    • Learned something over the years. Baring a major catastrophe like losing 50% of its value, you're better of buying actual stock on margin than buying options for the simple reason that the short term vig on the margin is FAR less than what the option underwriters are going to take from you, and you can end up with just about as much leverage versus the in the money calls, if not so with a wild gamble on out of the money calls.

      And above $11 I'd not call this a STRONG BUY, I'd call it a BUY if you have no position, and a HOLD for people who already have a significant permanent position.

      Sentiment: Hold

    • Break out the salt and pepper. Those calls will need some when you have to eat them at expiry.....
