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

HCA/AAOI dump

#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

HCA covered call

#Earnings #LongStock #CoveredCalls
Sold $HCA Oct 20th 82.5 covered call for .75, adding to the position.
Looks like earnings are last week of October. Hopefully stock can recover up to 82 area so I can exit before then, but may play through earnings if necessary.

BBY stock for sale

#Earnings #Assignment #LongStock
Sold shares of $BBY for 56.50, and 56.75. Cost basis 56.44 from 57.5 put assignment on 9/1.

Covered Call premium not attractive enough to play with this one. I don’t trust the business either with Amazon devouring all retail in sight. Will sell out of remaining shares as it moves up or down from here.
