#closing #assignment AAPL

Dec. 11, I was assigned 100 shares from a 185/187.50 put spread that was to expire tomorrow. I sold the long put and sold a March 14, 170 call for 2.06. AAPL is a little over 170 so I closed the covered call. I have made $45 after all is said and done from a put spread I had written off as a loser. I closed today because I have a 180/190 expiring Dec. 21. That one will take a little longer to get back to even.
Both put spreads were post earnings trades.
