    Cripple Stock Club

    Hey guys, any interest in yapping about stocks? Love to gamble the market? Let's do it!

    What are your current holdings? Favorite plays? (long or short)

    I'll start with my current list

    ATI calls
    TIE calls
    BA calls
    USG puts
    Day to day momo calls or puts on QQQQ as the willingness to play market moves suits me.

    (I'm primarily an option trader, so next week these might change )

    Yep, Im not too happy with them because they are just penny stocks. AXYX, which is a Pharm. and its down 50% since purchase. LU, which i think everybody has a few hund shares. CHTR, which I bought for 98 cents a share and hold the most of, hoping because its primary share holder is Paul Allen it will go up eventually. VTSS, a semiconductor company which is down about 40% since i bought as well. Plus a few other penny stocks. I am pretty much long on all of them. I made some good money on LU and CHTR a few years back. I am looking at SDRC.PK because its a gold mining outfit in Montana and it is at an all time low right now. I got some inside info that it should be at 3.00 in about 3 months. Right now its sitting at .078, sooo tempting to put a couple grand into it.

    I have somewhere in the neighborhood of 700 shares of Anheuser Busch stock. Have had it since I was an employee of Sea World and enrolled in my 401K. It's a nice secure stock to own, I can't actually do much with it if I wanted to(which I have no desire to anyway) w/out penalties b/c of the 401K status. Being that it's a 401K and the way it's set up w/A/B my quantity of stock continues to grow as it sits there. No complaints from me....

    Other than that, I don't have any stocks....but by golly I love my BUD stock

    Not a Player

    I do not "play" the stock market, but I certainly invest in stocks. All our holdings are long, and I recently went to a large postion of cash, just before the market drop--cashed in about a third of our holding when the maraket was above 11,000. We like energy stocks, older, solid producers such as BP, Chevron-texaco, Chesapeake Energy, Exxon, Global Santa Fe, NSTAR, Nabors, Remington (now Helix). Plus Archer Daniels as an ethanol producer. Also have General Dynamics, Manulife, PHH, Verizon, Wrigley and some mutuals. Will begin buying again soon. Many of my stocks have been held for ten to twelve years. I'm an investor, not a gambler.

    Stocks always get me excited. It got crazy for me. I got obsessive about investing. It was nuts! Very profitable but not healthy. Now, for all practicle purposes, I've retired from trading. Life is fantastic! No stress. I hold a substantial position in WRES for growth, among others for income. I had many, many shs of CELG held from '97-'98 then split 3for1 then split 2for1. I used to trade the heck out of it long and short. It was soooo volatile. Like takin' candy from a baby. CELG was very good for me.
    I'm 47. I've started spending some of the money I've made.
    I still dabble writing calls occasionally on my larger holdings and I trade a few HIGH-risk pennies to build "free" long positions. Mostly otc. My favorite, formerly GTEL on the otcbb is now on AMEX as...
    GTE!

    OK, Cripple Stock Club? Let's each pick a stock, priced as of "July 4th" 2006. I pick GTE with awesome potential @ 1.21 today. When it moves... IT MOVES. We'll check prices on 12/31/2006.

    End of year, that takes some thought...but I will stick with my favorite money maker...TIE. Yeah, it went parabolic not too long ago, but at today's price it is fairly ok valued considering growth. That and the CEO and his holding companies have an insatiable appetite to buy TIE stock, something is up there. I like it too for the volitility, rode it up, and rode it down. TIE bought me a car too, its that good . I show todays close at $34.69. Holdings are a bunch of far out calls (I'm probably a little early to go in, things might be flat or down for a bit, but I am bullish. If bear market comes in, well, ya win some, ya lose some)

    I'm not really an 'investor', I'm just along for the ride. If I invested in something I would do real estate or something tangible.

    Ok market fans...hot tip time.

    As I posted before, I have USG puts. If you guys have been following USG and their issuing of rights to purchase additional USG shares at $40 for stockholders of record at the end of June, you will see there is some money to be made here. What all this rights offering mumbo jumbo with Bershire Hathaway backing the purchase of all the rights is simply a secondary offering. A doozie of a secondary offering I might add. This will double the amount of outstanding shares of USG and that extra amount of the outstanding shares are valued at $40! If you guys have been watching the price action this week, you will see there is some major tanking going on. As of todays close, USG is at $50.63, the rights (USGRT) are at $10.80. Add them together for an equivalent post rights excersize value of $61.43 at today's close. A wee bit higher than those $40.00 shares starting to flood the market, eh? Basically a smoke and mirrors secondary offering, and I believe that this one still has some legs to the downside yet even after this week's tanking. Rumor has it shortable shares are hard to come by depending on your broker, so the best way to play this is with Puts (current rights adjusted options trade under -USJxx, they include the common and the rights). I'm nicely loaded up with July expirations, I wouldnt go further out than that as the premium is astronomical due to what is going on. Happy jackpot trading guys!
