    I think your looking at a buy and hold option trade. Most people who trade options
    neither hold nor expect to be assigned. Many people trade in the middle ground between when the option opens for trading and the day of maturity. To watch this happen pick and option and post VOL and OI daily through the life of the option.

    I'm 67 and started with options long before the CBOE, being from NYC there were a lot of put and call dealers however you had to hunt which dealer for a specific stock and you were tied to that dealer no real fungibility. Back then
    a 6 million share day was rare

    I agree with what you said for stand alone accounts. If however you are trading in IRA"S and Roth you do not have long or short capital gains not is Uncle Sam a
    partner as he only taxes on the dollar value you remove at ordinary tax rates plus penalties if you take the funds to early or incorrectly on distributions after 70 1/2. For those who have a portfolio of stocks you can on average 6% extra per year in premiums alone for each stock. Rolling short calls when done successfully can be highly profitable

    On a long term basis TVM is worthless look at the studies from the 1960
    to see where they thought things would be in 2000. Along came the 80's
    rates and killed the forecast. I was asking both amount and age the normal
    person would retire. In 1976 when I was 30, the guess was retire at 65 with SS and live to 72 years of age. When I got to 65, the government had changed SS to 66 and life expectancy to 77.

    MSFT went public 1986. As a young man how much do you think you will need to retire.

    Don't fall in love with MFST, think what happened to GM. When I was a kid GM was the symbol of America. 40 years later it could get out of it's own way.
    good luck on the rolls

    CONGRATS ON THE BUY.
    My problem is that many act like MSFT isn't going away any time soon.

    Lotus, Word Perfect & Corel were leaders in their field and with in 5 years they
    were also ran's. Office became the standard. Now I'm not saying someone has anything on the drawing board that would kill Office but history has a habit of repeating itself.

    Never fall in love with a stock.

    again great purchase

    If you bought MSFT during most of this century it's a dog. If you bought in the late 1980's your cost is in single digit's. If MSFT went to 20 tomorrow I would still
    have a gain of 150%

    pass me the stock

    Between dividends, capital gains and selling calls against your portfolio
    15% is standard for most stocks.

    The accepted date given for the dot crash is march 10,2000. if any one uses another date we have no reference point to the statement. MSFT
    started south jan 3, 2000 at 118 and crossed 82 jul 7,2000.

    His point is the author is looking at wrong data. As I was reading the article I wondered if someone picked up on the mistake and anil92691 did.
