I hadn't noticed the ticker change from BNY, but 13 April puts at $49.50 last sold for $0.75 according to NASDAQ

And I was the one selling!

boilermaker & Dynamic,

I like your picks. [Isen't there a typo in your post, boilermaker?]

John, There could be but I am not seeing it? I did mean BK, Bank of NY Mellon. Mike

Mike,

Thank you for your elaboration. I got it wrong as basis for my post, and I've now got it, thank you.

Maybe if I open an account that supports options, I could get to like writing out of the money puts myself at prices where I'd be a willing buyer anyway. Getting paid $0.75 for $49.50 strike either means buying at effectively $48.75 or getting $0.75 per share return - close to 2% of the potential position in 9 days. It seems more attractive than a limit order at $48.75 except it can't be cancelled in the event of truly adverse news. For a high confidence stock trading fairly near my buy price it seems like a good way to profit from my willingness to buy even if the desired price doesn't materialize.

Wrote some BK $49.5-strike April 13 expiration puts for $0.75 per share.

I was trying to buy the stock today but it went up too fast!!

I tried to write some 50-strike April 6 expiration puts but missed on those because the price went up too fast and my limit order did not execute.

Surprised at the lack of interest in CHTR at a price significantly lower than the price at which Rutledge and Malone just bought back 12% of the company... Or maybe people who are buying it just aren't mentioning it here.
