PYPL short puts

Sold to open $PYPL 10/16 170 puts @ 3.80. Stock is up nicely on a really weak day in the market. Delta 27, IV rank 41.

There was a good article this weekend in Barron’s on how Covid killed cash (it was on its way out before all this but the pandemic is just speeding things up). Some interesting takes on how to play it with $PYPL getting the most positive mentions. They also like $SQ $V and $MA among others. $PYPL and $SQ are both up today, not being dragged down by the ties to pandemic-reduced transaction volume that $V $MA have.

An alternative trade: 10/16 170/160 bull put spread for around 2.00.
