that big blip could be short covering at the end not to take into weekend
I agree with you on the call side for the notion it may have a dead cat bounce. SOON as it makes news and everyone starts to upgrade and cause these spikes usually means its the end. THEY run it up to lure people in just likey they did with apple. THEY never completly kill the HEN that gives them constant money but they make a killing from the swings and options market.
I have learned the hard way but to make money you have to sell options calls or puts. BUYING options rarely works out.
