The next big AAPL investment

Apple Inc. options by expiration – Google Finance.

I am tempted once again to invest seriously in AAPL leaps. So I found the following for January 2016:

– AAPL Call 100: $12.90 – great way to bet that Tim Cook and team will blow everybody’s minds off with their „best pipeline of products in the last 25 years” on Sept. 9 – and establish a new lucrative market

– Bull Call Spread 100/120: $6.75 – better way to bet on a moderate growth, with a break even at 106.75 in 16 months.

Also I would like to play a little amount on Oct out of the money calls just in case the pop is immediate after the announcement. But this is very risky, lotto style.

What do you think?

So two weeks ago I bought some AAPL Sept. 5 bull call spreads 103/104 @ 0.19, when Apple passed through the previous high resistance, betting on the „buy the rumor” phase of the Sept 9 show and the momentum from investors who wanted back into AAPL now that it’s got no more technical resistance.

AAPL performed nicely, but being still out of the money with a week to go yesterday I place an order to sell half the spreads for twice the price (0.38) so now I have my money back and I still own half of the spreads for free.

I still expect AAPL to finish next week around 104 or so, so I should get a nice profit from them. But just in case Ukraine or some other market event turn things sour, I have my capital fully protected.

If you’re a smartphone manufacturer other than Apple or Samsung, condolences on your second quarter. Because according to new research from Canaccord analyst Michael Walkley, it was an ugly one in whichApple and Samsung captured 108 percent of handset industry profitsand you likely posted another operating loss.
