TODAY (Monday)
#CoveredCallCampaign
Sold $AAPL Aug 24th 202.5 #CoveredCalls for 7.00. This replaces the Aug 17th 202.5 calls I closed last week for 7.40, to avoid being called away on the ex-div date. I’m rolling ITM calls after earnings trade got breached.

OLED covered call

#CoveredCalls Sold $OLED Aug 17th 120 covered call for 2.00

WTW Earnings

#Earnings #CoveredCalls – My final adjustment. I’ll be taking stock at a basis of 79.16. I’m a little bearish thinking this thing is headed for the 200ma. Selling my covered calls ITM a couple weeks out for max downside protection while lowering my basis quite a bit.

Bought to Close WTW AUG 10 2018 80.0 Calls @ .12

Sold WTW AUG 24 2018 75.0 Calls @ 4.13

Stock basis now 75.15 covered with 75 strike calls. I’ll be able to let the stock go near even or roll one more time for a small profit. If it keeps dropping I’ll keep selling slightly ITM until we see a bounce…
