Question from Zack Maenpaa – Hi, long time listener, first time questioner. If you’ve covered it already can you point me to where in case I have missed it. But what is going on at the $15 May (monthly) strike in COTY. Daily size opening transactions for two weeks now? Trying to figure out what they are trying to do here. Sorry if you receive this message more than once. I kept clicking submit on the website and nothing happens. Many thanks. There is the share purchase offer, but thats at $11.65, not way up at the 15 strike.

Question from a Fidelity Customer – I’m thinking about selling covered calls on a stock that my father left to me and I don’t want to sell the shares, is this a good way to get some extra income?
