Calls Active On Reports Yahoo! May Be In Talks To Sell Stake In Alibaba

 

Today’s tickers: YHOO, MSI & AZN

YHOO - Yahoo!, Inc. – Shares in Yahoo!, Inc. are up better than 5.0% this morning, though not on the back of Facebook’s highly anticipated IPO. YHOO’s shares rose as much as 6.3% to $15.87, the highest since Valentine’s Day, on reports the company is in talks to potentially sell its stake in Chinese Internet Company, Alibaba Group Holding Ltd., for an estimated $7 billion. Options traders positioning for shares to continue to rise are targeting weekly call options, perhaps on speculation a deal could be announced as early as next week. Call buyers snapped up more than 3,100 lots at the May 25 ’12 $16 strike for an average premium of $0.21 apiece and another 420 contracts at the higher $17 strike at an average premium of $0.07 each. Traders long the $16 and $17 weeklies may profit at expiration next Friday if shares in YHOO rally another 2.1% and 7.6% to top average breakeven prices of $16.21 and $17.07, respectively. Bullish action spread to the June expiry calls as well, with more than 8,000 of the $16 strike contracts purchased for an average premium of $0.52 each. The value of the call options could certainly lose their value, however, should talks fizzle out and shares surrender the day’s gains.

MSI - Motorola Solutions, Inc. – No sign of May flowers for investors in Motorola Solutions, Inc., with shares in the provider of data communications and telecommunications equipment down roughly 9.0% since the start of the month. A burst of put buying on MSI this morning suggests some traders expect the price of the underlying shares to continue to slide in the near term. Shares in Motorola Solutions are currently down 0.85% at $47.47 as of 12:00 p.m. in New York. Put buyers looked to the June $47 strike, picking up around 1,200 lots at an average premium of $1.41 apiece, and more than 3,200 put options at the…

Will Bitcoin Crash the Stock Market?

 

Will Bitcoin Crash the Stock Market?

Courtesy of 

When the S&P 500 fell in March last year, it brought Bitcoin down with it. So if stocks can bring down Bitcoin, it’s reasonable to ask if Bitcoin can bring down stocks.*

If you thought the Bitcoin run-up to 60k was emblematic of investor** euphoria, then you probably wondered what would happen if it were to come crashing down. Would that take other high-flying areas of the market down with it?

It might be premature, but as of now, the answer is no.

Crude Oil Cleared For Blast Off On This Dual Breakout?

Courtesy of Chris Kimble

Is Crude Oil about to blast off and hit much higher prices? It might be worth being aware of what could be taking place this month in this important commodity!

Crude Oil has created lower highs over the past 13-years, since peaking back in 2008, along line (1).

It created a “Double Top at (2), then it proceeded to decline more than 60% in four months.

The countertrend rally in Crude Oil has it attempting to break above its 13-year falling resistance as well as its double top at (3).

A successful breakout at (3) would suggest Crude Oil is about to mo...

Maintaining financial viability is a constant challenge for charities and nonprofit organizations.

The past year has underscored that challenge. The pandemic has not just affected investment returns – it’s also had serious implications for charitable activities and the ability to fundraise. For some organizations, it’s even raised doubts about whether they can continue to operate.

Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling System Suggests Market Peak May Be Near

Courtesy of Technical Traders

Our Adaptive Fibonacci Price Modeling system is suggesting a moderate price peak may be already setting up in the NASDAQ while the Dow Jones, S&P500, and Transportation Index continue to rally beyond the projected Fibonacci Price Expansion Levels.  This indicates that capital may be shifting away from the already lofty Technology sector and into Basic Materials, Financials, Energy, Consumer Staples, Utilities, as well as other sectors.

This type of a structural market shift indicates a move away from speculation and towards Blue Chip returns. It suggests traders and investors are expecting the US consumer to come back strong (or at least hold up the market at...

Texas, Florida, Arizona, Georgia – The Branch COVIDIANS Are Still Burning Down the House

The numbers of new cases in some of the hardest hit COVID19 states have started to plateau, or even decline, over the past few days. A few pundits have noted it and concluded that it was a hopeful sign. 

Is it real or is something else going on? Like a restriction in the numbers of tests, or simply the inability to test enough, or are some people simply giving up on getting tested? Because as we all know from our dear leader, the less testing, the less...
