We mentioned earlier this week we have been following the Apple (AAPL, $436.17, down $6.61) “mini” options since Monday’s open we are profiling them in the Weekly Wrap this weekend to see if they are a good way to play the more expensive stocks.  There are only 5 stocks that trade mini options with 5 more coming on board, possibly,  in the next month or two.

We didn’t want to trade these mini options blind so here is what our research has found so far.

The mini options are based on 10 shares of stock and they can be traded directionally or as a covered call strategy.  They can also be used as strangle or straddle option trades. This also reduces the cost of writing covered calls on triple-digit stocks to a tenth of the price and makes playing the short-term price swings in Apple that more affordable.
