I'm a rookie at options, and need advice. I have puts for December 22 on Microsoft and on National Oilwell Varco. In both cases, the stock price has dropped below the price where I can break even.

My questions: Should I cut my losses and get out of these puts, and if so how? Or should I let them take their course and acquire the stocks for their dividends or future growth?
