    Ha ha, EO’s trying to salvage those 10K 615 puts with selling…all they need is 614.99, let’s call it .97.

    that doesn’t salvage them.  they paid more than a few pennies for them.

    Uh, the presumption is that the EO’s sold the options, not bought them Kloot.

    In my original post, I meant 615 calls, not puts BTW.

    The beauty of selling options is you get a credit, which you keep if the strike doesn’t, well, strike.

    Is there a way to tell if institutional ownership percentage is down due to an increase in retail ownership, or institutions selling off positions?  It’s a 18-19M share difference…..

    To answer my own question

    http://eresearch.fidelity.com/eresearch/evaluate/fundamentals/ownership.jhtml?stockspage=ownership&symbols=aapl

    It appears the institutions have sold off 17.5M shares this quarter. Since the stock price has gone up, it appears retail investors have picked up the slack.  I would thick the institutions would want to be loaded with AAPL prior to the divy ex date.  Those 17.5M unloaded shares represents $46+M in unrealized div’s.  Why wouldn’t they be buying back in next week?  Or is my line of thinking way off??

    Thank you for the information.  Now what does this mean?

    Are institutions waiting for the WTF sale?  Is the 2.65 per share per quarter insulting to the income funds?
