      • wrong. I have a strangle on and my puts are making money- Slightly more than my calls have lost. If I had bought puts only I'd be up 14% in a few days. As it stands, I am barely up. The straight put buyers could have taken 10-15% profit the last 2 days- but they'd have the exposure of the unthinkable idea that Yang actually wants to sale the company( a joker thought).
        Any basic idiot knows that when the MSFT offer was turned down, Yang's plan was to come back and save the beleaguered company like Steve Jobs did.
        One problem exist. Yang is not a Steve Jobs. That might be a problem. Will he wake up and sell? Probably not.
        It is not about you or I. It is about him and the pawns on the board proving their extraordinary value. Let's hope they prove it or fail miserably. Either way makes money.
