  • Apple: Earnings Option Play [View article]
    I have this trade at a +.11 delta. also lots of premium. nearly $27.00 be prepared to lose a significant amount of this prem. if the stock doesn't move much. that is why in my trade analysis ( not recommendation) I suggest a cheaper strangle (in premium terms ) with a long bias.

    I respectfully disagree with your assessment of the importance of understanding Implied Volatility. Understanding Implied Volatility is the singularly most important part of option trading. Volatility skew is the second most important aspect.

    These option trades ideas are only offered to those who have already made an investment decision and/or have a bullish or bearish bias.

    I try to provide trades for investors with divergent views. Seeking Alpha editors actually encourage a balanced view in the articles.

    If you have a long term positive outlook on AAPL, you should employ options to bolster returns or provide downside protection.

    Options are incredible hedging and income providing instruments. They should be a part of every portfolio.

  • What Apple's Dividend Means For Option Traders [View article]
    Theoretically the calls go down and the puts go up. The difference is $4.855, not 11 cents. The reason why the calls were up on the day was because the underyling was up significantly. They would have been up ( theoretically) $2.485 more if not for the dividend.

    The Jan '13 600 calls went down approximately $2.485 ($71.31- $68.825 = $2.485)

    The Jan '13 600 puts went up approximately $2.37 ($71.40- $69.03 = $2.37)
