JimHave you given any thought to LEAPs in conjunction with Special Situations? Its one of the more interesting parts of the Greenblatt book and I think that LEAPs are not great for some investements but they are very helpful risk management tool in Special Situations which have a wider variety of possible outcomes. Control the downside risk in bearish scenario (SVU) and have a bigger position if the bull case (RRGB) comes to pass.-gunnar
Hi, gunnar,Yeah, I don't tend to use options/LEAPS because of the all-or-nothing nature. But you're absolutely right, they can limit the downside on a stock with a wide swath of possible outcomes. I'll add this to my decision checklist for future choices.Jim
