    In other words...the "dividend" cash more likely to be reinvested in new technology and expansion development or acquire until opportunities dry up or growth slows like the other posters mentioned.

    Watch the revenues...

    When earnings become more important than revenues...probably within 3-5 years of that time.

    More likely to buy key tech that compliments the existing Juggernaut.

    Think Pintrest, Occulus and whatever comes next...

    They are not cheap but they make this the "go to portal" for all ages.

    Snap Chat would have been a good bag...oh well...there will be for fun out their for Mark Z.

    Money moving on to other earnings plays...so yes, below 710

    Why is the Jul 24 700 call up only 50%?

    A lot of people retire selling covered calls and many professional investors and hedge funds use time value drain for profit.

    Traders use spreads and long options to leverage.

    People who are not in spreads or are not short options should think twice before carrying a long position overnight. The time value drain can shrink value quickly.

    The fact that you do not care for options probably means you are an investor or in other words lack the knowledge or skill to make money on a short term trade.

    Study my earlier post three hours ago that explains just one of many strategies you can use to profit on a short term move.

    It is a gift

    does not matter if you are long or short...% return is better with options when you are in and out the same day and do not carry overnight as long as you are in the right side...

    If you don't like time value, set up a spread to eat the time value or just sell naked options.

    I prefer long options, because I am faster than most...

    Actually a new one...and in the money...above the previous 52 wk high...I am in the money today...

    The people who went long there are not...

    I have a straddle and a 52 week high that contained the rally, when I saw that, puts looked good...look at the time of my first post today...look at the stock chart and where it went from there...

    I believe I am the winner here my friend unless you are willing to post the time in advance that you bought. (I am a trader...so don't say you bought years ago and are making millions.)

    I put my trade out there...I challenge you to do the same....I will close within 3 days...

    who is pitiful now...

    You decide...

    Here is the short answer that could b useful to most earnings trades...obviously research and discuss with your advisor...

    Because their is high premium "baked into" the option the day before the announcement since both puts and calls are bought up as both insurance for the long and short stock holders or sellers and also premium paid prior by speculators coming into the announcement.

    After the announcement you have more facts and less to speculate on in the near term. Often the analysts will come out pre-market to include their revised opinions. Generally, the market maker will balance the open bid ask based on the buyers and sell market orders and limit orders pre-market and will gap the stock accordingly.

    Since there is less to speculate, the option buyers sell their insurance back at a time value discount. Obviously, if you were on the right side, you may have an increase in total value since your intrinsic value went up.

    In the case of CMG, while it did establish a new 52 week high intra-day, it closed below the previously established 52 week high and also inside the straddle distance from the close. Or, as I like to view it, it was "contained" enthusiasm.

    We are in earnings season, so expect the attention to shift to the earnings that were announced tonight, tomorrow morning and the rest of the week. Shift in attention also means shift on premium since more variables known and less to speculate or insure on. Often, in a "contained" move I have found this could cause a retracement of at lease 1/2 the distance from the high to the open back towards the opening price within 1-2 days after the announcement if it had already tested and failed at the straddle. This does not always happen, but quite frequently. Since options on this stock expire Friday, probably by then.

    So, that would be near 712-713. So I think the 710 puts offer decent value around 1.20 since their will be a premium paid on time value if quick retracement below 720.

    Hope it helps!

    tayrained is saying if you shorted the amount that the puts represent. Options are a way to leverage a move...good or bad with a limited downside risk of zero.

    When people short on margin, they can owe more than their original investment..

    And most shorts like to leverage on margin, so that 12% loss is actually 24% in many cases....

    But again, tayrained was using the example of the dollar amount lost based on the amount you are controlling.

    But, you are correct, if you shorted only with your 10K and no leverage, you loss would be limited to the 12% and commissions.
