I plan on writing some more puts today. If you don't mind me asking - what maturity are you looking at? And what price range? I've already written some Jan/14 puts.

I am looking at Philippine LD Telecom (PHI). I like that it is cheap on a cash flow basis, but I don't believe the firm has that great of a reputation.
My Portfolio: AMZN, PYPL

Feat warriors, thanks for sharing. Just curious, what do you see today that you didn't see a month ago regarding bac or did you just have some new cash come in and not able to buy 2 weeks ago?

There are many times where I can't buy certain companies due to work restrictions. Then I would have to wait until the company is off the restricted list. The restriction can last a day or weeks... It really kills the timing of my purchases sometimes because I can't take advantage of the price volatility.  It is also a reason why I can't comment much on many topics especially with regards to specific companies. Our compliance department is extremely strict (for good reasons).


With that said couple of reasons: ERICOPOLY's enligtening comments on BAC thread, the JPM settlement, and some cash came in.

Sounds good.
I'm still greater than 100 per cent notional in taxable account but only about 10 percent in Roth.
The stock could continue to climb but I'm hoping the market starts to discount in the taper in jan or feb.
We saw 6 percent pull back in general market starting in late may of this year on news of a taper.
I think we will see at least 6 percent this time.
The 100k question is if they will actually taper in march.
We'll see.
