Sold $HCA Nov 17th 80 call for 1.30
#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…
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
