HCA covered call

#Earnings #CoveredCalls #LongStock Trump talking in the Rose Garden has some healthcare stocks spiking right now.

Sold $HCA Nov 17th 80 call for 1.30

ISRG fat finger

#CoveredCalls – Was long stock covered by next week’s 301.67 calls. Was entering an order to close the entire position at 301.50…willing to give up 17 cents to free up the cash a week early and to not have to hold over earnings. Forgot to adjust the darn price and was filled at 300.88. Ended up costing myself 62 cents but with a basis of 299.13 it’s still a winner.

Had this position on for a long time since a previous earnings play where the call side got demolished on a gap and run. Happy to be out and satisfied with the long grinding comeback!


#CoveredCalls – Keeping a little stock for at least a couple more weeks…

Rolled SVXY OCT 13 2017 93.0 Calls to OCT 27 2017 94.0 Calls @ .59 credit


#CoveredCalls – These aren’t covered yet but they might as well be…

Bought to Close AAOI OCT 20 2017 60.0 Calls @ .05 (rolling this profit into my stock basis)

Sold AAOI OCT 20 2017 48.0 Calls @ 1.20

Selling these a little under my basis but should be able to roll up into earnings if needed…


#Earnings #ShortPuts #LongStock
As noted last night $AAOI has taken its expected dump, one night before my 55 puts were to expire. Will consider my options based on today’s action.

I’ve been waiting for $HCA to recover but it’s taking a big hit today, along with all Healthcare ($XLV) since Trump is expected to cut ACA subsidies. I’m long some stock with #CoveredCalls

$DUST #CoveredCalls #Rollup – Another…

$DUST #CoveredCalls #Rollout – Another roll as the stock drops back toward the low of the day.
