Use Options For a Chance To Buy MMYT at a 28% Discount – Forbes

Investors who did not participate in the offering but would be a buyer of MMYT at a cheaper price, might benefit from considering selling puts among the alternative strategies at their disposal. One interesting put contract in particular, is the February 2015 put at the $22.50 strike, which has a bid at the time of this writing of $1.30. That would result in a cost basis of $21.20 per share before broker commissions in the scenario where the contract is exercised. If the contract is never exercised, the put seller would still keep the premium, which represents a 5.8% return against the $22.50 purchase commitment, or a 10.8% annualized rate of return (at Stock Options Channel we call this the YieldBoost).

BBRCs performance has also been strong, up 11.26% year-to-date as of August 5, 2014, compared to 7.74% for the MSCI Emerging Markets Index, said the issuer. Excluding the BRIC nations means BBRC has missed out on epic rallies in Brazilian, Indian and, more recently, Chinese shares. However, the BRIC exclusion also means the ETF has dodged controversy and weakness associated with Russian stocks.
