    To do charity before or after earnings?

    This is from a friend of mine, passing it
    along for some friendly advice, if its not too
    much of a bother to some long-term IBM watchers here:

    He has decided to help a poor patient with some fin. assistance
    for her surgery ... need is worth about 5K, and his present
    situation allows him to do 2K. That means the surgery could be
    delayed until the gap is filled somehow. So he was thinking:
    what about if he buys Feb 195 IBM calls now, and sell it off
    after earnings.. and possibly, he can provide the entire amount
    then by himself. Question -- do you think it will work? Is IBM
    that oversold presently? Or any other pick?
