Elway Rings Opening Bell/ Under Armour (UA) Cracks $100

Thursday, January 30th, 2014

1:35pm (EST)

It was good to see “The Duke” ring the NYSE opening bell this morning as no one in the NFL has done a better of job of pulling off big-time acquisitions than number 7.

Ditching a dicey, yet exciting, stock pick (think Tebow) for a beaten down blue-chip (think Manning) was perhaps the most guttiest call ever made.  But, the man knows quarterbacks, put his boots to the ground, did his homework, and has made a nice return on his investment.

The big payday will be winning the Super Bowl, of course, and going into battle there is no other quarterback we would take right now, other than Peyton.  He is the Warren Buffet of QB’s and we would bet a Fifty if we were in Vegas he has his team well prepared for the Big Game.  Tip, give the points.

As far as the market, the indexes have once again bounced off the bottom of the trading ranges and are pushing resistance as we head into the second half of trading.  Earnings have been the big story as Facebook (FB, $61.41, up $7.88), Qualcomm (QCOM, $73.11, up $1.99) and Under Armour (UA, $104.18, up $18.97) passed Wall Street expectations.

We were expecting Under Armour to have a big quarter as we were watching February call options on the stock.  The current market volatility has made earnings trades much more trickier but we had a good feeling shares would make a huge move based on the results.

The stock had been in a tight $80-$85 trading range going into the announcement and we were following the February 87.50 calls (UA140222C00087500, $16.45, up $13.90) up until last week.  As you can see, these options are up 545% today after closing at $2.55 into Wednesday’s close.

We usually don’t like to pay over $2 for an option as most of our trades are on options that have premiums in the $0.50-$1.25 range.  These aforementioned calls were a little pricey but we should have pulled the trigger on a small position as we could have purchased 5 contracts to keep the position in the $1,000-$2,000 range and where we are comfortable trading.

The risk with higher priced premium options is that if UA would have disappointed and shares dipped below $80, these options would likely expire worthless.

Next week will offer some great possible earnings trades but we are trying to pick stocks that have other headline events pending (drug trials) or ones that appear to be ready to breakout or breakdown based on the chart work.

We list a lot of these types of trades for our Weekly Wrap EVERY week and a few of them make it to our Daily Watch List.  We have said for the past 2 weeks with volatility picking up, 10%-20% moves are coming in stocks and strangle or straddle option trades could do well.

These types of option strategies are a good way to make high double-digit and even triple-digit gains with less risk as you are hedged.  However, it is important not to overpay and to figure out the breakeven points.

Our trading course, How to Trade Options on Momentum Stocks, goes more in-depth on how use straddle and strangle option trades to reduce risk and enhance returns.  For those of you that upgraded or purchased a 1-year deal in December, you should be getting tracking numbers by Friday afternoon to let you know when the course will arrive on your doorstep.  The coupon code to get a 1-year deal for $789 on our DAILY publication, and the option course at no charge ($895 value), is still open and expires Friday at midnight.  For the coupon code, please email us as we only have a limited amount of extra copies available.

The Dow is up 140 points to 15,878 and the S&P 500 is higher by 23 points to 1,797.  The Nasdaq is surging 78 points to 4,129 and the Russell 2000 has hit blackjack (up 21) and is at 1,143.  The S&P Volatility Index ($VIX, 16.05, down 1.30) remains stuck between 17.50-15.

Amazon.com (ANZN, $400.92, up $16.72) and Google (GOOG, $1,140.55, up $33.63) report their numbers after the close.

We have a lot to talk about inside the Members Area so let’s get on it.

Google (GOOG) Call Options Turn $1,000 into $20,000 in 1 Day, Here’s the Proof/ Profit Alert 150%, 172% (OPK)!!!

Friday, October 18th, 2013

1:20pm (EST)

The bulls are stampeding Wall Street and continue to push the market to fresh all-time highs following a number of positive earnings reports.

Google (GOOG, $1,003.99, $115.20) knocked it out of ballpark after beating estimates by 40 cents.  The company reported a profit of $10.74 a share versus expectations for $10.34 a share.  Revenue came in at $14.89 billion and also beat estimates for $14.79 billion.

We haven’t traded Google as much as we use to due to the high option premiums but there could have been some sweet money made if call options were bought ahead of yesterday’s close.

