• Why do I suck at my job?

    I work hard but I make mistakes, stupid ones. I know I have to pay attention to detail but since my work is so fast paced it’s hard to overlook everything. How can I not suck?

  • If I own a stock but is going down and losing money, what option can I pick that is better to counter my loss, Selling calls or buying puts?

    Best answer: If you think implied volatility is too high it is usually better to sell options than buy them, so you would normally be considered the better choice. If you think implied volatility is too low it is usually better t buy options than sell them, so buying puts woul normally e considered the better choice. If you... show more
    Best answer: If you think implied volatility is too high it is usually better to sell options than buy them, so you would normally be considered the better choice. If you think implied volatility is too low it is usually better t buy options than sell them, so buying puts woul normally e considered the better choice. If you think implied volatility is about right, or if you do not know what implied volatility is, probably neith choice is particularly good.

    Neither choice counters the(unrealized loss you already have experienced. That is history and you cannot change history. The fact that the stock has already dropped means that you will probably pay more if you buy puts and receive less if you sell calls.

    If you buy puts, and the number you buy is equivalent to the number of shares you own, you are guaranteeing that the amount of money you get when you sell the shares will be less than the amount you would get if you simply sold the shares. However, it strictly limits the amount of money you can lose if the price of the stock drops prior to expiration of the options.

    Selling covered calls on the stock offers less protection if the price of the stock drops sharply, and limits the maximum amount you can make if the price of the stock goes up sharply prior to expiration of the options.

    I shoud mention that there are other strategies than simply selling calls or buying puts. You can do both to form a collar. There is even a "stock repair strategy." I am not a fan of the stock repair strategy, I will give you a link to it.

    http://www.cboe.com/strategies/advanced/...

    Finally, to directly answer the question you asked, since buying puts does nothing to counter the existing loss, selling calls is better to counter your current loss. That is not a recommendation just the answer to your question. My recommendation would be to look at the reasons you bought the stock. If the reasons still exist do nothing. If the reasons do not still exist, simply sell the stock.

  • Applied for a job and recieved a call 30mins later?

    Hi, I literally applied for a job about 30mins ago and recieved a missed call from the employer saying they would like to discuss my application further. What does the entail? What can I expect? I am a little nervous as I did not expect response that quickly and caught me off guard a little. Thank you.

  • Thoughts on putting in your 30 years working construction starting as a teenager and retiring by 50?

    I'm well aware the retirement age is creeping further and further up in age bc of the economy but I don't understand why people wouldn't start their career right outve high school and skip ahead instead of spending 5 years in school and possibly 1-2 years searching for a job post college... show more
    I'm well aware the retirement age is creeping further and further up in age bc of the economy but I don't understand why people wouldn't start their career right outve high school and skip ahead instead of spending 5 years in school and possibly 1-2 years searching for a job post college graduation. I'm still a teenager and settled in with my construction job already. I'm not blind to the reality that construction is going to shave off several years of my life and I'm going to have health problems when my 40's come but I'm not afraid of all of that because I know it will be short lived at the end of my career and I'll retire at 50 years olds. Anybody else think working hard labor starting as a teenager and putting in their 30 years is worth more than working 40 years at a desk job and graduating college with $25,000+ in debt

  • It is legal to buy a stock one day and sell it the next day and repeat?

    Like buy 2 shares of Apple today, sell it tomorrow, and then rebuy it the next day, and then sell it again?

    I was evicted from an apartment for non-payment of rent (lost my job and was not able to get another right away) almost 3 years ago and still owe them money for that eviction because I never had the extra money to put toward it. Luckily, I was able to move in with a friend and have been paying rent since then with him. I am now looking to get my own place but the place I want to move to will only accept me if I pay off what I owe to my previous landlord. How do I go about paying off my debt?

  • What happens if I get a deposit of over $30,000 into my bank account?

    In a few weeks I'm going to be getting over $30,000 from Kickstarter. Will my bank have to report me to the government or will I be alright because I'm not the one that deposited it?
