Play it again, Nvidia–I’m putting my Nvidia puts back on in what I think is a bear market rally

Back on March 10 I bought Put Options, a bet that a stock will fall, on Nvidia (NVDA). I sold those Puts on March 17 for a gain of 106%. When I bought the Puts Nvidia traded at $261.08 a share. When I sold those Puts Nvidia traded at $219.7 a share. The shares have […]

Selling my Nvidia and Apple puts on talks of $850 billion stimulus package

Talks between Congress and the White House over a stimulus package of as much as $850 billion--designed to flood the economy with cash--have left stocks in a buoyant mood today. I think the package is likely to pass in the next week or so and that will restore even more short-term optimism to the financial […]

Adding Nvidia puts as “bear protection and profit play” to Volatility Portfolio

Earlier today I sold shares of Nvidia (NVDA) out of my Jubak Picks portfolio out of worry that we are looking at a further market dip that's likely to be especially hard on technology momentum stocks. Now I'm adding put options on Nvidia in my Volatility Portfolio (NVDA200918P00250000). The purpose is to give me more […]

Putting on those Apple puts in today’s rally

One reason I decided to wait yesterday to put on those Apple (AAPL) September 18 puts (AAPL200918P00250000) in my Volatility Portfolio until today was a hope that the extremely wide bid/ask spread of Monday would narrow so that the put options wouldn't be as expensive. Put options, since they provide downside protection or a bet on […]

Still selling Intrexon (now Precigen) even though the 293% gain yesterday wasn’t real

Frankly, my first reaction was to think it was a misprint, especially because while the ticker still read XON, the name of the attached stock had changed from Intrexon to Precigen. And it was. A misprint, that is. The print yesterday showed that the stock, a member of my Volatility Portfolio since November 9, 2018, had […]

Gold in ETFs nears record; what’s next for the yellow metal?

I think today is just a pause in the China-coronavirus selling; I’m selling JD.Com out of my Volatility Portfolio today on the bounce.

In my thinking we've still got a way to go before markets can breathe a true sigh of relief and put coronavirus fears behind them. And move onto worrying about other things like economic growth rates in China, rising debt levels, and earnings growth for U.S. stocks in the first and second quarters of 2020. […]

Selling emerging markets short ETF EUM out of my Volatility Portfolio

I don't know whether you've been able to hear it over all the other market noise--All the shouting on Brexit, for example--but there is a distinct and increasingly loud call from Wall Street that 2020 is the year to get back into emerging market assets. I don't happen to agree with a lot of the […]
