Options Expiration – February 2017

I only had one option expire today. It was in my old account and worked out as I hoped it would with an assignment just in the money. I’ll be assigned my one DIS February $110 covered call and will sell my 100 shares of DIS at $110. I bought these 100 shares after being assigned a $115 naked put in January 2016 after selling the put in November 2015. This is the longest hold I’ve had on a single stock in years and I made a realized gain of $43.52┬áincluding premiums.

These shares were in my old account and once the shares are assigned this weekend, I’ll be able to close that account and turn my complete focus to my new account. That is, assuming the closing price I saw at 4:00 held and DIS didn’t settle lower after the close. I did see it was trading lower after hours, but Interactive Brokers and TD Ameritrade show the closing price at $110.06 today versus the $110.02 I saw exactly at 4:00. Sometimes prices settle lower, but I might have lucked out here.
