I play the straddle. The only insurance i have to protect my investment and my sanity in this very volatile stock. I have not been assigned yet and has made and lose pennies playing the straddle. I do not listen to longs nor shorts, I observe the frequency of each group and base my straddle on it and volume of calls and puts. Look at the volume of Feb 16 expiration, call were worthless (nakeds) and puts in the money. That's a classic example of a perfect straddle if not a manipulation, making money both ways.
