AAPL pays it quarterly dividend May 11.... another thing the fat cars know!

TSLA (telsa). TSLA reported earning this evening (wed) and the earnings report and guidance are good, yet as it normally happens, mice are selling on the reporting news and the stock is down about 15 points to 300 in after market trading and then lower to 291. Do I need to tell you if the fat cats bought at this level?  Check it out be end of day on Thursday. If TSLA is at 300 or lower when the market opens thursday, I will be even more TSLA stock. I see TSLA in a very short period of time at a modest 350 in share price!

The mice, the same dummies that sold off AAPL the other night in error also as the same dummies that sold off TSLA tonight and early on thursday. ...Mice just don't learn.

May 5 update: TSLA stock which was down to 291 in  trading May 4 is now at the start of trading on May 5 (friday) above    TSL300 !

Right on on AAPL and AMZN. TSLA down a tid on Monday but still predicting TSLA will be higher by the end of the week than what it closed on last Friday.

9:45am cst. TSLA, as predicted, moving higher.
Bought more AMZN, TSLA and AAPL shares today

TSLA must be high on steroids today... pushing to touch 320 !
AMZN hit our target of 955 as predicted, now pushing hard to get to 959 !

11:15am cst, TSLA, AMZN, AAPL... at some point I'll sell these but as this stocks continuing to climb, I'll go along for the ride. (elon MUSK,  jeff  BEZOS, COOK) hard to beat.

BA  Sold 20 shares
NFLX  Bought 20 shares

See stock portfolio and daily commentary

This stock strategy is based on  anticipating events that will propel or freefall stock share prices.
Buying a stock on  Anticipation strategy  pertains to expecting an future event that will cause big stock movement. Intelligent analysis regarding the anticipation determines the probability of the event occuring and hence the risk involved in trading the stock. An example is the Anticipation that the Trump administration will lessen the restrictions on Banking  per the Dodd Frank Act. Trump all along indicated a willingness to remove or lessen the banking restrictions in the Dodd Frank act. Buying banking and finance stocks such as BAC, JPM in 'anticipation' of this occuring is a result of Intelligent Anticipation. We will continue to use this concept in future trading. Stay tuned for easy winners!

This strategy is buying a stock prior to the stock going ex-dividend and selling the stock just prior to ex-dividend date. The build up or ramp up stock gain to the ex-dividend date is captured. Instead of getting the dividend, the stock gain is captured. Additionaly, one can Sell a Call upon purchase of the stock and capture that gain. Typically, on ex-div date, the stock will drop reflecting the dividend lost.

Everyone investing should own at least one 'Cloud' stock. Cloud services is a money machine.  MSFT reported again and beat expectations on earnings and revenue. MSFT took off last qtr reporting with it's cloud business while it's browser and office products stagnated. The top five 'Cloud' stocks, in my opinion, are GOOGL, IBM, AMZN, MSFT, and ORACLE. Others high up on the list are CSCO, HP, ATT (T).  I currently own three, IBM,  AMZN and MSFT. IBM has been in uptrend  the last six months.. AMZN on uptrend. Hey, I bought MSFT  day before reporting earnings, knowing it would relate to 'Cloud' services profit. Considering buying the 5 Cloud stocks listed above always a day or two before reporting earnings. Take your pick. Easy money.
 With expected 3-5 Fed Reserve  rate increases in the next two years, profits will rise in the banking industry and with it, so will banking stock share price. It is difficult for me to find any reason not to own these three stocks. Upcoming expectations on lower taxes, fiscal stimulus and lighter regulation would all help banks.I believe we are just in the beginning of a bull market for finance/banking stocks.
Why dwell on market stocks that are old and tired. Instead one can jump and take a quantum leap abroad tigers awakening from their deep slumber of 2008 fame - FINANCE (BAC, GS, JPM)
The Game is about being in the right place at the right time.
Beware the Witch of Wall Street that wants you to be in sucker stocks

So far, 100% correct  as predicted.
As I said I will do, bought more AMZN shares this morning.
10:00am cst. Sold NFLX for net profit.
10;15am cst. Bought BA 

If you look at my portfolio, you will think and see, on a consistent basis, I show owing stocks such as Apple.Telsa, Netflix, Amazon, and JP Morgan. However, that is not what I have. I have 'stock' and faith in  Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook,  Reed Hastings, and Jamie Damon If those individuals would leave their respective companies, I would also. Think about it, having faith in MUSK, BEZOS, COOK, HASTINGS, and DAMON and to hold 'stock' in them should lend you to also being successful in their endevors. Collectivity having 'stock' in those individuals five years from now should continue to show the success they have shown in the past. You can't lose!

