Options Update: April 2021

Welcome to my Options Update for April! 

After reporting solid gains in my March update, I determined that I would have to collect $21,783 in options income in the 9 remaining months of 2021 to achieve my 2021 options income goal. That's an average of $2,420 per month. 

Well, I'm happy to say that with April's activity, I managed to collect $2,458 in options income. Not surprisingly, there are many transactions to report in this article!

Recap


In April, I had six expirations and closed four more options early. Additionally, I rolled forward eight options and wrote sixteen put options to generate additional options income:


Assigned Options


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

I had no assignments in April.

Expired Options


In April, the following option expired:

#6002020-12-18:-2×NKE 16 Apr 2021 $95.00 P $       130.00 ( $          -0.87 )
#5882020-12-18:-1×HD 16 Apr 2021 $215.00 P $       180.00 ( $          -0.79 )
#5802020-12-18:-3×BEN 16 Apr 2021 $20.00 P $       144.00 ( $          -0.34 )
#5742020-12-11:-2×XOM 16 Apr 2021 $37.50 P $       327.00 ( $          -0.73 ) 
#5732020-12-11:-3×TJX 16 Apr 2021 $50.00 P $       248.00 ( $          -1.84 ) 
#5542020-11-30:-1×D 16 Apr 2021 $67.50 P $       112.00 ( $          -0.24 ) 

When options expire, the obligations I have related to those options cease to exist. For covered calls, there no longer is a chance that my shares will be called away. For puts, there no longer is a chance that I would have to buy shares, and the margin that was set aside as collateral gets released. More importantly, though, I can consider replacing the expired options and collect more options income!

After options expiration day, I usually write an article to report what happened. I reported on all these expiration in this article, which resulted in secured options income totaling about $1,135. Secured options income means I no longer have any obligation related to options. 

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.

#6362021-04-01:-2×BNS 17 Sep 2021 $60.00 C $       767.00 ( $          -0.29 ) 
#5812020-12-18:-2×BNS 18 Jun 2021 $55.00 C $       400.00 ( $   -1,547.95 )→ #636 

On 1 April, The Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS) traded well above the $55 strike price of the covered calls I'd sold. Since the stock would've traded ex-dividend on 5 April and to avoid probable assignment, I rolled forward the call options to the 18 September expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $60. The trade cost about $1,547 to execute and I collected about $767 for selling the $60 calls, for a net loss in options income of about $780.

#6372021-04-07:-2×CSCO 16 Jul 2021 $45.00 P $       116.00 ( $          -2.43 )
#5852020-12-18:-3×CSCO 16 Apr 2021 $35.00 P $       129.00 ( $          -7.15 )→ #637

On 7 April, Cisco Systems, Inc (CSCO) traded above $51 per share, well above the $35 puts I'd sold. With much of the available options income already in the bag, so to speak, I decided to roll forward the put options to the 16 July expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $45. The trade cost only about $7 to execute and I collected about $116 for selling the $45 puts. In buying back the February 2021 puts, I secured $129 of options income.

#6442021-04-15:-2×MO 21 Jan 2022 $60.00 C $       214.00 ( $          -0.73 )
#5692020-12-11:-2×MO 18 Jun 2021 $50.00 C $       161.00 ( $      -563.46 )→ #644

On 15 April, Altria Group, Inc (MO) traded just above the $50 strike price of the covered call I'd sold. To avoid assignment, I rolled forward the call options to the 21 January 2022 expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $60. The trade cost about $563 to execute and I collected about $213 for selling the $60 call, for a loss in options income of $349. 

#6492021-04-16:-3×AFL 20 Aug 2021 $45.00 P $       142.00 ( $          -2.26 )

On 16 April, Aflac Incorporated (AFL) traded above $53 per share, well above the $40 puts I'd sold. With much of the available options income secured, I decided to roll forward the put options to the 20 August expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $45. The trade cost only about $22 to execute and I collected about $140 for selling the $45 puts. Furthermore, I secured $330 of options income by buying back the May puts.

