Stock and Option Plays for December 8, 2014

For the stock picks and option strategies for December 8, 2014, we will focus on stocks of AAPL, AMZN, BABA, MSFT, EBAY, TGT, and SBUX.

For options strategies, the daily price fluctuations of AAPL, AMZN, and BABA are positive for a straddle strategy.  In my opinion on these, the next months will bring a wide change in stock price.  I am in a position to say that I like these stocks' chances of going up, and also for a strong change in price even if they were to go down.  For that matter, a hedged option strategy to take advantage of price changes is geared toward these three stocks.  In my opinion, a straddle is good here.

For MSFT, EBAY, TGT, and SBUX, I like being long in these and also purchasing calls is another way to profit from them by putting up less money if you believe they will rise in share price.

Please note, this is only my opinion and is not investment advice.  I am long AAPL, AMZN, BABA, EBAY, TGT, and SBUX.

  1. Your blog is fairly worth enough for me personally. In my opinion in the event that all webmasters and writers made good content while you did, the internet is going to be much more useful than in the past…This is an superb resource for those who wish to really understand how to trade choicesmore complex option jobs and trade management. He or she explains the theory as well as mathematics very well.