  AAPL will begin trading ex-dividend on 05/11/17 with a $0.63 dividend payable to shareholders of record as of 05/15/17. Last week I pocketed a net profit of $103 on an AAPL  call option. This week I will get the dividend. Next week I will sell another call option. >>> just adding adding to profit!

Bezos sells one billion worth of AMZN and the stock only drops 1.5% on selling pressure. AMZN is our stock to watch this coming week. I see the fat cats buying in if they haven't already.
By the by, Bezos sells AMZN stock every year and puts it into his Blue Origin space company.

Tesla stock bears are living a huge nightmare. Every morning they wake up to see TSLA  stock crossing a new price milestone.  Expect TSLA to  announce more positive moves and end higher at the end of this week.

AMZN, despite a huge sell of stock by ceo Bezos to finance his space exploration, AMZN held it's own during this huge selling pressure. I would like to own even more AMZN and  see a change to a positive trend upwards this week.

AAPL, a no brainer, the stock will pay a dividend to shareholders as of May 11. Do you really think AAPL stock will drop this week?  Seriously.

9:00AM cst.  TSLA stock which was down to 291 in  trading May 4 is now at the start of trading on May 5 (friday) above   300 !
10:00AM cst.  TSLA stock now up to 302. Hopefully the 'mice' will not get back in.
10:30AM cst. As we predicted, TSLA continues to climb, now at 304. Those who sold on earnings reporting ... on way down to 291 must now be very sad.
In the meantime, I've up my target from 350 to 365.

10:35am cst. AAPL.  On monday I sold an AAPL call to open MAY5 149.00. At the moment AAPL has climbed back to 148. With the dividend coming up next week, to be safe, I closed the option at .06. Net gain on the option,  a nice $103.78. 

11:15am cst. As stated in our beginning brief on top of this posting, bought  more shares of TSLA at 296.09
The mice have sold and now the fat cats are coming back in.

APR 25
One day prior to Trump's tax change annoucements, the market is in high gear. I made a number of transactions today... got back into finance by buying BAC and JPM, Bought NFLX, unloaded NUGT.
Bought CAT. Added to AAPL position.

Added to AAPL position/

Bought BAC and JPM

APR 17th

APR 10th
Was up in the Cocoa Beach/Melbourne Florida area all last week. Enjoyed the beach as some hot weather days prevailed. Back to market action prior to Easter.

Sold all BAC... Finance / banking stocks currently not in vogue
Bought more TSLA and AMZN.. These hot stocks are not done!

MAR 17
Happy St. Patrick's day !
Bought more Phillip Morris (PM)
Sold GS Goldman Sachs for profit.
Limited orders in to buy Visa (V) and SCHV.

MAR 16
getting ready to purchase a number of SCHa SCHB SCHC SCHV SCHG schwab etf's....

MAR 13
Monday's...sometines one just sits back and lets the weekend hype and fear subside to a more pragmatic Tuesday.

MAR 10
end of session  today. Sold MO, ADP, and TRV. Combining all three, came up with net profit. Selling on the Friday frees up over $9,000 in cash for next week... My sell calls do not get exercise allowing me to write more next week against my holdings of BAC.

TRV. When to sell a loser? Have captured the dividend on TRV but showing a loss on the stock. Debating whether to sell... if sold will take a small loss.  Question is ..Can I do better selling the stock and using the cash to purchase another equity which will be of better use of the funds? If sold, would result in an overall net loss of around $30.00 but will free up $3,000 in cash.

ADP  This morning currently at 104.22 and raising. Likely to sell if it can reach 104.50 or better.

VZ, T.  Time to look at buying these  two telephone stocks, maybe next week

BAC.  The 25.50 and 26.00 options I have on these will, at current BAC share price, expired and my BAC stock will not be called in. This will allow me on Monday to open options to Sell Calls and rack in more money.
BAC  Collusion issue causing banking stocks down today. Sold 200 shares at 25.10,  betting that can buy back at lower price. Commission to buy back will only cost me $4.95.

JPM. I don't think the highly expected fed rate increase is baked into finance and banking stocks. Bought 28 more share of J P Morgan this morning to bring total share count to 100. This will allow me to write a sell covered call at some point.
JPM Am not opposed to writing a sell call 93.50 if JPM gets to 92.

BAC Limited order in to buy/sell combo stock and call option.
BAC Bought 100 shares at 25.50 and sold call mar24 26.50 at 16, netted 15.35 on the option as in a combo my commission on the option  was only  .65 cents. If I get called, I will gain $100 on the stock less commissions.

PM Bought more PM. Goes ex-div
PM  Declared $1.04 per shr dividend today, effective ex-div date is mar 13th.

V and BA. Still very interested in buying these two stocks for price appreciation

NO action today
HD  Yet another Dividend Capture strategy winner! Captured dividend yesterday and sold stock for profit today.

