Why Not To Buy Not Rivian Calls With Two Days to Go?

It's obvious right? If you mess up and the stock opens the wrong way you only have one day for a rebound. Why put yourself in that position? Others might be in the camp of saying why not go for a fifty percent rebound on Thurday's morning opening. The stock sold of on Wednesday on very little volume. A morning pop is possible. The stock has being strong as of late. Here is it's five day chart. Now this, the seventeen series of Calls that expires in two days. They do look cheap after hitting a high of $1.55 on the day. If we look at a 30 day chart we will see that the stock is still in an uptrend. Why not look at the Call options one and two weeks out? Here are the seventeen series of Calls one and two weeks out They would be much safer to play and I will check in on these ones at a later date. So what happened on the Thursday opening? Let's switch gears for a moment and look at how Roku, a much higher priced stock opened and look at how their Call options moved.

Nio And An Earnings Report

Todays action is that a quarterly report came out showing that their car production number were down for the quarter. I have talked about this company before. Back on June 13th I wrote about the stock jumping on the news that their prices were coming down. Last November 28th I wrote about production output increasing and I wrote about the company on March 11th, 2022, and Feb 27th, 2022 when it was trading at $20.94. Back in November 2020 it was trading for over $60.00. One car they race is the fastest electric car in the world. Here is how things looked this morning after this report. More news. So now what. It's one year chart. Now this. Look at how it dropped on the opening. Now this. Nio was down $1.16 nine minutes into the opening action. So what make of all this. Production is off, the stock is now discounted, buy "Calls" like five months out for protection and try to get a quick rebound. Here is what happened. In at $163 and out at $238. Nio is not going aw

Blackberry and Home Depot - The Storm on The Horizon

Is the party just starting or it is soon to be over? The volume of trading was down today. I don't like trying to make calls on situations like this. I know that back on Nov 5th 2022 when the stock was at $4.41, I wrote a blog on this company and called it "How Long Will The Wait Be For This Company To Turn A Profit". The stock has struggled for a long time. On a different note what happens when hurricanes hit Florida? Home Depot can pop. We have witnessed some pretty wacky weather lately and hurricanes might be next on the list. How does anyone try and make sense out of any of this? You can't. It's best to walk away. But what do I know? A Sept 1st update. Here is it's five day chart. This weeks Calls that expired Sept 1st went up in price all week. **** A Sept 7th Blackberry update. The struggle continues again. **Sept 11th Is all this really welcoming news? * One week later, the stock now at $5.39. Bad news on Oct 5th. Management has a history of

Mullen : A Quick Read On A Fascinating EV Development - Updated December 2023

The companies CEO has written this letter to his shareholders. First a look at how the stock is trading. So here is the thing. There will be more investigated news coming out shortly on how the stock is being manipulated. Good luck on trying to figure that out. Amazingly the company has gotten this far and they are promising new vehicle deliveries in the next five weeks. That will be a major acheivement. Yet they will still need more money if they want to open up a new 650,000 square foot factory. This qualifies as a junk stock and most people would never waste their time following stories like this. It is however interesting. David Michery is not having fun times. *** Look at what has happened in the time it took me to write this blog, it dropped another 13%. Now look at an end of day chart and the volume trading. One day reversals like this are rare. It's back up again to $.74.** A Sept 3th update. Michery spoke out on a talk show called "Making money with Charles Pay

"Village Farms" and a Revisit to This Blog on August 28th

Do you have one hour and one minute to listen to a conference call? It's a slice of what is happening in the Canadian cannabis industry spoken by the insiders of one Canada's largest growers of it. These insiders were not afraid to talk and they seem to be on top of their game plan. If not, here is the final sentence of it. "We are confident we will lead the industry going forward". At lot of old timers will now start to follow this stock.These guys have huge growing facilities. Listen to what they have to say. It deserves a listen. Is it the dawn of a new day? You decide. Now two weeks later the excitement is fading away. These Calls have dropped to $.15 cents from $.20. Six months is a long time away. A December 2023 update. How did these March Call options make out? Look at this chart. The stock charge up to over $1.50. Yes they would have paid off large.

Electric Watercraft - Taiga - A Canadian Company.

The QQQ's Again

Back on July 26th I wrote a blog on trading the QQQ's. There is nothing magical about trading them, you just type in QQQ and follow the promps like any other stock. It's options on a basket of stocks. Stocks like Apple and the like. Pick whatever the day you want your series to expire. I like buying a few days time. Sometimes the markets lose their strength around noon on Fridays. It happened today. Here is it's five day chart and you can see the market selling off on Friday afternoon. So here is the trade I made today. I was in this position for 2.50 hours. You can see I bought an Aug 8th series so that would have given me until Tuesday. I got in at 11:53 a.m. It was an easy chart to play on the downside. Now I want to point out how this is a trading vehicle many traders recognize. Look at the closing summary of this series of Puts. There is something about it which stands out. Notice the open interest of 1,771 and the trading volume on the day of 31,765. These are hot
