Remember that 635 point drop on the Dow last August? I'm expecting similar action this summer as well
I wouldn't expect all that because of the switch breakers that were put in place.

But yeah, as the VIX climbs our implied move will get larger and larger. So these triple digit losses/gains will become normal again.

IOC is a beast... and it's going higher. Not giving a fu*k what the markets do, crazy because it's an oil stock too.

Alerted the 72.5x June calls at 2.50. It's going back for $70's next week IMO.

Where'd everyone go?

I made about $600 today shorting GOOG. It really looks broken here. New leg is coming down IMO. Looking for $520 over the next few weeks.

Market isn't moving in a positive direction yet so most ppl in here haven't been playing the market lately most likely

I'm holding weekly $BIDU 115 puts. I think it goes all the way down to $100 if we sell off towards the end of this week.

I'm playing $GOOG going into next week.

I'm riding it up to $580ish. Going short after that. Let's see how the Greek elections pan out tomorrow.

07,

A friend of mine wants me to be her "broker". I don't mind doing this for her, as I am looking for steady income (other than what I'm making now). Whether she has high risk tolerance or not is unknown right now, but I was thinking about suggesting high dividend yield companies to her. Also stocks that have low beta, that way if/when markets to take a hit, she's getting some return on her investments.

What do you think? Ill welcome any suggestions or advice you have.

I'm a.ssuming you mean financial advisor? If that's the case, unless you're licensed I wouldn't do it. Too many things could go wrong as far as legalities go.

Low risk, high yielding stocks...go for utilities. ED is one of my favorites. It already had a great run during the market weakness in the past month or so. 3.8% div and utilities are safety stocks.

Some other stocks that will hold up well through market weakness are KO, PEP, DPS all with solid divs around 3%. Also tobacco stocks PM, LO, MO, RAI. Typically the whole consumer/non-cyclical sector is good with strong divs.

I like MCD a lot as well as most restaurant stocks. And MCD has had a nice pullback too. Only problem is it has a lot of exposure to Europe so it's not as safe.

Yes, financial advisor. I understand what you're saying, but she's a good friend (as if that means sh*t though ) but perhaps I can just give her some advice and what not. Thanks for the names though. I'm gonna start going long these companies myself when the opportunity presents itself.

Was wrong on the timing.

But IOC has had a huge run since last week. $57.50 to $70 now