KO  As indicated in our 'eyeballs focus on' , bought KO today, another Dividend Capture candidate as it goes ex-div Mar 13. In this case, might play any 'ramp up' to ex-div date and sell right before.

BAC.. Bought 100 shares and sell call mar10 25.50 to pick up $14.00.

AAPL  Limited order in to buy more AAPL.
AAPL  Bought more Apple.

AAPL. Considering purchasing even more

Broker's commission wars. My broker is at 4.95 per trade.

FEB 23
DAL  Another dividend capture winner. Sold for profit and captured  the dividend.
TSLA Sold all
JNJ  Goes ex-div tomorrow but currently have approx $170 profit in JNJ. Likely I will sell today prior to ex-div and lock in profit. JNJ most likely will drop tomorrow and more than the div pays.
This is another angle in the Dividend Capture strategy which is to play the 'ramp up' to the dividend and sell just prior to it  going ex-div.
JNJ  Sold all, captured profit on stock. 
MCD  Limited order in to buy more McDonald's.
MCD  Order filled.

TSLA.. tesla on a roll, going world-wide auto selling. Added to position
AMZN  Bought 2 more shares.

This stock strategy is based on  anticipating events that will propel or freefall stock share prices.
Buying a stock on  Anticipation strategy  pertains to expecting an future event that will cause big stock movement. Intelligent analysis regarding the anticipation determines the probability of the event occuring and hence the risk involved in trading the stock. An example is the Anticipation that the Trump administration will lessen the restrictions per the Dodd Frank Act. Trump all along indicated a willingness to remove or lessen the banking restrictions in the Dodd Frank act. Buying banking and finance stocks such as BAC, JPM in 'anticipation' of this occuring is a result of Intelligent Anticipation. We will continue to use this concept in future trading. Stay tuned for easy winners!

JAN 31
Last day of a very interesting month. Market enduring a fear stage which makes it a wonderful opportunity to pick up some stocks at a lower price. Eyeballs focused on BAC, JNJ at the moment. With the Fed Reserve bank very likely to raise interest rates 3-5 times in the next two years, I see BAC at least hitting 30 but the main factor will be to sell weekly coverred calls and pick up profit that way.

JAN 30
JAN 28
Bought IBM stock.
Sold GS but will re-purchase if at lower level.
Sold SCHB.

Capture Dividend stock update:
CSCO  Our dividend pays tomorrow ($26.00) and if I sold the stock, would break even on stock sale.

9:40am Limited order in to buy CAT.
10:00am Dow approaching the 20k mark, about 50 points away
2:51pm Bought 20 more  shrs JPM

JAN 10
Speculative buy on NVDA.

9:2X am cst  Bought 200 shr BAC at 22.66 and sold 2 call options to open, BAC 23.00 JAN13, rcvd $44.48 net on the options. If called on Jan 13 and  require to sell BAC will end up netting over $100.00.

10:00 Bought 20 shrs of SCHB. My broker provides this trade  at no commission.

10:07  Likely to sell CSCO. Captured $26.00 on the dividend and would like to sell CSCO stock at even or small profit. This will free up more cash to go after another Dividend  Capture stock,

10:17 Bought 20 more shares SCHB today.

11:08  Dividend capture play. Bought 100 shr PFE at 33.42  and Sold a Call option to open, PFE JAN27 34.00 at $22.00. Dividend pays 32.00 and goes ex-div on 2/1. If option is called by Jan 27 will receive  $22.00 plus $58.00 for 80.00 total less commission, otherwise will get $22.00 on option expiration plus $32.00 dividend for 56.00.

JAN 9 - Monday
Holding tight today. Expect dow 20,000 sometime  this week to occur.

'Wild bunch tech ' stocks like AMZN, GOOGL, TESLA, NFLX, APPL ready to swing upward.
Goldman Sachs a top leader.
Very difficult to see BAC bank stock dropping overall as FED expected to raise rates 3-5 times in next two years.

Sold SCHA.
Sold some of GS,BAC,JPM
Bought 60 more shares VZ giving me 200 shares.. goes ex-div tomorrow. Might try to sell calls on it.
2.50pm Sold all VZ  for profit, bypassing tomorrow's ex-div.
2:29pm Just sold all T for profit, bypassing tomorrow's ex-div.
2:00pm Limited order in to buy NFLX

After review, it appears I am very likely to sell some or all of VZ and T today. Although ex-div date is tomorrow to lock in the dividend, it appears that the stock, from a historical aspect, will drop more than the dividend amount to be received tomorrow. I currently have a nice profit in both VZ and T and can lock the profit in by selling the stock. I currently have 450 combined shares. It will also free up funds for other trades this month.

