BBRY up big again today... +6%
Yeah it has some momentum behind it. I wouldn't be surprised if it covers the gap from last June.

QLIK still going.. got to almost $29 today. Probably not going to play the earnings now. Missed my chance to buy at $25 - $26

Compare it to historical IV.. but when large buyers come in and the price on the calls spike without the stock it's because of IV.
So it wouldn't be smart to buy those high priced calls even if the stock moves $50? (usually happens on earnings, such as $GOOG)

I have an IV indicator on TOS. It shows the 52 high and low of a stocks IV. So I have an idea when IV is at the high or low end of the range. The percentile is what I'm confused about. If IV spikes, I would think the IV percentile would spike as well?

For earnings IV is higher, but it depends on how high they are. Last earnings options were expensive for GOOG as they always were, but the IV was pricing in a much smaller move than it actually had so the calls still ended up having huge gains.

Use an options calculator to get the percentage...

For example AAPL has earnings next week on Jan 27th so the IV is higher. The 600x calls expiring next week have an IV of almost 40% vs a historical average of about 27.5%.

Went long on MGA March 90x calls.. large bull spread just came in. Bullish chart too, showing a move up to around $91.50 over the next 1-2 weeks. At $87.40 now.
MGA took out last week's high.. new all time highs here. Should see $90's soon. Still holding my calls, going to look to exit before next week.

Anyone use any quantitative modeling for positions? I've been fooling around with a Value at Risk model and the backtests have been decent, so far.

Never have used any models. I'd like to get into VaR and stuff like that but not right now. Have you had any experience with other models?

I know we have some mutual fund guys in here. How about corporate debt? MBS?

Whats going on guys, just trying to get ideas from you all. Wondering if you all think ariad will jump back up again to its 52 week high and what you think about actc? thats a penny stock but ive been getting a lot of hype on it
 o7media said:
never can tell with biotechs. actc ..stay away from penny stocks. you're better off investing in ARIA long term and looking for positive drug data or a buyout.

Ariad +4.3% AH, Daily Mail reports that pharmas are circling
Jan 22 2014, 17:19

Ariad Pharmaceuticals (ARIA) shares spike 4.3% AH, after the Daily Mail floats a rumor that industry majors including Eli Lilly, GlaxoSmithKline, and Shire "have been sniffing around" ever since Iclusig was given the green light by the FDA.

The paper throws out the number $20/share as the price the potential suitors may be willing to pay.


.... just a rumor so far, but hope you grabbed some of ARIA if it's true

Added to my NRG call position a bit today. Going to add more on pullbacks until June or until a catalyst comes. Still has huge bullish activity on the options and low IV as well so could be big if there is a nice catalyst (merger, breakup, etc).

QLIK had a big pullback today on the market sell off. Looking to re enter calls again soon for earnings.
Covered my NRG March 31x calls at .20 and .25 from .32. Took a small profit. Shorted the June 32's now and turned my calendar spread into a vertical.

Hard to chase it this high .. what's your target? I'm seeing $187 - $188.

If I were holding it I'd sell it at $188. Although it wouldn't shock me if it flew past that and made a new all time high. CNBC has stopped gossiping about it so I like it a lot.

I've fooled around with some P/E projection models, but aside from DCF, not much. All the models do well as far as price targets, but in an up market, these forward projections are bound to be around the market price

Out MGA at 2.30 from 2.17. Small profit after fees. Might re enter on a pullback, held up very well with today's market sell off.
