Buy TSN July 17 62.50 Puts. trading now at $4.70 if you think Tyson is going to take a hit. If workers don't/can't come back stock mostly moves down. If Trump can force them back it will most likely go up. You make the call.

Buffett sold all of his airline stocks he said at his annual meeting. He also isn't buying many stocks right now. Interesting news from a smart man.

Yes, airlines are probably not at a bottom yet.

I have purchased some Spirit Aerosystems (SPR), Matador Resources (MTDR), Marathon Oil (MRO), Eldorado Resorts (ERI), and I will soon buy some Pinterest (PINS). I really like Matador as their earnings were pretty decent and seem poised to weather the storm, plus their forward PE is nice. I bought some Eldorado Resorts at $16 and it has had a nice run-up, now it may be time to buy some MGM Resorts as it looks like they are positioning themselves to reopen.

Hopefully, we are through the worst of this, even though I believe the market will be shaky for most of the summer.

Love all the capitalist discussion. Much better than doomsday discussion among DeLPS. ;)

Short term there is $$$ to be made in equities. Long-term, the global debt crisis has yet to be resolved. That's when thing could get globally ugly.

Toldeo, as I remember you were a big enthusiast of silver.

Silver seems to be pretty stable as it was the same price in 2017.

With the stock market losing big time why has silver not responded, but gold has?

Again just my input for fun and not my financial advice, but buying calls has more upside if you think this will go up. If you are really aggressive buy some that are $10 or more out of the money right now. You can buy $84 calls for $1.50 today. 1 call controls 100 shares. If you own the stock you would be covered and would not have to trade naked. Now that I think about this, buying the call does not require the stock ownership to be covered. That would be if you sold the calls, then you would be covered. You might want to research a 'buy-write' as well. Read my disclaimer if you do this online and don't talk to a broker.

SPYD is up nearly 10% since 4/16.
zoltar: I understand the leveraged positions. just can't pull that trigger. for me, it's simple risk and not putting $$ in that I can't afford to lose. the only thing that makes a loss worse, it margin call.

I want to know cleanly, clearly what I have on the table to lose.
