  2. Of coarse they will, the market will jump up in the after market, the gap up all thru out July, then move to the sidelines and get some good fixed yields now over 5%... and wait for this fall.

    No, but it will get close to the strike price.... i tend to buy way OTM calls and make my money on the appreciation of the option over a short time frame (ie, aapl, rim, did the same thing many times)

    It's a risk obviously!

  4. Hey JAZZ, the aa july calls high premium, you need a big move, more than 1 day to make some coin -- buy more if earnings are good tomorrow @ lower price. imo. good luck
