Stock Option Trades for the Week Ending June 25

by | Jun 22, 2021 | Covered Calls | 0 comments

As June 18 was the monthly option expiration date for June options, I had a lot of trades in the past two days. Many of the stocks that I had sold covered calls on earlier, closed above the strike price on Friday and accordingly were assigned. For those stocks that closed below the call strike price on Friday, I sold some of them today but held others and sold July covered calls to collect even more premium. Fortunately for me, some of the stocks that closed below the strike price on Friday rallied above that strike yesterday.

I would normally wait until the weekend to post as a means of keeping my posts to a minimum but, given the number of trades I had yesterday and today, I thought it would be better to publish this post today.

Nike (NKE) – Opened Covered Calls

Late in the trading session today, I decided to open a covered call trade on Nike even though the earnings will be released on Thursday, June 24. Prior to today, I have never opened a covered call trade two days before an earnings release but I have my reasons which are based on a new layer that I have added to my analysis.