With shares at $888, the options were pricing a 5% price swing and based on those projections, the stock was expected to trade at $940 or roughly $820 following the news.  Given the currently in the market, we figured a 10% move was possible and that would have put the stock near $990 or $800.

The suit-and-ties have been bearish on the stock as many expected a miss but Google surprised to the upside with its first beat in 2 years on both the top and bottom lines.

We have been hot with earnings and we should’ve listed some Google call options when we were doing our homework for the Weekly Wrap last weekend.  We listed a number of trades that have gained 100%, 200%, and even 400% this week and while we caught some of that action, we missed one that would have turned $1,100 in over $20,000!

As you can see from the Yahoo Finance quote below, the Google November 1000 calls (GOOG131116C01000000, $20.86, up $19.76) closed at $1.10 yesterday and are up a jaw-dropping 1,796%!

GOOG101813

A 10 contract option trade using these call options would have cost $1,100.  Right now, you could cash out for $20,860.  Amazing!  If you could only afford to do 1 contract it would have cost $110.  Right now, you could cash out for $2,860.

This is the power of options and why we do our homework.  Options are the most lucrative investment you will ever discover and why we play the game.

Of course, if Google would have missed expectations shares could have been southbound and below $800.  If that had been the case, these call options would have gotten spanked and probably would have been down 75% or more.

Next week promises to be just as exciting and we will once again be covering a bevy of possible earnings trades in our Weekly Wrap.  Some of the trades will be transferred to our Daily Watch List but it is impossible for us to list them all because of the current trades and work we do for our Daily updates.  This is why we have a great research team and why the newsletters are separate publications.

Google (GOOG), Microsoft (MSFT) Take a Hit

Friday, July 19th, 2013

1:25pm (EST)

The heat wave across America has effected the bulls as they remain white-hot but they were cooled following yesterday’s push to record highs.

The bulls were behind the 8-ball as soon as the market closed on Thursday as Microsoft (MSFT, $31.63, down $3.81) and Google (GOOG, $894.70, down $15.98) both missed Wall Street’s earnings estimates.  Mister Softee reported its worst quarter in a decade after missing forecasts by a whopping 9 cents while Google whiffed on earnings and revenues with both striking out and coming in below the bar.  Microsoft is breaking down like a rented mule as shares are sliding 11% but Google could hold $900 following last night’s after-hours dip near $850.  Impressive.

Surprisingly, futures were slightly higher when we hit the hay last night but were in the red by the opening bell (but not by much).  While the Tech sector may have disappointed, the Industrial stocks, like General Electric (GE, $24.68, up $1.05), came in with better-than-expected numbers that has helped offset some of the weakness.

There is a chance we get a mixed close as some of the indexes could see green before the weekend and overall, the action still feels bullish heading into next week.  We have a number of trades in play with July options expiring and with some of our current trades so we have to keep things short today although there is so much more we want to talk about.

We have already started working on our Weekly Wrap and we have another winning trade that will likely close today that will get our Track Record to 27-3 for the publication and 71-5 overall since inception.

As we head to press, the Dow is down 33 points to 15,515 and we would like to see 15,500 hold into the close.  The S&P is slipping 2 points to 1,687 and a close at current levels, or above 1,685, would be bullish for next week.  The Nasdaq is getting whacked for 31 points and is at 3,580.  The drop below 3,600 will need to be watched but if 3,575 holds the bulls should be okay.  The Russell 2000 is also down a deuce and is just below 1,050.  A close at or above this level would be a great clue for higher prices next week but a little pullback wouldn’t kill the momentum as long as 1,045-1,040 holds into the close.

We have had a tremendous week and we said at the beginning of the month our next batch of trades could be special and since late April we have been lights out.  We have been adding new trades all week and will continue to do so while protecting profits.  It is still a GREAT time to invest in options as we see volatility picking up over the next few months creating even more explosive profits.

We will be back Sunday night with the Weekly Wrap and we have another Profit Alert for the Daily on a trade that returned us 80%.  We could have additional Alerts for the Daily if we close or add a new position but if you don’t hear from us, we will see you Daily folks again on Monday morning.  Until then, have a great weekend!  (Stay cool and drink plenty of water as the heat wave continues.)

Apple (AAPL) Hits Fresh All-Time Highs

Monday, August 27th, 2012

12:25pm (EST)

To no surprise, the market has traded in a tight range with both the bulls and bears getting a little piece of the action. 

