As much as I think this market is as fake as Pam Anderson's titties, I gotta say you gotta go with what's hot.   Tech is hot.   I have February calls on the following companies.  I think at least one of these 3 has a huge pop on Monday/Tuesday.

VMW
SWKS
BRCM

Tech is hot.

Also thinking of doing straddles for AMZN.  I think the stock is gonna move on earnings.  Either way up or way down.

I agree on NFLX

Problem is you are going to need a long horizon and that will cost you.

True Walls.  Buying puts on this phony market has cost me a garbage load this past year

I am the same..not in puts but in bear ETF's and its been a miserable two years.

But my horizon is not two years or five years..when the bear turns I will cash nicely and I am very patient.

That's smart.  Only a matter of time.  We are thinking logically.   The bubble will burst within the next couple years for sure.

Yeah I know. 
Both of the other plays have earnings today and tomorrow. VMW option will expire worthless
