    ABBV calls

    I owned 6,000 ABT pre spinoff. After the spinoff I sold the ABBV and bought an additonal 4,000 ABT. After ABBV rose in price yesterday I was kicking myself for not buying cheaper and then foolishly buying 2,000 shares yesterday at 34.50 and 1,000 today at 33.95.. This currently seems like the wrong move. But then I checked out the calls and they seemed very cheap and I was able to buy the Aug 2013 30 calls at 4.15 which seemed like a very small premium. I'm tempted to sell the common and buy more calls inspite of losing the dividend. Does anyone have any thoughts on the ABBV options?