Option trade: Sell to Open  JPM 88.50 JAN13 call  .61.
Option gives me half point protection on stock and if called will get 88.50 +51.29.
 Limited order Option  submitted : Sell to Open DAL 51.50 JAN13,

12:30pm  We are pleased with  VZ as it continues nice uptrend movement.
2:55pm cst. Bought 40 more shares VZ.

igh in the $55 share range.

 Although profit sharing, such as on Monday, Dec 12+13,  and expected scare pump pundit writings will occur, overall BAC should sometime in 2017 test it's 10 year highs.

An anology of sorts that I have related in the past pertains to the Dow of 2008 going into 2009. In March of 2009, the DOW broke out of it's bear run pertaining to the financial crisis of 2008 and went up 1,000 points. After gaining 1,000 points I wrote about getting back into the market. The peanut gallery at that time laughed at me and said I was a sucker for going in 'too late'. However, as we all now, the market and the Dow continues a great movement upward the rest of the year. The one month gain of BAC is only the beginning. I fully expect ongoing consistent gains in the finance/banking sector as we go forward into 2017. This is one of the rare moments to get into a sector at it's bull beginnings. 

Rough week turns on great Thursday session.

DEC 14
9:00am It's highly likely that the Fed will announce an increase in interest rates today, propelling Banking stocks upward longer term.

DEC 12
EYEBALLS on the week ahead
Airline stock to get hit hard the early part of the week due to oil prices but becomes great buying opportunity later in week.
FINANCE/BANKING will continue to march forward even with the peanut gallery worried about being overbought.

9am cst Sold all of SCHB
9:30am  Bought 150 shares NUGT , possible day trade.

Look...Portfolio climbs to intraday $9600.00 profit.

As you might have noticied, we here at Joker Central like guaranteed income and have been playing the dividend Game. Have purchased a number of stocks paying dividendsin near future. At the moment have purchased dividend stocks that have or will pay over $200.00 in the month of Dec alone.

As positions go up, the JOKER solution is to buy more. Bought 4 more shares GS and 15 more shares JPM.
If JPM continues upward today, likely to sell call to open (dec16)

Bought 30 shares SCHB. daytrade likely

Most people who work have a retirement plan in a 401k, 403k
The only way to make a profit in these plans is in a bull market as all your money are long stocks or bonds. Self traded investments do not need to be in a bull market to make money as you control everything.

Sold Dust. Sold SCHB. 9:20am rebought 50 shrs DUST. Sold Dust again.

After going to estate sales for a few years now, I'm come to the conclusion that most in my area do a three day sale with no negotiation. The first day most items are sold at 'ebay' retail or higher. The second day the remaining items are discounted 25%, the third day the discount is 50%. Items that don't sell are typically taken to a local  weekly consignment auction and sometimes many of the items go for next to nothing.
After going to many estates sales and talking to many of the patrons, my conclusion is that most of the buyers in the first hours  are resellers...either those who sell online or resell from antique mall booths or  thrift shops. Some of the higher price items resell at antique shops. Some of the early buyers are those who ship and  sell to resellers in large market areas like New York. Prices in smaller market typically go for less than those in large markets. Large markets have more buyers and hence higher competition which lead to higher prices. Although I think most of the early buyers are savvy, they also fall to the frenzy at the opening and overpay for items that can be purchased online at same or lower prices. Many of the early buys are items such as jewelry, furniture, and art.
There are  items, due to the sheer volume, where the estate doesn't price some  items at retail. These are such items as clothes, books, and vinyl records. There are those who consistently go to those sections and use their smart phones to look up prices and look for steals.
In the future I will give my take on other items selling at estate sale. such as:. non brand glassware, brand name glassware and crystal, figurines, watches, pots and pans,  mugs, past their prime collectibles, vintage signs, photos, military,  tools, upcoming in-demand collectibles, collectible memorabilia (ephermera) such as posters, magazines,vintage documents, toys, etc. ...more to come.
.......   Guns, coins.? ..sorry, don't see these at estate sales normally.

A look at 15 stocks

NFLX  ....... Very volatile but overall  trend is upwards after poor report
TWTR ........  .... I see somebody buying twitter... high risk high reward
 BABA ..... good time to buy as is in holding pattern..overall trend.. Up
FB .... news of Marketplace hurts Ebay but still see FB as neutral

GOOGL... weak of late but did hit all time high in September. Still has a long ways to go up more.
V ....  Slow but good mover... might accelerate soon. keep eyeballs on it
AZO.. Looked at autozone for awhile but don't see any reason to buy
PCLN..  very likely to buy... just doesn't quit
BIDU ... Always liked the stock but just too erratic, requires near perfect timing...
UA.. Underarmour.. another stock I've liked in the past but hasn't done anything since last May

A new feature is a list I will be creating of stocks I follow where  news comments could have a lasting bearing on the stock price. Today the following is listed

AAPL showing strength..
Sold some of AMZN,  taking profit at all-time high price.

