    Options anyone?

    Looking at breakeven point of various strategies ...

    why would anyone buy a straddle, given the distance the share price would have to move before the breakeven point is met?

    For example, the September 12 32 call and put premium total about $6.

    That's alot of movement for the share price to go before an investor begins to make any money.

    Why would anyone consider a straddle in such a circumstance? (selling a straddle is out of the question for risk consideration)
