I wrote a long dated put.

Biogen (BIIB) has mostly traded sideways for years. I like its current prospects thanks to an Alzheimer’s drug under development.  The company also shares a 50% in the most likely leading competitor drug for Alzheimer’s plaque removal.

With volatility high, it is possible to write a deep out of the money put that earns an acceptable rate of return.  In this case, I wrote a put with downside protection of 26%.  I sold BIIB220121P00280000 for 52.10 a share.  The trade will be in force for 633 days and yields an expected 10.73% annualized.

I think I’m getting a good return and some upfront cash on a position that is highly unlikely to be assigned.

Devour your prey raptors!

    Reminds me of a TV commercial for the Nerf football in the 1990’s.

    I like your style, but I believe the Biogen JAN 2022 280 put that you wrote is “out of the money,” not “in the money.”

    I enjoy your blog. Nice call on NLY.

    Good luck on your trading!

    Stay safe my friend.
