BOUGHT LULU APRIL 8TH 54 SHORT PUT TO CLOSE

NASDAQ:LULU   LULULEMON ATHLETICA INC
With the short put nearing worthless here, I'm closing it out for a .05 debit ($5). I received a .68 credit for the 54 short put ($68), so I realized a profit of .68 - .05 = .63 ($63)/contract on that side.

Unfortunately, price is getting uncomfortably close to my short call side ... .
Missing important information here. When exactly did you sell the strangle, what was LULU at?

Ok I see from the several posts. It appears you opened before earnings Mar 30?

Yep. The day immediately before.

Did you think the straddle was overpriced?

If I understand your question correctly ... . I ordinarily do not do short straddles (short put and short call at same strike) except for lower priced underlyings (usually $10 and under) if I can't get sufficient premium out of a strangle.

Sorry I meant to say a strangle you sold into the Earnings. Did you sell it because it was overpriced?
Reply
Oh, sorry. My criteria for selling are that the underlying's implied volatility ranks above the 70th percentile for the past 52 weeks and that current volatility exceeds 50%, so in that sense, the setup is priced higher than usual due to greater implied volatility.
