More Teva Covered Calls to Exit

Based on the rationale discussed here  CCI has decided to exit the portfolio's position in TEVA.

TEVA closed trading Friday  at $45.63.
  • Last weekend one lot of shares was called away via the assignment of the April $45 calls at an effective  price of $45.41
  • Near the market close today, CCI sold the $45 May calls for $1.38 after commission.   If the stock stays above $45 for the next 3 weeks the final lot of Teva shares will be called away for an effective price of $46.38.  In theory there is about a 60% chance of this happening.. If the stock reverses back down this month, this option premium will provide up to a 3% downside hedge.
