#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.
#Earnings #DoubleCalendar Here’s the performance this quarter of double calendars. It is performing better than last quarter, with over $1,700 in profit, using 5-lots.
NOTE: NTAP here is accounted as full loss, even though I will probably hold stock in to next week.
NOTE ALSO: INTC here is accounted as taking stock assignment and then closing all a week later. What I actually did was close only half, and converted the other half of stock into a #PieTrade.
#Earnings Sold to close $AMAT Feb15/Feb22 #DoubleCalendar for .28. Bought yesterday for .52. Couldn’t get off its ass enough to make it a winner.
$Earnings Closed $TAP Feb15/Feb22 65 #DoubleCalendar. I needed to close the puts, tried to play the swings but then stock started rallying so took an additional .30 loss on the exit. Calendar bought for .34 on Monday.
#Earnings Sold to Close $CSCO Feb15/Feb22 47.5 #DoubleCalendar for .30. Bought for .18 on Wednesday. Stock came down enough for a small profit, but was too far from strike to make it a good one.
#Earnings #DoubleCalendar Was assigned stock on over half of my position in $NTAP; Feb 15th 68 short puts. I just sold the Feb 22nd LONG puts for 3.60. I will now watch for some intraday strength in the stock to sell the stock, as well as cover the remaining short puts that were not assigned. If I can net a .39 difference (the price of the original double calendar), the trade will be breakeven. Higher and it will turn a profit.
