Weekly Update Ended Sep 2, 2017

Hard to believe but we are already in the last trimester of the year. Time truly flies whether one is having fun OR not. LOL. August has come and gone and the indices eked out a tiny gain despite all the shouting from the roof tops by the pundits and gurus.

This weekend NK dropped another bomb, this time reportedly of the hydrogen kind. Global markets mostly took it in stride which is incredible as far as I am concerned. Japan and South Korean indices lost about 1% each in the past two days which is totally understandable given that they are directly in the line of fire, to use an unfortunate metaphor. The hits just keep coming with the devasting loss of life and property thanks to Harvey the weekend before and this weekend NK yet again.Markets have remained teflon all through despite the noisy shouting and the continued mess in Washington as well. 

Let's see what September brings us.

Our futures are indicating a weak open this morning.

The jaysomaney.com account ended up on the week and is now up 201% year-to-date versus 167% from a week ago and also167% two weeks ago. The liquidation value as of this past Friday is now at $809,074 with $475,859 of that in cash, down slightly from the prior week as I initiated a new position and made an add in another.  In the prior week ago period, we were up 167% YTD, and liquidation value from the closing levels a week ago was at $716,630 just as a point of easy reference for all of you.

The markets were slightly higher (by a hair) last week and have been pretty much moribund for the last few weeks now. So, nothing much happened last week except for a lot more noise on the usual fronts-Washington and North Korea. Most of last week was all about Harvey and its aftermath in South Texas and the continued noise from our politicians.

The following is a repeat for emphasis.

I am not a big believer in the seasonality theory because that is just more Wall Street nonsense to get folks to churn their accounts. Think about that, if all of us sell every May and then buy back in mid to late fall..that's a massive windfall for WS without even having to do any work. It's nonsense put together and parroted by the swamis, pundits, gurus and bobble heads on TV. Simple as that.

On the flip side, there are not many catalysts for the next several weeks, so there is no hurry until I see an opportunity. Opportunity does not wait on seasons by the way.

If we were to find a catalyst (maybe some additional clarity on the tax situation being talked about in Washington or NK calming down, we could see a nice rally over the next few weeks or more. 

Please check your inboxes for a list of trades made last week.

Here we go with the usual part of the update:

Please keep your positions in size with your account size (value). Most importantly please remember that I am running a marathon here and not a sprint. I am in no hurry whatsoever for any position and thus will not enter a position unless I feel the risk/reward is stacked in my favor. Yes, I will occasionally have positions work against me despite the risk/reward prior to the trade but if I was batting a thousand, none of us would be in our little room. We would all be on our own private islands. Even more important for all of us to remember that trades and opportunities will come no matter what the markets are doing. 

Please, please don't roll the dice and don't bet on anyone single position without keeping the size relative to your overall account. I promise you even 1 or 2 call options at a time add up to spectacular returns over time. 

There is nothing worse than seeing someone (new or experienced) blow up his/her own account by going "all in", long or short.  Please avoid those sort of "investments" As my dad used to tell me all the time, "Rome wasn't built in a day".

Remember together we will all get there, wherever that may be for each of us individually.

Not a sprint but a marathon. (This is the most important takeaway for all of us) Will always hold true as far as I am concerned no matter what anyone else thinks on the outside. 

THIS NEXT SECTION IS NEW FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO WISH TO HEDGE YOUR PORTFOLIO-- I WILL MORE THAN LIKELY ALSO LEAVE THIS SECTION IN PERMANENTLY.

Use the same hedges as last week as these hedges should provide you the most bang for your money all things being equal. Buy any one or buy them all depending on the size of your account and the extent you wish to hedge your account(s).
Go Long SQQQ or buy SQQQ Calls (SQQQ is proshares ultrashort QQQ-leveraged 3x)
Buy QQQ Puts
Buy Puts on any of the FANG names (most volatile) or short the names individually if you prefer
Go long SDS or buy SDS Calls (SDS are the proshares ultrashort S&P500--leveraged 3x

PLEASE NOTE THESE HEDGES ARE JUST MY SUGGESTIONS. AS SUBSCRIBERS VERY WELL KNOW, FOR ME, CASH IS (and has always been) THE BEST HEDGE. IF NOT CASH, IT'S EQUITY SINCE THAT CAN BE CONVERTED TO CASH IN SECONDS.

We have Fedheads on full parade this week:

Weekly Update Ended August 26, 2017

Another week and not much positive happened either in the markets themselves, politically (no chance of that given the turmoil in Washington) or from the ballyhooed Jackson Hole meeting of the central bankers of the world. MOMO and Broadcom both reported numbers last week and both shares were hit post their respective ER's. 

This weekend we had Harvey wreak havoc in South Texas and I hope each and every one of you (if living in the affected areas) was available to avert any damage. 

Global markets are mixed this morning despite the fact that the Shanghai Comp closed at a 19 month high overnight. Asian markets were flattish to higher but across the pond, the CAC and DAX are slightly lower with the FTSE closed for a local long weekend holiday.

Lots of weekend news and chatter in our little room. No major UGs and DGs to write about yet but I am sure we will have a few biggies this week, if not this morning itself.

The jaysomaney.com account ended up flat on the week (which was a feat in itself) 167% year-to-date versus 167% from a week ago and 180% two weeks ago. The liquidation value as of this past Friday is now at $716,630 with $499,959 of that in cash, down slightly from the prior week as I initiated a new position and made an add in another.  In the prior week ago period, we were up 167% YTD, and liquidation value from the closing levels a week ago was at $715,644 just as a point of easy reference for all of you. The markets were also down for the third week in a row and have been pretty much moribund for the last few weeks now. So, nothing much happened last week except for a lot more noise on the usual fronts-Washington and North Korea. Jackson Hole was a dud despite the media braying breathlessly all week about it.

