Dona for Yo Bona

By -

What a terrific day! And, on days like this, when I suspect readers of my blog are making money 1001-begleft and right, I whip out the beggar’s bowl and ask you to show your appreciation for my hard work (Slope Plus folks have already done so, of course, by way of their subscription – – and you can join them, remember, with coupon code trickortreat and get a free month to try the service).

In any case, if you’d like to make a donation to the blog, now is your golden opportunity. This is pretty much my full-time job (for better or worse), and I’ll just push aside your local NPR station for a moment and tug on the same guilty strings that they do. Congratulations to Slopers for a great day, and I look forward to an awesome month of October. If you use Paypal, you can donate by clicking here. If you don’t have Paypal but still have the urge to donate – – donate $0 by trying out Slope Plus for a month!

Opening the Kimono

I keep a small options account for more speculative, devil-may-care trades. Someone asked me for an update on those positions. I’m going to be lazy (and a bit too T.M.I.) by just showing you my current P/L screen. I’ve only got one dud – Hershey – but I still think it’s going to work out just fine. These are all conservative plays (e.g. several months out, and all in the money).
