    Put trades today

    Don't know if this affected todays price decline, but someone closed out 561 May 35 Puts. There are still another 500 or so still open. Not sure how much a market maker can do to hold down the price to allow the sale of these puts at a profit, but nothing would surprise me. 561 puts is equal to 56,100 shares.

    • That was me rolling them out until November....LOL I have sold of the money puts for 2 solid years and made a fortune. This stock was obviously undervalued so when it was 18 I was selling 22.50's 4 months ahead and when it was 21 I was selling 25's and have done it all the way up. Insanely profitable but now with the company having its head jammed up its own #$%$ I am just rolling these out until i can see a pop and cover them. The company is extremely well run and very profitable but clueless in terms of how to promote themselves with analysts and protect their shareholders. I was a huge supporter of this stock and probably did more to support it than the company itself but I have lost confidence because of their arrogance and naivety of the way the market actually operates.
