FB getting killed. 115 ah
Expected move was $6, wanted to sell strangle and glad I didn't. Premium was evaporating faster then I could adjust the price.
Any idea why ? Good earnings (beat both top and bottom). Perharps I missed something.
As many a time all about the fwd guidance. FB said slower ad revenue growth.

Might be good time this week to start [don't buy all at once] positions in FB and GOOGL and AAPL.

Gonna be interesting to see what SBUX says about the consumer tomorrow AH.

Of course I should have waited to sell TVIX but wanted to lock in profit after recent spike up.

Then of course there's that little election event next week!!

Anyone care to comment on the underlying 'soundness' of AD.TO? Seems something like Lending Loop, but run by theoretical experts rather than numpties like me.
Your understanding is close. They enter into a preferred share agreement at 15%. What kind of company would take a loan at 15% right now? Companies that are too risky to borrow from banks, of course.

- They have a couple of bad investments and one of them is a writedown.
- Their cash flow can barely cover the dividend payments.
- They also cannot replace the good partners who now left with new ones.

If a stock beats and still drops then it probably guided down.

I do not understand this market. I looked into my portfolio today and discovered that Linamar beat its earning forecast in every way and then it's stock price crashed. Gildan Activewear missed and its stock price is surging. I'm not exactly unhappy, as I own both, but I think I kind of feel lie this: Neutral Face

With respect to LNR, I feel the same way!

I was reading their Q3 earnings report and the transcript for their conference call and they've had 21 quarters of double digit earnings growth, yet the stock trades at a P/E just shy of 7. I think some of the drop in share price was due to the soft guidance moving forward (earnings dropping to high single digits) and overall negative sentiment with the automakers. Whenever that sentiment shifts LNR should sky rocket.

UVXY+NUGT or Canadian equivs depending on fund allocation.
Doing very well. I don't think it's been more obvious in recent history of the down turn the markets have and will take.

Call me a conspiracy theorist, but do not believe the polls, the corruption thats been coming out is absolutely epic and spreads through all departments, more than likely the fed, now if the fed is a Hillary puppet, as other parts of government seem to be, who knows what they have been pulling.

Even if Hillary wins the markets could still implode, with the other wild card that Trump supports may revolt against her, I've heard the quote, "No way I will have a Hillary president, civil war over nuclear war with russia."

Wow pharmaceuticals getting killed
Wow, I got out of ANIP a month ago when it was tracking around 67-68 for a nice gain...down 23.5% today even though earnings were good.
