They'll let it go up when it'll do the least damage to them (the market makers and option writers). That being said they can't keep it down forever, so eventually they're going to have to choose a month and not sell many CALLs, only PUTs, and let it get some of this pressure relieved.
Duh having sold the now out of the money puts and the price having gone down they can buy the shares back CHEAPER, and then again LESS the premium they got for the puts. Same way only the discount is more this time. They're paying LESS for the shares than if the PUTS would have been executed.
No, it was 555, you forgot to take both PUT and CALL options into account.
You can add 20% to the top 1% and it wouldn't make nearly as much difference as adding 5% to everyone.
Like it or not the top 1% though they may have a disproportionate share of the wealth are also responsible for a disproportionate share of America's economic growth, a baby we don't want to strangle in the cradle.
When the only type you carry is perfection why create more types?
I said years ago the ideal portable electronic device, until we can get rollable film computers, was a flat sheet of metal and glass that had as few moving parts as conveivably possible. Apple listened. Thanks dudes.
But I DO know the rhyme and reason, and it has nothing to do with weakness in the stock, except insomuch as someone with enough shares can create a brief aberration in the price, generally to manipulate options expiration.
Of course they'll need to buy one of my quantum printers . . .
Far superior to elemental printers its simply assembles the atoms from fewer base materials than atomic printers, which require over 200 separate materials feeds, the quantum printer requires only a relative handful.
Coming to a store near you soon, but only sold through Apple along with my warp field enclosed photonics based processors operating on spread frequencies for higher bandwidths, running OS X Federation.
Look at the weeks option spread. Look how happy the option writers will be the closer it is to 555.00
Gander at how many shares are on the line and you'd see how profitable it is for them to kick some chairs out from under people when the minute to minute volume is low.
Ahh ok, I saw the 50% reduction part, but I've never known anyone with a meds expense that was in the thousands of dollars a year unless they were on death's door.
What from a $20 copay to a $10 copay? The BIGGEST thing seniors got out of the ACA is exempted from the exchanges.
There isn't one, discount Apple time, great buying op. Added some options for next week already. If they're just going to GIVE it away, who shouldn't?
