A Flurry of Activity

For those of you who don't know, I publish all of my trades on this page.  I don't show the number of shares, but I do show the price at which I bought/sold.  Recently, I've been busy buying and selling and my broker is loving it.  I've bought shares of Google (GOOG), First Solar (FSLR), Synaptics (SYNA), and sold some True Religion (TRLG) and Garmin (GRMN).  On the options side, I've sold uncovered puts for TRLG and SYNA, as I'm bullish on the stocks and wouldn't mind owning some more shares even if they got exercised.  As well, I sold some covered calls on TRLG, because I felt that the recent run up could lose some steam.  I could be wrong and the shares could be called away, but only after a 28% gain!  Either case, I'm a happy man!

I still haven't written about my case for Synaptics, but I hope to do it sometime within the next 2 weeks.  It just had a pretty impressive quarter and I'm hyped about this company.
