Kansas City Southern Shares Slump After Earnings

Posted on the 24 January 2014 by Phil's Stock World @philstockworld

Traders who snapped up puts on the stock near the open when the price of the underlying was near the worst levels of the session have seen the value of those contracts get slammed with stock well off its lows. It looks like traders stepped in to buy around 300 of the Feb $85 strike puts at an average premium of $1.15 apiece in the early going. At last check, these contracts are changing hands at just $0.30 each as of 12:30 p.m. EST, a near 75% decline in value in just a few hours time.  Similarly, around 165 of the Feb $90 strike puts were purchased near the open for an average premium of $1.97 apiece. The $90 puts are currently changing hands at $0.60 per contract.
