Please consider the following scenario: Company XYZ is currently trading at about $30 /share. I expect the stock to appreciate substantially - to perhaps about $50/share â over the next couple of months. I am considering buying options on the stock as it would give me much more leverage than purchasing the shares outright. Would I be better off buying the lower priced (Out of Money) Calls or the more more expensive At (or near) The Money Calls? The cheaper Calls appear to offer the best potential for price appreciation. However, the hefty spread that Iâll have to pay â buying and selling â would take a much larger chunk (as a percentage) out of any gains on these cheaper Calls. I would appreciate any suggestions/remarks/opinions from experienced options traders (& others). Thanks.
