Mara SAFER Way DOTM Puts 2 Outcomes

NASDAQ:MARA   Marathon Digital Holdings, Inc
The Trifecta Income play is designed to either generate income or gets the stock assigned to you at a lower cost.
YOU SHOULD ONLY USE THIS TECHNIQUE ON STOCKS YOU WANT TO HOLD FOR LONG TERM.

Pay attention to the company as you do not want get a stock that is in a declining industry like KODAK when digital cameras came out.
We do this by selling a DOTM put, that immediately generates income at the expense of our buying power. In this case, we are selling the:

MARA Jan 2023 $5 PUT

for a net credit of $1.38/share or $138/contract, and a reduction in buying power of $362 per contract.
Assuming that the MARA closes remains above $5 through Jan 2023, our return is:

$5 share price / $ 1.38 credit = 27.6%
We can do this because the have a target support zone from 4.5 to 5.5 with a target resistance zones of 15.

There are two possible outcomes:

1) MARA closes above $5 by expiration in which case we keep the entire credit for a return of 27.6%

2) MARA closes below $5 at expiration in which case we get assigned at $5. Because of the credit our cost basis for the stock is $5 - less the credit received $1.38 for a cost basis of $3.62 which is below our target support zone of $4.5.

Net result, we have a safety of margin from the current stock price of $9.78 - $3.62 (assignment cost) of $6.16, which means we have a safer entry at reduced cost using this safer trade structure.


Hope it helps
