Wow, congrats Jim!! What a great time in your life.

Thanks for the response. I understand why and how the LEAPS are converted. What I dont understand is why they arent all converted at the same time and continue to be quoted. If you look at Yahoo Finance here:

http://finance.yahoo.com/q/op?s=BAC&m=2007-01

This shows the jan07 BAC calls and puts, which were converted on June12th, you can see that both vba abd bac options are still being shown. For example, look at Jan07 52.50 puts (BACMX and VBAMX) the VBA should have been converted already, right? This two options are the the same puts, but since one hasnt been converted it trades at a premium. Why hasnt it been converted? Is this just a yahoo finance bug?

Thanks and congrats again,
Kyle
