Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) Pessimists Pick Up Put Options (SchaeffersResearch)
The shares of Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) are up 2.1% at $13.78, erasing an early deficit. In the options pits, meanwhile, traders are gambling on the BlackBerry maker to resume its recent downtrend, with speculators scooping up June-dated puts. So far, the June 13 put has seen more than 10,400 contracts change hands on open interest of just 7,616 contracts, pointing to an influx of new initiations. Nearly two-thirds of the puts have crossed at the ask price, hinting at buyer-driven volume. By purchasing the BBRY puts at a volume-weighted average price (VWAP) of $1.25, the buyers will make money if the stock breaches $11.75 (strike minus VWAP) — in territory not explored since mid-January — by options expiration on Friday, June 21. However, should the equity remain north of the strike, the most the buyers can lose is the initial premium paid for the puts.
