    Default Options Trading

    Potential 638% profit on Covid-19 vaccines....It's not to late to follow them.

    We already have a play on PFE in our Long-Term Portfolio and, frankly, it's not doing well so far:

    PFE Long Call 2023 20-JAN 30.00 CALL [PFE @ $34.35 $-0.04] 50 9/28/2020 (682) $40,000 $8.00 $-1.95 $8.00 $6.05 $0.38 $-9,750 -24.4% $30,250
    PFE Short Call 2023 20-JAN 37.00 CALL [PFE @ $34.35 $-0.04] -50 9/28/2020 (682) $-23,000 $4.60 $-1.25 $3.35 $0.37 $6,250 27.2% $-16,750
    PFE Short Put 2022 16-SEP 35.00 PUT [PFE @ $34.35 $-0.04] -15 9/28/2020 (556) $-9,900 $6.60 $-0.85 $5.75 - $1,275 12.9% $-8,625
    We invested net $7,100 in that $35,000 spread and we're down $2,225 but that means, as a new trade, it's only net $4,875 for the $35,000 spead with $31,125 (638%) upside potential if PFE can get back to $37 by 2023 and the worst case is you end up owning 1,500 shares at $35 ($52,500) plust the $4,875 invested comes out to about $38/share but those are only Sepember puts and they are now $5.75 and mostly premium and the 2023 $33 puts are $4.50 so we'd lower our basis by rolling them if we have to. The margin on the short puts is just $5,379, so it's a very efficient way to make $31,125.
    We have a similar spread in our Money Talk Portfolio and, like the LTP, we're going to leave it alone for now but, in our Dividends Portfolio, we don't have PFE – even though they pay a nice $1.56 (4.54%) dividend – and we know how to enhance that with a simple options strategy. So, for the Dividend Portfolio, let's add:

    • Buy 1,000 Shares of PFE for $34.35 ($34,500)
    • Sell 10 PFE 2023 $30 calls for $6 ($6,000)
    • Sell 10 PFE 2023 $33 puts for $4.50 ($4,500)

    That drops our net entry to $24,000 or just $24 per share. If we are assigned 1,000 more at $33, our average cost per share would be $28.50, still 17% below the current price. That makes the $1,560 dividend we expect to collect a very nice 6.5% dividend while we wait to be called away with a $6,000 (25% profit) but, of course, we intend to roll our short puts and calls and keep the stock for the long run.
    It's not very sexy with "just" an anticipated return of $9,120 (38%) against our $24,000 investment in two years but, if PFE is safely over $37 early next year, we can then release the allocation block for another trade. That's why, even with conservative targets like these, our Dividend Portfolio is up 70.2% since Oct 25, 2019. As we discussed in last week's Live Trading Webinar, you don't have to swing for the fences to make very nice returns and, if you keep getting hits – some of them are going to be home runs anyway.

    Yay DAL (Delta Air Lines)
    I have open Condor Call (Buy $47/Sell $51/Sell $56/Buy $60) - note not the same expiration date for $1.94 debit ($194) that I purchased on 3/11
    Expiration date 3/19 ($47/$51/$56) and expiration date 4/16 ($60) If it increased in price to $60 I expect my $60 strike worth as least $2 to $6

    I just converted 3/19 from $47/$51/$56 to B $50/S $52.5/S $57.5 for net credit of $1.97, so I still have March 19 $50/S $52.5/$57.5 (Etrade PRO analyze this strategy has 56% chance of making money) along with April 19 $60 for free.

    then add additional REI Call spread
    APR $2.50/$3.00 for $.20 debit with potential profit $.30 (150%) if it close above $3 on April 16

    Just notice OXY has an unusual volume on 3/26 with 23K trading only 319 open interest so
    I bought APR 9 $32 and sold 3/26 $32.5 for $.64
    Etrade PRO analyze close on 3/26: 46% below $28.86 with 53% chance of making money between $28.86 - $39.95

    Every 2 $32 spread above I also bought 1 spread of APR 9 $31 and sold 3/26 $32.5 for $.92

    OXY - I kept rolling until all out with $550 profit.
    REI - I still have some stocks and call open including sell naked put with ahead $120

    Although my ITF to I funds so far not doing well, but I bought EFA April 16 $73 Call at $3.32 and sold OTM strike (Out of The Money) to reduce my cost = collect additional profit. So far 50% unrealize gain (if count the OTM I collect as reducing cost then it's almost 100% for unrealize gain).




    NEW TRADE PUT IDEA FOR KNDI
    Every 1 contract $7
    I bought then I sold 2 contracts $6 to collect $.10 ($10) CREDIT for May expiration. It maybe late for May, but June you can collect at least $.18 ($18-breakeven is $4.82).
    If KNDI trade above $7 at the expiration I keep my $10. If trade above $6, but below $7 then I have up to $99 more to collect. Or I will buy for more than 22% discount at $4.90 breakeven ($6 strike I sold extra - $1 credit (collect $7/$6 put spread) - $.10 credit collect initial) per share if it trade below $6. I don't mind to own them. (Hopefully I'll be able to profit similar to GPRO-GoPro that pick up stock for under $2 then collect additional profit average $.20/weekly along the way for more 8X of my cost as covered call and sold at $10 in early Feb). Note: I also sold extra naked put $6 for June expiration average $.94 for extra credit (May B1 $7/S2 $6/June S1 $6) as more than 80% options are expire worthless.

    Additionally, the short float on the stock is at 23.3%, which means we could get a huge upside boost if retail traders set their site on the stock.
