WallStreetBets Versus The Crackdown

Bear in mind that we used a thousand shares as an example there; the same approach would have worked for larger positions. You'd just add more zeros in the "shares owned" field, and you'd get more zeroes in your net credit. A 10,000 share position in NOK collared that way would have yielded a net credit of $1,000, and so on. 

Heads You Win, Tails You Don't Lose Too Much

Your best case scenario here is a double in your NOK shares in less than a month, plus you keep that ~2% of position value in the credit. Your worst case scenario is a loss of 25%. Heads you win, tails you don't lose too much. Be sure to scan for an updated optimal collar for NOK before placing any trades. Also, remember that we're describing a collar, where you own the underlying shares. We are emphatically not suggesting you write naked calls on this or any other security

You are not victims when you crash the market and screw the poor and middle class and illegally collude to move a stock up. Now you are just as bad as the hedges.
