Wrote BBBY FEB2019 12$ puts for 1.29$. Stock is reasonable cheap if margins stabilize on typical retailer levels (which they did the last two quarters) and these option premiums are so fat its unbelievable. This name is also very hated right now, can`t remember that last time i read so many negative comments and articles on SA.

You havenít seen their stores, thatís why....It feels like itís  dying and Toys r Us 10 years ago. I havenít been to their stores in years, itís totally redundant with Target and AMZN if you have prime. They were very popular in the 90ís and early 2000ís, but then slowly lost their touch.
To be a realist, one has to believe in miracles.

How do you know that if you haven`t been there in years? :)
The financials tell a different story with stable/slighlty growing sales the past 4 years. I wouldn`t shop there either, but my wife wants to go to a similar shop every 3-4 weeks especially in the weeks before christmas. Maybe i am wrong, but i think i have the odds on my side.

Thanks, but that was just luck.

You havenít seen their stores, thatís why....It feels like itís  dying and Toys r Us 10 years ago. I havenít been to their stores in years, itís totally redundant with Target and AMZN if you have prime. They were very popular in the 90ís and early 2000ís, but then slowly lost their touch.

Thanks for your comment, that was the reason to think harder and look again at the numbers and buy some more stock. Critical comments are underrated!

Bought them back for 0.18$ to reduce risk. (because of leverage, but i keep a portion of the stock that i bought with cash.)

Purchased TACT.

I like the odds on their restaurant business and today's departure of a board member (possibly in response to activist letter on 12/18).
