RCII trades at 12% spread to acquisition offer. Rejection by the board would indicate BoD's (controlled by activist investor) conviction in turnaround and far higher valuation. So hard to see reasons for such spread to exists.

RCII management initially rejects Vintage improved offer, but then after Vintage makes the offer public, RCII starts considering it. Bizarre situation.

I've been writing puts aggressively on Berkshire. My favorite is an $18 premium for $200 strike January 2020 put. Break even price $182...in 2020. Feel pretty good about that one

I'm pretty ignorant and don't trade options myself.

What if there is a health issue with Warren or Charlie around the time of expiration and the equity is way down?

Is this a problem or are you just trading these on a shorter time frame?

Bought a few PDER. Starter position. At least, I should get the quarterly and annual reports now.
