12:45pm (EST) Rambus (RMBS, $18.27, up $0.88) is up another 5% today and is adding on to Friday’s gain of 15%. The stock is up 20% from Thursday’s closing price of $15.09 on word that a settlement is coming with the European Union Competition Commission. The Union would drop its probe and any fines if Rambus lowers its royalty rates for some of its chip patents. By doing so all parties involved in the litigation can move forward. Looks like a win-win for everybody and investors are still hoping for further gains in the stock. The 52-week high for Rambus is $21.87 and it remains to be seen if Rambus can even break $20. Watch these developments; there may be a chance to take advantage of this situation.  The June 18 calls (BNQFS, $0.95, up $0.55) and the July 20 calls (BNQGD, $1.00, up $0.30) are active….