Economic news has been light although there was a regional report worth mentioning.  The Texas Manufacturing Survey came in at -1.6 for August which was a huge improvement from July’s reading of -13.2.  

As far as story stocks, Tiffany & Company (TIF, $62.60, up $4.10) missed earnings by a penny and cut full-year guidance but shares are up.  Tiffany reported a profit of $91.8 million, or $0.72 a share, versus $90 million, or $0.69 a share, in the year-earlier period.  As far as its outlook, the company gave a 2012 profit range of $3.55-$3.70 a share versus prior estimates of $3.70-$3.80 a share.  Despite the lowered guidance and slightly worse-than-expected results, the stock is up 7%.

Apple (AAPL, $677.17, up $13.95) is popping 2% higher and hit an all-time high of $682 share shortly after the open.  We mentioned the news from Friday night the company won its patent litigation case against Samsung and it was a huge win along with the $1 billion in settlement charges.  Google (GOOG, $668.88, down $9.75) shares are trading lower as worries arise on what impact this could have on its Android phones. 

Google, along with others, may have to come up with a “work around” plan as it tweaks or deletes certain features in new devices that may threaten Apple’s existing patents.

Samsung, which trades in the Asian markets, lost $12 billion in market cap, as shares were punished overseas. 

We’ve got a little action happening with our current trades which are showing some nice gains so we have to roll so we can update our subscribers.

As we head to press, the Dow is up a dozen points to 13,170 while the S&P 500 is higher by 4 points to 1,415.  The Nasdaq is advancing 10 points to 3,079.

Google (GOOG) Beats Estimates, Shares Crack $600

Friday, July 20th, 2012

9:00am (EST)

The bulls won their third-straight session on Thursday and made another run at upper resistance levels but ran out of gas midday way through the session.  The surge during the first half of trading was enough to allow them to coast to victory as the bears never got it in second gear.  

The Dow added 35 points, or 0.3%, to finish at 12,943.  The blue-chips tested a high of 12,977 at lunchtime after dipping to a low of 12,889 shortly after the open.  The bulls made a push at 13,000 and if cleared it could be smooth sailing up to 13,200.  We mentioned yesterday if the bulls fail to clear this level by the weekend there could be a test back down to 12,600 over the near-term.

The S&P 500 popped 4 points, or 0.3%, to settle at 1,376.  We said a close above 1,375 would get 1,400 into play and yesterday’s high was 1,380.  The low was 1,371.  The 52-week high is 1,422 which was hit on the first trading day of April.

The Nasdaq led the way higher after jumping 23 points, or 0.8%, to close at 2,965.  Tech touched a top of 2,976 and is a little over 1% away from taking out the 3,000 level.  Unlike the Dow and S&P, the Nasdaq held green all day and above 2,950 which was bullish.

The Russell 2000 fell 3 points to finish at 802.  The small-caps traded to 808 and we said a close above 810 would be bullish but the negative close could be another clue the market is topping.  The S&P Volatility Index ($VIX, 15.45, down 0.71) fell another 4% and has reached our mid-teen target.  There is still a chance the VIX could push the low teens and that would mean the S&P 500 is at 52-week highs.  

After the close, Google (GOOG, $593.06, up $12.30) and Microsoft (MSFT, $30.67, up $0.22) came in with mixed results but shares of both companies got nice little pops in extended trading. 

Google beat estimates and had a huge beat on revenue by $70 million.  Microsoft posted its first ever quarterly loss after taking charges for its online division and an expensive, money losing acquisition.  However, Mr. Softie posted strong sales as revenue rose 4% and topped $18 billion for the quarter.  Google was trading above $600 when after-hours trading closed while Microsoft was above $31.  Both levels are holding before the bell.

You would think futures would have gotten a nice pop but they were weak all night.  Shortly after 1am (EST), Dow futures were down 33 while the Nasdaq futures were flat as a pancake.  They have gotten worse this morning as we head towards the opening bell and look like this: Dow (-66), S&P 500 (-9), Nasdaq (-8).

We have an important chart to show you this morning on a stock we have traded options on 4 times over the past few months.  All of the recommendations have been put options and have made our subscribers 172%, 144%, 29% and 6%.  Shares are right near resistance again so let’s go see what the chart looks like inside the Members Area.

