Why do you like Triumph Group Spekulatius? I see it is owned by David Tepper and Alex Roepers

It's one if the cheapest aerospace manufacturers/suppliers in the US stock market currently, if the earnings forecast from management comes through. This is not a sure thing, because they disappointed in 2013. I think the issues are fixable and if management isn't able to fix it, somebody else will do it for them.

Just bought YHOO Jan16 $50 Call. I think the risk reward is attractive for a small position. The implied volatility is not too high. Alibaba IPO is coming soon with a valuation of US$130 bil (rumored to be a low-ball offer). Yahoo will also sell a smaller than expected stake of Alibaba.

In a rising market, aren't you far better off concentrating in finding good value buys? I hate to see you blow up.
risk as little as possible until all the stars have aligned

Sold 2/3 of my Petsmart today because I went on a buying binge when it was in the mid 50's a few weeks ago.

Bought a partial position in TJX.

Hi PatientCheetah, I'm concerned that the market is overvalued.  My IBB puts (and my EEM and IWM puts) are a hedge against my longs, which I would rather not sell.  Also, as they're puts, I'm not concerned about blowing up (my LNKD, NFLX and TSLA shorts on the otherhand...).

Thanks,
Lance
