Hey guys its been awhile. Got killed playing with short term options back in the summer with SKX then went back to school so I was lacking funds. But for like the tenth time I am back! haha. I guess this thing takes awhile to figure out and you just have to learn from your mistakes. So what did I do for my first trade yesterday? Bought (17) JAN $30 calls of FAS at .76 at the open aka short term options lol. Picked them up at the open yesterday and they're looking pretty good in pre-market this morning and I'm thinking about selling at open depending on how the market moves. I think Fins are going to start to recover pretty fast so with profits (hopefully) I'm thinking about getting longer term calls in FAS & BAC.

AMRN...I know I sold this stock but it has been volatile the past few days. Might consider day trading this one. I can't day trade with the 401k. Have to wait another day for funds to clear.

sold my calls for 1.28 today for a decent gain around 1. Market really hasn't done anything for a few hours so I'm glad I got out when I did. Almost debating on jumping into FAZ, but that would just be crazy since we're not getting any kind of pullback in fins right now I feel.

Wish I had pulled the trigger yesterday on C and FBC. Would of got in C at $4.90 and FBC at $1.62. Ohh well....searching for a play. Watching AKS, AA, MT, C, FBC, SIRI, BIDU, NFLX, T.

NFLX...October 7, 2002 it was at $3.29. Today its at $192. That is a 58 bagger. WOW...Sure Wish I had loaded up on that.

YRCW really breaking out the last few days. I really thought about getting in at 3.50 the other day, but was fully vested in other equities. Oh well, shoulda, coulda. You all know how it goes. Anyway, I am watching this on closely though. I really think this one can be a serious multi bagger in 2011. We'll see.

I added to my call positions in FAS with April 11 $34's and have been adding tons of March 11 $50 call options of LVS. Showed support around the 44.20's and I think its going to run up before they report earnings coming up. They moved the earnings date up so I think thats a good sign because the stock was getting hit pretty hard and I don't think that they would want to move their earnings date up if they were going to report bad earnings. Also picked up a few Aug 11 $100 HES calls for $.96 ...felt like going shopping I guess with that one haha.

I bought 2,350 shares of C last week at $4.88. I was going to buy AKS instead at $14.50. Definately would of paid $14 even for sure. AKS jumped above $16 this week. All the steel companies jumped.

T...my father's pick. He pointed out the fact that they are paying a 6% Divy making it very attractive for a safe low risk long play. I'm not crazy about T but posting it anyways.

FBC...didn't buy any and happy I didn't. I would of paid $1.62. Sure wish I did buy it the other day at 10 am when it dropped to $1.30s. Stock back at $1.64.

AMRN...you all seriously have to look at the stock chart. Yes I sold out. Over a year, the stock has come back from the grave. It has been very volitle the past month. One day its $9+ the next day its at $7. Go look at the charts on it. Seems like some easy money can be made here.

I think years from now people are going to be wondering why they didn't buy C at these levels, same with BAC. T's time has come and gone or atleast its not going to see any major growth for awhile IMO...its VZ's time to shine now and they have a pretty decent Dividend if thats the only reason you're playing it (5.3%).

Main stocks I'm watching for awhile: BAC, C, FAS, LVS** (earnings next week!!!), MGM, AA, AKS, AAPL, CAT, HES, FCX, SRZ, ACTC. Unreal day NFLX is set to have, its sickening to think I use to own $80 calls of that only back in August.

I knew I should have picked up YRCW at 3.50 the other week. I could kick myself. I am still projecting this one to be a big winner in 2011.

OREX...old stock we played a few years ago. Well, it dropped from $9 range to $2.50. I thought about posting the bounce play when it did drop but the fact that the company had ZERO income. I felt the bounce would be little. Well, I dropped the ball for you all. Its at $3.38 now. That is a 35.2% bounce.

AJGrano, I agree with most of your watch lists. Haven't checked up on HES, FCX, SRZ before but the others a familiar to me. I really like AKS. Think that is my favorite for the fact its around $15-16 and it will likely jump to $22-26 with-in this year. Over time the bank stocks will become nX plays. What the n = will be the fun part. I think 2-5x would be reasonable in a 2 year period.

OREX...$3.61 close. Now I feel bad I didn't post it when it got KO'd. I think its moving back up for several reasons. Huge price drop. Reports saying their FAT drug still has hope. IMO...too risky!!

You will see me move involved here. Been putting money back in my account plus playing with my 401k again. So expect more out of me.

Guess OREX investors are confident in a mere possibility of a rejected drug to get approved somehow. However, more testing is required which should take 6 months to years "IMO". So another jump to $3.94...wow. Its up 57.6% from low. Again...sorry for not posting any sooner.

Stock market looks good today. Just about everything is positive.

I don't think its too late to buy C, AKS, F, SIRI (would like cheaper but $2.00 target by MS makes it a bargin), BAC

I haven't done any real searching, just a quick scan here and there. Going to ride my C for a while. In at $4.88.

Superbowl was as I predicted for winner. I'd like to say my OSU guy AJ HAWK won the game on Defense over Michigan's C. Woodson who got a broken collar bone. Just a little fun I will have at work today.

AOL had a ad played during the superbowl. I just read a news report on AOL. LOL!!! First off I find it hard to believe people still use DIAL UP for internet. In 2003 they had about 27 million subscriptions. Now they have under 4 million. A 86% drop. Now they pay over 800 Million for a news group. LOL!!! Do they really have the DUMBEST CEO's or what. (Man that extra news sure makes me want to drop my Cable 9MG internet for 56k Dial Up...not to mention install phone service in my house which I have NEVER had). I vote AOL as the most wreckless company this year.


Morpheus, Its more like Africa where all the animals migrate in search for food. They keep growing in numbers but getting less to eat. Someone has to drop....The SHORTS are hungry.


Maybe you can answer this question. The market moves up substanially...why did the financials stay put?

Most of the reasons people go broke is not because they failed to make money but because they spent their hard-earned money on bad investments that went to zero. In other words, they broke Buffett’s rules. actually two rules, stated by Warren Buffett, the greatest investor ever: “Rule No. 1: Don’t Lose Money. Rule No. 2: Don’t Forget Rule #1.”Much more important than figuring out how to add dollars to your net worth is how to avoid losing the dollars you’ve already accumulated. simply put..Not to loose money, is making money..and always always respect the power of cyber vegas

saw BAC this morning and was thinking many of the fins would have a chance. AIB has been a beast all the way from 2.50. SERIOUS volatility lol. Keeping an eye on FBC to see if it survives or not and DRL as a technical play.

FLAGSTAR BANCORP INC Earnings Call scheduled for Wed, Apr 27CCBN

All post are my opinion. Do your own DD. Who's clicking your buy/sell button!?
