Thread: The REAL DARKOZ

  1. #101
    In general the reason a lot of stocks go up or down unexpectedly is due to options. For example Friday with AMZN the stock dropped a lot towards the end as people who really shouldn't even be involved with such an expensive stock had loaded up on calls the day before or that week and were now dumping as their gamble failed.

    And yes, 90% of options expire worthless.

    For years now I have stuck to the actual stock only both in long term and in investing. This way if things go against you, you have time on your side, versus with options time is decidedly against you as their value decays even if the stock moves in your favor, until that ultimate judgment day when if you're not sufficiently in the money you lose irrevocably.
    I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

    Even CNN admits there was nothing wrong with the trades. Many stock options never become valued enough to be exercised. In this case a huge jump in the price triggered it.

    Nothing to see here. Hopefully you address this at WoV.

    Yes, I am aware of that. I haven't mentioned Moderna for that reason in either of my threads there.

    I have been doing stocks for less than a month. Only purchased one thing. I am not the expert here in stocks.

    I purchased shares in one company because I believe in the medical science behind their product as a Coronavirus cure and felt it might be wise to have a stake in that.

    Probably more to the truth, with casinos closed I am not making money and am a bit bored.

    I figure if I am right I win two ways. One, my stock goes up in value. Two, if the drug works, it leads to Covid-19 fears going away and we can all get back to work

    And pointing out the obvious, if you’re wrong you lose in two ways: 1) your stock goes down, and 2) another drug fails so Covid-19 fears continue and get worse.

    Sorry I couldn’t resist. Lol

    Duly noted.

    The drug has had five years of testing (9 clinical trials on over 800 HIV patients) and has completed it's phase 3 testing for HIV.

    So I figure if it doesn't work for Covid-19 it may not be a true loss. The stock may actually prove valuable in other ways

    Iím sure you know but stocks like this are closer to gambling than actually investing. I say that because they can become next to worthless overnight or go up 100%. They are ok in a well diversified investment portfolio, but are not for money could canít afford to lose toward retirement.

    Either way, good luck with it and hopefully itís a Win/Win.
    Reopen America!

    Thank you. I appreciate it.

    When I told my daughter how much I was investing she just laughed and pointed out I have lost more on casino plays gone bad.

    If anyone can shrug a loss off it's me. I'm weathered to it now.
