I'm reading Guy Cohen's "The Bible of Option Strategies". He said the limited time before expiration and the steep time decay at expiration month are really working against you. He recommends long call at least six months out or even buy LEAPS if you really want to make a directional bet and sell before expiration month to avoid steep time decay. LEAPS and longer term options are "better value" on a monthly basis (front month vs 12 month option divided by 12). Any thoughts?
