Subject: Question re rolling out an INTC put Date: 8/26/2013 10:44 AM

I am in the INTC written Sept 23 puts and it appears possible I will need to roll out again, but we have time, so we will see.

My question is, in rolling out, if we let the time part of the premium get as close to zero as possible w/o having the shares put to me/us.....how does this effect the ROI on the option investment return.

The intrinsic value for the option will be less/underwater, but the time value will be mostly captured. Rolling out far enough will give us new option premium.

So in rolling out the ROI changes and the time in the trade goes up by the amount of the rollout.

So a 2-3 month option trade just gets longer, but still may be profitable. Tying up monies for a longer than planned timeframe.

I think I have it. Thanks
