Rate Rise Happy

November 19, 2015

Just want to highlight the US market movements of recent days. Paris got attacked, and while the Asian markets fell early, there was recovery throughout the day, and by the time the US market came around, the panic has dissipated which looks like the day is just starting off like any ordinary day. You have to take note of this behavioural pattern, there is fear of the unknown at the start, and as the day progresses, it becomes clear where the negative effects are — and the negative effects are limited, at the end of the day only travel and airline stocks declined. With the airline stocks, this may qualify as a buying opportunity for the medium-term given how oil prices remain slack, and the potential for another terrorist attack is lowered by the increased security and intelligence gathering. However, just so you know, ISIS themselves are saying there will be more attacks to come.

The US Fed came out with the minutes of their last meeting also last night, where it is no surprise (and they have been saying for months now) that the rate hike is coming, is needed, investors took note in the Minutes that they are proceeding with a gradual pace, so that the economy will remain buoyant. Frankly, I was expecting more volatility in the market last night, but you have to put away preconceived notions and just go with the market. And the market cheered the policy with a rally the whole day. My position in GILD was hedged (with a Covered Call) after a good run of the last 3 days, so my gameplan is to “roll up” my option so that I can still enjoy the rise in price — given that there is this megadeal in the biotech space with Pfizer buying Allergan.

Also just want to highlight the US market movements of recent days, and the phenomenal profitable plays
AAPL – Apple up 3.5% the last 3 days, even up by $3.5 just yesterday!
WMT – Walmart up 7% the last 3 days
GILD – Gilead a biotech company up 5.8% the last 3 days
(I posted about buying this in this post)

These gains are just on the stock ownership, what more with Options strategies that could readily give you – with this kind of price action – a return of 400% in just 1 day! Say spend 20c for a 117 AAPL Call Option expiring this week, and the next day the 117 Call Option is worth 1.08 or 440%. (See the images in this post). This kind of trading opportunities exists …. not yet in the Philippine Market unfortunately, but in the US market.

So don’t waste any more time. Register for the full US Investing workshop! You can still avail of the Early Bird Rate of 5,000 pesos and I will let you attend the the Low-Risk High-Reward Investing Workshop (where we teach creating a profitable system and assessing the market / business environment) for just another 1000 pesos (normally 3,000).
