  • bRobert: $FNSR SACIA $LITE $AAOI Fnsr strong bounce post earnings with some pin action. Acia AAOI at good buy points with stop. Lite +
  • antfarm: $AAOI My alert went off when this breached 60 on the open. So I decided to close this out instead of sitting on my hands today as Dan suggested. Closed the last June 16th 60 contract @ 1.20. Originally sold at 1.65. Buys lunch
  • Bridget: $AAOI bouncing off the 50dMA
  • bwcarnation1: $AAOI nice bounce off 50d on vol.
  • BocaRick: @bwcarnation1 $AAOI $LITE positive also
  • bwcarnation1: @BocaRick $AAOI $LITE and $FNSR
  • tjv821: $aaoi July 70 call and a $crm July 85 call and $true July 17.5 call and $v 90.0 call all have a 7/21 strike. Getting killed on the pull bk esp AAOI. Better to sell now while I still have some money left?? Even thought I have a month to go on rebound? Thoughts?? They only reason why I didn't sell when I was in the green that went red was the extra month

  • Bobbie: $AAOI, I sold my starter position on Monday. I am feeling some sellers remorse. I haven't seen $AAOI mentioned in the form in a few days. Is anyone buying this dip?
  • tjv821: $aaoi should have sold my July 70 calls yesterday
  • antfarm: $AAOI Bought to close half my June 16th 60 Puts @ .55. Originally sold for 1.65.
  • vscottg: $AAOI looking down more than the volatility I've been used to. Anyone aware of any news that is behind it? Not seeing anything from my feeds. Possibly an inverse reaction to $LITE ??
  • tjv821: $aaoi playing wack a mole today
  • stevef214: @Bridget $ICHR your inverted hammer remark made me evaluate holding $AAOI one more day yesterday. Ii was going to sell in the next couple of days because the position was June calls expiring the 16th but glad I sold yesterday.
  • Bridget: @stevef214 $ICHR $AAOI yes, I'm glad you sold June calls. I never like to hold front month long options with less than 2 weeks to go.
  • Vehid: @tjv821 $aaoi :( looks like going back to pappy
  • stevef214: @tjv821 $aaoi Yep, Long June calls and sold half on Friday. I was watching others yesterday morning and by the time I looked it had dropped considerably. On the midday turn back up I had a sell order in but it was not hit. Now I wish I had just sold ATM. Any bounce today and I am out but of course if I had stock I would be looking at it slightly differently.
  • stevef214: $AAOI Moving back up today after a shaky yesterday. Looking to close out my June $65 calls after selling half last Fri.
  • pookie: @tcw23 $LITE seems the optics related issues are "looking" up. $aaoi $oclr
  • geotheo: @stevef214 $AAOI Bullish engulfing candle right now over the last 2 days of trading.
  • stevef214: $AAOI STC Jun $65 calls last 1/2 position
  • genki: @DAN Some of the stocks I am long are quite volatile. E.g. $AAOI, $TCMD. They can go up a lot on a good day and can also wreck my portfolio in a selloff. I could imagine if there was a 5% correction, I would sustain a big hit. If I owned the safer stocks (e.g. MSFT?), the gain wouldn't be that good. So I am thinking if I can short some stocks at the same time I long, that will enhance my profit and provide some cushion to the downside. I have been taking some short positions occasionally. Mostly got out with just a little profit (after paying dividend:-))as I was not as confident when shorting. I took a short in MASI yesterday as it rose to resistance. I think learning some shorting skill will allow us to continue making money when the bull ends, someday.
  • tjv821: $aaoi making me nervous
  • Vehid: @tjv821 $aaoi The same here. Thinking of selling off
  • tigerjohn8: @tjv821 $aaoi likewise as of EOD I have a .09% gain to protect . STOP at 68.5 for lack of a better number
  • issues: @tigerjohn8 $aaoi you are good, unless it's a longer term hold. We are hoping for a drop to buy. Let 'er comin' down I'm waitin' for her!! Come to papa, come to papa>
  • Gary: ...
    $AAOI – still long? Is a 94 target realistic? I believe it is. Will take a while…but my target would even be $100. Optical networking industry is strong.
    $OHI – float is 29% short. 12 days to cover. But very choppy stock w/o trend ...
  • stevef214: $AAOI Gap up and hopefully breaking out to next level higher
  • Bridget: $AAOI is looking good.
  • stevef214: $AAOI Jun 16, $65 Calls out 1/2 taking profits on some with only 2 weeks to expiry
  • stevef214: $AAOI Form a near perfect pennant on 15 minute chart and now breaking down out of it
  • traderbren: $AAOI - holding up well after a pull back to the 8 ema.
