Isn't the idea, you release good earnings and the investors clamour to buy it? See what AAPL gets out of this announcement, then maybe later today oe in a few days, I'll sell some calls. Looks toppy to me. (JMHO)

That post is for education purposes. Call selling is an extremly risky action with possible unlimited losses. I have a high risk tollerance and will take my lumps when and if it happens. (JMHO)

Looks like 177 is about it. I'll take a look Monday.

Selling AAPL, calls worked like a charm. Is anybody dumb enough to think the premier FANG stock should have a negative sharp ratio. People don't understand how the risk free rates affect investments, high rates make treasurys quite attractive. The so called "growth" stocks better be able to show some growth.

Bulls are expecting the risk free rate to decline substantially in he second half due to 3 rate cuts, which aren't going to happen. Tech should be in for quite a haircut. (JMHO)
