    check out the 121 and 120 puts for today

    I am thinking that someone bought 4,000,000 shares by exercising 40,000 calls. It wouldn't make sense to exercise the puts since the market price (120.34) was higher than the strike price ($120) at the time.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Let's assume that GILD did sell the puts and buy the calls...wouldn't it be fantastic if the stock closed at 119.99?

    GILD would buy 4 million shares from the puts. And, if I were the company, I would exercise those 120 calls as well even though the price is lower than the strike price, since buying it through exercising the options is price and time independent whereas buying it on the open market would undoubtedly drive the price up and would take a few trading days to do.

    Bwhahahahah. This post was so full of flawed logic and disconnect from reality that I just can't help but chuckle.

    You live quite (yes quite, not quit) handsomely on inherited funds...but have found a way to make the Man work for you? Really? That must have been quite an ordeal!

    Wow, you've had jobs on two occasions out of curiosity. Goodness gracious, what a personal journey to brag about!

    Seriously, if you truly don't care about the losses you incur in the market, what are you still doing here on the IMOS board?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
