  • Microsoft Settles With Vringo: Is Microsoft Using Vringo In A Proxy War Against Google? [View article]
    Well, if you think that IV is going to drop dramatically then it makes even more sense to short warrants. If you are certain that there won't be significant events that will increase pps considerably in the next 2 years, then that strategy would work for you. IMO this is far far too risky...

    Can't believe you sold 2015 warrants at a loss. Many things can happen in 2 years. Or you meant that you exited your short position? :) Cheers

  • How Will Judge Jackson Handle Google's Confirmed Workaround?‎ [View article]
    Many of us won't wait for that to happen. I sell on the hype when the stock pops to $6. Will get back in only if management provides information of what they are working on and how the expect to monetize their patents portfolio.

  • Vringo: A Patent Play Stock Ready To Explode Again [View article]
    Alan, I agree with you but there must be something else that we still don't know. I blame Vringo management for this because they barely give any info in CCs. It is now clearerer though that Vringo is a long term play with huge potential IMO.

    Open interest is much lower though. Maybe a lot of shorts closed their positions. That's a good sign too I guess.

    Wow! 1170 in a day that's huge! That's exactly what I'm talking about, they are sooo cheap ($4 per contract) that if pps goes to $4 in a couple of weeks (and assuming IV stays the same), the contract would be worth $14 or so. That's a huge gain. I'm aware it's a risky investment but if it works, it's handsomely rewarded!

  • Can Judge Jackson Still Ignore Google's Work-Around? [View article]
    I agree that pps should increase after a positive ruling. If you recall back in October pps reached a high of $5.93 and then plunged due to JJ's laches denial. I believe that this sort of reactions should work both sides.

    Even if IV goes up the small premium you will get would not compensate your loss if the stock goes up just a bit.

    BTW Hopefully we will hear from MSFT soon!

    Indeed! Thanks. It's amazing how DS makes QE look unprepared and foolish.

    Got burned on May calls. Bought a few June ones just because they are cheap. Loaded with Aug 2013 and Jan 2014. Not interested in Jan 2015 because they are thinly traded so the bid/ask spread is insane. Covered calls would've probably been a better strategy, but not any more given settlement discussions with MSFT and GOOG's case getting hotter.
