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:

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.
