Booked the Hundred Dollar Roll — Onto the Next One

When I was an idiot stockbroker in NYC, we used to buy stocks on the cusp of breaking the magical $100 plane — because once it did it would almost immediately ‘roll’ to $106. It was dubbed the “Hundred Dollar Roll.”

I’d like to take credit for this vernacular on Wall Street, as I know I invented it. However, I am sure there are some of you fucktards out there who believe you did. Whatever the reason, this seems to work again and again.

Yesterday I bought GWRE under $100 and today I sold it for almost $103. It was, quite honestly, the easiest money I ever made — literally stealing money from men in wheeled chairs who are also sleeping.

Yesterday I had the idea of only buying stocks at $95+ heading towards $100 just to prove a point to you. Then I remembered I have nothing to prove and that would be unwise.

With the proceeds, I bought BE. That stock is poised and destined for higher prices. If it doesn’t I’ll retire from blogging and run throughout the green fields of Romania naked.

    I was the first one, I know of, to say the Russia election storyline was madeup/bs/prepackaged. By the last week of november, only days after it was being said (called it a psyop by mid-december ‘ 16)

    Oh… I thought the $100 roll was that stocks close to $100 would hit $100 before pulling back? I’m heavy SQ for this reason.

    I thought a $100 roll was a roll of hundred dollar bills. 🙂
