Follow up: New Weekly Options – On 4 Common Stocks

About a month ago we posted a blog discussing the new Weekly options that were available on stocks for the first time. On June 25th, 2010, Weekly options were released on four common stocks:

AAPL – Apple Computer, Inc.

BAC – Bank of America Corp.

BP – British Petroleum Co.

C – Citigroup, Inc.

Late last week, on July 16th, Weekly options were made available on four more common stocks:

AMZN – Inc.

F – Ford Motor Co.

GOOG – Google Inc.

MSFT – Microsoft Corp.

Weekly options carry the same rights and obligations as standard calls and puts. The only difference is that the expiration time frame is shorter. Weekly options are typically released on Thursday or Friday and will expire the following Friday.
