ISRG

#JadeLizards – Still playing with a non-earnings Jade Lizard. Was hoping for a 500 pin today but not looking likely. Rolling the whole thing out a week (put side 5 points lower).

Rolled AUG 16 2019 500.0/500.0/505.0 Jade Lizard to AUG 23 495.0/500.0/5o5.0 @ 4.25 credit (11.95 total now)

NVDA earnings (sort of)

#JadeLizards – Playing this like an #Earnings trade but going out further for more safety. No upside risk and would get the stock at a 129 basis if it implodes…

Sold NVDA SEP 20 2019 135.0/150.0/155.0 Jade Lizard @ 6.00

ISRG

#JadeLizards – Rolling call spread down to the short put strike for additional premium. Still no upside risk but won’t make as much on a rally.

Rolled ISRG AUG 16 2019 535.0/540.0 BeCS to ISRG AUG 16 2019 500.0/505.0 BeCS @ 1.78 credit.

Total premium received now is up to 7.70. Make 2.70 on a big rally or receive stock at a basis of 492.30

SQ Earnings

#Earnings #JadeLizards – With the little pullback and spike in volatility taking a shot at tomorrow.

Sold SQ AUG 2 2019 76.0/83.0/84.0 Jade Lizards @ 1.31

AAPL Earnings

#Earnings #JadeLizards – Another earnings announcement and another blowout to the upside. Thanks to the Lizard it still made a little cash.

Bought to Close AAPL AUG 16 2019 195.0/212.5/215.0 Jade Lizard @ 1.87 (sold for 2.51)

BYND Earnings

#Earnings #JadeLizards – I feel like I’ve gotta play this just for the excitement aspect…LOL. I like @matt0311 ‘s idea which is similar to how I’ve played most of these earnings lizards. Selling call spread at the money and giving the put side room outside the expected move. In this case I’m also adding the junk long put in case this thing absolutely implodes. I’m also short some ITM call spreads so I wouldn’t hate a test of my put here.

Sold BYND AUG 2 2019 140/170/225/227.5 Jade Lizard (skewed iron condor?) @ 3.16

XLNX Earnings

#Earnings #JadeLizards – Everything seems so overbought I’m having trouble finding anything for tomorrow. XLNX is one of the cheaper ones though with pretty good premium. Playing it like all the others…to the downside with no upside risk.

Sold XLNX JUL 26 2019 121/129/132 Jade Lizards @ 3.03

This would get the stock below the 100ma and just above the 50ma and require a move down of 30 percent more than expected.

EDIT…not very much but still a 1.25% divvy yield at 118. Could probably easily triple that with covered call sales.
