Option implied volatility (IV) on the video game software company Electronic Arts (NYSE:ERTS) rose slightly to 49% on Monday on the news that the company was buying a London-based social network game company called Playfish. Gosh, IV fell back to 40%. Implied volatility is widely believed to be informationally superior to historical volatility, because it is the "market's" forecast of future volatility. Higher the volatility higher is the chance of an upside or a downside on a stock and its option.
