Raising Volatility

As Nasdaq has fell to new lows, implied volatility is raising. It was possible to buy QQQ September straddle with $1.45 earlier today, now you have to pay $1.70. CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) has spiked to 13.68. We will probably see raising VIX during the following days also.


Anonymous Great Penny Stock Tips said...

I have a web site where I give investment advise on penny stocks and stocks under five dollars. I would like to comment about stocks that are attractive as takeover targets. I find that stocks with very low price to sales ratios tend to become takeover targets because of their extremely low valuations. The price to sales ratio for those investors not familiar with this measurement its simply the market cap of a companies stock compared to the amount of sales a company does on an annual basis. Market cap is the value of all the companies shares outstanding multiplied by the market price of the shares. So if a company does say 1 billion dollars in annual sales and the company has a market cap of 100 million dollars this would mean the price to sales ratio is ten to one. A company like this would be a lot more likly to be taken private or bought out by management or private equity or be bought by another company in the same business that is if the company is in decent shape' simply because the company could be purchased for just 100 million dollars. Or maybe a modest premium over the 100 million dollars say 140 million dollars. as opposed to another company in similar condition but with a much higher price to sale ratio.
