Re: Where to see what stocks TMF employees own

There's no central place where all TMFer's are listed along with what stocks they own but you can look up any TMF employee on the profile page like Fuskie mentioned and see what they own. Additionally, at the end of every article there's [more]

Re: Watchlist with charts

I use Morningstar's portfolio tool. There is a small pop up chart right on the portfolio page though for any detail you'd need to click on the chart to take you off the portfolio page and onto the main page that contains the stock's [more]

Re: thoughts on Disney?

For a company that has so many storied brands you'd think it would be able to charge some sort of premium for, Disney looks to have a pretty average return on capital. 5 year average ROIC is 11.6% and that's with the company doing well under [more]

Re: Buy & Hold versus overweight with AAPL

I agree with CABob that it's more helpful and useful to look at your AAPL holding as a percentage of your entire portfolio vs. just your IRA. 9% seems a lot more reasonable than 20% for a single position. I can't criticize a 9% position in [more]

Re: Write Puts and Covered Calls - Order Entry?

You'd click "Sell." You're selling puts to open a position in the stock. You're not buying anything.

That said, your best bet will be to open a chat window with a Thinkorswim support person who can open up your account [more]