Trader Comments:
    I just want you to know that I love the way you write and explain everything. I am new to this, and have lost 50% of my account until I met you guys. Iit is slowly coming back. I will be calling to set up a year of membership rather than the one quarter. Thanks again, and LOVE YOU ALL. REGINA L.

    Rick, I appreciate the advice. I think I will just sit back and utilize your selections only for awhile. This will obviously save me a great deal of money in commissions. I have gone thru your entire site including the video on money management. This has brought me to the stark realization that I have been trading too much for too little. I definitely have not been "swinging for the fences", but I also think I have been getting impatient with trades and getting out too fast. This has no doubt caused me too trade too much. I like, and definitely agree on, the advice on money management. Thanks for the help. STEVE T.

    Thank you!!! I held on to the NFLX position since Nov. 13 at a cost of $1.89. Sold ½ on April 14th for a 540% return and the other ½ upon earnings for 702% return. Total profit of $11,615 a 621% return. Keep the recommendations coming and thanks to you and your team for the service you provide. SCOTT H.

    Rick & Team, GREAT Call on NKE for my two trading accounts:
    1) Entry at .65, out at 1.45, 1.55 Profit = $415
    2) Entry at .60, out at 1.75, 1.50 Profit = $485 PETER G.

    Hey Rick! Here is an update on what your picks have done in my accounts.

    1) Great call on the JoyG March 55. I bought when you said, then bought again on one of the dips. Booked 80+% profit. Made enough to pay for your service for years to come.

    2) Also booked profits on your Berk Feb 74 (80%) and threw a major chunk of change at the March 75’s (190+%). I would have never known that Buffet's stock had split if it weren’t for your service. Bought the shares also for the long haul. Won’t look at them for another 20 years. Great job on getting us in before the indexes did.

    3) Took profit on your Imax March 12.5. 20 cent trailing stop at 1.90 yesterday. Not sure what the profit on that was, but profit is profit.

    I see that you took a loss on some of these. It’s all good. I look to trade your “ideas” not your exact calls. I THANK YOU! For your ideas and commentary. Keep up the good work. And keep those ideas coming. LAWRENCE O.

    Loving this subscription so far! I got into the BRK feb 76 calls the day you talked about right before the split...now up over 300% (0.70 to 2.475)! Keep the good picks coming and let's see some OSIS and EMC upside soon! Just wanted to share my positive enthusiasm on your newsletter...it gives us individual investors great ideas on not only the options market, but also the broader equity market! Case in point is BRK...I can't always read the breaking business news but its easy to read your twice daily updates on my smartphone...helped me get some BRK shares immediately after the split which I will hold for the long haul! Thanks again! C.J.

    Aloha Rick - Thank you so much for the great CL pick. I am not sure if there was buy-out/merger news or what but at 3PM today Colgate-Palmolive absolutely EXPLODED to the upside, and my calls turned into green candy when they went from 1.40 to 3.8 in a matter of seconds! I even sold a few for over 4.0! Much thanks and keep the solid picks up my friend, honestly. Only a fool would scoff at 267% gains... Peace! SHAUN

    I like the fact that you ask for comments from subscribers. Good customer service. By the way, am enjoying the service so far. Some good profitable calls. Keep up the good work. MICHAEL K.

    Woo hoo! Out for 50% on WMT this am. Making up for my depression for getting out of pcln for a 30% gain monday :( you the man! any word on the manual? My friend Mike ( who I sent to your service) told me he emailed you about your integrity in reporting fills. I echo that sentiment big time.. keep it up! Cheers!

    Hi Rick, as a new member all I can say is, 'show off' LOL, with PCLN. JAY P.

    Rick, I am a new subscriber to your service, and I want to say I am impressed. I am impressed by your results, but more than that I am impressed by your reporting of your fills. You could have easily said you got that Wal-Mart call today for 80 cents, instead you reported 98 cents! Good job and keep it up, I watched the reporting of the fills first, and then I subscribed. Thank You. MIKE

    Hi, good morning. I jumped the gun a little on this one (PCLN). But still made $1,675.00 profit!! Very happy!! Keep up the good work!! Thanks. TRISH D.

    Hi there, I have joined recently, and I am very happy to tell you that I am up over $10,000 on your picks in a month. I started on 10/7 with the Intel pick. I'll be your member for life. Please don't quit on us. Also, I am learning a lot about options. I didn’t get in your recent APOL and that gold trade and only had one loss on CHK. I appreciate all the DD you do. I enjoy your market commentaries. Best advice site period, and I have tried a few here and there. Again, you guys rock! MIN L.

