Comfort Zone – Quick Comments for Oct 22 2014

A question posed this morning on my forum which I thought was worth sharing as I am sure others are in the same position this week after last week’s plunge. Question On Taking Profits Good day to everyone. I suspect that many of you are facing a similar issue after last week’s plunge just before expirations Friday.  I was holding many positions set to expire last Friday that were doing fine until the bottom fell out – so I rolled many of them out a…

Put Credit Spread On Amazon Stock Questions From Investor

Amazon stock draws a lot of investors. Over the past 12 months the stock has risen 50% and presently looks like it might want to try to challenge the most recent all-time high. The stock has 4 support levels at present. Two are very strong. The first support level is at $260 and the second at $285. The third level at $345 and the fourth at $390 have limited support although the $345 is better support than the $390. The option premiums are excellent as…

Market Direction Outlook For Oct 28 2013 – Up Some More

The market direction outlook for Friday was for the market to continue to consolidate. The overall market direction I was looking for was sideways with a bias to the upside.  Amazon stock and Microsoft Stock revenue reports enthused investors in general. The better revenue from Amazon and Microsoft drew more investors into the market. One of the bigger problems starting to develop is the number of analysts and economists who are beginning to turn more bullish on not just stocks but the economic outlook in…

Market Direction Outlook For Oct 25 2013 – Still Consolidating

The market direction outlook for Thursday was for stocks to continue to move sideways for at least another day. The bias was to the upside, but the overbought nature of the market naturally would dictate a rest to consolidate the gains and build support. Both the fast and slow stochastic indicators pointed to a sideways day. That did not happen. Earnings became the catalyst along with other news about Ford global sales being up pointing to the possibility that the global economy is not as…

Facebook Stock – What’s It Worth?

More emails are coming in on Facebook Stock and questions as well as comments. I suppose the biggest question being asked is the valuation of Facebook Stock itself. As I have indicated in my previous posts on Facebook Stock, I do not believe it is Stock Investment grade. In other words there remains too many unknowns at this point. I see no problem with Trading Option strategies against the stock itself, but valuations are all over the map, so to speak. Marketwatch Facebook Stock Article…

Put Selling Amazon Stock And Never Owning Shares

Put selling as many investors know, is a strategy of consistently earning small premiums against stocks.

Recently I received a number of emails from readers wondering if I could put together a strategy for put selling against Amazon Stock that might allow an investor to sell puts while…

Amazon Stock VS Apple Stock Which Is Best For Put Selling?

Recently I wrote an article in which I looked at Amazon Stock after its recent pullback to see if it was a buy. I received a number of emails from readers wondering if I thought Apple Stock would be better for selling puts against versus Amazon Stock. I took a look and was surprised by what I saw. Amazon stock is very strong which is surprising considering that today it is trading at 113 times Price To Earnings. That type of multiple is very rare…

Amazon Stock – Is It A Buy?

Amazon stock has tumbled more than 14% on October 26 and today (October 27) the stock rose 4%. With Amazon stock now down 10% and with probably more risk of selling ahead, is Amazon stock a buy? Today I received an email from a reader wondering if I could come up with a financial investment strategy that would take advantage of the fall in Amazon stock and the increased stock volatility. If an investor was interested in Amazon stock, what might be a good strategy…
