I want to demonstrate some simple math for you cynics out there–because you’re stupid.
Stock A is a 7% position and it’s down 11.5%.
Stock B is a 20% position and it’s up 2%.
Stock C is a 13% position and it’s up 2.2%.
Stock D is a 15% position and it’s up 2%.
Just out of those 4 stocks, knowing the weighting a daily change, what is the net result?
That’s called “diversification” gentlemen. It enables one to withstand outlier events without blowing up.
I’m eying coal. The sector is selling off for two consecutive days, likely due to bad earnings at CLF. Remember, the coal sector is impaired. You don’t buy the sector for its fundamentals. It is a play on the future, which makes it the perfect Pro-Romney election day pick. I intend to buy ANR and JRCC, ahead of the elections and sell after Romney is declared King.

Today is a silver day, not a coal day.
Hi Ho, Silver.
A pimp has gotta have hoes…
Your 2012 predictions say Obama wins a 2nd term.
Things CHANGE. Obama has been shooting himself in the foot, seemingly doing everything he can not to ge re-elected.
It’s nice to see coal coming in, after that run.
To be specific …”Obama will in fact WIN a 2nd term.”
You also said BAC will file for bankruptcy
You might be correct there as well..
If you take predictions seriously, you are a bird brain.
my calculator broke! and i dropped out in the 3rd grade??
Romney will not win. We all know that.
You mean like 4 longs and 4 shorts.
Have you converted?
Should I call Keith
If the O wins, the mkt tanks. If Romney wins, the Clam gets shucked, the mkt tanks.
I wonder what a Rosanne Barr v. Michelle Obama debate would be like?
(That’s a bizarre comment)
Romney will not win Fly.
He doesn’t have the superior blue blood content.
Obama will die in office, 2nd term.
The Druids will see to it.
They will see to it that the FBI hauls you in.
not sure about Romney king , mr fly
we have to see continuous derail throughout 6 nov then we’ll have romney king
How about buying KOL rather than individual name. Are you buying JRCC and ANR through options,
How about selling 8.5 option and buying 2x 9.0 option for 7 cents.
So you sell 8.5 and buy twice 9.0 strike.
off top of head
The Fly’s about even on the 55% (A-D).

Attention asshats of the interwebs (those thinking O’bammy wins reelection):
Ban yourself now (yes Yogi) lest you need immediate, emergency dental attention come the evening of Nov 6th, due to excessive teeth gnashing in response to my schadenfreude-laden posts.
Betting on a Romney win is a gamble. Betting on a court case outcome is a gamble as well. Might as well bet on corporate earnings announcements. It’s quicker and more opportunities.
During the first debate 0bama’s eyes glazed over, “This can’t be happening” he thought. “A white man telling me I’m full of shit, to my face, in front if 70M people?”
Since then he has lost his cool and women do not like that, and as a result he lost the important white mom vote.
Coal has been positively correlated to Romney gains in the polls and vice versa for Obama. Take an average of the current swing state predictions, then look at the day’s change in coal prices to see whether momentum is gaining or slowing. Hint: Today it’s slowing.
Syria has a Weekend Ceasefire..yeah!!
It will not likely hold.
I’m still getting negative pi. anybody else?
Panic is coming, I can smell it. Short lived, maybe only a capitulation of this normal correction.
It feels like it because winners are being smoked;
But then when I start hearing myself say “panic” and start getting index put quotes, it usually means the bounce is at the door.
then we panic UP!
$SHW Sherwin Williams is down -8
The housing bull is dead.
Republicans LOVE bad news on the American economy, jobs, and terrorist attacks.
Do you guys work for Alqeda?
wow this is a statement of ignorance in more ways than one.
At least spell Al Qaeda correctly.
To be fair, in order to spell it correctly, you would need to know Arabic.
Picked up some MSFT today.
They launced Windows 8 and Surface. Stock was beaten down after earnings miss. They stand to gain gain momentum going into next quarter with new products.
Mr soft blows. And will continue to blow until they get rid of Balmer.
He seems a little pumped!
$PPC; corn/soy prices to subside, chicken prices high (see BWLD).
We need the Bernank to say “I’m gonna get them bitches”.
CABella’s is my FFIV. My mustache has been punched off!
Hey fly, keep these twitter polls going and diversify the questions. It’s really great seeing the ibankcoin users perceptions on various topics. Nice to have more interactivity amongst users.
Especially when you only buy Stock B and Stock D.
There’s no love for DECK going into earnings.
Fly’s bet on Romney is starting to look a lot like his bet on DECK. It seemed like a good idea at the time . . .
