Can't you hire 25 engineers at $150k per and get something similar in a year or so?
That's why - I don't even know what "Whatsapp" is - I guess the Zuck thinks it's worth 16B!
If you bought 1 call, I would short 100 shares of NFLX immediately. If NFLX goes up to $450, your call option can cover the shares and you would only lose $8 per share max.

You are right rulebreaker - the stock was down on Friday, probably shorted above $29, covering here below $28, then off to the Hamptons to spend the money.
What everyy MSFT shareholder will say starting next week.
If you had to value this stock without knowing that it closed at $35.44, you'd probably say $28. I have never seen a miss this big without a pre announcement - EVER
