VRX

#LongCallDiagonals #SyntheticStock #IRA -Been waiting for this thing to show some signs of life to get in (again) with a long term Whiz style. 2020’s out so going in with a full position.

Bought to Open VRX JAN 17 2020 15.0 Calls @ 4.20
Sold to Open VRX JAN 17 2020 15.0 Puts @ 4.66

Taking the 46 cent credit from synthetic position applying it to the disaster put…
Bought to Open VRX JAN 17 2020 12.0 Puts @ 2.96

This gives a net debit of only 2.50 for the Jan 2020 position. Add the 3 point max downside and get a max loss possibility of 5.50. Based on that, and the 114 weeks remaining in the trade I only need to average 5.0 cents per week in sales to cover the absolute worst case scenario.

So:

Sold VRX NOV 17 2017 14.5 Calls @ .23