Alphabet (GOOGL). At 19 times earning, growing better than that..considered cheap, talk about buying twitter and turning it into a money maker

Alibaba (BABA). Currently at 107...valued at 135. Growing Sales at a 40% clip!

Amazon (AMZN). Fab web cloud services.. Target shares  at 1,000. Awaiting huge volume this Christmas season

Apple (AAPL). Unbelievable cheap, owns smart phone market, will get tax relief on overseas cash horde.
10:15am cst.. I have a limited order to steal and buy BABA at 106.50. Hope it drops a point to that today.

My eyeballs are now focus on GOOGL. GOOGL among other things started a 2-day delivery service to compete with Amazon's prime. GOOGL is now expanding that service to other cities for 95.00 a year and considering overnight deliveries from such concerns as Costco. One thing needed by GOOGL to really compete is 'something else' in the $95.00 annual fee. That could be a media serivice like NFLX. 

Remain lean and mean. We know what we're doing !

Sold all of FB.
We know what we're doing. Portfolio now lean but mean. In this stage of negativity and
volatility it was decided to keep only a few stocks active. Looking now for great buying opportunities.


Been sitting on sidelines.We know what we're doing.

AUG 31

Ah, the end of August as the most excitingand  beginning part of the season for bulls commence.

AUG 30
Sold all of SBUX and MSFT   for net profit.
Eyeballs focus on AAPL ... if it hits 99 or lower, I'm a buyer


AUG 24
SBUX up today. Bought yesterday, we know what we're doing ! 

AUG 23
Bought 55 shrs SBUX
Sold all of GOOGL.. took profits
Bought 5 shrs AMZN....

AUG 22
AMZN , attractive at a lower price,  is on our radar. My eyeballs considering 740 a can't miss.

AUG 19
UA up big today!

AUG 18
nflx looking good in tough market.....my eyeballs continue to  look at UA
bought UA 100 shr 
EYEBALLS NOW SHIFT and look at goldman sachs GS....

AUG 17
Took profit in two positions today: Sold all of AMZN and 50 shrs of AAPL
Will rebuy them at lower price.


Soros sells FB AMZN, NFLX...seriously doing that  before these stocks turn it up in the 4th quarter. Soros, as dumb as it comes, turns senile...selling these stocks when it's actually the time to buy!
..... the the weak and meek sell these stocks on aug 15 causing a down day for them. Watch these stocks perk up.

In the meantime, Warren Buffet doubles up on AAPL. He knows what he's doing!

AMZN will own the Christmas gift buying season and hit the big 1,000 mark !

AAPL will bring out the iphone7 and next year get a massive tax break on the cash horde held in Ireland.

I am keeping my eyeballs open on AMZN and QQQ.

Submitted limited buy orders to purchase UA at 42.00 and QQQ at  117.25 
Bought 50 shr QQQ at 117.25
Bought 20 more shrs NFLX at 95.58
Buy recommendation:  MSFT. I already own 100 shrs but today it is ex-div which allows one to pick up stock at discount.

NFLX hanging around 95. I think between now and the christmas holidays it'll easily get to 105 which means a 1,000 gain for one, like me,  holding 100 shrs.

Aug  15
AAPL:  Ongoing dialogue and rumors surrounding the iphone 7 will drive AAPL stock between now and Sept 16.

MSFT: Goes ex-dividend aug 16

JCP. M(Macy's),  KSS, and JWN all worthy of put option action or shorting. Hedge it by going long AMZN.


Aug 5
Market finally up today.

Poor JoeJustJoe, sold calls on QQQ and bought QQQ puts. At least he has until aug 12 to recover.

Bought 100 shr UA.. Under Armour taking over Golf business from Nike. Has 3d printed shoes, looking good in Rio. Growing with more jobs in Baltimore.

Aug 4 after hours.

Went to estate sale  and got some inkwells. Had some fountain pens but will go there in the morning to see if still available at 25% off second day. One of the secrets of buying at auctions and estate and garage sales is buying fountain pens. Some of those go for hundreds of dollars on ebay!

Aug 4
Joker JoejustJoe (see comments)  , two in a row winning streak with QQQ. Let' s see if he can make it 3 in a row.

Porfolio continues to climb upwards even in a dismal Dow market

Is TRUMP dead in the water?

FB looking good today.

..Why I bought MSFT....   MSFT is a different company now with it's cloud revenues. It hit 10 billion and is expected to easily hit 20 billion by 2018. Even other cloud companies, ie GOOGL, IBM, AMZN, salesforce... haven't hit 10 billion yet.

Looks like another down day for the market. AAPL ready to bounce back.
Eyeballs looking at MSFT...

