FYI lunch guy, I own several thousand shares (maybe a lot more than you) of TSM and what rabbit and I were discussing was related to writing call options.
If you bother to look it up, you'll see the low volatility/volume of all options. And the fact remains that for a call writer, $2.5 increment for strike prices makes things even harder.
guyinsouthcal, why do you 100 share guys feel you need to post each day? You could have sold TSM for a profit all day long with your buy-in price was $12.44. 10M or 14M shares/day is not a low volume stock, and your shares won't move the price anyway. You need to sell and buy a more volatile stock that has more banter for you on the Yahoo boards.
