Will be going over monthly setups next week since July is ending.

Currently long BID, DHR, VIX, and DF as a spec play.

Looking at LVS and BYI for long term plays.

Faggy337 apparently doesn't know how to read. No wonder he doesn't invest.

INVN had some recent bullish options activity. I remember posting about it on my site a couple of days ago I think. I'll post it when I get back home.

Was down yesterday because of some insider sales I believe. They have just been rumored to be a supplier for Apple's watch whenever it comes out.

Probably because markets were down too, techs especially got crushed on AMZN's earnings.

On 7/23 a trader rolled up 2,800 September 20x calls to 28x calls at 2.00 for a 3.85 credit. Taking some profits so not as bullish, but still letting quite a bit ride.

Looks like it has a little more downside imo to $33.50 - $33.75 next week but should bounce there.

LVS at major long term support here. $71 a key area, probably will test that area next month and I'll look to go long around there. It can take off from there into the end of the year with strong earnings as the most likely catalyst.

Bullish long term positioning in 2016 options pricing for a move into triple digits. I think we can see $90's by the end of the year. I'll look at a January or March '15 spread soon.

How long have you been in it?

Hope you're taking advantage of the stock and writing calls against it for extra money.

Bought some on the 9th of this month for $22.80 per. I'll have to look up what option level I am with Vanguard. I use them cause I get 30 free trades a year and its zero commission on their low fee ETF's and mutual funds. I don't feel my option knowledge is good enough that I would feel comfortable. I do some research here and there but haven't fully gotten into it. I follow what you post on twitter and on here though.

DVN another great chart here with a clean breakout at the beginning of the year. Played it then but had short term options, missed a lot of the run.

Throwback to horizontal s/r this month and is heading higher again. Still in a clear uptrend. Heading towards $90 to test the 2011 highs imo.

Already in this one with September calls. No spread, but may turn it into one later on if it does breakout to lock in profits on the way up.

Oh you haven't been in too long then. That's a nice gain on common for just a couple of weeks

Vanguard gives 30 free trades a year .. I'm guessing you have to use the free trades within a certain time period though?

Covered call writing is actually pretty simple and straightforward. Just got one of my members into it since he mostly does long term stock plays. If it's a long term hold for you then you should definitely look into it. It's essentially risk free money since you own the underlying and it's covered.

Sort of a correction, its 25 free trades. Yeah, its for the year. It's people who qualify for the "Flagship" accounts($1m in invested a*sets). For some reason they still have me listed as "Flagship" even though I'm not remotely close to that. I think its because my grandpa setup UGMA's for all my cousins and my self for college money when we were born and prolly all the a*sets at some time added up to that. I'm not complaining.
