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. Now let us look at the next week's action. Let's begin with Here is how Roku traded on the day. Can you see how buying in on the opening would have been a mistake. That is a common hhemeon on Monday morning, one day Call option trading.

A 1 for 100 Reverse Stock Split. Imagine Living Through That?

Here it is, I have talked about Mullen before.
Now a letter from the C.E.O.
$1,000 worth of stock is now worth ten dollars. One would have to ask the question as to whether there is even any point in keeping this company going? Stumbling along shipping out a few EV trucks here and there is a recipe for a slow death. Here how it traded this week after the reverse split. ($9.84 prior to the reverse split was $.09 cents. People selling out on the morning of the reversal thinking the stock would continue to sink forever, it probably will, sold out only to watch new sharks buying it getting an amazing short term rise. That was somewhat unexpected).
Yes there was a bounce however who wants to buy in now? Look at it's five year chart. What a mess! This wasn't the first time the company did a reverse split.
There where some comments flying in the air last summer to address the issue of short sellers interfering but in all fairness management seemed to be to busy bragging about how quickly their one thousand and fifty horsepower EV could do time lapses around a race tract in California.
In all fairness it's a tough industry to get going in.
Faraday Future mentioned above is another stock we have mentioned in the past as it also has done a reverse stock split. It was a 1 for 70 reverse stock split in late September and then stock dropped another 50 percent after it started to trade at it's new price. See where it is trading now.
These stocks, while interesting to watch are a fools game. (Well not if you were shorting it).
