Q: I know that there is a point in time when LEAPS turn into short-term options and change their names. Can there be any problems with renaming for me if I still hold such an option?

A: Long-term Equity Anticipation Securities (LEAPS) have different symbols than do short-term options. However, as time passes and the options become short-term options, the symbol will change. The symbol change, however, will not affect the value of the options contract. It is merely a cosmetic change and your brokerage firm will make the necessary adjustments. There is nothing to worry about.
