The common stock on MPG has run 35%+ from $1.70 in early June to $2.30 on 7.18. The $2.50 calls for all expiration dates have shown no activity during the same period. It would seem that as the common approaches the $2.50 strike, valuation and pricing of the calls would reflect that by most options valuation methods. Irregardless of long or short positions, does anyone have a perspective to explain why the options have not begun to move along with the shares?
You are probably asking about July 2.50 call options? As the stock price has risen, the time portion of the option has evaporated. NOW, at 2.35, the option is still not worth much because there is only one day left of its life. Make sense?
I have been following the Jan 13 $2.50 calls...they have been steadily rising along with the stock price, from no bids of course when the stock was at 1.7 to a nice .30 bid and .35 ask as of today...its been pretty linear over the past few months...good open interest as well...see ya at .50 bids when the stock hits 2.7!
