New Strong Buy Stocks for August 28th
Read MoreAnimal health giant Zoetis halted for volatility on takeover report
To note, CNBC's David Faber is reporting Friday that Valeant is not going to pursue a deal for Zoetis.
But Nathan warns that this is not necessarily the smartest strategy for investors. "It seems a bit like a frenzy here. I don't think you want to go out and buy calls for every stock you hear is going to be taken over or rumors floated."
Thursday afternoon, trading in animal health company Zoetis was halted on a Wall Street Journal report that the company was approached by Canada-based drugmaker Valeant Pharmaceuticals for a potential takeover. When the stock reopened, shares soared more than 11 percent into the close. And that meant a cool win for one smart trader.
And seemingly right as the news hit, one trader purchased 300 of the June 26 weekly 50-strike calls in Zoetis for 34 cents. Since buying a call option allows one the right to purchase a stock at a set price for a given time, this is a bullish bet that the stock would be above $50.34 by Friday.

6. Sell your gently used clothes ... at a consignment or resale store, like Plato's Closet on Central Avenue in Albany. "We look for current styles for guys and girls; clothes that middle schoolers or college kids are wearing right now," says Kristen Frank, manager at Plato's Closet. Like their sister store next door, Clothes Mentor — which is strictly women's and more business casual (think designer handbags and dress pants) — they pay cash right on the spot after assessing your clothes.
5. Offer to baby-sit. Let your friends know that if they ever need a sitter for their kids — or if they know of others with little ones — that you're available for baby-sitting jobs, as long as it works with your schedule. Kids not your thing? Pet-sitting can just be as lucrative.
1. Peddle your gadgets: Got an iPhone, Mac or other electronic you no longer need or want? Answer a few quick questions at gazelle.com to see how much the buy-back site will pay you for it. At press time, we inquired about an iPhone 4S 16GB (AT&T) in good condition. The offer: $190. Not bad! Once you ship it (for free), you can choose from a check, Amazon gift card or PayPal.
2. Break out your old baubles: "Sell your old jewelry pieces, especially if you have only one of a pair of earrings or even your old high school or college ring that you don't wear anymore," suggested Donna from Loudonville on Facebook.
Fortunately, there are plenty of ways to make quick money right away that aren't too time-consuming. With help from local experts, here's our list.
4. Hawk your hardcovers: On Facebook, Jeanne from Albany suggested this novel idea: "Sell books at a used bookstore." If you just can't part with your beloved reads, consider textbooks instead.
3. Tutor students: If you happen to be a math whiz, excellent writer or master of some other school subject, contact local schools to see if you can help tutor struggling students after class. If sharpening resumes is your expertise, check in with their career or counseling department, too.

Enter at the wrong place and time and you can be right, but get taken out without profiting from being right. The built-in loss protection of the binary option is more forgiving. It won't punish you for being right, but early or off by a few ticks in your order placement.
With Nadex binaries, you know your maximum potential profit and loss before you enter the trade. This allows you to calculate risk/reward with precision. Since the trade is fully paid for up front, you never get a margin call.
Most traders know the risk of large, fast market moves that go against your position. Even if you set a stop-loss order, you can lose more than your account balance and get a margin call from your broker. This is the “unlimited risk” mentioned in disclaimers.
With flat markets, it can be hard to find a low and high far enough apart to be profitable. And in volatile markets, you might find yourself taking on an unreasonable risk for a relatively small reward.
Binary options offer individual traders a new, innovative way to participate in the markets with limited risk, protection against volatility, and the ability to profit from short-term market moves—up, down, or sideways.
When the market moves against your position, you face a loss that could be devastating. Traditionally, you use a stop-loss order to get out with a manageable loss.