Aug 2
Good morning.
The Joe Joker got lucky with his put qqq  trade, however, smarted it up by now buying qqq calls.
Good move.

Aug 1 after-hours
Poor JoeJustJoe, an old adversary, recklessly buying puts on the mighty Nasdaq as  the
Nasdaq stocks start a new dawn of pricing climbing upwards! ok, maybe good for a one day strategy but long term it's murder.
Icahn in tears as the buffoon, Warren Buffet, laughing his a** off with his boatload of AAPL stock..

AAPL today at 96.64...between now and Christmas holiday, AAPL easily will go over 100...  Dividend will pay for commission.
Market up today regardless of terrible violence and Clinton reopening of investigation by State Dept.


  1. You "deleted" my comments cuz you can't handle the truth? :O No biggie, I kept track o'me results. Still own 100 OREX from 3.80 and have $1385.00 in cashola. I spend 513.00 heeeya by getting back into DUST fer an even bigger run. 100 shares of DUST at 513.00 leaves 862.00 in cashola after commish. SAWEEET! :-)

  2. Don't want to jam up on UVXY becuz o'da revoise splitola. But I pickt up 3 QQQ $115 puts at .82. That removes 256.00 from me cashola stashola, leaving 606.00 left to use to make DumMunyMo go silent. :-)

  3. All out o'me Q's trade heeeya as the pig hits 114.75. In at .82, out at 1.38 for a "stellar" 2 day gain ov 68%...adding 138x3=414.00-10commish=404.00 back to cashola for me next GRRREAT trade. cashola balance now at 1010.00.

  4. I'll save ya, DumMunyMo! Bot 5 QQQ 115 calls that expeer on Fri at .34ea. Cost of trade is 180 including commish, leaving 830.00. You can get back to the cloud of farts that surround you now, DumMunyMo! :-)

  5. Thangs cud go either way heeeya so I would preserve me gain in the Q's trade (now almost up 100% at .62 last trade) by selling a move to .50. They may rally tho, taking DumMunyMo to "bustin at da seems" giddiness. So I'll also keep a mental sell limit at .90. Gonna do one or da udder. :-)

  6. Sold the Q's 115 calls fer tamarrah expeery at the close. Paid .34, out at .81 for yet anudder "stellar" gain of 138% in 2 daze of trading. 5X81.00=405.00-10 commish = 395.00 goes into cashola, Total at 1225.00. I then bot 4 QQQ 115 putskis fer 8/12 expeeery at .45 centavos ea. Cost of trade wuz 180.00 = $10 commish, leaving 1035.00 in cashola.

  7. Adding to me gold shorts via 4 GDX 30.50 putskis fer 8/12 expeeery at .37 centavos ea. Cost ov trade is 158.00 including commish, leaving 877.00 in cashola.

  8. Exiting me OREX trade heeeya at 3.80 with no gain and adding 379.00 bac to cashola, which now stands at 1247.00.

  9. "Likely" to lose on me GDX trade too thur, DumMunyMo. But what does the "smart" money do? Why, it add to the loss! :-) I'll open a limit buy in the gold seckter wit 100 Mo shares of DUST at the PM low of 4.46 with a limit buy thur. Shud get hit today. Cost of trade will be 456.00, leaving 791.00 in cashola.

  10. Yu'll LUV thisn, DumMunyMo. I'll buy 3 UVXY $20 dollah putskis fer next Fri expeeery heeeya at .64 centavos. Cost of trade is 202.00, bringing cashola down to 589.00. :-)

  11. I doubt da compooters square thangs away until Wed so I would definutly banks "100%ers" ifn they came quickly. I'll simply set limit sells heeeya at .90 fer DUST $5 putskis n 1.45 on UVXY $20 dollah putskis. DUST limit buy at 4.46 will remain open.

  12. Cashola amount for the DUST trade was subtrackted even tho the trade was not executed. I'll keep it that way and not add cashola bac to the numba. Cash at 589.00 currently.

  13. Easy win on the UVXY trade. The UXY puts opened and held a $1+ profit for the entire first hour of trading and even I left quite a tad on the table personally. Nonetheless, 3 UVXY contracks sold at 140X3=420-10commish=410.00 back in cashola. I keep the DUST trade open to buy, still holding DUST short to $5 by Fri. Cash now at Nein! Nein! Nein! >>> 999.00 :-)

  14. "Likely" to have anudder UVXY short trade opp bafo the dey is thru but fer now I will pick up 3 PBR 9/16 expeeery $9 dollah putskis at .47 merkit as it trades at 9.28. Cost of trade is 151.00 including commish...leaving 848.00 in cashola.

