    Users of this report, please be cautioned that a computer analysis does not know if a company has agreed to a takeover offer and if the drop in volatility is caused by this change. We do a great deal to avoid these stocks, we can miss the announcement of merger or acquisition. Users must always do further "homework" after seeing the items on this list to ensure that 1) the indicated option prices are accurate at the current time, and 2) that there is not some fundamental reason, such as a takeover, why these options appear to be inordinately cheap. Remember that something that looks "too good" is probably not real – there is no free lunch on Wall Street.

    Finally, any individual straddle shown below can be analyzed with the instructions shown in the first pages of this user guide.
