Last week, the world market indices were all pretty flat except
Russia was down
6% due to the continued unrest in . Ukraine ’s Bovespa index was up 4%
this week and up 19% for all of 2014.
But the Bovespa index changed their company weighting rules in April, so
some of this meteoric rise appears to be due to book keeping changes and not the
underlying prices of the companies on the index. See story here: https://finance.yahoo.com/news/brazil-bourse-previews-bovespa-index-154100964.html Brazil
The Dow Jones 30 Industrials and S&P 500 are still close to their all time highs.
Here is an informative article I enjoyed about Charles Dow, founder of The Wall Street Journal and the Dow Jones Industrial average. https://www.fidelity.com/viewpoints/active-trader/dow-days-of-summer?ccsource=email_monthly
I continue to look for stocks that have good fundamental financial values, but stock prices near 52 week lows.

Guess (GES) reported quarterly earnings below Wall Street estimates and also a 4.8% decline in revenues. Read story here: http://www.thestreet.com/story/12860235/1/why-guess-ges-stock-is-slumping-today.html?puc=yahoo&cm_ven=YAHOO
GES has good fundamental values, and sorts to the top of the Retail group of stocks in Stock Evaluator when I do a Ctrl-N “Sort on Red Cell count Within Industry”. I found that the March 2015 PUT at Strike of $23 was selling for $2.10 which is an 8% return to me over about 8 months, so I sold this PUT.
See 5 year chart for GES:
Option: Covered CALL
Stock Symbol: NOK
Sell to Open Date: 8/29/2014
Expiration Date: April 2015
Strike Price: $9
Option Price: $.50
Nokia (NOK), I originally bought NOK in March 2011 at $8.50, and since then it went lower than $2 / share in July 2012 due to all the problems in their phone business. NOK announced the proposed sale of their phone handset business to Microsoft in September 2013, and since then, NOK stock has been slowly recovering. The sale finalized in April 2014.
