    Zounds! $32

    That is exactly what I plan on doing. I am curious as to how they respond around the ex dates and dividend dates. I may sell them before ex date and buy again after.

    • I keep a tracking book on my computer desk and have about 40 trades going and sometimes I snafu. Bought some calls in the wrong month and they expired. Got confused over an exdiv day on another and it expired. Lucky those were only $100 test trades.
      Hopefully I will not make those errors with big money.

    • Options QUESTION:

      I'm just learning options, so that the next SPO I'm ready with options strategy. Looks like you guys are buying calls and I'm wondering why you are not buying bull call spreads instead? Aren't spreads cheaper, lower BE and less risky??? I'm trying to understand the different strategies!

      Any thoughts on that, thanks!