  • Bismark07: $AAOI - 15 minute squeeze firing.High short interest also. FYI. Disclosure. . . I'm in with some 70 calls
  • stevef214: @Bismark07 $AAOI Wow its moving fast, I was watching earlier and now it eels like I missed todays move
  • Bridget: $AAOI like this momentum, added to my position on this bounce.
  • traderbren: $AAOI -- seeing buying pressure this AM. Long
  • JBed: @Bridget $AAOI Day trade: booked 5% on half of my position a couple of minutes ago. Holding onto the rest to see where it goes.
  • spmeyers: $AAOI appears to be breaking out RHRN
  • Bridget: $LITE is also looking strong today. A break above $60 would be a good sign. $AAOI
  • genki: $AAOI $TCMD pullback may be done.
  • issues: @genki $AAOI the 20 day is $60 so it would seem like it needs to come down 5-6 points. This could drop more like $MOMO prior to holiday weekend. Prefer to see a green day before buying AAOI. It could be rolling over. I added too soon to $MOMO and sure feels like that to me.
  • genki: @issues $AAOI $MOMO $AAOI has support around $63.30, so it could bounce off 8-EMA.
  • BocaRick: $AAOI now positive
  • stevef214: @RDM $AAOI I got in mid day yesterday after missing the last run. Planned on adding today if moving up and will move up stops on the add as it moves. I think if this moves up sharp today then it will be the case to use a short term ema as a tight stop for at least a portion of your position, at least that would be my plan.
  • haroldzero: $AAOI Hi does anyone know if there are any news on AAOI? Thx
  • stevef214: @haroldzero $AAOI looks to be settling here. Looking for one more 5 minute candle in the green.
  • stevef214: $AAOI bounced of the S1 pivot of 67.58 and now putting in somw sw movement on the 15min chart. I added at $68.57 and using a mental stop of $67.
  • JJT1: All P&F double top B/O $AAOI, $OLED, $LITE, $MOMO, $NTES, $ULTI, $AMBA, $FIZZ
  • issues: @stevef214 $AAOI I am waiting patiently and hoping to buy at around $60 for a long term hold. The 20 day is $57.80... come to papa!
  • BocaRick: $AAOI $OCLR $FNSR all up 4%+ premarket, no news that I can find. optical equipment. #Needham upgraded AAOI to Strong Buy with a PT of 85. #StockTwits comment, AAOI #Short Squeeze will really kick in at 70 -75?
  • thehook1: @BocaRick $AAOI $OCLR $FNSR $AAOI was upgraded today by Needham to $85
  • BocaRick: @thehook1 $AAOI $OCLR $FNSR Yes , saw that after I posted. I don't know why the others are up as much?
  • Robert1965: $AAOI is taking off New High 69.75
  • Riccardo: $BWLD $FDX $IYT $PCLN my shorts $AAOI $MOMO $ADSK $LOGM $CACC $PI $VMW my longs

    $ZBRA - new all time high
    $ ...
  • antfarm: $AAOI Sold to open June 16th 60 Put @ 1.65 when $AAOI was at 70.63.
  • RDM: $AAOI too late to add?
  • BocaRick: @antfarm $AAOI #FIDO says 33% short, upgraded with a PT of 82. Short squeeze can add more tomorrow. I'm long. Buy tomorrow, carefully at open rotation. Wait for higher level at 9:32..9:33, still up, I will be adding.
  • antfarm: @BocaRick $AAOI #FIDO Considering such an action. Thanks for the suggestion.
  • tcw23: $AAOI - this looks like a cup and handle on 3-month daily chart. The handle just finished and about to go higher. Thoughts?
  • issues: @tcw23 $AAOI I would say it's forming a handle. It's in consolidation. Sideways drift, if you get my drift.
  • DAN: $AAOI -- up about 15% since our alert on the 5th at $56.35. Nice consolidation here, and a move above $67 would be the next buy signal.
  • issues: @DAN $WB Dan I liked your tree analogy. The higher up the tree the less stable the jump up. That's good for WB. Let's face it, it's way up in the top branches and has no base from which to push higher. That analogy has kept me out of trouble. Word pictures are good for remembering basic principles. Now I am trying to decide which of these to add to: $AEIS $IPHI $BZUN $SINA $AMAT $TTD $QRVO $ABMD $AAOI. It's easy to see on the charts which look best but I value your opinion. Thanks Dan.
  • vscottg: @DAN $AAOI So, what is your take on today's pattern so far? I'm in small - want to add - wasn't around yesterday to do so and wasn't on this morning to take advantage of the big morning fallback
  • tcw23: $AAOI is running again.
  • Sher: $AAOI - My absolute worst trade of the year... Got spooked by negative guidance from a couple of peers and STC May $50 calls @ $3.40, before 5-4-17 AH earnings announcement - They're currently trading @ $14.00! I had several contracts - Still sobbing...
