There are other people here. Many lurk, like they do on a lot of threads, but Apple Fanboy Central has only 28 SubjectMarks. The main Apple Inc. thread, by comparison, has 888 as of this writing.

Even if most of those are inactive accounts, that's a lot more eyeballs over there, and thus, a lot more activity.

Same is true for the Apple, Inc. Unmoderated thread, it has only 77 SubjectMarks, but it's also approaching open sewer status, because it is unmoderated. One I gleefully participate in sometimes, I might add.

This thread, by its very nature, does not have an open debate free-for-all. That is not its purpose. Most people have no interest in a "feel good about Apple" thread, they want robust, moderated discussion. That's what Clean86 is trying to offer at Apple Inc.

He has a very tough job and he's doing the best he can. I couldn't be paid enough to moderate that forum.

Agree with you 100%. In fact, I agree so much that I'm not even going to mention what it is that I'm agreeing about, lest the virus infect this thread as well.

[deep breath] Love that fresh air!

Just got around to reading that article today.

That was an excellent piece, by someone whom I think truly "gets it" about Apple, John Gruber.

Multiple styles and rumors for iWatch:
zdnet.com

It looks like there are a number of conflicting rumors about available sizes. It does seem like everyone's wrist is different, and sizes will vary accordingly. Having a handy iPhone or not having one could make a difference on feature set choices.

50 million of these is the rumored sales goal, which could provide a nice top and bottom line boost while also attracting more people to the platform for iPhones, iPads and Macs.

spitsong asked me on another thread:

<<rnsmth: What made you decide on the $90 calls rather than the $92.86 (or some other) strike?

I'm curious about the criteria you apply when making a decision like that >>

The answer was really beyond the scope of that topic, so I am moving it here after a private message back and forth with him.

I have often bought slightly ITM or OTM calls when I think Apple is going to do well before the expiration date. I think that is the case today.

Criteria 1 - the delta - it is .53 on the $90's and .45 on the 95's. I like the delta. If Apple goes up $10 and the delta stays the same (it won't it, it will get higher) the calls would go up $5.30 - unless my understanding of delta is way off base.

Oddball strike prices caused by the stock split - I had some Jan 2015 600's, which became $85.71's. I do not like that. I think there is be less liquidity in these going forward even though the current IO is pretty large (open interest 63,372 contracts) compared with 8,379 for the April 2015 $90's. So, when I rolled them up and out, I selected a strike price of a pre-split $630.

Not very sophisticated, I know, but I think I will make some money on them. It is possible that AAPL will dip some in the near-term, but no lower than the mid-80's, IMO. If it gets below $87 or so I will probably add some April $85's.

rnsmth: What calculator do you use to determine the delta?

Is there a URL?

I look at nasdaq.com

nasdaq.com

When you click on a particular month's option chain and then on a specific strike price it will be up a quote, a graph, and a table of the "greeks"

rnsmth: This is very helpful ... thank you! Is there a Max-Pain site you ever use, too?
