Options Update: July 2021

Updating readers on my options trading activity has been a challenge this Summer. In fact, I haven't reported July's actions and it is almost time to do the same for August! Work has occupied much of my time, and some challenging times for our family have made things worse. 

June turned out to be a great month for options trading with $5,731 added to my options income tally. That raised my year-to-date options income to $10,908. 

Unfortunately, July's numbers are very poor, as I decided to buy back three deep-in-the-money, covered calls. This article explains the reasons and also the Lesson Learned... don't write covered calls on growth stocks you really want to keep! 

My options income goal of collecting $24,000 in 2021 is no longer attainable!

Recap


In July, I had four assignments, nine expirations, and three options that I'd closed early. I did not roll forward any options, nor did I write covered calls or put options this month. 



Assigned Options


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

I had four assignments in July:

#6622021-05-17:-2×CSCO 16 Jul 2021 $55.00 P $       716.00 ( $          -1.84 ) 
#6612021-05-17:-3×BEN 16 Jul 2021 $35.00 P $       645.00 ( $          -2.22 )
#6362021-04-01:-2×BNS 17 Sep 2021 $60.00 C $       767.00 ( $          -0.29 ) 
#6062020-12-18:-1×RY 16 Jul 2021 $90.00 C $       125.00 ( $          -0.69 )

On 1 July, The Bank of Nova Scotia traded around $65 per share, well above the $60 put options I'd sold. The options were exercised and I had to sell 200 shares of BNS at $60 per share. The trade secured about $767 in options income.

On July's options expiration day, Cisco Systems (CSCO) closed at $53.70 per share, below the $55 put options I'd sold. As a result, the options got assigned and I had to buy 200 shares of CSCO at $55 per share. Accounting for about $714 in secured options income, my cost basis is $51.43 per share. A positive outcome, for sure! CSCO is trading above $59 per share now!

Another assignment in July is Franklin Resources (BEN), which closed at $29.41 on 16 July. As such, the $35 put options I'd sold earlier got assigned and I had to buy 300 shares of BEN at $35 per share. Accounting for about $643 of secured options income, my cost basis is $32.86 per share. Not a great trade, though BEN has since recovered to $32.32 per share. 

Finally, on 16 July, Royal Bank of Canada (RY) closed at $100.18 per share, well above the $90 covered call I'd sold. As a result, the option got assigned and I had to sell 100 shares of RY at $90 per share. The trade secured only about $124 in options income and turned out to be a dud!

With the removal of my obligations associated with these options, I secured about $2,248 in options income.

Expired Options


In July, the following option expired:

#6542021-04-20:-1×AMT 16 Jul 2021 $210.00 P $       130.00 ( $          -1.09 ) 
#6482021-04-15:-2×XOM 16 Jul 2021 $50.00 P $       216.00 ( $          -1.47 ) 
#6452021-04-15:-1×NKE 16 Jul 2021 $115.00 P $       141.00 ( $          -0.79 )
#6402021-04-15:-4×BEN 16 Jul 2021 $25.00 P $       136.00 ( $          -0.46 )
#6342021-03-16:-1×WEC 16 Jul 2021 $80.00 P $       210.00 ( $          -0.34 )
#6212021-03-16:-1×ECL 16 Jul 2021 $190.00 P $       265.00 ( $          -1.09 )
#6192021-03-16:-1×ATO 16 Jul 2021 $80.00 P $       170.00 ( $          -0.24 )
#6172021-01-15:-2×TJX 16 Jul 2021 $70.00 C $       985.00 ( $          -0.74 )
#5942020-12-18:-2×LLY 16 Jul 2021 $110.00 P $       190.00 ( $          -0.88 )

After options expiration day, I usually write an Expired Options article to report what happened. But I did not write one in July, so let's cover the details of these expirations here: 

American Tower (AMT) closed at $282.46 per share on options expiration day, about 35% above the $210 put option I'd sold. As a result, the option expired and I secured about $129 in options income. 

Exxon Mobil (XOM) closed at $56.47 per share on options expiration day, about 13% above the $50 put options I'd sold. As a result, the options expired and I secured about $215 in options income. 

NIKE (NKE) closed at $159.85 per share on options expiration day, about 39% above the $190 put option I'd sold. As a result, the option expired and I secured about $140 in options income.

Franklin Resources (BEN) closed at $29.41 per share on options expiration day, about 10ths 7% above the $25 put options I'd sold. As a result, the options expired and I secured about $136 in options income. 

