Someone is betting a pretty penny that something is going to happen before Dish's earnings call on the 22nd. A large call contract selling at a premium should not be set aside as immaterial. Call options normally are reserved for savvy investors.
That is a question that MUST be answered by the end of this month? Due to tax considerations, there is no getting around it. The bonds were removed strategically for a reason. Keep in mind that the bankruptcy is still going on. More likely for a short period of time. For the shares to still be trading even with the bonds being removed is somewhat telling. Common sense eventually prevails!
A little more than a month remaining before this saga is over. Either we hear Blockbuster exits bankruptcy quietly as a transformed company or we get liquidated. Simple as that! The 2012's will tell the whole story.
