I bought some calls yesterday and AAPL went up $2 today so I sold half.
Mine are good until 5/15 so I have plenty of time to exercise, and hoping to see AAPL continue to move up for the next 2 weeks.
They're different breed of animals, dude.
AMZN, NFLX, TSLA, GOOG are known to gap up or down big time when earnings report. On the other hand, APPL does not move big but gradually keeps going up
If you're an option player, then yes, it sucks. But on the other hand, NFLX, AMZN, TSLA, GOOG charge $15-20 premium above the strike price on calls & puts options ... where as APPL only charge $2. That's why you don't see BIG jumps like the other stocks.
Don't worry, buyers will step in. As long as they can eventually sell them higher than their buy prices, they should be happy.
