This weeks outlook

Here are some notes i took down, concerning positions i have or wish to look into:

------------------------HSOL-------------------------
Problem:
80% loss on HSOL, with 70 positions, current price 5.217

Strategy to recover HSOL:
-write 5 puts of HSOL for DEC 17 @ .75 (375$), if it is exercised, $2500 of HSOL will be bought, average price of owned HSOL in portfolio will become: 5.02 

-puts might not be bought, might need to write puts for earlier deadline, to ensure that they will be held, but for less premium, however still bringing the price down.

------------------------BIDU------------------------
Outlook: earnings next week and US declaring debt report in 2 weeks, extremely volatile. 

But the outlook for BIDU is nonetheless pretty good, might be a good time to buy some calls @150, and write some puts at/around 140$ (not to keep, these puts must be bought to close if stock goes below 145, currently @ 152.)

Sought put write price: 4.00 (x100) for BIDU 200811 140 P
	Call price:	4.00 (x100) for BIDU 200811 155 C
