Clearwire (CLWR) loses 11 cents to $2.15 and a Sep 2 – 3 (1X3) ratio risk reversal tredes on the stock, 2700X. Looks like 2700 Sep 2 puts were sold at 40 cents per contract to buy 8100 Sep 3 calls for 35 cents. The position, which looks opening, comes despite headlines the Google is looking to sell its entire stake in the company for $1.60 each. The stock is off 53 percent over the past 12 months and came under pressure on 2/16 after reporting a huge fourth quarter miss. So, today’s combo seems to be a somewhat contrary play on the Bellevue, WA wireless company.
