Remember when 6.66 was a common price for bsx?
I do, and just a day before my $5 calls expire, it heads there again. It's been a long wait, and sold a bunch of $6 calls against my position along the way, but again, a profitable trade.
still around, but got sick of playing with this last spring, and bought the $5 january calls and have been selling the front month $6 calls against them through December. Didn't get rich, but sure was a lot less time-consuming, and worked out well.
