TtP-S Special Weekend Scan: High Pay CSP Candidates

Here’s the result of a weekend scan for CSP candidates (from the CBOE list of weeklies) that:

1) <$100 stock price

2) >10% coverage (stock can fall that far before a loss)

3) < 100 days to expiration

4) >25% ARoI

5) >$75 premium

Obviously, you MUST do due diligence before making any of these trades (or related). These are HIGH volatility stocks or they wouldn’t meet the above criteria. If you do any of these as part of your strategy, would you mind reporting your experience?

01/08/16’s Buys and Sells Alert at 13:15PST

Another big down day. Bought back a number of CC’s that had lost enough value to produce less than 15% annualized return to expiration, locking in the premium. See below for transactions and notes.

AMAT has been up and down….magnified by market. I’ve been trapped by rolling into higher CC’s at a growing exp distance. Looks like a big bounce for this stock; should have BB earlier this AM

Does the chart below make any sense to you ? (hint it is showing profit picture of all my open positions-in age across the chart–older positions to the left; newer to the right). You KNOW I like to play with excel charts, cramming lots onto a single chart. It helps my OR brain to tease out obscure relationships.:

12/09/15’s Buys and Sells Alert at 13:05PST

This is a normal TtP-S trade…except that I executed it by BUYING WMB instead of CSP because the dividend was near and I wanted to capture it. Got the div, and unusually, the stock jumped to my PT. Good luck beats magic indicators and technical…
