Two trades need tweaking, as options expire on our UPS and DE initiatives.
We start with UPS, whose trade details can be found HERE.
To sum, we’re short UPS at $192.97, are long tonight’s 195 CALL, and have a credit of $182.12.
With the CALL expiring we need overhead protection.
And we’re providing it with the purchase of the UPS October 15th 195 CALL for $0.92.
That gives us a buy-in slightly above overhead resistance – right where we want it.
It also reduces our credit (and breakeven) to $181.20.
Next up is our Deere bet, the details of which are located HERE.
In this instance, we’re holding a credit of $17.70 and are short two (2) DE September 24th 315 CALLs.
With DE now trading at $351.50, we’re recommending as follows –
We’re waiting until the close (or on any intraday weakness) and buying back the short CALLs, then selling two (2) DE October 15th 315 CALLs for $36.10 each.
That gives us three more weeks and should maintain our credit above $15.00 (S&P futures currently down 18 points three hours before the open).
We’ll have final numbers for you on Monday.
May the G-d of Israel shine His holy light upon us.
Chag Sameach and Shabbat Shalom!
