Froggy, I never buy stocks on the earning expectation. Its a crap shot, and I never good at it. If you want to buy or sell on the earning expectation, buy the option just a day before the earning. More bang for a buck. That's how I would play the earning game if I play. I learned 3 years ago that you never fight the market. You take what the market gives. Never trying to put any hope or ego onto the stock. Like I said before, the hoping in the stock market is a mother of all F%$K up. IMHO, today's closing price will be around $37.50, give or take $0.25. MMs will try to push DECK to the nearest strike price. MMs will never give the satisfaction to the individual option holders.
Jim, I was just feeling you out. I didn't buy on any expectation for next week. I feel that the bottom has been hit and I am now in for the long haul. I feel that the company is very solid and has great products. I have made a decent amount of money here in the last few years and just look at this as a great opportunity for another big hit. Long from here should be a solid play.
