About This Stock Option Strategy
As the implied volatility runs around 100% it seems like the demand and volume is generally around the 30-45 day time frame. Seeing that Virgin Galactic (SPCE) is aiming to be the first civilian flight company to reach out space, I am seeing a huge outcome in the future.
Specifically I looked out at around the 500-600 day time frame for any long call setup, and usually look at around the .80 Delta and pay no more than 50% of the contract compared to the actual position. Meaning if I were to just be able to buy 100 or more shares of the stock itself. Thus, the contract should never be equal to for the same price as just buying shares of. This makes it easier to sell contracts 30-45 days, and in hopes to pay the long contract off before expiration.
For this company however, you will be paying around 70% for the price of the shares, versus my normal rule of no more than 50%.
