    WOW - options trade already on JUL 12's in size

    Already 817 today at ,10 and 807 had been open.

    Don't know yet if someone was buying back what they wrote or if this is "new business" and they are only gambling .10 that KLIC will be over 12 3rd fri in JUL.

    Usually don' tsee options trades of this size this early in the day. ALso large for KLIC.

      ER is 7/30 (after OE of this volume buy in the title of this thread).

      Second - my personal current take. I'm looking at buying JAN 9's with the winnings from the recent JUL 11 calls. Basically I get a "free" JAN 9 at like 2.25 for each 5 JUL 11 calls I wrote for .70 and bought back for .25. ANd as I've stated the summer I think (hardly original) will be sideways to down. However fall and the January effect (after any tax loss selling at end of year) I generally feel better about every year. So I'd rather own early next year and even late this year (OCT is as late as it goes currently) than write them unless I really didn't care if I got called out of those shares.

      Good luck folks.

      I thought about piggy backing todays .10 volume buy haven't - atleast not yet. That closein stuff makes me nervous. IMO it truely is gambling, but in this case a cheap gamble.
