August 17, bought 100 shares at 41.11 and sold a 41.50 call with the purpose of picking up the dividend. I received the dividend and WBA started going down. I sold calls and puts 6 times, called away on a 38c call missing the dividend. I would have rolled except for the Amazon effect. Total profit of $91.75.

Recent run up in stock to $8.66. Details on the CC position established in April are below.
I was assigned short 100 shares of IVXY from an April 17, 25/35 short call spread sold February 27 for 1.65. I sold the long call for 16.20-Yay. My cost basis is just under 43, UVXY is around 51.
I was assigned 100 shares of AAPL from an April 17, 255/260/325/330 IC. It’s in a small account which put me in a margin call. After selling the stock for 241 and the long put I somehow made money, luck counts.
UVXY March 13, sold March 27, 80/90 call spread for 1.64, bought today for .55
SPY March 16, sold April 17, 175 put for 2.33, bought today for .89, thanks fuzzball

Sept. 5 sold an iron condor/ jade lizard for earnings, the short put was at 85, had an 80 put for some downside protection. I closed that too early. Through rolling etc and selling a Dec. 20, 65.50 call, I have a cost basis of 72.25. ZM stock is at 62.28.
#Earnings Sold $HD stock for 220.50.
Profit on trade: +0.38
Trades can work even when they initially fail… if you can carry the stock and hold it through dips. Not advised during a correction but it worked in this environment.
September 3, I sold a 92.50.95 put ratio spread. That date coincided with a decline in SBUX stock price to the low 80s. After a few adjustments I was assigned on a Dec. 20, 92.50 put. My cost basis 87.97 (haven’t done a very good job adjusting this). Today I sold a Nov. 22, 84.50 call for .33.
I don’t even drink coffee.
#earnings #closing #assignment FFIV TWTR MMM
FFIV sold double calendar for 1.00, bought Wednesday for .82
FFIV sold strangle for 2,07 on Wednesday, bought today for 1.34
MMM Wednesday bought double calendar for 1.02, sold today for 1.35
TWTR I will be assigned 100 shares at 38, sold an Oct. 25 straddle for 3.75. Rolling doesn’t bring anything, covered calls will help.
Letting LABU, TQQQ and TNA all be called out tomorrow. All profitable but I am exiting the triple game after seeing the tasty trade research.
Also staying out of earnings as much as I can. My earnings track record is not so good, lost on 8 out of 5 when I decided to stay out a few quarters ago. I will stay in them if I already have #fuzzy on.
Making enough money just doing #pietrades, #fuzzy, #hedges, and Pie trade #optionladder that I can stick with those. May be boring to some, but it is mechanical and it works. 2 accounts hit all time highs the last 2 weeks and both had SVXY in them. 2 down, 1 to go but that was the biggest loss and will take more time but on a portfolio basis I am back above my cost basis so technically all the losses have been covered 🙂
20 months to break even.
Plan not to ever do that again 🙂 🙂
And the hedges will help, see below.
This weekend I say good bye to an old friend, we weren’t friends at first, a very trying relationship, but we somehow worked it out.
In July of 2018 I sold a 76 put as WDC had dropped from around 106. I rolled to 75 and was promptly assigned at 75. Through put and call sales I was assigned 3 more times as recently as June of 2019 at much lower strikes. Option premium as been good, easy to roll, plus dividends made it profitable for my 200 shares to be called away at 55, making around $600.
Thanks to so many of you who have demonstrated how to roll and adjust, making lemonade.

#earnings #assignment AAPL
In December I was assigned shares on 3 different trades from post earnings put spreads as AAPL went from 220 down to 145 from late October to the December market sell off, my timing being impeccable. Fortunately they were put spreads and the long puts provided significant support. I sold the last of the shares after selling covered calls, actually making a little on each set of shares. Whew
#Earnings Sold to close $UAA Feb 15th 21 calls for .16. This was a sad one; bought the #LongStraddle for 2.50… the swings this week afforded opportunities to cut the loss to less than half, but my orders barely missed getting filled again and again. So although I did sell a few for 1.60, the stock ended the week right at my strike… not good for a long straddle!
#CoveredCalls #Assignment $PVTL stock called away via 18 and 19 calls. This was a September earnings trade, was assigned at 22.50 and through multiple rounds of covered calls I’m exiting at about break-even.
#DoubleCalendar Taking assignment of $NTAP stock, cost basis 64.79.
#IronCondor Closed $DECK short 145 calls for 1.30. Was able to exit some at .50 and .20, so overall this trade will be a small winner or a small loser across my accounts. Condor sold for .86 on Jan 31st.
