    OT: AMTG

    OK, guys...I'm trying really hard to understand options...I've been getting really good help on this board. I've just been looking around and I found this situation, right now...AMTG, x is end of month. Today's close = 22.48. Sept 20 option closed at 1.55. So, is this saying that people don't think this stock will stay above 21.55 next week?

    Thanks again

    • Let me try to answer that...(I know I asked the question, but I've had a new thought since...tell me if this could be right).

      The current bid price is 2.30, current ask 2.75...seems appropriate for stock price, but last trade is 1.55. Yahoo say volume = 25, so that means some options traded today, right, but maybe not after the stock price went up so much.

      The problem I see with this is the stock looks like it opened up a buck and pretty much stayed there all day,...so I'm still confused.

      Answers???
