    For the long haul!

    In order to reduce draw downs with further price declines, try selling short the Jan 2012 15.00 put while at the same time buying the Jan 22.50 call.
    If the price declines to the low 19s this morning, the cost for the combined transaction should be close to a push. If the pps drops further to around 18, selling a Jan 2012 12.50 put would give you a return close to the yearly dividend.
