12/1 – 3:05 p.m. New York time

In today’s outcomes, I entered a position on GWPH and exited one on FIVE, each of them an earnings play using shares.

12/1 – 2:45 p.m. New York time

GWPH‘s ADX has reached 25 and I have entered a position.

12/1 – 1:10 p.m. New York time

I have updated two posts with results of earnings plays using options: ADSK and KR. That wraps up the documentation that I had fell behind in getting done.

Henceforth, I shall ride my horse and point lance in the direction counseled by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra in his novel Don Quixote (1605-1615): “Diligence is the mother of good fortune, and idleness — its opposite — never brought a man to the goal of any of his best wishes.”

12/1 – 11:55 a.m. New York time

I have updated several posts with results of earnings plays using shares. They are: GLNG and PSTG, DSGX and MIK and FIVE.

12/1 – 9:43 a.m. New York time

I have no prospective new positions on my agenda for Friday. I exited FIVE for a profit.

The one possibility for a new position, GWPH as an earnings play using shares, has an average directional index (ADX) below 25, marking it as non-trending. But the ADX is 24.7, which is very, very close. If the ADX hits 25 or higher, then I shall take the trade.