Article printed from InvestorPlace Media,
Deep in-the-money calls are those where the strike price of the call option is significantly less than the current stock price.
(The prices in this example have moved recently so check option chains for current pricing).
For example, if ABC stock was at $53 and had strikes available at $50, $45, $40, and $35 then the first strike in the money is $50. So, according to the IRS, options less than 90 days would be “deep” at strikes $45 and below, and options with more than 90 days would be “deep” at strikes $40 and below.
The advantage of using deep in-the-money covered calls is the safety you get with increased downside protection (intrinsic value). The disadvantage is that there may not be much time premium and you give up all of your upside potential.
IT WASN'T GIDEON by John L. Kane, United States Senior District
The rest of the interior gives no respite to the eye. The designers deserve credit for blessing the Cadillac with a rich mix of materials, but when the passenger-side dash is covered with leather, sueded microfiber, carbon fiber, and a hard plastic lower section, one gets the sense that designers are hitting too many notes to make them all sing in harmony. It gets worse in back. While the seatbacks on our test car wore more sueded microfiber, the plastic on the back side of the center console could have come out of any of General Motors’ 1990s compact cars, if not for the two tiny air vents and the 110-volt AC and 12-volt DC power outlets. A simpler, clean interior rendered with a narrower array of exquisite—and only exquisite—materials would be better. Folks like being offered a choice among 31 flavors of ice cream, but no one orders them all in one cup.
Blame, too, the V-6’s lack of low-end torque, being 10 lb-ft shy of the peak figure produced by Cadillac’s turbocharged 2.0-liter four and far behind the higher-performance variants of its competitive set, such as the BMW 340i, the Mercedes-AMG C43, and the Infiniti Q50 Red Sport 400. With more abundant torque at lower rpm—thank you, turbochargers—each of those cars easily makes the zero-to-60-mph hustle in the mid-four-second range and offers better midrange power than the ATS 3.6, which must be wound nearly to its 7000-rpm redline before it feels like it’s on the boil. That’s a task we rather enjoy in, say, a Camaro V-6 1LE with a manual transmission, but in this car, it’s somewhat out of character. Sure, the ATS has shift paddles, but few will want to use them all the time. Speaking of the Camaro, in that car the same V-6 emits a sound that we’ve described as a “heady tenor snarl,” but this Cadillac’s performance exhaust system—a $1650 option—produces more of a droney blat, and that blat is too loud. (From outside, however, the car sounds bad-ass. Remember the old Infiniti G35? Yeah, kinda like that.)
The Phantom Gray 2017 Cadillac ATS Premium Performance model you see here has all the right stuff to be a world-class sports sedan: a solid, lightweight platform; rear-wheel drive; a high-revving 3.6-liter V-6 with 335 naturally aspirated horsepower; a snappy eight-speed automatic transmission; adaptive, adjustable magnetorheological dampers; a limited-slip differential; and staggered-width summer tires. Stir in options such as the V-Sport red-painted Brembo calipers with slotted rotors and upgraded pads, performance exhaust, a sport suspension upgrade, and an interior richer than a Parisian house of ill repute, and we’ve got ourselves a four-door Chevy Camaro V-6 in a Hugo Boss suit.
Or at least that’s what it should have been. Despite that impressive arsenal of equipment, this Cadillac turned in a rather mediocre performance. Not what we expected from a car that seemed to be just a pair of turbochargers and a brace of Recaro seats away from being an ATS-V.
What didn’t feel right was the ATS’s packaging. Undeniably dressy, the ATS is nonetheless graying at the temples, turning zero heads as far as we could tell. The dashboard remains a mish-mash of capacitive touch sliders and buttons on which one is never quite sure where to press—on the silver parts or on the shiny black regions just above them. The CUE infotainment system is a well-documented source of madness that is offset somewhat by the friendly folks at OnStar who relieve subscribers from the need to enter destinations into the navigation system themselves, instead allowing simple voice commands. Also on the plus side: The clever (if confusing at first) hidden storage bin behind the motorized central dash panel contains an inductive charging station as well as a USB port. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are supported, and all works as intended.
For starters, there’s the powertrain. Since we first tested a 2013 ATS 3.6 sedan with its six-speed automatic transmission, both its 3.6-liter V-6 and the gearbox have been replaced. With 335 horsepower at 6800 rpm and 285 lb-ft of torque at 5300 rpm, the new 3.6-liter makes 14 hp and 10 lb-ft of torque more than did its similarly sized predecessor, and with eight speeds rather than six, the new transmission—in theory—should be able to make the most of its enhanced output. Yet, this car needed 5.6 seconds to get to 60 mph, 0.2 second behind the 2013 model. The same gap is found at the quarter-mile mark, which the eight-speed ATS hit in 14.2 seconds at 100 mph. Perhaps more worrisome: Its zero-to-60-mph time was also 0.2 second slower than the ATS 2.0T AWD we tested last year, a car that weighed nine pounds more than this one. The eight-speed, it appears, has been geared and calibrated with far more interest in fuel economy than in performance.

LOYAL3 is great for novice investors with limited assets and those who want an uncomplicated way to buy stock in recognizable companies. Its commission-free trading is a huge advantage as well. However, other limitations, including a lack of retirement accounts and securities besides stocks, might make more experienced traders think twice.
Has LOYAL3 changed the way you look at online investing?
To keep its costs low, LOYAL3 combines its customers’ orders and executes them as a single trade, a practice known as “batch trading.” This results in a significant lag – potentially up to two business days – between when you place your order and when it executes.
Despite a complete lack of trading commissions, LOYAL3 makes money by offering certain services to the companies in its database:
It lacks many of the features of full-service brokerages, including stock screeners, retirement accounts, and securities other than stocks. However, LOYAL3 boasts several rare features: It makes it easy for relative novices to get in on corporate IPOs, it makes fractional shares of stock available for purchase, and it never charges commissions to buy or sell stocks.
LOYAL3 also aims to broaden regular investors’ access to corporate IPOs, which are very difficult to participate in via regular brokerages. When an IPO is available on LOYAL3, the platform walks interested investors through the process of reservation (when you request a specific number of shares), confirmation (when you’re asked to confirm your order), and allocation (when you actually receive your shares). Due to the competitive nature of the IPO process, the number of allocated shares may be lower than what you requested. It may include fractional shares too.
You can’t place a limit order, which is an order to buy or sell a stock for a specific price. And, the platform has a glaring lack of basic tools that users of other brokerages take for granted, such as real-time quotes, stock charts, screening tools, and analyst recommendations.

8. Click the cell at the bottom of the “Forecast” column in the “Total” row. Click the “Autosum” button to create a total of the year’s forecasted sales.
When you're working on sales forecasts, Microsoft Excel can take care of all of the calculations for you. Most sales forecasts require two types of calculations: adding sales and multiplying growth rates -- or, on occasion, reductions. Sales are seldom steady, and many markets have fluctuations in sales throughout the year. Gather all of your sales records for the previous year to make your forecast as accurate as possible for the coming year. Save a copy of your forecast. It will provide you with valuable data when working on next year's forecast.
