S&P Assigns Junk-Level Corporate Credit Rating to Twitter = What now

I had sold my TWTR options yesterday around 2 to 2:30 PM. The stock went up this morning and was feeling sorry for letting go of TWTR.
As it turns out it was blessing in disguise.  I was tempted in buying TWTR again and some how never pulled the trigger. The volume was 3X average volume and evening headlines suggest tough road ahead for TWTR
I will play twitter on short side as of now till the smoke clears

Both are done big.
I use 5 days rule to buy tripped stocks
I bought $TWTR in 401 today with a limit of $40. I also have TWTR CALL spread bought yesterday for Nov and Dec. Both trades are green.
I did sell TWTR stock at 40.88 for quick intraday 1.85% gain after trading costs. Still a buyer or trader in TWTR at these levels

I had limit orders to sell Bank of Montrial call options and sold above my ask in first few minutes. The stock is going to go ex dividend tomorrow and I can buy the same options cheaper in couplre of days - 70% chance of buying same options cheaper.
I was busy with other things in life.
Priorities take over. I may add few picks on long or short side later on today

My five day wait rule says do not buy a stock for 5 trading days when it pulled back due to earning. Let the market shake the tree and the stock find some kind of base at lower daily volume. 
It has save me lot of grief in the past
Today's poster child is TWTR
