GLD, 1D
OPENING: GLD OCT112/AUG 122 Diagonal / PMCC

Opened a 'poor mans covered call' on GLD. Going long on this alternative asset class to diversify the portfolio.

Bought the OCT 112 CALL at 86 deltas, 105 days to expiration as a stock replacement for 8.12 and ...

HPQ covered strangle

Rather than just holding HPQ stock with hope that it may go higher this year, collecting a 2.5% yield while waiting, I instead plan to sell options premium this week against my $22 cost basis for a higher return on capital. Implied volatility on HPQ is over 30% and rising as we near the earnings report date of May 29 after the close. Of the past 8 quarterly ...

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 ...

Let's start with the metrics for this setup: Buy shares at 24.54 Sell Nov 18th 22.5 short call Whole Package/BE/Cost Basis: 20.40 db per 100 shares/contract (20.40 is also your cost basis and break even) Max Profit: $210 per 100 shares/contract (if called away at 22.50) ROC: 10.3% Now, ordinarily, I like to do "OTM" (i.e., out-of-the money) covered calls where ...

OPENING: GDX COVERED CALL

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 ...

I figured I'd clean up this setup a little bit on the chart to show what's going on with this trade a little more clearly, since we're running into opex, and I'll have to do something with it here shortly.
