    OE this friday likely to be unnaturally pushed

    Dave, how are you trading the options? Selling covered calls? Buying calls. spreads, etc. I have never felt I knew enough to trade options successfully.

    In fact I dont even know how to trade the stock. Seem to get whipsawed every time I take a small position in IIVI.

      How you been?

      I made the annual meeting but then missed Ron's presentation the following monday.

      IIVI options are bad really. Spreads are usually too large.

      I actually do much better options trades on other stocks.

      I don't pretend to be an expert.

      Usually I write some covered calls when I think a stock is overvalued.

      I have bought calls for IIVI and actually own some now.

      WIth IIVI often I'll exercise the options BEFORE OE. Otherwise you can have a day like today and loose al lthe premium you paid for the options.

      I figure long run IIVI will always be a good investment.

      Also this time part of the reason I bought options was ironically I have too large of a position in IIVI.

      The past year or so I've been doing more and more options on my favorite trading stock KLIC which happens to be in a MF article today that also has IIVI mentioned in it.
