Hi Guys;

I started with MF Options a few months back and I'm just now coming up on my first actionable closings and I have a question regarding the GES Mar12 $38Puts.

I wrote puts per the recommendation and am up almost the entire amount. I sold them for $2.05 and as of Friday they were at $0.02.

Since the stock at $35.94 is worth less than the $38 strike put I'm assuming that I'm likely to be assigned?

My question is how should I play this?

The other trade question concerns BBY covered calls. I was thinking of rolling up and out to the Jun12 $26call at a net credit of $0.20. Any thoughts on this one?

Thanks for any advice.

What did you decide to do?

Curious in light of the after hours earnings moving the stock lower...

Ed,
By now you may have realized that MFO has its own boards.
However, you found out that "writing" puts at a strike higher than the stock price does not get assigned, but just expires, leaving you with the premium you were paid entirely profit. Congratulations!, and spend a few minutes reading the Options Handbook.
