I found the following below commentary today. SVA is going to end up being a monster long term investment and it won't be because of the below. However, I do think the below will cause a run to into double digits.

THE first scientific analysis of probable human-to-human transmission of a deadly new strain of bird flu that emerged in China this year gives the strongest evidence yet that the H7N9 virus can pass between people, scientists said yesterday.

Research published in the British Medical Journal analyzing a family cluster of cases of H7N9 infection in eastern China found it was very likely the virus “transmitted directly from the index patient to his daughter.”

Experts commenting on the research said it provided “a timely reminder of the need to remain extremely vigilant.”

“The threat posed by H7N9 has by no means passed,” James Rudge and Richard Coker of the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine said in a commentary in the journal.

However, the scientists who led the study stressed that the virus has not yet gained the ability to transmit from person to person efficiently.

133 people infected

Unknown in humans until February, the virus has so far infected at least 133 people in China, killing 43 of them, according to World Health Organization data.

Most cases have been in people who had visited live poultry markets or had close contact with live poultry several days before falling ill.

The BMJ study, lead by Bao Changjun at the Jiangsu Province Center for Disease Control and Prevention, analyzed two H7N9 patients — a father and daughter — in eastern China in March 2013.

The first patient — a 60-year-old man — fell ill five to six days after his last exposure to live poultry.

He was admitted to hospital on March 11, transferred to an intensive care unit on March 15 but died of multi-organ failure on May 4.

The second patient, his healthy 32-year-old daughter, had no known exposure to live poultry but provided direct bedside care for her father in the hospital.

She developed symptoms six days after her last contact with her father and died of multi-organ failure.

Strains of the virus taken from each patient were “almost genetically identical” — a strong suggestion the virus was transmitted directly from father to daughter.

Successful traders if they are honest will tell you that LUCK plays a BIG part in their success.

I got lucky today. Tesla was trading down 8 points nearly all day long and then after the close, they announced earnings that no one had expected or even whispered about. In after market trading, TSLA was up 20 from it's closing price.

Happy Lucky Day :)

I bought a 120 put right at the open and it promptly rose in value over the course of the day. It will be worthless tomorrow and I will cry all the way to the bank.

Sad unlucky day for me as well. Solar City beat Wall Streets numbers but their guidance for the next quarter was more pessimistic than expected so it collapsed in after market trading and I did not by puts there.

51 million dollars of TSLA profits last quarter came from carbon credits......

Money is money. I don't think Tesla's stock price is sustainable. It would have to execute perfectly and all outside forces would have to be in their favor for Tesla to grow into its current valuation within 5 years. I hope they do it but I think I'm going to get off the Tesla ride for awhile. I'm going to sell weekly (somewhat) out of the money calls until they take the stock away from me.

Just an update...

CCIH has cut a deal with Microsoft and got a bounce today, up 7% so far. This pick is up 43%+ since I posted.
SVA announced earnings last night. Nice 80%+ gain in revenues. Future monster here. This pick is up 23%+ since I posted.
SIMG reported. I see a double digit stock in this one. This pick is up 21%+ since I posted.
CKSW produced a disappointing report, however, I still expect great things from them. This pick is down 12%+ since I posted.
OPTR, as I thought, took a buyout offer. Unfortunately, it was more of a take under than a takeover. I expect plenty of lawsuits and a probable increase in the offer. I will continue to hold. This pick is down 10%+ from when I posted and it is the only pick that I somewhat regret at this point.

I finally closed my TSLA at 166 today. That's a $75 per share profit on 420 shares. Not too shabby for three months work. I'm doing this as part of a reset to cash in all of my accounts. I hope I don't miss a big rally but I'm going to really dig into some balance sheets and try to find a bargain before the end-of-the-year rally that historically begins in late October
