I decided to start this journal now. It will hopefully help me keep more focus on trading what I should be which are carefully scanned stocks. I usually do well when I do so. AXP - I'm bullish and have been buying Calls recently. I own a bunch of July $37.50s which I will unload soon for a nice profit. I own July $65s which I bought yesterday when the stock was in the low $44 range. And I own 80 October $70 Calls which I think can easily double from here before then. This is a good company. DRYS - Bought some July $40 Calls yesterday when the stock was up only slightly and unloaded them when the stock moved higher at a hefty profit. Was too reactionary and bought some June $45 calls which make me nuts, but they're profitable nicely and I've sold some of them for a 50% profit so far today. GWR - Beautiful chart and it's got a very low PE, it's going much higher. I bought 85 October $35 Calls when the stock was trading just under $32. AMZN - I own 30 October $60 Puts. I think they'll grow in value between now and then whether or not the stock goes to $60 or not. I can't imagine they can make it through many more earnings periods without shaving off a quick 10-15%. If they don't I'm out a bit, but not a fortune. This is about 10% of my trading capital. The rest is in a few longer term holds I'm accumulating. They're very very small cap investments and I'll post them when I'm done accumulating. One is currently trading at $3.35 and the other is at $3.65. Both are trading slightly under my average prices but I expect to see huge gains in both long term and don't really care. I'm busy selling some shares of another long term hold I've had since it was $2 or so and is now $14. The stock is PRXI and I'm moving profits from that into the other two small caps.
