    • Hey darb9999,

      The real key is that the option buyers will pay $1.80 for this right to buy your HIMX shares at $12. So, that is over 15% of downside protection while providing a potential 33% profit over 8 months which is around a 50%/year return on investment.

      While you potentially give up some upside, this is a great leveraged investment.......15%% downside price protection while returning a potential 50%/year return.

      I am amazed more people don't buy tens of thousands of shares and sell the calls.
