My covered call on JNJ expired in the money today.
music selection: “Walk This Way” — Aerosmith
It was a close call by JNJ closed three cents in the money for me today. I have been trying to raise cash to support more put writing as my current dividends already support 93% of my budget. CVX is next with a 20NOV2015 expiry that is also currently in the money by a hair. The market closed while I was fussing with insurance companies. My old homeowner’s policy expires on the third and would require over 1600 to renew. My new quote with Allstate is for 1053 and includes auto liability savings as well.
Next on today’s errands is to pay real estate school taxes. Obamacare enrollment also opens on the first and I need to shop as my current policy will be going up 22% versus last year. I like the coverage but I won’t pay more than 20 dollars a month more to keep my current primary care doctor.
I’ll be back on Monday with a fresh trade for the newly freed up capital.
Devour your prey raptors!
