I personally would hold off on selling puts for next week - given QCOR's history of price manipulation around monthly opex. I'm heavy on calls right now, so I actually bought protective weekly puts (Oct 25) and am reserving cash in case the pattern comes into play again. If it doesn't, well, I'm at peace with losing the money paid for those puts. It's insurance after all.
I generally like making income from selling puts, I just think next week is a risky time to do it...
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Just because one believes in the long position doesn't mean one can safely say that the stock will keep going up in the short term.
Given that the AETNA update is coming in, and likely won't be positive, I'm not selling any puts.
In a rational world the update really wouldn't depress the share price further, because we all already expect what it is going to say, it doesn't change anything, and it implicates a very small percentage of Acthar's market, but I would be surprised if it doesn't send the stock south a bit.