  15. OMG! DumMunyMo! You have "finally" learnt that whenst you "isolate" on a stock enuff to spew about it, that it is "optimum" time to sell! I "knew" I cud learn ya. It's tuff going against yer own thots tho...no? Just be like me...don't even think! :-) I used the rally in the gold shorts to bank a cash bonanza in GDX short to $30 by Fri 8/19. I woulda closed out the DUST trade but I didn set a limit. It could actually rally again here so this time I will set a limit at 5.53 to sell 100 shares I hold here in the JoeVsShhhMo competition. I will keep the DUST buy odor open.

  16. No need to even wait fer reggy hours to begin. I'll take me DUST trade off da table in PM at 5.65 adding 555 back to cashola and bringing the total to 1403.00. DUST limit buy at 4.46 remains open.

  17. Thanks, DumMunyMo. Third consecutive gain in DUST shares only equaling yer call to sell AMZN on crAAPL on yer WOOHOO's. Glad ta see I'm lernin ya. Nooow, fo me next GRRREAT trade. Pickt up 3 UVXY $20 putskis fer .64 centavos each as it trades at 20.55. These bees fer this Fri expeeery. Cost of trade is 202.00, leaving 1201.00 in cashola.

  18. SAWEET! The "great" trades are now coming fast n furryous. Pickt up 8 GDX $30 calls for Fri expeeery at .26 merrkit. Cost of trade is 218.00, leaving 995.00 in cashola. Watch me ride GDX down to me DUST buy DumMunyMo. Doan fergit to come back n axe me how I dunn did it! :-)

  19. Shud be easy "100%ers" on both me new trades but since UVXY is closer to a bottom I will set a sell limit on me $20 putskis at 1.40. I'll leave the GDX trade open as it could end up being a mythical "1000%er" ifn me 32.01 GDX tergit is hit by Fri...leaving DumMunyMo to gaze in "wild wonderment" about why I am so great. :-)

  20. Added SPY 219 calls to my repertoire at .52 merkit. 3 at .52 + commish costs takes 166.00 out of cashola, leaving 833.00.

  21. Not sho I can get UVXY to a new 52 week low today. Ifn I can me UVXY putskis will duble but I will just set sell limits heeeya fer UVXY putskis n SPY calls at 50% higher than prices paid levels.

  22. Wuz able to salvage the UVXY trade so I will add 281.00 back to cashola and wait fo the next trade opp once volamatility calms a tad. Cashola balance now at 1114.

  23. I will add to me PBR chort holdings. This time via the Rocktober 21st expeeery $9 dollah putskis at .52 merkit. I'll pick up 3. Cost ov trade is 166.00, leaving 948.00 in cashola.

  24. Time to add to the PBR short yet again via the Rocktober 21st expeeery $9 dollah putskis. I'll pick up 5 heeeya at .35 merkit. Cost of trade is 185.00 including commish, leaving 763.00 in cashola.

  25. Goldies about to get whacked big time and in a hurry. Da bestest play is CDE short to 12.30 once the 15.35 high goes bye bye. Whenst that happun the CDE $14 dollah putskis fo 9/16 expeeery will trade back to the .20 centavos low o'da dey....slightly lower actually. I'll pick up 8 thur. Cost of trade will be 170.00 and I will deduct from cashola latta oooon.

  26. "Obviously" CXL da CDE short. The ext trade "might be" yet anudder rexscue ov DumMunyMo wit a buy call on da Q's! :-)

  27. I cut my loss on PBR $9 puts that expeeer this Fri by selling at .20. I had 3 contracks so it only puts $50 bac into cash after deducting commish costs. Cash now at 813.00. Still holding all PBR Oct 21st expeeery $9 contracks.

  28. PBR going lower than even I "expected" so I will only bank half my remaining trade. Sold the 5 PRB $9's bot at .35 fer .75, putting 365.00 back into cashola after commish. Cashola now at 1178.00.

  29. Yer kidding me, DumMunyMo, yer gonna be an AZOle...again? Why not somma the sheeyit you totally destroyed, like CRM, SWKS, or even internut security?!! No problem, I won't mention the airlines. :-) I'm taking my remaining 3 PBR Rocktober $9 dollah putskis off the table heeeya at .57 merkit and adding 161.00 back into cashola after commish costs. Bringing cash to 1339.00 with no open trades remaining. AZOle huh. Stick wit FB n Azzamon ifn you want to maximize losses at this point. :-)

  30. Big dey in store fer you today, DumMunyMo. No bout a doubt it, ya "need" Mighty Mo Azzamon. :-) I gots 2 trades pending that will gar-own-tee yer silence.

  31. Patients paid off on that thur CDE trade I outlined a week ago, Dr. I'll pick up 5 Rocktober expeeery $13 dollah calls at .30 centavos. Cost of trade is 160.00,leaving 1179.00 in cashola.

