SLV June 16 Covered Call

Bought two lots of SLV at 15.74 and sold June 16 calls for 38 ea (45 delta strike). The IV was >20% today. The position break even is reduced to 15.36 with a 4% max profit on the break even cost. At 60 days to expiry, this yields 25% at an annualized rate. Ideally the cost basis on the position can be further reduced after June with additional calls sold ...

THE SHORT PUT-ACQUIRE/KEEP PREMIUM-COVERED CALL CYCLE

I have touched on this topic before in separate posts, but thought I'd refresh the notion of what I like to call "strategic acquisition" here, since I get repeatedly asked about how I go about acquiring shares in an underlying I actually really do want to buy and hold, usually for an indefinite period of time (we're talking years here). The focus of these ...

Here, I'm going covered call because ANF has a small divvy that I want to attempt to grab (.20/$20 per 100 shares), so I need to own the shares to do that. The record date is 3/3, so I will need to hold the shares until at least then. I'm going monied because I just don't trust this thing not to implode somewhat post earnings ... .

Bought shares at 26.02 and sold the Oct 21st 26.5 call for a 24.86 ($2486) per 100 shares/contract debit. In this particular case, I'll be looking to take this off for 105% of what I paid to put it on: 1.05 x 2486 = 2610, which should yield about $120/contract in profit. I usually shoot for 110% (or a 10% ROC), but am just looking to get in and out of the trade ...

TRADE IDEA: AMD COVERED CALL/NAKED SHORT PUT

My "guess" is that AMD will not hold onto this level (I briefly considered going "monied" with the short call with the covered call setup, selling the 7 strike instead of the 8). However. implied volatility is fairly high here (64.6%), and my mechanical approach to most of these setups is basically to "ditch the guessing" and pull the trigger; price will go where ...

WITH VIX SUB-15, PREEM SELLING OPPS ARE OUSTIDE BROAD INDICES

As I've posted several times before, my preference generally is to (1) sell premium in broad-based index instruments (e.g., SPY, IWM, QQQ, SPX, RUT) if VIX > 15; and (2) if VIX < 15, look for premium selling opportunities in non-index exchange traded funds with implied volatility of >35% and/or individual underlyings with implied volatility of >50% and where the ...
