Today, I had naked Peloton puts expire as well as covered calls in Gilead, Merck and Barrick Gold. Peloton closed profitably with the share price 12% above the strike. Likewise, my Gilead and Merck covered call trades were profitable with the share prices closing above the strikes which means the shares will be assigned to the owners of the calls next week. The share price of Barrick Gold closed below the call strike so I have to decide whether to sell my shares or hang on to the shares and sell more calls next week. Since Barrick Gold still passes one of my covered call screens, I will keep my shares and sell calls again. For that trade, I will report the results when I sell the shares and close out the trade.
The trade returns and annualized returns in the tables below include the commissions.
All the best in trading and in life.
