Hi Fools-

I am trying my hand out using options. I purchased 4 different Call options (Leaps) over the last 2 months. 3 options expire Jan 2014, and 1 option expires Jan 2015.

Option 1 Up just over 100% (2015 expiration)
Option 2 Up just over 85%
Option 3 Up about 100%
Option 4 down about 50%

Total all options up about 50%

I feel all the underlying stocks have room to run yet (8 more months until expiration minimum), BUT I do not want to be greedy and lose these great returns. I know that time decay accelerates with about 6 months until expiration and again at 90 days until expiration.

What is a reasonable ROI when purchasing call options??
