    There are a lot of details to work out, but this will be a good deal for BUD and great deal for STZ if it is approved.

    With the prospect of another delay, it may be time write another batch of put options to take advantage of elevated premiums, this time expiring in April.

    If they were to expire, you'd be left with premiums equal to 3.6% of your committed capital scot-free--not a bad return for one month.

    Given yesterday's news, what are the odds those April puts will expire out-of-the-money? :)

    Not 100%, but probably well over 95%. 98%? 99%? Somewhere around there.
