    No is talking about CBA's New Options

    Biffy, if I've done my Black Scholes, BS, calculations correctly, the 19Aug2011 options with a strike price of $7.50 have traded at HUGE premiums to the BS values. The CALL has a 423% markup (last trade = $1.15, BS value = $0.22) and the PUT has a 155% markup (last trade = $1.25, BS value = $0.49). When that happens, writers/sellers win and holders/buyers lose. Makes sense, right?

    Do Option Sellers Have a Trading Edge?

    And with regard to your comment:
    "the only thing this stock will do is go up, so why worry...."

    Famous last words!
    And where does the price go when the bull finally rolls over and dies?
