Margin: apprx. $360 on the day this article was published
Pros for this trade:
– A still valid long signal (I’m using the ADX-Indicator), giving a higher probability that the price would hit the strike in the next 42 days. But it’s still unlikely that the price would hit $29 in such brief time span. Therefore, there are higher chances that the price would approach close to the strike at the end of the expiration of the option. So in this case, we are relying only on the time decay. If the price would cross the strike of $29, so much the better!
– A dividend of 3.34% on the day the trade idea was published, in case the price would fall below the strike and you would get the stock assigned (Source: finviz.com)
