I've heard that supposedly in the past that selling/writing options has fared better than buying options. (The recent "ansbacher" thread had similar implications in it.) Has anyone seen any actual statistical studies/numbers to support this? (Which stocks were observed? Was it that the sellers actually earned more money -- or just earned more often? etc.) If this idea is true, then mostly I'd like to just roughly know: how much better has selling been? So does anyone know anything more about this?
