It's hard to know for sure but it looks like some rather large call options got SWAMPED by this quarters performance, the DIV, and of course, the share price.
It looks like they have gone out as far as Sept. to try and cap this price so they don't get SCALPED! GULP!
LMAO.................this is a 55 to 60 dollar stock by years end short of any major market upsets between now and then IMHO..and only IMHO...of course!
Not only has AIG apparently recovered, it seems to be once again, blazing its own trail ! IMHO.......
I like buybacks but it seems to me that management becomes more reserved about the future as they will have to pay more for stock and accumulate less shares for the money. CSCO has a massive program and was never bullish about the company lest they move the stock up.
For some reason the big boys don't like it or they just are taking some profits. After all we did hit a new high for the year in spite of some of our boards comments that the high was in. The high is far from in imo.
