The two latest picks in my deep-in-the-money options-picking system have made it onto my scoreboard - both of them big tech stocks. On Friday, we put our money down on Microsoft (MSFT), while an opportune price drop in Hewlett-Packard (HPQ) on Monday let us place our bets that this stock will rebound soon for a quick cash-out.Volatility has pushed options prices up this year, keeping us out of a few of my favorite picks, like Caterpillar (CAT) (Jan. 7 and March 4) and United Technologies (UTX) (Feb. 18 and March 6). But the recent four-day rally gave us an entry point with my latest picks.
