With the long position a week longer it is a much easier roll if I’m wrong.
Positioned pretty well I hope for tonight’s earnings report

Along with my short Puts I have a profit window of 225 to 342.5 not counting premiums.
TSLA has confirmed that earnings will be announced Wednesday. The consensus earnings are -$2.90, with a high and low of -$2.19 and -$3.44, respectively. The mean has trended downward from the last estimate of -$2.89.
Expected Timing: After close
MU sold stock for 52.61 against cost basis of 55.33 for 2.72 per share loss. Took the proceeds and bought a 55 2020 call to create a LEAP calendar. Frees up 40k in cash/margin for other trades.
Now my new cost basis adding in the purchase of the leaps at 10.60 is 13.32. Will sell weeklies against it with goal of decreasing cost to zero at some point. Have 75 weeks left (already have short 55 for next week) so that means only need about 0.17 per week to break even. Anything extra is BONUS.
I may do this more often for #pietrades that move a lot and are taking longer than normal to get back to even but I still want to stay in the ticker. MU has good premiums and want to stay in it but did not want to have 1000 shares tying up so much capital.
May do the same with WDC later in the week.
Will keep posted as to how it works out long term.
