Funny. You just described the AMD's market strategy.
Someone really wants to see those thousands of $8 options to expire worthless. Others want to buy $7 options back. Either way, the lower it goes, the better for some. Real test will be next week.
$18 is hardly an opportunity to get out. Also, most Chinese people really like status symbols from expensive cars to electronic gadgets. Those who can afford it, will make sure their family has an authentic PS4 or Xbox One in front of that big screen TV. Not to mention many will buy older consoles and games that come with them at significantly reduced prices... this could be a great opportunity for GameStop.
