because i also plan on shorting right before earnings,, last year , i went short, bought puts, when it was trading near 33 , and they made announcement the next day , warning,,. i dont want to be without a position, if that happens again. if the stock has gone up , stayed flat , from here until 6/8 . I will add to the position regardless . Also, june options are not available yet.
