The idea here is to make money off of my losers when I really don't think they should not be losers. For instance, DWA has had a lot of really good movies come out this summer. However, that may have been their down fall as the crowds at the theaters have been really light. Most likely because the economy is still really weak and people are even more scared of spending money than I though they would be during the summer.
My other two positions, CIM and CPLP are also currently running at a negative. CIM has recently put in a new 52-week low of 3.18$, and closed this week at 3.25$. Approximately a 20% decline from the 4$ strike price of two of my previous option plays put me in. My orders to sell calls against my shares has yet to be executed so I currently have no hedge in place at the moment. I am curious to see how low it will go, and out of speculation created a put option at the 2.50$ strike price set to expire December 2011.
The situation with my shares of CPLP is relatively the same. CPLP has hit a new 52-week low of 7.86$, but has recovered some the value back since the beginning of last month. However, it is still far from the 10$ strike price of one of my previous option plays put me in. My order to sell a call against my shares has yet to be executed so I currently have no hedge in place at the moment, either.
That is my opinion, you can take it or leave it. Disclaimer: See bottom of page. http://investorsopinion.blogspot.com
