    Options (thread continued)

    This new message board format is quite difficult to follow, so I'm continuing our option discussion on a new thread.

    @Gora - Yes, my mistake. I am considering a net-zero trade of the April $17.50 calls and $15.00 puts. If I felt a bit greedy, I might consider bumping that up to the $17.50 puts, but there's no real reason to do so (from a risk perspective).
    I noticed that July options are now available.

    @bart - I've been accumulating RPTP over the last few weeks and if I have an alert if we drop below $4.50 again. Nothing big, but enough to make it interesting. How are you playing that one? Also, been writing calls against FSLR. It's a very lucrative premium...annualizing over 100% if I write close to the current price a month or two out. That will move a dollar up or down depending upon the tea leaves for solar that day.

    • Wrote 15 December $17.50s. This will interesting to see where we are a month from now. We easily move $.50 in a single day, but I'm not sure what the catalyst will be to move us higher near-term.
      I wrote them earlier today which would translate to a 10% total possible return for just over 4 weeks.
      We'll check back on this one.

      I am hesitant to write too much beyond January at this point.

      • Another options month has come and gone. We're about where we were a month ago. The occasional spikes in volume were likely nothing more than portfolio changes from some larger holders.
        The December $17.50s I wrote expired and I am currently short January $17.50s as well. At this point I will probably not write anything until I can get something for the $20 strikes (waiting for Feb options)

        Off-topic - @bart - Missed out on RPTP...the stock came close to $4.50 but never hit my mark so I didn't buy more shares. Did you do anything with FSLR?

        Wishing everyone on the board the happiest and healthiest this holiday season!

    • just a trade...buying on weakness (similar accumulation area as you 445-450)... expect to have opp to sell higher ahead of pdufa . thanks for fslr