#6502021-04-16:-2×CL 20 Aug 2021 $70.00 P $       165.00 ( $          -0.13 )
#5822020-12-18:-2×CL 21 May 2021 $65.00 P $       140.00 ( $        -36.00 )→ #650

Also on 16 April, Colgate-Palmolive Company (CL) traded above $80 per share, well above the $65 puts I'd sold. With much of the available options income secured, I decided to roll forward the put options to the 20 August expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $70. The trade cost only about $36 to execute and I collected about $165 for selling the $70 puts. And, I secured options income of $140 by buying back the May puts.

#6512021-04-16:-3×INTC 20 Aug 2021 $50.00 P $       201.00 ( $          -1.04 )

On 16 April, Intel Corporation (AFL) traded above $64 per share, well above the $32.50 puts I'd sold. With most of the available options income secured, I decided to roll forward the put options to the 20 August expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $50. The trade cost only about $14 to execute and I collected about $200 for selling the $50 puts. Furthermore, I secured $150 in options income by buying back the June puts.

#6522021-04-16:-2×JNJ 17 Sep 2021 $130.00 P $       190.00 ( $          -0.69 )
#5922020-12-18:-2×JNJ 18 Jun 2021 $110.00 P $       192.00 ( $        -27.57 )→ #652


Finally, on 16 April, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) traded above $162 per share, well above the $110 puts I'd sold. With much of the available options income secured, I decided to roll forward the put options to the 17 September expiration date, simultaneously increasing the strike price to $130. The trade cost only about $28 to execute and I collected about $189 for selling the $130 puts. Moreover, I secured options income of $192 by buying back the May puts.

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 the case of covered calls, you must close the calls if you want to sell the underlying shares before expiration. 

I closed the following options early in April.

#6332021-03-16:-3×VZ 18 Jun 2021 $50.00 P $       168.00 ( $        -30.04 )
#5982020-12-18:-2×MDT 21 May 2021 $85.00 P $       150.00 ( $        -19.44 ) 
#5782020-12-18:-1×ADP 21 May 2021 $130.00 P $       155.00 ( $          -6.36 ) 
#572b2020-12-11:-1×T 18 Jun 2021 $37.00 C $         39.00 ( $          -7.57 ) 

On 21 April, Verizon Communications Inc (VZ) traded above $58, so the $50 puts I'd sold were deep out-of-the-money. I decided to close the $50 put options early rather than roll forward the options and secured about $138 in the process. My VZ position is just about where I need it to be according to my newly adopted portfolio target weights and I'm no longer interested in expanding my VZ position. 

Medtronic plc (MDT) traded above $126 on 19 April, well above the $85 put options I'd sold. While I need about 65 to turn MDT into a full position, the stock price is uncomfortably high now, so I don't want to be short two options anymore. Perhaps I'll sell another MDT put soon but, for now, I bought back the $85 puts to secure about $131 in options income. 

Also on 19 April, Automatic Data Processing, Inc (ADPtraded above $192, well above the $130 put option I'd sold. My ADP position is appropriately sized, so I no longer want to be short the put option. Closing the $130 put secured $149 in options income. 

Finally, I trimmed my AT&T (T) position by 100 shares and needed to buy back one of the $37 covered calls I'd sold. Closing the $37 call option secured about $31 in options income.

In all, closing these covered calls early cost $63, while I secured about $449 in options income. Again, secured means I no longer have any obligations to buy or sell the underlying shares.

Covered Calls


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

I did not sell any covered calls in April.

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 April:

Many of these options are out-of-the-money by large margins. But I'll soon have to pay attention to the $50 covered call on Aflac Incorporated (AFL) expiring on 21 May. Additionally, there are several options expiring in June that would need careful monitoring. In particular, the $50 covered call on Archer-Daniels-Midland Company (ADM) is deep in the money.

Concluding Remarks


April turned out to be another good month for options trading! I'm making progress towards my annual options income goal for 2021. To achieve my goal, I'd have to collect $24,000 – $4,675 = $19,325 in options income in the 8 remaining months of 2021. That's an average of $2,416 per month.
