One Week Options. Are They A Good Bet In Times like This?

Look at how these these four stocks traded last week. 1) What a great week for one week Call option players on Boeing even though the stock ended up down .83 cents on the week. 2) Roku. Roku hasn't yet recovered from a not so good quarterly report. Roku lost $1.13 on the week. (Netflix in somewhat the same space was up $35.780.) 3) Disney suprised. I talked about that in a recent blog. 4) Now Caterpillar. It was up $12.83 Now The D.J.I. was down .11% or basically flat. In good times Call options can be your best friend. To be continued. Here is how Roku traded on the day.

FFIE "Faraday Future Intelligent Electric"

 This is a strange story. The stock Faraday Future sank on Wednesday by about 17% after recently doing a  80-1 reverse stock split. Then the stock went down about half-price again the day after. This time they announced that they would be issuing additional shares, for about an amount of 90 million dollars. If you have an EV company to run, that's not very much money. To add to the confusion a share buyback program to help support the stock's price was recently announced. You can't have it both ways. You can't be issuing new stock and buying it back at the same time. Money was recently wasted on that activity. Short-selling activity has plagued this company. Short sellers so far have won. When you have already three billion into the company and have only produced three vehicles there is a problem.

But wait, if you don't know the story it's a California-based company that

has just cranked out a few ( once again only three) high-end EVs and sold them to celebrities. That's not much of a game plan. It's also a company valiantly fending off critics who have watched this company struggle for so long.

When a stock falls into this price range it is dangerous and stands a very good chance of going into receivership. Google it and watch it yourself. It will be interesting to see how it goes. 

When things are dropping this fast it's best to stay away. 

They do make a cool-looking car but maybe being cool-looking is not enough. You can't keep going back to the well asking for more money. The stock is down over 97% in the last year.  Have you ever witnessed a stock dropping that much in price and then surviving? Probably not. Here is one of their electric vehicle models. They look like they will sell. Who knows?  Another car company I have blogged about is Polestar. Their stock has struggled. Investors are currently cautious on so many of these companies.   If you read about EV companies in China you will find out that there is a large number of EV makers in that country. Like over 80 different companies churning them out.  Maybe it's best just to stick with Telsa.
