83.55 Sell To Open (STO) McDonalds Stock 5 Naked Puts 19JAN13 $82.50 put strike for 1.88. (Status: expired)
Comments: I think McDonalds Stock is well valued at $82.50 and with the put premium of $1.88 my cost is reduced to $80.62.
I would accept assignment of shares at $82.50 and buy shares lower if needed to reduce my cost and then follow the same course as the trade above, namely sell the shares on a bounce.
