Lillian Seidman-Davis and Michele Skupp, Senior Options Strategists, have a combined 54 years of experience in the options market. They specialize in looking for unusual levels of implied volatility in the options of individual equities. These analyses lead to unusual behavior in both options and stocks, creating long and short investment opportunities. Together, they have developed a unique option volatility analysis that has unearthed a host of takeovers and corporate activity long before announcement or realizations, since these events were foreshadowed by unusual option behavior. They work hand-in-hand with a multitude of clients taking advantage of these and other opportunities. They can construct strategies ranging from hedging, to implementing a view, all while using options efficiently, economically and creatively. Coupled with Miller Tabak's trading capabilities, clients can effectively utilize what Seidman-Davis/Skupp's work indicates, executing options and equity strategies to enhance performance.
