Google Earnings for April 2012

I don’t know about you but I don’t have a clue which way GOOG will move after earnings.  I do have some historical facts that may or may not help.  Never has GOOG missed two earnings in a row.  Less pay per  clicks have been registered this quarter and China growth is all but gone.  I still have clients that want to be in GOOG but do not like to take the risk associated with owning a “high flier”, volatile stock.  Here is how I played the position

I bought the stock @ $633.90 a share yesterday.  Where you own a volatile stock like GOOG it could easily loss $100 a share before the market even opens tomorrow.  I have a lot of risk on 1000 shares of stock so I look to find a way to lower the risk. 
I bought to open a May 12 $635 long put for $26.50.
Stock 633.90 + 26.50 long put price = $660.40 total cost basis BUT
I have the right to sell GOOG at $635
NEW risk is 660.40 – 635 = $25.40 per share.
That sure beats hundreds of dollars and I now have a defined risk in my trade.  $25.40 / 660.40 = 3.8% of my total invested capital.  I love less than 4% risk in my trade of 660K !!!
I am also trying to control greed so why not lower my risk even more??? If I sold GOOG @ 675 I would make some good returns on a stock bought at almost 634.  I sold a short call for $10.50 that would cap my profits yet lower my risk even more. 
New Risk of $25.40 – 10.50 = $14.90 is the most I could lose on this trade out to the third Friday of May 2012. 14.90 – 650 total cost basis = 2.3% overall risk in the trade. My clients and I can liv
e with that and this is the way money managers should be looking at your trades.
What is the most I can make?  Well by selling the short call and capping if GOOG goes over 675 by that third Friday in May I have to sell at %675.
$675 – Cost of stock $633.90 – $25.40 for the putt + $10.50 short call = $26.20 profit or a 4% return in 9 weeks and there are things I can do to adjust the trade if the stocks moves up.  In a modest best guess it will turn into a 10% return or over $50 per share if GOOG trades over $700 in May !!!

I think investing will be worth-it if you have a knowledge on stocks. Otherwise, you can get financial advise so that you won’t feel like you lose your money when the stocks go down or something. It is better to not invest all of your money and test the water first before taking a swim.
