What makes a stock Optionable?

An optionable stock is one that has options listed and tradable on a market exchange. Not all companies that trade publicly on stock markets have exchange traded options. This is due in part to certain minimum requirements that need to be met, such as a minimum share price and minimum amount of outstanding shares.

Are options available for all stocks?

Trading options on stocks can be used in versatile ways, from hedging and spreading to speculation. Not all stocks, however, have listed options available for trading. You can determine if a stock has listed options by checking with your broker, with an options exchange, or with the options industry council.

What happens if you hold an option to expiration?

Approaching the Expiration Date In either case, the option expires worthless. For marketable options, the in-the-money value will be reflected in the option’s market price. You can sell the option to lock in the value, or exercise the option to buy the shares (if holding calls) or sell the shares (if holding puts).

Can you exercise an option before expiration?

Early exercise is only possible with American-style option contracts, which the holder may exercise at any time up to expiration. The more time there is before expiration, the greater the time value that remains in the option. Exercising that option results in an automatic loss of that time value.
