Options, understandings and tactics

By megfk, April 25, 2014

Alan – We open here a forum for discussing options. It might be helpful to open the discussion with a copy of the paragraphs that I wrote 4/24 about options. I don’t know how to cut-and-paste that material.

Before I opened this discussion forum, I noticed a question about choosing a stock that might perform well as an option. I’ve already briefly addressed the subject…and would appreciate knowing about the thinking of others.

I have years of experience, but could not pass myself off as an ”expert.” I prefer that this discussion forum be a gathering of investors with an interest in options…with all of those with greater experience contributing things that they have learned. Our goal is to benefit one another.

This is a discussion topic or guest posting submitted by a Stock Gumshoe reader. The content has not been edited or reviewed by Stock Gumshoe, and any opinions expressed are those of the author alone.

by Bottarelli Research B Monday, December 04, 2017
PayPal $PYPL – NASDAQ has proven to be a consistent cash cow this year, up 80% in virtually a straight line. Now after PYPL sold off 10.6% over the past few weeks, a sharp trader seized the weakness and bought 6,000 PYPL February 72.5 calls for $3.65 each.