  32. Azzamon alone will "likely" take the SPY to sub 214 by Fri but I will just pick up 2 SPY 215 putskis fer Fri expeeery heeeya at .75 merkit. Cost of trade is 160....leaving 1019.00 in cashola.

  33. Azzamon too GOOG to ignore now, went in personally a tad higher but I will pick up a signle 820 putski fer Fri expeery at 2.85. Cost ov trade is 295, leaving 724.00 in cashola.

  34. DumMunyMo spewin nonsense whilst I'm "banking gains and taking names" :-) Just took the SPY 215 putkis off at 1.39 adding 268.00 back to cashola after commish. Cash now back up to 992.00. Nice werk, DumMunyMo! :-)

  35. SPY "likely" to see 216 bafo the close today but I will go with 2 SPY 216 putskis for next Fri expeeery at 1.20ea. Cost of trade is 250.00, leaving 742.00 in cashola. The only question is...does Azzamon see 820.00 today. Whataya stink, DumMunyMo? :-)

  36. Gar-oooown-teed winnah thur, DumMunyMo. I'll close out me SPY trade heeeya at 1.65 ann see ifn I can "rally you to silence." :-) Gain on this trade wuz 320.00 afta commish, brangin cashola balance back to 1062.00. NTNX huh? Why not jist add to Azzamon? :-)

  37. Methinks it's time fer Douche Bag to bring a tad of nastiness to the merkits. No, not you DumMunyMo. Now that you are even on last years crAAPL buys you will be able to "delete" your port like ya did last year. :-) I mean DB. I'll pick up 2 DB $13 dollah putskis fer Fri expeeery here at .61 centavos. Cost of trade is 132.00, leaving 930.00 in cashola.

  38. DumMunyMo's gold trade might be DUST in the wind as early as today. Ifn it hits $40 and he's still holding I'm wreckin it goes even lower than that. :-) I'll sit on a limit to sell me new DB putskis at $1 dollah...spot ded on....jist in case. :-)

  39. The DB putskis purchased yesterday were for 10/21 expeeery. DB does not trade weeklys. Since yer now long (and wrong!) BAC I will "likely" add there soon, DumMunyMo. Ya skeeerd? :-)

  40. Time to reshort PBR, this time at an even higher level than even I "expected"...needs 10.43+, now at 10.41 n rising, which will fill my odor to buy 6 PBR Rocktober 21st expeeery $10 dollah putskis. Cost of this trade is $160, leaving 770.00 in cashola.

  41. I am adding to the PBR short here via the 10/21 expeeery $11 dollah putskis. I'll take 4 at .34 market. Cost of trade is 146.00, leaving 624.00 in cashola. PBR just traded above $11 dollahs heeeya.

  42. PBR gits top billing at DumMunyMo's? No choice but to add to position heeeya via Nov 18th expeeery $11 dollah putskis at .53 merkit. I'll pick up 3. That leaves 465.00 in cashola.

  43. Dublin up on PBR 11/18 expeeery $11 putskis here at .28 merkit at the new 12.13 high. I'll pick up 5 to go along with the 3 I already have. Cost of trade including commish is 150.00, leaving 315.00 in cashola.

  44. Ya need Mo Azzamon! I bin tellin ya. Whyst didn ya lissen thur, DumMunyMo?

  45. I'll take me 100% gain on me PBR 11/18 expeeery $11 dollah putskis here at .56, and also bank the 5 I paid .51 fer. 5.60X10+560-20commish adds 530.00 back to cashola. Now at 865.00.

  50. DUST long (and wrong!) now, DumMunyMo? Trading out of both sides ov yerass I see. Can you possibly fukk both sides of the trade up. I sawr ya werk in the past. I think you can do it! :-)

  51. SAWEET! Back in to take down the airlines I see. >>> "We know what we're doing. Did we not just bank a loss on GOOGL after we said it goes to $1000/sh?" LOL

  52. I'll save yer golden dummass, DumMunyMo! 5 GDX $24 calls for 11/18 expeeery at .25 centavos merkit. Close enuff. :-) This trade leaves 762.00 in cashola.

  53. GOOG werk, DumMunyMo, glad to see ya adding to yer bankster pazishuns. Ya STILL ainn got enuff Price Lies tho. Whilst yet getting ready to take the banks to bankruptcy, may I "suggest" a "1 share" buy in BRK.B? Trust me on thisn, da best advice ever given since yer hero Jim's suggestion that we all buy 1 share of SHLD back whenst it twas trading at like $200 dollahs/sh. :-)

  54. Hey, nice werk with SCHA taday too! I take it that Schwab is yer broker...being that it never traded at $52 n change today but that's what you "claimed" to have paid? I figgerd thur wuz "some" reezon ya shot back up thru $7K even as you wuz getting the snot kicked out of you.