WEC Energy (WEC) closed at $94.77 per share on options expiration day, about 18% above the $80 put option I'd sold. As a result, the option expired and I secured about $210 in options income. 

Ecolab (ECL) closed at $215.28 per share on options expiration day, about 13% above the $55 put options I'd sold. As a result, the options expired and I secured about $264 in options income. 

Atmos Energy (ATO) closed at $100.60 per share on options expiration day, about 26% above the $80 put option I'd sold. As a result, the option expired and I secured about $170 in options income. 

TJX (TJX) closed at $67.16 per share on options expiration day, about 4% below the $70 covered calls I'd sold. As a result, the options expired and I secured about $984 in options income. 

Finally, Eli Lilly (LLY) closed at $231.71 per share on options expiration day, about 111% above the $110 put options I'd sold. As a result, the options expired and I secured about $189 in options income. 

In all, I secured $2,437 in options income from expired options in July.

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 July.

#6522021-04-16:-2×JNJ 17 Sep 2021 $130.00 P $       190.00 ( $        -19.81 )
#6502021-04-16:-2×CL 20 Aug 2021 $70.00 P $       165.00 ( $        -18.61 )
#6082020-12-18:-2×TROW 17 Dec 2021 $172.00 C $    1,443.00 ( $   -7,691.92 )
#4392019-12-18:-1×TSM 21 Jan 2022 $60.00 C $       808.00 ( $   -5,772.36 )
#3952019-09-20:-1×MSFT 21 Jan 2022 $155.00 C $    1,490.00 ( $ -12,632.22 )

On 30 July, Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) traded around $171 per share, well above the $130 put options I'd sold. With most of the options income secured, I decided to buy back the puts. Doing so cost me about $20 and I secured about $170 in options income in the process. 

On 26 July, Colgate-Palmolive (CL) traded around $84 per share, well above the $70 put options I'd sold. With most of the options income secured, I decided to buy back the puts. Doing so cost me about $19 and I secured about $146 in options income in the process.

The following trades are painful to report. When selling covered calls, you assume the risk that the underlying stock might run up well above the strike price. This is exactly what happened here and the lesson I learned is to avoid selling covered calls on growth stocks, especially ones in the Information Technology sector. 

I've been able to roll forward these options for a fairly long time, hoping the stock market might take a breather to give me a chance to buy back these options at a reasonable price. It is possible to continue with this strategy until the Bears take over, but I've decided to close out these shares now and take the gut punch!

One reason is we recently bought a property and needed cash for the down payment. I decided to close out my position in Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing (TSM) and to trim my position in T. Rowe Price (TROW), so I had to buy back the corresponding covered calls.

As for Microsoft (MSFT), I really want to keep my position for the long term, so I decided to bite the bullet now and just buy back the covered call. 

On 21 July, TROW traded around $207 per share, well above the $172 covered calls I'd sold. I decided to buy back the options so I could trim my TROW position and protect the remaining shares. The trade cost me about $7,692 to execute, though I secured about $1,443 in options income, for a net loss of about $6,249. 

TSM traded around $118 per share on 21 July, well above the $60 covered call I'd sold. I decided to buy back the option so I could close my TSM position. Doing so cost me about $5,772 and I secured about $808 in options income, for a net loss of about $4,964.

Finally, on 21 July, MSFT traded around $281 per share, well above the $155 covered call I'd sold. I decided to buy back the option so I could protect my MSFT position. The trade cost me about $12,632 to execute, though I secured about $1,490 in options income, for a net loss of about $11,142. 

While painful, I'm happy that I bought back these options! TROW is trading above $218 per share and MSFT is trading above $300 per share, so buying the options back now would have been even more costly!

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 did not roll forward any options in July.

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 July.

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 did not sell any 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.

Options Income Tally


Here is a running tally of the total amount received from options trades and the options premiums secured due to options that expired or are closed. Secured means I no longer have related obligations and "own" the corresponding options income, free and clear.

Concluding Remarks


July turned out to be the worst month for options trading since I started in June 2016. The main reason is I closed three deep-in-the-money covered calls to either sell the underlying shares or protect the positions from any possible assignment. While these trades were painful to execute, I'm happy to be rid of the obligations I had. 

The lesson learned is to avoid writing covered calls on growth stocks you really want to own for the long run! Furthermore, I should not hesitate to get out of positions that turn against me! Rolling forward options is a sound strategy, but not with deep-in-the-money options!
