$S options are priced for a great short strangle opportunity. Black lines represent the break-even points for the JUL19 6/7 short strangle at 4.68 and 8.32, accounting for about a 27% move in stock price by July expiration. With the T-Mobile merger now in an expected wait period due to State lawsuits, its possible that the deal either 1) doesn't happen at all, or 2) happens later than July 2019. If the deal DOES happen before expiration, then the stock price jump's effect on the strangle would be negated by crushed implied volatility
. Margin requirement is obscenely low due to a stock price under 10 - it would just not make sense to play this!
