Kind of a wild play, bought a couple of IRBT March 15 call contracts on the dip because this thing is 110% institution owned with a lot of shorts trapped from the 2 downgrades.

Completely a short squeeze play, P/E is 42 so there's no fundamentals here. Looks like the squeeze target is $150, but I'm nailing by the end of the week regardless.
Comment: *bailing (lol)
Comment: Added one more contract on the dip this morning. Still a small play since IRBT options liquidity sucks.
Trade closed manually: Sold everything on open, even this looks weak
i m short but i agree with u ... liquidity sucks in options. very difficult to buy or sell at limit price. I added 130 put at 119 and now ran to 130. Waiting for 135 and will add 1 more put

@NQ95, IRBT has nothing to do with the market. It's in a world of it's own with a short squeeze, there's no shares to be bought and idiots keep shorting it. Trading on borrowed shares.

It's a gamble for sure, but a small one.
