#assignment TWTR
Way back in 2014 when I had no idea what I was doing and was losing money being so called “mentored” in options, (but mostly mentored in self promotion) I was assigned 300 shares of TWTR, 200 at 30 and 100 at 32 and down it went from there, this was a decent percentage of my account at that time as well. I sold a lot of options trying to dig out over the years. I only had 1 call sold when it popped in February so I sold 200 shares and rolled a 25 call to July. The shares were called away of course, ending the TWTR saga. All in all I made $64 on TWTR! Maybe not the best use of capital but I didn’t lose any of that money as I was learning, still learning thanks to the gang here. Let’s see, TWTR earnings are Friday hmmmm

A few trades

#Earnings #Rolling BTC $RH 150 puts for 13.65. Sold July 20th 125 calls for 12.40. I’m actually looking for this one to fill the gap. It has tended to do that often after a big rise on earnings. I will add puts to this if we trade lower. I almost never get away from an earnings trade on this one easily.

#Earnings #Assignment #PieTrades Assigned $YY stock when July 6th 110 put was assigned early. Sold July 13th 97 call for 1.25. I’ll turn this into a PieTrade for recovery.

#PieTrades Sold $MU July 13th 53.5 #CoveredCalls for 1.00

I was assigned CRUS through the exercise of a short 45 put. This started as a put spread that went bad, sold the long and rolled the short to June 15, giving me a basis of 40.15, not bad if CRUS stabilizes, on to selling calls. CELG discussion below noted.
