Thoughts on SNAP IPO?

You know what happens to their messages after a day? I'd be worried the same will happen to their stock
I'm an optimist; but only because life isn't going to give me any other good choices.

It's been 10 seconds. The messages are gone but the stock remains bloated. Ridiculous pricing. I need to learn the art of making a company that loses money, has somewhat stalled growth, yet still be worth $35 billion on the open market.

How far out?

Talking of puts, I recently saw some good value in writing TM puts.

Interesting take by Josh Brown (he starts arguing his point at about 0:48).

+1 The savers credit on the Roth IRA is amazing. Basically you get a tax credit to put money into an account that will never pay taxes (assuming the laws aren't changed). The kicker is that if you have a low enough income for the full savers credit you probably aren't paying much in taxes anyway. Plus with a Roth you can withdraw principle whenever you want and earnings for qualified expenses like purchase of a home, education or healthcare.
the downside of this thinking is: savers credit is a nonrefundable credit, so if you're low enough to qualify (especially if you're getting other refundable credits; EITC etc.) your net tax bill is negative, this credit is irrelevant. (or am I calculating this wrong)?

Bet worked out well last time around. I think there's good value there again (even if one ends up being assigned, TM might be decent value at current prices).

Are you writing covered or uncovered puts?

It's clear he is writing uncovered as he talks about being ok with being assigned as good value.

I agree that it sounds like he's talking about uncovered. I was hoping he could confirm that and possibly also comment on taking on such an open ended risk

This is in an IRA, so it's covered (cash covered) puts.