I am not a big believer in the seasonality theory because that is just more Wall Street nonsense to get folks to churn their accounts. Think about that, if all of us sell every May and then buy back in mid to late fall..that's a massive windfall for WS without even having to do any work.

Weekly Update Ended August 19, 2017

Another week went by with a mostly negative tone given the continued tensions with North Korea, the massive upheaval in Washington, and the end of ER season, although we continue to have a few stragglers and off-quarter companies still to report.

This week we will hear from MOMO tomorrow and Broadcom on Thursday.

We also have the global central bankers meeting in Jackson Hole starting this Thursday so that could prove to be illuminating.

Global markets are mostly mixed as similar worries that are plaguing our markets have spread overseas while our futures keep flitting between the positive and negative. 

Early morning and over-the-weekend UGs and DGs are up in our little room for those that want to check it out.

The jaysomaney.com account ended up 167% year-to-date versus 180% from a week ago and 197% two weeks ago. The liquidation value as of this past Friday is now at $715,644 with $513,134 of that in cash, up from the prior week as I have been a net seller for weeks now. In the prior week ago period, we were up 180% YTD, and liquidation value from the closing levels a week ago was at $752,734 just as a point of easy reference for all of you. The markets were also down for the second week in a row and have been pretty much moribund for the last few weeks now. So, we had a bit of a give back in terms of performance last week, thanks to the NK situation and the massive mess in Washington.

I am not a big believer in the seasonality theory because that is just more Wall Street nonsense to get folks to churn their accounts. Think about that, if all of us sell every May and then buy back in mid to late fall..that's a massive windfall for WS without even having to do any work.

Weekly Update Ended August 12, 2017

Last week was headed for a terrific week in techland until we had the North Korea situation blow up in Chuckles face on Thursday. Earnings season is mostly done with, with a few stragglers and off-quarter companies still to report.

We will be hearing from the like of The Kid (CSCO) and Whitman's ATM machines, HPQ, HPE, MOMO and Jack (BABA) over the next couple of weeks.

Global markets are mostly higher this morning and our futures are also indicating a higher open for us albeit off the morning highs.

UGs and DGs from overnight and early this morning are available in our little chat room for those of you who would like to check them out. 

The jaysomaney.com account ended up 180% year-to-date versus 197% from a week ago and 209% two weeks ago. The liquidation value as of this past Friday is now at $752,734 with $490,459 of that in cash. In the prior week ago period, we were up 197% YTD, and liquidation value from the closing levels a week ago was at $796,009 just as a point of easy reference for all of you. So, we had a bit of a give back in terms of performance last week, thanks to the NK situation but on the other hand, I also finally put some cash to use.

Weekly Update Ended August 5, 2017

Last week was mostly a mixed bag in techland with major earnings mostly out of the way. However, we still have a few companies reporting this week starting with Twilio tonight after the closing bell. Wednesday we will hear from Netease followed by Nvidia on Thursday, both after the closing bell. In the case of Netease, well after the closing bell.  

We managed to get through last week without a staged event (always on the downside) by Wall Street but it was still a week of one-step forward and one and a half back. Something that will be even more pronounced going forward given the fact that our indices keep scaling new highs and the sheer number of people on both sides of the trade (good guys and darksiders) angry that the markets keep running away from them.

Last week, we had a similar situation in AAOI like we did in Amazon and Google the week before, where I sold before the earnings print which turned out to be the spot on decision. Investing is not just about finding the winners but is also about avoiding the pitfalls. It's all good.

Overnight, Asian markets mostly higher with Shanghai up 0.53%, HK up 0.46%, Nikkei higher by 0.52%, Taiwan up 0.69% while Bombay was down 0.16%. On the flip side and across the pond markets are more sedate as our futures vacillate around the flattish levels.

Overnight upgrades and downgrades and news from over the weekend are already up in our little room. 

The jaysomaney.com account ended up 197% year-to-date versus 207% from a week ago and 175% two weeks ago. The liquidation value as of this past Friday is now at $796,009 with $536,644 of that in cash. In the prior week ago period, we were up 207% YTD, and liquidation value from the closing levels a week ago was at $823,934 just as a point of easy reference for all of you. 

As a few of you have pointed out in the past and continue to do so, we are very cash heavy in the account and that is not the optimal situation however I find that with high cash levels, it helps me stay calm when Wall Street decides to stage one of their "generate commish at all costs" events. I do realize that earning 1%/year is not optimal but neither is the alternative as far as I am concerned, especially in options trading. 

I am more than happy to buy stock if you all are okay with that. (Email me jay@jaysomaney.com)

Incidentally, I just received one response last week to the request about buying stock. Maybe, this week, it will be more.

Please check your inboxes for a list of trades from last week.

So for instance, for those of you that paid their monthly subscription on July 21, 2017, the new rate for you will not take effect until August 21, 2017. For those of you that had their subscription renew on July 22, 2017, you are merely required to hit the link on jaysomaney.com and you will be redirected to Paypal where you just have to select the new payment, $99 or $109 (includes text/sms alerts).


Simple as that.


Until next week, may the trading Goddesses/Gods smile on all your trades/dice rolls/coin tosses.


Be safe, 

Jay