    Thanks be to Momentum Options Trading for providing me with some fantastic wins. I just started with this service and am up nearly 50% in less than a month. There have been losses, but if I manage them properly, I will continue the best efforts given on the blog (in which there are no complaints). What a great cause for humanity. I feel more confident about my trades and continue to play the wins. Best of all, I am now keeping my regular paychecks in the bank! Thank you! JOE G.

    Rick - I wanted to say thanks for getting me started on the right foot with your service. I have made six trades since starting on October 22, 2009. Five are winners and One loser netting me $6,245. Thanks again and keep the trade recommendations coming. GREG F.

    I got into the Nike 60 Call at 1.85, sold at 5.00, also bought a 55 put at 1.05, but got stopped out at .35. What a ride! $2830.00 in the black even with the put. It's right at 100% return. I hope earnings season coming up is going to look like this trade. NOEL

    Nice call on Nike. I think I'll go buy a pair with my profits! : ) I did the straddle for safety but still made 62% on the trade. Not bad for less than 24 hours. If Goldman is right, then the Nov 70s or 75's could be a steal today. TODD F.

    What a sweet way to get introduced to Momentum. My first trade based on your picks and it a 2X. Thank you! PAUL H.

    “Limit order was set at 1.60 on RIMM so it sold. I may have left some money on the table but you can't go broke making a profit. That was a fun trade. Thank you. Good call. I’ve been watching and trading Rick's advice since March. It’s usually a fun ride, but I give him heck when it's wrong to. :) ” NOEL

    “Your service rocks! I made bank on Dendreon last week! The other thing I have to say is that it took me quite a while to find a REAL options trading service like yours. Most of what’s out there is 99% scam and very sketchy. Momentum Options Trading is the first service I found that I can trust and seriously make money with.” CHRISTIAN

    “I made $420.00 on ANF in 2 days. Thanks for the trade and updates on getting out of the trade.” JOHN

    “I did follow a lot of your trades with 1-2 contracts per trade and YTD I’m up 108%. I try not to follow blindly by not entering all of your trades and sometimes entering the ones you don’t. I entered AIG a few weeks ago against recommendation – that one hurt.” CHARLES M.

    “I have been following you for several months and am interested in the new service. I hate to see the free service go away but as they say, “all good things must come to an end”. My ability to join will be greatly influenced by the monthly fee so I’m very curious to see the new prices. Thanks for making April a great month for me and my family.” BRYAN C.

    “I have really enjoyed the past month since finding your blog. You have made some great calls. I would appreciate info. on the new options mentoring program. Thanks.” JOHN H.

    “Hi Rick, I have been following your blog for several months now and I would like to be including on the list for your new service and to receive more information about it. And yes I was a Dendreon winner with your tips. Turned $280 into $7700, and literally saved my butt.” JEFFREY

    “I made over 6k on your Dendreon trade, and I’m very interested in learning how you pick and trade options. Sign me up.” ED

    “Rick – Wow what a day! I got in at the Dendreon calls at $2.25. Thanks to for your advice. I appreciate that. This company has a lock on this type of therapy and no one else in the world is close. Kind of reminds me of the type of companies that Peter Lynch and Warren Buffet suggest that investments be made in. Companies that can build a moat around their business model, that allows them to charge a premium for their product or service. In other words - a monopoly.” GREG

    “Hi Rick, Thank you so much for the Dendreon trade, I made almost $10,000 with that trade with a little over $2,000 investment. You have shown me the power of options trading. Again, thank you so much for all your inputs.” KEN

    “Hi Rick, thanks for the encouragement to play the dendreon calls! did freaking great! Got in the first lot at $1.44 on 3-24-09, sold at $2.45, 70% not bad. Bought it back at $2.30 on 4-7-09 closed out on 4-14-09 for 454% gain! Wow! I love it when that happens. So, thanks the encouragement to get back in when others were saying sell, sell, sell. Keep up the good work.” GARETT

    “Rick – Thanks for Dendreon – it has made all the headlines today! I missed on RIMM earlier, but I’ve been holding onto DNDN calls since 3rd week March. Of course today it all paid off today, as DNDN rocketed up.” TERENCE

