$SE is being sued by the maker of the video game PUBG (Krafton Inc.) for copywrite infringement. Krafton is also suing Apple and Google for distribution of copywritten work. Sea Limited's Garena subsidiary produces Free Fire, a PUBG clone. Wikipedia has a couple nice articles on the history and case law regarding copywrite and video games. Looks like a publicity stunt/money grab by Krafton to me. Not material for investors, imo.
Interesting high IV stocks with liquid options I noticed today, for any premium sellers out there: $AAPL, $T, $XBI--I'll be trying to setup some iron butterflies/condors as my Friday evening entertainment.
Depends on the ticker, days to expiration, and risk/reward ratio (i.e. price). High IV gives you the ability to make them wider, and the tendency to become profitable faster. I rarely wait until expiration, and take profits at whatever level makes sense given the circumstances. Yes, I sell calls and puts to when appropriate.
2021 Best Finance/Investing/Money/Business Books Thread
Inspired by @partnershipinv's book recommendations, I thought it might be an interesting idea to start a general thread of the best books folks read (or listened to) in 2021. No limits, but try to keep it to your absolute top picks, and try to keep it related to finance somehow, even if tenuously. These do not have to be published in 2021, just read last year. Include title, author, and interesting tidbits, if you like.
At the end of 2020 it was pretty clear that shipping (as in ocean-going ships) was finally going to have its day. Normally, I stay far away, as it's a weird industry with crummy economics and lots of shady financial antics, but I jumped in via $DAC, $NMM, $SBLK, and a couple of players in Thailand. These trades formed a significant portion of my short-term gains for the year. I've since switched to an adjacent, longer term hold, in $TRTN (shipping container lessor), which is my current second largest single stock holding.
