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.

#Earnings #Assignment On Tuesday I bought $PNC Jan17/Jan24 160 #DoubleCalendar for .50.
Stock dropped too much so trade was a loser. Assigned last night on the puts at 160.00.

#assignment #earnings STT
October 17, I sold a 55/65 strangle. I rolled twice and inverted to January, still was assigned on the short call argghh. The short put had some profit in it so I closed it. I’ll be dealing with this for a little while.
Happy New Year trading friends!
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.
Nov22/Nov29 237.5 #DoubleCalendar bought for .82 on monday Nov 18th
#Assignment on stock for 237.50 on the 21st
Sold Nov 29th long puts for 18.20 on the 21st
Sold stock today 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.
#assignment #coveredcalls UBER
I was assigned 100 shares of UBER on a Dec. 36 put, first sold Aug. 9 and rolled 3 times.
Sold a Nov. 22, 27.50 call for .40, cost basis is 33.53. I guess I’ll stop using LYFT.
#assignment #earnings TWTR
Following a trade that goes against what I am comfortable doing, sold an earnings weekly straddle along with a Dec. strangle, I was assigned at 38, no premium in rolling. I sold a Nov. 1, 31 covered call, cost basis is now 34.25 with stock at 30.
#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 Sold some of my CSX stock at 71.50. That amounts to a .16 profit on a losing trade. Will hold the rest for further recovery.

#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 #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.
#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.
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.
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.
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.

Will sell calls and hang on to stock for at least one dividend round.
#closing #assignment WYNN
I was assigned this week on WYNN, after selling a Jan. 18, 113 call and selling the long put my cost basis was 115.
WYNN has pushed above 115, I closed the position to avoid assignment costs, didn’t want to roll with earnings next week, have another 100 shares assigned at a higher cost basis, WYNN is a big mover, out with a loss of just under $200.
#assignment Again WYNN
Assigned on a Jan. 18 120 put, cost basis of 116.62 after selling the long.
#coveredcallcampaign Sold Jan. 18, 113 call for 1.61, bringing basis to 115.
I’ve been traveling some, watching the carnage and getting assigned on many ITM put positions, turning me into a #coveredcalls guy.
From the correction, I involuntarily own shares of AAPL, AA, AMAT, AXDX, KORS, M, MAT, MRO, NKTR, SLB, T and X. You hedge fund managers can start a buying spree on any of these.
Denny’s still won’t go down.
#assignment yet again AAPL M
Assigned on AAPL, knew that would happen, basis is 174, sold Dec. 21, 170 call for .68
M assigned at 39, basis of 36.28, M at about 31
What me Worry
Apparently someone thinks I want to be assigned on ITM puts. Assigned on a 55 put, cost basis is 53.50, KORS currently at 38.39, think I’ll have a COORS or two.
#closing #assignment AAPL
Dec. 11, I was assigned 100 shares from a 185/187.50 put spread that was to expire tomorrow. I sold the long put and sold a March 14, 170 call for 2.06. AAPL is a little over 170 so I closed the covered call. I have made $45 after all is said and done from a put spread I had written off as a loser. I closed today because I have a 180/190 expiring Dec. 21. That one will take a little longer to get back to even.
Both put spreads were post earnings trades.
I already owned 50 shares in the copper miner (copper is important to batteries, solar and wind power so the price can only go up-riigghhht), assigned on a 40 put I’ve been trying to roll, cost basis of 151.667 shares is 41 after selling a Jan. 36 call.
#assignment AAPL #coveredcalls
Assigned 100 shares at 187.50, from a spread, sold the 185 put at 16.30 for a cost basis of 170.53. Sold Dec. 14, 170 call for 2.06. AAPL currently going for 168 and change.
#assignment #fuzzy SLB
Feb. 16, sold a Jan. 18, 2019 65/67.50 as part of a fuzzy. I was assigned the 67.50 yesterday. After selling the 65 put for 22.50, figuring in the worthless 67.50 long call, and all of the short call sales ,the cost basis is 44.26.
#assignment again X
Assigned on a 35 put, originally sold in May and rolled, cost basis of 31.37. Sold Dec. 7, 24.50 call for .28
#Earnings #Assignment Closed remaining $Z stock, selling at 34.90. Cost basis 32.55. Waited for a couple weeks for stock to return to profit zone, and exited all this week.
#Earnings #Assignment Sold more $Z stock at 33.50. Assigned with cost basis of 32.55.
#Earnings #Assignment Sold to close $Z stock for 32.80. Was assigned with a cost basis of 32.55. Sold a 4th of my position now. Will look for higher prices near the close or tomorrow to sell more. No desire to be long or sell calls.
Assigned on a Jan. 50 call, cost basis of 47.39, rolled this out last June.
I’m starting to get a little tired of this, assigned 100 shares of NKTR from a Dec. 60 put, cost basis of 52.61.
#Earnings #Assignment #CoveredCalls Sold to open $Z Nov 30th 30 covered calls for 1.55.
I’ll be assigned the stock via 34 puts this weekend. This sale will put my cost basis at 31.00, so if called away it will be a 1.00 loss on the trade, which is okay, but hopefully I can get one more call sale in to profit.
#Earnings #Assignment Assigned at 34.00 on only one of my 13 puts on $Z. Cost basis 32.55. The rest will be assigned tonight unless I get an exit today. No big worry with a low stock price.
Early July I sold a 75 put, rolled it on the way down to Oct., assigned last night, basis of 73.70 grrrr
#assignment #earnings SKX
April 19, sold a May 37/47 strangle, SKX went down big, rolled the 37 to October, assigned last night, cost basis of 35, stock is at almost 27, grrr
#Earnings #Assignment While waiting for $PVTL 22.5 puts to hopefully expire, I got assigned last night. At least it is cheap. No weeklies, and options premium is weak, so I will hopefully catch a bounce and sell it.

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
#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
$ROKU 6/29 46 put assigned. Basis 43.90 Today’s close 42.60
