They look cheap 2-3 years out. I am hardly the only value oriented guy owning AMZN.

Bought some Verizon and GM LEAPS recently. VZ LEAPS are very attractive, I was able to get 10% OTM 2 years out at 17% volatility. I'd love to buy more if VZ happens to fall double digits.  I'm now waiting to increase my stakes in Toyota an Verisign IMOS and Liberty Global.

I've been buying BRK for the dividends and APPL for the coming disruptive innovations.

I can't find the 2015 LUK puts listed through Interactive Brokers "option trader".  The oldest ones listed are Dec 2014. 

How/where did you find them?

Re LUK 1/15 puts:
They do show up in Think or Swim (TDAmeritrade), but are "non-standard"

09:22 me: get a msg when I try to trade these that they are "nonstandard"?
09:22 me: .LUK2150117C25
09:25 p.espinosa: hi.  the reason they are non standard is that upon exercise, the LUK Jan15 options would deliver 81 shares of LUK instead of the standard 100.  non standard adjusted options such as LUK Jan15's can run into liquidity issues, as traders normally just trade the standard option contracts
09:28 p.espinosa: the non standard split adjusted options need to be priced off of this:  LUK stock price x .81
