On October 26 we established a covered call on EW. Over the next 63 days we rolled the calls on a weekly basis. We also tried buying buying “insurance puts” in late November. On Friday we were “rolling up” a lot of our covered call positions which requires incremental cash. To avoid increasing the margin in the account we decided to let the EW shares get called away. Not sure it is a good time to shut down the position as the graph shows the upward trend in net profitability over the past couple of weeks.
Table below shows the activity with the stock and the options over the past 63 days.
Happy with the return on the position…..I do believe EW is a medical device stock to hold for the long term……so might consider another position in the near future.
