Jan 14 $20.00 Leaps going for an .85 premimum. Incredable
http://finance.yahoo.com/q/op?s=INTC&k=26.000000If you look at the $26 strike, when INTC is right at $26, you will see that the PUT has more premium than the CALL.Intel trading at $26.061.89 1.91 OCT CALL $262.52 2.55 OCT PUT $26There is a premium difference of $2.52 - $1.89 = $.63 when the PUT is 6 cents in the month.I think you could normalize for the $26.06 by subtracting the intrinsic value from the call and adding the same to the put.The difference would be 12 cents more or $.75. Why does the PUT have $.75 more value than the call?$.21 Q1 dividend$.21 Q2 dividend$.21 Q3 dividendOptions price-in anticipated ex-dividend drops.
Your correct. I have a differnt straregy. I buy leaps vs stock when the spread is small to achieve maximum gains. Works well for me.
