What To Focus On - Part Two

My blog of November 27th was entitled "What to Focus On". Please read it. This week we are feeling a bit of a hangover. Last's weeks triple witching event is over. Stocks that were forced to contract in price to sqeeze out spectatate positions on them are now free to resume there old trading patterns. This Monday morning at 10:20 a.m. the Djia is up 301 points. There are also losers. So now what? Mark on your calendar exactly three months down the road how the markets traded on the first morning after one of these triple witching events and use this same logic to catch the upside on the next "hangeover" day like this. How do you pick the winners? Find a few stocks that have enjoyed a recent upswing and play them to pop on the first trading session after one of these events. This blog is just an observation.


When it comes to option playing are stocks in the thirty and forty dollar price range good options to play? I would say generally no. Why? Well, it generally takes good news or bad news to cause stocks in this price range to move and they can sometimes go sideways for months and months. Waiting for good news or bad news is not an exacating science. There are exceptions to this thinking, sometimes offbeat airline company stocks for example go charging up quickly for a week or two when it becomes apparent that material changes are happening in their operating environments. Five, ten and 15 dollars stocks and stocks like Caterpillar and Boeing that cost a lot more are where the action is. Harley Davidson (Hog) recently had good news and here is how the stock reacted.
Once again, options on stocks in the thirty and forty are not as much fun to play.
