stock should get a pop after earnings release so hold calls until then but sell right after that, because once you get within thirty days of option expy, the time decay will kill you. You are right, they WILL Expire worthless
As the gentleman above me pointed out, they will (probably) expire worthless -- but that doesn't mean you can't turn it into a profitable trade. Sell them after the earnings pop.
