Today I sold 1 MWW Aug09 15 Covered Call for a net deposit of $16.25 in an IRA account. My basis for these MWW shares is now 40.47.
I had to go out 2 months to be able to get option premium for the 15 strike price. There has been some resistance at 15 which is why I wanted that strike price. As you can see, I am well underwater on MWW and don’t want it called away just yet. I actually put in a limit day order for 1 MWW Aug09 10 at .55 while the bid/ask was .50/.55 hoping that I might catch a little dip. I did not get my price and the order expired. I will try again tomorrow. My intent is to lower my average basis helping me to get MWW called away at a profit. Also, having more contracts to sell decreases the cost of the transaction per share.
