Bought to Close PLUG SEP 18 2020 12.0/10.0 Bull Put Spreads @ .70 (sold for 1.30)

PLUG

#BullPutSpreads – Thanks @Jeff for pointing this one out. Might be a fun one to play with…pretty low risk selling ITM spreads. I’ll manage it similar to an earnings spread when I sell those ITM. If the stock tanks one covered call sale will get that back.

Sold PLUG SEP 18 2020 12.0/10.0 Bull Put Spreads @ 1.30

SPCE Earnings (early)

#BullPutSpreads – Stock is weak today so putting on my earnings trade now. Taking a shot at a rally but really covering my butt in case of an implosion. Same as all the other ITM spreads I sell. If it implodes I’ll close the long side right at the close Friday and let the shorts get assigned. Should have a basis around a dollar above where the stock ends no matter how far it drops.

Long story short…if it’s below my spread at expiration then the lower the better.

Sold SPCE AUG 7 2020 25.0/22.0 Bull Put Spreads @ 2.00

WYNN

#BullPutSpreads – In a nice squeeze and looks strong. MGM breaking out and LVS and PENN strong. But…for risk reduction selling a spread in case of an implosion. At least I’ll get it at a nice basis no matter how low it goes on a pullback.

SPCE

Original trade:

#BullPutSpreads #Earnings – Selling slightly in the money. If I get lucky and the stock goes up it’ll be a nice winner. On the other hand, no matter how far it drops I’ll own stock about 1.70 below my basis which can be more than made up in one week of call selling with the extreme premium on this thing.

Sold SPCE FEB 28 2020 41.0/36.0 Bull Put Spreads @ 3.30

So…closing the long puts for the gains and letting the shorts get exercised. Non taxable account so selling the covered calls early using spreads. Yesterday bought puts to protect the position from anything crazy. Selling aggressively to reduce basis as quickly as possible during this high volatility.

AAL

#BullPutSpreads – Some guys in our union forum were debating the pros and cons about our outlook for next year. Have to say I’m on the fence. Lots of labor contract negotiations going on but fleet renewal will be winding down so maybe some debt reduction possible with the cash flow now. I suggested a low risk way to get long so since I suggested it I had to do it myself.

Going with an ITM bull put spread out a few months. Here’s my post from that forum:

=============================================================

I’m as bearish as the next guy on airlines but I’m taking a small shot with low risk…

Sold 5 AAL MAY 15 2020 35.0/30.0 Bull Put Spreads @ 3.75

What now?

1. Stock rallies above 35 by expiration full profit of $1875
2. Stock implodes then I’ll own 500 shares at a basis of 1.25 above wherever the stock ends up (in this case lower the better)
3. Stock goes to zero I’ll lose $625
4. Anything above 31.25 at expiration makes money or a near term rally makes money also

ULTA

#BullPutSpreads – Short a Jan 240 covered call so selling the other side now.

Sold ULTA JAN 17 2020 240.0/210 Bull Put Spread @ 2.36

He called the bounce and he sure was right this time. I’ve been experimenting with some of his trades with one lots just to get used to the style. I may ramp up the volume a little eventually.

#bullputspreads

AMZN and NVDA are not working well today for my #bullputspreads. I am always having difficulties with spreads vs. naked puts.

How do you manage your spreads, do you let them run, because of capped loss, or do you close them at 1-2 times the premium received?

I have

Heck if I know but it’s at a split adjusted 980 from the last 7 for 1. That’s a lot of iPhones!