  • tjv821: @Sher $AAOI sorry I know how much that sucks
  • Bridget: @Sher $AAOI there was nothing wrong with closing long calls before earnings. But you could have gotten back in the next day.
  • Sher: @Bridget $AAOI - You are right - A definite 'coulda, woulda, shoulda'...
  • DAN: $AAOI -- 25% of float is short. Stock has run from $40 to $63 in just a month, so it's due to correct.'s not correcting. Instead, it's breaking out above $60 and continuing to move. I just added to my position today. With a long term view of the stock potential, I don't think I'm chasing. Slowly scaling into my position.
  • DAN: @Sher $AAOI Ugh! Sorry about that, Sher. ;-\
  • Bridget: ...
    $AEIS $AAOI $AVGO $PRAH $VEEV $SHOP - all these are working
    $SINA / $WB - working
    $IDXX - at a good buy point
    $YELP - broken stock. Might get oversold bounce but lots of overhead resistance above $32.
    $NVDA - gap and run to new all time high
    $EA- a ...
  • Aragorn: $MDXG - Loving this one along with $SQ. NVDA what a mover today, $AAOI and $SHOP monsters Have a good one

  • bobbybwana: @DAN $AAOI Added to my position after it broke $60
  • JBed: @DAN $AAOI Talk about volatility. I bought in my IRA a month ago at $54, held it through a 20% pullback, and am now up 12%. What's the short float on this one?
  • Motorman: @DAN $AAOI Thanks for the coversge over weekend, took small position yest @57
  • DAN: @bobbybwana $AAOI Nice, bobby. 8-) Ca Ching!
  • traderbren: @DAN $AAOI - looking good! Long and happy.
  • DAN: @Motorman $AAOI That's great, Motorman. Glad to hear that. Nice to make money and be in a stock before it breaks out.
  • bnnybklyn: @DAN $AAOI Has the ship sailed to get in for today you think ?
  • genki: @DAN $AAOI Hi Dan, I bought a starter position yesterday before the pullback:-(. Now that it has broken out previous high, do you advise to add more here?
  • danyhage44: @DAN $AAOI Dan, I bought this at 54 last week. I have a target price to sell at 65. Any thoughts on that? Thanks By the way I have taken 3 trades since I joined SMM, one I lost money (stopped out - WLDN), one I made some money(LGND) and one I am making good money (AAOI, not closed yet). Overall good results with good risk management. Thank you.
  • DAN: @danyhage44 $AAOI Hi danyhage44. Glad to have you aboard! Yeah, I think $65 would be a good price target...but I wouldn't just automatically sell it at $65. 26% of float is short. Monster fundamentals and growth. Small float, and just now gettin ...
  • DAN: @JBed $AAOI 26% of the float is short. That's pretty high.
  • DAN: @bnnybklyn $AAOI Sorry. Just saw this. I think you'll be able to buy this tomorrow. I don't think it's going to run away. But I do think it's going higher.
  • DAN: @genki $AAOI I'd wait. Let's see how the stock performs tomorrow.
  • DAN: @danyhage44 $AAOI $LGND -- by the way, danyhage44. Don't ignore LGND. They report after the bell. Always risky to own a stock over earnings...but 27% of the float is short. So any kind of upside surprise could push this stock out of a 6 month base. ( Happy to hear you are making money...and learning to manage risk rather than be a gunslinger).
  • danyhage44: @DAN $AAOI $LGND Thanks for the feedback. I sold LGND before the close today. Did not want to hold over earnings. Trying to be disciplined :)). I think that is a great advice you give to everyone and I am sticking to it. I appreciate the feedback on all this. Thanks
  • issues: @bwcarnation1 $NVDA Thanks but I missed $AAOI since I put stops in and got stopped out 20 points below where it is now and didn't want to buy back prior to 30 day wash sale rule. Missed AAOI and $AAPL but got others.
  • traderbren: $AAOI -- legging higher RHRN.
  • Bridget: Notes: Quite a few good performing stocks pulling back today. Taking a breather. Closed a lot more positions today than I opened. $BA - cup and handle pattern $XLNX - nice cup patterm $MRCY - new 52 week high $SODA - working $KTOS - new all time high $TSEM - new all time high $AAOI - resistance still at $60 $NWL - good ER, breakout from consolidation $WYNN $MLCO - profit taking looks done. Can look at possible entry. $KITE - breakout and down, $JUNO followed $CELG - breakout and down, looking at $115-116 for support $AMC - ER this afternoon, Weekly chart looks like a short set-up $COMM - still holding at 200ma $RL - another try to breakout but pulled back $DDD - 3D printing stocks up big today
  • HumanGeorge: Beautiful candle on $AAOI today. This name has a small float, and close to 20% short...they are gobbling up shares after the earnings report. Really like this name long even up 15% today. Chances are, this retest the 60 level from late March
