In current flat market, there are few events which will cause high value stock with a volatile price movement. Like last week, goog dropped 13 point because of big shares lock up expiration. Goog's Feb, $200 put has a triple profits in three days. On 11/18/04, my purchase of KMRT's Nov. 115 and 110 put all have 500+% gain the next day due to CNBC downplayed KMRT merger with Sears. Earning play is also very important. Especially for this week, option has less premium compared with the stock price. Using option to speculate a high priced stock volatile change before, or after the earning report is a very good method. I want to look interested persons to form a team to do research, or to communicate idea to play options. I don't play straddle since the gain is so small. I limited my money in every position to control the loss. Any big gain can offset tens of option loss. An interested person can post his (her) option view or idea here to help each other. Since the time is so important, I hope any person can detail his idea including when to buy and when to sell. For example, PIXR has expected good earning. But the best sale time is before the earning release. Fortunately, I did that and kept my profits.
