Lol - Kool-Aid Market - "If you are a rare breed of investor who has not yet drunk the Kool-Aid of the momentum crowd, you may be thinking about risk in Virgin Galactic. Well, space is so huge and the opportunity so big, how could there possibly be any risks?
• The volume of options in Virgin Galactic has skyrocketed. Implied volatility has risen so sharply that the old fogies won’t touch them. But investors chanting the new mantra have stars in their eyes. They have never heard of implied volatility.
• Of course, valuation is no problem for Virgin Galactic. The reason: It’s not constrained by anything other than imagination. There are a lot of people with money; for them paying $250,000 for a flight is pocket change. It gets even better because the deposit required is only 50% to secure a seat. The company has already sold 600 seats.
