It brings me great joy that alternative energy is obliterating O&G stocks, performance-wise (at least in the UK micro-cap space in which I operate).

My key holding in the sector (and 2nd largest in my entire PF) is #SAE @simecatlantis at 11p average. But it's brilliant... 1/4 see the likes of #ITM #AFC #PHE #EQT achieving dizzying valuations.

#Options vs #Futures

Conversely it is OTM when the underlying stock is trading below the strike price
