Tomorrow is option expiration Friday. This stock post is part 2, of a set of posts on the topic. As indicated in the previous posts, certain stocks have option chains on them. They are known as optionable stocks. Tomorrow Friday is an options expiration Friday, and it will be the last trading day for a number of options. Because of something called delta hedging, the stock market indices (and the stocks with options in general) tend to trade around a given price equal to a strike price on the option chain. This phenomenon is known as stock pinning on option expiration day.

We plan to publish in multiple parts the list of stocks that are optionable. One can study the option chains, and the option volume for stock with liquid options, to see the activity on the options and the stock.

Below is a partial stock list of optionable stocks. (Letters D - F).
