Hi Naj,

How can one possibly assess this transaction with any semblance of rationality without analyzing those factors? I'm mystified.

bowing out,


Fair enough.

I think I understand now what XfatOx was trying to point out. The return from the option must bring back gains equal to or greater than the expected returns on the underlying security.

As for valuing specific examples, I was not interested in that as much as trying to understand the value of the strategy. I have used it successfully in the past and the strategy has produced good results for me.
