This could indicate news of a 5-1 stock split along with the larger dividend. Somebody knows something to buy
that far-out of the money calls.
Don't read too much into it. The volume can be either open or close. You need to wait until tomorrow to look at the open interest to know what the volume really means.
It indicates that they like losing their $$$$.
how much did they pay? Could just be a cheap long shot bet
looks like a $6,000 bet.
option buyers, puts and calls, love throwing their money away...... Its a popular thing to do and appl is the most popular place to do it....
The 5-1 split alone would power AAPL shares to $500 easily.
wouldn't it be more like 80 if it split? dippy.
it could be some one just ijust "closed" these positions and to sell the future calls...
Wow look at those bullets on the in-side bid That looks like short covering.
Short-side ECN's Edge,Bosx, and Bats have move to the top on the bid and ask.
