Buying $VZ call was just kind of lucky - Warren Buffett added to his position as shown by his new additions. I should make some money for quick trade - say 15% - as I am using options.
One call it lady luck or just picking it as value play

Why is $SAP DOWN = Is it a broken company = NO it beat earning

Date August 4, 2014  Edited: August 5, 2014     Comments Comments (5)    Rate this post Recommend This Post (22)
$SAP is down with the index. It can easily rally 5% when the German Index $EWG reverses. Germany is down due to the sanctions imposed on Russia. It's economy has direct hit. I do not know all the knitty gritty. All I know the whole thing is over done.
I am a buyer of $SAP her - bought some options. Risk $1 down and upside $4 - good enough for me.
Please do youwr own home work

There are about 30 stocks which I qualify as hard Core Earning beaters and raise the estimates.
It is better if these are in mid cap sector with high short interest.
$SYNA, $SNA, $MCK are few
I will add more to list

$GNC = Some one is accumulating the shares could be Ichan - It fits the bill

Date August 1, 2014  Edited: August 1, 2014     Comments Comments (3)    Rate this post Recommend This Post (25)
GNCmissed earning and immediately from open saw buying on morning dip on July 28.
The stock has traded in narrow positive note all 4 days even when the market was down 300 points yesterday
It is more like some activist sees value in GNC at the current levels. All it takes is accumulate 2 to 4% under the radar and send send letter to Management to shape up. Enough for stock to go up 5 to 10%
GNC has P/E OF 12 DIVIDEND YIELD OF 2%.
2013 High was $55 now $33.20. It could be cross hairs of numbe…

My $XLNX trade for potential 50% profit in 35 day

Date August 1, 2014     Comments Comments (1)    Rate this post Recommend This Post (21)
$XLNX has been beaten up due to earning miss.
Now at $41.46
I bought Sept 40/41 call spread for 60 cents / option contract.
Target 94 cents as long as XLNX stays above $41
Sure I can loose 60 cents or cut loss some where
Please do your own home work.
PS - I will buy straight calls if stock dips below $40..80
