CELG & DIS – Trigger Happy?

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 28 Feb 2008

I might have gotten a little trigger happy today.  My limit orders weren’t hitting, so I reduced a few of them and two hit 30-40 minutes later.

CELG – I sold one April 55 naked put (LQHPK) and received $239.25 after …

Sold SFLY Uncovered Calls

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 26 Feb 2008

I’m still betting against SFLY.  It found support not far below its current price, but I think the upside is very limited.  I lowered my targeted strike and today while SFLY was trading at 16.27 I sold three April 17.50 …

Foster Wheeler (FWLT) Naked Puts

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 26 Feb 2008

FWLT is one of those stocks I like to keep coming back to.  It’s volatile enough to give good premiums and profitable enough that I don’t see a complete wipeout in their future.  They missed earnings today which made the stock …

No Index Chart

Monsanto Naked Puts

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 21 Feb 2008

Monsanto (MON) is another of my favorites for selling options on.  I think it has a good long term chance of moving higher and it’s volatile which pushes the premiums higher.

While MON was trading at $117.09 I sold one April …

Easing Back In With DSX Naked Puts

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 20 Feb 2008

DSX is so volatile that I figured it would drop again some, but the premium for the April 25 was so high already that I didn’t want to miss out if it stabalized or even just went up a little …

Post Option Expiration Trades

Filed under: Finance,Stock Picks - 19 Feb 2008

After my February covered calls and naked puts were called away and assigned I had the need to recover some and open new positions.

NVDA – Those who are tired of my rambling on about NVDA will be happy to know …

Diversification of My Portfolio

Filed under: Account Summary,Finance - 18 Feb 2008

I updated my diversification table on my Current Portfolio page and below.  I’m far too heavy in Tech since options expiration.  What kept me balanced before expiration is no longer part of my account and …
