Call buying with a 2% increase in volatility to 29 for the June 17th $92.50 strike price I interpret that traders are expecting a BIG move. From my vantage point, I think it will be to the upside. $94/share needs to be reached for those holding to break even. Strangely enough, a heavyweight trader friend of mine called me to tell me he thinks FB will hit $97 a share sometime in mid to late May. If we get out of this market malaise, and suddenly get into rally mode in late April around earnings thru May, that could help as well. Could we see FB touch $100 before the June 17th expiration??? I'm beginning to think it's possible or at least at $97, we'll get close.
Can you explain this? Not experienced in trading options. Thanks in advance:

Arty u schmuck. See u lower? Quite the contrary. Better sell the sailboat to pay for your Lake George home that is more under water by the minute. Laughingstock.
Wwwtimewarp-looks like your call for $76.90 might be realized. How much fun next week ya think? F8 should kick this anemic share price to new 52 week highs? I'm thinking $84.23. A resistence point. Your take?
Ok Zuckerberg, you said you'd talk monetization when it reached 1 billion users. Well, here we are a lot earlier than I'm sure even you expected. Earnings in a little less than 7 weeks. Better come up with the monetization numbers cause I'm just Joe Retail. Analysts are going to hold you to it!

Only has negative comments about FB. We need objectivity here. You can't be objective, get lost. Buh-by arty.,..
And what's your response to so many other institutional buyers who bought? You have a negative answer for anything to do with FB. WE HEARD YOU OVER AND OVER AGAIN. Now run along.
Art you are old and confused. "See you lower" will be on your tombstone when you collapse and die from the rip your face off rally coming at earnings in less than 7 weeks.
$77.26 came and went - so now where do you see our beloved FB and its share price headed to? Could those options at $80 come into play? Could that bring the shares back to $80? Your humble opinion is requested! ;-)
What happened in the past doesn't necessarily repeat itself. You're posts wreak of grand standing. You want it lower so your ego insists that that's where the share price is headed. It's funny, you just recently appeared on this Board. And I'm sure as pie you'll be long gone
the day FB hits new highs and breaks this trading range it's been stuck in for a year. In the meantime, enjoy yourself. But there's going to come a day when mgmt decides to talk about the monetization of their new businesses like WhatsApp and Instagram and Oculus Rift and video ads and 20 of their other companies and watch what happens. There'll be a rip your face off rally cause the longer the stock is held down, the more violent the breskout will be.
