      That was truly a pathetic attempt in fear mongering, Unfortunately for you things are not black and white in the options world.

      Those puts (Sept $80) are way OTM and likely to be a hedge against long shares which traded at the same time those puts were bought (the article does also state that).

      Also the IV collapsed big time for the puts and calls after earnings last week. So Even with a small downward movement in the stock, the put prices are likely to spike due to BIDU's high historical volatility. The trader is also looking to capitalize on this....
