  • Kharrison67: $AAOI is testing the 20day, pretty ugly pull back, but on average volume. Keeping an eye on it for a bounce. May be some profit taking after the earnings report.
  • geotheo: $AAOI Saying Applied Optoelectronics (NASDAQ:AAOI) "finally showed signs of life in its Datacenter business," Craig-Hallum upgrades the company from Sell to Hold and raises the price target from $10 to $19. Craig-Hallum says it now "sees a very clear path to breakeven," but the firm will stay on the sidelines until AAOI demonstrates "a consistent level of profitability." Cowen (Outperform) raises its AAOI target from $12 to $19, saying the Q2 results and forecast showed strengthening demand and increment support for the firm's thesis that "AAOI’s operating model will likely return to eventual solid profitable growth." AAOI shares are up 17.1% pre-market to $17.62.
  • bRobert: @geotheo $AAOI Long from $10 Set up the trade here Several members followed $20/$28/$40+ Long term

  • vscottg: $AAOI Can anyone give me guidance/insight on the implied move for $AAOI? Trying to make final decision on my course of action (or inaction) with my shares over earnings. Having never paid attention to options stuff, I'm a neophyte at deciphering or following guidance based upon that realm.
  • sweeper240: @vscottg $AAOI $BYND fyi and definitely different industries but I held over earnings and lost a lot... If you are up, stay up by exiting before earnings. If you have Stock. then its not so bad but if you have options... exit before earnings :)
  • Kharrison67: @vscottg $AAOI TOS options Aug7 expire chain shows a 229.27% it will move +/- 2.644
  • vscottg: @Kharrison67 @sweeper240 $AAOI Thanks a bunch to both of you. Not doing options - "just" stock. I'm up about 50% and was thinking of exiting. Your information greatly helps. Implied move is more risk than I want to endure.

  • Bert953: @Bwhitty $AAOI I'd say its already blasted off and is at Resistance. This last week has reminded me of the dangers of buying stocks after they've run up significantly rather than buying at a good entry.A better time to have purchased this puppy was Friday afternoon or monday morning. Today looks more like the time to be setting a trailing stop. Q2 on 8/6 after close.
