Most American stock options contracts will consist of 100 shares.
There will be some exceptions, due to stocks that have split, but 100 is the norm.

Really? Rolleyes after 90 minutes that nobody answered your question? 90 minutes that most people are out to lunch, or in meetings during? I sure was.
90 minutes that you could have spent on Google getting the information in the first link found from searching "what is an american option contract".

I'm all for helping. But spoonfeeding the lazy - I'll pass.

spoonfeeding the lazy, don't go assuming things u don't know jeff. I am obviously asking questions because either searching and reading articles off wikipedia, and investopedia that have clarified stuff i was confused about in the explanation in this forum i was still unsure about contracts.

if ur not interested in helping simply don't reply, and don't waste space on the forum with useless remarks, u can post those in ur 240 forum. This forum is obviously used to share information and opinions about stocks. JW u being a member for almost 2 years, are all your 143 posts targeted towards people that are asking questions to improve their knowledge of stocks because if they are maybe you should go bash elsewhere.

on a positive note
Thanks for the help options4me, i was searching everything under options in general, i'll read more about American stock options and contracts.

AAAgent,

There's a good option section here on HSM. I recommend you check that out. It'll answer a lot, if not most, of your questions.

An option contract is an option contract. For 100 shares, except in special (read above) circumstances. American option just allows you to excercise the option whenever, european is always on expiration date. So, American options are more valuable. There are a handfull of other options. You can Wiki "Option Style" to read about those.

As for posting about what you don't know - the SN is from 8 years ago, I've just always kept it - never taken anywhere and easy to type.

And.. if you weren't so averse to searching for your own info, you could check and read the contents of my other "143" posts. I won't spoonfeed that to you, either.
post #110 of 415
For anyone wanting to gain some basic info on options, then just send them to my thread to read the first 40-60 posts.

I try to make it simple to understand rather than the MUMBO JUMBO and all the really technical jargon that just goes over the head of most readers...if they're like anything like I was when I first started reading.

So check my signature for the link.

Good Luck,
JROCK
