Received TD Ameritrade email as well.  October 3 commission free online equity, ETF and option trades.  They also lowered their option contract fees from .75 to $0.65.  Very nice.

Need Fidelity to match, but with the market the past couple days, not sure I'm doing much selling.

etrade

Was able to finally unload my TVIX (long) today for a $1500 profit.

Took a small short position as well .... anticipating a bounce in the market. 

Fun stuff and it's certainly not hurting my portfolio gains.

Still haven't got the minerals to play for big money tho.

Yup. Short 200 @ $16.80

Tiny position but having fun with it ... until it burns me.

Might take another nibble tomorrow depending on action.

Why not just buy SVXY or ZIV?

Covered just now @ $12.80

... so $800 profit (less fees)

Not awful for one week and such a small risk.

I really need to grow a pair and go 10x this.

Boom or bust with this one:  CYDY.  Biotech drug maker awaiting FDA approval for new HIV drug among other things.  Here's an article from Seeking Alpha that came out last month.

FYI:  Stocks that trade @ ~$0.34 are more likely to go to $0 than $1.  I think this will be an exception.

With 0 commissions at most places now it becomes pretty easy to justify these small bets.  I'm in for $5!

Why not ask them to send you the physical certificates?  Would be pretty lol to see the response.

My Merrill account wouldn’t let me buy any of this stock. Too junky I guess. Tried to buy it.

Shoot the lock off your wallet and open an Ameritrade account.  Or are you too afraid to win?

You need to ask them to send you all the forms to fill out saying you are a ####### and want to buy penny stocks.

It is ridiculously coincidental that the CEOs of both NKE and UA announced today that they are stepping down and moving to exec. chairman roles.
Top of the sector? I don't own either.

Buying some AMZN today as I expect a good earnings report tomorrow.

Hopeful. Most predictions I’ve read sound down, but the previous two were super positive prediction and the stock went off a small cliff so maybe it’ll flip. Lol

Stock has been trading down into earnings so I am betting the news is baked in.  We shall see.  Hoping to see it back above $1800 by end of week.

Headline right now “Microsoft earnings trounce expectations and quarterly profit tops 10 billion” 

 

and then after hours Microsoft Corp. -0.46%
 

 

I’ll never truly understand this

Happens all the time. I’m just glad they’re not selling the news even harder. I love $MSFT, just keep adding every year.

That quarter ran Jul 1 - Sept 30, yes?

Actually more impressive, if so. Didn't the tax credit cut in half 6/30? Would think some draw-forward into Q2 from that.

But the rumor, sell the news.  Obviously some expected even better earnings.

Well, MSFT is up 2% today.  A bunch of firms raised their price targets.

Pretty sure it's over. Will never sniff $1700 again. Sorry for all your crushing losses.

This is my seemingly annual post to come in here and talk about what a studly beast CDW is. Reported this morning, beat and raised. In the two years since I first asked about them here, they've become my second biggest holding (and that's only because Disney went nuts in the last couple weeks.) And I don't really see them slowing down and it feels like nobody is really paying attention yet.

On a broader note, and it's one data point, but it's certainly not a BAD sign that they raised their guidance since it most likely means businesses are spending money upgrading their tech.

They’ve since been added to the S&P 500 which caused another spike. They reported this morning: Beat on top and bottom, raised the dividend 28.8%.

Ask Furley.  I think he has about an 80% loss rate.  He'll be able to fill you in how this one works.
