Halftime Report for 2.23.2012

Salesforce reports today after the bell . Quarterly earnings (Q4E) $.40 and Quarterly revenue (Q4E) $524M. Salesforce has a PEG of 3.7 and Forward PE of around $85. At this price I think CRM might be overvalued. SHLD ripped 10$ on reporting a $2.5 billion loss, hmmm.

Unusual Options Activity:

We saw a customer buying SNE JULY 22 and 23 Calls and sold the $16 Puts. In my opinion, this is very bullish activity.SNE is trading 9.5x average volume. Andrew Keene bought the July 23 Calls for $.95.

Also, we have seen a big sell order of 10,000 contracts of IAU on April 18 Calls for a $.25. This could be covering of a prior position or an outright short.
