I'm thinking of buying some call options on a company that I think highly of in an effort to better leverage the money I want to invest.

From the messages I've read on these boards, however, it seems most people use screens (which measure momentum/volatility) to help them pick underlyings. Is there something wrong with the way I am approaching my underlying choice?

Also, on the Yahoo options page, I notice that for Jan '01 leaps, there are 2 options listed per strike price. Could someone tell me what the difference between those 2 are?

Thanks for your help.
