    Also, the calculus would change a bit if you happened to own the underlying shares and you bought them way lower than the strike on the short leg...

    Yes, this is a bear call spread. However, SA is only reporting the action and quoting from ZH, not opining one way or another on whether the investor's position is bullish or bearish. :)

  • Landmine or just regrettable? Taylor Swift fans flock to social media to protest an Abercrombie and Fitch (ANF -2%) T-shirt featuring the phrase "#more boyfriends than t.s." The retailer notes that the item "is no longer available." [View news story]
    Investors should be notified about the move in the shares and made aware of any relevant news that might help to explain said move. That's the goal. Cheers.

  • Former employees allege Bank of America (BAC) gave out cash bonuses and gift cards as rewards for denying loan applications and illegitimately modifying customers' files in order to make them "ineligible for loan modification," Bloomberg says. One "loss-mitigation specialist" claims staff were "regularly drilled … to maximize fees … by extending delay of the Home Affordable Modification Program process" by any available means. "At best, these attorneys are painting a false picture of the bank’s practices," a BAC spokesperson says dryly. [View news story]
    The term "dryly", as it is used here, simply means: "In a matter-of-fact way." As such, use of the term is entirely appropriate and conveys nothing as to an editorial opinion regarding the truth or (un)truth of the former employees' accusations. They say "yes", Bank of America says "no."
