Investors considering a purchase of SciQuest Inc shares, but cautious about paying the going market price of $14.67/share, might benefit from considering selling puts among the alternative strategies at their disposal. One interesting put contract in particular, is the May 2015 put at the $12.50 strike, which has a bid at the time of this writing of 60 cents.
