Hmmm, then, again, maybe not:Here's another piece of information I received:=======================================================================Dear Beth, Thank you for your interest in options and for your inquiry. We wish you'd contacted us before entering this trade -- and you can call us any trading day. This is a twice-adjusted option that you sold. It has a 133 multiplier for premium and strike. So, if you get assigned on the 15 call, you'll receive $1995 ($15 x 133). But, you'll be obligated to deliver the following components: New Deliverable Per Contract: 1) 177 Activision, Inc. (“ATVI”) Common Shares 2) $4.80 Cash* The memo that details this can be found here: http://www.optionsclearing.com/market/infomemos/2005/oct/21113.pdf Basically you'll get $1995 and have to deliver the 177 shares of ATVI (worth about @2277.99) plus the $4.80. The total package is about $2282.79, making the 15 call in-the-money by about 2.88. Remember, if you decide to buy the calls back to close, you'll pay the premium x 133.
