Exiting NTAP

#Earnings #LongStock #Assignment #DoubleCalendar
Sold half of my stock for 65.00 and 65.45. Assigned via 68 puts last week… cost basis 64.79. Looking to unload all of it; no interest in making this a longer term holding.

#earnings #assignment #coveredputs GLW

January 28, sold a Feb. 15, earnings 25/30/30/35 iron fly that should have worked, (they all should work of course). I was assigned 100 short shares, basis just under 31, stock at 34. Sold a March 15, 32.50 put for .24.

Final Trades and Expirations

#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.

#assignment JBL Double assignment. September…

#assignment JBL

Double assignment. September 26, back when selling puts seemed to always work, sold a Jan. 18, 27 put for 1.05, Jaunary 4, assigned, January 8 sold a Feb. 15, 25 call for .35. JBL then started going up. I was called away (for an .08 dividend) last night. All in all, a loss of $75.

#assignment AAPL
One of my 2 lots of assigned AAPL had a cost basis of 156 after selling a Feb. 15, 160 call on Jan. 31. The shares were called away, I miss the dividend but I’m out with a gain.

#assignment NTGR Back in July…

#assignment NTGR

Back in July I sold a Dec. NTGR 55 put, rolled it to January, then February, then March. It had become an NS option. I was assigned and also received 198 shares of ARLO, a spin-off. I was assigned at 41.25, even though it was a 55 put. ARLO is going for 3.83, but TDA says I was assigned at 6.93. I’m down about $500 on the two positions. Always something new.


$NFLX 345 and 352.50 calls (Covered)
$TLRY 85 call (Covered)
$AMD 20 put
$WYNN 116 put
$EXAS 82 put

$T 31 put Basis 30.21 Stock at 30. Will sell calls until someone takes it away for the dividend. ;-}

Relax and enjoy the super bowl. You are all CHAMPIONS – thank you.
