Baxter had a nice jump in stock price the last couple of days closing at over $86 yesterday. We were short Aug 28 $83 and $83.50 calls. Plans were to roll the options up and out (diagonal) today and hope the upward momentum continued. Stock goes Exdiv today with a dividend of $.245 which we intended to capture. Made a mistake not rolling up to “out of the money” strike price yesterday and lost the dividend ($367) as a result.
We may replace the position today. Baxter doesn’t have the volatility (lower return on covered calls) but it pays a solid dividend and is a good core healthcare holding.
$UVXY 32.5 put. Better sell those shares first thing Monday #Crushed
Never leave home with an expiring trade
$SPX 6/5 3160/3180 BECS. I had a conditional order placed using Schwab platform. If $SPX bid is 3150 than close at market. Did not fire. Schwab says $SPX has no bid and my order could not work. I said it was their platform
that allowed the trade. They said I would not win in arbitration. Live and learn, I hope.

$AMZN BTC 9/21 1800 call at 116.80 BTO 8/6 at 65.62 Not around all day and got clobbered at EOD. Fortunately I have earned an MOB (Masters of Option Bistro) degree and sold 22.84 of calls against the long calls (rolling often) Thanks to all the Jolly rollers who taught me that aspect.
