It sounds like you're talking about placing trades before the Approval Date in your first post. Then in your second post you mention NBIX and it seems you're saying to buy Calls after the Date, since you mention the block trades that took place after the drop occured.
Also have you tested using straddles before the date, so you don't have to be right about the direction of the move?
P.S. Also thank to Stan22 for the links, very helpful.
The website mentioned in the link looks promising as well
It's not very wise to blindly take someone's recommendation without convincing yourself first. That way you won't end up pointing fingers.
The fact of the matter is that, with so much at stake, there are irresponsible idiots who take advantage of those who are desperately in need of help, much like the shamelessly opportunistic pitch flaunted by snake oil operators on terminally ill patients for monetary gains.
