Of course, a lot of upside could potentially be left on the table if HAS shares really soar, which is why looking at the trailing twelve month trading history for Hasbro, Inc., as well as studying the business fundamentals becomes important. Below is a chart showing HASs trailing twelve month trading history, with the $47.50 strike highlighted in red: see here Considering the fact that the $47.50 strike represents an approximate 5% premium to the current trading price of the stock (in other words it is out-of-the-money by that percentage), there is also the possibility that the covered call contract would expire worthless, in which case the investor would keep both their shares of stock and the premium collected. The current analytical data (including greeks and implied greeks) suggest the current odds of that happening are 79%. On our website under the contract detail page for this contract , Stock Options Channel will track those odds over time to see how they change and publish a chart of those numbers (the trading history of the option contract will also be charted). Should the covered call contract expire worthless, the premium would represent a 0.67% boost of extra return to the investor, or 6.75% annualized, which we refer to as the YieldBoost.

First Week of HAS September 21st Options Trading

At the same time, one out of every three trades take place “off exchange” through so-called dark pools or internal trading channels. The problem with those trades: a lack of transparency. Unlike the New York Stock Exchange ( NYX ), non-public exchanges don’t show what someone is willing to pay to buy or sell a stock. Critics say that allows high speed traders take advantage of both large and small investors. High speed trading firms buy and sell millions of stocks every second of the day.