    Rick, new member...Studied all current trades, did some chart work,picked ZNGA, PEP, MGM...Sold on Feb. 2 for $3600.00 profit...Cost for 1-year membership to your newsletter was less than $1000.00..All I have to say..Thank you. John H –

    Rick, I purchased 10 contracts of the Nike March 85 puts Thursday afternoon for $2.00. Thing is, I was upset because the puts went down to $1.60 or so before the market closed. Well, needless to say Nike didn’t impress Wall Street and when I turned on the computer this morning the puts were worth $7.10! Sold them for a $5,100 profit!. Thanks again, you are the MAN. Chuck J-

    Hi Rick,

    I will start off with a thank you for your time and dedication to all
    the research you and your team commit yourself to. This is not me just being excited about the profits I have accumulated aka (bank) ! You have helped me get back to the passion I had of researching stocks/options. Keith N-

    Hi Rick,

    I want to share my great results on GMCR. Based on your comments on February 15th, I bought 20 options at $0.28. They closed today at $7.00, which is a 2,300% gain. My $560 dollars turned into $14,000 in less than a month. In decades of trading, this is my single best trade ever. Thank you! By the way, the Dow was down 228 points today and I could care less. What a great trade. It proves the amazing power of options. I am so grateful for your service, which calls it straight all the time, your options trading manual, and most of all, your amazing skill
    at finding winning trades. I have attached a copy of the trade from
    my brokerage screen.

    Hi Rick,

    Wow!! my account it up 70% since i joined last month and market is going the opposite direction. Really appreciate your service. I just wanted to drop a note to say THANK YOU. Hope to be with you guys for a very long time. Mel

    Rick –

    I bought 10 Deckers Outdoor (DECK) May 55 puts at $0.50 on 4/26/12 and sold them on 4/27/12 for $1.65. I made $1150 in one day. Thanks. I knew something good would happen sooner or later.
    HOW THE HECK did you know Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR) was going to go down 20 points???!!!! I bought 10 of the May 35 puts at $0.49 and then 5 more at .30. I sold them at 5.80. Thank you again.
    You have made a believer out of me. Alan

    Rick –
    I have only been a member for about 6 weeks but I have done well on most of the trades. My first two were QQQ and SPY a month ago and since then I've gotten into the groove and been doing well.
    I try to execute the trades that you recommend as soon as you send them out, sometimes I can't and I miss the Entry price. However, sometimes when I miss the Entry, the price goes down and I get a better price.
    That's exactly what happened with GMCR.
    You recommended it at around $.81 I think, but by the time I got to it, the price was $.27. I bought 100 Puts on Wednesday May 2, 2012 and sold half of them 24 hours later at $5.95 for a nice 2,203% gain. As per your recommendation, as GMCR went above $30 I sold the remaining 50 Puts at $5.50 for a slightly less 2,037% gain.
    On average that one trade netted me a 2,120% gain, entirely based on YOUR recommendation (and a little bit of luck). To put this in real terms, I risked $2,700 on Wednesday and pocketed $54,550 just 24 hours later.
    So uhh, let's do that again real soon!!
    Feel free to use my name. The tax guys have me on speed-dial already anyway. Dennis

    Rick:
    That was awesome on your GMCR pick, I know how risky it can been holding into earnings but you pulled it off. 
    I just started my autotrading with you today and am in on your QQQ play. I look forward this service. 
    I have a busy career and I have tried to follow and trade throughout the day and found it too hard. I hope you continue to have a great year, I plan to go along for the ride. I am starting slow but will pile more in once I have secured some profits. 
    Keep up the good work your trading has been spot on. I am sure you paid your dues to get this point in your career. Anthony

    Rick:

    Great call on GMCR!  I have been trading for about 15 years actively.  This may be the best trade I ever made.  Got in on Monday, April 30 and the stock was up from when you recommended it.  It went up further after I got in.  Here are the facts:
    Monday, April 30th: Bought 15 June 37's at $1.25= $1900 approx
    Thursday, May 3rd: Sold 15 June 37's at $9.30=$13,950
    Gain for the week: $12,050.
    I understand you will not get them all right.  It’s important to ride those winners and as you could tell from my selling price, I sold when the stock went to $28.10, so left a little on the table.  Who can complain.
    Keep the suggestions coming, looking for another jump on your FSLR, one that I have been riding very hard.
    Best regards, Bob
