You think trying to figure out when the ex date to own and taxes are crazy, trying owning options.. Now can anyone tell me what I will be owning on those. I have a ton of jan 2013 and 2014 calls. I really don't care what people guess because I know the market will work it out accordingly. Should be fun to watch.
I'm in the same situation - have August 12.50 call options. I think I read somewhere here today, that the 'new' price will be considered the combination prices of nct and nrz ... but that's speculation. We'll see.
All that said, I'm surprised the August '13 calls only moved a nickel today.
I am kinda of excited about it. I think we will benefit on the NRZ option price they put it out at, but that is pure speculation. Either way I am excited and will take my chances. Look forward to owning both, especially NRZ. Already bought some at $6.95 yesterday.
