Options Update: July 2020

Welcome to July's Options Update! 

I write monthly articles to summarize my options trades and to keep track of DivGro's options income. By selling covered calls and put options, I receive options income that I use to buy more dividend growth stocks. This indirectly boosts DivGro's ability to generate dividend income!

While this month's options income did not come close to what I earned in June, nevertheless I'm satisfied with July's "takings". Unfortunately, I'm still in a deep hole and it is unlikely that I will achieve my 2020 goal of collecting at least $24,000 in options income.

Recap


In July, I had six expirations and I closed one options trade early, Additionally, I rolled forward two options and had sixteen income-generating trades:



Assigned Options


When the holder of an option exercises the option, it is said to be assigned.

I had no assignments in July.

Expired Options


In July, the following option expired:

#4842020-06-30:-1×PEG 17 Jul 2020 $50.00 P $       185.00 ( $ -0.35 )
#4822020-06-25:-1×LYB 17 Jul 2020 $61.00 P $       335.00 ( $ -0.25 )
#4702020-05-28:-3×CMCSA 17 Jul 2020 $35.00 P $       150.00 ( $ -2.21 )
#4682020-04-17:-1×LOW 17 Jul 2020 $90.00 P $       702.00 ( $ -0.66 )
#4442020-01-15:-1×D 17 Jul 2020 $82.50 C $       267.00 ( $ -0.30 )
#4432020-01-15:-2×CMCSA 17 Jul 2020 $47.50 C $       402.00 ( $ -1.50 )

I already covered these expirations in an article, so I won't rehash details here.

In all, I secured options income totaling $2,036 with these expirations. Secured means I no longer have any obligations. For covered calls, my shares can no longer be called away and for put options, the margin that has been set aside for collateral gets released.  

Closed Options


When an out of the money option goes further out of the money, you can close the option early and secure most of the options income.

In July, I closed out one option early:

#3052019-02-07:-1×INTC 15 Jan 2021 $50.00 C $       679.00 ( $ -546.76 )

Recently, Intel Corporation (INTC) announced Q2 earnings that beat expectations but were offset by a six-month 7nm product delay. The stock price dropped about 9% and gave me an opportunity to buy back a covered call that was underwater for quite a while. The trade secured about $132 in options income.

Rolled Options


Rolling forward options means buying back an option and selling another option with a later expiration date. You can do this to avoid options assignment for in the money options or to collect more options income for out of the money options.

I rolled forward one option in July:

#4852020-07-16:-2×TROW 15 Jan 2021 $135.00 C $    2,202.00 ( $        -0.34 )
#4302019-12-12:-2×TROW 17 Jul 2020 $120.00 C $    2,209.00 ( $ -2,601.93 )→ #485
On 16 July, T. Rowe Price Group, Inc (T) traded above $132 per share, well above the $120 covered call I'd sold earlier. To avoid assignment, I rolled forward the option to the January 2021 expiration date and also increased the strike price to $135. The trade netted a loss of $400 but buys me more time to see if the trade can turn in my favor.

In July, I also rolled
 back an option:

#5022020-07-24:-5×T 15 Jan 2021 $35.00 C $       232.00 ( $    -2.48 )
#4412020-01-08:-5×T 21 Jan 2022 $40.00 C $    1,452.00 ( $ 289.58 )→ #502
On 24 July, AT&T Inc (T) traded below $30 per share, giving me a chance to buy back the $40 covered call expiring in January 2022. To partially cover the cost of buying back that covered call, I sold one expiring in January 2021 with a strike price of $35. The trade netted a loss of $58, but I'm hoping eventually to secure about $230 in options income with this trade.

Covered Calls


Selling covered calls is a way to collect extra income on stocks you already own.

I sold the following covered calls in July:

#5012020-07-24:-1×RY 16 Oct 2020 $75.00 C $       110.00 ( $ -1.10 )

For covered calls, I think an achievable goal is to earn double the dividend yield.

Only three of these trades actually double my dividend yield. In some cases, I sold covered calls to replace dividend income that was suspended or cut, as explained in this article.

New Put Contracts


Selling put options allows me to set the price I'm willing to pay for a stock I want to buy. In effect, I get paid while waiting for the share price to drop!

I sold the following put contracts in July:

Options Expiring Soon


Below I'm listing options expiring in the next two months. On expiration day, in the money options will result in options assignment, which I'd like to avoid in some cases, if possible.

August 2020:


#4832020-06-25:-2×PEG 21 Aug 2020 $45.00 P $       380.00 ( $ -0.20 )→ Out of the money with a  16% safety margin   
#4802020-06-23:-3×WBA 21 Aug 2020 $40.00 P $       489.00 ( $ -1.35 )→ Out of the money with a  2% safety margin  
#4792020-06-23:-3×CMCSA 21 Aug 2020 $32.50 P $       132.00 ( $ -1.34 )→ Out of the money with a  34% safety margin  
#4782020-06-23:-2×AFL 21 Aug 2020 $35.00 P $       390.00 ( $ -0.90 )→ Out of the money with a  1% safety margin  
September 2020:

#4992020-07-24:-1×PM 18 Sep 2020 $80.00 C $       162.00 ( $ -1.10 )→ Out of the money with a  3% safety margin  
#4912020-07-23:-1×PEG 18 Sep 2020 $55.00 P $       360.00 ( $ -0.30 )→ In the money by  5% — caution!   
#4902020-07-23:-1×LYB 18 Sep 2020 $60.00 P $       225.00 ( $ -0.35 )→ Out of the money with a  9% safety margin  
#4812020-06-23:-2×WFC 18 Sep 2020 $22.50 P $       188.00 ( $ -0.90 )→ Out of the money with a  10% safety margin  
#4752020-06-22:-1×ORCL 18 Sep 2020 $50.00 P $       148.00 ( $ -0.80 )→ Out of the money with an 11% safety margin  
#4742020-06-22:-1×O 18 Sep 2020 $50.00 P $       180.00 ( $ -0.25 )→ Out of the money with a  21% safety margin  
#4712020-06-16:-2×AAPL 18 Sep 2020 $250.00 P $       560.00 ($ -0.90 )→ Out of the money with a  54% safety margin  
#4692020-04-17:-1×TXN 18 Sep 2020 $95.00 P $       660.00 ( $ -0.66 )→ Out of the money with a  37% safety margin  
#4452020-01-15:-2×KO 18 Sep 2020 $55.00 C $       717.00 ( $ -1.70 )→ Out of the money with a  13% safety margin  

The put trade on PEG expiring in September is in the money, but that is a trade that I wouldn't mind getting assigned. A few other options are trading out of the money with small margins of safety, so I'll need to closely monitor those as the options expiration dates approach.

Concluding Remarks

Options Income
End of Month:

Previous Month:

This Month:

My year-to-date options income is $3,691 and given my goal to collect $24,000 in options income in 2020, I'll now have to earn $20,309 in the remaining five months to achieve my options income goal! It is highly unlikely that I would be able to reach that goal!
